The barn was comfortable and the owner welcoming and helpful.It is right under the Long Mynd with country walks from the door. A tiny stream runs along outside. Apart from expected and welcome country sounds such as sheep,cows,a cockerel and the odd tractor it was very peaceful indeed and a good base from which to enjoy local places of interest.
