  • "Very good property in a lovely village location really close to Shrewsbury."

    The accommodation was excellent and the facilities equally as good. The whole group remarked on how comfortable the beds and pillows were with good quality bed linen. Dining in the Haughmond was marvellous, the food was the tastiest I have eaten in years and each choice sounded so good it was hard to choose. Service and ambience were top notch. We throughly enjoyed everything about The Barn and it’s location.

  • "Lovely stay."

    Great location, high standard of conversion. Would benefit from a small garden but we used the pub garden. Very helpful staff, would definitely recommend.

  • "The property was clean and welcoming, beds lovely and comfy, nice shower and heating worked well, tv large and clear."

    Unfortunately a few things let the property down, poor kitchen facilities , oven tricky to use(no instructions for hob and kept going off) oven door doesn't open fully so needed two people to use- one to hold open door while other put food in oven. A mixture of plates/bowls , and in fact only 3 soup/cereal bowls so difficult when there was 4 of us and property sleeps 6. Pans were really bad, bacon and egg stuck solid to pan and was horrendous to clean cheap non stick. Microwave was stuck on top of fridge really difficult to reach and no way could see inside as too high up and far back. Various pieces of furniture broken, handles, chair spindles and draws unable to pull out, so couldn't use the one in my room. No hangers, and finally no instructions or separate bin for recycling so all went in bin. Plus no blind at kitchen window (not good first thing in morning) which looked directly onto pub garden would not like to visit in summer as no privacy. All these things could quite cheaply an easily be rectified improving the property by another star.

  • "Lovely barn , really comfortable and cosy place to be."

    The coffee shop next door also fabulous. A few small things to improve for future : a few side tables for having tea / coffee be good and no hairdryer. Other than wonderful and well equipped. Great for with a dog as lovely public footpath 2 minutes away.

  • "A fabulous barn conversion with everything well thought out and catered for all our needs."

    It was like home from home, furnished to a very high standard, immaculately clean and just as the website described. The owner was friendly, helpful and available when needed and staff were all helpful and welcoming. The facilities were exceptional, with a cafe/village store across the courtyard, for breakfast/lunch and supplying local produce. The coaching inn onsite too, where we had the most fabulous meal in the restaurant. It was wonderful. We couldn’t fault it. We chose The Barn at The Haughmond as it was dog friendly and we were bringing our 5 month old puppy. I understood from the description on the website that the accommodation had a garden area adjoining the barn. This was to a degree true as the beer garden for the pub was adjacent to the barn, but had no direct access to the garden without leaving the barn. We used the grassed area first thing in a morning and last thing at night, but was not ideal during the day as it would not have been appropriate for beer garden users to tolerate a young pup running around. This was the only criticism (if any) that we found. Apart from this, we would definitely return and use this accommodation again. We had a wonderful week and would like to return to discover more of this lovely part of Shropshire.

  • "We had a fantastic week at the Haughmond Inn Barn."

    The barn is beautiful, spacious and homely. The staff at the Inn are fabulous and we were made to feel very welcome. The food there is amazing. We had the best Sunday lunch ever and a delicious taster menu. It was a perfect base to explore Shropshire and we recommend a walk around Haughmond Hill for fabulous views of Shrewsbury. We will definitely be back!

  • "There are quite a few issues with allot of the cabinets which makes them unusable in the bedrooms."

    Make sure you take some necessities, you do get a welcome pack though. We had to buy all cleaning products The barn is nice a cozy and very spacious and it’s all dog friendly. It’s a good base to lots of areas so most places only a 20 minute drive. You can log into Netflix and Prime tv for quiet evenings although there are no DVD’s provided for the DVD player. All in all a good stay

  • "The only thing we’d like to comment on is that if you wanted privacy and a place to sit out that was not public, this is not the place to go to."

    It’s very close to the inn so there’s always people around and the seating area is right by the car park. No windows to see any views which is a drawback. Hosts very welcoming and helpful. Area lovely to visit with lots to do. Accommodation very spacious and comfortable.

  • "Really lovely barn, comfy beds and spacious."

    Took our own oven gloves after reading previous feedback and this was a good move. There was one issue with the barn and that was the musty smell that was quite strong coming from the bathroom. Otherwise it was excellent.

  • "We had a lovely holiday in Shropshire, lovely weather, and lots to do with very small children (1 x 20 month old, 2 3."

    5 year olds) The property itself was fine, but seriously under-equipped in the kitchen. (No oven gloves, or anycloths to wash up with, a lot of the plates were too big for the dishwasher, and there were no sensible bowls to name but a few omissions). However the rest of the property lovely. I suspect we were not the owners' target audience - if your ideal holiday is to eat in the pub 10 metres away and not cook, this is a perfect property for you. With three small children in tow, this wasn't really our scene. That said, the owners were very friendly and helpful whenever we had a query, even taking our online shop in, when we didn't turn up on time as we got stuck in traffic!
