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.

Excellent venue, al facs
We have been here ywice and wil return. It ticks all the boxes for a family get together, 4 bedroomms all with facs. Tennis court, pedel bikes for kids, animals to see and feed, a boating lake and walks in the farm and woods, attractions nearby . Swimming pool as an extra was superb. Great property. Nice owmners

Wish we could have stayed longer...
It was a lovely retreat for a couple of days (for my 50th). Lots of space, lots to do, wonderful countryside. Swimming pool was niche... and nice... (costs extra, but understandable and justified). Owners were very accommodating and helpful. Highly recommended.

Great for families
A great location in the Shrophsire countryside. Great for families. There were go karts, lots of outdoor areas to play on site and The Olde Cow House was a lovely house. The kitchen was very well equipped, there were childrens toys and books etc. Very homely. A great house. There was a swimming pool which you paid for separately on site. It's a little expensive for what it is and you are only allowed 2 hours in the pool - this is a strict 2 hours so be sure not to overstay. This was my only complaint actually as we were ushered out in a very unrelaxed way to allow members in. We had to be out by 5pm and members are allowed in from 5pm. It would be way better to have a 15 minute pause inbetween as a changeover time as it did taint our visit to the pool a little. Aside from that it was a very enjoyable stay and i would highly recommend it.
