The Wainscott is one of two delightfully renovated 18th-century barn conversions on a 22-acre smallholding near the pretty hamlet of Great Lyth, about five miles outside the medieval town of Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
This three-bedroom rural cottage stands close to the owner’s farmhouse and is surrounded by lovely grounds. The farm is home to sheep, chickens, and an extensive organic kitchen garden from which eggs and seasonal vegetables are made available to guests.
The sitting room comes with a woodburner stove, TV with Freeview, and DVD player, while the kitchen adjoins to the dining area that seats up to six guests. This child-friendly cottage also includes a pretty, fenced lawned garden with a furnished patio and barbecue.
The grounds feature an unfenced pond stocked with carp and a year-round hard tennis court open to guests to use by arrangement with the owner.
Great Lyth stands in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and lies close to the beautiful Shropshire hills of Long Mynd, Stiperstones, and Caradoc, all of which can be explored by foot, bicycle, horseback or car.
Shrewsbury, set into a loop of the River Severn, is famous for its timber-framed black and white buildings, as well as picturesque riverside walks and its abbey and castle. The World Heritage Centre of Ironbridge and the Wroxeter Roman City are short drives away and make perfect day trip destinations.
