Stroll around the owners’ 6-acre grounds to see the wildlife and visit the alpacas.\nThe Hayloft is within the grounds of Sleapford Farm which was part of the Duke of Sutherland Lilleshall Estate and dates back to the late 18th centuryearly 19th century. James Loch Land Agent for the Duke of Sutherland made improvements to many of the cottages and farms on the Lilleshall Estate around 1820 and the surrounding land The Weald Moors was also extensively drained at this time. The Hayloft was originally the old brick built cowshed to Sleapford Farm with The Hayloft above and had stalls with tyings and mangers for 4 cows and it is thought it dates back to around 1820 when James Loch made these improvements. It was sympathetically renovated and extended by the existing owners in 2008 when the oak timber frame section was added to the original brick building on the footprint of what had been a corrugated iron extension to the original cowshed with stalls and tyings for a further 8 cows.\nThere are many attractions to explore nearby including RAF Cosford Ironbridge Gorge Museums and Blists Hill Victorian Town.

    The Hayloft is extremely comfortable and very well equipped. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The area has some outstanding attractions. We spent many happy hours at the Ironbridge Gorge museums as well as visiting Attingham Park and the World of Wedgwood. We had a wonderful holiday and are definitely planning to visit the Hayloft again next year.

    Carole and David are wonderful hosts who cannot do enough for you but are not over bearing. The Hayloft is immaculate with more than everything you need. Very high spec even with an electric car charging point we which we used on a number of occasions. The welcome pack is well appreciated and a lovely touch. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. You will need a car to get around.

    A very comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage that has character and plenty of space (including a separate barn for bike storage). It is near good road connections to visit sites such as Shrewsbury, Ironbridge and the Shropshire hills. The owners are friendly and helpful.

    Immaculate comfortable very well equipped cottage. Comfortable beds great shower and super thick towels. Totally equipped kitchen, smart TVs in every room. My daughter said it was like a posh hotel (Although self catering obviously). South facing decking with chairs and table. Very quiet immediate area but pub in walking distance which served a great Sunday lunch (need to book) and were great with allergies if you need that. The owners were very helpful if needed and full of local information but equally left us to our own devices. Lots of places to visit within a 30 min drive. Would thoroughly recommend.

    We have stayed in lots of holiday cottages and this is the best so far. Location wise we have had cottages that have had better views and it has slight traffic noise but this is being very picky. The Hayloft is superb accommodation and we would have no hesitation returning and hopefully one day we will.

    This is our second visit to this lovely cottage. It has all the amenities you could want. Carole and David are excellent hosts. We visited the Fox and Hounds at Shawbury for a lunch and also a supper, both were excellent. We hope to return again.

    Carole and David are such excellent hosts nothing was too much trouble. Welcome pack on arrival was much appreciated. Could not fault anything. We will definitely be back as there is so much to do and see in the area. The Ugly Duckling pub was a bonus and walkable also the Lion Inn about 3 miles away for a delicious curry. Overall one of the best properties we have stayed in. Would highly recommend

    We have stayed in many cottages over the years and The Hayloft comes close to the top. It is spacious and very well appointed. The owners Carole and David are very welcoming and helpful. There are beautiful views from the terrace where you can see the local wildlife. There are many sighs to see within a relatively short drive. All in all, an excellent place to stay.

    Fabulous cottage in a good and quiet location. Very clean. Warm welcome from the owners, they gave us a tour in the house and all the information we needed. Great welcome pack with lots of goodies. Excellent beds. Good pub in walking distance. There are many nice walks in the area and beautiful gardens and NT properties to visit. Would definitely recommend the Hayloft.

    We had a lovely stay at The Hayloft and would definitely return. We could not find any faults and found it to be very clean and well equipped. It is very luxurious with lovely fittings and fixtures. Carole and David were lovely hosts and were on hand if you needed them. Thank you for a wonderful break.
