The Granary

The Granary epitomises luxury charm. The semi-detached barn conversion in Stapleton retains a wealth of character amidst its ultra-modern furnishings and possesses countless traditional details as well as an open fire.

Set on a working farm in the Shropshire region, the luxury farm cottage in Shropshire comprises one double bedroom with four-poster bed, walk-in wardrobe and en-suite with shower, basin and WC.

The ground-floor twin and the ground-floor single also possess the rural charm and character that permeates this entire cottage.

The second bathroom contains a bath with shower over, basin and WC and there is also a shared washing machine and tumble dryer available.

Exposed beams, stone and tiles bless the well-equipped kitchen and dining area with charm, which carries through to the spacious sitting room with its wood-burner stove. Relax with the TV with digital box, DVD, CD/radio – or listen to the crackle of the fire.

Central heating makes The Granary attractive at any time of the year, and guests are also provided with WiFi, amenities for young children and off-road parking.

Children can play for hours in the large games room which includes a table tennis table, snooker table and many other games. Meals can be taken alfresco in the small front patio or the small rear walled area with furniture.

The pet-friendly property lies just one mile from shops and a pub and within a day’s drive of sites such as the market town of Church Stretton, the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm and the region which is affectionately known as Little Switzerland.

Reviews

First Class accommodation

We stayed at the Granary for a week in September, along with my brother-in-law and his wife.
This place definitely has the 'Wow' factor! As you enter the property you walk straight into the lounge, complete with wood burning stove, then through a door into a very well equiped kitchen. Through another door into the hall, with stairs leading up to the first floor, and two bedrooms and a bathroom. Upstairs you'll find a games room complete with pool/snooker table, then up a few steps into the master bedroom. This is a lovely room with Velux windows, giving lots of light, an en suit shower room tucked under the beams, and a walk in wardrobe.
We felt at home here right away, especially when the evenings came and we lit the wood burner...very cosy!
The Granary is well situated for visiting the local area. We had a brilliant day at the Victorian Farm at Ironbridge, followed by the Coalport Museum, the Tar tunnel, and the pipe factory. Shrewsbury market gave us another good day out, as did Church Stretton, with it's fabulous antique Store. We rounded the week off with a day at the Ludlow Food Festival. Well worth a visit.
All in all a very comfortable place to stay...home from home with the added extras of the local area thrown in.

Relaxing Stay

Much better than the brochure! Very well equipped, comfortable and homely feel to this property and lots of space. Five of us and a dog had a very relaxing stay here, the log burner was a bonus and my 9 year old son enjoyed playing pool. There are lots of walks across farmland from the cottage and ideally placed for a day trip to Shrewsbury and walks along the Long Mynd and trips to Much Wenlock, Ludlow and Church Stretton. We have already booked again for next year!

Lovely cottage, but with lots of bits and pieces missing!

Our thoughts were passed onto the owners!
It was a beautiful cottage, but not as convenient as we had expected. Lots of 'bits' were missing, like no towel rails in main bathroom. We found it difficult walking our small dog, as the lanes are quite busy, and so we had to drive almost into Shrewsbury, to be abble to let him off of the lead, for a 'proper' run. We missed having a 'real' garden, had the weather been good, we would have spent time just sat-out, but on the nicer days, the very tiny garden was a bit restrictive.
There were other points, but as it is now 6 months ago, I cannot recall them all, but they were written down, and handed to the owners.
Whenever I have made suggestions to 'Sykes', there has never been any form of contact back to me, so I feel it isn't worth bothering!

Church Stretton

First class very nice cottage, spacious and well equipped. General decoration looking a bit "tired" -as interior is relatively dark would probably enhance if all walls painted magnolia. On a working farm but quite private and quiet, owners very welcoming and pleasant.
Would stay there again.

Churxh Stretton

Very enjoyable

We had a very relaxed few days, the cottage is lovely with great attention to detail. We had very mixed weather. Great areas for walking locally and Church Stretton a must.
Would not hesitate to return again.

A cottage I would like for my home.

Made to feel most welcome, a very relaxed atmosphere, the owners were completely concerned that our stay would be a good one. The barn was very comfortable with a lovely atmosphere.The farm surroundings were great, rural but very handy to get to all the well worth visiting places.One of the best aspects was the peace and tranquility but in the barn we had to be up early to avail ourselves of the hot water as there was none when the boiler went off at 8 30 am.

Really cosy barn conversion

My family and I stayed here for Christmas and where really impressed by the little extras supplied by the owners. The barn has many interesting features, including stain glass window, oak staircase (unusual entrance into main bedroom- over bridge). The beds where really comfy. All the rooms have several different lighting options to create romantic atmosphere, especially with the wood burner. Kitchen equipped with everything needed to cook Christmas dinner and more. Lovely walks in the area with the dog, Cardingmill valley is a must. Good shopping and indian in Shrewsbury.
Would I recommend it, definitely not, I want to keep it all to myself.
Already booked for October this year, can't wait to return.

A fabulous Christmas

We have now had 2 Christmas breaks at The Granary and it is absolutely perfect...the cottage itself is beautiful and the warm friendly welcome you get from the owners, yet not intrusive, along with lovely Christmas cake and mince pies waiting for you on arrival just finishes the whole experience off to perfection. Oh and not forgetting the lovely Christmas tree and log burner.. Hope to come again soon..

Great place to stay - lots to see and do within 30 min drive

The property was lovely and made a cosy stay with the log burner in the evenings. If the sky is clear, be sure to gaze up and be amazed at how many stars you can see in this area of low light pollution.
Lots to see and do within 30 min drive, recommend RaF museum at Cosford, free and well worth a visit. Got a family year pass for all the museums and attractions in and around Ironbridege, worth every penny. Particularly enjoyed Blists hill victorian town and Ironbridge is a lovely place.
Not much nearby if you are on foot but it made a nice peaceful location.
Would go here again.

A perfect country holiday cottage

Thre Granary was well furnished and equipped, spotlessly clean, and with those delightful features that are part of barn conversions.
Plus fresh eggs awaiting us!
The surrounding countryside and towns were an eye-opener - just lovely a well kept secret

super place

We spent a lovely week here in the summer. The house was beautiful, and full of character...only complaint was the shower in the en-suite was miniscule, and the shower curtain would stick to your legs if you took a shower! The kids loved the barn...and so did the parents! Lots of things to do, pool, badminton, table tennis, trampoline, darts etc even when it was raining. Beautiful cake was made for us on arrival...yum!
All in all it was a great place to return home to, when we had a day sight seeing or shopping! Little patio at the back is a real sun trap in the morning, and we sat at the front in the afternoon. The owners were really friendly, yet give you your privacy which was really appreciated!

A Shropshire adventure

A lovely well thought out property which was a fantastic base from which to explore beautiful Shropshire, which exceeded our expectations. Owners were around but unintrusive. Lovely play barn if you have little ones. Our dog enjoyed her first holiday and the little courtyard is secure. Aside from the muddy cow fields opposite, which we wouldn't recommend a walk through, although we did laugh a lot, there are some fabulous places to visit and walk. Highly recommend this property and Shropshire

Mrs E

Fantastic stay in lovely cottage.

Beautifully appointed cottage on working farm.Spotlessly clean throughout with everything you need for a relaxing stay.Homemade cake for us on arrival was a nice touch.In a very quiet area within walking distance of local pub. Lots of walks in the area and plenty of places to visit including Ludlow,Bishop's Castle, Shrewsbury and the highlight for us Hawkstone park and gardens.The owners are very friendly and our daughters loved the games barn and helping with bottle feeding the lambs.A perfect getaway for a relaxing break.

Lovely Cottage, Superb Accommodation, Friendly owners

WE stayed at the Granary for a week in August. The accommodation was lovely, our 3 kids enjoyed playing in the barn and we all helped out feeding the cattle, plus a ride in the Tractor. The owners were very friendly and always willing to help. We explored the area visited Church Stretton, and Shrewsbury. Some nice walks - Altogether a lovely relaxing holiday!

Ola S

Excellent home from home

This was an excellent holiday home that surpasses all expectations. From the welcome tray of a fresh baked cake with fllowers, tea and coffee and freh milk to a well stocked wood basket for the wood burning fire.
The facilities both in the converted barn to games available to play in the games barn (snooker, chess, badmington, football, cricket nets...) make this a real holiday rental that allows you to relax and unwind.
The owners were very welcoming and I would gladly visit again and recommend to anyone.

Thank you!

The Granary was a beautiful barn conversion, full of character and very comfortable. The children loved playing in the games barn, which was really well equipped.

Enjoyed exploring the local lanes on bikes that we had delivered to the property by a local firm. We visited numerous museums and places of interest within the locality and went quad bike trekking. All in all a very successful holiday with something for everyone.

The owners of the cottage really pulled out all the stops to make the cottage festive at New Year (Christmas Tree & lights) and also went the extra mile to make our daughter's 2nd birthday really special by giving her a tractor ride and facilitating our fireworks in one of his fields. Really personal touch.

Mrs Holding

Really good standard of accommodation.

We really loved staying in the Granary. The barn has been beautifully converted and suited our needs very well.
