Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Wonderful Lodge in a stunning location! July 2012.
  2. Liked the location, very quiet good views and nosy neighbours - cows!. Suited us well, I particularly enjoyed sleeping out in the log cabin. June 2012.
  3. Exactly what we wanted in an idilic location. May 2012.
  4. This property has a comfortable and lived-in feel, in a fabulous location. This was our fourth visit! Oct 2011.
  5. Fantastic holiday with 6 members of my family. The location was an ideal getaway from it all, with plenty of lovely walks from the property door. The disappointments were that we couldn’t get the large grill on the range to work, so a cooked breakfast for all of us was difficult,and the lighting was very poor in all the downstairs rooms, but other than that we all said can’t wait to go back and wished we had booked for longer. Oct 2011.
  6. This was our second visit to the Shooting Lodge. It is a great place for our family get-together, very relaxing and the scenery spectacular. We stayed in the log cabin this time, which was surprisingly comfortable and lovely to sit on the porch with a cup of tea in the morning with the sun streaming down. The grounds around the lodge are brilliant and very safe for the dogs too, they loved it. Sept 2011.
  7. Wow what a place, outstanding. A fantastic place to get away from it all. Loads of room and chill out time!! July 2011.
  8. Wonderful location, lots and lots to do including great walking. Very much enjoyed the day at the Blacksmith’s at Acton Scott Musuem. Would love to return very soon. April 2011.
  9. The Shooting Lodge is away from it all - no need to speak to another soul just enjoy the views across to Wenlock Edge. But only a few minutes down the road Church Stretton provides all the supplies you need (including take-aways). Shropshire is a lovely county and we must return to explore more (and revisit the castles). Go to the Acton Scott Working Farm early in your visit and you can then drop in again later in the week. April 2011.
  10. The property is fantastic - great for a reunion as we had, nicely secluded and in a great area to visit some lovely places. Just be aware it is not part of the Acton Scott Working Farm - this is council run - we went first weekend in April and the farm doesn’t open for the season until 5th April - thankfully the farm gave us a private tour - this was the whole reason for booking the place and the website does imply it belongs and only states opening time as ’April’ for the cafe etc. As we got our tour - the weekend was perfect - would definitely go again. April 2011.
  11. Location. Dec 2010.
  12. Just what we wanted. Oct 2010.
  13. Idyllic setting, remote, but close enough for places to visit. This was our 3rd visit and it felt like coming home. Very relaxed atmosphere. Oct 2010.
  14. Size and beautiful views. Sept 2010.
  15. It was amazing - The property was absolutely perfect and we loved the layout and how the owners had thought of everything we could possibly need. I can safely say that this is the best property we have stayed in - location was perfect too. We didn’t want to leave and already looking to rebook in the future. Sept 2010.
  16. Its location (very secluded with abundant wildlife - rabbits,squirrels, foxes, bats etc) and wonderful view of Wenlock Edge. We used it for a Family holiday with ages ranging from 89 to 6 months. There was something for everyone - The table tennis room was well used, and the log cabin enchanting. Plenty of space in the kitchen and "Banqueting Hall". July 2010.
  17. The grounds for the children to play in were excellent. We couldn’t see another property from the Shooting Lodge so we felt so private. July 2010.
  18. Beautifully restored, secluded location. Feb 2010.
  19. Not another property in sight and we were not bothered by the owners at all, wonderful open fire. Jan 2010.
  20. Character, setting and countryside. Dec 2009.

    Property Description

    A finely restored and spacious character property situated in its own private grounds, commanding uninterrupted views across open parkland towards Wenlock Edge.

    Approached by a track that winds through fields and woodland, The Shooting Lodge dates to the mid 18th century and occupies an idyllic position in a picturesque estate landscape unchanged for two centuries. This exclusive property retains all its original privacy and character while providing every modern day comfort.
    The Shooting Lodge includes a wealth of period features, such as beamed ceilings, oak floors and open fireplaces. Restored to an excellent standard, it offers a large oak framed banqueting room, for relaxing and entertaining, spacious and bespoke farmhouse-style kitchen, the convenience of a secondary kitchen and south facing lawns and patios.
    With bedrooms and bathrooms thoughtfully appointed, it is furnished with a mix of new and antique and the use of traditional English fabrics throughout. There is a rustic log cabin summerhouse with viewing platform and external table tennis room. The property is very popular with families and small groups of friends, achieving many repeat bookings.
    Accommodation: Large beamed banqueting room with open fireplace and flagstone floor. Well-equipped farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room with feature fireplace, LPG range and Belfast sink. Utility room with additional electric oven and hob. Double bedroom with en-suite shower room. Separate toilet. Bathroom with shower cubicle and toilet. Narrow steep stairs to first floor: Twin bedroom with 2ft 6in beds (can form 5ft double), with wooden floor and wash basin. Double bedroom with 6ft bed (can form 3ft singles), wash basin, wooden floor and low door. Larger double bedroom with 6ft bed (can form 3ft singles) with additional 2ft 6in bed (for +1), wash basin, oak floor and feature fireplace. Log cabin (35 metres from main house): Double sofa-bed (for +2) with vanity unit and commode-style toilet.


    Location: You will discover a piece of British history at Acton Scott, for it achieved national fame as the setting for BBC2’s hit TV series Victorian Farm, acknowledging the Acton family’s championing of sustainable practices. It has been followed by another Acton Scott-based BBCTV series Escape in Time, new for 2010 and presented by Ben Fogle.
    Guests can enjoy a memorable setting and a multitude of activities on this lovingly preserved estate, including the Historic Working Farm - where the land is worked with heavy horses to preserve a way of life before the age of the tractor. This visitor attraction is a firm favourite with families. There’s the handy School House café (open April to October) and lovely guided walks and cycle rides.
    The prettiest market towns and traditional country pubs are all close at hand. Including Shrewsbury to the north, on the banks of the River Severn; and Ludlow, to the south, in its medieval castle setting. This is a food paradise with Michelin star restaurants and artisan shops galore. The spectacular Stretton Hills and Welsh Marches offer riding, cycling and walking. Among the many nearby sites are Attingham Park, the famous Ironbridge Gorge and its many museums, the castles of Powis and Stokesay and Wroxeter Roman city.
    But if you simply cannot tear yourself away from Acton Scott, the finest local produce and home prepared meals can be delivered to your holiday house, with a la carte catering available to pre-book for special occasions.
    The Shooting Lodge is one of three holiday houses at Acton Scott. Henley Farmhouse is a finely restored, detached character property in its own extensive grounds, sleeps up to 20, ref RJJ3. Henley Cottage, an authentic Victorian farm labourer’s cottage, as seen on TV, sleeps 4+1, ref ROO4. All three Acton Scott properties may be rented together or individually, to accommodate the needs of larger parties.
    Nearby and three miles to the east of Shrewsbury, Rupert Acton is also the custodian of Cronkhill Farmhouse on the National Trust’s Attingham Park estate. A spacious 17th century timber framed property with spectacular views towards the River Severn, it sleeps up to 14, see property ref RN5.
