The Wainscott is a charming barn conversion in an 18th century Grade II listed building. The semi-detached property has three-bedrooms, comprising one twin, one double and one fitted with children’s bunks.

The Wainscott has been renovated to very high standards and has a fitted kitchen with dining area, bathroom and cloakroom and a sitting room with a cosy wood-burning stove. The barn conversion is set in a beautiful 22-acre smallholding deep in the Shropshire countryside. The owners can offer eggs and home-grown vegetables from their farmhouse door, and visitors will love the sheep and chickens which are reared on the busy smallholding. The holiday property features a lovely fenced-in garden, which is perfect for outdoor dining. Visitors to The Wainscott are also offered the use of a year-round tennis court plus the chance for some coarse fishing on a nearby one-acre pond.


Fabulous family stay ?? ?? ?? ?? ??
From the minute we found the cottage we were blown away by the fantastic grounds and facilities it has to offer. The view from the front door alone is priceless let alone knowing most of it belongs to Peter and Helen. The garden is a perfect place for children to play with a patio area with seating to eat out - we had breakfast in the sunshine most mornings. Out of the gate at the bottom of the garden is the sheep field, at the bottom of the field is the old oak tree with swings underneath- endless fun - if a bit 'farmy' . Through the top gate leads to the little lake complete with an island to voyage to and another tree swing. Up past the lake over the top field is the woodland walk with the tree house and woodcutters hut. Helen kindly showed us around her beautiful garden and we had apples, beans and tomatoes fresh from the plants. The hens only managed one egg but it was lovely. Peter showed us his bees and talked to us about the fabulous home he'd created for his family, which is probably why it was such a perfect place to spend a week with our own family. Hosts were lovely, house and grounds amazing x

This is a very nice cottage, set in beautiful surroundings. All of the rooms were perfectly clean. We would thoroughly recommended this property.
Mr Henson

Fantastic accommodation, certainly met all our needs, a very relaxing and comfortable stay.
Mrs Bottomley

Beautiful setting, the grounds and surrounding area were amazing. It was well placed for access to many places of interest. Having once lived in Shrewsbury for over 10 years it was good to visit old haunts and friends.
Mrs Ellis

A large house which was spotlessly clean with lovely furnishings. It had a beautiful large garden, with a wildlife lake just at bottom of garden. Quiet and peaceful with very helpful owners.
