  • “From start to finish it was more than we could have expected!”

    The cottage was so sweet and rustic, felt very homely! The cats were so friendly and felt like they were greeting us every morning. The setting was spectacular. So quiet and peaceful. The hot tub was the icing on the cake for us, relaxed us and made it easy to have a fantastic time. The owners were incredibly helpful and made us feel welcome. I cannot recommend the property enough!

The property

A stone-built detached barn conversion with a hot tub, situated close to the owners' home in 2 acres of grounds, 5 minutes' walk from a real ale pub and the centre of the historic town of Bishop's Castle.

This lovely property offers the perfect combination of original character and contemporary fixtures and fittings; there is a lovely kitchen with walnut units, a welcoming dining hall and living room, an all body jet shower and a luxury four poster bed.

The large patio area is ideal for dining alfresco after you've relaxed in the covered hot tub, which is romantically lit up at night.

This delightful property is in a wonderful location with Offa's Dyke, The Shropshire Way, the South Shropshire Hills, Ludlow, Shrewsbury, Stokesay Castle and Ironbridge Gorge all within easy reach.

A superb holiday location, with the hot tub an added bonus!
