  • "Enjoyed our stay at The Barn."

    The farm shop on site was well stocked with delicious locally produced products. The owners were friendly and helpful and the location is excellent for trips out. The accommodation is well thought out with everything you could need for an enjoyable stay. We feel that the steps leading to the property could be a problem for anyone with mobility issues but you are made aware of the number of steps when booking.

  • "The property was good to look at when you walk in but,when you come to use the facilities it was a very different matter, the frying pans were old and did not sit on cooker very well, the pan handles got very hot."

    The cooker was gas and lit by matches that were so small you burnt your fingers .The smoke alarmwent off as soon has you lit the cooker.The bathroom was very small and the bath was to big for the space, someone bigger than me would find it very difficult to use. The T.V. had it's Freeview restricted to BBC channels only. The loose rugs on a slippery floor in the bedroom constitute a serious risk of injury heightened by a low level bed.

    Dear Maureen thank you for your feedback. I have noted your comments and rectified what I am able to do. You are right the frying pans were a little tired so have now been replaced. I have ordered some anti slip under rugs although that has never been a problem before. I have replaced the gas hob lighter which seemed to have gone missing. Unfortunately we are tied by health and safety regs and have to have that type of smoke alarm in the property and they can be sensitive. The bathroom Im afraid is what it is and for most people it seems perfectly adequate but we do know it isn't particularly spacious. I hope you still managed to get some enjoyment out of your holiday and it wasn't a completely negative experience for you both. Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay, ideal location for visiting Stately homes etc, lovely owners and a nice farm shop on site,one small gripe, the bathroom is very small,with quite a high bath to step into for a shower, I think this should be noted as an elderly/infirm person would have serious trouble getting into the / out of the shower, also a "large" person might find it a tight squeeze in the actual bathroom."

    Thanks for your feedback Anthony I will ask Sykes to mention this is in the description of the bathroom. Im so glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    It’s cosy & comfortable with the added bonus of having the shop on site. Rob & Fiona were very welcoming but not at all intrusive. It was our first time visiting Shropshire and the cottage proved to be a great base to explore this beautiful county. We loved the history, the food and the people who are so warm & friendly.

    We enjoyed our stay at the barn but we thought that the bathroom needed updating the toilet doesn’t clear at the first attempt and the shower is awkward to get in and out of maybe a stand up shower would be a better option

    I am glad you had a nice time despite a few issues. Unfortunately where we are in Shropshire has a very high water table and when we have had a lot of rain this affects our septic tanks and makes flushing the loos slow. Sadly we cant do much about it and I think we had had a huge amount of rain at the time. Property Owner

  • "Lovely hosts with a wealth of information on the local area and a really nice property with a great deal in its favour, however, the lack of attention to detail stopped it from achieving a 5 star rating, e."

    G. no non slip bath mat for a bath/shower combination, two broken chairs, mould around the shower partition, if you cannot perch on high bar stool chairs at the breakfast bar a small occasional table has to used for meals, the sitting out area is overgrown with weeds with no chairs which would need to be taken down a flight of stairs from the house to be used. Fully accept the house is located within a business area, however, loading/unloading of vehicles starts around 7am in the car park area which is overlooked by the bedroom window and farm machinery working in adjacent field until 12.30 am was not conducive to a good nights sleep. The property promotes the fact that a farm shop is on the premises which is obviously a draw for prospective customers so a small discount within the shop when used by the ‘guests’ would be a nice gesture. Each small issue above would not deter a return visit, but taken together, they did take the lustre off which would otherwise have been a 5 star rating

    The barn itself is beautiful, large and equipped with everything you'd need for a few days away. It is spotless throughout and Rob & Fiona are the loveliest hosts. We booked this for no other reason than to treat ourselves to a short relaxing break and immediately found ourselves unwinding. This beautiful place, in this beautiful setting (and not forgetting the farm shop too!) already had us pledging we'd return. If you're thinking of booking here... do! You won't regret it!

  • "The bathroom is very small and it's not easy to get into the shower/bath."

    We are agile for our ages but others may have problems. The heating seemed to struggle in this weather so the log burner would be essential if staying inside for long periods. DVD player did not work but hopefully owner will sort out problem as we notified them of the fact.

    Thank you for staying at The Barn and providing feedback on your stay. We're sorry that you found access to the bath/shower difficult, this is not something that has been mentioned before. We found that the plumber who previously attended had turned the heating system down via the boiler which is why it was not operating fully, we found this out once you had mentioned it. The DVD player is now fixed so thank you for letting us know. We hope that this did not have an effect on your stay. Property Owner

Comfy sofas, tv and DVD player and a small woodburner are in the living room and the kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed, including strong wifi. The double bedroom had a beautiful view overlooking the fields and plenty of storage, The bathroom is small but works well with an over the bath shower. The whole property is filled with natural daylight. The Barn is about a 10-15 min drive from Whitchurch and we found the location easy to use as a base to visit nearby villages and larger towns.
