This is a fabulous brick built barn conversion located on a working farm and sleeps two people in luxurious comfort.

This delightful, brick-built semi-detached barn conversion has been thoughtfully renovated to provide a romantic retreat for two people that is both characterful and comfortable. The accommodation is all on ground level and the living space is open plan. The cosy lounge area has a log effect electric stove and makes the room an inviting space, whilst the modern kitchen is well equipped and has a charming dining area. The tastefully decorated bedroom is spacious and elegant and has the advantage of an en-suite shower room. Outside the property is a small courtyard to the front with furniture and views across to the Long Mountain. With some of the original beams and exposed stonework still in place, this is a beautiful property from which to enjoy this wonderful area.


A really lovely cottage and hosts.
Mr Hunt

Very friendly hosts. Hosts were there if needed. Quiet and remote cottage with lovely scenery and everything you could wish for in a holiday cottage.
Mrs Barnes

The Dairy was a perfect place to stay. It had everything you needed to make use of and was very cosy. We had a very warm welcome from the owners. It was a really good base to see and do all the lovely local attractions. A week wasn't long enough!
Mrs Theobald

If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable place then look no further. The various sized properties are on a working farm at the end of a narrow lane in the quiet village of Leighton, but within in easy reach of most of the Shropshire attractions: Ironbridge, Telford, Shrewsbury etc. And for walkers The Wrekin is on the doorstep. The property we stayed in is a beautifully converted dairy barn that sleeps 2 people. The property is well fitted out and shows that a great deal of care has been put in by the owners. If like me you crave peace and quiet, comfort, hospitality and scenery this is for you, it has it all. Although its a working farm the herd is a beef herd and the only sound in the morning is the birds!! The owners are very hospitable, although we didn?t get to see them much, but the little welcome present of home cooked cakes, when we arrived was a lovely touch. Overall a lovely venue, although we only stayed for the weekend, we will most definitely be back.
