Positive Reviews

Excellent standard of accommodation

Guests are generally thrilled by the standard of accommodation here, consistently describing the rooms as spotlessly clean, comfortable, and spacious with extras that you might usually associate with top-end hotels.

Friendly service from staff

Previous guests have received a warm welcome at these barns, finding the staff is genuinely friendly and happy to answer questions and provide information about local transportation and attractions. It appears unlikely that you will encounter any service related issues here.

Location is popular with guests

The location of these barns has proved popular. Guests have found that the property is within a short walk of the train station as well as a grocery store and several good dining spots. The driving distance to Shrewsbury is said to be very reasonable.

Negative Reviews

Music from nearby pub can be a problem

Although some guests have specifically mentioned that they found their barn was quiet, others have mentioned a little noise coming from the adjacent pub. It does seem that this is only likely to be an issue over the weekends.

Parking may be an issue

Feedback about the parking here is a little mixed. A number of guests note that the parking facilities are shared with the pub so you may potentially find the parking facilities a little cramped at times.

No breakfast available

Potential guests should note the lack of breakfast here. The adjacent pub opens for food from lunchtime only, so you will need to make alternative arrangements to enjoy a morning meal. There are plenty of dining options in the village, so it is unlikely that the absence of breakfast will cause anything beyond a minor inconvenience.
