Windy Mundy Farm
Peacefully situated within the 1,000 acres of the Pitchford Estate, this property, which sleeps 16, offers spacious holiday accommodation.
Windy Mundy Farm has been converted from an 18th century threshing barn and has the ‘wow factor’. Built on top of a south-facing hill overlooking the Row Brook, it is surrounded by fields of wheat and barley and has spectacular, far-reaching views of the Shropshire hills. Enclosed by a long red sandstone wall, the farm has its own courtyard garden with a patio and barbecue. Our largest property with 16 beds. Book Windy Mundy Farm here
The Generals’ Quarters
Viewed by Country Life magazine as one of the most beautiful historic houses in the country, the West Wing of Pitchford Hall has been sensitively restored and turned into a seven double bedroomed holiday let, sleeping 14.
After a 16 month restoration the Pitchford Hall holiday let – Generals’ Quarters – now compliments the Estate’s three other holiday lets – Windy Mundy Farm, Stockbatch Granary and Tree House Barn.
Guests stay in the West Wing (the oldest part of the Hall constructed in 1549 but thought to be part of an earlier building from circa 1280) and a part of the Hall’s Northern Range. Named the Generals’ Quarters after a previous owner of the Hall (General Grant) the accommodation will consist of seven double bedrooms based on two periods of British History. The Tudors and the late Georgian/early Victorian period. Guests will notice the two distinct periods as they move around the General’s Quarters and be able to decide which period rooms they wish to sleep in. The let includes the Hall’s main oak panelled Dining Room – with a large table which easily seats all fourteen guests. Guests have their own private courtyard garden gently shaded by Yew Trees and are able to walk around the private thousand acre Estate.

Tree House Barn
Tree House Barn is in a Conservation Area because of its close proximity to the Grade 1 listed Pitchford Hall and the famous Pitchford Tree House (the oldest tree house in the world). Sleeps 4
The barn is set within the dairy cow grazed fields of Pitchford Park Farm, one of the three working farms on the Pitchford Estate.
Tree House Barn makes the most of the resources around the house. Water comes from a nearby well and renewable heating comes from an air source heat pump. Day time energy is most likely to come from the Estate’s solar farm. We’ve also planted trees and hedges to improve the habitat around the barns and the bat box is on one of the gables. The Barn does not have wifi so enjoy a a digital detox, the silence and the stars.
Inside, Tree House Barn consists of two double bedrooms (one double bed and two twin beds) a contemporary open plan kitchen and oak panelled sitting room. Both double bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. Like Windy Mundy Farm and Stockbatch Granary the internal spec is impressive with the kitchen by Metris, the bathrooms by CP Hart and the lighting is from the Barcelona based designer – Gema Povo.

Stockbatch Granary which sleeps 14 is reached by a mile-long drive passing through the fields of corn and grazing sheep of the 1,000 acres Pitchford Estate. It comprises an 18th-century granary, clapperboard barn, stables and cowsheds, and nestles on a south-facing slope, at the bottom of which a stream wends its way under an old red sandstone bridge.
A large courtyard garden enclosed by a stone wall gives a panoramic view of the Shropshire Hill Country. The owners’ flock of pedigree Zwartbles sheep graze in the field and the apple orchard just by the Granary.
