Glebe Barn is a quaint detached 2 bedroom single story barn conversion sitting alongside Glebe Farm, set in 30 acres of our own pasture & woodland that visitors are welcome to explore.
On the edge of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you’ll discover a special & varied landscape, stunning views, an abundance of wildlife & a wide range of activities. If you want to step out there’s a network of footpaths direct from the door & even a small pub that used to be the local jail
A quaint detached barn conversion in a quiet secluded part of rural Shropshire. Glebe Barn is a peaceful rural retreat and has all you need for a home from home experience, including an oven/hob, micro-wave, fridge freezer, dishwasher and even a washer & dryer. Of course, there's also wifi.
The living space is cosy with a new central heating system installed at the end of 2017 and features a log burner to snuggle up in front of, for which logs are provided free of charge. For those with children, there is a fire guard for safety. The bathroom has a bath with a shower and thanks to the state-of-the-art environmental heating system, there's always plenty of hot water. In summer 2018 we installed new windows and in the main living space French doors that lead out to a newly created terrace area. Great for outdoor dining or enjoying a glass of something chilled while watching the sun set over the Shropshire hills. New durable flooring was fitted in 2019 and in 2020 a new kitchen was installed.
Glebe Barn has been run as a successful holiday let for some years and is ideal for a romantic break, a family holiday exploring the abundance of local attractions and pretty historic market towns, or the perfect place to base yourself for a walking or cycling holiday. There's a dedicated fenced front and rear garden areas, ideal if you need to contain children or dogs. At the rear forming part of the back garden is a raised terrace area accessed via French doors with patio furniture and a BBQ. If you bring bikes, they can be securely locked in one of the outbuildings.
We travel & self cater a lot and find it's inconvenient to have to take items like washing up liquid, dish washer tablets, tea towels, dish cloths, pan scourers, salt, pepper, vinegar, cooking oil etc, so we provide those. We also supply you with enough tea, coffee, sugar & luxury fair trade organic toiletries to keep you going for the first few days too. Although we are in a rural area, Tesco & Asda will do home delivery and a number of the food take-aways in Cleobury Mortimer will deliver.
Although Glebe Barn only sleeps 4 plus an infant, we can offer additional accommodation in the main farmhouse if you'd like family or friends to join you for a few days. 'The Bit On The Side (of our house) can accommodate 2 people, having double or twin beds, one bathroom and a living area along with a small garden. There isn't a full range of cooking facilities, just a micro-wave a toaster, a kettle and a fridge. Think of it as more a hotel suite rather than self catering. It is separated from our house by inter-connecting doors and it has it's own front door. The Bit On The Side is also on Airbnb, contact me for more info and nightly rates.
The sleepy hamlet of Farlow lies at the end of the Shropshire hills. Close by and tucked between The Clee Hills and the near-by Wyre Forest is the charming town of Cleobury Mortimer (approx 3 miles away), with Georgian and Tudor architecture, many individual shops, tea rooms and traditional pubs, and the renowned Church with a crooked spire. The medieval town Ludlow is about 8 miles away in the border Marches, with the cliff top town centre above the river and overlooked by the castle. The town is famous for stunning architecture, the bustling market, food heritage and the numerous events hosted there throughout the year. The village of Ironbridge in a gorge on the River Severn (well under an hour away) is at the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site celebrating the birth of the industrial revolution. The heart of the site is the world-famous bridge (the first major bridge in the world to be made of cast iron) and no less than ten museums celebrating the heritage of the area. The picturesque tourist towns of Stourport and Bewdley, well known for their attractive riversides, bridges and festivals are nearby, as is Bridgnorth, two towns in one connected by the steepest inland funicular railway in Britain. A little further afield you’ll find Shrewsbury, Hereford and Worcester, and we’re not far from the Welsh Borders and the spectacular Elan Valley and its seven massive dams. Birmingham is an hour or so away and for anyone who’s not been there for some time, it’s undergone a huge programme of transformation with the redevelopment of the Bullring Shopping Centre and regeneration of old industrial areas. Kidderminster is closer, with the standard mix of high street shops, retail parks and supermarkets. Just before Kidderminster is the West Midlands Safari & Leisure Park.
We are ideally positions for hiking, cycling and pony trekking, with Country Treks Equestrian Centre just 3 miles away.
We are also well placed for pubs that welcome dogs.
Tesco & Asda Supermarkets also offer a delivery service to our postcode.
