Cuckoo Croft Contemporary Holiday Barn Tourism England rated four star Gold quality accommodation. Cuckoo Croft is located in the quiet Shropshire hamlet of Little Ryton, an ideal base for family holidays and get togethers with friends, and for exploring the market towns of Shropshire and the surrounding countryside. The Croft has been sympathetically converted from an old cow barn and stables, it's agricultural roots being reflected in the modern architectural detailing. With triple glazed windows, underfloor heating, ventilation system and solar pv panels this property combines contemporary styling, comfortable living and green credentials. There are five bedrooms, three double rooms and two triple rooms. Three bedrooms have en suite shower rooms and two share a family bathroom. The spacious open garden is enclosed by oak palisade fencing and hazel hurdles so is safe for children to run freely. The large patio has outdoor eating facilities and offers spectacular views out over the South Shropshire hills. The historic county town of Shrewsbury is within 6 miles of the property, as is the popular market town of Church Stretton. (Both are on the bus route which comes through Ryton if you prefer not to drive.) For walkers and off-road cyclists the Long Mynd, Lawley and Caer Caradoc are easily accessible whilst for roadies, there are a variety of scenic routes for every level of fitness! Our local village hall holds regular Flicks in the Sticks film events and The Horseshoes Inn in Dorrington (about 1.5 miles away) has a good reputation for lunch and evening meals. For very local entertainment your neighbours have two friendly dogs and some nosey (and photogenic) highland cows and calves.
Fantastic modern, clean, stylish and spacious accommodation for a large group. We were 3 families with 6 adults and 6 children between us and it worked perfectly. It was our second visit and unlikely to be our last! Despite the fantastic setting, my favourite thing about this place isn't the barn itself ... Tracy and Nigel make all the difference. We've been to lots of barns and cottages over the years and the thing that makes all the difference is having hosts who are genuinely kind and accommodating. Tracy and Nigel are exactly that and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cuckoo Croft on that a...more
