    “Gorgeous peaceful and relaxing”
    We've recently returned from a week at The Byre, the cottage itself is beautiful, the fixtures and fittings are better quality than you'd usually expect from a rental. The bathroom especially is luxurious and gorgeous, I think the mattress was a memory foam one (it was super comfy regardless!) the garden area and hot tub were superb! The hot tub was a real winner! Couldn't get enough of it. The cottage is perfect for wrexham, llangollen, Shrewsbury and Chester. It being dog friendly was also ...

A converted wing of a brick-built barn, in a superb rural location with direct access into Fenn's, Whixall and Bettisfield Mosses National Nature Reserve, a fantastic area for birdwatching and exploring British wildlife, on the edge of the scattered village of Bronington near Whitchurch.

About the location


Whitchurch 5 miles; Ellesmere 6 miles.

The rural scattered village of Bronington sits on the borders of Shropshire, Cheshire and North Wales between the historic market towns of Whitchurch and Ellesmere in the Welsh county of Wrexham, and is close to the medieval town of Shrewsbury, and the World Heritage Site at Ironbridge. Here lies the 948 hectare Whixall Moss National Nature Reserve, one of the "jewels in the crown" of British wildlife. There are lovely walks towards the Llangollen canal throughout the reserve, which is alive with bog plants and wildlife. Whitchurch is a delightful town which has many splendid buildings, all dominated by St. Alkmund's Church. Close by is Ellesmere, with its beautiful meres (lakes), a variety of National Trust mansions and gardens including Attingham and Tatton Parks, the wonderful shops and zoo at Chester, the Wroxeter Roman City, the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge with its famous museums and the lovely medieval towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow.
