Nestling within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of rural Shropshire Bryncalled Barns is an ideal base for exploring Shropshire and the Marches.

Created from our dream of converting a series of old redundant farm buildings, Bryncalled Barns offers four delightful Grade II listed self-catering barn accommodation full of character and tradition with all the comforts of home. Overlooking a pretty courtyard the barns have plenty of room for parking and are situated close at hand to the owner's barn giving you the opportunity to seek information about the area if and when required. Each property has been renovated to a very high standard and retains a wealth of original timbers including beams and trusses, exposed brickwork and stonework and keeps a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Bryncalled Barns is situated approximately 2 miles from the rustic village of Bucknell, with its village pubs, Post office, Convenience Store, traditional butchers and petrol station. The Heart of Wales railway line also passes through Bucknell with destinations such as Church Stretton, known as "Little Switzerland" and the medieval town of Shrewsbury. For those interested in walking, the railway also offers a one day 'rover' allowing you to get on and off the train as it rambles its way through the Welsh valleys, the "Sugar Loaf" in the Black Mountains and finally Swansea.

Nearby is the welsh market town of Knighton, which is home to the Offa's Dyke Heritage Centre, long distance path and the Space Guard Centre for space enthusiasts. Ludlow has a harmonious mix of architecture and its 11th century castle provides the perfect backdrop to its famous Michelin star restaurants, food fairs and various festivals including its annual Shakespearean inspired Ludlow Festival. The quaint village of Clun is very picturesque with its unspoilt country setting, with its hill top castle ruins and river flowing through the valley. Also of interest is a visit to Acton Scott working farm as featured in the recent BBC2 television series 'Victorian Farm'.
