Description

Stoke St Milborough nestles between Clee Hill and Brown Clee Hills, Ludlow is close by, and Secret Hills Discovery Centre for a day out.

Set on a working farm, this detached stone barn is located just 6 miles from historic Ludlow and lies on the edge of the village of Stoke St Milborough, which nestles between the Clee Hill and the Brown Clee Hills in south Shropshire, in an AONB. Stoke Court farm Barn is decorated and furnished to a high standard, whilst retaining many original features including beams and stable walls. It offers beautiful family accommodation with additional faciities for disabled guests, and makes an excellent holiday base for exploring the local area.
The 200-acre farm is a working beef and sheep farm, and within the grounds of the holiday barn is a newly discovered 17th-century formal garden with its prospect viewing mound. There is also a Sensory Garden to stimulate sound, sight, touch and smell. The latter has been developed in association with DEFRA.
Nearby, historic Ludlow provides a wealth of interest for any visitor. John Betjeman described it as ‘the loveliest town in England’. Country Life also paid tribute, calling it ‘the most vibrant small town in the country’. It has lively markets, food fairs and speciality shops. There are many Michelin restaurants and Ludlow has rightly become known as the gastronomic capital of Shropshire. The Ludlow Marches Food and Drink Festival is held every September. The town boasts over 500 listed buildings, mostly Georgian or half-timbered houses as well as a castle, once the home of kings, now a centre for festivals, events and open-air theatre performances.
An unusual day out can be enjoyed at the Secret Hills Discovery Centre, which traces the geological history of the Shropshire Hills, and is housed in an unusual turf-roofed building designed to echo the hill forts found in the surrounding countryside. A simulated hot air balloon flight over the Wrekin in the north to the Stiperstones in the south forms the central attraction of the Centre. A good day out can also be had at the Acton Scott working farm and musuem. Leominster, Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth, Ironbridge and mid-Wales are all within easy driving distance. Fishing, walking, horse riding are all available and Ludlow golf course incorporates the Ludlow National Hunt Racecourse. Shop 6 miles.

    Excellent place for a large family gathering, and well suited for a family member with disabilities.

    The place was fantastic and the owners were really nice. They helped us to organised everything with all the kids. Very child friendly place and a bathroom completely equipped for elderly and disable. The cottage was also really clean and comfortable. I will definitely recommend it!

    Overall the barn was lovely. We moved the armchairs around the fire to make it cosier in the evenings once the children were in bed. The kitchen was on the small side for a large party but if cooking is not important to you then it was OK. The other small grouch was the main fridge was small but there was another small fridge in the porch area so that helped a bit. Trying to keep the mud out of the house was tricky as the area by the cars was very muddy. All minor snags that didn't really detract from the overall charm of the place. The owner was a charming lady who was very happy to help with any suggestions for local visits.

    My family consisting of 11 adults and 3 children stayed here in August 2015. We were grateful to book the cottage at very short notice as we had previously planned a camping weekend but the weather was nothing short of dreadful. Margaret and her family made us feel very welcome and comfortable from the moment we arrived. The farm barn was delightful - we were very comfortable and the big table(s) in the dining room meant we could all eat together. The fact that the barn is on a working farm is brilliant. There was lots of space for the children to run around and they were fascinated by the animals and the friendly dog. 2 nights in the countryside was a joy - and a million times better than camping in the rain! Would I recommend? Definitely!
