North Hill Farm
Set on a hilltop overlooking one of the most lovely valleys in Shropshire, North Hill Farm offers bed and breakfast to suit all pockets, including a cottage which is also available for self-catering. The Farm has been run as a bed and breakfast for seventeen years and many guests have become friends who come back again and again.
All B&B rooms have views of the valley with digital TVs and tea & coffee making facilities. Red Kite is a stone-built cottage room with a kitchen and private terrace. This comfortable and spacious room is ideal for a longer ‘get-away-from-it-all’ stay and is also available for self-catering, with optional breakfast.
Well-behaved, clean dogs are welcome and we also cater for guests with their own horses. There is plenty of parking plus facilities for motorbikes or bicycles to be under cover and an area for hosing down.
We take breakfast seriously at North Hill Farm, believing it sets you up for the day. Our Aga-cooked breakfasts come on hot plates and are served in the dining room which was originally the farm’s cowshed, a light, airy room with a great atmosphere.
Guests can leave the car here and walk over the surrounding hills, part of the Environmentally Sensitive Area. The area is largely free of light pollution and on clear nights the dark skies display the full impact of the stars.
The majestic views take in a panorama of the Shropshire Hills from Wilstone Hill to Wenlock Edge. The ideal place for anyone who loves the peace of the countryside, whilst being central for Shropshire’s many attractions. Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Ironbridge are all around 30 minutes away by car and it’s just a short drive to Acton Scott Historic Farm.
If you fancy being creative during your stay, how about a short course on willow crafts? Learn how to create beautiful baskets and other lovely objects from our neighbour Sophie Francis who offers tuition to small groups or individuals.
Shropshire remains one of the least discovered gems of Britain – it’s a great place to simply stand and stare. The County is comparatively unspoiled – it has that elusive air of a time warp, where people are polite and friendly with time to spare. For those who know and love its landscape and history, Shropshire is a very special place, somewhere to escape to and unwind, in a County which offers a less hectic pace of life. Apart from Housman’s Blue Remembered Hills and the evocative writing of Mary Webb and Malcolm Saville, Shropshire pops up in all sorts of unexpected places, mentioned incidentally in books and films as somewhere desirable and far away.
