Home away from home

A year later and we are still re-living the holiday, and accommodation itself holds special memories for us. My 18 yr old daughter says it was the best holiday of her life. We travelled from australia to stay in Ludlow and it was magic. The barn is huge inside and gave more than enough space for 8 people which included grandparents. We loved the character features, the huge kitchen layout with every utensil you could wish for. the bathrooms were high spec and well done too. Its the kind of place you can hang around in the day time if you are too tired of sight seeing and just kick back. This was the highlight of our 6 months journey. And a big thank you to the owners for your kindness to us! We'll be back ...one day...

A spacious and comfortable family home.

We loved Glebe Barn. It was ideal for a family get together. The location was good for all ages, near Ludlow and many National Trust properties.
The barn had all the facilities you require,with large modern kitchen where we could all gather.Light and spacious, we especially liked the modern en-suite to master bedroom, and lovely lounge.

We love Glebe Barn

We stayed here for a few days in autumn and loved every minute of it. The barn is wonderfully spacious, warm (too warm? That underfloor heating was so efficient! This was a bit upsetting as it meant we couldn't use the fire!) and nicely situated a short drive from Ludlow.

We stayed during a half term so we paid a bit more than it's usually available for, but that's my own fault for marrying a teacher. A week's stay out of term time is very appealing.

The owners were on hand for any questions we had but we tried our best to leave them alone. Lovely couple. Only slight drawback was that there wasn't a pub within walking distance but not a problem really as we were more than happy to stay tucked up in the house after dark.

Highly recommended.

Fun family holiday

We had a lovely fortnight at the Glebe Barn with our two young children aged 2 and 5. It is beautiful, spacious, well-equipped and well-laid-out; great for playing hide-and seek!
There is a lovely lawned garden with table and chairs, a large umbrella and clothes airer; and 'field' beyond that has a trampoline, swing, chicken coop and tons of space to run around.
The owners and their parents were very friendly, lending us some garden toys, giving us fresh eggs and clean linen and towels during our stay.
We really appreciated having the dishwasher, washer/drier and wonderful power showers! We cooked many meals in the huge kitchen - Ludlow is a real foodie place and we enjoyed buying some lovely local produce. There is a market nearly everyday, farmers market and well-priced butcher.
The barn has a small selection of books, DVDs, jigsaw puzzles and a few games. We found the local info. pamphlets very useful. The recently installed wifi was great with a good, strong signal, mobile phone reception is good here too. The TV has freesat, but unfortunately didn't have the CBeebies channel :-(. There is no CD or MP3 player, but there was a DAB radio in the kitchen.
The 3 sofas and 2 chairs in the living room were practical but not comfortable and the plastic material left us feeling rather sweaty. There were also many cobwebs throughout the barn. However, the Glebe Barn is well set up for families. Our youngest was comfortable in the large wooden cot. The highchair was a bit tired, but invaluable once we figured out how to strap him in! I should also mention that there is black-out lining on the curtains in the two double rooms, which we really appreciated, but not in the family room.
There are some great local attractions that proved to be good places to visit with the children:
Ludlow Castle, Croft Castle, Hampton Court Castle, Severn Valley Railway, The Waterworks Museum (Hereford), shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, swimming at Teme Leisure, local playgrounds in Ludlow and Tenbury Wells.



This barn is excellent, everything you need is on site, the owners are on site to give assistance if needed but not watching over us. Would certainly recommend and a lovely place to share for a family occasion.


The occasion was my wife's 70th birthday. We arrived to find a bowl of flowers together with a card.
