  • “8 of us, 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 4 kids under 7, booked the coach house at Wistanstow for a week.”

    We had a super time. The hot tub, the pizza oven, bbq and grassy area all had plenty of use. The cottage was roomy and comfortable and the facilities were all good quality. The owners, who lived next door, were friendly and helpful. Nice to hear the church bells ringing too. Only negatives were poor WiFi and a surcharge to use the bbq. We would definitely recommend this property and we will probably book again in future.

Glebe Barns

Two remarkable barn conversions set within the quaint village of Wistanstow, within the magnificent Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Each styled with chic and contemporary furnishings that perfectly compliment the character and charm of the properties' exposed brickwork and decorative beams, and boast a large open-plan living space hosting a kitchen, dining area, and sitting area with woodburning stove, guests have access to all the essentials for a smooth-sailing self-catering stay. Both cottages are complete with a fabulous garden space featuring plush outdoor furniture and a luxurious hot tub, as well as ample off-road parking. The village of Wistanstow can be found hosting an idyllic 12th century Church (popular for weddings) on the Roman Rd in the village. This is in walking distance to the cottages making them ideal for wedding parties. There is also a village smithy shop, a quaint village hall and a quintessential pub, which is a quintessential boutique brewery and restaurant, where you can enjoy a quick pint with some of the locals. Just a pleasant stroll away in the town of Craven Arms, guests can grab a coffee at one of the many picturesque cafés or delight in an evening on the town with dinner and drinks in one of the many restaurants. Also at the heart of Craven Arms lies a handy train station, providing easy links to many local towns and villages, such as the medieval town of Ludlow where you will find the fortress ruins of Ludlow Castle and the wonderful landscapes of Whitcliffe Common Nature Reserve as well as Michelin starred restaurants, and the nearby town of Shrewsbury with an 18th-century prison and 11th-century castle all waiting to be explored. Be sure to visit the the grand and medieval manor of Stokesay Castle and Stokesay Court, or step back in time at Acton Scott Historic Working Farm. No trip to Shropshire is complete without a day spent hiking through the luscious green landscapes of Ragleth Hill, Carding Mill Valley and Rectory Wood, and embracing the awe-inspiring views from High Vinnalls. Enjoy the famous Long Mynd for walking, mountain biking or gliding sports as well as being a haven for birdspotting.
