The outside of The Summer House


The Summer Houses is a unique and romantic Grade II listed tower and the perfect choice for a country retreat.  Set in the rolling countryside of Telford and Shropshire and close to The Wrekin Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, famous UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge and historic Shrewsbury. The Summer House is also a great location for business visitors and those attending conventions at the nearby Telford International Centre.  With its central location, it provides a home from home for executives.  

The building, now part of the Raby Estate, has been sympathetically modernised to accommodate guests. This provides a very private and unique getaway. The Octagonal Tower was built in around 1607 by Sir Francis Newport was originally used as a banqueting house for entertaining his guests to dinner. Unfortunately the main house was destroyed by a fire and never rebuilt and therefore The Summer House is the only remaining structure from that time.

The property is tucked away in the hamlet of Eyton-on-Severn, near the ancient Roman settlement at Wroxeter and is surrounded by stunning countryside. Immediately to the East rises the Wrekin, to the south lies the River Severn, and beyond can be seen the Shropshire Hills, the last English heights before the Welsh border.

All of the surrounding countryside can be readily explored from the Summer House. You can stroll amongst the fields and lanes directly from the door via nearby public footpaths, or explore further afield into Shropshire and the border counties.
