    “Beautiful setting; lovely barn conversion for us and our dogs.”

    What a beautiful part of the world. The accommodation is set in a hamlet surrounded by the Shropshire hills, with a few cottages and a farm nearby. Apart from the occasional tractor, the sheep dogs barking on there way to work and the sheep, this was a quiet peaceful place to stay. Not complaining about it, it was the sound of the countryside, just perfect.

    What a beautiful part of the world. The accommodation is set in a hamlet surrounded by the Shropshire hills, with a few cottages and a farm nearby. Apart from the occasional tractor, the sheep dogs barking on there way to work and the sheep, this was a quiet peaceful place to stay. Not complaining about it, it was the sound of the countryside, just perfect. The owners house was nearby, and she is lovely and helpful, not at all intimidating for us, she was there if you needed anything or just to chat and nothing was too much trouble. She told us where the nearest pubs are and where the best walks or drives are in the area. We enjoyed the drive over the tops to Church Stretton, be warned it is narrow and very steep at both ends. However, with care, it does reward you with wonderful views and some fantastic walks. The Crown was our favourite pub, great food, lovely choice beers for me and friendly staff and locals. The barn is nicely converted, and for us well equipped. It was very comfortable and clean and was ideal for accommodating our two dogs. The owner was very friendly and helpful and she was around if you needed anything or just to have a chat. Her cottage was close by, but we never felt intimidated by this. There is a decent size, and safe, fenced off garden that you can let your dogs have wander around. For us it was a great place to stay and to bring your furry friends with you. We had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend it.

About the location

ASTERTON

Church Stretton 5 miles; Bishop's Castle 7 miles.

The rural hamlet of Asterton quietly nestles on the slopes of the beautiful Long Mynd Hills, just 5 miles from the famous spa town of Church Stretton. This stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with its alpine style hills and valleys, is a must for any outdoor enthusiast with the surrounding countryside boasting many footpaths, bridleways and cycling trails across the thousands of acres of National Trust moorland and woodland areas. The pretty town of Church Stretton, christened 'Little Switzerland' by the Victorians, is close by and is set amid striking scenery. Still retaining its spa town feel, with natural springs being the source of Stretton Hills bottled water, the town is home to a variety of tea rooms, pubs, specialist shops, a huge antique centre and hill top golf course. Other nearby attractions include the Acton Scott Working Farm, the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre and magnificent Stokesay Castle. The historic towns of Shrewsbury, Ludlow, the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, Much Wenlock and Bishop's Castle are also within easy driving distance, all boasting wonderful architecture and offering a broad range of quality shops, pubs and restaurants, fabulous castles, museums and delightful riverside walks.
