The Dairy Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
This delightful, brick-built semi-detached barn conversion has been thoughtfully renovated to provide a romantic retreat for two people that is both characterful and comfortable. The accommodation is all on ground level and the living space is open plan. The cosy lounge area has a log effect electric stove and makes the room an inviting space, whilst the modern kitchen is well equipped and has a charming dining area. The tastefully decorated bedroom is spacious and elegant and has the advantage of an en-suite shower room. Outside the property is a small courtyard to the front with furniture and views across to the Long Mountain. With some of the original beams and exposed stonework still in place, this is a beautiful property from which to enjoy this wonderful area.

The village of Leighton goes back many centuries and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1087. It is only four miles from the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, home of the world's first bridge to be constructed of iron, built between 1777 and 1779. The Ironbridge Gorge is situated in a beautiful wooded valley and the village of Leighton is home to a variety of public houses, restaurants, tea-rooms and shops, and a collection of separately themed locations make up the Ironbridge Museums. The National Trust Properties of Attingham Hall and Park are close by as well as the fascinating Wroxeter Roman City and Vineyard. With a wealth of historical attractions and a host of outdoor pursuits, this area has a lot to offer visitors at any time of year.

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.

The Dairy was a perfect place to stay. It had everything you needed to make use of and was very cosy. We had a very warm welcome from the owners. It was a really good base to see and do all the lovely local attractions. A week wasn't long enough!

The area was fantastic and very peaceful. We absolutely loved the area, and there was a lot to see and do. There was nothing not to like about our holiday.

The Dairy was perfect for the two of us. Just the right size and had everything we needed for our stay. The surrounding area is lovely, can't wait to see it again in the summer months. The owner was very helpful and accommodating and considering it was a working farm there was no disturbance from the daily activities.

The setting was beautiful, and could not have picked a better location to tour the area. The barn conversion was extremely well done and deceptively spacious.

We stayed here in late January for 10 days as we had to be in the area for family and did not fancy the time in a hotel (or the cost). We followed the directions from the website to the letter and found the farm straight away and were greated by Derek and Molly the Collie. The cottage was all ready for us and warm and we had a lovely homemade cake awaiting our arrival. All the utensils required were in the kitchen and the on site laundry facility proved so useful too. The area is central to not only the ironbridge gorge museums but also the shopping areas of Telford and Shrewsbury a little further away. The Wrekinis a short drive away for walking and the lanes are relatively quiet too. All I all we wiould highly recommend the dairy
