  • "Great property with plenty of space for all of us."

    Garden larger than average and as fully enclosed dogs loved it. Views and location peaceful and stunning. Sunsets and sunrises were amazing. The owner couldn’t have been more welcoming or helpful.

  • "We have just spent a really wonderful week at Hope Hall Barn."

    We absolutely loved it. The barn is lovely, clean, extremely well equipped and very comfortable and Anna and her son Sam were lovely, helpful but not intrusive at all. There is a log burner and lots of logs supplied but it was a very hot week and we didn't need them. The barn is very quiet and rural which we loved. It is only a ten minute walk down the lane from a fabulous pub called The Stables which has a secure beer garden if you have children or dogs. The food was absolutely delicious and would highly recommend it. The barn has a brilliant, very large and fully secure garden which our dog made the most of, it was fantastic. We will definitely be back! Thank you

    Hope Barn offers everything we could think of and Anna, the host, couldn’t be more helpful, we were certainly made to feel most welcome.

  • "Lovely barn, basic but pretty."

    The garden is beautiful and perfect for dogs and safe for children. The barn is also pretty. We struggled without clothes drying facilities as in a tumble dryer with a family of four. The double bed we found uncomfortable but the two single beds in the other room were lovely. We regularly stay in cottages and barns across England and Wales and think that a gesture of milk and bread is often much appreciated especially when accommodation is so far from local shops. The host Anna was lovely and helpful, there if you need advice. The area is lovely for walkers, for the children and more active days out such as theme parks and similar we often went back to Wales and enjoyed a day out in Bewilderwood in Chester as well. The local Ludlow Castle was lovely and Shrewsbury Town is pretty. There are lovely walks on the grounds of the barn. There is a pub within a 10 mins walk from the barn, it wasn't for us so we often went to the Nags Head in Pontesbury, food was lovely and drinks lovely. Lovely stay but with a few changes recommended as above.

  • "Such a lovely cottage."

    Spacious and clean with all the facilities you need and super cosy. Beds were extremely comfortable! Huge garden which is enclosed and perfect for our dog who could run about without us having to worry where he was. The location is perfect, hidden away with fantastic views of the countryside, but also only 10 mins drive from the local shops and some really nice pubs that serve great food. Anna was a lovely host and welcomed us when we arrived, was there when we needed anything, but also left us to our own devices. Perfect for adults, kids and dogs. We will absolutely return again.

    We were met with chocolate brownies which went down well with the kids, milk and eggs, thank you! The cottage catered very well for our two dogs (Pepsi & Bree), the boot room was a must with the occasional shower we experienced most of the week. But putting the weather aside we enjoyed the walks around the cottage, some ending up at the local pub! Anna made us feel very welcome and whilst she went on a well deserved holiday the in-laws ade sure we were okay at all times. The cottage had everything we needed, the card table got a lot of use each evening. An enclosed garden for the dogs was a delight. We’ve always struggled to have a fully enclosed garden and we’re relieved this wasn’t something we had to watch out for for the full week. The log burner was also great a couple of cold evenings. All in all, we would recommend this cottage to anyone, it was a great relaxing week. Thank you

    It is within half an hour of Shrewsbury which is great if you want to do a bit of shopping but also there are villages all around if you just want to have a few nice walks and stop off at the village tea room. The barn is so homely with everything that you need to make your stay comfortable and we settled in within the first day. There is a lovely pub just down the road which offers great food if you don't want to drive out to eat which is great if you have had a long day out.
