“Great stay in a great location”
Reviewed 2 July 2017 for a stay in May 2017

In May we were lucky enough to stay in the Long Barn cottage in Lower Day House, a few miles away from Church Stretton. This proved to be an excellent base for exploration of the surrounding area. Margaret and Jim, friendly and helpful hosts, have created two comfortable and appealing cottage rentals, with Jim doing much of the work himself, retaining many of the original features of the original building, as you will see by the beamed ceilings in the photographs.. Ours--the Long Barn--was not only comfortable and well-equipped, but also amazingly spacious. There were only the two of us, but the cottage would be perfect for a family too. Sadly the weather was not particularly well behaved while we were there, with only one occasion when we were able to sit on the lovely private patio overlooking the surrounding countryside at the back of the cottage. Communications with Margaret prior to our arrival were warm and easy. Highly recommended.

“Lovely!”
Reviewed 22 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a really nice few days stay in the Long Barn. It's a beautiful area, with lots of walks and lovely views, and the house is really nice - very well equipped and a real home from home. It's in an incredibly peaceful spot.
And Margaret and Jim are excellent hosts. Couldn't have been better!

We have stayed in many holiday cottages and this was without a doubt one of the best, for many reasons. The cottage was spacious yet cosy, well equipped, clean, and a pleasure to stay in. We stayed for 4 nights. We will definitely and recommend to friends and family. We were surprised how much there was to visit in Ironbridge bought a Passport ticket for £20 (OAP) great value and can still use for 12 months. The owners Margaret and Jim where very helpful.

The barn was a delight - very comfortable, warm and well-equipped. The location is superb with endless countryside views and numerous walks in the area. Church Stretton and Much Wenlock are perfect towns with delis, coffee houses and out of the ordinary shops. We will be visiting again and it was a great start to the new year.
