About the property

Barn on Lyth Hill, Nr. Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England - Idyllic Peaceful Hillside Location. Good Touring Base, 10 Mins From Shrewsbury

Built in 1840, this tasteful barn conversion whilst retaining its original characters like the wooden beams, has all the modern facilities expected to a high standard such as four poster bed, spa bath, central heating, TV/DVD, telephone, WIFI, ample private parking in wall courtyard, iron gas stove and a fully equipped modern kitchen. Honeymoons, anniversaries, touring/walking or just a 'getaway' break - whatever the reason we provide a warm, friendly service helping you make the most of your stay. Complimentary wine and flowers are provided. The idyllic peaceful hillside location (no neighbours!) provides a perfect quiet retreat with walks and some of the best viewpoints in Shropshire literally a few minutes walk away. It is a great touring base for the rest of Shropshire with its central location in the county, just off the A5/A49 and 5 minutes drive from historic Shrewsbury.

About Glyn Passant

Hello I'm Glyn and I live in Shropshire in England. A semi retired farmer and seasoned traveller I now spend most of my free time in Montenegro. I have great passion and knowledge of both areas which I am keen to share with my guests and have done since 2004..

Why Glyn Passant chose Shropshire

Yews Barn has been in the family for many generations.

It was converted into a holiday let in 2003 and has been a great success.

Situated on Lyth Hill it has a peaceful and secluded location with great views.

What makes this barn unique

Private location with no immediate neighbours. Deer in the adjacent fields. Direct access to Lyth Hill country park.

Delightful and cosy.

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to find Yews Barb beautifully presented and in a fabulous location for exploring Shropshire. The barn is very clean and cosy and has great views across a field of deer to far reaching countryside. Yews Barn offered everything we were hoping for. A great find !
