Interesting "lived-in" hall
Mar 2016
In a beautiful setting. We were taken around the hall by the owner's wife. A nice, relaxed and informative tour. Lots of interesting tales, and quite a lot of pottery ( if you are interested in this!). Make sure you visit the dovecote near the Hall, and the church adjacent to the Hall is well worth a visit too. Worth making the effort to get here on one of the days it is open.

A must to visit. Only open 1 afternoon a week but worth the trek. The owner took us through this lovely home and gave us personal stories about the house. The house is so picturesque and the views and gardens are stunning. Please see the huge dovecote. This home is not to be missed.

The real England
Sep 2015 • Solo
Shipton Hall is a perfect example of provincial Elizabethan domestic architecture - grand and intimate at the same time. What I loved about it was the almost complete lack of commercialisation. Shipton is still a family home, and the visitor has the sense of experiencing something real, rather than some semi-artificial product of the tourist industry. Set in delightful walled garden adjacent to a historic church, the house is set in glorious Shropshire countryside with long views over Corve Dale. If you are depressed about the state of the country - a visit to Shipton will remind you of the real England that still thrives despite everything!

Superb Shropshire!
Aug 2015 • Couples
On a dull,damp Bank Holiday Sunday we visited this lovely and magical collection of buildings,representing a thousand years of our proud history: well cared for church founded in the eight hundreds; superb stone dovecote from the thirteen hundreds; a house to die for from the fifteen hundreds and an elegant,impressive stable block from the seventeen hundreds: the whole surrounded by a gentle atmosphere-filled garden:all like the surrounding garden, so obviously lovingly cared for.
Our tour was so well thought through and proudly conducted by the Lady of the house,who unhurriedly enthused us with her knowledge. She also graciously allowed us to walk our well behaved dogs round the gardens and pointed out a lovely bridle track to the nearby Elizabethan house,Wilderhope Manor, another English treasure. A day to be remembered. Thank you Mrs Bishop.

Interesting House and Lovely Gardens
May 2015 • Couples
My wife and I had rejoined the HHA (£75)(visited 27 properties last year) and decided to visit Shipton Hall over the May Bank Holiday Monday to which we found the tour ( approx 30 mins £6 Free HHA members) by the charming present lady owner interesting and informative.
The Elizabethen Manor House which situates in the Dovecote Valley was built by Richard Lutwyche in around 1587 and built of grey limestone who gave it to his daughter on her marriage to Thomas Mytton (lived in the hall till 1795) and then to Thomas More. At the end of the 19th century it was sold to the great grandfather of the present owner.
Inside the house is Georgian rocco decor with Tudor panelling and timberwork.
Outside there is the Dovecote,stables and the nearby Saxon church.

Open Easter-End of Sept on Thurs 2.30-5.30 and also Sundays and Mondays on Bank Holidays. Telephone 01746 785225
