The Old Byre description

Holiday home
The Old Byre is a detached barn conversion on the edge of the village of Caynham just three miles from Ludlow. The cottage sleeps four people and has one double bedroom with en-suite bath and one twin bedroom with en-suite shower. Also in the cottage is a fitted kitchen with dining area and sitting area with woodburning stove and French doors. Outside is off road parking for three cars and a decked garden with furniture and BBQ. Situated in the heart of south Shropshire, The Old Byre is a lovely family cottage all year round.

This historic, picturesque village lies in the heart of the beautiful South Shropshire countryside and is set amidst renowned scenic walking and cycling country. The village's outstanding landmark is Caynham Camp, a huge Bronze Age/Iron Age earthwork which covers a site of eight acres at the summit, from which wonderful views can be enjoyed. Only 3 miles away is Ludlow, whose medieval street pattern remains almost intact, and provides a fascinating backdrop for the town's regular street markets, held in the shadow of the castle. Ludlow is renowned for its shopping, and has several Michelin-starred restaurants, as well as numerous tea-shops, pubs and inns.

A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.

A beautiful barn conversion with a high spec finish and tasteful furnishings. Wow! what a view. Very comfortable and clean. So relaxing.

The house was immaculate and very well equipped. The underfloor heating and gas fire made it very cosy and warm on cold days, and the west facing patio was ideal when the weather became warmer. There is a beautiful outlook over fields, and the house is well located for exploring the area.

The Byre was homely, very fresh and clean. We particularly loved the fire and comfortable sofas. There were beautiful views from the property and it had a relaxed feel about it.

We chose The Old Byre because of its location and because it had 2 bedrooms, both of which were en suite. We were not expecting such a stunning cottage. Everything was perfect; from the underfloor heating to the magnificent gas fire in the living area. The owner of the cottage was most welcoming and informative. The Old Byre is thoroughly recommended for all occasions.

The property was a lot better than expected, the owner was their if required. After visiting Shropshire for 20 years this is by far the best one yet, 5 star plus.

The exceptional standard of The Old Byre was a wonderful surprise. The owner was so friendly and helpful he made us feel at home the moment we stepped out of the car. The cottage is also in a wonderful setting with views out onto fields.

We have been in many five star cottages in England and many Swiss and Austrian Hotels that have been five star. This cottage is beautiful and the standard of the cottage is definitely five star as well as being in a delightful area. Caynham village is only three miles from historic Ludlow. We arrived on Friday to a warm welcome from the owner Ray who with his wife Jill were very friendly and helpful. The cottage is open plan but thoughtfully designed so that it was extremely cosy as well as being thoroughly modern and up to date.All the appliances and furniture were lovely. There were two bedrooms both en suite and very comfortable. The lounge had two reclining sofas with floor to ceiling duplex windows which looked out onto a beautiful vista of fields and trees. There was a dining room and all the furniture was of light oak - it all fitted perfectly with the beamed byre. We found it great being only three miles from Ludlow but right in the countryside.We even heard barn owls at night which sounded as though they were sat on our roof. We would absolutely recommend this cottage for a really relaxing and comforable break. Would return in a heartbeat.

Stayed at this delightful cottage for one week, wish it could have been longer. It's a very well appointed cottage, with both bedrooms having an ensuite each, comfortable beds, TV's in each bedroom, large comfortable lounge with decent size TV, gas fire (didn't need) nice dining room, large kitchen with everything you need. Downstairs toilet, underfloor heating throughout the cottage and lovely patio. The owners of the farm Ray & Jill are a delightful couple, very hospitable and a wealth of knowledge of the area. The cottage is only a short drive into Ludlow, if you're there Friday or Saturday they have a great market, great places to eat and the Ludlow Castle is worth a visit. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone visiting the Shropshire District
