Situated in the heart of this small and quintessentially 'olde-English' town of Much Wenlock, 'End Barn' provides fine quality accommodation within an easy walk of the towns historic attractions. With numerous medieval buildings, pubs and restaurants, there's much to see and do before even wandering further afield to explore the rest of Shropshire.

End Barn itself is a recently converted 17th Century barn and sleeps up to 3 people, perfect for a couple or small family.

The property is entered from the side of the building where a private parking space allows for ease of unloading your luggage and keep the cars off-road in an otherwise popular tourist part of town, so there's never a worry about getting parked at anytime of the day.

At the rear of the cottage, double french doors lead to the newly fitted kitchen and dining room. The kitchen is very well equipped with 4 ring gas burning hob, grill and oven. The matching kitchenwares include toaster, microwave, kettle and tea and coffee pots. Plus there's also washing machine for guests staying for longer holidays. The open plan dining room boasts views over the garden and to the field beyond. The hallway leads through to the lounge, with inglenook fireplace and an electric 'log burning stove' effect fire. The flatscreen TV comes with an integrated DVD player.

Upstairs, the two bedrooms, one double and one single room, are both dressed with fine quality linen and complete with their own shower rooms.

Outside, the garden is shared with the owners who live next door, which you are most welcome to enjoy at your leisure. Garden chairs are provided on your own small patio area for you to enjoy the most pleasant outlook.

Situated just a short 10 minute drive from the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ironbridge Gorge, End Barn is ideally located for exploring Shropshire. Home to a number of iconic castles and famous stately homes, Shropshire has much to offer with the county offering many historic places of interest.

Walkers are spoiled for choice too with Wenlock Edge beginning from the town and thus from your own front door if you choose.

From here it's all-year-round walking country with The Stretton Hills and the ever popular Long Mynd – a whaleback ridge of multiple summits and valleys. Further afield The Stiperstones and south Shropshire hills provide endless routes for all abilities.

For a rainy day, Telford Shopping Centre with it's many high street stores are all under one roof whilst for something a little more traditional, Shrewsbury, which is a 15 minute drive away offers a wide range of independent shops.
