Description from owner

Description

Ideally situated for taking advantage of Shrewsbury, Telford and North Shropshire attractions, or for a quiet working base, The Stables is a tasteful and homely conversion of the courtyard stables to Allscott House.

Near to the National Trust property at Attingham Park, the Roman remains and recently built 'Roman' villa at Wroxeter and the first Thomas Telford aqueduct at Longden-on-Tern, The Stables is also close to the famous World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge and its museums.

Another smaller and less well-known National Trust house, Sunnycroft, in nearby Wellington, is also worth a visit, as is The Wrekin where fit walkers will enjoy a long walk and hike to its summit.

In this peaceful spot, guests enjoy the benefit of the use of both private space and shared use of Allscott House grounds. Guests are also able to wander in the private field opposite and spend time by the River Tern or take the bridleway across the Tern to quiet walks on this flat part

Guests are also able to wander in the private field opposite and spend time by the River Tern or take the bridleway across the Tern to quiet walks on this flat part of the Shropshire Way.

Several pubs are nearby, with the well-known 'Plough', with excellent food, being nearest and most easily accessible on foot.

Rich with visible original oak purlins and beams as well as recovered bricks and tiles used in the floors, the let comprises a lounge, kitchen, shower room and bedroom, all accessed by glazed doors from the courtyard into the hall.

A hay loft remains in place and accessible for maintenance, from the lounge, by use of a feature, traditional hay loft ladder.

The lounge, with its floor of bricks recovered during the conversion, has a ceiling to the ridge with a round gable window. It enjoys the full benefit of late afternoon sun and is a joy for those staying here after a day at work in Summer.

The kitchen is modern with electric cooking facilities, a fridge freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

The shower room has a comfortable large shower enclosure, underfloor heating and a heated towel rail for additional comfort.

The bedroom has a high ceiling and gable window and houses a king size bed and matching furniture.

The property has genuine old oak purlins and exposed beams to all but the kitchen and shower room, which, for contrast, are finished in a modern style.

Potential guests should be aware that there is poor mobile phone coverage at The Stables.

Please also note that a reasonable electricity allowance is included in the price.

Location description from owner

The England region

Shropshire is apparently the least populated county in England. The Wrekin provides a rain shadow which often results in a unique weather situation in Allscott and the surrounding area.

Allscott is part of the parish of Wrockwardine and has the River Tern as well as flat walks to many local villages including Longdon-on-Tern where you can walk on Thomas Telford's first aqueduct.

Not far away are Church Sretton and the Long Mynd and beyond them, Ludlow is a well-known 'foodie'; centre where a lovely castle frequently supports medieval and music festivals. This is a place not to be missed and can be combined into a one-day trip.

Allscott

Allscott is a hamlet on the outskirts of Telford and pretty well equidistant between Shrewsbury and Telford town centre.

The nearest town is Wellington which comes alive with its market on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. It also hosts a literary festival in Summer. Despite Allscott's rural location, both Shrewsbury and Telford are within easy shopping distance - although there are no shops in the immediate vicinity.

Several pubs and country dining places are within walking distance, - allowing for meals out when cooking doesn't appeal.

For lovers of history, Allscott is very close to Attingham Park, a splendid National Trust mansion and grounds, as well as to Sunnycroft in Wellington. Haughmond Abbey and Hill are close by, on the way to the County town of Shrewsbury, which is rich with both individual shops and small chain stores, as well as the new riverside theatre and luxurious, small, buttercross cinema in the square.

Nearby is the Roman town of Wroxeter, where visitors can see the ruins and the new 'Roman' villa which was recently featured on television. The vineyard there is well worth a visit.

An obvious must is Ironbridge Gorge, a World heritage site with a wealth of interest and housing several museums, each of international interest and with attractions for all ages.

Venturing further, Hawkestone Park and its follies provide a very interesting, if testing, walk.Regular walks are supported by groups. See Wellington Walkers Are Welcome.

“Honeymoon perfection”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2012

Welcomed by Nadine and a beautiful bottle of Shrophire champagne from Wroxeter Roman Vineyard it was a fantastic start to a wonderful honeymoon. A self contained, relaxing oasis based in lovely countryside waiting to explored. A visit to the friendly local pub is a must as the food is brilliant.
