Wonderful location with glorious viewsMolly's Barn is in a wonderful secluded spot, nestled in amongst a backdrop of trees it is set up above the owner's own beautiful cottage and offers glorious views of the surrounding countryside.
Although secluded Molly's Barn is only a short drive from two small villages where a local pub can be found for food. Molly's Barn is a recent conversion of the top floor in a detached timber clad barn. The entrance is reached by a staircase to the right of the barn and leads straight in to the open plan living/dining/kitchen area. Wonderfully light and bright it is a comfortable space extremely well thought out to maximize space There is a cosy woodburner and electric heaters so no need to worry about feeling cold. As Molly's Barn is on the top floor in the eaves there is restricted head height in certain areas and therefore probably not suitable for extremely tall people (6' 5" and over).
Straight ahead is the lovely light bedroom with dual aspect windows. There is a 5' wide kingsize bed that can be split into 2 singles on request. Quality duvets, pillows, bed linen and towels are provided.
The bathroom is to the right off the open plan sitting/dining/kitchen and has a bath with hand held shower head, wc and wash hand basin.
The kitchen is well fitted out including a dishwasher and washing machine perfect for those who want to spend their time in the outdoors whatever the weather.
Molly's Barn is in one of those areas where mobile signals are hit or miss with Orange or Vodaphone getting the best reception. There is wifi in the barn so you are not entirely cut off from the world and a landline can be accessed in case of emergencies.
All in all Molly's Barn is a wonderful retreat away from the world, secluded and peaceful a place to recharge your batteries and enjoy the wonderful surrounding countryside.
A lovely area with lots to see and do, walks starting from the door, easy access to South Shropshire towns and historical sites. Walking, cycling or riding or exploring the small market towns nearby, perfect, whatever the season.
