Shrewsbury 9 miles; Ellesmere Lakes 10 miles.
The picturesque village of Clive centres around the charming manor house of Clive Hall, situated on the steep wooded slopes of Grinshill, 9 miles from medieval Shrewsbury. This stunning area, famous for its ancient mines and beautiful natural stone production boasts numerous scenic walks and cycle routes, all with stunning views of the nearby Welsh mountain peaks. Historic Shrewsbury, located on the banks of the River Severn, boasts a wealth of timber framed, black and white buildings in addition to its fine selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. Shrewsbury Abbey, founded in 1083 and famous for being the home of the fictional Brother Cadfael, is well worth a visit, as is Shrewsbury Castle, an impressive building set in beautiful gardens and housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. A great holiday location at any time of the year.

Previous visitors' comments about Ivy Barn:
There was rain and flooding during our week and whilst it didn't hamper our outings it was especially nice to have somewhere so comfortable and spacious to return to. We can't praise the barn highly enough and the church bells were the icing on the cake!
Mrs Cooke, Huntingdon, September 2012
Ivy Barn was a pleasant place to stay. Adequately supplied with all that one could ask for in making you feel relaxed and at home. Plus a very helpful caretaker. Lovely countryside and people.
Mrs Ansbro, Shrewsbury, June 2012
We liked the cottage and the area around, and we hope to return again next year.
Mrs Newnes, Leyland, May 2012
The peace of the village and the overall quality of the accommodation was excellent. We had a wonderful week.
