Grade II listed Evenwood Gables was once an old retired and unloved cow barn and is one of three stunning barn conversions on a small farm development. Now lovingly and tastefully restored, retaining many of its original period features, including exposed beams and stonework. With panoramic views of the Shropshire Hills; wonderful local walks; and within striking distance of historic Shrewsbury and the River Severn, Evenwood Gables is a fabulous base for couples or families to discover all that Shropshire has to offer.
Character seamlessly blends in with modern touches throughout this barn. Stunning floor to ceiling beams divide the living and dining area to create a calm and relaxing space to unwind and entertain. A wood burning stove is central to the room, creating a cosy warm welcome on those cooler days. High beamed ceilings, bi-folding doors and well positioned windows allow light to flood through the barn, and the underfloor heating throughout ensures this single-storey conversion is ideal throughout the seasons. The well-equipped kitchen is fully fitted with integrated appliances and a separate utility room houses the washer/dryer and free-standing fridge freezer. Both bedrooms enjoy their own en-suite, the master bedroom with a king-size leather sleigh bed and a beautiful slipper bath in the en-suite. Bedroom two has the flexibility of either twin single beds, or a super-king size bed, and an en-suite shower room.
Outside, the superb views can be enjoyed from the rear terrace with garden furniture, where you can fire up the barbecue provided and enjoy a summer's day alfresco lunch.
Nearby Shrewsbury, the county town, is an historic and vibrant market town with a mediaeval castle and Tudor streets full of excellent eateries and shopping. Built on a hill, the River Severn curls around it like a moat. The picturesque surrounding villages of Church Stretton, Much Wenlock and Cardington boast more excellent eating out options.

We really enjoyed our stay at Evenwood Gables. The property is stylish and comfortable, making us feel at home as soon as we arrived. Perfect for a stay with my elderly mother with the two bedrooms (both en-suite) and the property being virtually on one level (a couple of steps, but easily managed by my mum). The welcome hamper was amazing! A real surprise and it was enjoyed by all three of us. Peaceful location with a lovely garden enjoying the afternoon sun. Highly recommend staying here. Katrina was extremely helpful and she and Gavin have done an amazing job with the renovations. Thank you also for posting the forgotten toothbrush to us 😊
A really nice, well-equipped cottage. Quietly situated in deepest Shropshire. Lovely view over fields up to the woods and the 'Sham Castle' folly. A very generous welcome hamper was waiting for us, and the kitchen was very well equipped. We were there in September, so didn't need the heating on but there's lots of control plus an inviting log-burner. Many roads around the property are quite narrow, but there are plenty of passing places so you soon get used to it.
What a stunning barn … from the moment we arrived, we knew we were going to have a wonderful week. The welcome from our hosts, and welcome hamper were simply incredible, and attention to detail in the barn is just perfect. It was the perfect getaway we needed, and we will definitely be going back … can’t wait! Thank you Katrina and Gavin for sharing your beautiful barn x
