Property Description

Built in 1720 by Bulkeley Mackworth, and set in a prominent location within 18 acres of parkland, the apartment [right in photograph] of this Queen Anne mansion has been restored with character and style. With views to the Welsh hills over open countryside, the accommodation offered is of a very high standard, with comfort and all modern conveniences. An enormous games room with a full-sized snooker table, table tennis and darts allows for friendly competition in front of a roaring fire. Within the grounds lies a lake, with coarse fishing available by prior arrangement, whilst guests have use of their own secluded courtyard area.
Home of the gingerbread, the attractive town of Market Drayton was once famed for its Damson Fairs, and many Draytonarians continue the tradition with damson feasts each autumn. Keen walkers can follow the trails of the famous Clive of India or the unusual bloodthirsty ‘Murder and Mayhem’ track, whilst a wild animal trail offers a rather more sedate option for the children! Market Drayton is the ideal base for touring Stoke and the Potteries, Ironbridge, Shrewsbury and North Wales. The Shropshire union canal winds it way close to the town, its tow paths, flights of locks and breathtaking aqueduct well worth a visit. Nearby you can find award-winning gardens, such as Hodnet, Wollerton Old Hall and Hawkstone Park, with its golf course and unique landscape of caves, woodland and follies. Horse riding and golf nearby. Shops and pubs 2 miles.

Spiral staircase to first floor: Large living room with open fire. Spacious modern fitted kitchen with dining area. Three double bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom with shower attachment and toilet, one with en-suite shower room with high pressure shower and toilet, and one with wash basin and toilet. Two twin bedrooms with an interconnecting door (and each with a separate entrance from corridor), each with en-suite bathroom with shower attachments and toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. On arrival all of us said "wow"! Excellent cordial hosts who included a trip round the main hall. Fascinating. Oct 2011.
  2. Brilliant place, amazing property. March 2011.
  3. This was a delightful place to stay - the house was amazing, the owners were really lovely and I can’t wait to visit again in the summer. Feb 2011.
  4. The owners of Bulkeley Wing were very welcoming, giving us helpful information about the local taxi firms and area. The lounge and kitchen were a fantastic size for our party of 10. The games room was brilliant. Oct 2010.
  5. Very clean, very spacious, lots of facilities. Owners were very friendly. Some of the info brochures were five years old, though. Although it was advertised as first floor accommodation, there were 37 steps up from the ground floor, which was quite a climb with the suitcases! Could be a bit too much for elderly folk. Sept 2010.
  6. This spacious property is situated in a beautiful area. Close to outdoor activities for all ages. Perfect for family gatherings around log fire. En-suite facilities in all of the five bedrooms and the games room was an added bonus. April 2010.
  7. Very big and comfortable, owners were on hand if you needed them but left you to your holiday. Feb 2010.
  8. Spacious very warm, plenty of hot water and toilets. Oct 2009.
  9. A unique opportunity to stay in part of a genuine mansion that has been in the same family since it was built in early 1700s. Sept 2009.
  10. A lovely atmosphere and surroundings. May 2009.
  11. Beautiful house, lovely owners, met our needs entirely, young mixed group, it was excellent value for money. Oct 2007.
