Award Winning Farm Accomodation in Shrewsbury

Three of the four destinations listed in The Telegraph ‘British farm stays: four of the best’ are members of award-winning farm accommodation organisation Farm Stay UK. 

The Telegraph’s choice includes: Nettlecombe Farm on the Isle of Wight “an excellent choice for those wanting to explore the island by car, foot or bike”, Upper Shadymoor in Shrewsbury, “a beautiful farm, which dates from the 13th century” and Cwmcrwth Farm in Carmarthenshire, “guests can do everything from lending a hand with feeding and mucking out, collecting eggs and taking the goats for a walk to pig-keeping courses and farmhouse pork curing.”

Farm Stay has more than 100 members offering five star self-catering or bed & breakfast accommodation and 80% of Farm Stay UK accommodation is graded four stars or above.  Liz Morris of Nettlecombe Farm on the Isle of Wight explained: “We love Nettlecombe Farm, it has been our family home for over 100 years and we’re incredibly proud of what we can offer guests. Holidays and short breaks are special to everyone so we ensure that we extend a very warm welcome to make guests feel like it is their home when they are staying with us. It’s great to have this recognised by The Telegraph Travel.” 
Andy Woodward, Chief Executive of Farm Stay UK comments, “From beautiful period cottages by the coast to modern converted pigsties with luxurious spas – farm holidays are keeping up the standards and pushing the boundaries as far as rural holidays are concerned – countryside holidays still have the peace and quiet, they still have long walks and gorgeous local food but they now also have much more to offer.”
