Baysdale Abbey, the principal dwelling on the Estate, has been renovated for holiday accommodation for up to 17 guests and is available to let on a weekly basis. The Abbey is situated in a secluded valley accessed by a 2.5 mile single track no through road over the moorland. The traditional buildings adjacent to the Abbey have recently been converted into two holiday cottages which accommodate between 4-6 guests each.
Baysdale Abbey, is a stunning stone farmhouse. It’s the principal dwelling on the Estate and has been renovated for holiday accommodation for up to 17 guests and is available to let on a weekly basis or for short breaks; 4 night bookings – to be taken Monday – Thursday or 3 night bookings – Friday to Sunday.
It’s great for family holidays or for special parties and celebrations.
The traditional Grade II listed stone buildings adjacent to the Abbey have recently been converted into two holiday cottages (Ingleby Barn sleeps 4 and Westerdale Barn sleeps 6). These are available to be let individually or as a whole, ideal for a large family gathering.
They are great for a weekend away with the girls or with the extended family.
The properties are set on a working farm where sheep and cattle graze (farm machinery – children must be supervised) and there are many footpaths radiating from the properties in order to explore the glorious North Yorkshire Moors National Park.
The Burwarton Estate is located in Shropshire, more specifically between Ludlow and Bridgnorth. The Estates comprise of 11,000 acres in the vicinity of the Brown Clee Hill which, at 540m, is the highest point in the county. The Estate is picturesque and part of it even lies within the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty!
The family inherited the estate in 1807. This followed the marriage in 1796 of Harriet, daughter of Benjamin Baugh, to Hon Gustavus Hamilton, later 6th Viscount Boyne. During the 19th century, the estate was further enlarged until some 8,500 acres was sold in 1919. This reduced the estate to a core comprising the three parishes of Burwarton, Cleobury North and Aston Botterell.
The landscape of the estate has remained much the same over the years, with considerable amounts of woodland being planted and pools being constructed on the Brown Clee Hill. The Bridge pool is thought to have been created in the 1830s as a fire pool for the house.
There are also the pools known as Brancepeth and Boyne Water, which is approximately 1.5km from the main house. This became the graveyard to a German plane during one of the World Wars. It now thrives with wildlife and is a real beauty spot on the Estate.
