Situated in Shropshire, a county full of picturesque market towns, rolling hills and many countryside activities we believe a stay at the Walcot Hall estate will become a truly memorable experience. Whether you’re looking for a cosy holiday cottage for a weekend get away or an outdoors experience for all the family, we’re sure to have something to suit…
All of our cottages and glamping ‘Hidden Treasures’ fit in well with the impressive and energetic ambiance of this renowned estate. Walcot Hall is best known for its idyllic setting, which makes a unique wedding location and houses some of the most characterful accommodation in Shropshire. The two compliment each other, as it is often hard to find a truly beautiful wedding venue with accommodation of the same calibre for the whole family!
Our weekend breaks are for either a Friday and Saturday night or Saturday and Sunday night (2 x nights) and our mid-week breaks run from Monday-Friday (4 x nights). Weekly stays are also available but please note that at Christmas, New Year and Easter, all bookings are for a minimum of 7 x nights. Check in time is from 4.00pm and departure time is 10.30am. We don’t have a traditional check in/out procedure, upon receipt of the final payment, all the information, directions and maps are emailed to the guest so they can make their own way to their accommodation, let themselves in and make themselves at home.
For availability and rates please take a look at our individual cottages and glamping pages.
With no less than 14 self-catering holiday cottages housed in a variety of buildings around the estate, from the historic Main House to the refurbished stable block, to an old reconstructed tin Chapel in the Arboretum, we’re sure to have something for everyone. Ranging from 1 to 5 bedrooms, all of our holiday cottages are as cosy as you could wish for and thoughtfully furnished with a classically comfortable feel. They are perfectly located for exploring the Shropshire Hills and we can accommodate families, groups of friends and romantic get aways. For larger groups we recommend exclusive hire of the entire Top Floor of the Hall – across this space we can sleep up to 24 guests with numerous kitchens, living areas and bathrooms…it’s a maze! All of our holiday cottages have wood-burning stoves and/or Agas, and some have their own private patios or garden spaces.
Suited to the slightly more agile and adventurous, our glamping ‘Hidden Treasures’ are the sort of place to head for if you not only want to get away from it all but you’re also keen to stay somewhere a bit different! We have a wide range of options – four yurts, a gypsy caravan, a shepherd’s hut, two traditional ‘showman’s’ caravans and a fire truck in our very own extensive Arboretum. These glamping options share a variety of facilities, the yurts share a converted henhouse loo, others use a ‘long-drop’ composting toilet in the woods; there is a gas-powered shower in a quirky wooden hut central to the Arboretum, and you can also use the facilities block at the Walcot Hall campsite at the bottom of the drive if you wish.
You can spend hours wandering beneath the boughs of the beautiful Arboretum, in and out of the grottos, and up to the giant wooden bear. There are lakes with rowing boats to punt around in, lawns to play croquet on (unless reserved for a wedding that day) and local stables for those who prefer to explore from the seat of a saddle!
