Peacefully situated within extensive grounds with plenty of space for 14 guests, Stockbatch Granary makes an ideal retreat at any time of year.

Peacefully situated within extensive grounds with plenty of space for 14 guests, Stockbatch Granary makes an ideal retreat at any time of year.

Peacefully situated within the extensive grounds of the Pitchford Estate, these four properties offer superb holiday accommodation. The Generals’ Quarters (UKC2646) is named after a previous owners of the hall, General Sir Robert and Charles Grant. Guests will be situated in the West Wing, the oldest part of the hall constructed in 1549 (but with beams dating back to the 1250s), and the Hall’s Northern Range. The accommodation will be based on The Tudors and the late Georgian period. Guests will notice the two distinct periods as they move around the General’s Quarters, and will be able to decide which period rooms they wish to sleep in.
Windy Mundy Farm (RNG) has been converted from an 18th-century threshing barn and deer shelter and is located on an old deer park at the centre of the estate. Built on top of a south-facing hill overlooking Row Brook, and part of a working arable farm, it is surrounded by fields of wheat and barley and has spectacular, far-reaching views towards the Shropshire hills. Enclosed by a long stone wall, the farm has its own courtyard garden with a terrace and barbecue.
Stockbatch Granary (RJ6) is reached by a mile-long drive passing through the mixed arable land of Stockbatch Farm, with its fields of corn encircled by woodland. It comprises an 18th-century granary, clapperboard barn, stables and cowsheds, and nestles on a south-facing slope, at the bottom of which a stream wends its way gently along. A courtyard garden enclosed by a red sandstone wall provides a pleasant sitting-out area from which to survey the countryside views.
Tree House Barn (RDDJ) is a sensitively restored detached barn conversion which enjoys views of the world famous Pitchford Tree House (the oldest tree house in the world).
Within 6 miles of each property is historic Shrewsbury with its fascinating architecture, castle, museums, fine shops and wealth of traditional inns and restaurants. Easily accessible is popular Church Stretton, and Shropshire’s finest town Ludlow, framed by the gentle Clee Hills, with its impressive castle, magnificent church, many half-timbered buildings and Georgian red-brick houses. Bridgnorth has what is reputed to be the steepest cliff railway in Britain and superb cliff-top walks overlooking the River Severn below. From here, during summer, the Severn Valley Railway’s steam train chugs the scenic 16-mile route to Kidderminster. Attingham Park (National Trust), Benthall Hall (National Trust), Ironbridge Gorge and the old market town of Much Wenlock (with its medieval priory) are all within easy driving distance. Riding, sailing, fishing, golf, pubs and restaurants locally. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 5 miles.
Tree House Barn (RDDJ), Stockbatch Granary (RJ6), Windy Mundy Farm (RNG) and The Generals Quarters (UKC2646) can be booked together to accommodate up to 48 guests.

    STOCKBATCH REVIEW A friendly venue for our annual house party, although, after all the recent October rain, it was a somewhat damp and muddy site to reach. Probably much better in the Summer. Certainly peaceful and undisturbed. The house suited us very well as we needed six bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms. Stockbatch does have seven bedrooms but we did not need the room that only has a bath and no shower. The kitchen was very well equipped and the large fridge freezer plus the extra fridge were capacious enough to take our food for a long weekend. (You would not want to have to rush out for extra food or the newspaper, as the nearest shop was a good 3 miles away on narrow roads). Seating in the kitchen was a bit of a squeeze (compared with the dining room, which was excellent). Lighting is cosy in the extremely generously proportioned sitting room, but you might want to bring in extra lamps for reading. The hall was excellent, plenty of room to hang coats, dump shoes and excellent low walls to sit and put boots on!’ As we arrived the potholes in the farm track that approaches the house (about a mile) were being filled in. But don’t expect a smooth driveway! We had an issue with the heating on our last evening and having, eventually, with some difficulty (see below), contacted the caretaker, he came out very promptly. (It is worth noting that there is virtually no phone signal anywhere in the property and no landline. The Wi-Fi is adequate but only extends to the lounge and kitchen, not to any of the bedrooms). Lots to do in the area, and we had some great walks.

    Spent a week in October here with 10 family members. The road up to the granary needs pot holes filling in quickly as the lane up is nearly a mile long. The granary itself was amazing. Large clean well maintained warm house. Loads of equipment in cupboards to accommodate us all. Near by Shrewsbury and Ironbridge were really worth the visit.

    The Granary is lovely with a well equipped kitchen, all bedrooms en-suite and surrounded by beautiful scenery. The farm track to the Granary is long and although made up with stone it is in need of a number of pot holes requiring filling. Although a wood burner stove is in the lounge we found the heating was warm enough so did not use it. There was a problem with the sound on the TV which, despite us reporting it to the agent, was not fixed during our week long stay.

    Very good indeed. The remoteness of the Granary makes it difficult to score Local Amenities highly; a very well laid out property, just what was required for our family weekend.

    We found that the Granary was perfect for our purpose. 9 adults and 6 children under 5. There was a homely feel to the place, comfortable and user friendly, with plenty of space for the children to play. We are already talking about the possibility of returning next year.

    We had a 40th celebration at this property with family coming from lots of different places. The accommodation was perfect, with a games room for the children, large dining table to eat around d and close to great walks. We’re already looking at booking again
