Still lived in by the family who built the house Buntingsdale is mentioned in Doomsday and other famous names connected with the manor include Lady Godiva of Coventry the Cabot brothers and Peter Bulkely who founded Concord Mass. USA because he was disappointed in not inheriting Buntingsdale An ancient castle is still there in the earthworks below the Hall. An army camped in the hill above the house before the Battle of Shrewsbury. The land was fought over in the Civil Wars when two Mackworths father and son were in turn Governors of Shrewsbury Castle their portraits hang in the Hall. In the more recent Second World War the Hall was used as a training ground and wireless listening station and was only released from service in the 1960s when it was excused from being the command centre for nuclear strikes in the West Midlands. With views to the Welsh hills over open countryside the accommodation offered is of a very high standard with comfort and all modern conveniences. An enormous games room with a full-sized snooker table table tennis darts and beer fridge allows for friendly competition in front of a roaring fire. Within the grounds lies a large lake and river frontage with rowing boat and inflatable kayak whilst guests have use of their own secluded courtyard area. There is private coarse fishing available licence required with basic equipment provided and carp and trout with a jetty on the lake. There is also rough shooting duck licence required and private snowdrop daffodil and bluebell woods in season with badgers and buzzards. For pets an outdoor kennel is also available. The private drive is ¾-mile and children’s bikes are welcome. Bike hire is also available by arrangement with the owner. Walks start from the property and the owner also offers wellingtons and warm coats to borrow. Tours of the hall are available by arrangement with the owner including Victorian icehouse and part tunnels weather permitting. There is also a large formal Georgian dining room and drawing room with painted ceiling and fireplace for extra hire and two large open fires in the drawing room and games room. The neighbouring community farm 3 miles has plenty of amenities including a restaurant tea room shop organic butchery walking trails events and children’s activities. Home of the gingerbread the attractive town of Market Drayton was once famed for its Damson Fairs and many Draytonarians continue the tradition with damson feasts each autumn. Keen walkers can follow trails whilst a wild animal trail offers a rather more sedate option for the children Market Drayton is the ideal base for touring Stoke and the Potteries Ironbridge Shrewsbury and North Wales. The Shropshire union canal winds it way close to the town its tow paths flights of locks and breathtaking aqueduct well worth a visit. Nearby you can find award-winning gardens such as Hodnet Wollerton Old Hall and Hawkstone Park with its golf course and unique landscape of caves woodland and follies. Horse riding and golf nearby. Shops and pubs 2 miles. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/105/840/10595530.jpg RD8

    We had a lovely 3 night stay at Bulkely Wing with family and friends to celebrate a 60th Birthday. There is plenty of equipment, pots, pans, cultery etc. Beds very comfortable and everyone slept well. Victoria, the owner, is very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Loved that we could take our dogs away with us and at no extra cost. There is a spiral staircase to get to the accommodation and this can be very tiresome for us elderly ones but did not affect our enjoyment of the weekend. Lovely weekend had by all, thank you Victoria.

    Beautiful setting and house, large comfortable rooms and generally a warm and cosy place to stay, on a cold winter break. The freshly baked cake on arrival was a treat! Its a very good location and base to explore the local area. All rooms were well proportioned, spotless and perfect for a large group. The apartment is accessed via a windy stair. I would completely recommend this place.

    Absolutely loved the whole experience, delicious cake & welcome basket on arrival, endless supply of wood for the fires & oil heaters supplied.Yes the weather was wet & cold but we all felt quite cosy upstairs. Providing you light the fire in the games room,it is a great space,we all spent many hours playing games. Our party's ages ranged from 25yrs to 78yrs & no one fell on the stairs. We also had a Sainsbury delivery which saved taking our goodies

    Beyond impressed with a truly special place. The owner has obviously taken much time and care to create a unique, spacious and well equipped apartment that celebrates the faded grandeur of this 18th century grade 2* listed Stately Home. The welcome was exceptional with tea and home made cake laid out on arrival, complimented with a basket containing fresh bread, farmhouse butter, home-made jam, eggs, coffee and biscuits amongst other things. Sadly, we only booked 3 nights and wish we'd book for longer, but we will return.

    This is the perfect place to live like Downton Abbey for a day! The self-contained part of the house is huge - plenty of space for our party of eight - with big en-suite bedrooms, a spacious kitchen/diner equipped with everything you might need, and a lovely living room. Guests also have access to a games room in the old servants hall, with full-sized snooker and table tennis tables. It is all the extras that make this place so special - the welcome basket filled with treats on arrival, proper fires laid in every room, and the most welcoming hosts. We hired the dining room (additional cost) to celebrate a family birthday and the family offered us drinks in the drawing room beforehand - perfect! We did have to be careful with some of the older members of our group as there is a long winding staircase up to the property, and some of the floors were a little uneven. We also found it a little tricky finding the house in the dark - but the hosts were always very responsive.

    We had a lovely holiday with our daughter her husband and their 6 children.The owners are delightful and extremely helpful. They provided us with a wonderful gift of local delicacies and a great Victoria sandwich cake as well as scones jam and cream to greet us. The beds were comfortable and the house warm. The spiral staircase was a slight challenge for my arthritic knees but easily coped with by the rest of the family.

    We booked Bulkely wing, part of Buntingsdale Hall for a family birthday celebration, 2 families of four and my mum and dad. We arrived on Friday to homemade cake and a lovely hamper full of Shropshire goodies, even goodies for our 2 cocker spaniels! The house is enormous , with everything you could need, catered for. 5 bedrooms with 5 bathrooms a huge living space, huge kitchen with 2 sofas in which we spent most of our time, everyone is always in the kitchen at parties, as they say! Pots and pans in abundance, every utensil you could think of, large fridge and freezer large enough for a weeks worth of food. A few essentials were also provided which was a blessing. Even handsoap in all the bathrooms. The pierce de resistance for us was most definitely the games room in the basement, full size snooker table , pool table, roulette wheel , table tennis table and a dart board. Our only complaint would be no light above the dart board, my mum and dad play as part of a team so the stakes were high! It certainly didn't spoil our fun though! Our only other suggestion would be maybe a beer fridge down there, we did manage with ice blocks. The outside area was well used too, it was perfect for those who were up early, to enjoy a little bit of peace and quiet. The lake was a great little walk , as was the river, in which we caught some crayfish, we were eaten alive my mosquito's so do remember your spray! The local pub , The Kings Head , about 1 mile away was perfect for us, food was good , and on a Sunday and Monday they have offers on the beer, result! For any runners ,we did Shrewsbury Parkrun, about 30 min drive away, lovely route and very friendly, careful where you park though, its all pay and display. We also did Alton Towers, 45 min drive away. Plenty of supermarkets in Market Drayton, with a Sainsburys local about 1 mile away. We met the lovely family on numerous occasions, the house is steeped in history and makes very interesting listening. The 2 dogs , George and Finn were good company too! Overall we had an amazing time, such a central place to explore this beautiful county. The only thing i would say is our mum and dad are quite a fit and healthy 68 years young but the spiral staircase , which is the access to the wing took its toll. But please do not let this put you off as this house is beautiful and an absolute find, the family could not be more accommodating. We will definitely be back. Thank you
