This one bedroom property is part of a 19th Century barn conversion, set in the heart of a pretty village in Shropshire.

This 19th Century, stone-built barn conversion adjoins the owner’s home on a 10-acre smallholding between Picklescott and Pulverbatch. At just six miles from Church Stretton, this romantic retreat is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has been tastefully renovated to combine modern conveniences with original features. The property includes a large galleried bedroom with exposed oak beams and trusses, a warming wood-burning stove and a secluded, patio garden with views across the countryside. The property is close to all the local amenities of Church Stretton as well as being within easy reach of many activities.


This is a delightful place to stay with great ambience and facilities which meet all practical needs. The hosts are most hospitable. Caerleon and the surrounding district offer a wealth of historic sites and outstanding natural beauty.
Mr Withers

The cottage was beautifully furnished and was set in a peaceful location. It was excellently equipped in every room. It was a pleasure to stay there and we could not fault anything.
Ms Rees

The Old Workshop was lovely & had everything we required. We definitely would return. There were plenty walks in the surrounding area & many nice pubs.
Mr Palethorpe

The wood burning stove and unlimited logs were very welcome. The cottage is situated in beautiful countryside, with no light pollution or road noise, yet close to everywhere. The cottage is lovely and well thought out with absolutely everything you might need provided.
Ms Sciepko-cram

The cottage is furnished to a high standard and was cosy and welcoming. The wood burner was very efficient and kept the cottage warm, even upstairs so the insulation was amazing. It had everything you need for a short stay and the hosts made sure everything was satisfactory. Nearby pubs served delicious food and the local people were friendly everywhere we went. It was a fabulous location for walking and getting away from it all. We can highly recommended.
