Your choice of intriguing glamping options, spread throughout the grounds of a beautiful country estate.
Lydbury North Shropshire SY7 8AZ 01588 680 570
Walcot Hall is a fabulous country estate, perfectly placed for exploring the beautiful Shropshire Hills, and a glorious place to stay in its own right, with a Georgian house at its heart, and, in addition to a number of comfy self-catering cottages and apartments, a variety of glamping opportunities dotted around its sumptuous grounds.
Suited to the slightly more agile and adventurous, it's the sort of place to head for if you not only want to get right away from it all but you're also keen to stay somewhere really different, and very private. They have a wide range of options – three yurts, a gypsy caravan, a romantic shepherd's hut in Walcot Hall's very own Arboretum, two 'showman's' caravans, a fire truck, and the wonderful 'Dipping Shed' – a two-bedroom open-plan apartment converted from a hunting lodge, a good ten-minute walk from the main house. Some of these have their own facilities, the yurts share a converted henhouse loo, others use a 'long-drop' earth toilet in the woods; there is a gas-powered shower in a caravan, and you can also use the toilet block of the Walcot Hall campsite on the same site.
The village pub – the Powis Arms – is owned and run by the hall and serves great food, and you're just a short (ten-minute) drive from Bishops' Castle, where there are shops, good pubs and a couple of great places to eat, including the restaurant at the excellent Castle Hotel. In the other direction, The Kangaroo in Aston-on-Clun is a proper locals' joint serving good food – one of our favourite pubs hereabouts.
