"Absolute gem of a property!"
Walking distance to Church Stretton. Some great local pubs,we had fantastic food in the Yew Tree Inn (5 min walk) Kings Arms (30 min walk) and the Station (15 min drive) Property had everything we needed and the garden was great for our 2 dogs. Thanks for a great stay.
"Just the double mattress was uncomfortable."
Everything else was perfect. Nice quaint place. Thank you
"Beautiful location perfect for four legged friend."
Cosy cottage fully equipped with everything you need. Comfortable and clean. Hosts very approachable and helpful. Great outside space
"The barn was in a fantastic location."
Church stretton was a lovely town with good shops and pubs. We walked the long mynd via rattling hope and stopped at The bridges pub which was absolutely amazing. Next to a river and food was amazing. It’s a must to visit. We also had fantastic meals in the Ragleth and green dragon (both in little stretton). The hot tub back in the barn was absolutely a must after the walk and it was amazing and clean and very hot. The barn was great for me and my husband and dog. Everything you would need. Rachel was very helpful too. Definitely be back. Thanks again
"Had a lovely time at Old Barn 1."
Plenty of space for 2 adults, 1 teen, 1 child and a dog. Our dog managed to escaped out of the garden the first day but the owners placed an extra strut on the gate straight away to stop this (thank you!!!). Perfectly situated for walking and trips to Blists Hill, Shrewsbury and Ludlow.
"Lovely cottage, very clean and well stocked."
Garden was great and very secure for our two dogs
"Fabulous spot to kick back and relax."
Enclosed garden for the wuffers and a hot tub for us. Choice of different distance walks locally. A really good holiday unit
"Great cottage in lovely location and great base to stay in to explore surrounding area."
The only downside for us was the entrances. Whilst flat inside, there was a large step to get into the property and into to garden which my 84 year old mum really struggled with. Other than that, would definitely return here
"We had a fantastic weeks stay at the old barn 1 , booked to take our lovely dog but unfortunately she passed away before we went - it is an idea place with a dog or without - cottage was lovely and clean , hot tub ace , had everything we needed and very comfy to stay in - location idea and walked to Church Stretton where there was great places to eat and fab shops , lovely walks on your door step and idea location for visiting Shropshire ie - Ludlow , Telford , cosford air museum ."
Would highly recommend, thanks .
Great parking etc. But the single beds were awful, quilts in plastic unremovable bags. Maybe something you get in a nursing home but not in a holiday let. They are very noisy and make you drip with sweat because you're sleeping under a plastic bag. Unfortunately, they ensured very little sleep. We'd love to come back but this bedding really needs to be addressed. Thanks
"We enjoyed our stay very much."
The property was comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed. The location was good and we enjoyed eating at the local pub. On a very minor note it would have been useful to have a doormat to wipe our feet and maybe a bin in the bedroom.
"This is out 2nd visit but previously stayed in barn 3."
We will definitely be booking again. We love the barns and surrounding area. The owners are so lovely and nothing is too much trouble and they make you feel very welcome. The accommodation has everything you need plus items you never knew you would need but did. Very well stocked and home from home. Although barn 3 was bigger, barn 1 is great for the dog as it has an enclosed garden with amazing views. We loved our stay, very relaxing and would highly recommend Old Hall Barns.
"Absolutely loved our weekend away, the Barn had everything we could need."
We were also provided with a travel cot and a high chair which was a godsend considering the amount of stuff we already needed to bring for the baby. The hot tub was lovely, super relaxing! I did see a few comments saying the couch was uncomfortable but I disagree, I thought it was lovely. Would 100% recommend to anyone :)
"Lovely little holiday home."
Very private garden space with a lovely hot tub. Beds and sofa were comfortable. Kitchen was very well equipped. Shower was nice and powerful.
"We had an amazing weekend stay, the accommodation was lovely and warm, the beds really comfortable and the hot tub was the added bonus."
The owner was really helpful too. The bathroom could do with a little attention where the damp has damaged the walls but that’s my only criticism. Would definitely stay here again.
"Absolutely lovely lodge."
Very spacious and clean. Beautiful location. Really enjoyed hot tub.
"This was a fantastic holiday cottage you will not be disappointed if you book ..."
This was a fantastic holiday cottage you will not be disappointed if you book this Fantastic view and cottage was spotless and very roomy Thank you
"The property had everything that we needed, was clean and exactly as described."
The private garden and hot tub are fantastic. The property location couldn't be faulted either, with a lovely pub a 5 minute walk away and the town of Church Stretton in walking distance with a number of pubs and shops. Couldn't fault it and would recommend to anyone!
"A lovely place to stay."
The barn and hot tub was very clean, and the secure garden was great for the dogs.
"Arrived to find the property clean & tidy."
Beds, sofa very comfy. We had everything we needed. Pint of milk & bread in the fridge was much appreciated. Beautiful rural location. Very quiet. The requested high chair & travel cot were duly brought to us. My 6 year old grandson wanted a hot tub & he absolutely loved it. Lovely enclosed garden was ideal for my Springer Spaniel.
"Owners was helpful with a roller blind issue."
But the property wasn't so clean has last time also needs a few maintenance jobs to bring it up to 5 stars also furniture was uncomfortable but it was good holiday.
Thank you for your feedback. It is a shame that you did not mention any other issues when you contacted us about the blind, as we are always on hand to help. We pride ourselves on providing a spotless property for guests, and we have checked for any maintenance issues, but none were found. Property Owner
"Stunning location and friendly enough owner."
Accommodation suitable for two adults and young children. Have to say though the sofa is very uncomfortable to sit on and didn't want to sit on dining room chairs all night either. Disappointed that there was no dvd player, (we brought our own but couldn't play them!) No games or books at the property, which we regretted not bring our own. Hot tub was nice. Lacking in furniture in the main bedroom, it is a very small room but bedside tables with some drawers would be helpful. The most complicated of ovens to use and would have been good to be shown where the instructions were together with the limited property info details... we had to go routing for it. This all being said the location of the property is stunning and such lovely places to walk, just bring your own map as there aren't any at the property. Would recommend but some improvements for renters could be easily made to give it 5*
"Lovely cottage in a great location."
Very suitable for our dog as the garden was a good size.Sofa was uncomfortable but that is probably just a matter of taste.Pub five minutes walk away, dog friendly and food very good.Hot tub was great especially after a days walking.All in all would highly recommend this cottage.
"Spent a lovely week at Old Hall Barn 1."
Simple furnishings but plenty of space for a family of 4 (inc 2 teenagers). Kitchen well equipped and a lovely power shower. Hot tub was excellent. Large garden which was very secure for our very inquisitive cocker spaniel. The owner Richard was friendly but let you to get on with your holiday. The toaster packed in but Richard replaced it with a brand new one within 2 hours. Surrounding area is beautiful and ideal for walking. Did the short Rectory Walk and went to Carding Mill Valley Park - stunning landscape and walks suitable for all ages. Visited the nearby Yew Tree for drinks and food which was reasonable and welcoming. Just a couple of minor suggestions for the accommodation - a curtain/blind in the twin room's dressing area for privacy and some softer lighting (eg lamps) in the lounge area would have been appreciated. However we loved our stay and would definitely book again.
"Very nice property in a great location."
My son who is autistic had a wonderful time and we will be back again.
"Arrived on the Saturday , property lovely and clean , rooms lovely and clean ."
Back garden really nice especially for x2 greyhounds great balcony and hot tub . Lovely walks at nationally trust park, and lovely food at the kings arms pud massive portions dogs welcome , brilliant would definitely love to go back and stay at the barn beautiful. We had a lovely time thank you
"Great location property very nice views from the patio amazing"
"Excellent holiday cottage / barn."
Highly recommended and 100% Satisfaction..
"Excellent cottage with all the amenities."
Nice garden for kids and pets to run around in and it's well fenced off from the stream. Cottage is well maintained and in a lovely location. Would thoroughly recommend.
"Found it a bit too small for four people."
Sofa was uncomfortable, could do with more mugs, a blind in the dressing area and a decent curtain at the tall window in the twin bedroom would have been better. Also the bathroom window with clear not opaque glass offers no privacy meaning you have to always have the blind down. Felt a bit overlooked when in the hot tub by the row of houses across the field and there only seemed to be one powerful jet working in the tub. No storage in main bedroom- there were shelf type bedside stands, perhaps ones with drawers would be better to offer some storage? Beds were comfortable, shower always hot and powerful, good secure garden for dogs, cottage was clean, good location, not far from church stretton, Shrewsbury, Ludlow, much wenlock, attingham park, Ironbridge . Nice enough for a few days but felt quite basic and we didn’t feel we received the welcoming touch that we have from other cottages in the past- even a small bottle of milk in the fridge for a cup of tea on arrival goes a long way. Didn’t see the host the whole time we were there, only spoke via text before our arrival.
"Barn was very nice."
Could do with a little TLC and would of be better if the grass had been mowed due to having 2 dogs . Difficult to see where they had done their business. View from back was lovely and fab location. Easy walk to church Stretton and a very short drive. Great walks especially for the dogs but mine hate sheep so were on the lead most of the time. Overall a lovely stay
"Had a great stay, great accommodation and hot tub Would definitely recommend"
"Lovely property ,well equipped and furnished."
TV did not seem to pick up many channels, other than that, hard to find anything to complain about! Would definitely return
"The Barn was beautiful, clean, had everything you would need, very comfortable, very well equipped."
the Hotub was amazing, and the views were stunning, also easy to park your car and get around...loved it
"Very good location and Barn 1 was very comfortable."
"Lovely, comfortable cottage in beautiful surroundings, plenty to do in surrounding area."
Would highly recommend.
"Would have no hesitation in returning."
"We had a lovely stay."
The hot tub and maintenance were great! Lovely garden and a really nice pub round the corner. Perfect place for lots of lovely walks. Just a couple of minor recommendations, it'd be nice to have an information pack of the area and the sofa was very lumpy (not so great after a day hiking). But overall, highly recommended!
"We had an absolutely fantastic time at this wonderful cottage."
Lovely hosts, wonderful secure garden with hillside views that our two dogs loved, amazing hot tub, it had everything we needed. Close fabulous places such as Church Stretton, Ironbridge and Ludlow. Would definitely recommend and would definitely return. The best cottage we’ve stayed in so far, we really didn’t want to leave!
"Lovely holiday cottage in beautiful surroundings."
Ideally situated for local amenities and walking distance to the pub. Lovely secure garden for our dog.
"Beautiful well looked after cottage in a lovely country setting."
Hosts great always on hand if needed but not intrusive. Highly recommended me and my family loved it.
"We will certainly be booking this Barn again next year, loved it."
"The barn is located in an area of such natural beauty."
The barn was perfect, cosy and lots of natural sunshine. All the facilities you need, cooked most days but if you don't fancy cooking the Yew tree 400 yards away do delicious meals. The hit tub was fabulous and cleaned/maintained by the lovely owner Rich. We will definately return.
"Lovely cottage in a fantastic location."
Church Stretton is great! Lovely views and hot tub was great for relaxing at the end of the day. Would recommend.
"A beautiful barn in a brilliant location!"
The only downside was the TV was very temperamental, Netflix only working for 1 day of the week which was a shame in the evenings. Thank you for an overall lovely stay!
"Fantastic holiday destination, even in winter, cottage had everything we needed ( except a freezer) and Richard (the owner) was a great guy and very helpful, the cottage itself did not have a freezer and at Xmas time we really needed one, Richard went and got us one and put in the shed for us which was great, the cottage was very warm and cosy, definitely be going again."
"Beautiful cottage and beautiful views hot tub was amazing"
"Little welcome gift (bread, milk, etc) on arrival was a nice surprise."
Cottage was well equipped, very comfortable and in an excellent quiet location, but only a short walk to a pub and one mile from Church Stretton, a lovely little town. Owner Richard was very friendly and looked after the hot tub daily. Locals were really friendly and helpful. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.
"Lovely barn and setting."
Enclosed garden for our dog. Central for where we wanted to visit. Close to lovely village and dog friendly pubs. Owners of barn were very friendly and the milk and cake were a welcome extra. Well equipped except for hairdryer. Loved Much Wenlock and Ironbridge. In fact, we loved Shropshire. Would recommend this accommodation.
"On arrival to Old Hall Barn we had been left a lovely freshly made cake, thank you this was appreciated."
The barn was everything we had hoped for & the hot tub was absolutely wonderful after long walks every day. The local people were so happy to stop and talk with you, so friendly and welcoming also offering information of where to walk or visit. Church Stretton was a 5 minute drive with a Co-Op and lovely selection of shops. Parking was 50p an hour from 8am until 6pm. We tried the Fish & Chips on the corner which were delicious. The Kings Head Pub is lovely. Everyone was so friendly and welcomed our dog, lots of fuss was given to her as well as treats, which she loved. If you leave the barn and follow the sign directed to the local village hall, further up on your left, opposite the quarry you will see a gate and field which was lovely for walking our dog. If you carry on you will come to a National Trust sign and cattle bridge, you will discover a lovely scenic view, fresh streams and various ways to walk. (£2.00 per day) We also enjoyed going to Carding Mill, Ludlow & the castle also Shrewsbury, all lovely days out. We would definitely recommend this holiday and will be returning.
"Lovely cottage in a fantastic location."
Beautiful hill walks and then relaxing in the hot tub. We had a lovely holiday. Good fenced garden for the dog and young children. It would be good to have a bit more storage for you blacking clothes and the internet was very intermittent but these were only small problems. Beds and sofa very comfortable.
"We initially had a problem with Netflix but once the owner came (almost immediately!"
) and sorted it out and also replaced remote control batteries we were fine. We were very comfortable, great to have a hot tub and our dog Louie enjoyed the large garden. We even had the 'entertainment' of watching sheep shearing at the end of the lane.
"A lovely cottage in a beautiful location."
The hot tub was an added bonus and we used it every day of our stay. Lots of places to eat in Church Stretton only a 5 mins drive away. We would certainly recommend this cottage - it has everything you need.
"We had a fantastic week at Old Hall Barn 1 in June 2019."
Property was immaculate, as listed, we needed nothing more. Enclosed garden for dogs to run in and hot tub to boot. Whoop whoop. Perfect location for exploring and walking. We definitely book again. Thank you.
"This is a lovely cottage and we really enjoyed our stay there."
The bed was comfortable, the hot tub amazing, with a lovely table and chairs on the decking, the garden was great and safe for the dogs, and it is in a very convenient location for seeing the rest of South Shropshire. There are plenty of nice pubs for eating nearby. Richard is a really friendly and helpful owner, we learnt about the sheep in the adjacent fields and he was nice and chatty. The welcome cake was tasty. This is a 2 bedroom cottage that sleeps 4 but I personally would not want to have had 2 other adults there, it would have been a bit cramped. Being pedantic I would have liked - some where for our clothes in the main bedroom other than 4 hooks ( we used the lovely dressing area that is next to the second bedroom) - clearer instructions on how to use the TV - instructions on recycling in the guest folder as our bins outside didn't have any instructions and we were unsure what to recycle - wooden spoons in the kitchen drawer - extra pillows ( I borrowed one from the second bedroom as they were so flat) We had a great time and would recommend this cottage.
"Lovely cottage, very happy loved the hot tub, really appreciated Rachel giving ..."
Lovely cottage, very happy loved the hot tub, really appreciated Rachel giving us an extra hour to check out, as we had our baby and this was very helpful xxloved it
"First time in Shropshire but definitely won't be the last."
Lovely barn in a fantastic location for walking and cycling. Welcoming and knowledgeable hosts. Some great places to eat and have a drink in Church Stretton, which is only about a mile from the accommodation, so easily walkable for most if you want to leave the car behind of an evening and have a drink :). Mark & Sharon, May 2019.
"This was a great holiday cottage in a wonderful location."
Owners friendly and the hot tub was perfect. However, it could have benefitted from more storage. There was only one rail for clothes - wardrobes and chests of drawers would have been helpful. That said, we would definitely return to what is a comfortable and spacious cottage in a peaceful location.
"This is our third booking through Sykes and is our most disappointing so far."
Although the accommodation was mainly as described the finer detail was missing. No basics such as a welcome pack with a pint of milk or loaf or bread were provided. A cake was left which was nice, but the basics would be better until guests find the local shop! No instructions on using appliances and heating etc were available and a 'friendly hello' would have been nice just to ask if we had everything or needed help with anything. The cottage itself had a large 'dressing room' for clothes but a chest of drawers and a couple of bedside cabinets would be beneficial as there was no real storage. This accommodation could be better with a few minor changes by applying a bit of common sense. This at present does not deserve the 4* that Sykes had given it.
"Very nice peaceful location easy to access places of interest."
Host were very welcoming and helpful highly enjoyable stay Would recommend this place
"It did what it said on the tin."
We are fully refreshed, calm and relaxed. A beautiful cottage with beautiful surroundings. We would definitely recommend this cottage. Thank you.
"We had a great time very chilled location and I was in the hut tub every day , wonderful stay."
"The Holiday let was perfect for a family get away."
The information from Sykes and the owners was clear and we had no trouble finding the place and collecting the keys.
"Lovely peaceful cottage with plenty of walking routes on doorstep"
"We had a fab time, the location is great for exploring and there are some nice shops and pubs near by."
The cottage has everything you need and the welcome cake was a lovely touch. The owner was there within minutes when we had a small issue and it was resolved immediately. The only small thing I would say is maybe to list things you do and don’t provide eg toilet roll, cleaning products etc so people know what to bring with them. Hot tub was great, we used that a lot! Would stay again!
"The cottage was lovely, excellent attention to detail and a wonderful location."
"Lovely cottage just like the pictures, the hot tub was great!"
Had a welcome upon arrival and a cake! Kept nice and warm by the central heating. Walking on the doorstep and the quiet town church strettton very close for small shops and the odd pub. Also checked our Shrewsbury which was a nice city!
"The Hosts were very helpful and welcoming, they listened to us about any things we could recommend to make the accommodation better they were very knowledgeable about the local area,we have already recommended this cottage to members of our family."
We clean air B&B's for a living so was very pleased to find one as clean as we would leave the ones we clean.
"The cottage was far bigger than we thought it was going to be."
The welcome hamper was an unexpected treat. The views whilst soaking in the hot tub are not to be missed. Really liked the privacy of the hot tub as well. Lovely big enclosed garden for the dog. Really was an enjoyable stay.
