The Property

A lovely ground floor barn conversion on a working farm, wonderfully sited in 200 acres of the owner's land, just opposite the medieval church in the pretty rural village of Stapleton.

Furnished to a high standard, the property boasts stone flagged flooring and makes an ideal romantic retreat. The amenities of Church Stretton and Shrewsbury are within easy reach, as are the rest of Shropshire's attractions and superb walking country. A lovely base at any time of year.
