    “Owl Barn is in a lovely quiet location yet close to everything of interest in the area.”

    Hosts were charming and welcoming and the same goes for the accommodation. Second bedroom may be a little cosy for adults but overall the cottage was spacious, fitted out to a very high standard and comfortable. It was a pleasure to return there after days out. No enclosed garden for dogs but mine was more than happy to explore the grounds on a lead. The conservatory was a bonus with lovely views across the countryside and front row seats for the sunsets. Hope to return soon.

Dating back to the Iron Age and said to have been called 'my little town in the orchard' by Queen Victoria, Tenbury Wells boasts a unique 18th century bridge built by Thomas Telford, the magnificent Pump Rooms, which housed baths where local mineral water was available, and many other listed buildings dating back to the 17th century. Close by are many National Trust properties including Croft Castle and Berrington Hall, plus the Judge's Lodgings in Presteigne, Stokesay Castle, the renowned Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre and the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm are well worth a visit.
