There is a well-stocked, fitted kitchen with breakfast bar as well as a dining table and benches, a wet room with shower and under floor heating, large basin and toilet, a double sofa bed, corner sofa, smart T.V with FreeSat, NetFlicks and a PlayStation3 in the sitting area and good books, board games, extra bl...Perfect rural getaway for 2-4 right on the Shropshire Way in the Shropshire Hills designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This Shippen is a detached, light, spacious, open-plan barn conversion with contemporary styling and an oak and glass gable overlooking the fabulous, unspoilt Linley valley with great walks. The property had been carefully renovated with exposed beams, excellent insulation, central heating, a wood burning stove, oak flooring and stylish, modern interior.

There are double doors onto large decking area with BBQ and outside seating. Guest parking directly outside the barn with flag stone entrance. The Shippen is very rural, surrounded by beautiful countryside with stunning views, miles and miles of fields and woodland walks and star-filled night skies and a brook for paddling at the bottom of the valley. Steeped in peace and quiet, it’s located within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with Sites of Special Scientific Interest very close by. It’s ideal for walkers, cyclists, nature lovers and kite flyers! The Shropshire Way runs alongside the main house. The Stiperstones and the Long Mynd are just a few minutes’ drive away. There are lots of pretty villages and market towns, castles, woodland and hills to explore. The area is great for birdwatching, romantic walks or more challenging hill walking, cycling, riding, golfing, hang gliding, good food, local music, book and arts festivals, houses and gardens. It’s the perfect location for a rural getaway in so many ways. The county town of Shrewsbury on the banks of the river Severn is just a 25 minute drive away; much loved for its fine buildings, cobbled streets, museums, restaurants, and independent and high-street shops. Ludlow, famed for its castle, food fair, Michelin starred restaurants and beautiful architecture is a 40 minute drive away, and the drive passes medieval Stokesay Castle. A little further afield are the famous gardens at Powys Castle and The Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site, and for book-lovers Hay-on-Wye famed for its antique and book shops is about an hour's drive away and hosts a great literary festival every year. Come prepared with food essentials for self-catering. Eat out nearby at The Bridges Inn or visit the market towns of Shrewsbury, Church Stretton or Bishop's Castle with their attractive streets, cafes, museums, breweries and arts and antiques. .... all an easy drive away... as is a large, well-stocked whole food store. The area also has ruined and working castles to explore, Victorian farming museums, gastronomic delights in Ludlow and fantastic independent shopping in Shrewsbury.More

The owners aim to give guests privacy whilst also being available to answer any questions, so please do ask if there's anything you need, they’re happy to help where they can. They're even happy to pick you up from the local pub if they’re around!
