Self catering at it's best

  • 4 of 5

This is a gem of a property in a secluded spot in South Shropshire. The barn is beautifully appointed and very comfortable, the views from the balcony are stunning. The owner, Martyn, is friendly and dealt with my emails promptly and efficiently. He is happy to share his local knowledge and pointed us in the right direction re walks and restaurants when asked. My only comment would be that if there are 4 people staying in the barn then crockery is in short supply I suggest that a few more plates cups etc are added to save people on holiday having to wash up endlessly. If you love the countryside but want facilities within easy reach and lots of places to visit then I recommend Ineff Barn 100%

summer retreat

  • 3 of 5

a pleasant barn building -great beds and lovely veranda with views over fields. lovely village with two good pubs and excellent indian restaurant.

would probably only recommend the barn for the summer months.

parking rather tight for two cars.

Owner's Response: Owner response: We would like to point out that there are 4 pubs in the village, an Indian Restaurant, two Chinese Restaurants and a fish and chip shop; plus a bakery, Co-op and chemist, etc. The Barn is open all year round and different times of year appeal to different people and their activities, other self catering accommodation in this area is also advertised for all year round usage. There is parking for 5 cars and 2 of those are allocated to the Barn. These are the first guests to come with 2 cars and they may have found it slightly inconvenient parking one in front of the other. Although we do not claim to be 5 star, all our other guests visiting the Owners Direct site and others we advertise with have voted us 5 star. we believe we provide excellent accommodation at a reasonable price and on this occasion just £13.57 per person per night.

Ineff Barn holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday was our first using Owners Direct and we chose Ineff barn as a central base to visit nearby NT and EH sites. We found the Cottage excellent with everything in place for our needs with a pleasant welcome from the owner. We have no hesitation recommending this property at all.
