Glamping Shropshire with Hot Tub
Glamping with hot tub at Acton Scott Shropshire with Featherdown Country Retreats. Acton Scott estate is easily accessible from Birmingham and just over 3 hour’s drive from London. Tucked away in the Shropshire Hills, it offers some of the finest natural scenery in England. Panoramas of Ragleth Hill and the spectacular escarpment of Wenlock Edge evoke a rural idyll made famous by the poems of A.E. Housman’s ‘A Shropshire Lad’.
The Acton family has owned land here since the 12th century and today their 1,500 acre estate consists of several farmsteads, stone and timber framed cottages, ancient woodland and open pasture. As seen on BBC TV: The estate achieved national fame as the setting for television’s hugely popular ‘Victorian Farm ’series, acknowledging the Acton family’s tireless championing of sustainable practices. Its success was followed by another BBC show filmed entirely at Acton Scott.
Although Acton Scott Country Retreat is not a working farm with animals, the historic working farm depiction on the estate is a firm family favourite just a 10-minute walk from the tents. Recreating an 18th-century home farm for a picture of life as it might have been on a Victorian country estate, life unfolds daily while the land is worked by strong horses. The Old School Cafe is right there too for a bite to eat or drink.
There is no honesty shop but local shops are close to hand as are the prettiest market towns, including Shrewsbury to the north and Ludlow, a foodie paradise with Michelin star restaurants, to the south. At Acton Scott itself, the finest local produce can be delivered for your arrival. Based on self-catering, you and your loved ones can all pitch in for a slow-cooking meal on the wood burning stove in true Feather Down style and in a gorgeous setting for Shropshire glamping family holidays.
