“Handy little self contained accommodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stayed in the self contained wing of the establishment. For a few days it is perfect, but no longer as there is only a microwave/convection oven, fridge and some crockery and cutlery. Enough to do breakfast or simple evening meal. There is a bedroom with a lovely king size bed, lounge area and bathroom. All clean and well presented. Heated floor so never cold.
We took our dog so bowl and throw was provided.
Across the road is access to the Mere and lovely walks, however that also came with geese that crossed the road and crapped all around our car! The other downside is the building is on the main road with quite a bit of traffic.
The town is quite nice, but the only bad thing I could say is we found none of the pubs which had food allowed the dog in.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2011

I stayed at this B&B for one night, in no4 The Hayloft. The room has been recently refurbished and has a small kitchen (microwave not hob), sink, kettle and all the plates and cups you might need. There is also a small fridge.
The bathroom is a wetroom, but, unlike others I have used did not flood the whole of the bathroom.
As well as the bed there is a table, two fold up chairs and two tub chairs for relaxin in front of the port hole window. All in all a very pleasant place.
The Hayloft does sit close to the main road and before seven o'clock the road was quite busy but not noisy. After seven there was very little traffic and I had a good nights sleep on the comfortable bed.
The owner was really good and offered me alternatives to the normal breakfast arrangements when I said I had to leave early the following morning.
Ellesmere is about 20 minutes from Wrexham and you cross the border on the way. It is around 30 minutes or so from Shrewsbury on a good road.
The farm has a great car park with secure storage and is opposite the lake which looked lovelly.

Room Tip: Take time to walk around the lake and to the BoatHouse.
