  • "A fabulous stay at the Tyre Barn, 5 star accommodation with a homely feel, with everything you needed to enjoy a home from home holiday."

    So quiet and peaceful, relaxing too, with beautiful countryside views and the canal a stones throw away for a good walk. Whixall Marina a 3min walk away. Not far to travel for days out with plenty to see and do. Fantastic pub close by, ‘The Horse & Jockey’ at Northwood, excellent food if you didn’t want to cook and very friendly locals. Would definitely return as their is still so much more to explore in Shropshire.

  • "A lovely and comfortable, well equipped property in a peaceful setting."

    The best Sykes cottage we have stayed in. Will definitely stay again. Some shade in the garden would be welcome as it gets the sun all day and can get extremely hot!!! Beautiful to sit out early morning with a cup of tea and evenings with a glass of wine. Idyllic holiday setting.

  • "Lovely barn conversion with everything you could need."

    The bike lock up was very useful for us as we had taken our bikes to cycle along the towpaths of the loch. Very close to the nature reserve and central for points of interest around the area.

  • "We have just returned from Tyre Barn."

    I highly recommend a stay at this high quality conversion, tastefully done and everything one would wish for from furnishings to a well equipped kitchen. The bedroom was a wow. The local pub was excellent but be very very hungry as one needs a good appetite. As far as personal service from Whixall office, there was excellent service for any help one requires. The area has some lovely places to visit Ellesmere Mere to the Boat museum at Ellesmere port and many more. Patricia

  • "Very enjoyable stay, very comfortable accommodation."

    The booking process was very simple and efficient and with good follow up emails. The outdoor space was very nice and private but would have benefited from some recliner chairs as it is a really sunny spot. The only slight downside is it’s isolation, the marina staff were all very pleasant and helpful, all in all a very enjoyable break.

  • "What an absolutely amazing place, luxurious, peaceful and has everything you need."

    So beautifully decorated and furnished, we loved it. The shower was amazing and a huge comfy bed. The coffee cake was delicious and a most welcome gift to arrive to. We could not fault Tyre Barn at all and would definitely recommend it. We were sad to go home!
