"Fantastic property with a lot of character and spectacular views."
The property owners were extremely helpful both prior to and during our stay. The farm shop was lovely - very convenient if you didn’t want to drive 20 mins for some milk! The only slight inconvenience was the lack of shower but we knew this before booking. All in all, The Tractor Shed was a beautiful stay. The owners provided everything we needed for our stay (and even popped a carton on milk in the fridge for us). Definitely recommend to those wanting a countryside escape. Thank you both!
"Beautiful property in a lovely location."
Really quirky and unique property with all the rustic features, it really looks just like it does in the advert photos. The property was clean and tidy and it was a beautiful property to relax in, especially in the evenings by the fire. Great location with the farm shop located round the corner, lots of nice countryside and delicious restaurants nearby. Highly recommend!
"Very disappointed, Dirty, unloved , would say it hasn’t had maintenance since the beginning 5yrs ago !"
. A list of everything in brief , Stove , no hearth fire tools .just a sawn off handle of a garden tool ! Dirty , cobwebs, with dust on top !!! Broken furniture, lamps , glass missing in dresser door , Bathroom extraction, Disgusting !,, , drawers and cupboards with no order or tidinesses, bath
So sorry you didn’t appreciate the tractor shed Robin. As you may have seen we won an award for Sykes quirkiest property and as you can see from our reviews most people who have visited appreciate and love it as much as we do . Perhaps a premier inn next time with all its boxed off commercially laundered neatness might be more your scene. Happy holidays !!! Ps I’ll have a word with the spiders who must have been extra productive that night as I know it was properly cleaned for your arrival. Property Owner
"Comfortable, characterful property."
We enjoyed the excellent farm shop too. A lovely stay thank you.
Thank you Tracy so Pleased you enjoyed your stay x Property Owner
"We had a amazing time."
. as it was a holiday that was much needed. The tractor shed is the sort of accommodation you instantly feel at home in. Unfortunately we had to leave a day early as storm Euinice was coming in the next day . Will be booking again soon..
"The Tractor Shed is located in a beautiful setting and the entire place has been finished to a very high standard."
It truly is a little slice of heaven - a perfect base to explore the beautiful Shropshire countryside, and many nearby attractions. The outside space is great and we enjoyed many evenings out there star gazing. We particularly loved the open plan living space, especially cuddling up with a hot chocolate in front of the roaring log burner in the evening. It was lovely to meet Fiona, she was super welcoming and full of great recommendations for places to eat out. We would highly recommend visiting The Swan at Marbury during your stay - their roast was delicious! An excellent start to 2022 - we will definitely be back to The Tractor Shed again soon. Don’t hesitate, book now - you won’t regret it.
Ah thanks Alice it was lovely to meet you both and I’m so delighted that you had such a nice time. Come and see us again soon x Property Owner
"We had a wonderful stay and absolutely loved the Tractor Shed it had everything we needed but unfortunately the heating broke down on New Years Eve."
The Owners did all they could ringing a plumber, stocking us up with wood for the log burner and putting in a fan heater in but it just took the shine off it slightly as chilly in places that were away from the burner like the bathroom and getting up in the mornings, but you can't magic a plumber at New Year !! We worked closely with the owners who were absolutely 100% fantastic and couldn't have done more for us with Prosecco, Chocolate and offer of a free night ( couldn't take sadly as back to work the next day) We had a lovely stay though and the sausages from the Farm shop were the best we have ever had and wished the shop had been open when we left to bring home more but it was a bank holiday. The whole area for visiting was great and highly recommend the Shrewsbury Prison tour and Shrewsbury itself and Attingham Park to see the deer and house and the Severn Valley Railway. We will return in the summer when we can appreciate the sun through the large windows and sitting outside having a drink and BBQ Very Highly Recommend
Thank you again for being lovely guests and so understanding about the heating situation. Come again soon x Property Owner
"A fantastic property with excellent hosts who could not have made us more welcome."
Thanks Laura for your lovely feedback x Property Owner
"We had the most wonderful stay at The Tractor Shed."
The property is stunning. The owners have added so many wonderful touches to the interior, with rustic yet beautiful light fittings, very comfy furniture and great quality essentials in the kitchen. We loved our relaxing evenings in front of the fire place, chilling on the sofas, and wonderfully peaceful mornings enjoying the views and delicious breakfast bits from the farm shop next door. Would absolutely recommend The Tractor Shed to our friends and family.
"Fiona and Rob both made us feel incredibly welcome from the moment we arrived."
The property was just what we needed for a break in the Shropshire area and was ideally located for a variety of activities and day trips. The property is stunning as you can see from the photos, but it's well equipped too and there wasn't one thing I felt I needed. Being able to put an order in with the farm shop prior to arrival was a great touch. It allowed us to not worry about dinner or breakfast for our first day and morning. Having fresh bread deliveries, ground coffee for the cafetiere, eggs and bacon (bacon from the farm!) really helped us relax into holiday mode on that first morning. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a great stay. Kris & Kim.
"A lovely unusual place to stay, this was our third visit so would definitely recommend."
"We loved the uniqueness of the Tractor Shed with it's amazing glass walls."
It was simply fabulous; beautifully furnished and full of quirky items. Very comfortable and well equipped. Rob and Fiona made us very welcome, as did the staff in the shop. It's in a part of Shropshire that we didn't know and we had a wonderful week exploring. We'd love to be able to pick the barn up and plop it down into other parts of the country yet to be explored.
"What an amazing property, everything you need to enjoy your stay, Ordering from ..."
What an amazing property, everything you need to enjoy your stay, Ordering from the farm shop and getting it delivered on you day of an arrival was brilliant, The only thing that could of made an improvement would of been a hot tub, but that's just me wanting it all
"The cottage was very comfortable, well equipped and ideally located for visiting the local attractions."
The owners and their staff made us feel very welcome and the on-site shop was a bonus. The regular visits from Tilly the cat made our visit extra-special. Playing the Hawkstone Park Golf Course is a must for golfers and is only one mile from the cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
"The listing on the property failed to mention that it was near a very busy "A" road with constant traffic noise audible within the property at all hours of the day and night."
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that it affected your stay with us. We don't pretend to be in a quiet backwater but the property is set 100m back from the road with fields and trees in-between and whilst it is an A road as you can see from the map of our property it isn't constant noise and isn't 24 hours. Most people love our location for ease of exploring the county. Thank you again for your valuable feedback. Property Owner
"The Tractor Shed is just stunning, the atmosphere that Fiona and Rob have created is very cosy and chilled."
We had daily visits from Maisie the dog and Tilley the cat both very well behaved and such an added bonus for us. We could have quite happily stayed in all week, it was that good. The farm shop (Maynards) is very well stocked with some scumptious products. Thankyou for such a memorable stay. Gail&Garry.
"We spent a very happy week in the Tractor Shed."
It is such a beautiful place and the view over the fields is stunning. The conversion is so well done and the light and space really lovely. The farm shop next door is wonderful and the children made frequent trips to by ice cream. There are lots of great local days out, we went to Chester, Shrewsbury, Attingham Park, Hoos Farm Zoo, the steam train from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster. It was a relaxing and special week and we would recommend the Tractor Shed highly. A couple of small things would have made it even better. In previous cottages there has been a cake or fresh bread left for us on arrival. After a 5 hour drive that would have been a welcome sight. Some washing machine tablets, extra loo rolls, and a clothes airer would have been helpful. But they are just little niggles and didn't spoil anything.
"Location lovely and amenities good would have preferred the property to have had a walk in shower but managed."
Having said that the property has a Super King size bed which was great and very comfortable this should be mentioned in the property description as we are always looking at properties which mentions bed size King size or more. Would be a good selling point for this property and if was mentioned in your other properties as a filter. Views of fields lovely with visits from Masie the dog and sheep was nice.
But be aware it is close to a busy road,
"The best property we have stayed at."
Stunning decor and spotlessly clean. We loved the log burner, big bath and the bed is so comfortable! The owners are extremely helpful and we adored our visits from Maisey everyday - such a wonderful character. We are already planning our next trip to The Tractor Shed. Thank you!
"Fantastic owners, great dog Maisie who likes to visit."
Ideal area to pop into north wales, Liverpool and Chester. Might be noisy in the summer when sitting outdoors due to the road other than that it was perfect x
"We both had an amazing relaxing stay here, couldn’t of asked for anything more perfect."
The owners were lovely and helpful and so welcoming and so is the dog! The views as well and the location so easy to get too with plenty to do and go to see places whilst there. Thank you both for a lovely start to 2020
"We love The Tractor Shed!"
Had a wonderful week. The owners have put their all into this barn. Beautifully crafted and furnished. Lots of little decorative touches to admire. II know this is probably down to personal taste, but we found the huge, gorgeous bed sooo comfortable; it was hard to leave it in the mornings! The way the barn is set up, you feel together all the time. A perfect, romantic getaway. There is a farm shop on site, so perfect for cooked brunch. Yum! However, you aren’t aware of it being there, so it doesn’t disturb your peace, nor the other holiday cottage. It’s a perfect place for visiting National Trust places & we discovered that Wollerton Hall gardens is just down the road, if only we’d come at the right time of year. A good reason to return! Not that you need an excuse. 11/10!
"Lovely luxury holiday home to explore Shropshire and Wales."
Very peaceful and relaxing setting on a farm. Well equited kitchen to cook a range of meals with also the basics being provided - salt, pepper, washing up liquid, milk, tea, coffee and sugar. Was lovely eating at the table over looking the green fields. We had great weather, Kids loved exploring and we had daily visits from a friendly black cat. Was warm inside on hot days due to one side being all glass but soon cooled down with doors open to let the air through. Owner was very quick to respond to any questions we had, but at the same time left us to enjoy our family holiday together which we like. A lovely home from home and we was sad to leave. Thank you to the owners of the Tractor shed for such a lovely holiday.
"As we had stayed at the Tractor Shed before we new we were going to a unique and amazing place."
The owners Rob and Fiona are extremely helpful.
"We enjoyed our stay in the Tractor Shed despite the awfull weather that week It's a quirky property, very comfortable, quiet and peaceful."
The county of Shropshire is a great place with lots of interesting things in the area to see & do. Rob & Fiona made us very welcome and Maisy the dog was a delight (what a character)
"This is just an amazing place in such a great location."
.. On arrival we were greeted by Fiona and the pooch Maisie and we were asked how we had found everything and that if we had any issues we could always pop over and ask! The Tractor Shed was amazing inside and out and it felt like a really luxury home away from home. You can't fault the place at all, it was spotless and had more than everything that you needed... I can't begin to express how happy I was as this was a surprise get away with my partner. I had also contacted Fiona prior to our arrival and asked if it would be OK that a guest pops over for one of the nights and we were very lucky as she agreed! There is also a farm shop on site and we tried a few of their foods which were delicious and even brought some home for my family. This is just an amazing place and we will definitely be visiting again. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone! Thank you to Fiona and family for having us!
"Amazing space, we loved this property and felt so comfortable there."
Would like to go back and have another break at the Tractor Shed. Awesome.
"Very easy to book."
"Fantastic, quirky, roomy property."
Family very welcoming including Maisy the retriever. Lots of little extras on arrival, milk in fridge, coffee, tea, sugar, s&p and washing up liquid. Despite temperatures of 5 degrees outside, all that was needed was a little sunshine to warm the Tractor Shed to a balmy 24 degrees and make you think you were on holiday in Spain and certainly not in Shropshire. Fantastic! Hawkstone Park & Follies, Chirk Castle, Chester and Shrewsbury all worth a visit. Co-op shop in Wem is only about 5 miles away, is fairly new and has good car park. Comment by visiting granddaughter, aged 5, was ‘I really like your new house’.
"The Tractor Shed was brilliant, owners Rob & Fiona were so welcoming and their dog Masie was so friendly."
The place itself was decorated well and had everything you could need. The location was perfect with places to walk to in the surrounding areas and not far from Shrewsbury town centre, with some lovely pubs within a few miles distance. I would definitely visit again. The only thing we could fault the cottage for was no shower (not a major issue!)
"The Tractor Shed is a joy to behold, peaceful, comfortable and very very welcoming - Fiona and Rob are wonderful hosts and Masie is excellent company when she just trots in which given the chance she will do and she is more than welcome ( if you don't like gun dogs well in her mind tough, you have to love her) ."
The views early morning with a frosty air are wonderful, and lighting up the stove, getting a book and curling up was an ideal way to spend a week away from office e-mails. Will certainly return.
"We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at The Tractor Shed."
Wonderful accommodation with fantastic views, equipped with everything we needed for a perfect weekend away. The hosts were very friendly and recommended lovely local walks. Lazy mornings, full English breakfast (made with sausage and bacon from the farm shop), a brisk autumn walk in the afternoon, back to The Tractor Shed for dinner, then curling up in front of the log burner - really was our idea of perfection. Thank you.
"Lovely place to stay when visiting Shropshire only one drawback no shower on the premises."
But really enjoyed the stay .. The owners were very nice and MAisy the dog is great
"We had a wonderful stay at the tractor shed, the children loved the freedom of running in the fields and playing with maisy the dog."
The shed it's self was beautiful and the views in the morning are one we will miss very relaxing. There is plenty to do in the area, hawkstobe follies, battlefield 1403, amazing local pubs. Would love to return.
"Really enjoyed staying here."
Open plan living, friendly and helpful hosts, lots to see and do nearby, and a farm dog and 2 cats for company. We stayed 2 weeks, went out walking every day and relaxed in the evenings. Highly recommended.
"The Tractor Shed is an amazing use of space - lovely large living area with high ceiling, huge glass front, mezzanine bedroom, well equipped kitchen and useful patio area."
Peaceful and quiet with panoramic views of sheep grazing. Also lots to see and do. The weather was perfect - hot and sunny. We did have to get rid of flies but that was to be expected with this long hot summer.
So beautifully done. Wonderful sitting outside in the evening and going for a walk to the fishing lakes. Owners very friendly and helpful. Couldn't have asked for more.
"SIMPLY THE BEST !"
Little point in repeating everything everyone else has said - - so one word sums it up for us - - FANTASTIC! We have stayed in lots of different places over the years and this accommodation is by far the best. If you are planning a stay in or around this area we can't think of anything better. Looking at the last review - - if there was a 'sheep' problem its been sorted - - Fiona we loved the sheep!
"Enjoyed the holiday but we did have a few issues."
1) Toilet seat was broken, they said that they would replace it, but it never got done. 2) The cold water tap on the bath was broken, and the toilet pull chain was also broken. 3) The railings on the patio fencing.......the sheep that were in the field kept rubbing their bodies on the fence and the iron railings kept coming out. The rail would be banging onto the property, this was not such a problem during the day but at 4.am every morning was not so good. The sheep them were able to get onto our patio and very kindly leaving their droppings. 4) The adjacent patio .....there was no fencing to the adjacent property let so the sheep would congregate on the patio in numbers, again leaving their droppings. The down stairs bedroom window was next to this and as you can imagine the smell was very bad. It didn't get cleaned up by the owners. We were unable to leave the window open. 5) There was no dishwasher in the property and when we went to use a glass there was still some lipstick on it, also some dishes had grease on them, we had to clean some items before using them. 6) In the information booklet at the property it said there was a barbeque and patio furniture.....all that we had was a bench which we had to use to block the fence so the sheep could not get through.
"Beautiful cottage and very friendly owners."
They left us to our own devices but were on hand if we needed anything. Great communications from Sykes in general throughout the booking; especially liked the reminders beforehand - very helpful!
"We had a lovely stay at your very comfy And homy cottage."
The wonderful countryside, very friendly owners And off course Masey ;-) Made the holiday complete. And even the weather was great. We hope to come back sometimes.
"Fantastic building in a great part of the country with lots of things to do right on the doorstep."
Friendly, helpful owners who made sure we had everything we needed. We had an excellent long weekend break with active days out & relaxing nights back at the Tractor Shed.
"A beautiful holiday home which, although next to the farm shop and owners home, felt very private!"
Having said that, the owners are friendly and there to welcome you or offer advice. They also make delicious bread! It is tastefully decorated and well equipped making for a luxurious and comfortable home from home. We did a lot of travelling out in the car but there was information for more local attractions. We rarely visit the same place twice as we like to explore but have already talked about rebooking. Stunning!
"Just back from a fantastic stay at The Tractor Shed and I’m already thinking about when I could go back."
We stayed here for two nights (4 adults and 1 small child) and wish I had booked for longer. The Tractor Shed is a beautiful barn conversation - exactly as described on Sykes Cottages. We really felt at home in the barn with comfortable furniture, amazing decor (I now want to decorate my whole house) and fabulous facilities. The stand alone bath was a real luxury before getting cosy on the sofa to watch a movie (we took our amazon box to connect to the tv to stream Netflix). There were also plenty of books to read in the gorgeous cabinet and many different board games and puzzles. The kitchen was one of my favourite parts of the barn with everything you could possibly need. We had two cooked breakfasts (amazing bacon and sausages from Maynard’s farmshop run by Fiona & Rob) and a full roast dinner. We found amazing fresh vegetables in a local farm shop about half a mile down the road and it was honestly the best roast dinner we’ve ever made. We had plenty of visits from Maisey the dog who was so friendly we were sad to say goodbye - especially my one year old niece. The Tractor Shed is a perfect getaway if you’re looking to relax. There is so much to do if you have a car to go exploring, with lots of local walks, bike routes and plenty of castles/parks/houses to see. I wouldn’t recommend to anyone without a car as there is no footpath on the main road. Check out was supposed to be 10am but we were told that morning we could stay for the rest of the day as there were no other gusts arriving that day which was very generous. I’d rate the whole stay 10/10 and will definitely be back. It made my 30th Birthday a wonderful weekend and I can’t wait to go back.
"Rob and Fiona were incredibly welcoming and friendly."
And the farm shop meant we had to go about 15m to get delicious food to cook in the stunning kitchen. Just the ticket for a weekend break from the city
"A fantastic home from home with quality furnishings, spotlessly clean and a fantastic location surrounded by sheep, with a farm shop next door."
A great welcome by the owners - nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended
"We couldn't have picked a more perfect place to celebrate a big birthday and girlie weekend."
Fiona(sorry Rob, we didn't get to meet you!) was just lovely-really accommodating, laid back and so friendly. The Tractor Shed was everything we hoped for-it felt like home but more interesting! It was quirky-absolutely loved the decor and accessories. The environment was relaxing, had great views with the added bonus of Maisie(the dog) who tapped at our door each day(very well trained-always in sociable hours!!) We have all had a really chilled weekend aided by the super comfortable beds/pillows and lovely linen. The Tractor Shed was so delightful that we actually struggled to go out each day ! We will definitely be back.
"Fabulous accommodation, stylishly presented and furnished yet super-comfy too."
A gorgeous home from home with the convenience of a farm shop just yards away for warm, new-baked bread and provisions. Hosts Fiona and Rob were friendly and welcoming and the cottage is in an excellent location for exploring both countryside and cities. I highly recommend!
"Absolutely LOVED the holiday cottage, the place was immaculate."
The décor was gorgeous and the attention to detail was amazing. We came with our two young boys who loved the sheep out front, the fancy dress box and the board games. It had everything we needed and felt luxurious and homely.
"The owners Rob and Fiona were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble."
Plenty to see and do within the area.
"Everything absolutely brilliant"
"A fantastic place to stay!"
The owner was so helpful and accommodating. Would definitely return. Absolutely beautiful.
"Stunning cottage and a fabulous atmosphere with a wonderful host !"
The farm shop close by is a definite gold star We will certainly be returning
