The property

A large, detached property, surrounded by a 2000-acre country estate, amidst the rolling countryside in Craven Arms, Shropshire.

The Walton is one of three barn conversions on the private estate and can accommodate up to 15 guests looking for a tranquil rural retreat, close to the Shropshire Hills AONB.

Step inside the property and discover a large kitchen/diner, where you can entertain up to 20 guests at the extensive dining table, and enjoy group meals prepared in the spacious, fully-equipped kitchen, which offers all the mod cons you could wish for, including a Range cooker, double oven and two dishwashers.

There is a choice of two sitting rooms, with plenty of comfortable seating in each, with one offering a TV and apex ceiling, while the other is great for enjoying a quiet moment and curling up with a good book.

The Walton offers six bedrooms across two floors, each one with their own en-suite facility, including a family room with a king-size and single bed, a ground-floor family room with a small double and single, a ground-floor king-size double, a double, a twin and a ground-floor twin, so there are plenty of options and a wide variety of groups that can be catered for.

Outside there are extensive grounds to explore, as well as a shared barbecue, heated indoor swimming pool and tennis court.

The nearby market town of Craven Arms offers a selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as the fascinating Museum of Lost Content and scenic walks to be enjoyed around Wenlock Edge and Corvedale Valley.

Visit Stokestay Castle, a fine example of a Medieval fortified manor, with a chapel, garden and moat walk, just tucked inside the Shropshire Hills AONB.

Head further into the Shropshire Hills to Church Stretton, nestled between the Long Mynd and Caradoc Hills, where you can enjoy scenic countryside walks, a wonderful golf course and woodland trails at Rectory Wood.

The historic towns of Bishop's Castle, Ludlow and Shrewsbury are all a short drive away, with stunning castles to visit, riverside strolls to embark upon and a host of shops, pubs and restaurants.

The Walton is a fantastic base for a large get-together in the tranquil Shropshire countryside. Please note that image numbers 32, 33 and 34 show The Shooting Lodge - a fabulous communal room which, subject to availability can be booked at an additional cost.
