A planning application to transform an existing log cabin into a self-catering holiday unit has been given the go-ahead.

The log cabin, at Hollies Farm, Ellesmere was previously used as a temporary cabin for a equestrian/agri-business, but now owners would like to see it listed on AirBnB, and be used by holiday-makers.

In the design and access documents, applicants Mr and Mrs Titley said they would just need to re-decorate, fit new carpets and furnish it to an appropriate standard.

They will also be on hand to clean the accommodation, provide basic amenities and deal with customers' needs for the duration of their stay.

It is also a possibility to offer the farm's equestrian facilities which includes a indoor arena, stables and grazing. This would allow owners to bring their horses on holiday with them and explore the area on horseback.

The accommodation would then be run in conjunction with the British Horse Society (BHS) 'Horses Welcome B & B' scheme.

The single-storey timber cabin has four bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and dining room. It is fenced off from the rest on the land and has its own landscaped garden.

will have separate storage and collection of recyclable waste adjacent to the farm buildings.

Three extra parking spaces are required, two for cars and one for light goods vehicles or public carrier vehicles.

Sewage will be disposed of by a septic tank and will connect through the existing drainage system. The development will not have any impact on trees, highway safety or nearby properties.

Mr and Mrs Titley added: "There is no similar accommodation within the immediate local area, so the proposed development would contribute to the range and availability of quality, relatively low cost accommodation within the Ellesmere area and contribute to the local economy through visitor spending at local businesses."
