Corn House Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Located on the owners' 700-acre farm, Corn House is one of two exceptional listed barn conversions in Plaish. Guests have use of the games room and the owners' grounds, including an exclusive 2 mile farm woodland walk, and stabling with hacks and cross country jumps with access to the Jack Mytton Way. With wood burners, exposed beams and lovely views, it's a charming and characterful property. Larger groups should consider hiring both Corn House and its wonderfully named neighbour, Turnip House. The two are connected by a soundproof door and together can accommodate up to 16 people.

Popular with nature lovers, ramblers, equine enthusiasts or those who just enjoy relaxing in bucolic bliss, Plaish and nearby Cardington offers a quiet haven to get away from it all and enjoy a quintessentially English rural break. The larger market towns in the area offer an urban distraction for those who fancy a break from all that peace and quiet, while other attractions in the area include Severn Valley Steam Railway, Action Scott Historic Working Farm, Stokesay Castle and Ironbridge. Fans of the esoteric arts should note: Cardington was owned by the Knights Templar until 1308.

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.

April 2014
It was a wonderful cottage which we would surely book again. The facilities were great and catered for our family from a 7 to a 70 year old. It was safe for the children to play out and use the go carts and tennis courts, they also liked collecting the fresh eggs from the hen house! I would definitely recommend this cottage.
Mrs Easton
October 2013
It was comfortable, warm and spacious with everything we needed. The freedom to use the outdoor area and facilities was a welcome bonus. We felt welcome, and greatly enjoyed our stay.
Mrs Barfield
September 2013
Very spacious, well equipped property in a get away from it all location.
Mrs Whiten
September 2013
Beautiful area. Farmer and wife and family were very welcoming and friendly. Excellent facilities for everybody, and we were a mixed age group. We are seriously thinking of repeating the holiday again next year.
Mrs Everitt
August 2013
A lovely house with lots to do for the children. We were very comfortable in and out of the house. The children loved the tennis court and go-karts. The small children loved feeding the pigs and seeing the chickens. Surrounding countryside very attractive. Would love to go back next year.
Mr Scowen
May 2013
Great accommodation and location. Loads to see and do very nearby. Great accessibility to countryside for cyclists, walkers and horseriders.
Mr Pernet
February 2013
A stunning complex of barn conversions. The immense amount of space available meant still room to breathe, even with a lot of people in one dwelling. The owners had thought of most every eventuality, provided far more than we could have expected. So much for the children with us to do, and all within an amazing rural setting. Welcoming card and bottle of wine was a lovely touch, the home was all prepared for Christmas with a beautifully decorated tree.
Miss Norris
February 2013
The whole place was wonderful, didn't really need to go off site as there was sooo much to do at Corn House.
Ms Ingleby
November 2012
The family who run the farm and the property make that extra special effort to ensure you enjoy your stay - pony rides for the children for example. This property is brilliantly equipped for family stays. It is a real home from home. So comfortable and cosy. Can't recommend it enough!
Mr Carling
October 2012
We loved the location and the fact we were welcomed onto the farm and encouraged to interact with the farm animals. The children's play area was fantastic for kids of all ages (from 1 to 40!!). The owners who live in the main house were also very accommodating and helpful.
Mr Walton
August 2012
The additional facilities not normally found with a holiday cottage - farm walks and animals, lake and rowing boat, games inc. tennis court, table tennis, go karts, snooker etc. We all - children and adults, had a great time!
Mr Quick
September 2012
Proximity to good walking locations which was the main purpose of the holiday.
Mrs Cooke
July 2012
This was a wonderful barn conversion. It had furnishings that made it feel like a home rather than a holiday home. The all weather tennis court was a hit with the boys and having the badminton net in the triple garage meant they could still keep busy if the weather was wet.
Mrs Windeatt
November 2011
A fantastic, well presented cottage. Great entertainment with the pool table and table tennis.
Mrs Church
December 2011
Very lovely spacious property in a rural location, farm animals on site for the children to see and fresh eggs to collect. Great for a family weekend.
Mr Palmer
September 2011
The cottage was extremely well presented with some lovely touches. It was very homely and there were no corners cut in relation to the facilities. The owners and their family were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were happy for the week. The local info was very useful and we spent lots of time enjoying the farm walks and lakes.
Ms Tyson
April 2011
Little touches like soap and shampoo in the bathrooms. There has been a lot of attention given to detail. Owners were also very friendly and welcoming.
Mrs Hudson
July 2011
Lovely house, friendly chickens and helpful owner - giving information about local amenities, places to visit etc. Plenty of space in the house - was just like home with nice decor etc.
Mrs Hardy

The accommodation was well located for visiting places of interest and was pretty much central to all major towns.
Miss Watson
December 2009
Liked everything. Corn House was the ideal place for a relaxing break just before Christmas and sitting round the log burner on an evening was sheer luxury. We'll definitely be back.
Mr Field

Mr Eley
May 2007
The owner was particularly friendly and accommodating. My husband was particularly impressed with your brochure - especially not having to go to the back of it to find the price. The Longville Arms is great for food and hospitality
Mr Macleod
April 2007
Corn House is situated in a nice quiet area and is easily accessible. The attention paid to the needs of children is welcomed i.e. toys, games room, books etc.
Mrs Foster
March 2007
The accommodation was very comfortable, so therefore we were able to relax with our friends. The countryside was stunning. The restaurants in Ludlow excellent, part of our criteria for a good break.
Mrs Tanner
February 2007
House was very child friendly and great for entertaining, we were a group of 7 friends and had a wonderful time. The Royal Oak Pub in nearby Cardington was a huge bonus, very friendly staff and great traditional pub food.... and best of all within walking distance!
Mrs Spenser

Mrs Ebbs
May 2006
Fantastic property, we had 4 children all under the age of 4 and it was excellent for them, we couldn't get them out of the sand pit! The views were lovely from the property and the kids loved seeing the farm animals. We hope to visit there again.
Rev Butler
April 2006
The accommodation was excellent - allowing space and privacy for a large and varied party. The location was peaceful and handily located for country walks, pond dipping and real ale at the local pub. It was also a good centre for many of the historic sites of Shropshire. The owners were really helpful and the Corn house provided us with a beautiful and interesting setting for a very enjoyable relaxing holiday!
Mr Wilson
April 2006
The owners were perfect hosts and ensured that we enjoyed our holiday fully from providing recommendations of the various takeaways/restaurants in the area to providing horse rides for my wife and daughter...
Ms Best
November 2005
The cottage was made for relaxing in, everything was working and the decor was simple and well thought out. It was a luxurious home from home. The location was beautiful and the owners had left lots of information to enable us to make the most of our stay in the area.
Mr Leggatt
December 2004
Space to wander was good e.g. Kite flying from paddock adjacent to house. View from garden (especially Turnip) was spectacular. Hills to see inspire a walk.
Mr Scott
December 2004
Very spacious accomodation. Ideal for young children-lots of play equipment.
Dr Aris
February 2005
A pleasant, spacious property. Owners welcoming to us and our family dog. Excellent walking - including from the house.
Ms Turvey

It was fantasic to have a well equiped kitchen. The whole property was a credit to the owners and in excellant order. It was great to have en-suite horses! Great location for those with children.
Mr Rodgers
December 2004
Over a wet winter week-end there was still plenty to see in the area a short car journey away.
Mr Horton
December 2004
A very warm welcome from the owners and family. Great walks directly from the house. A really beautiful area.
Mr & Mrs Wade
December 2004
The standard of the accommodation was superb and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The best cottage we have experienced.
Ms Gilbert
December 2004
Property exceptional, probably the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. We shall return. The area was unfamiliar to us and we enjoyed exploring the area, Coalbookdale and Ironbridge are fascinating and the walking is wonderful, less well known than the Lakes or the Peaks but just as enjoyable.
Mrs Davis
December 2004
Sara was particularly welcoming and helpful with local information. Good walking from the door. We were allowed free access to the farm land with the dogs. Plenty of room so that we could all find our own space when we wanted to.
Mr Kelly
December 2004
Good accommodation, very quiet, nice patio area with barbecue, Royal Oak pub in Cardington v good food. Easy travelling distance to Shrewsbury & Ludlow.
Mrs Quinton
December 2004
Corn House was superb, we also had Turnip House which was also superb. Both properties were so well equipped, from towels and bedding to barbeque coals, toilet rolls, cleaning materials, dishwasher and a starter pack of wood for the fire. The best accommodation we have ever had.
Mr Edwards
December 2004
What an absolute pleasure it was to spend a week in such wonderful surroundings not only the countryside but the barn itself was superb. Great thought had been taken when furnishing the property, and such helpful owners you could not ask for anything else. Fantastic food at the Longville Arms
Mrs Bearne
December 2004
The property is beautiful and situated in a quiet location with absolutely no traffic noise. The owners were lovely and keen to let our girls ride the ponies. The pool room (as in snooker/pool not swimming) was a real hit in the evenings. The man-made pools on the farm are a lovely feature and provided tranquillity.

A weekend away with friends, 2 families with children aged 6 to 14. Lovely quirky holiday house on different levels with lots of space. Own little garden with sun chairs and BBQ as well as the wider farm area. We were lucky with the weather and made use of the little boat, the farm walks and the games areas. Kids loved the go karts. Fab large dinning table - would seat 12! Only think is the kitchen could probably do with a bit of updating / decluttering. will definitely return.

We have just stayed here for the bank holiday weekend for my 50th birthday we hired the corn house and the spinney retreat for our family and some friends as there was 12 of us altogether. We have had an amazing few days the house is brilliant there was plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen is really well equipped has everything you need, was a big help having two fridges in there to cope with all the food we took. Our bedroom was lovely plenty of room and storage space. Our grandchildren loved the play area and so did the adults playing Tennis and basketball and also going on the go karts shame weather wasn't a bit nicer. The men also spent a lot of time in the games rooms having competitons against each other. Our friends who stayed in the Spinney Retreat said how lovely and peaceful it was. Cant wait to go back again great place for us to all get together .

A wonderful place to stay with 3 generation family. House really comfortable and well equipped. Super grounds to explore and play. Everyone enjoyed go-carts,facilities suited all ages.

The accommodation was extremely well equipped and most comfortable, it was the proverbial home from home. The location was great too perfect for visits to towns such as Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Much Wenlock and Church Stretton. The cottage is also in a great location for accessing footpaths, off-road cycling tracks and bridleways. The owner, Sara Jones, is extremely helpful and friendly.
October 2013
A lovely place for a family get together. Owner very helpful. Site well in the country and peaceful. The children loved the wandering chickens, the pigs and the tennis court. The go-karts were a success with the adult children too! Excellent butcher in Much Wenlock! Lovely countryside to visit. We had a superb time and would love to go back another year.
September 2012

The Travellers.
August 2011
The barn was very well furnished although I felt that the lower groundfloor bedroom did not have much drawer space for two people and the ensuite could have had a larger sink to enable you to wash if you did not use the shower.The steps down to the lower floor were rather steep and my elderly father found them difficult to use.On a plus point it was very comfortable and I liked the top floor bedroom with ensuite.It would have been nice to have wifi which comes in useful if you are planning a day out or need contact by email.However the owner was obliging if you needed to use their connection at the house.It was a lovely setting and easy to find.Just wish the weather could have been better!
December 2009
cottage was much bigger than picture shows, very well appointed. The owners and locals very friendly - good advice on local places of interest ie oldest yew tree in local Britian in a local church grounds. For dog owners - you can walk the dogs all over the farm - lots of interesting places for them off their leads. Lots of places to visit walk.
January 2010
The cottage is very clean and spacious. We all with 4 hearing dogs for Deaf People love this cottage, had a great time. Nice garden, but could not go into the garden very often due to ongoing raining! The TV is small and old, played the Wii on this TV, but have to be closer as the screen is quite small! The location was not too bad, but a lots of narrow roads and no shop near by. We have done a lots of walking, had a map from the cottage, but it wasn't clear as we got lost few times! Had a great lunch at Ironbridge.
Mrs Dudley
November 2014
Such a beautiful week in Corn House for my birthday with my family and dogs. Dogs absolutely loved running round grounds and didn't want to leave. Overwhelmed by the kindness of staff and how helpful they were. The kitchen and utensils could not be faulted, everything you would ever need and more. I would like to say a massive thank you for a very enjoyable stay by all.
Mr Turner
January 2015
The whole ambience was fantastic, a real home from home. The children could play outside without any worry for their safety, which allowed the adults to relax. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable experience and the attention to detail was second to none.
Mrs Harkins
July 2015
The facilities for the children were fantastic and the cottage was a great size for two families, plenty of space.
