  • "Had a wonderful time exploring the surrounding hills, then releasing our aches and pains in the hot tub."

    Would certainly recommend and will definitely visit again…Lemon Drizzle Cake was a great touch.

  • "The location was superb and the Old Barn itself was just as photos showed, so no complaints."

    Only suggestion maybe do the netflix etc for lounge area more comfy viewing.

  • "Second visit to Old Hall Barns."

    Loved our stay in BARN 2. Everything you need for a home. Hot tub lovely, every day no matter what the weather. Beds are hard so I took my memory foam topper which helped as I do suffer with aches and pains. We'll be back.

  • "Lovely area and nice property the hot tub was excellent just what we needed when getting back from a long walk with the dogs."

    Would stay again but maybe the sofa in the living room needs fixing it was a bit uncomfortable, but it did not spoil our stay. Good enclosed garden for the dogs they loved it.

    Decent shower required in a cubicle rather than over a Bath.

  • "Great house in a lovely quiet area."

    Good location for visiting different areas of Shropshire via car. Would stay there again. The house was well equipped in the kitchen however I found a couple of pans had quite loose handles - still useable though. Could benefit from a second chopping board for when cutting raw meat rather than using the one for everything. The hot tub was great, but the house could really do with a door mat inside by the back door as when coming in from the hot tub outside you can still be quite wet so this drips straight onto the floor. We also took our own towels which was a god send especially with the kids being in and out of the hot tub a couple of times a day, it made it so we had a spare towel for when showering.

  • "We had a lovely time at the property, it was clean and well equipped."

    The hot tub was lovely. The barn is close to some beautiful walks and a decent pub within a five minute walk. The only negatives we had was a mat is needed inside the front and back door as the floor gets wet when it’s been raining. Also there are gaps in the fence so our dogs could see next doors dog and we had a dog who was scared to go out and another who is reactive. Also the dogs couldn’t go in any other rooms only the kitchen, I understand them not going in bedrooms but they couldn’t go in the lounge. On saying that the kitchen had a tv in and a big sofa so we stayed in there. We had a great time though and would stay again.

  • "The property was well equipped, comfortable and well maintained."

    The week of our visit was quite wet, nationally, not just Shropshire. The only suggestion I would make is to have door mats INSIDE both front and back doors especially during wet weather. Otherwise a lovely week in a beautiful area and the hot tub was the cherry on the cake.

  • "We had a great stay at the old hall barn 2."

    The bath is well equipped with everything you need, the bath is a lot bigger than expected, with lovely homeley touches. The hot tub is just an added bonus. Garden great for the dogs, there is a back gate which is a bit stiff which could do with improving when coming in that way with the dogs after walking. We spent a lot of time at the lovely local pub, beautiful walks are literally on the door step, amazing scenery. We were a little surprised that the dogs were not allowed in the living room or bedrooms, so we spent all our time when together in the one main room. When there are more than two of you it would be nice to have another chair to sit on rather than just the dining chairs. Nevertheless we had a lovely time and the beds were very comfy. There is a washing machine and the owner provides an airer, and a washing line outside.

    We enjoyed the hot tub and the really beautiful views watching the sunset from the tub! Staff were around on sight and very friendly and really helpful both before and during the stay. Downstairs was very accessible for my disabled mum (other than needing to get upstairs for the shower, it was perfect!) We would definitely stay again.

    Could not fault anything regards to the above mentioned as in cleanliness, facilities.

I have already passed on the details to 4 friends and we will be coming back as soon as possible.

  • "Cottage was in a very good location, with excellent walks on the doorstep while still being very close to all amenities."

    While the cottage was comfortable, there was a lack of attention to detail. Loose kitchen cupboard door; broken cutlery tray in dishwasher; very noisy bathroom fan and difficult to regulate shower. The bedroom curtains were very thin, so we were woken at 5 each morning when the sun came up. I would recommend this cottage, but only as 3*** accommodation.

    My dogs were very happy in the enclosed garden. Lovely views from the hot tub! The owners were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. There was plenty of wildlife to watch from the garden - my mum even saw a heron close-up, that came down to the stream at the bottom of the garden. There are a lot of walks nearby, with Long Mynd and Carding Mill Valley virtually on the doorstep. Church Stretton is about a 15 minute walk (or a quick drive) away - a pretty little town. The golf course also welcomes walkers and dogs (on leads, there are sheep everywhere) and you can get a coffee there when the clubhouse is open. We had a nice lunch in the beer garden of the pub in Little Stretton, which also allows dogs. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay if you like walking, or just want to sit and relax.
