This detached barn conversion is situated on the owners’ smallholding on the outskirts of Llanyblodwel, in Shropshire.
A Grade II listed property that has been lovingly renovated to create a welcoming, character cottage, decorated and furnished in a classic country style.

The kitchen is well equipped and thoughtfully laid out with a lantern-style roof light and a large social dining area for guests to eat and relax in comfort.
There are five well-appointed bedrooms, including a ground floor twin offering en-suite shower facilities in a wet room, which also benefits from wide doors and grab rails and may therefore suit the less mobile.
