The Summer House is a Shropshire countryside retreat for two that's bathed in historic and rural luxury, attached to a unique octagonal tower.

This house has certainly seen its fair share of luminaries.  Built in 1607 by Sir Francis Newport, this imposing tower, set against a backdrop of rolling Shropshire countryside near the ancient Roman settlement at Wroxeter, was once used as a grand banqueting house.

These days, this Grade II listed tower is a stunning and private retreat for two, part of the imposing Raby Estate and featuring outstanding views of the Shropshire Hills.

The décor and architecture at The Summer House are a perfect blend of ancient and modern, with plenty of creative touches to marvel at as you wander round.  

The ground floor comprises a cosy and exquisitely decorated living space, complete with green countryside views that will be easy to get lost in.  You'll find a small kitchen here too, with a door that leads to a spiral staircase (underneath which is a modern shower room!)

Head up the stairs to discover a comfortably decorated double bedroom with sweeping country views, while outside you'll find a private lawn and patio area complete with charcoal barbecue and furniture - an ideal setting for those lively summertime conversations that continue well into the night.

Use The Summer House as a base to explore all the delights of Shropshire, from Wroxeter Roman City to the industrial town of Ironbridge, or Shrewsbury town centre for those who enjoy a spot of riverside shopping!
