  • "Pool Barn is located in a very quiet and beautiful setting close to a lake a couple of Craven Arms surrounded by glorious countryside."

    The only downside for us was synthetic bedding but otherwise it was very comfortable and clean. It was was a great location for the Shropshire Hills Doscovery Centre, Stokesay Castle and Ludlow and made a perfect weekend getaway.

  • "Lovely stay at Pool Barn, it had everything we needed for a comfortable stay."

    On the way, missed the turning to the property and car got stuck due to bad weather. The owners and other locals were very helpful in getting the car back on the road. Our daughter and her friend loved the barn and meeting the resident dogs! Remote location great for a quiet few days away but still within reasonable distance of things to do.
