    “Just what we needed, loved this place!”

    What a lovely place this is! A fantastic cottage, beautiful views, so much to do you don't need to leave. We could relax in the garden or at the fishing pond, while the kids had a great time on the tree swings, well we had a go too! We really enjoyed the tennis court too and exploring the woods and the tree house. If you love a bit of wildlife you'll love it here. ...

    What a lovely place this is! A fantastic cottage, beautiful views, so much to do you don't need to leave. We could relax in the garden or at the fishing pond, while the kids had a great time on the tree swings, well we had a go too! We really enjoyed the tennis court too and exploring the woods and the tree house. If you love a bit of wildlife you'll love it here. Peter and Helen were so friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The night sky was amazing, which is such a bonus when you live where there is a lot of light pollution. Shrewsbury was also a very pretty and interesting place to visit, with a lovely boat ride along the river with an icecream. Let's just say we didn't want to go home and can't wait to go back, thank you so much.

Great Lyth Farm Cottages

A wonderful opportunity to enjoy two delightful 18th century Grade II listed barn conversions, which have been sympathetically developed to offer well equipped accommodation in an idyllic rural location, 5 miles from medieval Shrewsbury. They stand close to the owner's farmhouse, surrounded by lovely grounds, within a 22 acre smallholding which is home to sheep, chickens and an extensive organic kitchen garden from which eggs and seasonal vegetables are available. Both cottages have a pretty, fenced garden; perfect for dining alfresco. Guests have use of a year-round hard tennis court and coarse fishing (including carp) on the picturesque and well-stocked 1 acre pond, only 100 yards away. Enjoy walking and cycling in the stunning Shropshire Hills, or discover the Ironbridge World Heritage Site, Stokesay Castle and Acton Scott Historic Farm. Booked together, Ref 2601 and 2602 can accommodate 11 people.
