Lydbury North, Shropshire
A lovingly converted former chapel deep in the heart of the Shropshire Hills - with room for 4 and a secluded location
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
The Chapel at Walcot Hall is owned and managed by Walcot Hall.
Edging towards the Welsh border, deep in the Shropshire Hills, stately Walcot Hall is located on a vast country estate and is one of the area’s most popular wedding venues. However, nestling somewhere amongst its 30 acres of grounds, is this intriguing chapel. Nearly demolished, it now looks better than ever after a thorough renovation and welcomes guests seeking something a little different.
Within the leafy surroundings of beautiful Walcot Arboretum, the Chapel at Walcot Hall houses 2 double bedrooms, and the wood theme continues throughout the property. The best carpenters in the west have turned the chapel into a charming living space, so impressive it even got a visit from George Clarke on Channel 4’s ‘Amazing Spaces’.
An open-plan living area downstairs features antique furnishings, chapel organ included, and a kitchen with eye-catching Rayburn oven plus a fridge and washing machine. TV and DVD are available to you, as is a fine central dining area for cosy nights in full of dining and discussion.
Meander up the spiral staircase, and you will come to the mezzanine-level bedrooms. Imposing bedsteads sit under stained glass chapel windows, beneath the sloping wood-panelled ceiling. Central heating keeps the place warm, and a curtain provides a little privacy for each room. On the lower level, the bathroom with bath and overhead shower is just as beautifully appointed.
In the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Chapel at Walcot Hall enjoys the most rural of locations. The town of Ludlow, around 30 minutes’ drive away, is known as something of a foodie capital, boasting award-winning restaurants, food markets and dozens of welcoming inns. Just one of the town’s many historically significant buildings, Ludlow Castle, with its origins in the 11th century, continues to play a part in the town’s cultural scene today, hosting open-air theatre and festivals.
Acres of grounds wait to be explored at Walcot (and look out for the giant wooden bear). With an idyllic location like this, a stay at the Chapel at Walcot Hall has got to be good for the spirit.
