This B&B may be a bit pricier than the other establishments BUT you get real value for money here. The location is fantastic, the suites are both comfortable and luxurious, the history is fascinating and the hosts are wonderful. Our room... More

I have never stayed in anywhere with so much character in my life, the beams were great although my boyfriend had a few bumps to his head, they were worth it. The bed was... More

Having spent a few days in South Wales we decided to stop off for a couple of nights in the beautiful and historic town of Shrewsbury. The Old House is indeed old...probably dating back to 1520. Thanks to Tony's optional tour we learned this and many other Tudor facts which brought alive the experience of staying in such a fantastic... More

We decided to visit Shrewsbury on impulse and after reading the reviews with fingers crossed I rang and asked if there was any availability. Luckily there was a suite vacant and we were not disappointed. Tony gave us a warm welcome and helped us with parking the car. The suite was very spacious, comfortable, full of character and had an... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Old House in Dogpole sits on an original Anglo-Saxon plot leading down to the River Severn. After the Norman Conquest in 1066, Shrewsbury was fortified and the town wall cut through the garden, but the plot remained intact. The house was rebuilt as a timber framed Tudor mansion around two massive brick chimneys in the late 1490s and retains much of this original character. The house had strong connections with Catherine of Aragon. She married Arthur (brother of Henry VIII) at nearby Ludlow Castle in South Shropshire where she finally returned after her divorce from her later marriage to Henry VIII. Members of the Rocke family were courtiers of Catherine and also owners of The Old House, and there is a tradition that Mary Tudor stayed in the house on her way to visit her mother. ... more   less
