The Granary is three miles from both Clun and Bishops Castle, in beautiful south Shropshire. It is situated on a working farm in the hamlet of Acton.
The Granary is in a perfect rural location for walkers and cyclists wanting to explore the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with walks straight from the doorway. Shops, pubs and public transport are three miles away. We are a short drive from Offas Dyke, Stiperstones and Long Mynd also Ludlow, Shrewsbury and Welsh Marches.

The space
The Granary is a newly refurbished, self contained annex in our Grade II listed barn conversion. Featuring oak doors, floors and staircase and flag stones downstairs.
The open plan living area consists of kitchen, dining and sitting area.
The kitchen is equipped with cooker, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave, toaster, cutlery and all equipment to cook yourself a meal.
A new sofa and television are positioned by the French doors in the lounge area.
Board games and magazines are available for your use.

There is a small patio outside the French windows for guests use. There is plentiful parking next to the property.

Upstairs this quirky property has a large bedroom with vaulted ceiling, king size bed and a sofabed suitable for a child. ~There's plenty of room for a travel cot if guests would like to bring their own. The bathroom is fitted with a separate electric shower as well as a bath.
This characterful barn has a low door way on the upstairs landing and another at the top of the granary steps.
Due to its rural location with little public transport guests are advised to have their own transport. We are a 15 minute drive from Walcot Hall wedding venue and taxi's are difficult to book.

Guest access
To comply with Covid regulations guests must be from the same household. Guests need to be aware that the property is on the edge of a working farmyard. Farm buildings are close and farm machinery is on occassion working nearby. That said we are a small arable and sheep farm and we would be unlikely to disturb your stay.
As we are situated at the end of a quiet country lane this is likely to be one of the most tranquil places you've visited.
Due to Health and Safety laws guests are not able to wander around the farmyard, they must stay within the permitted area (house, patio and parking area).

Other things to note
Free Wifi.
Mobile phone signal can be patchy in this part of Shropshire so we cannot promise good reception. Mobiles will work in the property with Wifi Calling.
You are able to charge your electric car for a small charge. Please enquire before booking.
No pets.
The accommodation is for the use of the booked guests only. Due to health and safety issues and Covid 19 regulations unauthorized people will not be allowed at the property.
