Cruckbarn is a unique and special place to stay – a luxury self-catering holiday cottage, in a quiet secluded woodland, close to Ludlow, perfectly situated for walking in Herefordshire, Shropshire and the Welsh Hills.
A mezzanine master bedroom has a king-sized bed, and a second bedroom has a double and single bed. Cruckbarn is perfect for families up to 5, couples or small groups of friends.
A recently converted oak-framed barn, it is positioned on a hilltop, with beautiful views out over the valley. Toasting marshmallows around the outdoor fire-pit is a must, and the dark skies make star-gazing on clear nights a fantastic experience.
We have constructed almost every part of Cruckbarn ourselves. We have tried to create a quality, eco-friendly holiday home, using as many local materials as possible – including oak from the surrounding woodland. Renewable energy heats the building, via a heat-pump and underfloor heating, while a beautiful Clearview wood-burner is available, with plenty of logs supplied.
The surrounding countryside is full of quiet lanes, woods, rivers, and historic places to explore, and Ludlow and the nearby villages are renowned for excellent pubs and restaurants, as well as quality local produce to buy.
