Sample English country life in an Elizabethan manor house offering a very relaxing holiday.

Historic Soulton Hall is a striking country house in the intriguing, unspoilt county of Shropshire. Still cherished as the family home of the Ashtons for over 450 years, it combines the comfort of a luxury Country House Hotel with a friendly and distinctly personal approach.

Soulton Hall enjoys a unique location: approached over an ancient stone bridge crossing a babbling brook in glorious Shropshire countryside. Beyond Soulton Hall's tranquil walled gardens lies 500 acres of private country estate and woodland.

While Soulton Hall itself might seem imposing at first, it is a friendly house which loves to celebrate. Centrally located, with good transport connections, it is an ideal place to draw people together from across the UK. Here you'll find exceptional food (much of it brought from our gardens or our farm, or else our wonderful country location), a well stocked wine cellar, and friendly company.

Soulton offers timeless peace and quiet for total relaxation and refreshment, yet the spires of the enchanting town of Shrewsbury and the old city of Chester lie only a short drive away.

The Ashton family and their staff look forward to welcoming you here.

...from the North

From Manchester, Liverpool and the north it is advisable to travel via Chester and Whitchurch. Leave Chester by the A41. At Whitchurch follow the signs for the A49 to Shrewsbury (DO NOT take the B5476 to Wem). Turn right off the A49 onto the B5065 at Prees Green. Proceed down the B5065 for about two miles. Soulton Hall is on the left, shortly after a humpbacked bridge.

...from the South and East

The M6 Toll has significantly improved the speed and reliability of journeys around Birmingham. The toll is reasonable. If the M6 Toll is appropriate for your journey it is well worth using it.

...from London via the M1, M6 and points to the east

Take the M1 as far as junction 19, then take the M6. Follow this as far as junction 3a. Here join the M6 Toll. Take this as far as junction T8 (the second junction after the toll booths). Now follow instructions under the heading "...from the M6 toll" (below).

...from London, Oxford and the Thames Valley via the M40

Follow the M40 to the end and then join the M42 heading north at junction 3a (signed M42, the north, M1, M6, Birmingham Central, Solihull). Pick up the M6 Toll and follow it to junction T8 (the second junction after the toll booths). Now follow instructions under the heading "...from the M6 toll" (below).

...from the M6 Toll

Take the A460 (signed to Wolverhampton) which crosses the M6 at junction 11 and continue to meet the M54 at junction 1. Head for Telford - the M54 becomes the A5. Leave the A5 for the A49 (signed for Whitchurch) at the first roundabout. Follow the A49 for approximately 10 miles, until you reach Prees Green. At Prees Green turn left onto the B5065 signed to Wem. Follow this for about two miles. Soulton Hall is on your left shortly after a humpbacked bridge.
