The cottage is in the middle of nowhere but with superb views. It is cosy and comfortable for two adults but would be cramped with 4 as the living space and kitchen are small. When we stayed there was nobody permanently in the cottages either side but I suspect if there had been there might have been some disturbance of noise. The approach road is single track but perfectly navigable. There is only one parking space allotted. There is excellent walking right from the cottage and Oswestry (a lovely market town) only 4 miles away where you can get everything you need. An excellent base for visiting the area.

Gorgeous cottage with amazing views. Perfect base for a family getaway with lots to see and do in the vicinity. The pictures don’t do it justice! My husband and I, our 3 month old baby and 9 year old daughter and her friend had a fabulous week here. Plenty of space for us all. The place was lovely and clean and the beds super comfy. The single track lane that others have commented on is fine for confident drivers. We have a large 4 wheel drive and had no problem. The views from the shared garden are amazing with lovely walks to be had on your doorstep. The owners and neighbours were very welcoming and friendly! We’ll definitely be going back!

We really had an enjoyable stay at Oak Barn Cottage and used it as a base for visits to Oswestry and Shrewsbury. We also enjoyed several walks along the many footpaths leading from the cottage. A very enjoyable Sunday lunch was obtained at The Royal Oak which is within easy walking distance (2 miles).
