Great Lyth Farm Cottages
A wonderful opportunity to enjoy two delightful 18th century Grade II listed barn conversions, which have been sympathetically developed to offer well equipped accommodation in an idyllic rural location, 5 miles from medieval Shrewsbury. They stand close to the owner's farmhouse, surrounded by lovely grounds, within a 22 acre smallholding which is home to sheep, chickens and an extensive organic kitchen garden from which eggs and seasonal vegetables are available. Both cottages have a pretty, fenced garden; perfect for dining alfresco. Guests have use of a year-round hard tennis court and coarse fishing (including carp) on the picturesque and well-stocked 1 acre pond, only 100 yards away.

About the location
Shrewsbury 5 miles; Church Stretton 10 miles.
A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
Great Lyth is a pretty hamlet situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to the stunning Shropshire hills including the Long Mynd and Caradoc which offer many walking, cycling, horse riding and scenic driving opportunities. The fascinating medieval town of Shrewsbury, renowned for its timber framed black and white buildings, is just five miles away The town offers a superb selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, pretty riverside walks, boat trips, and the beautiful Shrewsbury Abbey and Castle. The 10 museums of the World Heritage Centre of Ironbridge, Attingham Park, Stokesay Castle, the Wroxeter Roman City, and the picturesque town of Church Stretton are also all close to Great Lyth.
