    Hoseasons "Passing through fields and woodland to the secluded Shooting Lodge yet Shrewsbury and Ludlow are both nearby. \nLocation\n You will discover a piece of British history at Acton Scott for it achieved national fame as the setting for BBC2’s hit TV series \nVictorian Farm\n acknowledging the Acton family’s championing of sustainable practices. It has been followed by another Acton Scott-based BBCTV series \nEscape in Time\n new for 2010 and presented by Ben Fogle.\nGuests can enjoy a memorable setting and a multitude of activities on this lovingly preserved estate including the Historic Working Farm - where the land is worked with heavy horses to preserve a way of life before the age of the tractor. This visitor attraction is a firm favourite with families.

Including Shrewsbury to the north on the banks of the River Severn and Ludlow to the south in its medieval castle setting.

    We were disappointed with the accommodation. This is a beautiful old house in a wonderful rural setting but everything is a little tired and a lot of upgrading is required to make it a more attractive place to stay and having no toilet or bathroom upstairs is not ideal. Also, very importantly, the lodge is only really suitable for 6 adults (not up to 11 as stated) as three of the beds are 2ft 6 singles which are only suitable for young children and in the winter, when it's wet & windy, the garden hut is not really suitable for sleeping in.



    out of 10

    Pros: Warm and atmospheric, beautiful location, characterful, good for large groups. Cons: No WiFi, limited kitchen utensils, cookware and glasses, limited firewood.

    There was a lovely Christmas tree



    out of 10

    Arrived in the afternoon and was welcomed in and shown what was what, the property is lovely just like surrounding and on its own no other people about, there is always wildlife around, at night the sky’s are amazing as there is no light pollution, walks straight from the house, plenty to see and do with a short drive, pubs and shops a short drive away, we had a couple of issues that was quickly sorted out, a top holiday, we will be back.

    We've just returned from a lovely weekend at The Shooting Lodge as a family celebrating my father's 80th birthday. The property is beautiful and so full of character and history. Some of the rooms are perhaps a little dated now (bathrooms and little kitchen area) but that pales into insignificance compared to the rest of the house, gardens and little cabin outside. The views are fantastic too. Just a walk away from Acton Scott historic working farm which is well worth a visit. Such a lovely, unique holiday home...thoroughly recommend!

    The place was perfect for a friends weekend away and felt like a really unique find. The area around is stunning and there are good walks from the door.

    We had a lovely week at the shooting lodge. It is a rustic rural retreat set in beautiful countryside. The stars are amazing on a clear night. The dining/living room is super for a large family. The kitchen is large but could do with some up to date equipment. The bedrooms are all pretty. The working farm is a must to visit and there are some great towns to visit - Ludlow was our favourite with the castle. It is a Friday to Friday let so be aware as it still comes up as available even if you put Sat to Sat dates in (this caught me out).
