For the very first time in 2018, cottages.com will be offering holidaymakers a unique and rare opportunity to holiday in a former Royal retreat as it introduces the newly restored, Grade I-listed West Wing of Pitchford Hall in Shropshire to its impressive portfolio.
The let will be named the ‘Generals’ Quarters’ in honour of two previous owners.
The stunning Pitchford Hall hosted Queen Victoria, who holidayed there as a thirteen year old Princess in 1832. A wealth of Royal links throughout the property’s history also include its important role as an official safehouse for our current Queen and members of the Royal Family during World War II; one of just three country houses in the UK selected to provide sanctuary for the monarchy should they have needed to leave Buckingham Palace in the event of a German invasion.
In the beautiful grounds of the Pitchford Estate, seeking out the Grade-I listed treehouse is a must! Believed to be the oldest in the world, it dates back to 1692 and is perched within a lime tree (also believed to be the oldest in the British Isles).
The treehouse, recorded in Queen Victoria’s diaries, is where she enjoyed tea with close friends. Now guests staying on the Pitchford Estate can book to visit the treehouse and discover the magic for themselves.
Pitchford Hall has been lovingly restored over the past year by a range of local Shropshire craftsmen, carefully protecting original features and undergoing major renovation works to return the property to its former glory after more than a quarter of a century of neglect under the previous owner.
The black and white Tudor exterior is complimented by luxurious interiors, including an original Tudor allure across the ground floor, and elegant Georgian inspired bedrooms.
The accommodation sleeps up to 14 in seven double bedrooms, and is the perfect place for large families and groups of friends to gather for celebrations or enjoy a reunion weekend in style.
Bookings for The Pitchford Estate – The Generals’ Quarters are being taken now for arrivals from May 2018. Holidaymakers can book breaks on a three, four and seven-night basis at cottages.com.
