The Hayloft

Shrewsbury, Shropshire

All is spacious and glossy in this sleek barn conversion. Perfect for walkers, families, groups, on edge-of-village in rural Shropshire


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 6


John and Jo, who live next door with their children, have converted this old redbrick barn with a cool curved roof into a sleek and stylish holiday home. All ages will be happy here: there are downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms for grandparents, cupboards brimming with toys and a huge expanse of lawn for little ones and a grown-up vibe for everyone else. Step into the practical hall – coat and muddy welly storage plus washing stuff is all here. Downstairs are two bedrooms; a sunny twin and en suite double with views; and an expansive open-plan kitchen/living/dining room. The modern kitchen with its American style fridge was built with serious cooking in mind; the dining area has been jazzed up with local art and the living room is comfy with sofas and armchair in front of a big flatscreen and funky wood-burner (unlimited logs keep you toasty, as does the underfloor heating). Upstairs is a mezzanine hangout with sofabed and another double. Smart, neutral bedrooms are livened up with Welsh throws and the bathrooms are indulgent. You’re on the Severn Way walking route for delightful ambles along the river’s meandering path.

We enjoyed a fabulous stay at The Hayloft which had been creatively restored and decorated by the owners. The accommodation is luxurious throughout, from the Welsh blankets on the generously-sized beds to the cosy open living space with wood burner, selection of reading books and Orla Kieley kitchenware. We woke to views across the beautiful Shropshire countryside and enjoyed exploring the local area. Superb stay, fabulous hosts.

Local points of interest from John & Joanna Yates

  • Take a stroll around the historic town of Shrewsbury birthplace of Charles Darwin. Enjoy some cafe culture or take a boat ride along the River Severn. Maybe catch a film in our independent cinema The Old Market Hall whilst enjoying a glass or two of wine
  • Stare at our views of the South Shropshire Hills and if your feeling energetic go and walk in them. Take some refreshment at The Bridges in Rattlinghope then walk across the Long Mynd admiring the vistas into Wales.
  • Spend a day at Attingham Park one of the National Trust's most popular stately homes. On the way home pop in to the Mytton & Mermaid an old coaching inn with a welcoming log fire in the winter and large garden by the river for when the sun is shining.
  • If history is your thing we are located in Wroxeter the site of the fourth largest Roman settlement in the UK (Viroconium). Walk through the village to the English Heritage Visitor Centre, tour the ruins and visit the replica Roman villa.
