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.

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.

A charming retreat tucked away in the South Shropshire Hills, a rural idyll made famous by the poems of A.E. Housman’s A Shropshire Lad.

Henley Cottage is a 19th- century former farm labourer’s dwelling, sympathetically restored to reinstate its original condition and located in a picturesque estate landscape which has remained unchanged for two centuries.
This humble property, which sleeps up to five, has taken many a star turn on BBC TV, including hit series Victorian Farm and new for 2010, Escape in Time. Holiday visitors now have the opportunity to enjoy its simple and homely atmosphere and the unique opportunity to escape modern day living. Henley Cottage has been much written about and has been tipped by The Sunday Times’ Top 100 Cool Holiday Cottages (2010).
Accommodation
: The cottage (one of a pair) has three floors and at its heart is the kitchen/parlour, boasting a cast-iron kitchen range. State-of-the-art in 1888, it is in perfect working order. The simple, airy interiors, lime-washed in pleasing natural colours, are floored with oak or original quarry tiles. The atmospheric lighting is provided by oil lamps and candles and there’s a walk in larder for cool food storage.
Narrow original stairs lead to the first floor and one double bedroom with wrought-iron bedstead heated by a small fireplace, steep open tread stairs lead to the top floor and a twin room with wood-burner and sloping ceiling. A fifth person can sleep on the third bedroom/landing. Beds are equipped with comfortable horsehair mattresses, linen sheets and blankets of pure wool.
There is a fireside tin bath for bathing, while the laundry room includes original copper, mangle and dolly tub with fresh water drawn from a pump. Smoothly-cobbled paths edge the vegetable and herb patch for the use of guests, alongside the outside garden and seating area.
For the faint hearted, the single concession to the 21st century is a modern hot water shower and flush loo contained within an outhouse in the private garden.
