The Byre is a recently converted 18th C barn halfway between Ludlow and Church Stretton. Surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with views up to 20 miles along Wenlock Edge, Clee Hill and towards Ludlow, our 18th C stone and wood framed barn is a peaceful countryside haven yet only a mile from the nearest town. The one double bedroom accommodates 2 adults plus baby and a child up to approximately 12 years at no extra charge. Near to the Spa town of Church Stretton, (known as Little Switzerland) and Ludlow (regarded by many as the finest Medieval town in Britain) The Byre is ideally situated for touring Shropshire and the Welsh Marches border area with its wealth of ancient castles and churches. Rated 4 Stars by Visit Britain and Excellent by TripAdvisor, it features underfloor...The Byre is a recently converted 18th C barn halfway between Ludlow and Church Stretton.

Rated 4 Stars by Visit Britain and Excellent by TripAdvisor, it features underfloor heating, woollen carpeted bedrooms and natural slate floors combined with original oak beams and high ceilings for that authentic country atmosphere. Guests love our warm welcome of home made cakes, beverages with fresh milk and flowers from the cottage garden.. A gourmet meal delivered by Van Doesberg's Deli can await your arrival and tempt your palate on any other day of your stay with us. Dining out is one of the prime attractions of this part of South Shropshire with restaurants from top award winners to carveries and quaint English tea shops. The award winning Ludlow Food Centre is nearby - Shropshire's answer to Fortnum & Mason's - where you can watch much of the fine food being prepared on site from local farms and gardens. A good range of takeaways a supermarket, shops, bank and petrol stations are found in Craven Arms just one mile away. Ironbridge World Heritage site with the world's first iron bridge and ten museums is a 30 minute drive away and our visitors are eligible for reduced entry fees to any of the museums during their stay.. The BBCtv Victorian Farm at Acton Scott is within easy reach. The modern Olympics originated in the picturesque small town of Much Wenlock where an annual Olympiad is still held each summer. The award winning Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre and renowned Stokesay Castle are within easy walking distance from The Byre. Relax in our pretty cottage garden with its two patios, Coalbrookdale furniture and barbecue and enjoy wonderful walks or cycle rides from right outside the gates. Once you have stayed at Highgrove you will surely want to return soon as so many of our visitors do. More

Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for pointing out the shower. As we don't use it ourselves we rely on guests to alert us. Its probably caused by lime in the water around here. Will check it out.

About the neighbourhood
Within a few minutes drive are Cardingmill Valley and Church Stretton, known as Little Switzerland and Ludlow, reputed by many to be the finest medieval town in England.
