The thousand acre Pitchford Estate is a dairy, sheep and arable farm with extensive woodland located six miles south of Shrewsbury in one of England’s most rural counties, Shropshire. Boasting architectural oddities, wandering cigar-smoking ghosts and the weight of centuries, there’s plenty to discover on the Pitchford Estate.

Exceptionally fine half-timbered house, owned by the Colthurst family for 500 years, sold in 1992. Placed on the ‘at risk’ register, it has been bought back by Rowena Colthurst and her husband and restoration is ongoing. Prince Rupert hid from the Roundheads in the priest hole here and Queen Victoria played in the Tudor-style treehouse as a child.

Go on a private tour of Pitchford Hall and explore the main rooms on the ground floor, including the great hall and drawing room. Guests will also visit the Priest Hole Room and the Princess Victoria Room. The Victorian Kitchen and General’s Quarters are often included in the tour but dependant on the current state of the rooms.

About half the tour takes place outside, so please bring suitable outdoor clothing and footwear in case of wet weather.

Visitor testimonial

We had a wonderful afternoon at Pitchford and how much work they have achieved since the family came back. Our 3 guides, Helen, Tracy and Stephen, were so enthusiastic and full of facts on the house. The Orangery looks beautiful and we were all ready for a cup of tea and piece of delicious cake.
