The Summer House details

The Summer House and Octagonal Tower built in around 1607 by Sir Francis Newport was originally used as a banqueting house for entertaining his guests to dinner. Unfortunately the main house was destroyed by a fire and never rebuilt and therefore The Summer House is the only remaining structure from that time. Today, this Grade II listed tower forms an airy retreat, set in the rolling Shropshire countryside. It offers excellent views to the East, and views of the Shropshire Hills to the South and the West. The building, now part of the Raby Estate, has been sympathetically modernised to accommodate guests. This provides a very private and unique getaway.

The property is tucked away in the hamlet of Eyton-on-Severn, near the ancient Roman settlement at Wroxeter and is surrounded by stunning countryside. Immediately to the East rises the Wrexin, a formidable hill said to be the result of a giant depositing a spade of earth he had intended to use to bury Telford. To the south lies the River Severn, and beyond can be seen the Shropshire Hills, the last English heights before the Welsh border. All of the surrounding countryside can be readily explored from the Summer House. You can stroll amongst the fields and lanes directly from the door via nearby public footpaths, or explore further afield into Shropshire and the border counties.
