The Stables

Sleeps 7

The Stables

The Stables is a two storey modern barn conversion on the other side of the courtyard from The Old Shippon & Churn cottage  what it lacks in panoramic views which the other cottages have it more than makes up for in size, style and en-suite bedrooms with many guests comments being “I could live here”.

As you walk into The Stables to the left on the ground floor is a large bright airy double bedroom with exposed beams, vaulted ceiling and a sliding door leading to a wet room which has a large walk in shower area, W/C with adjacent hand basin, grab rails and a large wall-hung basin. A wheeled shower chair or shower stool is available if needed as well as door ramp, bed risers, commode and a walking frame.

Also on the ground floor is a large fully fitted kitchen/diner with a big farmhouse table easily seating 8, a 50/50 fridge freezer, electric oven & hob, a full sized dishwasher, microwave and washing machine.  An open sandstone doorway leads you into the comfortable living room which has double doors leading onto the patio area with garden furniture & charcoal BBQ.  All of the ground floor is on one level and has underfloor heating.

The first floor is accessed from stairs in the living room and has a large triple bedroom with double & single bed, a family bathroom which has a bath and overhead shower, WC and sink unit and a king room with en-suite shower room.

World Heritage Sites

We feel extremely lucky to live close to two of the thirty-two UNESCO world heritage sites in the UK –
Ironbridge – otherwise known as the birth place of the Industrial revolution is the closest just 20 minutes from our holiday cottages.  A visit to the Ironbridge Gorge tells the story of the Darby family and how Abraham Darby I developed the production technique of smelting iron with coke and there began the great 18th century industrial revolution.  There are 10 award-winning hands-on attractions to visit where you can a taste of what life was like back then.   At Blist Hill Victorian town you can meet some almost real Victorians and visit their shops and cottages, explore the Victorian pharmacy, school, candle maker and post office see what a trip to the dentist would have been like.  Enginuity is full of interactive exhibits, paint a tile at the Jackfield tile museum or visit the Darby family homes to see how the other half lived during the 18th & 19th centuries.  Don’t forget to take a walk across the world-famous Ironbridge built in 1779 by Abraham Darby III and spans the river Severn.
Pontcysyllte Aqueduct  -  Just an hour’s drive away you will find one of the most remarkable achievements of the industrial revolution.  You may want to hold your breath as you take a walk or canal boat ride across the UK’s longest & highest aqueduct.  Pontcysyllte is a pioneering masterpiece of Thomas Telford and William Jessop.  The eighteen arched stone and cast-iron structure carries the Llangollen canal across the river Dee, don’t forget your camera as you will want to capture the amazing views.
