  • "Beautifully styled, so clean and comfy."

    Wonderfully peaceful, with wildlife in abundance, with about a dozen or so red kites seen a few mornings. The owners were very friendly and accommodating without being intrusive. We will definitely be going back to Lindens barn. A wonderful base for just over an hours run to the coast, the Wye valley, close to Shrewsbury, Welshpool and Ludlow. Lots of places of interest, or just kick off your shoes and sit about reading, doing embroidery playing cards or feeding the horses. Bliss. Thank you Jo & Ray.

  • "This is a beautiful property designed and furnished to a high specification."

    It is light, airy and there is plenty of room inside and outside. The views from the property are amazing and ever changing. The area is a walkers' paradise with many trails nearby. There are also interesting towns, castles and other attractions within easy reach. It would be helpful if there was a soft-headed broom for use in the property so that guests can clear-up after themselves. It would also be helpful if wifi could be made available so that it can be accessed from within the property. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly. I thoroughly recommend this property.

The property

Tucked away on the outskirts of Minsterley in Shropshire, is this lovely, two-bedroom detached barn conversion, Linden Barn.

Enjoying a fantastic location on the grounds of the owner’s home, with views of the paddock and resident horses, as well as exceptional views of the Shropshire Hills AONB which backs the property, Linden Barn is a fabulous dwelling for couples or a family of four seeking a getaway to the countryside.

Step into the contemporary kitchen/diner, where you can look forward to whipping up mouth-watering meals, ready to savour at the dining table for four over a bottle of wine or alfresco out on your very own private patio, where you can truly experience dinner with a view!

After dinner, retire to the sitting room, where you can kick-back and relax on the plush seating whilst selecting a film from the TV as the evening’s entertainment.

After a day of hiking through the Shropshire Hills AONB, soothe your muscles with a soak in the bath or wash away the day with a refreshing shower; there is also a heated towel rail to keep your towel warm.

As your eyes grow heavy, retreat to one of two beautifully decorated double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room and both offering plenty of storage.

Take a stroll through the well-kept grounds of the owner's home, where you'll be greeted by a number of friendly ponies who are eager to meet you!

In Minsterley, head to the Crown and Sceptre Inn for a refreshing pint and a delicious pub lunch, and if the timing is right, you might catch an event being held at Minsterley Parish Hall.

In the nearby Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, hikers and cyclists can explore the varied landscape, stopping in at numerous quaint villages along the way to explore meadows, hills, and woodland.

Be sure to make a stop at Snailbeach where you will find the Snailbeach Lead Mine and Stiperstones offering wildlife rich walks through its popular nature reserve.

Find yourself in Shrewsbury, where you can admire the 11th-century Shrewsbury Castle's imposing sandstone architecture or take a guided tour of the historic Shrewsbury Prison's cells.

Other attractions within the city include the remarkable Shrewsbury Cathedral, Shrewsbury Abbey, cruises along the River Severn and the vibrant Dingle and The Quarry, where you can picnic along the river or join the National Cycle Route 81.

Adventure awaits at Linden Barn.
