This immaculately-presented barn conversion is one of several cottages in a courtyard setting, on the owners’ working cattle farm with views of beautiful Shropshire hills and countryside, 1.25 miles from the historic village of Leighton and only 5.5 miles from the famous World Heritage Site of Ironbridge.

Beautifully converted and oozing rustic charm, The Barn offers guests an idyllic rural retreat that’s ideal for a small family or group of friends who wish to explore all that Shropshire has to offer.

Set all on one floor, this superb cottage has a lovely country style kitchen with dining area, which opens out into a very inviting sitting room with deep sofas and a warming woodburning stove.

From the sitting room step out through the French doors to the secluded south-facing gravelled garden area with a barbecue and outdoor furniture, from where you may wish to enjoy an early morning coffee whilst admiring the views, or relax with a cold drink in the evening.

Two spacious and well-furnished bedrooms and a lovely large shower room complete the accommodation at this delightful holiday home.
