    > 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 in extensive and picturesque grounds including a sun trapped walled garden, fruit trees, brick apple store and charcoal barbecue. 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 6 days a year).
    Cronkhill Farmhouse retains many period details, including beamed ceilings, quarry tile floors and open fireplace. Providing spacious living accommodation, well equipped farmhouse-style kitchen and large dining and entertaining space, it can sleep up to 14. 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. Customers are welcome to push the divan beds in the twin rooms together if they wish to form double beds. A la carte catering for special occasions and a freezer filling service are available to pre-book.

    Very nice and unusual house but in need of a little TLC and general updating which would make it great. Probably best suited to large family gatherings for those who love the outdoors.

    Delightful stay in large spacious farmhouse , comfortably accommodating family of 7 adults and 5 children. Great garden for running around in and perfect house for hide and seek. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you. In addition, owner was very responsive over a minor issue we had.

    Lovely house with lots of history. Comfort could be improved by replacing the old and tired sofas. The DVD player is somewhat old and the remote didn't work - still that gave the kids some exercise!

    Cronkhill Farmhouse was great for our needs last weekend. We were going to a wedding nearby and wanted to stay all together with family, so it ticked all the boxes. A downstairs loo would have been helpful, but there were plenty upstairs so it wasn't a big problem. The decor is not luxurious, but just right for a place to stay with kids.

    I would recommend but with reservations. The property is ideal for young children and pets and we all had a great time. However, everything could do with a giant spring clean. The settee in the dining room was downright grubby and the settees in the living room were not the cleanest. There were curtains missing at some windows, some of the fittings were starting to come away at the wall, there were a lot of cobwebs, the plastic tablecloth in the kitchen was ripped and stained, a toilet seat was broken, and so on. Having said that, the bones of the house were fantastic and we were happy to overlook the faults. It was refreshing to find somewhere that hadn't been farrow and balled to within an inch of its life, but a few feminine touches and a thorough clean would have made it even better. On the plus side, it was homely, the rooms were a great size, the beds were comfortable, the views were wonderful, the garden was great and because it wasn't precious, we had a very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable stay. I would happily go back despite the downsides.

    Absolutely brilliant as a location for a big group to hold their annual get together. The living room and dining room will genuinely accommodate the maximum number of guests that the property can take. Kitchen facilities were also excellent, and the beds were comfortable.
