They share a multi-sports court for mini tennis badminton and football with other barns on site as well as a fantastic indoor heated swimming pool.

The swimming pool is open all year round but opening times may vary. A woodland picnic area lies a short walk away from your barns and there is a fantastic enclosed toddler play area available for children under 6 years. Walkers can explore the Shropshire Union Canal just 5 minutes away and the Shropshire Way footpath runs through the farm while coarse fishing is less than 5 miles and horse riding 1½ miles away. For cyclists the Mercian Cycle Path runs past the farm. Whilst the barns enjoy a peaceful rural setting they are still very close to amenities. Whitchurch is approximately 2½ miles away the delightful market town has many splendid buildings from medieval Tudor and Georgian times all dominated by St. Alkmund’s Church. Internationally renowned for its clock production dating back to the 1650s Whitchurch is known as ’the Home of Tower Clocks’ and a fine example can be seen on one of the barns. There are many excellent shops pubs and restaurants in the town which is perfectly placed for touring all of Shropshire North Wales and Cheshire. Attractions close by include Ellesmere with its beautiful lakes 11 miles a variety of National Trust mansions and gardens and the historical city of Chester with its excellent shopping and famous races 25 miles with the Blue Planet Aquarium close by.

Other places of interest include Hawkstone Follies Cheshire Ice Cream Farm RAF Cosford Fenn’s and Whixall Mosses and the incredible Ironbridge Gorge. For great shopping there is Shrewsbury with its medieval architecture and riverside walks and Telford with its indoor shopping centre. Shop and restaurant 2 miles pub approx 1 mile. These properties are two of five which share a courtyard. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/106/840/10662587.jpg UKC873

    A very happy and comfortable week's stay in a very spacious and very well-appointed barn conversion on a beautiful rural, peaceful and secluded site. The property easily swallowed a family groups of 7: 3 family couples and an older teen in spacious bedrooms with modern sleek ensuites and main bathrooms. The layout of 2 separate landing suites each of 3 bedrooms meant we could even have a generational segregation! Super very well equipped kitchen and dining area, and massive main lounge and smaller snug area appreciated by all. TV and Wi-fi provision faultless. A couple of miles of narrow lanes saw us able to access a number of A roads north,south and west to Chester, Chirk, Shrewsbury ... historical cities/towns, castles, mansions, parks and zoos. A very happy week in a property unanimously voted by the family as our best ever (20 yrs of self-catering hols). Time flew by.

    Loved our stay!!



    out of 10

    This was the perfect venue for a week long holiday for three generations of our family. There was loads of spaces, lots for the children to do with toys inside and outside and the pool. We were blessed with good weather so even got to enjoy the terrace overlooking the pond. We loved the view from the barn and the two resident ducks kept adults and kids alike amused.



    out of 10

    We loved the barn as soon as we entered, so much space, great for a large group, especially the sitting room which was a fantastic space. I loved the kitchen, really well equipped and as I was catering for everyone it had everything I needed. Pool was added extra, lovely and warm, great for the kids and my elderly mother had a quiet swim on her own one afternoon which she loved. For a rural location the WIFI was great, we had no problems at all. We would definelty recommend, Buttercups Hay Barn is a bit of luxury for us and we will be returning.

    Fab accommodation. Lovely set up and pool a bonus. Is great for families. About 3 mikes from Whitchurch so need a car or use taxis like we did. Walking could be slightly dangerous as no paths. Great stay.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cottage, beautiful weather and fabulous location.

    Great location, lovely accommodation, very clean. Pool was perfect for the kids and had a great day at Park Hall Farm. Great countryside walks and view over the wildlife pond was amazing, lots of wildlife and the owners supply binoculars, which we used regularly.



    out of 10

    Lovely cottage. Easily accommodated three families without ever feeling overcrowded. Swimming pool temperature were great especially since we had a little one with us. Couldn’t fault the place. Was expensive but you get what you pay for
