3 bedroomed 250yr old barn private hot tub swimming pool

Family-friendly Wirral holiday home in Moreton with indoor pool
Of the three Barnacre cottages, ‘The Shippon’ is the one designed especially with children in mind. Its three bedrooms – one single and two double – sleep 5/8 people.

Simply furnished, this toasty warm cottage nevertheless has everything needed for a very comfortable stay at any time of the year. And while the cottage’s rustic fittings will ease anxieties over children’s capacity for boisterousness, it quirkiness will delight.

Many of the original features of the ancient barn have been preserved; much timbering is exposed and the owl flight holes and archers' windows are preserved and snugly glazed, giving the bedrooms a unique charm. The atmosphere is completed with flagstone flooring and a woodburning stove downstairs and oak floors upstairs.

Ideal for all times of year with full double glazing, gas central heating and woodburner
Two luxurious bathrooms (one ensuite) with solid granite tiling and showers
Two double bedrooms (one with ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe)
One single bedroom with pull out extra bed
Additional double sofa bed in the living room.
Cosy lounge with TV & DVD, woodburner and beamed ceiling

Hot tub and pool were great nothing bad to say.

1/5 Terrible

So misleading
Property makes out it has a private swimming pool which is not the case not only is it a shared pool but you have to book a time slot which I didn’t say anywhere when making booking and to top it off the pool is not anywhere near the property but 5 min down to round on a different property was a lovely cottage but not worth what I paid as didn’t get what I paid for

Wonderful base and beautifully presented. Perfect for our family break. We would definitely book a revisit in the future. The new Turkish restaurant nearby is an added bonus to the break!

5/5 Excellent

Great place to stay
Stayed here for two nights, 8 ladies ranging from 7 months to 85 years and a little dog. Pictures do it no justice, it’s much bigger than it looks. Very clean & inviting, lovely to have tea coffee and a bottle of Prosecco on arrival! Under floor heating was wonderful. Slight issue with the en suite shower (needs a screen) and the tap but besides that it was great. Hot tub was fab, lovely and clean and sheltered away so felt nice and private. Lovely back garden would be lovely to sit out in the summer. Beds really comfy, great to also have a downstairs toilet. Also lovely to see a real wood burning fire but never got the chance to use it! The pool didn’t look as clean and inviting as it does on the pictures but never the less we enjoyed using it it was a welcome bonus. The pub virtually next door was great too brilliant value and good quality food. Area is lovely, feels rural but not far from lots of lovely places to visit, nearby to shops & eateries too. Would definitely recommend and visit again.
