    Loton Park is the ancestral home of the Leighton family, and was mentioned in the Domesday Book. The Grade II listed mansion is surrounded by gardens and views over rolling farmland, and is home to a renowned deer park and the annual British Hill Climb Championship. Shrewsbury has been called England's finest Tudor town, with its timber framed, black and white buildings, as well as the ancient 'shuts' or passageways which connect them. There is a superb selection of shops, along with cafes, bars, restaurants and pubs. Visit Shrewsbury Abbey, Shrewsbury Castle, the NT's stately Attingham Park and Mansion or Powis and Chirk castles with their gardens. Explore Wroxeter Roman City, the museums at Ironbridge World Heritage Site, or the castle and Michelin starred restaurants of Ludlow.
    A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.

    Mrs Catherine Roberts, Blandford Forum, Dorset
    "We had a lovely family gathering last weekend. Peaceful, with great space, the most beautiful trees, and possibly the most comfortably bed and duvet I've ever slept in. It is the perfect place to retreat, celebrate, reflect and anything else you need to do. Thank goodness this space still exists."
    Mr Prentice, Andover, Hampshire
    "We absolutely loved staying at this fantastic house. The apartment was so spacious and had wonderful country views from all windows. There is a lot to do in the vicinity. All in all, we loved this unique venue and we were made most welcome by the host. Highly recommended."

    "The property was excellent, based in a country manor with lovely gardens, quite secluded and very quiet. How often can you have your own apartment in a large country home."

    "The location and the apartment were great, what an awesome setting with beautiful architecture and gardens. And even when the weather turned cold the rooms were very warm which is surprising in a big house. We all had a lovely time."
