The Hop Barn description

Holiday home
The Hop Barn is a former barn cottage, located in the rural village of Neen Sollars, three miles from Cleobury Mortimer in Shropshire. This 'upside down cottage' sleeps four people and has two ground floor bedrooms consisting of a super king size double with an additional folding single bed that can be used on request, and a single bedroom, as well as a family bathroom. The cottage also has a first floor living area with a kitchen, dining and sitting area with woodburning stove. To the outside of this cottage, there is ample off road parking and sitting area with furniture and BBQ. The Hop Barn is a lovely cottage suitable for a family holiday or romantic retreat.

Cleobury Mortimer is a delightful little town at the very heart of the countryside of beautiful South Shropshire. The historic market towns of Bridgnorth and Ludlow with its impressive castle, and Ironbridge Gorge and its 10 museums are within easy driving distance. Cleobury Mortimer itself has an interesting variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, and visitors are always amazed by its famous church, a unique building that has a quirky crooked steeple. The nearby Clee Hills and Wyre Forest offer some superb walking opportunities, and other outdoor pursuits such as fishing, golf and horse riding can all be enjoyed close by.

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.

Beautiful gardens, the barn was beautifully decorated with a very homely feel.

Lovely surroundings, interesting house and garden. There was a safe paddock to exercise our dog in. The owners are nice people, there if needed but considering how close to their house the Hop Barn is quite private. We're very pleased all round.

The Hop Barn was beautiful and spacious. Liked the surrounding countryside, Neen Sollars and the whole ambience of the place.

The Hop Barn is a lovely cottage in a lovely area. It is an ideal centre for visiting Ludlow, Bridgnorth, Worcester and Stourport and the great countryside of south Shropshire. There were lots of great pubs in the area for eating out and sampling the many local beers! The owners are helpful and friendly.

The cottage was well appointed, spacious and comfortable. The owners were very welcoming yet respected our privacy. The gardens were beautiful and we enjoyed visiting the horses.

Second visit - still as good as the first. Very cosy, with beams and privacy. Upside-down house, with excellent views from all aspects.
Miss Cox

The cottage was absolutely beautiful, and exactly as described. The owners were on hand if required, but did not interfere with my visit at all. A fantastic place to stay, with walks right outside the door.

I didn't come for a holiday but for a filming location. The interior was perfect for the setting of my film and for all the crew ans cast to stay in.
Miss Payne

Everything was brilliant. The Hop Barn is extremely well presented and the owners are very helpful, friendly and informative. We will definitely return in warmer weather to enjoy the garden and the walks from the village.

Had a great short break, it ticked every box.
Mr Baghurst
October 2011
The 'upside down' nature of the accommodation was a real bonus. The large sitting room/kitchen area is superb and can easily be heated using the woodburner alone. We were able to turn the heating almost off and were still very comfortable. There is a vast library of books, CDs, etc and copious amounts of local information.

Remote quiet location with very friendly and helpful residents. The Pub is excellent value and very good food and beer.
Mr Northup

The location is remote but beautiful and quiet. The rural setting is great to feel the local culture. It was a once in a lifetime vacation and the setting was great for visiting area attractions.
Mrs Goodwin

A most peaceful spot - all we heard was birds and animals. The garden was ours to enjoy and the property was furnished as a home with fresh flowers and lovely pictures. There was plenty of space.
Mrs Hopkins
April 2011
The owner made us most welcome and had left much information on the local surrounding area and places to visit. Use of the garden was wonderfully relaxing and luxurious. This is the second time we have booked a cottage with Sykes in 2 months and both experiences have been fabulous. Would definitely being using you again and recommending you to friends!
Mrs Steadman
November 2010
Lovely cottage and ideal for walks, the dog loved it!! Cosy feel and quirky with the living area upstairs but the wood burner and the general decor made it feel a relaxing, cosy environment. Bedroom was great - super kingsize which is what we have at home so it was nice to have a big bed! Overall, great place and no need to leave the hamlet as the walks start and finish at your door.
Mrs Chant

Neen Sollars is in such a lovely part of the country, the walking was fantastic. The owners were extremely welcoming and hospitable. The Hop Barn was spotlessly clean, well equipped.

Mr Masefield
December 2008
The location was absolutely superb and if, like us, you were looking for a relaxing break you could not have found a more perfect place in such beautiful surroundings. The village itself is like a postcard location with Tudor houses and a village feel. The property that we stayed in was lovely, very relaxing and everything that you could ask for. The owners were lovely people and although their house was in close proximity to the barn you never felt intruded and made to feel very welcome.
Mr Mrs Howie

A very tastefully renovated building, the Hop Barn is situated in beautiful grounds in a largely undiscovered corner of Shropshire. The barn is warm, very comfortable, and well furnished with little personal touches that make you feel at home the moment you walk in the door. The owners are so welcoming that it restores you faith in human nature. Great walks from the front door or starting further afield.
Mr Mrs Edge
August 2006
We were made to feel very welcome by the owner and her family. The barn is homely and the gardens are outstanding. The rural location is wonderful to explore Shropshire, which is great for walking and cycling - this country's 'hidden gem.'
Mrs Bedford

A great place to stay - so quiet and peaceful. I cannot fault the cottage.
Mrs Herbert

It was a lovely rural retreat in a quiet village setting and the owner made us very welcome. The country furnishings were very cosy and the double bed was extremely comfortable. The surrounding countryside was perfect for our rambling activities.

The area was lovely - Stokesay and Ludlow castle are great.
Mrs Jenkinson

A very pretty retreat, very relaxing, with lots of personal touches, and an excellent wood burning stove. We wish we'd stayed longer.
Mr Mrs Harcourt

I like the area. The barn was very cosy.
Mrs Bedford
September 2005
I spent the week with a friend. What a great place to stay if you want to switch off and have some peace and quiet. Not a sound; except the usual country sounds, can be heard at the cottage. Coming from the flat fens, we were amazed at the rolling hills. We did lots of walking; getting lost once! We visited most stately homes and other famous places. We particularly liked Ironbridge. You could have spent days there. We managed 4 museums and liked the Victorian village in particular. We found the local people friendly and helpful. The cottage had every mod-con you could want. I was impressed by Sykes themselves and the way the holiday was booked so easily and all the directions given superb. I would use you again.
Mrs Moseley

Relaxed atmosphere.
Mr Adams

The Hop Barn interior was very well appointed/presented. It was obvious that a lot of hard work and thought had gone into it. Lots to see and do in the area. Many high quality pubs that are family friendly. Especially recommend the pub at Hopton Wafers.
Mr Carson
December 2004
Very comfortable accommodation in an area rich in heritage. Witley Court is particularly lovely. The church there is a must-see.
Mrs Sharpe
December 2004
The pub in the village did great food as did the India restaurant in Cleobury Mortimer.The wood burning stove was fantastic.The local craft centre at Mamble had a lovely tea room.Fishing on the River Rea was excellent.
Mrs McKnight
December 2004
The location is great with fantastic walking, and so much to see in the area. Best of all was coming back at the end of the day to a lovely cottage, lighting the wood burning stove, and relaxing!
Mrs Torrance
December 2004
The whole holiday was marvelous - the weather was unbelievable, the area had plenty to see and do - castles especially. The property owners were very friendly - especially the pets! The garden was lovely and being able to use it in the evenings was much appreciated.
Mrs Augier

The peace and tranquility of the Hop Barn - a real feeling of having got away from the hustle and bustle of daily life - the whole week was superb.

Spend 2 weeks with 2 adults and a 3 and 7 year old. The surrounding countryside is spectacular and the animals all vey friendly. The accommodation has been really well designed and allowed us to blend in comfortably. The hottest day of the year was no issue with roof vents and cool bedrooms below ground level. Excellent central heating when required. Good light and space. Bedrooms and bathroom occupy full-footprint second storey, not obvious from the pictures. Time slowed down for us and made our 2 weeks feel more like 3-4. Wonderful break from work.
April 2015
I spent a very happy week here with my partner and 12 year old. It's a beautiful, comfortable, well-equipped property in a stunning part of the country, and we would certainly wish to return. The living room is so cozy we loved spending time 'in' despite our best intentions to be out from dawn to dusk doing things. The master bedroom has a wonderful mattress and lots of good books. The owners were responsive, professional, and friendly, even running us up to the (very delicious local) pub for dinner on our arrival. My daughter loved the proximity to the sheep, horse, cows, and the orange cat. It feels nicely like you've dropped off the edge of the earth, with the high hedgerows throughout the tiny village, but this is wonderful. Additionally, it is situated beautifully for many interesting day trips. Loved it, and would absolutely return!
October 2012
enjoyed every second here both location and decor superb
July 2010
The property was hidden away down a slightly scarily narrow road (though it seemed to widen with practice), so very quiet. A small place but characterful, bright and comfortable.
September 2015
Our stay at Hop Barn was very enjoyable and It proved to be an excellent base for exploring Shropshire with our dog. The cottage itself is warm and is well equipped with plenty of space to relax in. Our host was on holiday for most of our stay, but her friends and neighbours proved very helpful and friendly. The garden is enclosed, which meant that our dog could be safely let out, though she barked rather a lot at the cows and the other dogs and at night when she heard anyone outside in the gravel. The internet is a little slow making it impossible to stream video, but otherwise fine.
January 2012
The cottage was perfect for what we needed and the owners really helpful and friendly.
December 2009
I can't actually remember which month I stayed here. I liked the layout very much. It was spacious and interesting. The owner was away however and I returned one afternoon to find the cleaners there. They thought I had left. (the owner did not apologise for this intrusion.) The bedroom is below ground level so has a dampish smell, but with heaters and electric blanket I was warm enough.I liked the facilities and furnishings. I had difficulty with the door lock, but got it working with WD40. I would stay again, but find it too expensive for just the two of us.
