  • Mr Vernon

    “Wyvern house was a perfect base for us, with a few local footpaths nearby and beautiful surroundings, it made our first holiday, post lockdown, really special.”


    The house had pretty much everything we could have wanted and was big enough for us as a family of 8 to never feel cramped, everyone had their own space when they wanted it. Lady Leighton showed us around and gave us a bit of info on the history of the building, she was always on hand if we had any questions too. We visited a couple of local national trust sites nearby and both were lovely, Powys Castle just across the border in Wales was great. Attingham Park was the real stand out for the children with lots for them to do in the field of play.

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.
