Holiday: Shropshire (in a Shed!) – Arrival!

Reading time: 2 minutes...

Saturday, 23rd April

Continuing our holiday breaks here in the UK, this time, we’re spending time in a shed! (an ex-tractor shed that is!) courtesy of Sykes Cottages.

Located north-west of Shrewsbury, sandwiched between the A483 and the A5 in the village of Kinnerley (population just 1108!), it’s a new(ish) addition to the Sykes Cottages property portfolio, imaginatively called – yes, you guessed it – ‘The Tractor Shed‘.

Off to the Shed!

Luckily, there is no sign of any agricultural vehicles leaving plenty of room for pretty much every mod-con – including FREE use of an EV charger for the car. We’re spending six nights here and aim to cover as much of the local area as time (and our legs) will allow! 😀

5.02pm: We’ve arrived. 3871 miles on the odometer when we left Kettering just after 3pm, it’s now on 3984. It was a perfect journey – no holdups at all, with the weather, a comfy warm 18℃ and dry outside with a bonus of not much traffic on the roads at all. The A14… M6… M54… and finally the A5 all flowed very smoothly.

Layout-wise, it’s a little unusual in that the bedroom is downstairs whilst the lounge is located on the first-floor. It’s certainly been equipped to a very high standard. There is no mobile reception at all (?) but the WiFi is a bit like me these days (slowish but stable and reliable!).

It all feels very classy here and very cosy too! It’s not the largest property we’ve ever stayed in, but based on our first impressions, the conversion from a home for tractors to a home for travellers is a complete success! 👍👍

First job was to plug in the car in – simplicity itself with the charger on the front of the property. We then got unpacked and made our plans for tomorrow.

I feel a lazy evening coming on! Tomorrow having polished the National Trust cards, we’re going to visit Erdigg in Wrexham followed by Chirk Castle. See you on the other side!
