Stayed just the 1 night in the Catherine of Aragon Suite. Absolutely gorgeous place, steeped in history. Beautiful room, well stocked with tea/coffee etc. and my stay also included a bottle of bubbly, which was wonderful. Both Tony and Fred were extremely welcoming and helpful, to the extent of valet parking my car! The tour of the house was fascinating, and breakfast delicious. Would highly recommend, sorry I couldn't stay longer :)
- 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
