The property

Concealed on a peaceful country lane is this fabulously renovated detached country barn, with striking black timber cladding and views of the Shropshire hills, this dwelling is a fantastic base for a large group to enjoy a relaxing weekend away.

Make your way inside, feeling the warmth of the luxurious underfloor heating, and greeted by a large activity room next to a handy utility where you'll find a washing machine, plenty of storage and a fridge.

The activity room boasts an abundance of floor space, a 55” picture frame TV with Sonos speaker, and table football as well as bean bag chairs.

The activity room doubles up as a tranquil yoga studio in the day time with the chance to book in professional classes with the owner.

The ground-floor is home to three bedrooms, two super-king-size and a twin, all decorated to a high hotel standard, with all super-king-size beds throughout the property able to be changed to a twin via zip/link if preferred on request.

Use the glorious walk-in shower room for a refreshing morning rinse, a sleek room with a toasty heated towel rail.

The rest of the bedrooms can be found on the first-floor, with three stunning super-king-size rooms and one lucky room benefiting from its own en-suite shower room whilst the rest of the bedrooms can utilise either a contemporary bathroom, or another shower room.

Spend the rest of your time in the magnificent open-plan living space, enter with awe as you take in this absolutely beautiful space, comprising of a kitchen, dining area and large sitting area with a wall mounted television complete with speakers in the roof if you can take your eyes off the stunning views through the floor to ceiling windows on the gable end!

The kitchen is decorated with funky bright fixtures, fitted with state-of-the-art amenities including an electric hob, oven, fridge/freezer, and a dishwasher.

After a delicious home-cooked meal has been prepared, set the grand dining table, a large social timber surface where you and all your guests can spend an evening catching up over incredible food.

Rainy Sunday afternoons can be enjoyed in the sitting area, an airy space with large window views out to the surrounding farm and countryside fields, snuggle up on the large corner sofa, deciding on a film for the evening whilst the woodburning stove creates a welcoming ambiance.

Also included within the barn is your own private outdoor seating area, a large patio filled with plush chairs, and a barbecue for alfresco meals and drinks in the summer.

With views of far-reaching fields and winding country lanes, this property couldn't be in a more idyllic spot, Church Pulverbatch boasts a gorgeous country pub when you fancy an evening meal out, with an abundance of walking, cycling and horse riding trails around the surrounding rural areas.

Try the White Horse Inn in Pulverbatch which is within walking distance through beautiful picturesque lanes.

Visit the charming town of Church Stretton, a lovely spot for outdoor activities, enjoy a game of golf at the local club, try your luck at archery, or sample a few of the delicious eateries before hopping on a direct train to Shropshire.

You're in easy access to a whole host of Shropshire attractions such as Severn Valley Steam Railway, Stokesay Castle, Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, Shrewsbury Castle, or one of the 10 museums of Ironbridge Gorge.

Discover the pretty market town of Shrewsbury, a bustling destination where you can stroll along the relaxing River Severn, spend a day at Attingham Park, or treat yourself to some retail therapy at one of the many high street shops.

Ramblers will delight in the opportunity to roam around the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasting breathtaking landscapes, scenic walking routes, cycling trails, birdwatching opportunities and so much more, as well as the chance to meander over to the historic town of Ludlow.
