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.
