  • "Had an amazing time as a group of 12 friends."

    The beds are comfy and all the rooms were extremely clean with lovely showers, everything you need in the kitchen, only negative we would mention is the oven, it took an extremely long time to heat up and cook anything so be mindful. The views are amazing and we hope to return in summer so we can use the other facilities. People staying in the other cottages had private helicopters so we all enjoyed watching them.

    Thank you for providing us with your feedback. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back any time in the future. Property Owner

  • "We have just returned from a week at The Park."

    The property suited our needs well (6 couples). The bedrooms were comfortable with great en-suites. Not a huge amount of shelf space but overall adequate. The lounge was big enough for 12 sitting on two settees and two chairs. The kitchen was essentially well equipped with an abundance of good glassware, dishes and pots and pans. 2 dishwashers were a bonus and were well used. Lovely big table and comfortable dining chairs. Big fridge and separate freezer - both great. The oven however left a lot to be desired, took ages to cook anything and if you left food in a dish near the bottom of the over the bottom ended up burnt! The hob was no problem. We used the swimming pool once and were not enticed back. Not a welcoming building and the so pool needed some TLC!! The photos of The Park needed a description with them as there were pictures of the ‘hospitality’ suite and we all thought when originally viewing the property on line that those pictures were part of the property we rented. We had a few issues that needed addressing whilst we were there and these were dealt with efficiently by the Manager Sharon. We loved the location and certainly would recommend The Park for a group of 6 couples. We enjoyed our week there very much.

The property

Craven Arms 2.8 miles.

Enveloped by the rolling Shropshire hills and situated within striking distance of the market towns of Craven Arms and Ludlow, is this stunning, converted barn property, The Park.

This detached, all-ground-floor property is one of three barns that nestles in the grounds of a 2000-acre country estate, where guests have shared access to an indoor swimming pool and tennis courts.

With six well-presented bedrooms, superb facilities and great location, The Park makes a wonderful base for hosting a large friends and family holiday.

Soak up your countryside surroundings before stepping into the barn and being welcomed into the kitchen/diner.

The chef of the group will be delighted to find a quality range of appliances in a contemporary assortment, certain to entice a spot of home-cooking by making the most of the elegant preparation spaces and the double electric oven, gas hob, microwave and two dishwashers, offering a helping hand.

Settle down for dinner at the large dining table and toast to a wonderful holiday before tucking into your dish.

From here, you will find a spacious sitting room, where a plush seating arrangement is awaiting to be sunk into, as you flick on the TV with Freeview and Sky or retreat to the table to host a family games night.

Completing the interior are six bedrooms, all containing their own en-suite bathroom and are all south-facing, so that you can look forward to waking up the stunning rural views each morning.

Choose between a king-size bedroom, a family bedroom with a double bed and a single bed, two doubles and two twins, ensuring a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit the needs of any party make up.

During a balmy afternoon, head out to the large garden, where you can light up the barbecue and enjoy a spot of alfresco dining, or why not challenge a loved one to a game of tennis?

Continuing to impress, The Park comes with shared access to a heated indoor swimming pool, which can be booked to use exclusively for your party.

If you can tear yourself away from this superb property, venture into nearby Craven Arms, where you will find the supermarket of Tiffins and a number of shops for picking up any essentials, as well as a pub and a number of takeaways.

From here, travel to the nearby village of Wistanstow, home to The Wood Brewery, where there is a charming pub attached so that you can sample the local beer.

Alternatively, venture to Ludlow, which has a reputation for the quality of its food and drink, with a range of restaurants and cafés, awaiting to be enjoyed or brush up on the local history by visiting Ludlow Castle, which is considered to be one of the most interesting castles in the Marches.

The Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where you will find a plethora of walking routes, amidst a varied and special landscape, which is rich in geology and wildlife, will delight keen walkers.

Alternatively, you could head to Church Stretton, which is nestled between the Long Mynd and Caradoc Hills, renowned for their scenic walks and excellent golf course.

Other places to visit whilst staying here, include historic towns of Bishop's Castle and Shrewsbury, where you will find further amenities and attractions.

The Park is a splendid retreat promising a relaxed holiday in Shropshire.
