The Cart Shed is a charming barn conversion that has been refurbished to an exceptional standard while still retaining its original charm and character.

A luxury country retreat for up to four people, The Cart Shed is a barn conversion on the Downton Estate, a magnificent stretch of countryside that straddles the hills of the Shropshire and Herefordshire border. The single-storey accommodation has a spacious kitchen, dining and sitting room with a wood-burning stove, with access to the patio area and the views of the rolling countryside. Both double bedrooms are also en-suite.

Stay at the Cart Shed and you really will feel like you’re getting away from it all. The 5,000-acre Downton Estate is magical, and the River Teme cuts a deep limestone gorge through the beautiful landscape. There are lots of charming village and market towns to explore in the area, including Ludlow, world-famous for its excellent restaurants.
