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.

    Ref: RD8


    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.

    Ref: 30917


    Dating back to the 17th century, these delightful barn conversions (refs 30917, 30918, 30919 and 30920) are set around a courtyard on a 100-acre, family-run working arable and livestock farm, just a few miles from Whitchurch. They have been lovingly and thoughtfully converted to offer very welcoming holiday accommodation, retaining many original features including exposed oak beams and trusses, whilst at the same time offering all the comforts needed to create a charming homely atmosphere. The barns also share a multi-sports court for mini tennis, badminton and football, as well as a fantastic indoor heated swimming pool. The shared swimming pool is available for exclusive use for each barn and booking slots are available throughout the day, booked on your arrival. The swimming pool is open all year round but opening times may vary. A woodland picnic area lies a short walk away from your barn and there is a fantastic enclosed toddler play area available for children under 6 years.
    Walkers can explore the Shropshire Union Canal, just 5 minutes away, and the Shropshire Way footpath runs through the farm. For cyclists, the Mercian Cycle Path runs past the farm. Whilst the barns enjoy a peaceful rural setting, they are still very close to amenities. Whitchurch is approximately 2½ miles away, the delightful market town has many splendid buildings from medieval, Tudor and Georgian times, all dominated by St. Alkmund’s Church. Internationally renowned for its clock production dating back to the 1650s, Whitchurch is known as ’the Home of Tower Clocks’, and a fine example can be seen on one of the barns. There are many excellent shops, pubs and restaurants in the town which is perfectly placed for touring all of Shropshire, North Wales and Cheshire.

    Attractions close by include Ellesmere with its beautiful lakes, 11 miles, a variety of National Trust mansions and gardens, and the historical city of Chester with its excellent shopping and famous races, and the well-renowned Chester Zoo, 25 miles, with the Blue Planet Aquarium close by. Chester Zoo has expanded to include ’The Islands’, making it one of Europe’s largest zoos, helping endangered animals from all over the world. Other places of interest include Hawkstone Follies, Cheshire Ice Cream Farm, RAF Cosford, Fenn’s and Whixall Mosses, and the incredible Ironbridge Gorge. For great shopping, there is Shrewsbury with its medieval architecture and riverside walks, and Telford with its indoor shopping centre. Delamere Forest, with its Go Ape Treetop Adventure, makes a fantastic family day out. With so much to see and do, Alkington Grange Barns makes a wonderful location for an enjoyable year-round holiday.
