This is a stunning Grade I Listed Elizabethan manor in the heart of the Shropshire countryside. Great care was taken to ensure that alterations to the building were sympathetic. Consultation with National Trust was continuous throughout the project to ensure that details were appropriate.
The aim was to maximise space in the building to cater for the needs of all visitors and create a 76 bed hostel. The hostel appeals to a wide spectrum of customers and is used as an education facility and venue for wedding parties.
