More about The Hayloft

Sleapford is a quiet hamlet tucked away on the eastern side of Shrewsbury, near to Wellington and Telford. It holds an enviable position central to all areas of Shropshire, with open countryside views and great road networks nearby, making it the perfect base from which to enjoy a luxury break. Perfect for up to five guests, this detached property is consistently furnished throughout with quality fabrics, oak and Mexican terracotta tile flooring, a marble tile bathroom and a well-equipped kitchen. Externally, the property has ample parking and a private decked area on which to enjoy a delicious meal cooked on the gas fired barbecue. Stroll around the owners' 6-acre grounds to see the wildlife and visit the alpacas.
The Hayloft is within the grounds of Sleapford Farm, which was part of the Duke of Sutherland Lilleshall Estate and dates back to the late 18th century/early 19th century. James Loch, Land Agent for the Duke of Sutherland, made improvements to many of the cottages and farms on the Lilleshall Estate around 1820 and the surrounding land (The Weald Moors) was also extensively drained at this time. The Hayloft was originally the old brick built cowshed to Sleapford Farm with The Hayloft above and had stalls with tyings and mangers for 4 cows and it is thought it dates back to around 1820 when James Loch made these improvements. It was sympathetically renovated and extended by the existing owners in 2008 when the oak timber frame section was added to the original brick building on the footprint of what had been a corrugated iron extension to the original cowshed with stalls and tyings for a further 8 cows.
There are many attractions to explore nearby including RAF Cosford, Ironbridge Gorge Museums and Blists Hill Victorian Town. The lavish country house and gardens at Weston Park are worth a visit, along with Wroxeter Roman City and Vineyards, Attingham Park and Acton Scott Historic Working Farm. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy a trip up The Wrekin for some wonderful views over the surrounding area.
The Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is home to the National Trust's Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd. Ludlow, as well as being renowned for foodies, has a castle and racecourse plus numerous festivals year round. The medieval town of Shrewsbury is looped by the River Severn where guests can enjoy a boat ride, and the theatre sits proudly on the banks. There is also a selection of activities available nearby including mountain boarding, clay shooting, archery, quad trekking, high ropes and mountain biking. Shropshire is also bordered by Staffordshire, Herefordshire and Mid Wales, and all of these areas are ideal for day trips. Train and bus station 3½ miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.|
