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! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ (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 ๐Ÿ™‚. We’re spending six nights here and aim to cover as much of the local area as time (and our legs) will allow! ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 18โ„ƒ 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 (๐Ÿ˜ฒ) but the WiFi is a bit like me these days (slowish but stable and reliable!). ๐Ÿ˜‚

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 โ€“ 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! ๐Ÿ‘ 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!
