The property

An attractive detached barn conversion, which is wheelchair accessible, situated next to the owners’ home on the outskirts of the village of Hinstock near Market Drayton.

Having been lovingly converted from the original farm building, the cottage now offers a comfortable base for an enjoyable holiday.

Complete with original beams, exposed stone walls and a warming woodburning stove, these character features are well complemented by modern conveniences such as underfloor heating throughout, as well as a modern fitted kitchen and a contemporary wet room.

For those seeking rural tranquillity, this cottage is ideal as the owner allows guests to access their land and you’ll be able to watch horses grazing in the surrounding fields.

Should you wish to bring your own horse, stabling is available and the owner provides 24/7 turnout.

A wealth of local attractions await, so why not visit the popular towns of Market Drayton, Shrewsbury or Ironbridge, or soak up some history at Stokesay Castle?

There are great opportunities for walking and cycling from the door, and some good off road hacking in the local countryside, not to mention some superb golf courses for those looking to get a leisurely 18 holes in whilst on holiday.
