About The Granary

The Granary is an ideal holiday home for a wonderful family walking or cycling holiday in the Shropshire Hills. The spacious apartment is entirely on the first floor, boasting an open plan living area with a Juliet balcony that makes the most of the beautiful countryside views. It couldn't be more peaceful, being on a 15-acre smallholding at the end of a country lane in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Despite its seclusion, The Granary is convenient for Bishops Castle and Church Stretton. The nearest pub is The Crown in Wentnor, a 20-minute uphill walk that sees you working up an honest thirst. While the three-bedroom apartment is ideal for families of up to five people, it also suits couples who appreciate the extra space.

The Shropshire Hills are rich with opportunity for walkers and hikers. You'll enjoy spectacular views wherever you go, following well-established footpaths that include Offa's Dyke Path, the Shropshire Way (accessible from nearby Adstone Walk), and the Heart of Wales Line Trail that goes from Craven Arms to Llanelli near Swansea. Stiperstones and Wenlock Edge are both close to The Granary, giving you an excellent starting point for many memorable walks. The Granary is at the base of Long Mynd, an area of heathland with singletrack mountain bike routes and footpaths that lead into Carding Mill Valley.

You don't need to be a keen walker or cyclists to enjoy a fantastic holiday at The Granary. This area is full of charming towns, historical sites and places of interest that will keep everyone happily occupied on fun-filled days out. Church Stretton is a busy market town where independent businesses sell local produce, supplemented by a weekly market every Thursday. You can climb Caer Caradoc, play golf at England's second-highest golf course, and arrange to go hang-gliding or hot air ballooning. A short drive or train ride from Church Stretton, Ludlow is another superb choice for shopping and fine dining. Start at St Lawrence Church and make your way through the regular market and along streets lined with specialist food shops, historic pubs and superb eateries that lead up to the ancient castle. Ludlow is renowned for its annual food festival and its impressive number of black-and-white timber-framed buildings.

Day trips can include sightseeing at the Ironbridge UNESCO World Heritage Site, visiting the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm and Stokesay Castle, or wandering around numerous National Trust houses and gardens. Shrewsbury is around half an hour's drive away with a castle, museum, great shops and all of the amenities you would expect from Shropshire's county town.

The Granary is available for bookings all year round, apart from the festive season and throughout January.
