Shrewsbury 2.5 miles.
This outstanding retreat is set within 60 acres of the owner's estate grounds in a fantastic position overlooking the picturesque countryside of South Shropshire, on the outskirts of Shrewsbury and has been beautifully converted from an old hay barn split into two sections by an archway and provides luxury accommodation for friends or families.
Approached along a country drive, the grounds are accessed through secure electric gates and there is plenty of space to relax and wander in your own time with the small private vineyard and lawn providing a tranquil area.
Entering the larger side of the house you will find yourselves in the entrance hall and the first glimpse of the interior is just the beginning of the fabulous decor which can be found throughout.
On the ground floor is the luxurious open plan living area which has a superbly well-equipped kitchen with granite worktops and a large island and if you feel like having a night off or you're celebrating a special occasion, why not make use of the chef service?
The dining area is a fantastic place to enjoy meals and make plans and there are two sitting areas, one of which is set in front of a beautiful woodburner.
From here there are two staircases, one at either end, which each lead up to two beautifully-appointed bedrooms which have fabulous high ceilings with feature beams and a dividing wall to their en-suite facilities.
In the second half of the property with its own external access are the remaining three bedrooms.
There is a ground floor super king-size bedroom which has a comfortable sofa, freestanding bath and basin in the room and a separate WC and steam room.
Upstairs are the final two bedrooms which also have high ceilings and en-suite facilities.
All of the bedrooms offer spectacular views of the surrounding estate grounds and are ideal retreats at the end of the day.
You may find that you never leave this property as on-site there is a hot tub waiting to be enjoyed and you can also arrange for a variety of different treatments and services which will make your stay here truly memorable.
