    • “Fantastic Location”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed at the gallery apartment for a week in september this year, upon driving up the long drive to the magnifient house we were greeted by Lady Leighton who could not have made us us feel more welcome. The apartment was huge and full of character. The estate borders Wales so there is easy access to Snowdonia etc all with 50 mile radius or so. If you want a peacefull break somewhere with real character & history this is definately the place.”

    • “We wanted to plan something special for our family who were travelling from america and we could not have been more pleased. The accommodation was very spacious, warm, homely and perfect for our family reunion. The grounds and setting was breathtaking, peaceful and so relaxing. The location was perfect for touring beautiful places in the surrounding area. Our Hosts were amazing they answered any need we had and opened up their home to us for a tour and history of the family home and grounds and the local history as well. Sir and Lady Leighton were gracious, kind and very welcoming hosts, we are very grateful to them. Our family still talk about our stay and would enjoy future family reunions there. I would happily and confidently recommend the Gallery apartment to anyone who would like to enjoy a very special experience.”

    • “It's not often you get the chance to stay in a country mansion and whilst we were only on a short break it was great to stay somewhere with fantastic character. A bonus was free entry to the car rally in the grounds which were not expecting. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.”

    • “The apartment was spacious and very comfortable you felt like you were guests rather than visitors, you could walk around the large grounds surrounded by trees and wildlife. It was very quite and the village was very nice. The only fault it was not within comfortable walking distance of shops or pubs.”

    • “We had a lovely family gathering last weekend. Peaceful, with great space, the most beautiful trees, and possibly the most comfortably bed and duvet I've ever slept in. It is the perfect place to retreat, celebrate, reflect and anything else you need to do. Thank goodness this space still exists.”

About the location


Shrewsbury 9 miles; Powis Castle 10 miles.

Loton Park is the 3000 acre ancestral home of the Leighton family, and was mentioned in the Domesday Book. The magnificent Grade II listed mansion is surrounded by lovely gardens and views over rolling farmland, and is home to a renowned deer park and the annual British Hill Climb Championship. The small rural village of Alberbury borders the estate and boasts a village pub, and is only 4 miles from the Offa's Dyke Pathway and 9 miles from historic Shrewsbury. Shrewsbury has been called England's finest Tudor town, with its timber framed, black and white buildings, as well as the ancient 'shuts' or passageways which connect them. There is a superb selection of shops, along with cafes, bars, restaurants and pubs. Visit Shrewsbury Abbey, Shrewsbury Castle, the NT's stately Attingham Park and Mansion or Powis and Chirk castles with their lovely gardens. Explore Wroxeter Roman City, the museums at Ironbridge World Heritage Site, or the castle and Michelin starred restaurants of Ludlow. Enjoy golf on the 9 hole course, paintball or quad biking, only a short drive away, or visit Acton Scott Working Farm, as featured in the "Victorian Farm" TV series.
