Town: The small village of Cockshutt is surrounded by beautiful Shropshire countryside and has a pub, village hall, primary school and a parish church. Just five miles away is the pretty market town of Ellesmere, which offers Tudor, Georgian and Victorian buildings, a lovely church and a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, and is surrounded by its famous meres. Twelve miles south of Cockshutt is the county town of Shrewsbury, and there's plenty of other attractions, towns and villages within reach.

Beautiful holiday cottage
We had a fantastic week at The Barn, a lovely holiday home with so much space.” The large garden to the front and side of the property was a pleasant surprise and lovely to sit in with a glass of wine while the ducks from the pond waddled by. Jane had left us cakes and provisions for a cup of tea which was just what we needed when we arrived. Lovely walks around the surrounding area and Ellesmere which was a short drive away had some lovely pubs. We had a lovely meal in the Red Lion pub which held a quiz on the Sunday night, this was great fun and they even made sandwiches for the people playing the quiz who were not having a meal. The barn was spotlessly clean and felt like a home away from home, we certainly didn’t want to leave at the end of the week. I would definitely recommend and would like to return in the future.

Perfect
My family and I stayed here for a week to celebrate my 60th birthday. There were 6 children and 6 adults and we had plenty of room. The pictures dont really show how spacious it is. The children loved the big downstairs bedroom which had bunk beds and 2 singles in. The master bedroom is amazing huge bed very comfy. The living room has reclining arm chairs and the whole barn is very comfortable, child friendly and home from home. There is a lovely outside space with ponds ducks and fishing if you have the weather. Jane was on hand to see if we needed anything. Highly recommend and very reasonable. We would definitely return as a family.

Loved it!!!
First of its huge. We were two families one of 8 the other of 4 and the Barn was massive. We were able to give the kids theIR own bedrooms upstairs and Lounge come bedroom downstairs that has a TV etc in it, as well as having our own adult lounge. The kitchen was well laid out roomy and well stocked even had an Aga cooker! The dinner seating was good with the kids siting at the 8 seater table in the kitchen and the adults eating at the dinning table in the adult area!! I have never been in a property with so many toilets, showers etc so there were no problems there either. Having a large family this ticked all the boxes and the children loved here. There is also a huge lawn area outside for the kids to play on. We were also surprised how much there was to do in the wider area of Shropshire with Liverpool to the north, wales to the west and Stafford shire and Drayton Manor kids theme park to the East. Plenty of city sites to see as well as walking and historic sites in Shropshire. We will have to come back again and again to do everything! Jane and Andrew were very helpful and chatty and welcoming. Its a great place really loved it and would have stayed longer if the option was there. Idea for large families or groups. Would defo recommend!!

We are absolutely over the moon that you had a wonderful holiday at The Barn, thank you for taking the time to tell us about it. It sounds like it was the perfect place for all the family, having all of that room so that children and adults could have their own space - fabulous! We certainly hope you return to enjoy the property and finish exploring the area very soon!
