The Dairy and The Byre are luxurious, converted 18th Century barns surrounded by South Shropshire’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty halfway between Ludlow and Church Stretton. The Stunning panorama includes the 20 mile length of Wenlock Edge with Clee Hill and The Corvedale to the east and Mortimer Forest to the south. The Stretton Hills and the Long Mynd are to the north and a short distance to the west is Hopesay Common, a very special wild place in the care of the National Trust.
A right royal welcome awaits you at Highgrove Barns in the Shropshire Hills just 1 mile from Craven Arms, home of Stokesay Castle. The 4 Star Visit Britain cottages are consistently rated as Excellent on TripAdvisor and Guestlink. The ground floor holiday cottages are on a level site with a large parking area and secure garden. Under a mellow Welsh slate roof clad in waney edged timber in the local style they have exposed stone walls and vaulted oak beamed ceilings. They offer the highest levels of comfort all year round with their underfloor and lpg heating, oak kitchen units and slate floors. Relax and enjoy the peaceful alfresco surroundings on either of the two separate patios in the rustic cottage garden.
The Byre (sleeps 2 + cot + child’s bed) with windows to the East and South. The Dairy (sleeps 2 + cot) looks south over the former farmyard and beyond to Stokesay, Whitcliffe and the Mortimer Forest.
WONDERFUL FOR TOURING & THE OUTDOOR LIFE The unsurpassable 12th Century fortified manor house of Stokesay Castle is close by as is Stokesay Court, idyllic setting for the film ‘Atonement’ starring Keira Knightley. Craven Arms, a twenty five minute walk away is home to South Shropshire’s award winning Secret Hills Discovery Centre and the Land of Lost Content Museum as well as providing shops, post office and a main line rail station on the Manchester – Cardiff route. Right outside the gate to Highgrove and into Long Lane, the old Turnpike road is now a quiet byway. Turning in either direction leads to wonderful walks or (energetic!) cycle rides westwards along Six Castles Cycleway, National Cycling Route 44, up to Wart Hill and beyond or down to the Onny meadows.
Within seven miles or so are Church Stretton, known as Little Switzerland and Ludlow, reputed by many to be the finest medieval town in England. Famed nowadays for its local food and highly rated restaurants it still holds its ancient street markets several days a week and annual culture and food festivals centred around its magnificent lofty castle. There is however, no necessity to travel far for good food as pubs and restaurants serving a range of mainly locally sourced foods are within easy reach. Ancient churches abound in idyllic towns and villages as well as modern, lively places of worship in local communities. Birthplace of the industrial revolution, Ironbridge’s World Heritage sites, are within easy reach, 40 minutes by car. North and South along the A49 are the historic county towns of Shrewsbury and Hereford respectively. Craven Arms itself is known as the gateway to the Marches, as this Welsh border country has been referred to over the centuries. We warmly invite you to come and sample the hospitality and friendliness of this relatively undiscovered, but stunningly beautiful part of Britain, and to stay with us at Highgrove whatever your interests and at any season of the year – this is truly an all-year-round holiday place.
