About William's Hayloft

William's Hayloft is on a working farm in rural Shropshire, with gorgeous views in every direction. It is ideal for families and friends who want space and privacy, together with excellent on-site facilities and beautiful footpaths and cycling routes from the door. The cottage sleeps up to six people in three bedrooms and is pet-friendly, with guests enjoying facilities like an indoor swimming pool, a sports court and bike hire. It is one of five fantastic self-catering properties at Alkington Grange Barns.

There is so much to do in and around the farm that you may struggle to fit it all in during your stay! Walkers will love having direct access to the long-distance Shropshire Way footpath, which passes through the farm. Guests are also close to Offa's Dyke, the Llangollen Canal, and the Whitchurch Wheel footpaths. Cyclists won't feel left out as they can follow the Sustrans Route 45 as it goes between Chester and Salisbury, or have fun on the mountain bike trails and bridleways. There is bike storage on-site, and the owners can also arrange bike hire for those who need it.

Spend fun-filled days discovering the delights of places like Shrewsbury, Oswestry, Whitchurch and Wrexham. The historic Roman town of Chester is under an hour's drive, or you could spend a day in Liverpool, sightseeing, shopping and eating. Chester Zoo and Alton Towers are always popular, or maybe the Fenn's, Whixall and Bettisfield Mosses National Nature Reserve is more to your taste. There are three UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the area, so add Ironbridge Gorge, the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal, and Maritime Mercantile City in Liverpool to your itinerary.

With such great amenities at Alkington Grange Barns, you don't even need to leave the farm to have fun. Start your day with a swim in the heated indoor pool, challenge the kids to footy or tennis, or watch your toddler play safely in the adventure playground specially designed for littlies. There are barbecues, picnic tables and a peaceful wildlife area for spotting birds, squirrels and other wildlife that thrive in this beautiful environment.

Every booking at Alkington Grange Barns comes with the security of Master Cancel Insurance to allow you to plan your holiday with the confidence that you won't be out of pocket if you need to cancel at short notice. Please see the owner's website for details.
