Region: A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
Town: Often referred to as England's finest Tudor town, Shrewsbury is set in a giant loop of the River Severn. Famous for its timber-framed black and white buildings as well as the ancient 'shuts' that connect them, Shrewsbury offers a superb selection of independent and high street shops along with plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants and pubs. In addition to being the birthplace of the renowned biologist Charles Darwin, the town is also the location of Shrewsbury Abbey - founded in 1083 and home to the fictional Brother Cadfael. The city's castle is an impressive sandstone building, set in beautiful gardens and grounds, whilst Quarry Park is home to the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show. Visitors can enjoy the National Trust's stately Attingham Park - an elegant 18th Century mansion - or Wroxeter Roman City, both of which are within easy driving distance.

A very good, well oppointed cottage, off the main road so very quiet. Close to Shrewsbury and a good pub, with excellent food, nearby. Only downside was that the Wi fi was a bit slow. Will definitely think about coming back in the future.
A relaxing place to be, wonderful views, not far from Shrewsbury

We really enjoyed our 4 day Christams break at Garden View Barn, almost in the middle of nowhere! The road was only a hundred metres away but the turn-in wasn't well signposted and we missed it and had to turn round.
The cottage was very well equipped and presented. However we did feel that some of the electronic equipment, eg microwave/cooker, TV and CD/ DVD, wa not easy to work. But we overcame this, with help, and had a great few days in this charming retreat with the Welsh hills to gaze at!
