Finnish Barbeque Cabin
A new exciting addition to Goosefoot Barn Cottages is our amazing BBQ cabin. It looks a little like a Hobbit’s house but with seating for up to about 15 people around a central BBQ. It’s great fun for families and groups alike. We provide everything you need including the fuel except of course for the food and drink – that’s down to you! We even do the washing up! It’s an experience not to be missed.
Situated in our own valley means that we have almost no light pollution. When the sky is clear the stars are truly magical. Sitting out on the decking outside the barbeque cabin is really quite stunning and something to be remembered.
Landscapes and Viewpoints
Although nestled in our own valley the views all around are beautiful. A short walk up a grassy slope leads to views across the Corvedale towards Ludlow and the Clee Hills. In the opposite direction up a farm track there are stunning views across to Flounders Folly, Wenlock Edge and the Long Mynd.
Trails and Tours
There are so many lovely places to visit in South Shropshire without travelling for miles.
Take a tour to Ludlow, a beautiful market town with so much to offer. Explore the ruins of the best example of a fortified castle in the area and sample local produce from the almost daily markets. On the way you could stop at the Ludlow Food Centre for a cream tea in their café or explore the well stocked farm shop.
Don’t miss out on Craven Arms. The Secret Hills Discovery Centre is intriguing in itself but located with superb walks and trails – some along the riverbank with fleeting glimpses of kingfishers if you’re lucky. Take in the Land of Lost Content Museum for a real glimpse back to the recent and not so recent past or stroll along to Stokesay Castle a gorgeous fortified manor house next to it’s own church and a newly opened café.
Further long the A49 is Church Stretton, nestled in the heart of the Shropshire Hills. Whilst here take time to enjoy Cardingmill Valley and the Long Mynd, enjoy the Antiques marketand the 13th century church located near the market square. From Church Stretton take the shuttle bus on a tour around Stiperstones National Nature reserve and visit the lead mine and The Bog Centre. Take a side trip to Acton Scott Farm just South of Church Stretton featured in the BBC show Victorian Farm.
Be sure to include a trip to the lovely market town of Much Wenlock, the birthplace of the modern Olympic Games and the home of Wenlock Priory.
There are so many walks of varying distances that you can do right from the front door of your cottage at Goosefoot Barn. Whether it’s a 15 minute amble down the valley to the local pub or several miles across to Westhope and onto Wenlock Edge and beyond it’s up to you. Stunning views await in all directions. Use our range of maps and walking booklets and guides to find one that suits you.
