Wassell Barn is listed in affiliation with Rural Retreats.
Overlooking the picturesque hills and valleys of Shropshire, in a green and pastoral open space, Wassell Barn looks out over the quant and verdant landscape which walkers and artists have flocked to for centuries. Converted from a barn just three years ago, Wassell Barn can sleep six guests in understated comfort, across its three bedrooms, all of which enjoy a private en suite bathroom.
The house itself is airy and high-ceilinged, with exposed, whitewashed structural beams, and high-quality wooden flooring throughout. Architecturally, the layout of Wassell Barn stays true to its agricultural origins, with two wings coming out from a substantial central hall. Aesthetically, the decor is Scandinavian in its clean finishes and pared back pallet. The furniture is contemporary and elegant, and the house abounds with high-quality artisanal timber fittings.
Guests can expect a lodge-style house raised high above the beautiful valley below, with expansive lawns surrounding the house. By arranging the accommodation across the one floor, the architects have ensured that each room benefits from a ceiling which creates a sense of elegance and tranquility. The recent conversion manages to marry rural, farmhouse-style architecture with sleek, contemporary design.
The central space in Wassell Barn is the living and dining room, a multi-function space finished in gleaming white walls and high-end timber, with strong, bold grains. A breakfast bar divides the well-equipped kitchen facilities from the living and dining space, where six can sit down to eat together after a long day walking in Herefordshire and Shropshire.
The bedrooms each have their own distinctive character, with original artwork and high-end furniture creating cleverly conceptualised spaces where guests want to spend time reading, relaxing and working, rather than just sleeping. With private bathrooms accompanying each double bedroom, this is the ideal getaway for groups of couples or larger families looking to take a mini-break in the world-renowned topography and historic local towns of the Hereford-Shropshire border.
The dazzling beauty of this area has long been popular with birdwatchers, artists and outdoors enthusiasts, keen to explore the hills and forests, but the untouched and historic towns and villages nearby have recently become a magnet for couples and groups looking to learn about the region’s rich and extensive history. Well preserved pubs and village buildings dating back several hundreds of years are increasingly common destinations for travellers from all over the UK and beyond.
Only one well behaved dog is permitted.
