The property

Cockshutt 0.75 miles.

A large and attractive semi-detached barn conversion located on the owners’ working arable farm, just less than one mile from the small village of Cockshutt and five miles from the town of Ellesmere, in the heart of lovely Shropshire countryside.

Beautifully furnished throughout, this superb barn has exposed beams and stone and wood floors downstairs, and provides spacious accommodation for large family gatherings or groups of friends.

As you step into the entrance hall with its beautiful stone flagged floor you immediately get a sense of how wonderful this barn conversion is.

On the ground floor there’s a magnificent and well-equipped kitchen/diner with plenty of seating, a comfy sofa and large TV, and from here you walk into the large sitting room with exposed timbers and wooden flooring.

Sit and relax in one of the comfortable reclining sofas or enjoy a board game after a day exploring the area.

A twin bedroom with a single sofa bed, table football and TV is also on this floor and provides an ideal space for children to make their own.

Make your way upstairs where you will find four pretty bedrooms, including one with a delightful ornate bed frame on which is a super king-size bed and two rooms have en-suite facilities.

Outside there is a paved area to sit and relax, whilst looking out to the small lake in the garden and beyond to the lovely Shropshire countryside; the only disturbance being the sound of quacking ducks, what a great way to unwind at the end of the day!

The Barn is within easy driving distance to the north Shropshire towns of Ellesmere and Wem, both of which have an excellent range of shops.

The county town of Shrewsbury and the city of Chester are also easily accessible and have much to offer in the way of historical interest, shops, restaurants, beautiful buildings and cobbled streets.

The Barn is a fabulous base to explore the whole of Shropshire, as well as venturing into south Cheshire and across the border to Wales.
