Description

This superb detached barn offers spacious living accommodation and entertainment space, ideal for larger families or groups of friends.

Dating back to the 17th century, these barn conversions are set on a 100-acre, family-run working arable and livestock farm, just a few miles from Whitchurch. They share a multi-sports court for mini tennis, badminton and football with other barns on site, as well as a fantastic indoor heated swimming pool. The shared swimming pool is available for exclusive use for each barn and booking slots are available throughout the day, booked on your arrival. The swimming pool is open all year round but opening times may vary. A woodland picnic area lies a short walk away from your barns and there is a fantastic enclosed toddler play area available for children under 6 years. Walkers can explore the Shropshire Union Canal, just 5 minutes away, and the Shropshire Way footpath runs through the farm, while coarse fishing is less than 5 miles and horse riding 1½ miles away. For cyclists, the Mercian Cycle Path runs past the farm. Whilst the barns enjoy a peaceful rural setting, they are still very close to amenities. Whitchurch is approximately 2½ miles away, the delightful market town has many splendid buildings from medieval, Tudor and Georgian times, all dominated by St. Alkmund’s Church. Internationally renowned for its clock production dating back to the 1650s, Whitchurch is known as ’the Home of Tower Clocks’, and a fine example can be seen on one of the barns. There are many excellent shops, pubs and restaurants in the town which is perfectly placed for touring all of Shropshire, North Wales and Cheshire. Attractions close by include Ellesmere with its beautiful lakes, 11 miles, a variety of National Trust mansions and gardens, and the historical city of Chester with its excellent shopping and famous races, 25 miles, with the Blue Planet Aquarium close by. Chester Zoo, as seen on TV’s ’Secret Life of a Zoo’, is only 30 minutes away and is one of Europe’s largest zoos, helping endangered animals from all over the world. Other places of interest include Hawkstone Follies, Cheshire Ice Cream Farm, RAF Cosford, Fenn’s and Whixall Mosses, and the incredible Ironbridge Gorge. For great shopping, there is Shrewsbury with its medieval architecture and riverside walks, and Telford with its indoor shopping centre. Shop and restaurant 2 miles, pub approx 1 mile. These properties are two of five, which share a courtyard.

    This is our second visit to this group of Barns need I say more. Buttercups Haybarn was lovely set in beautiful Shropshire countryside. The converted barn was extremely spacious and full of personal touches. We took our bikes and went for some lovely cycle ride which were very well signed. The site has an indoor bike store. The weather was hot during our stay and the pool was just prefect to relax in. We have already booked again for 2019 as last time we missed out on our selected dates.

    I booked this for my husbands 70th birthday. We had a wonderful stay with my children and grandchildren all enjoying themselves. The children loved the swimming pool and the Toddler area was perfect with lots of toys to amuse the little ones. We love walking and so walked along the canal which was lovely. Barn was clean and very spacious and relaxing, we had a lovely time celebrating together. Definitely recommend
