We stayed for a few nights in November with family, including two small children. The barn is absolutely lovely and you could really notice the recent refurbishment and the attention that the owners have put into the property.
The welcome instructions and directions were incredibly helpful given that the barn in quite remote. Plenty of parking space available next to the property and the outside is very well maintained. The barn is located next to a few others, but it is not congested and plenty of outside space for seating and bbq (although not in November'!!).
Upon arrival the barn was lovely and warm and it was brilliant to find that the owners had baked us some brownies and left fresh bread and farm eggs for our stay.
The standard of accommodation was very high and there was plenty of room. The kitchen is a very good size and you would not go wanting for anything. The owners have catered for absolutely everything within the kitchen/dining and even provide a supply of tea and coffee. Very good sized fridge freezer for bringing ur own food and separate utility for washer etc.
The lounge is large and very cosy with log burner within. DVD player provided and a movie library of DVD's, with some cracking choices. There is also lots of games available too in the cupboard.
The upstairs consists of four bedrooms, all of which are a very good size. One has ensure and their is a separate family bathroom. The Beds were really comfy to.
He owners visited briefly after we arrived just to check we had everything we needed which was also a very nice touch.
The views from the barn of the surrounding countryside are stunning and there is obviously plenty of lovely walks surrounding.
There is nothing within walking distance of the barn, in terms of a shop, pub or restaurant etc. Everything would be a drive. However, for our stay we took plenty of food and cooked which was lovely to relax in the barn.
Having taken two young kids, the owners provided stair gates up and down stairs as well as one for around the log burner. Their is also a high chair should u wish and travel cots provided.
Distance wise both Oswestry and Shrewsbury are roughly 45 minutes away for day trips and plenty of little villages much closer.
I can't recommend this barn enough for a short break. It is a great standard of accommodation in a very picturesque, relaxing setting.
