Description

Nestled peacefully in the beautiful Shropshire countryside, Shire’s Loft offers an ideal relaxing break away.

Surrounded by open fields yet just 1 mile from Whitchurch, Shire’s Loft is the perfect base for couples seeking a romantic break in a rural location but is still within easy walking distance to pubs and restaurants. Situated in the grounds of the owner’s home, which was once a working farm, the former shire horse stables have been converted into a comfortable holiday home. The owners have kept as many original features as possible but have added additional comforts one expects, such as underfloor heating, wi-fi, ensuite shower room and a comfortable bedroom with a free standing, roll top bath. Outside, guests are welcome to enjoy the 2 acres of gardens and orchard. The delightful market town of Whitchurch, famous for being ‘home of the tower clocks’ with buildings dating from Tudor, Georgian and Medieval time, offers a great selection of shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants. Ideal for those who love the great outdoors there are lots of walks in the area including the Sandstone Trail as well as walks around Dearnford Lake, Brown Moss, Greenfields Nature Reserve and Whitchurch Waterways Country Park. Whilst there is plenty to see and do in the immediate area, Shire’s Loft is also a great touring base and is well located for exploring Shropshire, Cheshire and North Wales. Shrewsbury, Wrexham and Chester are all within a 30-minute drive. Shrewsbury with its medieval architecture and riverside walks is 21 miles away and the historical city of Chester with its excellent shopping, famous racecourse and the popular attraction of Chester Zoo is 22 miles. Other places of interest, within easy driving distance, include Blue Planet Aquarium 26 miles, Hawkstone Follies 8 miles, Ironbridge 29 miles and Delamere Forest 25 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    A delightful cottage near to the owners house. Made to feel very welcome with Flowers and a welcome tray. February weather chilly but the cottage was really warm and cosy. The bed was very comfortable and we had everything we needed for our stay. About a mile out of Whitchurch but in a central position for exploring. We visited five National Trust properties during our weeks stay, including two in Wales. Chester, with it’s amazing black and white buildings, was in easy distance with a convenient park & ride.

    I stayed here with my boyfriend from 22-29 Dec 2017. It was a perfect Christmas break. Fiona and Sam were so welcoming, we had a lovely little hamper of goodies when we arrived, followed by some delicious home made mince pies. They made us both feel very welcome over the Christmas period. If you are looking for a great place to explore Shropshire/Cheshire and even North Wales, then this is the place.

    A lovely get away for both of us. It was a great base for the walks and hikes we wanted to do. We have never stayed in a cleaner property.

    Comfortable, on the whole ( sofa a bit too low when viewing TV so we got a sore neck- we need to be a bit taller!) Hot water and warmth provided, with lots of fresh air, if needed. Had good nights sleep in comfortable bed and relaxing bath, with use of powerful shower. Was well equipped with the use of a lovely garden/patio area. (Plums were juicy and sweet!). Could hear the traffic from nearby road but could also hear the cattle lowing and was not a problem. We had a lovely relaxing weekend and would definitely recommend Shire's Loft to others.

    We stayed at Shires Loft whilst helping my daughter move house. It was the perfect place to relax after a hard day. We will return there very soon so we can really enjoy it.

    Cosy, clean and very comfortable. The underfloor heating is really good. The bed is very comfortable. The kitchen has a fabulous tap! A good place for visiting Chester, Shrewsbury and Llangollen.
