Great Lyth Farm Cottages

A wonderful opportunity to enjoy two delightful 18th century Grade II listed barn conversions, which have been sympathetically developed to offer well equipped accommodation in an idyllic rural location, 5 miles from medieval Shrewsbury. They stand close to the owner's farmhouse, surrounded by lovely grounds, within a 22 acre smallholding which is home to sheep, chickens and an extensive organic kitchen garden from which eggs and seasonal vegetables are available. Both cottages have a pretty, fenced garden; perfect for dining alfresco. Guests have use of a year-round hard tennis court and coarse fishing (including carp) on the picturesque and well-stocked 1 acre pond, only 100 yards away. Enjoy walking and cycling in the stunning Shropshire Hills, or discover the Ironbridge World Heritage Site, Stokesay Castle and Acton Scott Historic Farm. Booked together, Ref 2601 and 2602 can accommodate 11 people.

Lovely walks close by and great place from which to explore the area. Note this is advertised as not having internet connection but there is free wifi in several places in Shrewsbury.”

    • “Fabulous Family Cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Close enough to a town but far enough into rural Shropshire, this cottage was an absolute delight. We were greeted with an immaculate and pretty cottage in super grounds. There was even a plate of tray bakes in the fridge which didn't last long at all! Our two very young children loved the place and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners, who even took us egg hunting in their hen enclosure - my three year old daughter has not stopped talking about this or about Stanley the peacock. The rooms were a perfect size, the facilities fabulous and the beds very comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to anyone and will in fact return regularly when time permits!”
