A gem of a country hideaway in beautiful Shropshire. Fran and Chris gave us the warmest welcome and checked we were ok, letting us know they were there if we needed them. The accommodation was quaint but with all mod cons, immaculately clean with high quality bedding and towels etc. We were in the perfect location to visit places such as Iron bridgRead moree, Shrewsbury and the Welsh border. A short walk only to the pub and village where we found all local amenities. A perfect peaceful getaway. Hide

The cottage was an excellent holiday venue for two; cosy, comfortable and well equipped. The owners were friendly and helpful, providing a well resourced box of suggestions for local walks and visits. The cottage is very well situated for visits to several National Trust and English Heritage properties, as well as within reach of larger towns such Read moreas Ludlow, Hereford and Worcester. We had an excellent meal at the local pub and the local Co-op was good. Overall, highly recommended. Hide

Comfortable accommodation where the owner had clearly given a lot of thought to what holidaymakers would need. We found the decor very calm and tasteful. Our hostess was available, friendly and helpful but we also had complete privacy. Beautiful area with good walks and cycle rides and not too crowded

We had a wonderful time at Home Farm Barn. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Fran was a very helpful and welcoming host. It was perfectly situated for exploring the area. There's a lovely pub a short walk away and a shop in the nearby village. We will definitely be back.

This is a lovely cottage which has been renovated to a very high standard of decor and comfort. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. It is situated in lovely countryside and in walking distance from the local village and an excellent pub/ restaurant. Ideal for visiting Salisbury and a number of National Trust properties.

Lovely, well-equipped cottage and very friendly owners. Cottage is ideal for 2 people and is close to local amenities (shops, pubs, restaurants). In a scenic part of Shropshire - wide ranging views of nearby hills were a pleasure to see.
