  • "Enjoyed our stay, plenty of space for two families."

    3 showers- 2 are accessed through downstairs twin rooms, not a problem for us as children up early! Space for all at dining table.

  • "Great property and great location."

    Our eldest child uses a wheelchair and the property was perfect for his needs. Loads for children and adults to do in the local area, but teenagers might prefer a more built-up location.

  • "We were a family group of 5 with one elderly person and one wheelchair user."

    The property was spacious enough and comfortable. The only important items missing for a disabled person are drop down rail for wetroom toilet and hand grip bars in shower area of wet room. As we knew in advance about this we took our own toilet frame. However our portable hand grips for shower wouldn’t affix to tiles, so this was the only problem we encountered. Good location for exploring this part of uk.

  • "Holiday accommodation was fine and well kept but but outside areas needed tidying and the gardens needed to be separated because of owners 4 dogs and cat which perhaps we should of been informed about in the information about the cottage."

    Also we could find no information pack in the cottage concerning appliances etc and re-cycling and we didn’t feel like we wanted to keep distributing the owner to ask about these things.

  • "Lovely property and surroundings."

    Accommodating host who dealt with any questions we may have had. All anybody could need whilst on holiday.

  • "We had a bit of a problem on arrival as the owner wasn’t expecting us and wasn’t available to take calls."

    Following a call to Sykes the owner was located and offered to buy us a meal in the pub opposite while the house was prepared for us. The rest of our stay was excellent and we had no further problems. The house is comfortable and well appointed and we all enjoyed our stay. Some information about recycling, working the central heating and leaving instruction would have been useful, but we muddled through without and major issues.

  • "We had a fabulous family Christmas at Maesbury Manor."

    The house is so spacious and homely, even more so than the photos. It was lovely and warm and festively decorated. As we did a lot of cooking, especially with it being Christmas, the property could benefit from a few more pots, pans and utensils, especially for the amount of people it sleeps, and also some instruction manuals and information would be useful. However, that didn't spoil our visit, we improvised! The big social kitchen / diner was great for family game time and the large comfortable living room was great for films. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend and return if in the area again.

  • "This was a fabulous property, and the owner was a very accommodating, ftiendly, lovely lady who understands the needs of individuals who require additional support and their carers."

    A great property for large group or even just a smaller family. Thoroughly recommended for all families especially those with specialist needs. Thank you.

The property

Knockin 1.9 miles.

Settled amidst the rolling countryside of Shropshire, a short distance from the charming market town of Oswestry, rests this black and white Tudor-style holiday home, Maesbury Manor.

Boasting a spacious and homely interior benefiting from two ground-floor bedrooms, specially-equipped with hoists and accessible en-suite wet rooms, Maesbury Manor makes an excellent choice for an escape to the country that the whole family can enjoy.

A sweeping in-and-out driveway greets you at the foot of this substantial holiday home, adjoined with the owner's home and enveloped by rural greenery.

Entering the property, the entrance hallway has been adapted to ensure ample space for those with limited mobility, and offers handy storage space to store your belongings away from the main living areas.

A day packed full of adventure calls for rest, so move through the property and into the sitting room, where you can kick back and unwind as your favourite show plays on the television.

When stomachs start to rumble, discover the well-equipped kitchen, beautifully-appointed with contemporary fixtures and housing all of the essential amenities to assist with a self-catered break.

Uncork a bottle of wine and gather together at the dining table to indulge in the fruits of your labour before making the most of your peaceful, countryside setting and carrying the conversation outdoors and into the late evening.

When sleep calls, you'll find the first of two bedrooms on the ground floor, each equipped with twin beds and benefiting from access to their very own en-suite wet room and a hoist to assist with accessibility.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor you'll discover a sumptuous super-king-size bedroom, a double and an additional twin, with a stylish shower room set across the way.

Take a break from doing the cooking and treat your loved ones to an indulgent meal at The Navigation Inn, set just moments away from your doorstep and serving a menu of homecooked fare prepared with ethical and local produce; it's picture-perfect, waterside setting offers a truly idyllic spot to dine out or enjoy an afternoon tipple.

For a change of scenery, you'll find the Bradford Arms, another traditional country pub, in nearby Knockin, along with a well-stocked convenience store, ideal for stocking up on goodies to enjoy from the comfort of your holiday home.

Jump in the car and travel the short distance to Oswestry, where you can explore its medieval castle, board a heritage steam-hauled train at the Cambrian Railway Museum, or tour the fascinating history of the local area at Oswestry Town Museum.

Peaceful afternoons can be spent amongst the greenery of the Mile End Golf Club, whilst those looking for a more exhilarating experience may prefer to visit the Forge Falconry Experience Centre.

There's plenty more to see and do nearby, with the bustling town of Shrewsbury and historic city of Chester within easy reach, along with the Shropshire Hills AONB for those looking to immerse themselves in the great outdoors.

Choose Maesbury Manor as the base for your next group celebration.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £600.

KNOCKIN

Oswestry 7 miles; Shrewsbury 15 miles.

The historic village of Knockin is conveniently located between the lovely town of Shrewsbury and the market town of Oswestry and is close to the England/Wales border. The village was once part of the Bradford Estate and is home to the 12th century St. Mary’s Church, the Bradford Arms pub, which serves good food, and the renowned village store amusingly called “The Knockin Shop”. The village is an ideal base for touring all of beautiful Shropshire and Mid Wales, including trips to medieval Ludlow, Church Stretton, known as “Little Switzerland”, delightful Lllangollen, with its white water rafting, and the wonderful Lake Vyrnwy and Bala Lake. There are excellent walking and cycling opportunities along the Montgomery Canal and Offa’s Dyke Pathway and both are close by. Visitors to the area can also enjoy Whittington, Powis and Chirk castles and the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge, with its ten museums. This is an ideal base for exploring the whole of Shropshire and deep into Wales.
