    Peacefully situated within the extensive grounds of the Pitchford Estate, these four properties offer superb holiday accommodation. The Generals’ Quarters (UKC2646) is named after a previous owners of the hall, General Sir Robert and Charles Grant. Guests will be situated in the West Wing, the oldest part of the hall constructed in 1549 (but with beams dating back to the 1250s), and the Hall’s Northern Range. The accommodation will be based on The Tudors and the late Georgian period. Guests will notice the two distinct periods as they move around the General’s Quarters, and will be able to decide which period rooms they wish to sleep in.
    Windy Mundy Farm (RNG) has been converted from an 18th-century threshing barn and deer shelter and is located on an old deer park at the centre of the estate. The bespoke oak dining table offers a dining arrangement for 16 guests. Built on top of a south-facing hill overlooking Row Brook, and part of a working arable farm, it is surrounded by fields of wheat and barley and has spectacular, far-reaching views towards the Shropshire hills. Enclosed by a long stone wall, the farm has its own courtyard garden with a terrace and barbecue.
    Stockbatch Granary (RJ6) is reached by a mile-long drive passing through the mixed arable land of Stockbatch Farm, with its fields of corn encircled by woodland. It comprises an 18th-century granary, clapperboard barn, stables and cowsheds, and nestles on a south-facing slope, at the bottom of which a stream wends its way gently along. A courtyard garden enclosed by a red sandstone wall provides a pleasant sitting-out area from which to survey the countryside views.
    Tree House Barn (rddj) is a sensitively restored detached barn conversion which enjoys views of the world famous Pitchford Tree House (the oldest tree house in the world).
    Within 6 miles of each property is historic Shrewsbury with its fascinating architecture, castle, museums, fine shops and wealth of traditional inns and restaurants. Easily accessible is popular Church Stretton, and Shropshire’s finest town Ludlow, framed by the gentle Clee Hills, with its impressive castle, magnificent church, many half-timbered buildings and Georgian red-brick houses. Bridgnorth has what is reputed to be the steepest cliff railway in Britain and superb cliff-top walks overlooking the River Severn below. From here, during summer, the Severn Valley Railway’s steam train chugs the scenic 16-mile route to Kidderminster. Attingham Park (National Trust), Benthall Hall (National Trust), Ironbridge Gorge and the old market town of Much Wenlock (with its medieval priory) are all within easy driving distance. Riding, sailing, fishing, golf, pubs and restaurants locally. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 5 miles.
    Tree House Barn (rddj), Stockbatch Granary (RJ6), Windy Mundy Farm (RNG) and The Generals Quarters (UKC2646) can be booked together to accommodate up to 48 guests.

    Confirmed guest – 8 Jan 2020
    "The house was fabulous. Genuinely old, quirky and unique, our whole party was totally enamoured with the place. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms and bedrooms very clean as were lounges and play room. We struggled to get into the house, which was unforeseen and not for lack of support, but created pressure on us and the owners, when we were already a bit pushed. The kitchen was well-equipped, but sadly ovens were very dirty, fridge not great - although thankfully a good size - and the dishwasher failed to work for two days and then did a minimum wash at the end. None of that spoiled our wonderful stay, I give it just as feedback. Also the fire door mechanism on one of the doors failed, but again not a terminal problem. It is an old property which is its charm, we don't expect it to be like a new build!"
    Karen – 13 Nov 2019
    "Lovely old house full of character .Plenty of space ,comfortable beds and spotlessly cleanWe hired a chef for one night Thyme2dine-Stoke-on-Trent So we could enjoy the grand dinning room !"
    Peter – 30 Oct 2019
    "We had a great time. One or two had to share bathrooms, but we had the master suite which was fantastic!"
    Julia – 18 Oct 2019
    "A wonderful property. Perfect for a weekend away with friends."
    Josephine – 2 Oct 2019
    "An amazing, unique, characterful property. Our group of friends thoroughly enjoyed staying here, especially dinners in the amazing dining room. Beds were very comfortable."
    Charles – 14 Aug 2019
    "A wonderful place for the whole family to have a week away together, first time we had been back since we left Shropshire 14 years ago. Great for playing a family game of sardines. We found the kitchen very well equipped with two lovely welcoming sponge cakes which we all enjoyed.A coffee machine would have been a bonus and we found the fire doors unforgiving."
    Ruth – 11 Apr 2019
    "This was a brilliant venue for a special 70th birthday for a party of twelve including very small children. The building itself was the star but the surrounding countryside came a close second."
    Joyce – 3 Apr 2019
    "Fantastic place to stay couldn't have asked for better place to celebrate my birthday with closed family & friends.Could have just done with more fridge freezer space.However everything else was spot on."
    Steve – 25 Mar 2019
    "We stayed at the Generals Quarters as a family to celebrate a 60th Birthday. It met all our expectations. The space available accommodated our group as well as affording privacy when required. Absolutely packed with character and history with every modern convenience. We would definetly like to return"
    Suzi – 10 Mar 2019
    "We had a fabulous long weekend at The General's Quarters! The property is absolutely stunning, it has been beautifully renovated with the downstairs rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms all being a wonderful size, perfect for relaxing in and stunningly warm in the cold weather. There are a lot of things to do within a 10-15 minute drive, if you want to go somewhere. Equally there are lots of living spaces at the property if you just want to relax. You can also do walks straight from house. We were a group of 11 and although we all had different interests (just chilling out, walking, exploring, archaeology) and needs (children, dogs) it suited us perfectly. We will definitely be back!"
    Jacqui – 3 Jan 2019
    "It was a wonderful place for a family gathering for Christmas.The large well equipped kitchen was near enough to the wonderful panelled dining room with large log burning fireplace, where all the family could be together"
    Dan – 16 Dec 2018
    "Well what can I say but...AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING YOU SIMPLY MUST STAY HERE...the rest can jog on. Full of such history and charm...And that's to go for the owners too! They showed us around the main house and what a treat. Lovely warm people. I can't wait to go back!"
    Flora – 18 Oct 2018
    "We stayed at the Generals Quarters as a group of friends. This place is amazing. It was a privilege to stay in such an old building that had been so thoughtfully restored. The restoration is still ongoing in the grounds but its easy to see how beautiful these will be with time. The house itself is a few miles from shops and pubs but if you come prepared there is no real reason to leave! You might want to bring a board game or two though. The house itself had more than enough space for 14 adults. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing meals for everyone and all the bedrooms were large and had their own individuality. We would definitely return here, what a great experience."
