The Experience

Peaceful green Shropshire and a stunning garden surround this classic white farmhouse. There are chickens, ducks and geese dotted about, rabbits on the lawn, doves in the trees and a blooming veg patch.

Tess and family look after you well. Pretty bedrooms have tea trays and you wake for breakfast served on Portmeirion china: homemade marmalade, compotes, eggs from the hens, bacon and sausages from home-reared pigs. There are often scones and jam at teatime too.

Historic Shrewsbury, Ironbridge, Ludlow, and Powis Castle are all within reach, and you can join walking trails from the door. Sit in the garden and admire the views at summery times; settle by the log-burner with books to browse and a glass of wine in winter. Tess will happily drop and pick you up after dinner at The Riverside Inn, overlooking the river Severn and just four minutes away in Cressage.

Accommodation

Reviews

We found this B&B 18 months ago from the tourist board website and so liked it that we planned our holiday this time to include a stay here. The rooms we’ve had have both been cosy, charming and spotlessly clean, with very comfortable beds and beautiful linen. We had a relaxing evening lazing by the wood-burning stove and then enjoyed the delightful view of the garden as we had our delicious breakfast. Tess couldn’t be more welcoming and helpful.

Rachel and Martin, Ashford

We had a lovely stay at North Farm B&B. Tess was the perfect host - very welcoming, offering us good suggestions on family friendly attractions nearby and providing a delicious breakfast each morning. The accommodation was excellent and has a large garden for our young son to explore. I’d thoroughly recommend a visit, and we hope to stay again.

Bec, Somerset

A very peaceful B&B in the beautiful Shropshire countryside. Very well situated for visiting Shrewsbury, Church Stretton and Ironbridge, with Ludlow within easy reach. North Farm has a real farmhouse feel to it, with added luxury. Our room was in effect a suite, with a small sitting room and a large bathroom. Beautiful bedlinen, and everything spotless. The breakfast room overlooks the lovely garden. Breakfast itself was generous, and cooked to order. Tess is welcoming and attentive without intruding. We enjoyed everything about our two night stay and will happily return.

Edward, London

Quite possibly the best B&B we've ever stayed in. We loved our large, light room with very comfortable bed, and the peaceful location was marvellous. Best of all though was the very hospitable welcome, not to mention Tess's super breakfast. We were invited to make ourselves at home and we really did, with Tess cooling our drinks for us to enjoy each evening in their lovely garden! We spent a very enjoyable three days there and hope to be able to visit again.

Rachel, Ashford

Well what can i say beautiful place but my actions caused some distress i ran a bath went and lay back on the bed only to cause the bath to overflow and go through the floorboards and throug the ceiling i felt absolutely devasated at my stupidity but tess the owner was fantastic and kind and gave me a hug saying accidents happen and not to worry and made us a tasty breakfast i urge people to stay at this beautiful farm warm hearted people and even after my disaster tess said i would be welcomed back if you visit you will not be disapointed

Location

The neighbourhood

Eaton Mascott and the area around the farm is an unspoilt, rural and deeply peaceful patch of Shropshire. You'll see wildlife galore and can visit a stash of nearby National Trust houses and thriving market towns. For places to eat, a bit further than the local pub, try The Horseshoes in Dorrington (six miles) and The Mytton & Mermaid Hotel, four miles. There's a good choice in historic Shrewsbury, a 20-minute drive, including The Peach Tree. Visit Ludlow, 35 minutes by car; Ironbridge for museums, 25 minutes; Much Wenlock for arts and crafts,15 minutes; Powis Castle 30.

Local points of interest from Tess Bromley

  • Shrewsbury, 6 miles away, is one of England’s finest medieval market towns. Sail on Sabrina, the passenger boat, round the River Severn loop, or walk by the river through the Quarry Park and the DIngle - a landscaped garden which changes with the seasons
  • Explore millions of years of history at Shrewsbury's Museum and Art Gallery, take in a show at Theatre Severn on Frankwell Quay or visit the Old Market Hall, which has been lovingly restored and re-opened as a contemporary but intimate cinema
  • The town centre is a shopper’s paradise, with a mix of designer stores, shopping malls and quirky independent retailers selling handmade wares and local goods. And don't forget the tempting bars, cafes and restaurants - there's something for everyone...
  • Ironbridge, barely half an hour away by car, is known as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and boasts the world’s 1st iron bridge. A World Heritage Site, there are 10 award-winning museums along the valley, which bring the area's history to life
  • Walkers will rejoice with the variety of trails - Longmynd, Stiperstones and Lawley are ideal for hill walking, or visit the gorgeous valleys in the Church Stretton area. We supply maps and lots of local knowledge of the region, to help you plan your route
  • Plan your trip to make the most of Shrewsbury’s packed festival calendar - highlights include the Darwin Festival in February, the Food Festival at the end of June, and in August, the Shrewsbury Folk Festival, as well as the world's oldest Flower Show

Introducing

Shropshire born and bred, Tess and Rob know the area inside out. Four generations of Bromleys have farmed on the Eaton Mascott Estate, and they love to share it, the walking trails and their local knowledge with guests. Rob can often be found ploughing the fields and Tess enjoys sourcing local produce and cooking up a storm in the kitchen, with homemade apple pie and freshly baked scones often on the go. They have two dogs, Cracker and Tilly.
