Blue & Green holiday cottages: The Olde Granary, Shropshire


Dating back to 1600 and bursting with character and charm, these tastefully converted barns retain many of their original features whilst offering all modern comforts in their smartly furnished interiors. They are available to book now through cottages4you.

Lovely country walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep. Set on a courtyard, and each enjoying its own terrace and lawned garden, the cottages are located in Plealey, a peaceful and pretty village of half timbered houses lying just 6 miles from the interesting shops, inns, restaurants and cultural life found in the handsome medieval town of Shrewsbury.

The beautiful Shropshire landscape promises delight for bird watchers and walkers alike – Offa’s Dyke long distance footpath is easily accessible, with many circular walks taking in hill forts and castles on the way, whilst buzzards and skylarks soar above. Caer Caradoc and the Devils Chair on the Stiperstones possess a wild beauty and the conservation area of Long Mynd offers a wonderful day out. Spanning the River Severn, Ironbridge and its fascinating museums are among a wealth of attractions discovered within a short drive as is Ludlow, a famous paradise for ‘foodies’, with its superb annual festival, racecourse, impressive castle, fine shops and delightful old inns.

Features: On the ground floor is a living room with French doors, dining room/kitchen and toilet. Located on the first floor are four bedrooms – two double, one with en-suite shower room and toilet, and two twin, one with en-suite bathroom and toilet. A Z-bed available.

Sleeps: 9 / Bedrooms: 4 / Pets: 1
