The Official Tourism Website for Shropshire

There was plenty of tail wagging excitement at Marrington Lodge this week as the latest luxury holiday rental from Marrington Escapes in Chirbury, South Shropshire opened its doors for the first time.

The Lodge, the original gatehouse to Marrington Hall on the 500-acre rural holiday estate, welcomed two of the business’s most discerning regulars to sniff out the beautifully refurbished dog-friendly holiday home.

The canine couple, Pepper, a glossy black shih tzu along with her beau, 13 year old spaniel Bumper, had dressed for the occasion, Pepper sporting a designer diamante bow accessory created especially for the event, with her companion opting for a sartorial red silk bow tie.

The dogs took a tour around the spacious and secure garden with its vista across the estate grounds noting the hot tub for relaxing en plein air, and the firepit for outdoor feasting, before checking out the three-bedroom property’s interior design.

Accessed through ancient stone pillars at the entrance of the Marrington Estate, the refurbishment team at Marrington Escapes have created a relaxing space for six guests and pets, offering comfort, style and access to some of the county’s most breath-taking views and country walks across the private estate.

Chris Morris, Director of family run Marrington Escapes explained more about the latest addition to the collection: “We’re delighted to be bringing this latest property into our holiday portfolio and given how many of our visitors love to bring their furry friends, we felt our VIP guests set exactly the right tone for the celebrations.

“The whole team here in our family business have worked hard to ensure that our renovations complement not only the original buildings but their rural environments, adding in luxury refinements and facilities to make for a special holiday experience. We pride ourselves on our personal touches and certainly customer feedback tells us this is why so many return again and again to stay with us.

The earliest historical reference to this beautiful estate appears in the Domesday Book of 1086, so our guests enjoy a genuine taste of ancient woodlands, valleys and meadows when they stay.”

The Marrington Escapes collection now offers 8 individually styled houses and have just been awarded Silver in the New Tourism Business of the Year 2024 West Midlands Tourism Awards and recently featured in The Times, Daily Mail and Country and Townhouse magazine.

"🏰✨ 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?
