    A lovely, comfortable, cosy place, set in absolutely glorious countryside. And how nice to be woken by birdsong rather than traffic!

Bryncalled Barn Cottages

Bucknell 2 miles. Four exceptional, semi-detached, stone-built, 18th century Grade II listed barn conversions, set in an attractive courtyard in a picturesque rural location, just 2 miles from the village of Bucknell. All four properties have been renovated to a very high standard, retaining a wealth of original features including oak beams and trusses, wall timbers and some exposed stone walls, all creating quality accommodation with a cosy and inviting atmosphere. Within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and with easy reach to the medieval town of Ludlow, National Trust properties and castles, Ironbridge, Much Wenlock, Shrewsbury, Hereford and much more. This is a wonderful location for walking - Offa’s Dyke is less than 5 miles away, cycling, birdwatching and touring the wonderful countryside of Shropshire and Mid Wales.

The property

The Granary is one of four 18th century, Grade II restored cottages in the Bryncalled Barns accommodation, located near to Bucknell, Shropshire.

A walk through the stylish dark wooden-framed doors greets you with a delightful, homely open plan living area.

The large, comfortable sofa along with the rustic stoned walls give this converted barn its traditional, warming feel.

Moving on upstairs, the wooden beams and dark red floral wallpaper continue the quaint feel that the exterior begins.

Both bedrooms and the large bathroom are incredibly modern and stylish, creating a wonderful combination with the cottage's rustic character.

The balcony sweeping across the front of the building allows visitors from both bedrooms to walk out and admire the view.

The beautifully-slabbed, exotic rear garden joins a vibrant decking area, with furniture and an abundance of colourful, lively plants to create the perfect scene for the family to sit out and relax with a cool drink on a nice, warm evening whilst the children enjoy the play area near by shared with the other cottages.

An outstanding cottage in an astonishing part of the Shropshire countryside, suitable for a holiday all year round.

About the location

BUCKNELL

Knighton 5 miles; Clun 6 miles; Ludlow 13 miles.

The pretty village of Bucknell nestles in the beautiful valley of the River Teme in South Shropshire, close to the borders of Wales and Herefordshire. This is a lovely area of peaceful unspoilt countryside, but still offering much interest for the visitor - the historic market town of Ludlow renowned for its superb restaurants, Ironbridge with its famous museums, and the county town of Shrewsbury are all within easy driving distance. The Heart of Wales Railway has a station in the village and to the south are the black and white villages of North Herefordshire with their cider orchards. Bucknell offers two pubs, both serving food, whilst the nearby market towns of Craven Arms and Knighton offer a full range of amenities.
