Chevaliers Moat House makes the perfect base for a family or two couples who are wanting to explore beautiful Shropshire, with its historical attractions, scenic walks and gastro hotspots. Set in a secluded hamlet, close to Bridgnorth and Much Wenlock, this newly converted barn makes a fantastic home for those seeking a relaxing rural escape.

The Moat House has been recently refurbished and today boasts modern interiors and furnishings however the beautiful, original high oak beams have enabled the barn to retain its unique charm and character. Upon entering the property through the artisan crafted studded oak front door, guests will enter into the large open-plan entertaining area. At one end of this space is the living area which comes complete with homely country checked designer sofas and a top of the range log burner, a cosy spot to relax after a long day spent exploring the Shropshire region. The bespoke fitted kitchen can be found at the other end of this room and boasts all the necessary amenities a budding chef could possibly need as well as a formal dining table. The two bedrooms are both equal in size, helping to avoid any arguments! The king-size rooms both boast luxury en-suite bathrooms complete with indulgent White Company toiletries.

Outside, the south-facing private garden terrace makes a tranquil spot from which to enjoy your morning cup of coffee or a sundowner at the end of an exciting day!

Just a minutes’ walk away from the Moat House, is Chevaliers Gatehouse, this is the perfect option for those in larger groups. Alternatively, it is possible to rent Chevaliers Estate, a combination of the Gatehouse, the Moat House and a further Coach House in order to accommodate parties of up to eight or twelve guests (subject to availability).

What you should know…

  • Situated down narrow country lanes 2.5 miles from the main road, the house may be better for quiet evenings in
  • The Moat House does have neighbouring properties however guests will still have plenty of privacy with the private garden terrace and patio
  • Due to the rural location the internet speed is variable and can fluctuate when demand is high

This home is a part of our Great Value and Heritage Collection!

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

Chevaliers Moat House is situated within a secluded hamlet deep in the Shropshire countryside, but lies within four and a half miles of historic Bridgnorth and four miles of the pretty market town of Much Wenlock. Next to the Hall is the historic Norman church of St Michael with its 12th century wall paintings and famous 12th century font.

Chevaliers Moat House remains a haven of peace and rural beauty today – an ideal place to explore Shropshire and the Heart of England, from the gastronomic centre of Ludlow to the Ironbridge Gorge Museum, the Shropshire hills and many other historic houses and gardens, including the Dower House Gardens in nearby Morville of Dr Katherine Swift (author of the bestselling book The Morvile Hours) and the world famous nursery gardens of David Austin Roses.

Bridgnorth, four miles away, is an attractive market town famous for its funicular railway and the many flights of steps which connect the High and Low Towns. Regular steam trains also run from here along the Severn Valley Railway. The town has many charming pubs and bistro restaurants, as well as high street shops, a supermarket and a cinema.

Much Wenlock, five miles away, has been voted the second most beautiful town in England. You can stroll around the ruins and grounds of the ancient Wenlock and Buildwas Abbeys (Wenlock Abbey was one of the most important in the 15th century), go antique shopping, visit the local Olympian museum, browse for second hand books (Wenlock Books won the coveted Independent Bookseller of the Year award in 2006) or go shopping at the artisan shops and galleries or the traditional butcher, Ryan’s, that has won a national award for Best Butcher in Britain.

Half an hour’s drive away to the south-west is historic Ludlow, one of the gastro capitals of England with award winning Michelin restaurants, secluded gastro-pubs, historic market square and famous castle ruins where the two ‘Princes of the Tower’ were brought up in the late 15th century. To the north-west, also half an hour away, is historic Shrewsbury, birthplace of Charles Darwin, with its old cathedral, market squares, theatre and riverside restaurants.

Chevaliers Moat House is conveniently located for access to the M5, M6, M54 and M40 motorways. The nearest station is fifteen miles away with frequent inter-city trains from London, Manchester and Glasgow and services to Wales and the West Country.The nearest airport is Birmingham International Airport, approximately 40 miles away.
