  • "We were getting together for a holiday with our children and grandchildren (a party of 12 including small children and teenagers) and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily return."

    The accommodation had lots of character and there was plenty space to enable differennt activities to happen at the same time without our feeling we were on top of each other. The kitchen was well equipped and spacious so that we were able to cater for large family meals, which we thoroughly enjyed around the impressive dining table, without any problems. Karen, the Property Manager, was very friendly and helpful. We were particularly grateful for her flexibility over our departure time - possible because the house was not booked for the following week.There was an issue with the supply of hot water to the bedroom wing at first but, once this was reported to Karen, it was resolved the same day. An issue with a toilet couldn't be dealt with immediately but with many bathrooms (and the extra toilet in the utility room) this wasn't a big problem. The only other serious issue was the condition of the long driveway/track which was severely potholed so that we needed to drive very slowly and carefully to minimise discomfort and to avoid damage to the car suspension. The uphill climb from the main road, in particular, was heavily eroded by the recent heavy rainfall. It really is in need of some serious maintenance and improvement.

    It’s all very comfortable, well equipped and clean. The huge games room was a hit with everyone and was well used as we needed some entertainment in bad weather! It’s quite a remote, rural setting in beautiful countryside accessed by an unmade road - not a problem for us but worth being aware of.

  • "The barn was perfect for our needs."

    We really appreciated too the big pans that allowed us to cook for the big number of people we had. Often you get small pans in places like this. We loved being able to see the stars and not have the glow of the city around us. The road on the way was perhaps the most tricky and I can imagine it would be really tricky in the winter months. We were happy to have 4 wheel drive. It's also really in the middle of nowhere, and not really that near Shrewsbury, so it's really a place to get to and escape. Don't expect the town to be near by. On a maintenance front we did run out of how water in the morning. Is the boiler man enough for the size of the property and the number of people? Might be good to warn people about that for future. But once the tank had enough time to recover we could get the hot water back on later in the afternoon. But communication was great from Sykes and very much appreciated.

    The house was beautiful and very comfortable. It suited our large party very nicely and we were all delighted with our rooms. It was nice to get off the grid and really chill out with family from different parts of the country. The facilities were excellent and there was penty to keep us amused. We explored the countryside on bikes and by foot and it was truly beautiful.

  • "We were a family party of 12, age ranges from 10 to 80."

    The bedrooms were versatile enough for all and the games room was a winner with everyone and accommodated our bikes. The estate was wonderful for walking and small villages were well within reach on foot. Farther afield were the Long Mynd and Wenlock Edge which we also visited. The weather was fantastic so that obviously added to the pleasure too. We even had good weather on our barbecue night! The garden was ideal for our two dogs - large and enclosed. Small children would also be totally safe. The kitchen facilities were good and adequate for the number of guests. The sitting room was wonderful but was generally only used in the evening when we took advantage of the gorgeous fire. We loved the dining room which was plain, roomy and stylish. We ate in there every evening. There were some small issues which we communicated to the housekeeper - things like blocked shower heads, loose toilet seats, missing dishwasher wheels and a non too clean oven. We also wondered whether a water jug could have been provided. We were also informed about the state of the approach road which was quite tortuous but apparently it was to be repaired in the very near future. All in all, we thoroughly recommend this property as we know that every member of our party enjoyed their stay there.

    Thank you for leaving this feedback for us to be able to improve upon. We apologise for the smaller issues and are always on hand to rectify these if a phone call is made to us, but we will make sure all of those issues mentioned above are resolved. We are overjoyed to hear that every member of the party enjoyed themselves and look forward to hopefully seeing you back soon. Property Owner

  • "This is an amazing place."

    The pictures are accurate. It was good to have 5 rooms in one area and 2 in the other, this worked for our family. The games room is amazing, cold for this time of year but in the Summer it will be incredible. The big barn doors open on both sides. The BBQ facilities were good, there were 12 of us and 2 dogs and it more than serviced our needs. There were enough plates, glasses etc and it was good to have a dishwasher and a tumble drier. There were games there already and jigsaw puzzles which kept some of us busy and the area is good to explore. The only downside, not relating to the property, was the road leading up to the property. It's full of big potholes so you need to be careful. All in all 10/10. Cannot fault it. I think we will be back.

    Amazing to hear that you had a lovely stay with us. Thank you for taking the time to leave this comment, we value all feedback as we want to ensure that we maximize our guest experience and appreciate your recommended improvements. Property Owner

    The games room was perfect for family games (although a little cool), lounge and dining rooms easily fitted us all in and there were plenty of glasses, crockery, pans, etc. The only downside was the pot-holed farm road on the way in, likely due to recent bad weather. Karen, the manager, was lovely and even talked my dad through the directions when he got lost on the way there. We'd definitely book this again. Thanks.

  • "14 members of my family (and a dog) aged between 11 months and 85 years spent a fabulous weekend at Stockbatch Granary."

    The bedrooms were all clean and comfortable. The large lounge gave us all plenty of space and the games room, which was even larger than expected, was a hit with everyone. All areas (except the games room) were always warm and there were sufficient logs for a fire each afternoon/evening. The Granary appears to be well used, the furniture is not pristine, but this made it a more homely and a more relaxed stay as we were not afraid to make ourselves at home. The kitchen was well stocked (except for an ice cube tray, or at least I couldn't find one!) There were sufficient cleaning products, tea towels and dishwasher tablets for our entire stay and a welcome tea/coffee/milk and biscuits selection for when we arrived. We had an issue with the temperature of one of the ovens (right hand) as it didn't get very hot, but we managed with the other oven and grill. Karen, the property manager was on the end of the phone and quickly answered any questions. I'd definitely recommend Stockbatch Granary for a stay.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, we are happy to hear that you would recommend us. We appreciate all constructive feedback, so any changes or improvements that can be made we will definitely look into. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again Property Owner

  • "Just returned from a lovely weekend away for a family members birthday get together."

    The granary is exactly as advertised and had everything we needed as a family of 14 and 3 dogs. It was a property that was made for that size party with kids and dogs, a little worn in places but when you are staying somewhere that will accommodate children and pets that completely understandable. The bedrooms were very comfortable and clean and set out well with a wing separating the main living area from the bedrooms with the games room. There were then 2 bedrooms above the dining room/hallway if you wanted some peace for putting young children to bed early (a floorplan to show this would be a great asset). The setting was amazing !! Lots of space (very muddy in the winter) for dog walking and so remote and peaceful. We especially enjoyed the barn owl which flew across the garden many times during our stay. The garden was very secure for kids and dogs (a small gap in the gate that maybe a small dog could squeeze through) but our dogs were even safe at the front while we were loading and unloading as there is no through traffic. The last point I will make is that the property manager, Karen was brilliant. She got in touch a couple of days before the stay with all the information we needed for access etc and her personal number if we needed it and also called and on the morning of the stay to let us know there were diversion signs in the village and how to navigate around them...fantastic !! Many thanks to all involved.

    It would also have helped having some shade in the garden, especially with children around, which meant we had to keep them indoors on sunny days and having the doors and windows open meant lots of flies inside. The sofa was also uncomfortable and in need of a clean. We had a slight problem with the dishwasher however, Karen, the site manager was very helpful and quick to respond and the staff we did meet were really helpful and friendly. We would recommend staying here, it is very remote, which is what we like, with lots of space and generally had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. Thank you

    Thank you for your feedback and we're sorry to hear that you found the sofa to be uncomfortable. The vast majority of our guests have loved the British-made sofas but can understand that they may not have been to your taste. In relation to the shade in the garden, there are trees to offer some cover and we may look to add a parasol in the future. Property Owner

    Weather was very kind to us. House is warm and comfortable with lots of seating and great enclosed garden for the dogs. Plenty of hot water. Being able to walk from the door and explore the estate was amazing, the dogs were exhausted. We saw deer, pheasants and hares. Lots to do in the area if you do want to venture out. Well equipped kitchen great for cooking for hungry folk. Games and DVDs for evenings. The private track is not a problem if taken slowly. Internet is rural and slow. Expect to be able to pick up emails but you're not going to be able to game or use for work purposes. We had a private tour of Pitchford Hall and also had a private caterer in on our last night to do a 3 course meal and all the serving and washing up. If you want a pristine, luxury boutique hotel experience this isn't for you. If you like cosy, comfortable country living and are happy to walk, explore, read, play games and spend time together I can't imagine anywhere better.

  • "Overall we had a lovely family weekend away at the Granary."

    The travel directions on the Sykes information were very poor but the property manager helpfully directed us to accurate and comprehensive directions on the Pitchford Estate website. We needed 7 rooms but were surprised and a little horrified to discover 2 of the double rooms whilst ensuite didn't have any privacy screening around the toilets! The Games Room was unheated and very draughty so, given the sub zero temperatures over our weekend, it was largely unusable which was a great shame as that was one of the USPs when we booked. None of us had a phone signal at the Granary and WiFi was poor and only available in the main living room area which was a surprise and those of us who had taken work to do found it quite difficult to get anything done. There was no satellite/TV signal so we tried to watch programmes via the Iplayer but it regularly buffered making watching TV no longer enjoyable. We had taken our own DVDs which was lucky as those at the Granary were mainly suitable for children. We were disappointed at the small amount of logs provided for the log burner and these only lasted the first night. We needed the log burner lit to supplement the radiators in the evenings so managed to scavenge some wood from the Estate and then had to buy logs from local shops. Overall the property is looking a little tired and worn and in need of a little TLC. Although not directly related to the accommodation, we were very disappointed to see a local hunt with hounds and terrier men using the fields around the property and were concerned enough about the welfare of a number of sheep in the field next to the property that we contacted the farmer who was sadly not minded to take any timely action to help animals in clear distress.

    This is a great property, the space you have is amazing, but if your expecting luxury accommodation you will be disappointed, I guess that is reflected in the price. Its all just a bit tired. Considering it sleeps 14 people, the kitchen is quite poorly equipped....no usable frying pan and only 3 tiny baking trays (big enough for 3 decent slices of bacon!) feeding everyone at breakfast time was a bit of a nightmare! The showers and shower heads were mouldy and there's no locks on any of the bedroom or bathroom doors. My husband and I slept in room G, at the end of the bedroom wing and there were squirrels living in the roof.... they started having a party up there every morning from 5.00am! The WiFi is virtually non-existent, which can be great to have a break as long as you know about it, but unfortunately some of our party have Internet businesses and couldn't reply to enquiries etc. Also, there is nowhere to hang clothes in the bedrooms. On the whole we had a great time, because of the company and the space we had....there are just lots of little niggles about the place and if they were sorted it would be an amazing place to stay.

    Thank you for your feedback. The issues raised have been discussed and will all be rectified shortly. We are upgrading the WIFI with another company and this should be done in the next week to improve speeds. If any guest has an issue during their stay , please contact us as we are always happy to assist. Thank you again for your comments. Property Owner

    We could have done with more hanging space in some bedrooms. However, the postcode is wrong on the Sykes website (SY5 7DN). The local manager Karen advised us of the correct postcode (SY5 7DS) in due course which was great for our party to find the location. However, Tesco was given the original postcode and it couldn't be changed online without starting from scratch. This wasn't possible but, as it was only one letter out, we hoped they'd find us as they might have been before. Obviously not.

    It's position in the middle of nowhere, but next to a small working farm within a large estate, was great for us and a brilliant experience. We were a family of 6 people and it did serve us well, although a little big. The kitchen was well stocked but was missing a must important piece of equipment - a corkscrew. The large fridges and freezers were great but no door storage. The large range was a feature and easy enough to use. Plenty of bedrooms for all of us, all with their own ensuite is a great selling point for this property. Then there is the suspended log fire. Beautiful. Would have been nice to have smaller logs to put on though. The ones provided were rather large. However, it did not go without its drawbacks. There wasn't always a bath math provided and so had to use a towel. We couldn't work the washing machine and there were no instructions. We didn't use the dish washer as it looked quite muggy and unclean. One or two of the bathroom basin felt as though they had a rescue on them. But the biggest thing I found was the dust on the sofas. They had obviously not been moved and patted down for some time. Even the spiders had taken up permanent residence. Now I know it was a Granary with brick walls inside and out which by its nature creates dust all the time and it was always going to be rustic rather than pristine, but the sofas had obviously never been been hoovered or puffed up for some time. Even though we were the first in from the Covid 19 ongoing situation, I felt it had been left during lockdown and not freshen up before we went in. This of course did not spoil our overall enjoyment of the place, the landscape and nature within it, but I would expect more in the way of cleaning, freshing and keeping on top of this beautiful building. I would be happy to return again with a larger group to make it more cost effective even though it had been reduced due to numbers by the pandemic.
