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. The Estate is home to Pitchford Hall (Generals' Quarters), Windy Mundy Farm, Stockbatch Granary and Tree House Barn, four holiday lets available as holiday accommodation for groups of up to 14, 16, 14 and 4 respectively.
With stunning interiors and an idyllic location, these properties offer a country escape that we hope that you'll love as much as we do.
Described as Britain’s finest half-timbered house, Pitchford Hall was owned by the Colthurst family for more than 500 years before being sold in 1992. Now on the ‘at Risk’ register, the house has been bought back by Rowena Colthurst and her husband, who are embarking on the massive task of saving it, following 25 years of neglect. The house is named after a natural pitch well in the grounds. Prince Rupert hid from the Roundheads in the priest-hole here during the Civil War and Princess (later Queen) Victoria played in the Tudor-style treehouse. The ‘restoration’ tours will include the main rooms on the ground floor, the priest-hole room and the Princess Victoria room.
Pitchford Estate makes an ideal venue for wedding receptions because of the many accommodation options and stunning architecture right across the Estate all set within the idyllic Shropshire countryside.
Peacefully situated within the 1,000 acres of the Pitchford Estate, this property, which sleeps 16, offers spacious holiday accommodation.
Windy Mundy Farm has been converted from an 18th century threshing barn and has the ‘wow factor’. Built on top of a south-facing hill overlooking the Row Brook, it is surrounded by fields of wheat and barley and has spectacular, far-reaching views of the Shropshire hills. Enclosed by a long red sandstone wall, the farm has its own courtyard garden with a patio and barbecue.
