  • "An excellent isolated barn, perfectly suited for our needs, plenty of walks on the doorstep for the dog, plus large enclosed grass area attached to the barn."

    Well equipped and plenty of space, wifi handy as mobile signal poor. Would recommend this barn for anyone who likes being away from the crowd to just enjoy the surrounding area

  • "Fantastic quiet property in an amazing setting in the middle of nowhere."

    There is a long man-made track to and from the accommodation but driving carefully in a low-slung coupe was fine. This was our second stay at Tree House Barn and it won't be our last. It's a great location for walking in the Shropshire Hills or visiting Shrewsbury (5 miles) or Ludlow (25 miles). It's perfect for mutts too. My only slight reservation would be that if there are 4 of you, you need to be quite comfortable with an open toilet/shower in the bedroom! As a couple it was the perfect setup as we slept in one bedroom and used the other at the other end of the building as the bathroom. Wi-fi reception was fine (mobile phone less so).

  • "Lovely, warm cottage."

    Well equipped and good quality fittings. Karen is an excellent property manager. Delightful short walks around the lakes and gardens of Pitchford Hall - even though the many “Private” signs may make you feel a little unwelcome. However, if you are looking for long walks from the door you may be disappointed as some of the estate paths lead to nowhere/locked gates and we even found the public footpaths through the estate were not always passable due to farm crops, despite this being contrary to the farmers obligations. For this reason, all walks from the door must be taken via the Cantlop to Pitchford road, which feels a little unsafe to walk on. So in summary wonderful cottage for most people, if you are happy to use the car for everything other than the occasional short stroll.

    Unfortunately the garden is not dog proof, the railings are too far apart, especially as our dogs are small, can get through, needs chicken netting, toilets, needs doors, can be embarrassing, track to the property very rough, key holder needs explicit instructions, otherwise the property is very good, Christine,

  • "This was the second year we have been to Tree House Barn and had an absolutely fabulous time."

    The cottage is just perfect for us and three dogs. The beds are comfortable and it was so warm and cosy, everything was there which we needed. The welcome tea/coffee etc. was a kind thought. Others have commented that the road to the cottage was not good but if taken carefully and slowly it causes no problems. Tree House Barn is in a lovely peaceful location away from everything and it was great to unwind in such lovely surroundings. We will be back.

  • "Hols review : The Tree House Barn is such delightful place to visit for a peaceful and calm holiday."

    The actual barn is well equipped, HOWEVER the major downfall is the beds. ALL THE BEDS ARE JUST AWFUL. The main double bed is so hard. No way could we sleep on that. The two single beds we pushed together. One was ok but the other the springs have gone making it so uncomfortable. Such a shame as the rest of the property is so lovely. PLEASE can the owners look into the sleeping arrangements as seriously a whole week of not much sleep isn’t great option for a holiday break.

    Thank you for your feedback which is very valuable to us, following on from your review all mattresses have now been replaced, this is reflective in recent feedback whereby guests have advised beds were comfortable. Property Owner

    Spacious and warm in winter, with no near neighbours on a large agricultural estate. A peaceful and relaxing visit.

    It’s secluded and peaceful here and we’ve all enjoyed our stay, including our 2 dogs and 9/10 year old daughters. Shrewsbury is only a short drive away, and is beautiful, with so much to look at we need to come back.

  • "We spent a lovely Christmas at Tree House Barn, and would go back in an instant!"

    The barn was warm, comfortable and very well equipped. The Wi-Fi was not happening, but that wasn’t an issue for us, and the lack of telephone signal (unless you opened the door and we’re lucky) wasn’t an issue for us either! The internet was resolved on the day we left, so future guests need not worry! The kitchen was a pleasure to be in (so my friend said!), and the beds were so comfy!! The dog had a big garden to wander round, and that was enough for him! The route to the barn led down a very wet and muddy lane, with lots of holes! The only downside to the entire holiday was the car looked like a farm vehicle by the end!! Would recommend the barn to anyone, and the gifts of a bottle of bubbly and some delicious biscuits was the icing on the cake!

    ... very much not required!!!! The underfloor heating is fab (the dogs loved it too!!). Beautiful cottage, excellent facilities in lovely surroundings. Very happy to recommend and it we're back in this neck of the woods I would have no hesitation in booking again

  • "Broken double glazed bedroom window is reducing the effectiveness of approach to energy conservation."

    Although there were outside lights positioned overlooking the garden area they appeared not to work making it very difficult to determine whether or not it was necessary to clear up after the dogs when let out after dark! Rather more remote than expected but this added to a lovely peaceful escape.

  • "We had a wonderful relaxing break in Tree House Barn."

    We went with two children (2 & 6) who both really enjoyed walking around the estate and exploring! We enjoyed the barns spacious rooms and the large bathtub which we had nice bath bombs in several times in the week. The barn is located down a slightly bumpy farm track which is a little more hairy in wet weather but we didn't mind at all as it was so nice to be remote. The field out the front was excellent for throwing a new boomarang and hiding in the grass!! A couple of bits of feedback - the dryer part of the washer dryer doesn't seems to work or is so fussy doesn't easily work. The mattress on one of the single beds really isn't comfortable at all and needs replacing and some of the chairs although look nice, are not very comfy to sit on. However this didn't impact our holiday as we had a great time and loved the property. Thanks to Karen and Phil who manage the property and we're happy to help.

  • "We spent a wonderfully peaceful week at Tree House Barn in July."

    The barn is located in quite a remote spot across fields, reached by a farm track, and all around is countryside, some amazingly rare wildlife and tranquility. Just the quiet calm we needed after months of intensive working from home. The converted barn was spacious and comfortable, and has a mix of classic older furnishings with modern facilities. The modern and well-equipped kitchen especially was a delight to work in with the open-plan design meaning no separation from other family members enjoying time on the sofa whilst preparing culinary delights. The outside space was great for our two medium/large dogs who enjoyed sunbathing on the south facing expanse whilst we were happy that the fencing kept them securely within the grounds of the property. We saw a horse or two and the same number of walkers pass by all week. It was just the place we needed to get away from town life. There are interesting places to visit from here and walks to be had either directly from the barn or in the local area that can be driven to. We'd love to return to chill out and relax again in a place we felt very comfortable with. Karen, the local property manager, was also very helpful. If you want to get away from it all - this is the place to escape to.

  • "A fantastic place to stay and we will definitely go back."

    It really is in the middle of nowhere and so peaceful. The only thing worthy of note is that you don't want to enter the estate via the Pitchford Church entrance unless you have a 4x4. We took a fairly low sling 'coupe' which made the last hundred yards of that way in impassable as it was round the edge of a field and we had to turn back. There is a better way in if you go 1/2 mile further up the road and take the long driveway next to a post-box on the left. Still a bit hairy but driving carefully passed without incident (after 1/4 mile, Tree House Barn is hidden down a small track on your left on a sharp right hand bend). Well worth it though!
