  • "Wonderful stay at a fantastic holiday cottage!"

    This was a fairly late booking for us; we wanted somewhere nice with a hot tub so were delighted to find somewhere as lovely looking this. We were even more pleased to find that it’s as good as it looks on arrival. The cottage is beautifully situated for a peaceful break with beautiful countryside views from the upper floor/hot tub (downstairs overlooks a small front garden, the owners very quiet drive and planting). It was spotlessly clean, well equipped (we cook ‘from scratch’ most evenings) and very comfortable. I’m quite fussy about hot tubs and I wasn’t entirely sure how privately located this one was as I wasn’t sure what the roof seen in the photo was the roof too. The roof shown is of the back of the holiday cottage. You can exit the main bedroom via the door seen on the photo with the outdoor steps and then straight up to the hot tub. The owner has thoughtfully provided two gowns (and flip flops!) so that you can get to the hot tub without any sense of feeling exposed. The hot tub itself was again sparkling clean with glorious views over the countryside. Unlike some other cottages I’ve stayed at, this owner allowed guest-control of the temperature setting, which allowed me to select a temperature to my liking. Jean, the property owner, was very friendly and welcoming. She lives in the property to the side of the cottage and was very keen that we let her know if we needed anything or had any problems. There was plenty to do in the area and (unusually for me) I would have been very happy to spend another week, or two, there. In short, we loved the cottage, had a fantastic break and that ‘second week’ is already on my to-do list!

    Brilliant location for exploring Shropshire and Wales, Ludlow, Church Stretton, Snowdonia National Park and Abberdovey plus the smaller villages near by. We got some great photographs of the beautiful hills. The Granary is a stunning barn conversion with amazing views from the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Shropshire hills. Multiple garden seating, and the hot tub is perfectly situated to enjoy the spectacular view. Everything you can possibly need has been thought of by the hosts, who are welcoming. We will definitely rebook, the Granary ticked all our expectations for a relaxing holiday in the Welsh Hills

    ....words cannot do this place justice. From the moment we arrived at this little piece of heaven everything was perfect. A fabulous welcome package from the owners with some delicious treats and sparkling wine. The property is beautiful....the decor is complimented by the masses of natural light you get from the ginormous windows. And the view from the windows is magnificent.....tranquil, serene, heavenly. The property is spotless. The furniture comfortable, with extra blankets dotted around to snuggle under at night. The bedrooms are a good size. The master bedroom is extremely spacious, with a beautiful ceiling to floor window overlooking rolling hills. The bathroom is well equipped with a shower and bath, and again, absolutely spotless. The utility room with washing machine and dish washer proved useful and the kitchen had everything you could need. My favourite part was the hot tub at the back of the property, overlooking the hills. I spent hours reading, relaxing and listening to nothing but birds singing. If you're looking for a relaxing getaway look no further. This property offers everything you could need. And the owners were more than helpful offering recommendations. The 2 of them, their beautiful granddaughter and their dogs made our stay even more special. We can't wait to come back.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. It was a pleasure to host you. So happy you had a great holiday. It would be a pleasure to see you again. Thank you x Property Owner

    The owner was so friendly and accommodating and the house has all the necessities you need, even condiments, oil etc. and she had left wine, mince pies and milk for us. The owner was very thoughtful and lovely but also left us to ourselves to enjoy the place in private. We really appreciated that they had put safety gates, high chair and cot up for the baby and the place was wonderful for our four year old daughter and nine month old baby. The cottage is full of character, spacious and has so many lovely touches. It's in a wonderful location with many walks and things to do in the surrounding area and then to come home and relax in the hot tub is bliss. It's worth noting that the hot tub is not for children under 12 but it did say that in the description. Don't hesitate to book, you will not be disappointed.

It's so comfortable clean quiet and conveniently placed as a base for visiting the beautiful countryside. As National Trust members there are many properties and sites within easy reach Croft Castle, Berrington Hall, Attingham Park, Powis Castle and Carding mill valley to name our favourites. We frequently cross borders into Shropshire, Herefordshire, and Worcestershire and have even ventured up to the shopping outlet Cheshire Oaks and the historic city of Chester.

    There is plenty of space outside, both in the front and in the wooded secluded area behind the cottage where the hot tub is, to sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. We made good use of this, having walked up nearly every hill for miles around, but it was worth it to come back to the Granary and sit outside in the sunshine with 'nibbles' and a cold drink. Hyssington is a lovely quiet peaceful village, but easy to get to, not miles up country lanes. There are excellent walks right from the doorstep, - Roundton Hill and Corndon Hill, and The Stiperstones and Long Mynd are only a short drive away. A little further afield are Stokesay, Powis and Montgomery Castles. An added bonus for such a country area is the supermarket in Church Stoke if supplies run out. Jean and Martin were really friendly and welcoming - the perfect hosts. I would definitely recommend The Granary for a holiday.

    Charming, helpful hosts and a delightfully well appointed house in a great location. Idéal base to explore the unspoilt but stunning area of the Welsh Marches and Shropshire.

  • "We found the property spotlessly clean & comfortable."

    The owner we found to be very friendly and nothing was too much .trouble. The week went to fast to really appreciate the surrounding area. Our only "niggle" was that because we don't use a "sat-nav" the last few instruction to locate the property were a little confusing ! Although a call to Jean soon rectified this. We would definitely re-book .

  • "The barn conversion was delighful and we had a really warm welcome from the owner and some lovely treats to eat and drink!"

    Just what we needed after a long drive. The cottage is beautifully and thoughtfully equipped, possibly the best equipped we have ever stayed in. There is a 'secret' garden at the back of the property which is so relaxing to sit in. We loved the surrounding countryside and the peace an solitude when we got back to The Granary. We are hoping to rebook soon.

  • "Where do I start?"

    Firstly the accommodation was absolutely fantastic, it was so homely and spacious, Everything was provided from the toilet rolls to wine in the fridge. We were so impressed with everything and the fact that every conceivable thing had been thought of and provided. The owners that live just next door were so friendly and helpful, not forgetting their two lovely dogs that loved playing with our little dog. If you like plenty of walks along with the stunning views of the countryside then this is the place to stay, also you are never too far away to take in the culinary delights at the Bishop's Castle Hotel. A message to anyone looking at booking this holiday accommodation, you will definitely not be disappointed. Enjoy like we did! and Thank you very much. Doug & Jo

  • "The Granary was like a real home from home - Jean was a lovely host and we were greeted with fresh scones jam and cream - fresh milk and a couple of bottles of wine and this is the first time we have had such a welcome there was even Easter treats for our son."

    Our pet was made extremely welcome also. Every convenience was there at our finger tips the hosts had thought of everything we may need. They were also on hand if we needed anything we had forgot (to be fair everything we could have wanted was catered for in the venue) The area was lovely nice quiet and so relaxing with wonderful views around - the perfect place to chill out

    We were able to take advantage of some local advice - everything from the best dog-walks to where to go for dinner. It was a relatively short break, but just what the doctor ordered.
