Shropshire

A hen party retreat to beat all others!

Introducing Orchard Barn, a hen party retreat to beat all others! Near to the famous market town of Ludlow and walking distance to the lovely local pub, Orchard Barn is one of three beautiful holiday barns nestled on the grounds of a 2,000-acre estate where guests are welcome to walk and take in the stunning surrounding Shropshire countryside. Ludlow has many things to offer - from walking the streets of this historic town and visiting the castle and St Laurence's Church, to a meal at one of Ludlow's restaurants. Ludlow is also noted for the many events and festivals that take place, from the annual Medieval Christmas Fayre and the famed Food and Drink Festival. You will find plenty of things happening to keep your hens entertained! If you opt to stay in there is a shared swimming pool and tennis court, and a large garden, together creating a majestic hen party backdrop.
