Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Horn
May 2019
Lovely house and great hosts! Absolutely wonderful place to stay.
Mr Ettery
December 2018
The Barn was a very cosy home from home property.. We had a lovely stay. There wasn't anything we wanted for. It was very clean, warm and welcoming and would recommend to anyone. A point to make is that it is a working farm that starts early doors and you get regular visits from a 4 legged friend at the front door so please don't go expecting peace and quiet.

Another lovely holiday.. The barn is a superb apartment in a good central position, handy for such places as IronbridgeThe farm shop has some lovely really tasty produce- no wonder it's on Rick Steins food heroes list!

Had a great break at the barn.. It was very clean and comfortable and lived up to expectations. An ideal spot for discovering Shropshire and beyond. Very friendly owners and even friendlier dog Masie. We will definitely be going back.

I have stayed at The Barn previously in 2012 so it was great to go back and stay. The Barn is very well equipt with everything you could possibly need. A definite home from home. Unfortunately did not see Fiona this time but the staff at the Farm Shop are extremely helpful if you need anything. Would highly recommend and will definitely stay again when I am next in the UK.

The Barn was absolutely perfect, we could not fault it..

We are a couple and stayed in The Barn in April 2018.. The directions were clear and the location was peaceful and tucked away. The Barn is up a set of stairs and opens up into an open plan living room and kitchen, a home away from home. Comfy sofas, tv and DVD player and a small woodburner are in the living room and the kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed, including strong wifi. The double bedroom had a beautiful view overlooking the fields and plenty of storage, The bathroom is small but works well with an over the bath shower. The whole property is filled with natural daylight. The Barn is about a 10-15 min drive from Whitchurch and we found the location easy to use as a base to visit nearby villages and larger towns. Overall we had a wonderful 5 days, we felt like we lived there rather than on holiday and would recommend The Barn to anyone wanting a low maintenance self catering holiday.

Fantastic accommodation with a lovely modern country feel, very comfortable in a relaxing location.. A very warm welcome on arrival and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed here because we were attending the fantastic one day butchery course run by Rob, Fiona and the adorable Masie (the super friend black retriever) Excellent Farm Shop on site and lots to see and do in this lovely part of England. All highly recommended.

Great holiday once again, Sykes holidays does a great Job of keeping you informed and giving you accurate information on how to contact the owner, key collection etc.. The Barn was another property that lived up to our expectations and enabled us to have a relaxing time.

The owners of the Barn, Fiona and Rob, were so friendly without being overbearing.. The accommodation was stunning and had everything you needed. Had a fantastic weekend.
Mrs Hamer

The Barn is ideally located to access so many good walks and visitor attractions.. We only stayed for one week but could have easily stayed longer. Was not short of anything on our stay. Even the resident dog "maisy" was super friendly ❤ Would definitely recommend.

We had an amazing weekend at the barn over the new year weekend. The barn has everything you could ever need, the barn is well presented and the log burner keeps the rooms toasty. The owners are very nice and are happy to give advice on the local area and let you walk the dog in their fields. The farm shop on site has some exceptional pork meats and local products on sale and the staff there were also very helpful and recommended some of the specialities / personnal favourites (you get a discount at the shop when you stay at the barn). We will definitely return for another relaxing weekend with the dog.

In a very quiet location and the owners made us very welcome. The Barn is well situated, allowing easy access to Wales and other surrounding counties. This was an excellent place to stay, we would definitely recommend to others.

It was an excellent week and we packed a lot in. We really liked the accommodation and the owners were extremely nice and helpful. I would love to go back there and I will!!
Mrs Smith
February 2016
We particularly liked how well furnished, warm and cosy The Barn was, it's really home from home when you can have such a lovely place to sit and relax. The bed was extremely comfy, and the cottage was warm, particularly important in February, and there was plenty of hot water.
Mr Phillips
February 2016
The Barn was a wonderful property and ideal for exploring the wider Shropshire countryside. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly and were very helpful in the family history research we were doing. Having their farm shop and the bakery on site made for delicious fresh local produce. An ideal location for a short break!
Mr Schmid
September 2015
A lovely setting, and the décor/design of the property was extremely good. The hosts were extremely friendly and the food from the farm shop was amazing.
Mrs Parker
July 2015
The apartment is located on a farm in beautiful countryside. The owners live on site and are friendly and helpful. Also there is a farm shop on site selling artisan breads and pork products. There was lots to do in the area, whether visiting a national trust property or long walks along the waterways. All in all an excellent base to explore the area.
Mrs Jones
May 2015
It was very peaceful and quiet, the farm shop and bakery on site were great. The property was not far from places to visit and the supermarket was only 6 miles away. Will be returning here soon. This property is also dog friendly which is great. A big thank you to the owners.
Mr Harmston
February 2015
We really enjoyed our short break. The Barn was cosy and well equipped and the owners are a very welcoming and friendly couple. The use of their fields to exercise or dog was an added bonus. We wouldn't think twice about booking again and therefore highly recommend The Barn.
Mr Sherriff
January 2015
Very relaxing and quiet. The TV, black and white movies a wood burner were perfect! We all enjoyed the break, including the dog!
December 2014
The Barn is a lovely place to stay. Plenty of room to spread out, parking by the bottom of the steps. Lovely views through the lounge windows. The owners were very friendly without being intrusive, and the staff in the shop were lovely too. Spacious bedroom plenty of storage for clothing. Wifi a bonus feature.
Mr Pallot

The Barn was an excellent, well appointed cottage and a perfect base to explore the beautiful countryside around, which even at this time of year had so much to offer.
Mrs Bennett

Fabulous barn in a beautiful area. The most comfy bed ever.
Ms Langley-brown
August 2014
An especially comfortable barn conversion with ample space for two… Maisie the dog is extremely friendly, just like her owners. We had endless pleasure watching the sheep in the evenings. A haven of peace and tranquillity in the North Shropshire countryside. It felt like home.
Mrs Downs
July 2014
The Barn was in beautiful countryside with magnificent views. The pictures on the website perfectly matched the reality. We enjoyed the comfortable seating as we watched the sheep from the window. It was easy to access Shrewsbury, (Park and Ride) and other places of interest from the road outside the gate. The rooms were lovely and light with natural lighting and there was more than enough storage space for our clothes etc. The bed was one of the most comfortable, apart from ours, we have ever slept on. We liked the old cradle which when we arrived had the lovely thick towels in it.
Mrs Circuit
December 2013
As this was a little break over the Christmas week we wanted it to be relaxing, quiet and peaceful. This is exactly what we received! Being a military family means a lot of upheaval and time apart so to spend a delicious week in this little barn surrounded by the countryside is exactly what we wanted. We cannot praise it high enough.
Mrs Hughes
October 2013
Lovely location and people, they could not do enough for us. We will stay there again, and would be happy to recommend it to friends. It was lovely and warm, and the seating area is very cosy.
Miss Turnbull
October 2013
Beautiful surroundings, tranquil setting, loads of space! Wish we would have known about the farm shop in advance!

The Barn was very comfortable and the owners very welcoming and helpful.The farm Shop is a few steps away for beutiful meat,sausages and home baked bread.Perfect for a couple.Very good location for exploring Welsh Marches and area.So much to see we will have to go back.
August 2013
Really lovely place to stay to escape from it all, nice and quiet, great for dog owners, was able to walk round owners field with our dog. The barn had everything we needed for our stay, the owners were away so we didn't meet them. The farm shop was great too.
Mr Mackey
July 2013
A spacious and well appointed house in peaceful location, and with the bonus of the farm shop on site for wonderful fresh baked bread and meat. The owners were very friendly and helpful.
Mrs Wickett

The cottage was nice and spacious and was in a nice farm area with fields around.
Mr Boak
March 2013
Very quiet and comfortable. The cottage was brilliantly appointed and was really spacious and airy. The farm shop was great.
December 2012
The cottage was good, not much places to go for a walk, you have to drive the car if you need to go even to the nearest pub, which was great at all. The service was very good and friendly. Nice view from the bedroom window, but a bit unusual that the cottage is on the first floor, so there is no private garden really. Very good farm shop just right next to the cottage. Nice lake isnt far from the cottage but only for a short walk around. Overall it was a good romantic stay.
Ms Ashworth
November 2012

July 2012
We received a lovely welcome from the owners. Perfect for the dog as we were able to walk her in the fields. Great days out to attingham Park, Wroxeter Roman City and Ellesmere. However the best was Hawkstone Park just down the road. The Barn was a very nice cottage for a weeks holiday which we thoughly enjoyed.
June 2012
This was really lovely luxurious accommodation with every conceivable item supplied to make your stay as comfortable as possible, real attention to details. Fiona and Rob were the perfect welcoming hosts. Everything you need at the Farm Shop and close to good walks. Wem is a lovely local little village where tasty and reasonable meals were served at the Fox Inn. All in all great!!!

We enjoyed the warm and friendly welcome from the owners, and the convenience of the fantastic farm shop on site. Being central to so many lovely attractions and walks was lovely, but mostly we enjoyed the peace and tranquility whilst there, despite the road being within yards of the property. We absolutely loved it.
