The Experience

You stay in a 16th-century turreted Gatehouse, the bright and beamed Coach House, or the newly-renovated Moat House (up to 18 adults plus children if you take all). There’s plenty of space for entertaining, eating together indoors or out and blessed peace for escapees – this is the perfect spot for an inter-generational gathering. For rainy days there are wood-burners, flat screen TVs, board games and books. Otherwise you’ll be spilling out into box-filled borders, level lawns and well-tended beds – barbecues can be arranged.

Convivial meals can be had in the Dragon Hall, a fine dining event or chillout space with a private drawing room and professional kitchen. If you don’t want to cook the house chef can be conjured up, leaving you to sip something delicious from the mirrored honesty bar in front of the Tudor fireplace and admire the Adam Dant murals. History lovers can take an audio tour of the whole estate, walkers can wander woodland paths to a tiny Norman church.

The whole shebang will be grand and memorable.

An enchanting historic estate surrounded by unspoilt, utterly peaceful countryside: a superb place to celebrate a special occasion. The Dragon Hall must be one of the most unique dining spaces in the country and you can leave the catering to a private chef. A Norman church, medieval fishponds, I felt a million miles - and a few hundred years - away from the hurly-burly. A true holiday in history.

The neighbourhood

The winding approach down a couple of miles of lanes sets you far from any other properties but you're just a twenty minute drive from Much Wenlock with its beautiful Abbey ruins and the market town of Ludlow for a castle and excellent local food. Walking is superb on the Jack Mytton Way or Wenlock Edge. The ancient Royal Oak in Cardington is one of Britain's oldest pubs. Ironbridge is near.

Local points of interest from William & Laura Cash

  • Holiday in history in an award winning Elizabethan private historic estate where previous guests have included Edward V, Prince Rupert, two prime misters, Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne. The Prince in the Tower stayed on route to the Tower in 1383.
  • The estate is perfectly located for walking holidays less than a mile from the Jack Mytton Way and close to the Shropshire Way, and the Abbesses' Way from St Michael's church in our grounds to Much Wenlock Priory, one of England's greatest ruined abbeys
  • We are just three miles from the award winning historic market town of Bridgnorth with its famous Friday and Saturday markets, ruined royal castle, and Severn Valley steam railway that chugs along the River Severn with a vintage first class dining carriage
  • Guests you can roam around the Hall's extensive gardens and woods including a Norman church, medieval village, woodland trail, topiary garden and private BBQ areas in all the rental properties.
  • Groups can enjoy the facilities of The Dragon Hall where you can hire a private chef to cater for a special dinner and relax as a group to watch SKY sports or movies in the Drawing Room area with bar. The Dragon Hall is decorated like a medieval palazzo.
  • We have been the location of period films and the subject of William Cash's acclaimed memoir, Restoration Heart about restoring his old family home, For architecture buffs we have three Grade 1 listed buildings, Roman site and a Norman church in the garden
