About Emma's Dairy

Emma's Dairy is a pretty, pet-friendly cottage named after one of the owners of Alkington Grange Barns. Up to five guests can sleep comfortably in three bedrooms, enjoying certified 4-Star accommodation and excellent onsite amenities that range from a heated indoor swimming pool to bike hire. The cottage is one of five superb self-catering properties on the working farm and perfect for families.

Alkington Grange Barns are in rural Shropshire, only a few miles from Whitchurch where there is a wide choice of amenities that include five supermarkets and a variety of independent shops and pubs. There is a regular market every Friday and a special Farmers Market in the Bullring on the first Saturday of the month. Shrewsbury is just over half an hour from Emma's Dairy, offering a selection of places to eat, drink and shop in addition to attractions such as Shrewsbury Castle, a museum and art gallery, and some of the finest Tudor black-and-white half-timbered houses in the country. Temper country charm with some cosmopolitan style in Chester or Liverpool, both of which are packed with shops, sights and places to eat and drink.

Walking is a favourite way to enjoy the beauty of this region, which is close to the Welsh Border and Offa's Dyke. The long-distance Shropshire Way footpath passes through the farm, while the Llangollen Canal and Sustrans Cycle Route 45 are only a short distance from the cottage and easy to reach on foot or bicycle. There are golf courses, national nature reserves, lakes for swimming and sailing, and even, for the truly adventurous souls, the opportunity to go parachuting and rally driving.

Guests at Emma's Dairy have use of the shared facilities that include a heated indoor swimming pool, multi-purpose sports court, toddler play area, barbecues, and a woodland picnic site and wildlife area. Every booking at Alkington Grange Barns comes with the backing of Master Cancel Insurance so that you can book with the confidence you'll be covered if you have to change your plans at short notice. More information is on the owner's website.
