Luxury house sleeping 19 with a hot tub and cinema room, for girls weekends and special occasions near Shrewsbury

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Wollaston Lodge, Halfway House, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, sleeps 14-19 in 7 bedrooms.

Wollaston Lodge occupies a rural position in Shropshire, close to Shrewsbury and the Welsh border. An important house dating from 1840, the Lodge is now a home from home, elegant but relaxed, with every comfort required to make your stay a pleasure.

The accommodation is spacious, beautifully furnished and comfortable. Each of the 5 bedrooms in the main house is in a different style: French, traditional British and contemporary. All have an en suite or private bathroom. Two further bedrooms, ideal for a family, are found in the Coach House, adjacent but entirely separate - a great choice for families holidaying together or multi-generational family groups. The Coach house benefits from two single beds on the ground floor, ideal for the elderly or infirmed.

A large lounge, with sofas and a TV, provides a comfortable space for relaxing. The Orangery, with a dining table for up to 20, is a bright space, with doors opening onto the gardens beyond.

The house looks out onto the Italianate gardens and terraces, filled with mature plants and offering many quiet and secluded places for peace and contemplation, summerhouse, benches and a hammock. For those seeking a little more action, there is a tennis court and racquets to borrow. The tennis court also has football nets and netball posts, all balls provided. There is a table tennis table in the open garage.

The historic and unspoilt market town of Shrewsbury is close by, with a wealth of interesting shops and restaurants. Country walks are just outside the door, and canoeing and other activities can be arranged for you locally. The hills around Church Stretton are a great spot for wonderful walking as well as Snowdonia, and Ludlow, a little further south, is a gastronomic paradise.

Wollaston Lodge is a great base for wedding parties with a reception at Rowton Castle, a beautiful venue only 3 miles away, or for some of your wedding guests. Special occasions, celebrations, girls weekends away together, family gatherings and corporate groups are all welcome.
