  • "I cannot fault the lovely 7 Day stay that I had with my Mum."

    The property owner/s and families are all so lovely and welcoming that we could not wish for more. Just the right balance of being there if we needed them. The environment is wonderful and Betty's Barn can accommodate for up to 6 People. There is onsite parking too which is a huge plus. I cannot wait to return sometime in the near future.

  • "The owners are very welcoming and helpful and the cottage was very spacious, clean and well appointed."

    It is in a lovely quiet rural location but only a short drive from Church Stretton where there are restaurants, pubs, deli, supermarket, etc. The beautiful village of Much Wenlock and the impressive Ludlow are only are also close by. All in all a perfect base for a countryside break and great for walking.

  • "If you want a nice peaceful relaxing break look no further than Betty's Barn."

    A perfect place to stay for recharging your batteries watching the horses. A beautiful piece of paradise in the Shropshire countryside. Absolutely nothing to say other than try keeping me away. Would recommend if you like space around you and you and your kids are animal lovers then you will be totally at peace here. Wild animals wouldn't keep me away and I used to use another holiday provider but not any more. Sykes cottages all the way from now on.

    Lovely dog-friendly barn conversion in a beautiful, peaceful setting. Very spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. Even better than the pictures on the website. As a city dweller it was wonderful to see stars with no light pollution on the clearer nights! Easy drive to great walks along Wenlock Edge and Long Mynd and other Stretton Hills. Would definitely return. In fact, I am about to book again for 2022!

    Beautiful scenery right out in the countryside, views of the sheep in the field, horses in the livery stables, large collection of Different birds; ducks, hens, peacocks, finches, owl. Lovely walks around the area with the dogs including the owners large garden with lake & woodland. So many places of interest to visit in & around the area. Would love to come back in a couple of years to just chill out again & relax.

  • "We’ve stayed in quite a lot of self catering flats and cottages over the years, but Betty’s Barn is by far the best we’ve experienced."

    The cottage was clean, comfortable and extremely roomy. Mrs Kite had put a Christmas tree up for the previous occupants and left it there for us to enjoy! On the table were 4 boxes with lots of chocolate treats and 3 small bottles of wine. What a lovely surprise! We certainly enjoyed bringing in the New year! On New Year’s Day, Mrs Kite came over to wish us a happy New Year and invited us to come and meet the horses etc. We were feeding the peacocks peanuts, which is something I have never done before! My daughter and I walked round their private gardens, absolutely beautiful! The peace and quiet certainly was most welcoming. Will definitely recommend.

    Central to visit the beautiful countryside and National Trust Properties. 3 year loved the animals especially when the dogs and peacocks came to visit. Lovely garden to visit behind the house. One negative it could do with another set of mugs and large plates so that two meals times could be washed at same time in dishwasher. Otherwise one of the best properties we have stayed in over the last 20 years.

  • "Betty's Barn is a gem of a cottage, beautifully renovated, but keeping it's charm and character."

    It is spacious, warm and cosy and the owners are very friendly and welcoming - there if you need them, but always respectful of guests' privacy. It is in a wonderful location and the woodland walks within the grounds were perfect for our dogs - keep a lookout for the intersting sculptures dotted around! The surrounding countryside was an artist's palette of wonderful Autumn colours and we were lucky with the weather which, although cold and crisp early morning, developed into days that were warm, bright and sunny - what a fantastic time of year this is to visit! It is within easy reach of a variety of interesting places, Carding Mill Valley and Gigrin Farm Red Kite Centre being our particular favourites, but can also recommend Ludlow Food Centre and restaurant. We would definitely return to Betty's Barn and have already recommended it to family and friends and would like to thank the Vine-Kite family for an absolutely wonderful holiday!

    Nothing was too much trouble, we only needed to ask and it was there. The local woodland walk was well signposted and easily accessible. Our elderly mother thoroughly enjoyed the experience particularly the peacocks and chucks. The horses were an added bonus for her entertainment. The downstairs cloakroom was great for the elderly and infirmed who might struggle with the stairs too often. Overall a tranquil experience.

  • "A super cottage with very friendly people running it."

    You just had to ask if you wanted anything. Took my grandson around the farm closing the birds up at night and collecting the eggs. He said it was brill. My grandson definitely wants to go back there again and there is still so much to see in the area that we never got to. Only 2 points I would like to make are that 1 of the bathrooms is not truly en-suite as you have to go out of the bedroom to get to it and the other there was no details of items to be recycled.
