A home from home. Everything you need for a relaxing week. Catered well for all ages with a really well thought out play barn for younger children. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful accommodation in a beautiful, tranquil setting. Loved the garden pond and feeding the ever hungry fish, and watching the stars from the hot tub. Had a truly relaxing break and will definitely return.

I cannot rate or recommend this holiday property more highly. Everything was beautifully clean and well presented. The decoration and equipment in the property were more than one would require for a restful holiday. The setting was idyllic and the facilities were way more than expected. The use of an exclusive sauna, hot tub and pool table were more enjoyable than anticipated. We were more than reluctant to leave and hope to return. It was excellent in all respects.

Fantastic in every way with high end luxury at a reasonable price. Highly recommended and we will definitely be returning.

Totally brilliant property. Can't recommend enough. Owners were fantastic. Hot tub and sauna were great.

The Old Sheep Shed was lovingly looked after by the owners, such nice friendly people. The fish pond was such a lovely addition to the cottage when sitting out in the peaceful garden. We also loved having the games room. Everything is being kept to a very high standard, spotlessly clean.

Warm friendly people, excellent facilities including hot tub, clean and very comfortable place to stay.

The pond in the garden was a lovely feature to have. The play barn was an added bonus with air hockey badminton and game table. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. We would happily stay here again and recommend.

The Old Sheep Shed was a delightful property to stay in. You have your own fish pond full of fish to feed every day (food supplied) so a very calming influence to our holiday. There was nothing else needed to make a happy holiday - apart from less rain! The Owners have thought of everything and they are very helpful and lovely people to have as hosts.

The cottage is in a good location for visiting the local area,such as Shrewsbury, Welshpool & Oswestry. The accommodation itself was near faultless and was of such a high standard that it was no hardship staying in and simply relaxing in the hot tub or playing pool in front of the wood burner. The addition of a nearby 'games' room was an added bonus for children and adults of all ages! What really made the holiday stand out however, was the warm welcome & attentiveness of The Owners.

Lovely cottage, lovely setting, and the owners were very friendly.

The property was excellent throughout. A very quiet and tranquil location, can't wait for a return visit!

Loved this cottage. Had a fantastic holiday. The owners are very friendly. Cannot wait to go back.

It was one of the best cottages we have stayed in, and our hosts where very friendly and helpful. There was plenty to do, and lots of interesting places to visit. We would very much like to go back again.

Gorgeous. Loved the hot tub and sauna. Totally relaxing. No light or noise pollution, fantastic! Owners were friendly, but unobtrusive. D├ęcor to a very high standard, but not oppressive.

A lovely cottage in a peaceful location, added bonus of the hot-tub.

There was plenty to do in the Shrewsbury area, and it was wonderful to come home to relax in the hot tub followed by a game of pool in our very own superb cottage.

We liked the facilities, pool table, hot tub and friendliness of the owners. The location is ideal for visits to Iron Bridge and Wales.

The accommodation was superior to most holidays cottages we have ever stayed in. The owners were wonderful and nothing was ever too much bother. It was incredibly peaceful and a relaxing place to get away and unwind for a week. Best holiday in years.

The property was ideal for a family sharing Christmas together. Lots of space, a pool table and hot tub, plenty of games, DVD.s etc for the whole family. Warm, comfortable house.

Very friendly owners, lovely animals, cleanliness was superb. It was lovely to be able to chill out with the sauna, hot tub and pool table when kids were tucked up in bed. The owners have truly thought of everyone!

The owners were warm and welcoming, they were such interesting characters and could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The place was also first class with such charm and great facilities.

The peace and quiet which was conducive to the relaxing weekend we had planned. The hot tub was all that it promised to be. It was too short!

A fantastic area with wonderful people who could not be more helpful. Quiet and peaceful, the perfect place to relax and unwind. The hot tub was amazing. We will definitely return.

The Old Sheep Shed was lovely, comfortable and very well equipped. We had a lovely time and would very much recommend it.

An ideal location for either a quiet break or a base to explore from. A total change to what he family are used to with fish pond, horses, hot tub and pool table to keep them happy. The Old Sheep Shed is fantastic!

Quiet and peacefulness of the location. Very friendly and helpful owners. The perfect cottage for a totally relaxing holiday with a hot tub and sauna.

A very pleasant holiday at the Old Sheep Shed and I'll definitely be back. From an early morning bathe in the hot tub watching the sun glistening through the trees and the fish bubbling in the adjacent pond, to a session in the sauna before wandering down to the local pub for a hearty meal, every moment was a relief from day to day life. The pond with the greenery around it was beautiful even on rainy days and in particular at night when it is nicely lit up. Every time I looked out over it, I was instantly calm and relaxed. What made it more special was finding out the owners had built/converted the cottage themselves with their own hands. This, for me, enhanced the character greatly. Obviously being in the middle of the country meant it was extremely peaceful but Shrewsbury was nearby for a day out and grabbing any necessities.

We absolutely loved it and will be going back!

The cottage was BEAUTIFUL, I can't recommend it enough. The owners were very helpful and accommodating and we were visited by their cat and dog most of the weekend! The hot tub was amazing, as was the pool table and sauna. The views were stunning; overall it was a very relaxing weekend. We didn't leave the cottage, other to go on a walk around the local deer park, everything we needed was on site. We will definitely be returning sometime soon! Perfect relaxing weekend away.

Excellent property, owners went through all items on arrival, great location for touring.

The property itself was stunning and had everything you needed, so much so that we didn't want to leave! The owners should be really proud of what they have done with the Old Sheep Shed!

We had a lovely relaxed time in The Old Sheep Shed. The pool table and sauna were used a lot. CDs, DVDs and games to keep us occupied if we wanted to stay in. It was a very lovely place and the owners were very welcoming. We recommend it highly.

The Old Sheep Shed was a beautifully clean, well thought out and planned holiday home. The owners were so friendly and helpful. We have already recommended this cottage to friends and relatives.

This is one of the best holidays we have ever been on! Me and my family thoroughly enjoyed it. We especially loved the huge pond with all the fish in. The under floor heating was lovely and the hot tub and sauna were such a luxury. We didn't want to come home! Our hosts were exceptional and we have already booked for next year!

Lovely cottage, well equipped and great location, quiet and private from the owners house. Good parking. Friendly welcome, highly recommended.

The extra facilities - Jacuzzi, sauna and pool table - tranquility of the village - farm like atmosphere with animals in surrounding fields.

The hot tub and sauna made it more of a luxury than plain old accommodation. The barn was well equipped with modern kit and the owners provided a nice welcome.

Perfect! peaceful and beautiful place to stay

The location is in lovely friendly village where we were made to feel very welcome. The Sheep Shed was wonderful with great Hot tub, Sauna and Pool Table. The outside space was lovely we came away to relax and that is what we did sitting by the fish pond listening to the waterfall. Upper House has other cottages and a games barn but it was peaceful and quiet. There was nothing we could fault, Robert and Betty Lou were fantastic hosts, we so enjoyed our chats. Julie was very helpful and nothing seemed to much trouble. We enjoyed it so much that we tried to extend our holiday sadly it was booked. The local area was very pretty lovely church, beautiful walks and welcoming inns and pubs. We hope to go back very soon.


We found The Old Sheep Shed to suit our needs completely. We were a group of 6 adults, so the 3 rooms and 3 bathrooms were excellent. The fish pond was a lovely feature and the fish were well fed with the pellets provided. The hot tub was a greatly used. The kitchen and dining area was well equipped and user friendly. Overall, really could not find fault with anything.

Excellent accommodation

We stayed at the Old Sheep Shed for a week in August 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The standard of the 'shed' was excellent, very clean and comfortable. The hot tub was a particular success as were the play barns on site. The fish were kept well fed and we enjoyed our regular visits from Millie the dog as well as the cats. We would definitely return and recommend it to others.

Highly recommended

We had a great time at the old sheep shed and it was perfect for my son who has mobility problems too. Not only is there a hot tub, pool table, and sauna for sole use, but also the kids can also enjoy Jimmys play barn and the indoor badminton court area with wooden play area which was a real hit for my boys. Will definitely be returning - wonderful place.

A lovely cottage, fab hot tub

We spent a week at the old sheep shed, the cottage is lovely, well situated with excellent facilities. The hot tub was very clean and used every day. We didn't use the sauna, but it looked very clean. All the rooms were spotless and well furnished. The living area had comfortable furniture. The kitchen was well equipped and very clean. It is part of an ongoing development which meant that there was access to a family orientated games room and a barn with a badminton court. Every one we met was very nice and helpful and a minor issue with the hot water was dealt with quickly and cheerfully. A really good location and a perfect home from home, we went as 4 adults, the old sheep shred would be ideal for a family. We would recommend it.

A brillant week, very relaxing

Just had a week in the Shepshed, with my better half and another couple, absolutely superb. So clean, the layout, the pool table, the sauna, the hot tub, everything was spot on. The venue, so relaxing, great to look at open fields or watch the fish. The location, its the countryside at its best, perfect location for villages, towns, and country. The pub food was spot on. \e will be going there again. Robert & betty looked after us, and my misses fell in love with the cat & dogs, great week.

Absolutely fantastic

Have to say this place was amazing. Extremely high standard, well maintained, owners couldn't be more helpful or friendly. An entire week of relaxing and unwinding with no streetlights and no external noise. Even the animals were friendly - farm dog moved in with us for most of the week. Will definitely be making a return visit

Absolutely Perfect

Robert, Betty Lou, James and Millie were absolutely brilliant during our stay there last bank holiday weekend. We had the cabin booked for a week but even though we stayed only over the weekend, we felt it was worth it. They have created a little piece of paradise, far away from everything with its own hot tub (which was the main attraction for us, initially), steam room and pool table. The surrounding countryside was beautiful and the walks were lovely. A pleasurable, relaxing stay if you want to get away from it all.

Perfect in every way

This cottage was great value for money and absolutely beautiful. We were attracted to this particular cottage by the hot tub but the pool table and sauna were also welcome additions! All of the rooms were beautifully decorated to a high standard and there was plenty of space for us all. There were local walks and it was easy to find. The owners and their pets were extremely welcoming and accommodating, everything we needed was there. I will definitely visit again and will recommend to all my friends, I just hope they don't put the price up!!

Many places claim to have it all this place delivers!!!

Me and my partner and a couple of good friends stayed at the Old Sheep Shed at the end of November, all we can say was this place was amazing, the weather was cold and snow on the ground which made the setting even better. The accomodation as a whole is amazing the pictures dont do this place justice. The underfloor heating is a joy along with all the luxuries that have been listed. The only thing that is better than the accomodation was the people that owned it Mr & Mrs Davies couldnt of been more helpful and friendly. Many places claim to have it all and some do but this little hidden gem is not only top grade accomodation but very well priced too. If you are a couple or a family looking for a relaxing place to stay with excellent hosts then dont look any further. We will be certainly coming back again next year and many years to come 5 stars all round.


Good location, very friendly owners, who took the time to explain all facilities, only small problem was a small fridge freezer, if staying for longer than a week ( which we would do next time ) might be a problem, but owners did say they would put items in their freezer for us. Overall a great place to stay, even better in the Summer

I consider this to be one of the best Self Catering Cottages in the country

The Old Sheep Shed is a wonderful conversion which has been well thought out, is superbly maintained and provides every comfort. Mr & Mrs Davies are the perfect hosts. We have stayed in many award winning cottages over the past few years and The Old Sheep Shed warrants a place among the best. All fixtures and fittings are of lovely quality. The private hot tub is top of the range and the landscaped garden (which is beautifully lit at night) frames the large pond well stocked with carp and goldfish provides a relaxing backdrop. A sauna is available in one of the bathrooms or you may prefer a game of pool in the comfy games room. All in all a lovely break.
