  • "The barn is in a beautiful setting and the barn itself very spacious ideal for dogs."

    The fenced back was ideal for letting your dogs out at night and the paddocks great for the day plenty of enrichment for the dogs. The road down to the barn was a bit like an extreme sport as much of it needs repair and is single track but barely any traffic so not a problem.

  • "We had a really lovely stay at Owlbury Hall Barn."

    The barn is stunning; very spacious, immaculate and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The surroundings are beautiful with plenty of space for our young children and fur babies to run and explore, with the added bonus of a pool table, ping pong table and a hot tub. The owners are really lovely and approachable and made us feel very welcome. The local area is lovely with plenty of walks and we would highly recommend a trip to Powis castle. We will definitely be returning to Owlbury Hall Barn, thank you all so much.

    Thank you for such lovely feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and very much hope you do come and stay with us again. Property Owner

  • "Amazing week."

    . cottage delightful.. so much to do and see in the surrounding area. Beautiful little villages.. so enjoyed having lunch at Ragleigh inn (little statton) And coffee at many quaint village tea rooms. Walked the Montgomery canal lots of geocaching along the way. The national trust at little stratton walk was stunning with a lovely waterfall at the end. And the walk up to roundton hill, Montgomeryshire.. (this was volcanic many many years ago) views were incredible.. saw the red kites all around us. They are such elegant birds. All in all. Great holiday. Loved every minute oh and the jacuzzi was a perfect end to a perfect day. And our dogs had an amazing time too. Thank you James & Elise. X

  • "We had a fantastic few days over half term staying at Owlbury Hall Barn (family of 4 with 2 x 15 year old boys)."

    The house is brilliant, so much space & the living room is great for relaxing in the evenings. The area is lovely with great walks on the doorstep & Bishops Castle is a nice small town with everything you need. Thank you to our hosts who could not have been more friendly or helpful. We’re looking forward to hopefully coming back again.

The property

Bishop's Castle 3.2 miles.

Situated just over the Wales/England border in Snead, Shropshire, lies Owlbury Hall Barn, a characterful detached, reverse-level barn conversion set on a 11-acre estate.

Family-friendly and pet-friendly, this lovely holiday home is delightfully rural and perfect for a walking or cycling holiday, with the Kerry Ridge visible from the property and a wealth of quaint towns and villages within easy reach.

Arriving, you will find plenty of off-road parking and extensive gardens you can spend warmer days enjoying, including two fenced paddocks so your canine companions can run free.

Inside, the ground-floor hosts the bedrooms and bathrooms, making it easy to unload your bags or jump straight into bed to rest after a busy day of walking.

Upstairs, gather with your loved ones for dinner; choose from a quick bite in the kitchen/diner which has been fitted with everything you could need for a self-catering stay, or the larger dining area in the living/dining room.

After eating, curl up in front of the fire while you watch a film on the Smart TV, or you could relax, unwind and reflect on your day in the hot tub.

When you can tear yourself away, explore the nearby Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or the popular Stiperstones village.

If you want to treat your loved ones to a meal out, the nearby Bishop's Castle has a choice of pubs and eateries to choose from.

Next stop is Montgomery, home to ruins of an 1100s castle and a handful of niche museums.

Further afield, shopping can be found in Ludlow, known for its medieval castle and fresh food market, where you can stock up on delicious produce to cook up a storm with at Owlbury Hall Barn.

No matter the season, Owlbury Hall Barn is a fabulous choice for a memorable holiday in a picture-perfect area.
