This impressive cottage is part of a grade II listed barn conversion, which is situated on the owner’s 700-acre farm in the hamlet of Plaish near Cardington. Dating from the 16th Century, this property offers a range of period features as well as all necessary modern amenities including oak beams, wall timbers, exposed stone walls and four wonderful bedrooms. Guests have the use of two games rooms within the owner’s grounds in addition to a private two mile farm and woodland walk, a picnic area, and an abundance of wildlife.

Children can also enjoy the opportunity to feed the chickens and enjoy pony rides whilst the owners offer stabling together with hacks and cross country jumps with access to the Jack Mytton Way.


Family holiday
This is a wonderful holiday destination. Exceeded expectations. The house is much larger than the photos portray. There is every conceivable convenience and equipment. Every bedroom has an ensuite or own bathroom. Beds very comfy. Lounge area warm, cozy and comfortable. Great location with great views. The spa was the icing on the cake. Such a luxury, beautifully done. Host very helpful and welcoming. We would definitely recommend and hope to be back.

Thank you
We had a fantastic weekend at The Olde Cow House to celebrate my 40th birthday with family The house was lovely, clean and very comfortable. The location is beautiful and the children enjoyed the animals and walk in the countryside. We had a lovely time in the swimming pool and games room. There was lots to do in the surrounding area. Thanks again!

Amazing Christmas stay
Booked quite last minute after a huge search for a home to suit our tastes and needs for the Christmas week. We wanted something with beams, knocks and crannies, odd sofas and chairs and that country look. This house has it all. The last 10 minutes of the drive the road is single track and the with the rain, meeting a car even with a passing space was scary especially with the weight of Christmas in the car. Got stuck once and lost once! This home is worth the drive. I don't think the pictures do the place justice for eg we worried if we would all fit around the table for Christmas lunch as it looked small but yes it's huge with lots of room. All rooms en-suite, with Tv's. There's a fire but lots of radiators and it was a mild Xmas this year, but we did turn the heating off and use the fire a few times. The children-3 teenage, one under 10 loved the games room, and go carts in fact so did the adults! So much to do, a swimming pool to hire out for your own private use, pigs to feed, chickens to collect eggs from, tennis court children's play area, swing ball, pool, fussball, a piano, table tennis, carols round the tree, a lovely local pub which is walkable to and dog friendly. This place is perfect for every trip away. We had an amazing Christmas Thank you to the owners

Fantastic place to stay
Stayed here for a week towards the end of february this year. The property itself was amazing, so much character, and really well equipped, it has everything you need for a stay. Swimming pool was really good, and there's plenty of other activities for the kids, such as go-karts, tennis, and exploring the farm. The location is excellent; rural enough to be very peaceful, yet within easy access of Shropshires many attractions, making this property a perfect base to explore the local area.

Wonderful stay
We stayed here for a long weekend with family members to celebrate our daughter's 30th birthday. The barn is absolutely beautiful and the surrounding countryside is also breathtaking. The owner is nice and very helpful. The swimming pool was fun and also the go-carts. Loved feeding the pigs and ponies. Would return and recommend to others.
