My wife and I are lucky enough to travel all over the world with our jobs, and we have had opportunity to take our family on some wonderful holidays. This summer (2018), I wanted to bring my wife and kids to my hometown of Newport, Shropshire to visit my parents. We travelled from where we live in Houston, Texas, USA, to Shropshire and stayed in the Darwin Barn at Stud Farm. I can honestly say that this was the best holiday we have ever had as a family. The accommodation was absolutely beautiful. Moreover, the location setting was truly stunning. The kids had a wonderful time playing in the grounds of the farm, and were able to take advantage of the rowing boat and kayaks provided free of charge. For my wife and I, the location was incredibly relaxing. We were able to relax while the kids had the freedom to play and explore.
The location is also a fabulous base from which to explore the beauty of Shropshire, and surrounding counties and to venue into North Wales.
We will absolutely be back to Shropshire in the future, and each time that we return we will plan to stay in either of the two barns at Stud Farm Barns.
Finally, I must complement the wonderful hosts for such a perfect stay. They were friendly, laid back, and extremely welcoming. I really can't praise them enough, and I do look forward to staying here again.
Well appointed property with large rooms and a comfortable bed. Lots to see and do locally just a few miles from the property, but a car is essential. TV and WiFi worked fine but the DVD player would not play our DVD's (lens may need to be cleaned but it was not essential for us so we did not bother with it). Altogether a quiet and relaxing stay and We would highly recommend it.
