  • "This is an amazing place."

    We visited in February 2024, finding that this place was big enough for us to holiday with some friends of ours. They have a family of five and we have a family of four, making 9 people in all, including 5 children (all under 10 years old). It’s nice that it’s a bungalow so you don’t have to worry about stairs and children falling down them, and it didn't feel in any way cramped with all the people staying there. This place is it is massive! All the rooms are a good size, but the kitchen / diner / living room is just huge, and a great place to hang out. The weather was just ok while we were here, but that didn’t matter as there was plenty of space to play for the kids without having to be outside all the time. It’s also a very quiet place. When you look out the window all you see is fields, and a little pond/lake. It’s worth mentioning that it is brand new. This is a great thing, as almost everything in it is new, but there were a couple of ‘teething problems’ when we were there. The owners were very quick to respond to our issues, but we’re aware this is common when things are new. We couldn’t for the life of us work the record player, for example, but the owner has said she will put in instructions to make this easier to use. We experienced a small leak of water during the heavy rain above the main sliding doors too, but again, the owners addressed this. They were only small and understandable things, and nothing that stopped our stay there from being a great one. It’s worth mentioning that it’s a bit of a drive to the nearest shops. There’s a Co-op in Wem 12 minutes away, but Lidl & Tesco are a 20 minute drive away in Shrewsbury. Not big issues, but just worth being aware of. Despite the weather, we did still manage to get out, enjoying visits to Shrewsbury, Hawkstone Follies and Chirk Castle. All of these places were lovely, and there were plenty of other things we could have done if we were there for longer. There’s certainly plenty to do in the area. We couldn’t really fault the place. It’s a great holiday home and we had a great time there. It had everything we needed, and we would love to stay there again, which is why we’re rating it 5 stars.

  • "I stayed at Grange Barn a couple of weeks ago with some friends and we all loved it!"

    The single-storey accommodation is very spacious and built to a high standard. Despite its size and exposure, it’s very warm and cosy with underfloor heating and good insulation. It is also very well equipped, not just in terms of furniture, kitchen equipment etc. but also in terms of supplies provided by the owners, which far exceeds what most other such accommodation offers. The owners are also very helpful and responsive, I found them a pleasure to deal with. There are 4 good sized bedrooms, one double bed and 3 kings that can be split into singles, the 2 bathrooms (1 ensuite) are spacious with large walk-in showers and dual shower heads, a rain shower and a handheld one. There is also another toilet with a sink, making 3 in total. Even the hallway is spacious and has its own sofa! The coup de grâce is the open lounge and kitchen, it’s enormous and extremely sociable for entertaining and celebrating. It also helps that noise is not an issue, even if the bluetooth Bose speaker (also connected to a vinyl record player) is at full blast. The large, enclosed patio will be brilliant during the summer, the owners already have outdoor furniture and a BBQ would be a welcome addition. We didn’t manage get to get the outdoor hot tub going due to bad weather but it’s another indication of the quality of the accommodation. The secluded location can be difficult to find, the postcode is useless and will take you to the wrong place, using what3words (https://what3words.com/library.flexibly.unlisted) and/or following the owners’ directions is your best bet. The coordinates for the venue are 52°50'53.3"N 2°48'48.3"W – you should be able to enter these into Google Maps to find the exact location. The venue can be used to explore the local meres or for more varied and challenging outdoor activities both the Shropshire Hills and Clwydian Range & Dee Valley areas of natural beauty are around 45 minutes drive away. I highly recommend Grange Barn as a venue and intend to go back at some point.
