    Walkers can explore the Shropshire Union Canal, just 5 minutes away, and the Shropshire Way footpath runs through the farm, while coarse fishing is less than 5 miles and horse riding 1½ miles away. For cyclists, the Mercian Cycle Path runs past the farm. Whilst the barns enjoy a peaceful rural setting, they are still very close to amenities. Whitchurch is approximately 2½ miles away, the delightful market town has many splendid buildings from medieval, Tudor and Georgian times, all dominated by St. Alkmund’s Church. Internationally renowned for its clock production dating back to the 1650s, Whitchurch is known as ’the Home of Tower Clocks’, and a fine example can be seen on one of the barns. There are many excellent shops, pubs and restaurants in the town which is perfectly placed for touring all of Shropshire, North Wales and Cheshire.

    Attractions close by include Ellesmere with its beautiful lakes, 11 miles, a variety of National Trust mansions and gardens, and the historical city of Chester with its excellent shopping and famous races, 25 miles, with the Blue Planet Aquarium close by. Chester Zoo, as seen on TV’s ’Secret Life of a Zoo’, is only 30 minutes away and is one of Europe’s largest zoos, helping endangered animals from all over the world. Other places of interest include Hawkstone Follies, Cheshire Ice Cream Farm, RAF Cosford, Fenn’s and Whixall Mosses, and the incredible Ironbridge Gorge. For great shopping there is Shrewsbury, with its medieval architecture and riverside walks, and Cheshire Oaks, with its amazing shopping centre. Shop and restaurant 2 miles, pub approx 1 mile.

    "Good location , ideal for a family with small children. Pool was fantastic and avaliable when we wanted to use it ."

    "Well equipped, nice owners will to help, plenty of items that you would expect to pay extra for with in the mill, worth a stay for any one."

    "We stayed in this delightful cottage a few weeks ago. The wood burner in the sitting room made it feel very cosy. It had everything we needed for our short break, the kitchen was very well equipped. Towels were supplied and there were some Childrens toys too, which was very useful. The pool was open (in March) and the family enjoyed this greatly. The WIFI was surprising good and allowed us to use our Fire stick. The owners recommended Chester Zoo, which we visited and had a wonderful day."

    "Was a lovely relaxing stay with some lovely walks on its doorstep or a short drive away. Was great to have a pool that could be booked out to each cottage. It is slightly further from the nearest pub than what is currently described and because of its location down a narrow country lane, its not really in walking distance in the evening as too dangerous. The nearest pub doesn't serve food which would be useful to know in advance. Could do with a pizza slicer in the cottage."

    "A charming converted barn it was warm and comfortable for my family group. It had everything my group needed. The swimming pool was warm and spotlessly clean, as was the barn itself. The weather was truly kind and we were able to use the sports area and outdoor toddler area. I would recommend a visit to Whitchurch the local market town."

    "My Family had a winter break in this lovely warm cosy cottage. The log burning stove made it extra special. The swimming pool was well used by my family and a real treat in the cold weather. Owners very helpful and friendly. Would recommend."
