This superb, detached barn conversion is one of those uniquely rare properties that can accommodate the larger of family parties in true comfort and style! Its spacious living rooms, generous en-suite bedrooms (some of which suit partially handicapped guests), and wealth of extra facilities will delight guests, and the property retains many character beams, with fine joinery and decor. There are separate stairs to 2 ’wings’, so plenty of room to spread out. An ideal base for a year-round holiday, with fine walks to Stokesay Castle, a short drive to Wenlock Edge and Long Mynd, and about half an hour from Ironbridge museums. Offa’s Dyke and Clun are nearby. The village of Craven Arms has some charming and historic houses, including a round house, thought to be a recognisable rest house for pilgrim’s travelling between Wigmore and Shrewsbury Abbeys. Knighton, Bishops Castle, medieval Ludlow, home to nearly 500 listed buildings are within easy reach. There is half a mile of coarse fishing within walking distance. Shops, pubs and restaurants ¾ mile.

    Lots of space to accommodate a big family gathering. A bit shabby but it had everything we needed.

    Masses of space and comfortable lounges. Lots of kitchen equipment. Could do with a bit of sprucing up and thorough cleaning. For the price, a lot of house!

    The place was not clean when we landed up there late in the afternoon. There were three dead bats that we found along with what seemed like bat droppings in one of the bedrooms. The same bedroom had a musty smell. The plates and cutlery were not all clean and we had to put it through a dishwasher before first use. We had to continue at the property owing to the fact that we gathered there from different locations and to look for another property would have been impractical at that moment. There is a working yard behind the house. While there was no disturbance from that place during our two night stay, it was definitely not an idyllic sight. There are plenty of rooms for socialising by different age groups. We cut short our visit by a night. If the place were maintained clean, it would have been great. Not happy with the experience, I'm afraid.

    We spent a fantastic holiday at Halford Big Barn. Everything was working perfectly and the house has plenty of space both indoor and out. We had to call on our landlords once and it was no problem at all. 10/10

    Perfect for a large family get together - we stayed in joint celebration of a milestone 60th birthday for my husband and our twin daughters' birthdays. Halfords Big Barn ticked all our boxes, with plenty of room for all, we never felt "cramped" or "squashed" and were especially impressed with the huge dining room table and sufficient chairs (and room) for all. Well equipped, very homely and comfortable. Yes, there were a few cobwebs and not every surface was spotlessly clean, but overall we were more than satisfied with our stay and had a fabulous time.

    Whilst the property was everything we wanted, I was very upset that the owner let herself into the property when we were out and was snooping around. This did stop when I complained to the husband but it slightly soured the whole experience.

    We had a excellent week. The cottage was a ideal size. It’s definitely a property where a large group can spread out.

    We booked the Halford Big Barn for an 80th birthday with friends and family. The house was in a great location, was certainly big enough for 11 adults and 5 children. It was safe enough for the children to play outside and explore.
