Manor Holding Byre

Wyre Forest, DY12 0XX.

2 Star - Visit England
Manor Holding Byre Self Catering Cottage, Wyre Forest is a sympathetically converted, Grade II Listed, small mixed stone and brick barn dating from the Victorian period or earlier, whose historic charm is enhanced by traditional brick detailing to the walls, external stone stair, exposed King Post style oak roof beams, and brick paved floor. The Byre is elegantly proportioned and built of hand made brick of an almost glowing, naturally mottled warm orange colour, well over a century ago on the foundations of a previous stone building. It forms an integral part of this Grade II Listed group of farm buildings and is fully protected under that designation.

The Byre is naturally warm and full of sunlight, as all the numerous windows have high performance double glazing, and walls and roof are well insulated. Seemingly randomly positioned windows punctuate the west gable, flooding the interior with light each evening. White painted walls, and invisible under-floor central heating throughout reinforce the light and warmth.

It faces in two directions, south onto the parking yard, and north into an ancient orchard, with views over a small rural valley to the rear. The medieval parish boundary hedge follows the seasonal stream in the bottom of this valley.

Upstairs the Byre has one twin bedroom overlooking the old ridgeway long distance footpath (Abberley and Malvern Hills Geopark Way). This bedroom is accessed via an external stone stair.

Downstairs there is a full height living room, with kitchenette and wetroom shower/toilet off. It has been restored using appropriate materials including matched handmade brick, natural stone, green oak and old clay tiles, in keeping with it?s original character. Handmade oak casement windows and doors complement the style of the original adjacent cottage windows. While the 'upcycled' stripped pine shower room door is original to the cottage.

Smoking: We ask that guests refrain from smoking inside the Byre.
Manor Holding Byre is located on the Shropshire Worcestershire border, in the middle of the Wyre Forest, half way between Bewdley and Cleobury Mortimer. 22 miles (36km) west by southwest of central Birmingham.
