Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Buttercups Haybarn, Whitchurch, Shropshire, sleeps 10 in 6 bedrooms.

Buttercups Haybarn at Alkington Grange Barns is a superb 5 star family friendly detached barn which offers spacious living accommodation and socialising space, ideal for larger families or groups of friends. We are a family-focused venue set in a beautiful rural setting. Sorry not suitable for Stag parties. Pamper/Hen parties are welcome.

This Georgian hay barn has been newly converted in 2016 into a spectacular 6 bedroomed holiday cottage. The interior has been lovingly restored keeping the impressive oak trusses and beams, along with the original brick pillars, which creates a wonderful luxurious atmosphere.

The barn has incredible views looking directly out across a picturesque wildlife pond and then on across the farmland, looking over into Cheshire and Wales. These views can be admired through the full length windows. Relax and enjoy watching the rich wildlife outside, whilst relaxing inside. A truly beautiful holiday cottage.

The ground floor offers open plan living space incorporating living, dining and kitchen areas, with tiled or laminate floors and French doors leading to the patio area.

The first floor, complete with beams, offers a total of 6 bedrooms, accessed via 2 separate staircases. There are 2 doubles with en suite facilities, a twin and 2 single bedrooms, along with 2 further family bathrooms.

Oil central heating, electricity, bed linen, towels and WiFi are included. A travel cot, highchair and stair gate are available on request.

The enclosed garden has a sitting area and garden furniture. There is private parking for 4 cars, and a bike store.
