About Threshing Barn

A converted brick and timber barn on the Attingham Park Estate

Built at Smethcote Farm in the 1700s, the Threshing Barn is now a comfortable countryside retreat for six people.

The hallway leads to an open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting room area with a double-height ceiling, exposed brick walls and a woodburning stove. There’s one double bedroom with an en suite shower on the ground level. The first of two staircases leads into the first-floor double bedroom with an en suite shower. The second staircase takes you to the mid-level family bathroom and then up again to a twin bedroom.  

Outside, the barn shares a large walled garden with the Smethcote Barn next door. There is a lawn as well as a wildflower meadow to support local wildlife. Two Dutch barns, built around 1900, provide some shelter and shade. Within the garden, Threshing Barn has a screened private seating area including a fire pit which has a barbecue grill.  

There are a great many walks on the estate and the national cycle route is on the barn’s doorstep. You’ll have free entry to Attingham Park’s Regency Mansion, Walled Garden, Deer Park and Field of Play, as well as other National Trust properties in the area. Attingham’s Carriage House Café, Stables Shop and second-hand bookshop are open every day.

The village of Atcham and local pubs are 3 miles away, with the vibrant town of Shrewsbury a 15-minute drive. Close by, there are canals, the river Severn and Tern, great Shropshire walks, and attractions including Wroxeter Roman City and World Heritage Site Ironbridge Gorge.

Larger groups can also book neighbouring Smethcote Barn which sleeps four people.

Notes for guests

Access: We are still waiting for an accessibility guide for this property, it should be available shortly. Please be aware the main entry door into the property is low, so care needs to be taken going in and out.

Heating: ​Air source heat pump with underfloor heating throughout. A woodburning stove is provided in the open plan room in the seating area.

Parking: The parking area is at the front the barns and there are at least three spaces available for the Threshing Barn. There is a shared electric vehicle charging point.

Garden: There is a very large walled garden at the rear of the property. The garden is open with the holiday cottage next door, but there is a dividing fence part way up the garden, so that they each have their own private section. There is a private external seating area with fire pit near to the barn.

Wifi: We are pleased to provide free WiFi at this cottage which is supported by BT. Please note that intermittent connection problems can sometimes occur so it should not be relied upon.  

Offers: Holiday cottage guests have free access to Attingham during opening hours. Guests will benefit from a late Sunday checkout of 4pm. 

Please note: There are two private homes across from the barns’ parking area, and free-range chickens and other birds often roam the lane.

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 (stated on the cottage's webpage). 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.
