The property

Fulford 1 mile.

Hollys Barn is a luxury, historical barn conversion situated between the beautiful Staffordshire villages of Hilderstone and Fulford, perfect for those who love to spend time outdoors, and conveniently within reach of popular towns like Stone and Stafford.

Relax within the beautiful decor of the open-plan living space on your return from an adventure-filled day out, settling onto the large corner sofa, in dark, soft grey complementing the rest of the light grey interior.

Move over to the kitchen area when you're feeling peckish and whip up something to eat, making use of the electric oven and neat two-ring hob or the microwave.

Dine alfresco using the bistro table and chairs on the patio, relishing a balmy summer evening, paired beautifully with a chilled glass of wine.

Walk the dog on the many scenic footpaths available and delight in the colourful skies offering a dreamy backdrop to the luscious country scenes.

Head to the attractive double bedroom, with duel aspect windows as well as a skylight, so you can wake up to blue skies all around after pulling back the blinds.

Feel refreshed after a long soak in the luxury roll-top bath, which also has a hand-held shower, set against the stylish, white subway tiling.

Seek out the two local pubs within a ten-minute walk of Hollys Barn (wellies may be required!), both serving quality food, with one offering a unique dining experience in Pullman train carriages - ideal for when you want to take a night off from cooking duties.

Embark on the pub walk, beginning at the Shoulder of Mutton in Fulford, heading to the Black Lake Inn on the cross roads, before finding the Boar Inn at Moddershall, a traditional local pub and home to a large pond with a variety of ducks to feed, and finally come to the Moddershall Cricket Club to delight in a refreshing drink while watching some cricket, making a great afternoon outing on a sunny day!
