Park House Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- Composed of two separate 17th-century country houses, the property is described as "an attractive hotel" with "two distinct architectural styles" by The AA
- Leisure facilities include an indoor swimming pool and a hot tub
- Charles Darwin's birth town of Shrewsbury, the Iron Bridge and the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford are all less than 20 minutes' drive away
- The Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the walking hub of Church Stretton -- which was nicknamed Little Switzerland in the Victorian era -- are a 35-minute drive away
Having once been two separate 17th-century country houses, Park House Hotel features "two distinct architectural styles" (The AA) and is set among well maintained gardens. The hotel is on the edge of the market town of Shifnal, 20 minutes' drive away from Charles Darwin's birth town of Shrewsbury.
The Iron Bridge (the first major bridge in the world to be made of cast iron), the 10 Ironbridge Gorge Museums, and the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford, which has over 70 aircraft on display, are less than 15 minutes' drive away.
Blists Hill Victorian Town, an open-air museum where you can travel back over 100 years in time to experience the Victorian way of life, is a 10-minute drive away, while the ruins of the medieval Wenlock Priory are 20 minutes' drive away.
The Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a 35-minute drive from the hotel. Tucked away in a deep valley, you'll find the sleepy village of Church Stretton. Nicknamed Little Switzerland in the Victorian era, for its natural springs and wooded hilly landscape, it is an ideal base for walks or cycle tours.
The Park House Hotel boasts leisure facilities including an indoor swimming pool and a hot tub. There is also a table tennis table.
Butlers Bar and Restaurant serves "imaginative food" (The AA), in an oak-panelled period setting.
All 54 bedrooms include free Wi-Fi.
