This pet friendly, barn conversion cottage on a working farm sleeps 4 people in the Shropshire village of Acton Burnell just 7 miles from the historic market town of Shrewsbury and is just a short drive from Bridgnorth and Ironbridge.

Virginia Cottage was originally a barn set on a working farm. It has been converted to provide accommodation for groups of up to 4 people. The conversion has been undertaken with great care and the cottage retains much of its original character through features such as a wood-burning stove in the lounge.

The decoration is modern, yet comforting and the property backs onto a private patio from where you can absorb the rolling scenery or enjoy a spot of summertime dining. Walks are available through the farm and the cottage is located close to other walking trails. There is parking for up to 2 cars, although the local shops are 2 minutes away on foot and the local pub is 4 miles away.


Amazing stay
We expected it to be good after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. Penney and Henry are so friendly and helpful. Cottage was spotlessly clean and cosy with a welcoming box of goodies. If you want a really good meal out, go to The Horseshoes at Dorrington. You won't find a better meal anywhere and the owner and other staff are very welcoming. Highly recommend this cottage for a break.

Amazing Cottage
We have just stayed at Vaginia Cottage for a week, a can't put into words how amazing this place this! Very well looked after, the cottage is immaculate, spacious and well kitted out! Penny and Henry the owners made us feel very welcome, we were told if we needed anything all we had to do was ask. I was sad to leave the cottage on Friday i loved it that much. My 2 girls aged 4 and 8 and myself and my wife have fallen in love with this gorgeous cottage, and we cant wait to return. So penny and Henry thank you once again, and we hoped you liked your flowers and thank you card. See you all next year! Best wishes Richard and Kimberley Lord

A comfortable and well equipped cottage with all the information needed to make the most of our stay. It was clear that the owners gave a lot of thought to what guests would need, both within the cottage and in terms of information to quickly and easily benefit from all there is on offer in this lovely part of the country.
