The Longbarn holiday cottage is a beautifully converted barn on a working farm, situated in the rural hamlet of Shelve near Church Stretton, Welshpool and Shrewsbury in Shropshire. Owner Angela Wyke provides the perfect base for up to 5 self-catering guests to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB); walking opportunities are many and varied, from the nearby hilly range of the Stiperstones to gentle strolls along country lanes, with local pubs en route.
The Longbarn has original beams throughout, a spacious galley kitchen, 3 restful bedrooms and 2 comfortable settees - most important to curl up, relax and savour views of the Shropshire Hills with a glass of wine in hand. Weekend breaks are available as well as weekly stays.
Shropshire's historic county town of Shrewsbury is just half an hour away, ideal for exploring the birthplace of Charles Darwin and over 600 listed buildings, many of which are black and white timber framed. The cobbled streets are home to a collection of independent shops, cafés and restaurants.
The village of Shelve itself has a lovely Church; the second highest in Shropshire. It once housed Cromwell's army and horses. Now, the animals you'll find here at 2 The Longbarn include cows and sheep, although horse riding is available in nearby Hope. You can watch the cows being milked or get involved at lambing time if you so wish. Guests also have exclusive use of a private fishing pool to fish for coarse fish, wild carp, tench or roach.
