Chevaliers Estate makes a magical setting for a group celebration or get-together, the Grade 1 historic estate is brimming with charm and character and holds a wonderful position within beautiful English countryside. The house is located in a secluded hamlet deep in unspoilt Shropshire countryside, making it a tranquil haven which is perfect for those really looking for an escape.

The bedroom accommodation is set across the Gatehouse, Moat House, Cider House and Coach House. The properties all offer guests the chance to ‘holiday in history’ with the opportunity to have privacy while still being set with 100 yards of friends and family in the other buildings. The Gatehouse, Moat House, Cider House and Coach House, each both two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The Gatehouse, Cider House, Moat House and Coach House, each come complete, with excellent living, kitchen and dining facilities.

The Dragon Hall makes a wonderful addition to the Estate and forms the centre piece of any group stay. It has been featured by critic William Sitwell in the Daily Telegraph. The huge beamed room has been decorated in gilt frescoes by the Jerwood prize winning artist Adam Dant in the style of a 15th century Florentine Palazzo. With a pair of huge baronial chandeliers, it has the atmosphere and decor of a private Mayfair club in the country. At one end is a large Palazzo-style working fireplace, with a selection of deep sofas, luxurious arm chairs, a huge velvet Ottoman and a hidden 'honour bar' in a Chinese mirrored cabinet. The long refectory oak dining table can seat up to 20 guests (adjustable to sit any number from 10 to 20 guests) with truffle velvet chairs that are modern replicas of the Elizabeth II Coronation chairs used in Westminster Abbey in 1953. This is the perfect place for the whole group to gather and enjoy a delicious meal. There is a professional kitchen with a double RangeMaster cooker with five ring gas top, extra electric hand commercial microwave. American-style fridge/freezer, drinks fridge, dishwasher, microwave and Wedgwood china and 'King's Plate' cutlery makes this the perfect private dining space for a memorable occasion. We have a list of local chefs who can cater for special dinners and meals, along with service staff.  Full English or Continental Breakfast can also be organised using the very finest local Shropshire produce. We also offer a self-catering option for those who wish to do their own cooking but may just want one or two catered special meals for the group stay. 

The shared and private gardens are just as beautiful with guests of the Estate having access to the historic gardens of the Hall. The Gatehouse has a private, enclosed garden complete with a fountain, dining facilities and a barbecue can be provided on request. The Cider House has beautiful French windows looking out onto a garden view with ancient woodland beyond. The Moat House and Coach House both boast their very own sun terraces, the perfect spots for guests to enjoy their morning coffee!


*For those in smaller parties who would still like to experience the beauty and history of Chevaliers Estate, it is possible to simply rent just the Gate House, Cider House or Moat House.

**Please note that those staying in groups of 12 or less will not have access to the private wing. For those in larger groups, photos of the wing are available upon request.

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
  • While the Gatehouse may not be best suited for those with limited mobility, accommodation is set out over one level in the Moat House and Coach House making it more suitable
  • Due to the rural location the internet speed is variable and can fluctuate when demand is high
  • The owners offer their in house catering and cannot accept bookings with local catering companies

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 Estate 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 Estate 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 Estate 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.

  • Fabulous!

    on 17/08/2023

    Fabulous accommodation. So much character. We were a party of 16 adults and 2 children who used the whole property. The owners were always approachable and helpful and we had a wonderful time. Oliver‘s Travels provided comprehensive accurate information about the property. Someone was always available and my questions were answered promptly.
