This ground floor barn conversion, pet friendly cottage on a working farm sleeps 4 people and can be found in the village of Stapleton near Church Stretton in Shropshire. Within driving distance are the historic towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow.

The Old Dairy, as its name suggests, was originally built as part of a dairy house. It has been sympathetically restored to offer accommodation for 4 people, retaining much of its original character through features such as exposed beams and the original cattle stall, which now partitions the lounge from the dining room. The accommodation is arranged across one level and the property has a rear patio, from which to enjoy a spot of outdoor-dining.

Visitors also get shared use of a games room, which includes a snooker table and a netted trampoline. There is plenty of parking and the local amenities are merely a stroll away.


Old Dairy was a lovely looking holiday cottage with lots of character and comfortable furniture especially the beds. The location was ideal as it was near many interesting little towns and delightful walks. We were however disappointed as its facilities were not as good as all the other 4 rated cottages we have stayed in eg microwave with very faint digital display/ poor ensuite shower and no antiviral surface cleaner in these covid times, to list just a few. It felt like the cottage had been set up a number of years ago then left to its own devices with nobody checking info book/ equipment etc.

A fabulous cottage, wonderful friendly owners and a great location. We would definitely return there and would recommend it to everyone.
Miss King

Great location to visit Shropshire. Wonderful work on this old building which gives a terrific character to the cottage. Cosy evenings near the wood burner and good nights in the comfortable beds. Wished we could have stayed longer. Thanks to the owners for a warm welcome.
Mrs Ansart-crane

It was a very cosy cottage on a very friendly farm. It was fascinating being able to see pictures of what the place looked like before the conversion and the owners have done a fantastic job! All in all, a very good base for exploring the area.
Mr Warburton

The Old Dairy provided fabulous accommodation. Peaceful, beautiful surroundings, ideal to access so many places. The cottage was first class, beautifully decorated and furnished, great facilities. We wanted for nothing and would definitely recommend it and hope to return again sometime.
