This semi-detached, barn conversion for 2 people is set on a working farm at the foot of the Long Mynd hills near to the village of Wentnor in Shropshire and is ideal to explore the nearby towns of Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth and Ironbridge. The Byre has been tastefully converted to offer accommodation for 2 people; a classic, romantic retreat. Exposed beams and a four-poster bed help it retain much of its original charm and there is also a small garden from which you can enjoy the stunning scenery or indulge in a spot of al fresco dining. There is parking for up to 2 cars, although the best way to get the most from this area is on foot.

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: The village of Wentnor lies on a ridge to the west of the Long Mynd, with good views in all directions. It is an attractive village, situated on a location that can be traced back to Saxon times. The church of St. Michael and All Angels is at one end of theridge, and there are spectacular views to be had from there, looking towards the west from the churchyard. Carved into an outside wall of the church is an inverted 'face'. Inside is a tombstone known as the âHurricane Tombstone'; this is in memory of a family who lost their lives in the nearby hamlet of Asterton during a hurricane in 1772. Wetnor is also situated close to many other historic Shropshire attractions. The Shropshire Hills are littered with Roman and Iron Age settlements, perfect destinations for those who want to mix a bit of history with a scenic walk. Church Stretton is only a few miles away and offers a beautiful example of a modern medieval village. With outdoor pursuits, such as fishing and mountain-biking, in abundance, Wentnor is a haven for those looking to get away from it all.

We loved the Byre. It was spacious and comfortable with a great kitchen. The walks straight from the door were great and we also enjoyed walking to the pub. It was well located for many of Shropshire's sights and extremely peaceful.

This cottage was by far the best holiday rental we have experienced. The location, looking up at The Long Mynd, was perfect, the walking excellent and the local pub great! We shall hope to return for more holidays in The Byre.

Excellent welcome pack. Very clean and well furnished house. Great position with fabulous views. Good places to visit and quiet roads. A very chilled out week! Can't think of anything we didn't like.
Away from it all !

A bit off the beaten track but well worth the effort to get there. Right next to the The Shropshire Way so with immediate access to some stunning walks and scenery. A compact holiday house that was comfortable and well equipped with everything needed for a holiday break.
