This wonderful barn conversion was completed in 2018, and the property benefits from full underfloor heating and is spread out over one level with just a couple of steps down to three of the four bedrooms. The spacious living/dining room makes a fabulous social area with a wood burner as a focal point - perfect for cosy winter months. During the summer, throw open the bi-folding doors onto the enclosed terrace, sit back and relax, and enjoy the outside space. Your four-legged friend is well catered for too with a dog wash station, treats and dog bowls all provided.

    "I never met the property owner, Anna, but was were shown around the Cartshed by Anna's daughter. The property was of a very high specification and I can't really fault much about the property itself. The only thing I would suggest is a larger fridge. We only stayed over for the weekend, so this wasn't much of an issue, but I can see how it might become problematic for two families staying over for a week or more. Nonetheless, a fantastic base from which to explore the surrounding area."

    "Exceptional accommodation! The Cartshed is very well equipped with everything being top quality. The property is very spacious with a lovely enclosed garden. The rural location makes it a very peaceful getaway with Eccleshall only a few miles away. The owners and family could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The additional unexpected extras they provided made the holiday for our family (and the dog who was well catered for). I highly recommend The Cartshed and can’t wait to go again."

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cartshed. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and enabled us all to feel at home; the owners are most helpful and went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay. Thank you to Mr and Mrs W, we would gladly recommend your place to others!"

    "I went with my friends to celebrate our friend's 50th birthday who is suffering from cancer, she had an amazing time, the cottage was spacious, lovely and cosy with the log burner on and at the same time having all the mod cons you need! Amazing views too! A special thanks to Anna who made us all feel very welcome and even left a bottle of wine chilling for us! We are already planning our next visit!!"

    "We had a wonderful long weekend at The Cartshed as a group of 8 friends. Everything we needed was there and the house and garden were both beautiful. Thank you to Anna and Alan for being such welcoming and thoughtful hosts, we can't wait to re-book!"

    "Brilliant.Very nice owners who have gone beyond expectations to make this a fantastic place to stay.Warm welcome with all the niceties."

    "A fantastic large 4 bed converted barn, absolutely everything that you need, lovely gas BBQ in the garden, plenty of sitting space, both inside and outside. The most comfortable beds, loved the master bedroom which opened up onto the garden... big french doors opening onto the patio area... we had a family get together and the location was perfect as we came from various parts of the country... great for the dogs.The welcome pack was really useful, especially after a long journey, as were the home made biscuits and the home made dog biscuits. The dog cushions and bowls were also a great touch. More than enough cutlery, plates, bowls, glasses, cups etc to cater for 8 people. Really well fitted out with top end appliances, cooker, dishwasher, freezer, TV etc. Having netflix was also a bonus. Anna, the owner, was lovely.Cannot speak highly enough of the Cartshed and we will definitely be returning."

    "We booked the Cartshed for a family get together and it was fantastic. We were 3 couples and 1 child and the layout and facilities were great for inclusivity and entertaining. The Cartshed is a new conversion and we were the first guests, the decor was lovely and very clean. The quality of the accommodation is excellent, the kitchen has everything you could need for cooking and beds really comfortable. The welcome pack of eggs, bread and Prosecco were a lovely touch. It sits on a working farm and whilst a little tricky to find it's definitely worth it once you are there. It's a little out of the way if you want to walk but if you're happy to drive the pubs in Eccleshall are great. Anna and Alan were really responsive, although we didn't need to contact them much."
