Enjoying uninterrupted views over parkland towards the River Severn and Wrekin Hill, Cronkhill Farmhouse occupies a delightful elevated position on the National Trust’s Attingham Park Estate.
This spacious, timber framed farmhouse is located within picturesque grounds including a sun trapped walled garden, fruit trees and brick apple store. Dating from the 17th century and Grade I listed, it was remodelled by John Nash, the famous Regency architect, to match the adjoining property (also National Trust and open six days a year).
Cronkhill Farmhouse retains many period details, including beamed ceilings, quarry-tiled floors and an open fireplace. Providing spacious living accommodation, a well equipped farmhouse-style kitchen and a large dining and entertaining space, it can sleep up to fourteen guests. Its idyllic situation combines a very convenient location, close to the bustling town of Shrewsbury and the prettiest villages of Shropshire.
The property is especially popular with families and groups of friends.
