This impressive four bedroom property near the village of Cardington in Shropshire is able to sleep up to 11 people, making it ideal for a vacation with a large group of friends or family.

This impressive cottage is part of a grade II listed barn conversion, which is situated on the owner’s 700-acre farm in the hamlet of Plaish near Cardington. Dating from the 16th Century, this property offers a range of period features as well as all necessary modern amenities including oak beams, wall timbers, exposed stone walls and four wonderful bedrooms. Guests have the use of two games rooms within the owner’s grounds in addition to a private two mile farm and woodland walk, a picnic area, and an abundance of wildlife. Children can also enjoy the opportunity to feed the chickens and enjoy pony rides whilst the owners offer stabling together with hacks and cross country jumps with access to the Jack Mytton Way.


The owner was very welcoming. We enjoyed the walks, which were accessible from the property and the games/activity facilities were great. The house was a perfect size for our family, and it was extremely clean and very well equipped.
Mrs Gerrard

Great weekend in a fantastic setting. The Olde Cow House was lovely and warm on arrival, with plenty of character and all the basics that you'd need. Outside was brilliant for children and adults. We were lucky enough to see new born lambs, feed the pigs. Owner was very friendly without being obtrusive.
Mrs Mccarthy

This was one of the best Sykes cottages we have stayed in. The accommodation was spacious and very well equipped, with loads of thoughtful additions for parents like highchair, plates and cutlery, cups, toys and even a pushchair! Outside, we didn't even notice the poor weather - everyone was entertained by the animals, the play area and the tennis court. My son loved collecting eggs from the hens and seeing the pigs. Nearby there is a lovely and very reasonable pub in Cardington and we found plenty to do in the surrounding area. We'd like to go again when the weather is better so we can make more of the countryside walks.
Mrs Paxman

The House was amazing and very spacious. You need take nothing but food and drink as the house is so well equipped.
Mrs Whittingham

Beautiful setting, very comfortable throughout and well thought through. Owners were very pleasant and helpful. Our party enjoyed our week thoroughly.
