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.


What a little gem. Beautiful location, nestled deep in the countryside, fabulous walks, stunning views. This cottage is well laid out, well equipped and we were greeted by a roaring log fire. Thankyou Nicky and Dave for our fabulous stay, your resident ducks kept us entertained, they were beautiful. Hope to see you all again soon

A great place to relax and unwind
A delightful cottage in a quiet spot. Great for getting away from it all. Well equipt with all you need. The log burner was great on cold January evenings. Comfortable bed. A nice base to visit some of the area's beauty spots. Church Stretton and the Long Mynd are great places to visit, The Bucks Head in Church Stretton is a nice place for a meal and a pint or two of real ale. We had a nice stay and were pleased with all aspects of our accommodation.

Cosy romantic accomadation
A beautiful place to stay, well presented,exceptionally clean and in a gorgeous countryside location if you want to get away from hustle and bustle. The old workshop is well equipped and the log burner was wonderful. Lond Mynd and Stipperstones nearby for some excellent walking. Would definitely like to revisit. Thank you

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.

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.
