"We had a wonderful time and were made to feel very welcome."
A great place to stay, very spacious and comfortable.
"Wonderful accommodation in a great setting."
The owners were friendly and helpful. We had a lovely family holiday. Thank you Jane and Andrew.
"A beautiful part of the world, the owners Jane and Andrew made our stay a most enjoyable one."
The converted barn was lovely and spacious in an idyllic setting.
a 10 minute drive to Ellesmere and close to North Wales made this a perfect location for us.
"We had such an amazing holiday!"
Beautiful location with stunning sunsets in the evening. Lovely house with everything we needed. The owners were so lovely and kind, leaving us Prosecco in the fridge and fresh cake for our arrival! Would definitely recommend to anyone!
Really enjoyed our short break.
"The Oaks is an excellent venue for a three generation family holiday."
We appreciated the spacious accommodation both inside and outside the property and there is plenty of space for children to play. The home made cakes on arrival were a real treat. The Oaks has a wonderful rural location with spectacular views and was the perfect base to explore the area.
"Wonderfully welcoming hosts and breathtakingly beautiful views."
A fantastic base for our holiday. We will definitely be staying again.
"Great views, great hosts, great location."
Even a pandemic didn't spoilt this for us. Thank you for letting another 4 walls feel so attractive!
"Place was lovely and clean upon our arrival."
Views a stunning and place is well equipped with outside furniture and cooking utensils.
Only one fridge so if there are 10 of you might be squished for space!
Owners were lovely and extremely helpful, would definitely recommend!
"The Oaks was a lovely place to have a family gathering ."
The open plan ground floor was ideal and spacious . The view was stunning . Fishing in the ponds was a lovely relaxing extra along with ducks and sheep .
"We loved the Oaks."
There were 10 of us (including our four grandchildren) and we found the property was really clean and spacious. With a bathroom to each bedroom we were spoilt. The views over the fields were amazing and we watched the owners harvesting the crop which was interesting and saw a rabbit and a fox running across the fields. The grandchildren really enjoyed the daily visits from the mother duck and her five ducklings. Ellesmere is such a pretty town and the wider area offers plenty of attractions for all the different interests our family has.
"This is up a narrow country lane, with no traffic."
Comfortable and spacious inside, there are tracks and grassy spaces for children to run and play on their bikes. Very good views across open countryside and very quiet. We were 6 adults and 4 children. Sleeping arrangements were good, but someone needs to share with kids when you are 10 people, no problem for us. Shropshire is beautiful - We enjoyed Ellesmere, Shrewsbury and can highly recommend Hawkstone Park Follies for a kid's adventure day out. None of these cottages are completely perfect, there was a rather noisy water pump under the stairs, but it didn't spoil a great holiday. And we caught a couple of fish!
"Our party of 10 included our 4 grandchildren aged 12, 10, 7 and 6."
It was brilliant for them to be able to have the space and freedom to run around outside but within sight of the property. Wildlife is abundant in the area and it became a daily thing to have a hare (which none of them had seen before) scampering past the window. Wild mallard were also daily visitors to the garden. We were delighted to find a duck's nest in a flower trough with 16 eggs in it. Needless to say the children wanted to stay until they hatched out. A lovely family holiday.
"The property was amazing and was the perfect location for our sewing retreat."
The large kitchen island was an ideal work space to cut and measure patterns! The basics of tea, coffee and milk were provided and Jane went the extra mile with homemade cakes on our arrival. She even helped us set up the large dining table extension once she found out we were there to sew! There was there plenty of space for the 5 of us, amazing natural light, beautiful views and it was spotlessly clean.
Just note that the pin on the map is wrong. It is the 2nd turn on the left after the Leaking Tap pub, further (0.7 miles ) down the lane.
"Jane, our host, was fantastic!"
She was so helpful and even made us an array of cakes for our arrival which was so sweet of her! We had a few minor issues with the water but as soon as we told her she was straight over to sort it all out. We were staying for a wedding nearby. It was perfect accommodation.
"Well presented barn conversion with stunning views."
Spacious and perfect for our family break. We were surprised by how attractive the local area was.. Plenty to keep us entertained for a long weekend.
"Ideal place to meet up with friends/family and share a quiet weekend."
Owners were very friendly and helpful. The open plan downstairs is ideal as 8 of us could be in the same area in comfort without bumping into each other. Lots of bedrooms and bathrooms, so privacy not an issue.
"This holiday was a perfect fit for our family of 10, four children aged 3 to 7 and 6 adults."
The Oaks is set in beautiful peaceful safe open Shropshire countryside on a working farm perfect for children who need to vent their energy and excitement of being together with their cousins.
The house is great with a large open planned living area which has a wonderful open countryside aspect and a well furnished kitchen, ample large roomed en suite bedrooms and a family bathroom.
There are a few sheep and ducks to observe.
Access to many locations is so easy especially National Trust for example Attingham Park with a great play area, Powis Castle, Chirk Castle, also Llangollen with its railway and Aqueduct and canal. Ellesmere is just 5 miles down the road for shops and mere walks great to explore.
The lovely owners Jane and Andrew welcomed us as friends and were always available for advise and help if required.
We can fully recommend a relaxing holiday here in a gem of a place in undiscovered Shropshire.
"This is a beautiful barn, the owners were very welcoming and accommodating, the views are absolutely spectacular and we had the most incredible weekend."
We will most definitely be coming back here again, thankyou so much for having us - and for putting up with the noise :)
"A very spacious and comfortable barn conversion completed to a high standard."
The bedrooms are large and nicely furnished with good size ensuite bathrooms, a large family bathroom and a wet room down stairs. Jane left us tea, coffee, milk and a selection of homemade cake for our arrival, these were delicious and greatly appreciated. We stayed on the the greyest wettest days but in better weather the ponds and countryside would be lovely. The area isn't blessed with great internet as they are waiting on BT Openreach and perhaps another tv in the property would be nice but don't let that put you off, you can survive without fast internet and most tv isn't worth watching, enjoy the countryside isn't that why you are going.
