The Official Tourism Website for Shropshire

Are you planning a stay at our picturesque B&B? Nestled in the heart of the countryside, our charming bed and breakfast serves as the perfect base for exploring the beauty of the surrounding area. One of the benefits of staying at Mynd House is its proximity to several National Trust properties, each offering a unique glimpse into England’s rich history and natural wonders. Here are 10 National Trust properties you can easily visit during your stay:

1. Attingham Park: Just a short drive from Mynd House, Attingham Park boasts an elegant Georgian mansion surrounded by acres of parkland, woodland, and deer park. Explore the opulent rooms of the mansion and wander through the beautiful gardens designed by Humphry Repton.

2. Benthall Hall: Immerse yourself in the charm of Benthall Hall, a quintessential Tudor manor surrounded by lush gardens and rolling countryside. Wander through the historic house and enjoy afternoon tea in the picturesque surroundings.

3. Berrington Hall: Standing proud and strong, this fine Georgian mansion sits within ‘Capability’ Brown’s final garden and landscape. In the house, discover jewel-like interiors, designed by Henry Holland and home to the Harley, Rodney and Cawley families.

4. Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd: Lace up your hiking boots and head to Carding Mill Valley, where you can embark on scenic walks across the Long Mynd hills. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Shropshire countryside and discover diverse wildlife along the way.

5. Chirk Castle: Cross the border into Wales and visit Chirk Castle, a magnificent medieval fortress overlooking the Ceiriog Valley. Explore the grand interiors, manicured gardens, and extensive estate grounds.

6. Croft Castle and Parkland: Discover the stories of Croft Castle, a stately home set amidst a sprawling estate in Herefordshire. Explore the house’s rich history and roam through ancient woodlands, orchards, and parkland.

7. Dudmaston Working Estate: Enchanted wooded parkland, sweeping gardens and a house with a surprise, Dudmaston is something unexpected in the Shropshire countryside. A much-loved home for over 875 years you will find the family rooms scattered with photos and perhaps an odd pair of shoes or two peeping out from under a table. The unexpected galleries create a total contrast, with their formal, crisp lines.

8. Powis Castle and Garden: Step back in time at Powis Castle, a medieval fortress adorned with lavish interiors and stunning terraced gardens. Marvel at the extensive collection of paintings, furniture, and treasures accumulated over centuries of history.

9. Wenlock Edge: Experience the tranquillity of Wenlock Edge, a limestone escarpment offering miles of walking trails through ancient woodlands and wildflower meadows. Keep an eye out for rare flora and fauna as you explore this natural haven.

10. Wightwick Manor and Gardens: Marvel at the Arts and Crafts splendour of Wightwick Manor, a Victorian masterpiece filled with Pre-Raphaelite paintings, William Morris wallpapers, and exquisite artisanry. Stroll through the enchanting gardens inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement.

With Mynd House B&B as your cozy retreat, you can embark on a memorable journey through history, culture, and natural beauty at these remarkable National Trust properties. Whether you’re a history enthusiast, nature lover, or simply seeking a peaceful escape, there’s something for everyone to enjoy within easy reach of this charming countryside retreat.

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
