Whitton Hall is a family run B&B in the heart of the Shropshire/Welsh borders. Guests can enjoy a delicious breakfast before choosing to relax and unwind in the peace and quiet of the beautiful gardens or they can venture further afield and explore some of the medieval market towns and castles near by.
What makes a stay at Whitton Hall unique?
A stay at Whitton Hall is like stepping back in time. There is a warm welcome as it is still a family home and the gardens are lovingly kept by the owners, Christopher & Gill, who have retired to the adjacent Garden Cottage. Their daughter Kate now lives in the house and runs the B&B with her great friend Anna. One guest recently used the word 'serendipity' to describe his visit to this small corner of Shropshire heaven. Wonder around the woodland gardens and watch bird life around the lake. Leave all your worries behind.
