About Sandybury Barn

In a secluded spot in the Shropshire countryside, this unique holiday cottage is perfect for family and friends to gather and enjoy.

Set against a landscape of ancient woodland, conifer plantations and brimming pools, Dudmaston is a large working estate which stretches across 3,000 acres of park and woodland. With plenty of paths and trails, put your walking shoes on or hop on a bike and discover all that Dudmaston has to offer.

Sandybury Barn is a rustic but contemporary holiday cottage that’s nestled in the rolling hills of the Shropshire countryside. Its double-height windows and open-plan living area create a light and spacious place to relax. There’s also built-in accessibility, so every need is catered for, with a wheelchair-friendly bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor and kitchen with accessible features.

With three more bedrooms upstairs, there’s plenty of room for all the family. If you’re lucky, you might also get to meet some feathered house guests, as we have an owl box on site with a spy cam so you can see if anyone is home. You can also indulge in a bit of nature watching from the mezzanine, looking out through the barn’s original entrance. On dark winter nights you can snuggle in front of the woodburner in the living room and on long summer evenings you can enjoy meals al fresco in your own private garden, with seated area and BBQ.

If you want to bring a bike on which to explore the Dudmaston Estate, there is a bike rack in the open cart shed next door, so you can safely store your cycle under cover. You won’t be short of things to see and do on your stay. The varied habitat of Dudmaston encourages an abundance of different wildlife, from its resident birds to water voles, otters and dragonflies. Sandybury Barn is only a short drive to Wenlock Edge and the Long Mynd, both give lots of opportunities to walk through beautiful Shropshire countryside.

You can also uncover the history of Dudmaston Hall, a much-loved 17th-century family home. Venture around the traditional rooms from the panelled entrance hall to the sunlit library with stunning views over the garden and Big Pool. Discover the stories of the family and workers on the estate both past and present.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
