The property

This charming, semi-detached barn conversion is situated in the grounds of the owner's home, in the rural hamlet of Farlow, surrounded by beautiful Shropshire countryside.

Boasting rural charm throughout oak floors, vaulted beamed ceilings and its stunning exterior, Foxholes Barn is an ideal base for a romantic retreat.

Step inside to the amply-equipped kitchen/diner to find all you could need to prepare a romantic meal for two amidst sleek and stylish worktops; take a seat at the table or carry the conversation outside and enjoy the summer breeze amidst your serene surroundings from the comfort of your very own patio area.

An oak staircase leads from the kitchen up to the first floor where you will find the sumptuous sitting area offering the best views in the house; here you can kick back and relax with a film on the television, with a wide selection of DVDs provided to choose from, or simply relish in quality time with your loved one.

Also on the first floor is the welcoming double bedroom, beautifully furnished by the owner, with plenty of personal touches to offer you a homely setting for your stay.

Begin the day with a refreshing shower in the ground-floor shower room, the heated rail keeping your towel toasty before putting on your walking gear and setting out to explore the owner's large garden which offers further seating for relaxation.

Sitting on the fringes of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you can expect to find a variety of walks to be enjoyed from the doorstep too, with the Shropshire and Jack Mytton Ways running close by, with plenty of opportunities for cycling, fishing and golf too, perfect for the outdoor enthusiast.

Just over four miles away is the pretty town of Cleobury Mortimer, with stunning Georgian and Tudor architecture, many individual shops, tea rooms and traditional pubs, it offers all you could need for a self-catered stay, as well as Ludlow, with its Michelin-starred restaurants being well-worth a visit for a tantalizing dining experience like no other.

Spend a day in Church Stretton to see the renowned Stretton Antiques Market where you're sure to find the perfect souvenir to take home, while Kidderminster boasts a wide range of high street stores making a lovely place to while away the hours on a more leisurely day out.

Ideally situated for a romantic retreat filled with outdoor adventure, Foxholes Barn provides a beautiful base from which to explore this exciting area of Shropshire.

  • “Thank you to Clare, Chris and Gus the dog for their warm welcome and in providing a beautiful, comfortable and well equipped cottage.”

    Farlow is a hamlet off the beaten track but within reach of Georgian Ludlow with its much older castle, the Hereford Black & White village trail and splendid walking on the Long Mynd and Wenlock Edge. Highly recommend this wonderful cottage.
