There are many National Trust properties within easy reach of Alberbury, including Attingham Park, Powis Castle, Chirk Castle and Erddig.

Our stay at The Granary exceeded our expectations.. Wonderful welcome from Julie who also helpfully put away our food delivery due to our late arrival (bank holiday traffic!). Great accommodation, everything you could need, fresh eggs from the chickens and the hot tub was the icing on the cake. We will definitely be returning.

We had a couple of very minor hiccups during the holiday but the site staff were excellent and sorted them out immediately.. There were many excellent facilities for children which we didn't need, we almost wished we had some kids to enjoy them - almost!

This place is fantastic.. Great position for visiting nearby places and the facilities are fantastic. Under floor heating means your never cold and the hot tub means your never stressed. The play barn, animals and absolutely everything was just superb and if we ever come back that way we will come back to these cottages !

Wow, the cottages are amazing. We have recently returned from a fabulous holiday in the arches, a cottage in upper house farm cottages. Our cottage was clean tidy and very well equipped with an amazing hot tub, fish pond and barbecue outside. The four bedrooms were large with three en suite bathrooms all with shower. The kitchen was superbly equipped with dishwasher, washer dryer fridge freezer etc. The kids (and bigger kids) loved the play barn with many hours of badminton enjoyed. The pool table, air hockey and table football took a bashing most evenings. The surrounding area is very beautiful, many trips out to Shrewsbury welshpool and Ironbridge were enjoyed by the seven of us. We thoroughly enjoyed the week we stayed here. Highly recommend staying here for anyone any age.

The Granary provides excellent accommodation in an ideal location for visiting lots of places.. The three en suite bedrooms are clean and comfortable and the hot tub is an added bonus. The kitchen/living/diner area is spacious. The staff member we met, Julie was welcoming and helpful. The friendly dogs and cats and the fish pond behind the property were an added delight for the grandchildren. The play barn and playroom are very well equipped. Our only suggestion is to provide additional cooking utensils for example another frying pan and pan and plastic foodware for younger children

A lovely well kept property. The play barns are a wonderful bonus they cover all ages from baby to adult. The honesty shop is a great idea and I have to say bought the best home made Lemon Drizzle Cake ever. Lovely outdoor seating area with a very large hot tub. The owners were on holiday but the Manager was great, nothing was too much trouble for her. Recommend for all ages.

Clean and exceptionally well presented property and care taken by the landlord and his wife. The hot tub was fantastic, very quiet and tranquil complex even though it was New Year. The play barn was clean and immaculate and safe for toddlers. The high quality of bedding and towels added to the overall enjoyment of our stay. A Christmas tree in the lounge area added to it all.

Had the most amazing time at the granary... It's the perfect location if you want to do nothing but go for beautiful walks and chill out although it's still only 20 minutes from Shrewsbury! We loved the hot tub and the underfloor heating! The rooms are so clean! We loved having the dogs around too! Happy guests and we will be returning
