The barn is a converted coach house originally built in the 1850's, with a wood-burner and exposed original stonework and slate floors.
Our place is in The Marches with historical interests like castles and the town of Ludlow nearby. Stunning countryside is all around. You’ll love our place; its location being perfect for hikers, bikers and our local river for wild swimming.
Guests sleep well and comment on the cosiness, setting & the clean air. The night skies are something special if lucky.

The space

Being popular with families and dog owners for walking, it may be useful to know that there is a place to walk your pet on our land 50m away, for the early and late 'duties'.
The barn has a fully equipped kitchen with cooker, microwave, tea and coffee and milk is provided on arrival. Cutlery, crockery, pots and pans and sufficient utensils are in the kitchen for guests use.
Bed linen and towels are also provided so no need to bring with you.
We live next door so should be available to welcome you. Mobile reception is patchy in the area at best (one of the delights of where we live sometimes) so please let us know on (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) mins before you arrive so we can make sure we keep an eye out.
You also have full and private access to a courtyard with seating and furniture for 6 people plus a BBQ and tools. See the photos for more information.

Guest access

You will have access to the whole property and have your own key to use as needed. There is a separate access to the main door so you will remain independent during your stay and we will leave you to your own devices in your space or engage as much as is desired.
If late access is required on first arrival please call ahead to arrange.

Interaction with guests

Help will be available for any issues as we live right next door. Assistance with starting the wood burner can be requested if needed.
We sometimes have pigs (for meat) and also chickens for eggs. If you have children and we are able, they are welcome to participate in feeding the hens and maybe even collecting the eggs. Fresh eggs may be available for £1.50 for half a dozen when the hens are laying.
Produce from the garden is also available for a price during season, so please do ask if you would like to sample (apples, pears, damsons, cherry's, tayberries, loganberries etc).

Other things to note

There is plenty of parking for two cars and extra cars can be accommodated if needed.
It is possible to squeeze a small fifth person on a mattress and we have also managed to host infants safely though not all baby equipment is available.

We spent last weekend here, but would like to come back for a longer holiday. Communication was very easy and quick. That was very helpful as we arrived very late due to a traffic. House itself is very cosy and has enough space for 4 people to feel comfortable (we traveled 2 couples). Good parking space. Location is fantastic - Shropshire hills are close for beautiful walks, Ludlow from another side. Like it very much! Peter and Fiona, thank you!

Our first time using Air BnB and we will struggle to better it. This really is a lovely property in a beautiful part of the world. Peter and Fiona are really excellent hosts and a mine of useful information. The property is very well equipped and the four adults in our party had a lovely bank holiday break. There are so many places nearby and lots of good walks and pubs to try out.

A lovely welcome from Fiona and speedy response to enquiries as we had to rearrange at short notice due to ill health of one of our party. A cosy and well equipped barn with everything you could expect and more. Milk in the fridge and cotton wool pads in the bathroom and great attention to detail, nice cookery and the towels were lovely and soft. Nice bedding too. We had a relaxing and comfortable stay here and would recommend it. Slept like logs!!!! Very restful.

This was a perfect place to stay while I did a three day sculpture workshop, I came back to a warm, clean, well equipped cottage to relax and rest. The cottage was just what I need. Thank you Peter

Response from Peter:
Hi Louise, glad that you enjoyed your stay and also found it suitable for the required relaxation following your sculpture training course. It would be appreciated if the course was made aware of our accommodation as it seems suitable for the attendees. Thanks again for your lovely review. Peter & Fiona

Highbank Barn was a perfect location for exploring this beautiful part of England and Wales. Peter was a great host and gave us some good tips on how to make the most of the village and surrounding area. A visit to the quirky Sun Inn is a must and don't forget to call in at the local butchers for a real treat.

Response from Peter:
Peter & Katie, thank you so much for your kind words. The service is all part of the offering. Glad that you enjoyed the barn and all the village had to offer and I have to agree with you regarding the quirky Sun Inn and Fiddlers Elbow fish and chips served there, cooked to order. Hope to see you again. Peter

We had a wonderful stay! It was perfect for us and our baby - plenty of room and bed space. Peter and Fiona were great hosts and really helped us with filling out our list of activities. We enjoyed the walking in the area, both into town for the pub and fish and chips, and the local hills with spectacular views. It's a great base to explore the region!

Fiona & I love meeting new people. Come and share our beautiful Herefordshire countryside. Leintwardine (pronounced: lent-war-dine) is in an area of outstanding scenic interest and we love our village, with its 3 very different pubs in easy walking distance. The Sun Inn website tells you all about this unique hostelry. There is also a local chippy serving freshly cooked meals which can be delivered to The Sun Inn. The Lion has a lovely riverside setting. The Jolly Frog serves great seafood.
We run a small-holding with pigs & chickens and have dogs and a cat too. Eggs and other garden produce will be available in season.
Come and enjoy the Leintwardine experience, it has kept us here for the last 20 years. There is often live music or entertainment in the village including the annual Arcadia Music Festival.
