Passing through fields and woodland to the secluded Shooting Lodge, yet Shrewsbury and Ludlow are both nearby.

Location: The spectacular Stretton Hills and Welsh Marches offer riding, cycling and walking. Among the many nearby sites are Attingham Park, the famous Ironbridge Gorge and its many museums, the castles of Powis and Stokesay and Wroxeter Roman city. The prettiest market towns and traditional country pubs are all close at hand including Shrewsbury to the north, on the banks of the River Severn; and Ludlow, to the south, with its medieval castle. This is a food paradise with fine restaurants and artisan shops galore. Shop 4 miles.

This is a fantastic venue to unite friends and family in a remote and beautiful location. A very interesting and quirky accommodation. Fabulous dining and sitting room hall with high beamed ceilings. Kitchen large with seating for 8/10 for breakfast. A bit limited on kitchen utensils, chopping boards hand wash and shower gel etc. Bedrooms accommodate a cot and several single beds, one double and the chalet in the garden. Made with fresh white bed linen and towels. 1 full bathroom, separate toilet and en suite shower require planning for a full house. Surrounding footpaths give access to rolling countryside. The clamping site and historical farm on the estate appeared to be closed.

This is our 3rd time staying at this property, the first time was 13 years ago and nothing has changed which is disappointing. The tumble dryer, washing machine and microwave should be thrown away. They are filthy and rusty. Very poor show. The bathroom is outdated and shabby. Come on guys spend a little bit of money on the joint. Overall we look the property and especially the location but it's really rather dirty in places. So much for covid cleaning. The whole place needs a deep clean

Great for group staycation. It’s an old house so don’t expect premiership standards. Beds clean and comfy. Towels fresh and fluffy. Awesome location.
