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.
