The Coach House is a charming 18th century semi detached Grade II listed barn conversion which has been traditionally decorated and furnished to provide cosy, well-equipped accommodation.

The Coach House is one of two sympathetically developed holiday homes on the owner’s 22 acre smallholding which is home to sheep, chickens and a large organic kitchen garden from which eggs and seasonal vegetables can be bought. The cottage has two bedrooms, fitted kitchen with dining area, sitting room with welcoming wood burner, and a pretty, fenced garden – a lovely place to relax and dine in after a day’s exploring. Guests benefit from the use of a year-round hard tennis court and coarse fishing (including carp) on the well-stocked 1 acre pond, just 100 yards from the property. Enjoy walking and cycling in the surrounding countryside, or visit the many historical attractions nearby.


We really enjoyed our two week stay at The Coach House. The owners were very friendly and approachable. This property is ideally suited to families, with a big area available to be explored around the farm and in the woodland area. The house was warm and cosy and just a short drive from Shrewsbury. A real home away from home in a lovely location.
Mr Peterson

A lovely rural location with ample attractive grounds, a tennis court and a large yet cosy country kitchen. The property is close to the main road into Shrewsbury with many places of interest nearby. The owners were friendly.
Mrs Mitchell

Shropshire is a beautiful county and The Coach House was the perfect base for exploring it. My daughter (15 months) loved seeing the sheep every morning and particularly enjoyed collecting eggs one afternoon.
Miss Lester

The location was beautiful and the owners of the house were very hospitable. A lovely place to stay and unwind.
Mrs Barnes

Delightful, cosy cottage in secluded spot, well furnished and appointed and good parking facilities. Beautiful location, owners could not be more accommodating or friendly.
