This bustling market town has a huge number of listed buildings, mostly from the Georgian period, fine restaurants, traditional inns and speciality shops.

Shrewsbury, the counties principal town is of Saxon heritage which was further developed by the Tudors. Located close to the River Severn the town is renowned for its castle, rising spires, abbey and green open parkland. It’s also the perfect place to see some wonderful medieval buildings.

The county is the epitome of the most perfect rural countryside you can find, a place that has been formed over millions of years into a tranquil landscape of rolling hills and river gorges. Speaking of which the Iron Bridge Gorge Museums are a series of museums located in the Iron Bridge Gorge near the town of Telford. It’s here that the beginning of the industrial revolution first took hold. Spanning the River Severn the outdoor and indoor museums offer a fascinating glimpse into the past.

The regions strategic location tells the tale of a turbulent past, evidenced by the hill forts, earthworks and castles which can be found throughout the Welsh borders. These include Ludlow Castle which was built in the 11th century and the Iron Age Hill Fort at Oswestry which covers some forty acres. Moreton Corbet Castle built in the 13th century was later extended in the 16th century. As well as these fascinating structures to Shropshire’s past, the county has some lovely English Heritage properties like Stokesay Castle.

Other great days out ideas include a visit to the RAF Museum at Cosford, where you can see over 70 historical aircraft housed in 3 wartime hangers including world’s oldest Spitfire and Lincoln Bomber.

    Built in 1695 by Bulkeley Mackworth on the site of a much older house inherited from his grandmother’s family, and set in a prominent location within 18 acres of parkland, the apartment [right in photograph] of this Queen Anne mansion has been restored with character and style. Still lived in by the family who built the house, Buntingsdale is mentioned in Doomsday, and other famous names connected with the manor include Lady Godiva of Coventry, the Cabot brothers and Peter Bulkely, who founded Concord, Mass. USA, because he was disappointed in not inheriting Buntingsdale! An ancient castle is still there in the earthworks below the Hall. An army camped in the hill above the house before the Battle of Shrewsbury. The land was fought over in the Civil Wars, when two Mackworths, father and son, were in turn Governors of Shrewsbury Castle; their portraits hang in the Hall. In the more recent Second World War, the Hall was used as a training ground and wireless listening station, and was only released from service in the 1960s, when it was excused from being the command centre for nuclear strikes in the West Midlands. With views to the Welsh hills over open countryside, the accommodation offered is of a very high standard, with comfort and all modern conveniences. An enormous games room with a full-sized snooker table, table tennis, darts and beer fridge allows for friendly competition in front of a roaring fire. Within the grounds lies a large lake and river frontage with rowing boat and inflatable kayak whilst guests have use of their own secluded courtyard area. There is private coarse fishing available (licence required), with basic equipment provided, and carp and trout with a jetty on the lake. There is also rough shooting (duck, licence required) and private snowdrop, daffodil and bluebell woods in season, with badgers and buzzards. For pets, an outdoor kennel is also available. The private drive is ¾-mile and children’s bikes are welcome. Bike hire is also available by arrangement with the owner. Walks start from the property and the owner also offers wellingtons and warm coats to borrow. Tours of the hall are available by arrangement with the owner, including Victorian icehouse and part tunnels, weather permitting. There is also a large formal Georgian dining room and drawing room with painted ceiling and fireplace for extra hire, and two large open fires in the drawing room and games room. The neighbouring community farm, 3 miles, has plenty of amenities including a restaurant, tea room, shop, organic butchery, walking trails, events and children’s activities. Home of the gingerbread, the attractive town of Market Drayton was once famed for its Damson Fairs, and many Draytonarians continue the tradition with damson feasts each autumn. Keen walkers can follow the trails of the famous Clive of India or the unusual bloodthirsty ‘Murder and Mayhem’ track, whilst a wild animal trail offers a rather more sedate option for the children! Market Drayton is the ideal base for touring Stoke and the Potteries, Ironbridge, Shrewsbury and North Wales. The Shropshire union canal winds it way close to the town, its tow paths, flights of locks and breathtaking aqueduct well worth a visit. Nearby you can find award-winning gardens, such as Hodnet, Wollerton Old Hall and Hawkstone Park, with its golf course and unique landscape of caves, woodland and follies. Horse riding and golf nearby. Shops and pubs 2 miles.

    Enjoying uninterrupted views over parkland towards the River Severn and Wrekin Hill, Cronkhill Farmhouse occupies a delightful elevated position on the National Trust’s Attingham Park Estate.
    This spacious, timber framed farmhouse is located in extensive and picturesque grounds including a sun trapped walled garden, fruit trees and brick apple store. Dating from the 17th century and Grade I listed, it was remodelled by John Nash, the famous Regency architect, to match the adjoining property (also National Trust and open 6 days a year).
    Cronkhill Farmhouse retains many period details, including beamed ceilings, quarry tile floors and open fireplace. Providing spacious living accommodation, well equipped farmhouse-style kitchen and large dining and entertaining space, it can sleep up to 14. Its idyllic situation combines a very convenient location, close to the bustling town of Shrewsbury and the prettiest villages of Shropshire.
    The property is especially popular with families and groups of friends, as it can be adapted to suit their individual needs, with four of the six bedrooms providing either twins or doubles. A la carte catering for special occasions and a freezer filling service are available to pre-book.

    Accommodation: Entrance hall/boot room. Large living room with open fire. Spacious dining room. Well-equipped farmhouse-style kitchen with electric range. First floor: Two double bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

Shower room with toilet. Further bathroom with over-bath shower, toilet.
    Location: A local post office, shop, gastro pub and traditional country pub are all within ½ mile of Cronkhill. The National Trust’s Attingham Park is just 1 mile away, at the centre of which is a fine Regency mansion set within a deer park designed by Humphrey Repton. There is extensive year round walking to be enjoyed here.
    This is an excellent central base from which to explore Shropshire. Shrewsbury lies 3 miles to the north, with its fine period architecture, cinemas, restaurants and excellent shopping. To the south are the spectacular Shropshire Hills and Acton Scott’s Historic Working Farm, as seen on BBC TV’s hit show Victorian Farm and a firm favourite with families. In its medieval castle setting, Ludlow provides a food paradise with Michelin star restaurants and artisan shops galore. Eight miles to the east is the World Heritage site of Ironbridge Gorge and its many museums. Three ruined abbeys and the remains of the ancient Roman city of Wroxeter are all within a 20-minute drive.
    The custodian of Cronkhill Farmhouse is Rupert Acton who helps to manage his family’s Acton Scott estate, famous for providing the film location for BBC TV’s Victorian Farm and new series, Escape in Time, presented by Ben Fogle. A thirty minute drive south of Cronkhill, three further holiday houses may be found at Acton Scott. Henley Farmhouse, sleeps up to 20, ref RJJ3; The Shooting Lodge, sleeps 8 + 3, ref RNP; and Henley Cottage, an authentic Victorian farm labourer’s cottage, sleeps 4+1, ref ROO4.

    Set on a working farm, this detached stone barn is located just 6 miles from historic Ludlow and lies on the edge of the village of Stoke St Milborough, which nestles between the Clee Hill and the Brown Clee Hills in south Shropshire, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Stoke Court farm Barn is decorated and furnished to a high standard, whilst retaining many original features including beams and stable walls. It offers beautiful family accommodation with additional facilities for disabled guests, and makes an excellent holiday base for exploring the local area.
    The 200-acre farm is a working beef and sheep farm, and within the grounds of the holiday barn is a newly discovered 17th-century formal garden with its prospect viewing mound. There is also a Sensory Garden to stimulate sound, sight, touch and smell. The latter has been developed in association with DEFRA.
    Nearby, historic Ludlow provides a wealth of interest for any visitor. John Betjeman described it as ‘the loveliest town in England’. Country Life also paid tribute, calling it ‘the most vibrant small town in the country’. It has lively markets, food fairs and speciality shops. There are many Michelin restaurants and Ludlow has rightly become known as the gastronomic capital of Shropshire. The Ludlow Marches Food and Drink Festival is held every September. The town boasts over 500 listed buildings, mostly Georgian or half-timbered houses as well as a castle, once the home of kings, now a centre for festivals, events and open-air theatre performances.
    An unusual day out can be enjoyed at the Secret Hills Discovery Centre, which traces the geological history of the Shropshire Hills, and is housed in an unusual turf-roofed building designed to echo the hill forts found in the surrounding countryside. A simulated hot air balloon flight over the Wrekin in the north to the Stiperstones in the south forms the central attraction of the Centre. A good day out can also be had at the Acton Scott working farm and museum. Leominster, Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth, Ironbridge and mid-Wales are all within easy driving distance. Fishing, walking, horse riding are all available and Ludlow golf course incorporates the Ludlow National Hunt Racecourse. Shop 6 miles.
