This impressive four bedroom property near the village of Cardington in Shropshire is able to sleep up to 11 people, making it ideal for a vacation with a large group of friends or family.

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.


Great week away with friends !!
We stayed for a week during half term and really enjoyed the experience. Overall enough space for 10 people and everything you needed was available onsite to feel like it was your own home. We used the games room, played tennis and feed the animals so had plenty of fun! The gym & pool was first class. With the location of property being so far away from civilisation they are needed in my opinion. If you want to keep active and have alternatives to long walks then this is worth using. The price to use the gym & pool is fair for Adults but in my opinion should be free for children under 12, they can?t use all the amenities available as the adults can so felt this was harsh to change £10 for kids. The owner was hardly noticeable, but available most of the time if you had any questions. Overall if you are looking to switch off in the countryside and get away from the hustle & bustle of normal life then this is an ideal place to stay :)

Wonderful family trip!
We visited to celebrate our Dad's 60th birthday from across the country. The house was lovely and extremely welcoming. It was spotless and very well equipped with all the essentials. Loved the original features and it was just so cosy in the cold winter months. The surrounding farm is idyllic and the farm animals were the highlight of each day for the children (along with the pony grooming). The facilities were excellent and the swimming pool was a firm family favourite. The host went out of her way to make our visit extremely special and we can?t thank you enough. Wonderful place to stay and you won?t be disappointed!!!

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
