The Engine House, Welsh Marches, Shropshire, sleeps 12-20 in 2 bedrooms.

Nantmawr is located right in the middle of Britain on the scenic Welsh Marches outside the market town of Oswestry. The location is perfect for reunions and get-togethers involving people from all over the country.

The Engine House is part of a beautiful 250-acre country estate centred around Nantmawr Quarry, an activity venue.

The building itself was originally used by the quarry's blacksmiths. Built from limestone and restored to a high standard the Engine House is a venue with a difference. Bring your own food, wine and music to have a really special weekend without breaking the bank!
