Pitchford Hall (The Generals Quarters)

Viewed by Country Life magazine as one of the most beautiful historic houses in the country, the West Wing of Pitchford Hall has been sensitively restored and turned into a seven double bedroomed holiday let, sleeping 14. We've named the holiday let the Generals' Quarters.
After a 16 month restoration the Pitchford Hall holiday let - Generals' Quarters - now compliments the Estate's three other holiday lets - Windy Mundy Farm, Stockbatch Granary and Tree House Barn.

Guests stay in the West Wing (the oldest part of the Hall constructed in 1549 but thought to be part of an earlier building from circa 1280) and a part of the Hall's Northern Range. Named the Generals' Quarters after a previous owner of the Hall (General Grant) the accommodation will consist of seven double bedrooms based on two periods of British History. The Tudors and the late Georgian/early Victorian period. Guests will notice the two distinct periods as they move around the General's Quarters and be able to decide which period rooms they wish to sleep in. The let includes the Hall's main oak panelled Dining Room - with a large table which easily seats all fourteen guests. Guests have their own private courtyard garden gently shaded by Yew Trees and are able to walk around the private thousand acre Estate.

The Generals' Quarters can be booked through English Country Cottages under the property reference code: UKC2646
Pitchford Hall's Generals Quarters holiday let offers the following facilities:

Restoration Tours

After 25 years of being shut away and uninhabited, Pitchford Hall opened in Spring 2017 for guided 'restoration tours' booked in advance through Invitation to View. At the end of the 90 minute guided tour guests will be served a Shropshire tea in the oak panelled rooms and if the weather is suitable on the front South Lawn.

The guided tours are led by local experts and will allow access to many of the key rooms within Pitchford Hall and to the world famous Pitchford Tree House and see were Queen Victoria slept as a thirteen year old child. As the Hall is currently undergoing a restoration to secure its future you are likely to see some of the craftsmen at work and also witness the damage that was done to the Hall through being left empty for 25 years!

Pre booked group visits to the Hall should be booked directly with Invitation to View.
