Upton Cressett Hall: Sixteenth century moated Elizabethan manor with turreted gatehouse set in remote and beautiful Shropshire countryside near market towns of Bridgnorth and Ludlow. Upton Cressett’s famous gatehouse, featuring original oak spiral staircase and rare 16th century ornamental plasterwork, compares to the Sissinghurst Tower. The property was admired by Nicolas Pevsner and is included in Simon Jenkins’ Best Houses of Britain who described it as an 'Elizabethan gem'. Country Life described the house as ‘a splendid example of the English manor at its most evocative’.
The Hall was the historic home of the Cressett family for centuries, before the Cash family began living there in 1971. A royalist stronghold in the Civil war, Sir Francis Cressett was Treasurer to Charles I. Prince Rupert stayed in the gatehouse as have prime ministers. The Hall, gatehouse and gardens are now open all year to groups by appointment.
Of special interest is the restored Great Hall dining room with a unique Tudor hand-painted ceiling, and the main newel staircase reminiscent of Knole, both completed by the acclaimed artist Adam Dant. The gatehouse is also available for let, and the grounds for wedding receptions, events, concerts and filming.
