“Beautiful property, lovely location”
Reviewed 9 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We celebrated mine and my sisters 40th birthday at the barn & had a weekend to remember!
The barn itself is amazing, the decor is beautiful, the property is impeccably clean. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. Tracy even left us a delicious birthday cake and fab 40th balloons, such a lovely gesture.
This is a perfect setting for any occasion, having arrived home today I am thinking of occasions to go back!

We're just happy you and your friends and family enjoyed themselves :) (Milo's missing Chewie though so if you do visit again please bring him too.) Sorry the chickens weren't laying much in the cold weather because we would've invited the children to help with egg collecting.

“Stunning property, highly recommended!”
Reviewed 24 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed at Cuckoocroft Barn for a weekend university-friends reunion, and it was everything we could have hoped for. Extremely clean, nicely furnished with plenty of space for us. Plenty of nice walks in the rural setting, whilst being close enough to Shrewsbury for us to get taxis for a night out. Couldn't have been better!

“School Reunion, Large Group - Plenty of Space”
Reviewed 18 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We are a group of Friends (with children and toddler) who stayed here 3 nights in February 2016 for a School Reunion.

Cuckoo Croft Barn was a fantastic venue. The place is clean, spacious and very well maintained.

With plenty to do in the surrounding area it is a great location for getting out and about. However should you wish to stay indoors and relax the Barn allows this as well. Based on the size of the group we never felt cramped or in each others way. The openness was a real bonus for us.

I had been in contact with the owners before our stay and must commend them on their helpfulness and prompt replies.

Our only regret was we did not book a longer break.

As a group we have been doing breaks like this around the UK for 8 years and would rate Cuckoo Croft Barn as one of the best places we have stayed.

“Wonderful place for a family get together”
Reviewed 15 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Stayed here for two weeks with a large extended family coming from all over the UK and some from Australia!! It goes without saying (see every other review for people who are saying it!) that the accommodation is of excellent quality and really is just as good as it looks. However, what made it really special for us were the little details. From the moment we arrived Nigel and Tracy made us feel incredibly welcome, leaving wine and chocolate for our arrival. They'd also decorated the barn for Christmas for us which meant that we walked into an incredibly exciting space. I have to thank Tracy in particular for helping my two and four year old niece and nephew feed the cows, they really enjoyed it and kept wanting to go and see the animals!
A really special moment for the kids on Christmas Day was also created by Nigel and Tracy; they very kindly offered to let us take the eggs from their hens while they were away over Christmas and gave us Christmas tree decorations with the kids names on to hide in the hen house for them to find. We took them down on Christmas morning and I wish I could include their reaction to finding them in this review; they were almost more excited that the chickens had given them a present than they were about Santa having come.

My only criticism (and I must emphasise how minor it is in the context) is that the knives were a little blunt; might be worth including a steel in the kitchen so that they can be sharpened? However, the kitchen is well appointed and a cook's dream (I made Christmas dinner for 10 and it was the most relaxed I've ever been!) This was a wonderful property which worked perfectly for a large number of people to get together and have fun, but what's even better is the attention paid by the owners to their guests having a perfect time.

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write the review, we do appreciate it.
We are just happy that you enjoyed the company of your family for the fortnight that you were with us.
Thank you also for pointing out the blunt knives, they have been sharpened, and a steel is now in the draw for future guests.

“Long weekend as base for cycling event”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The barn was a wonderful base for our trip to Shrewsbury for the cycle cross national champs. The barn is just as it looks in the photo's, which sounds mad, but so many holiday cottages are tarted up to look great. This barn was beautifully appointed in every detail. Comfortable and warm, spacious and contemporary. It was well worth the price and we would love to come back and explore the area. Thanks.
