Buckatree Hall Hotel
Refreshingly different, Buckatree Hall Hotel in Telford is a renowned country house hotel at the foot of the famous Wrekin hill in tranquil Shropshire.
The hotel’s lakeside restaurant offers a choice of perfectly cooked contemporary cuisine in addition to the stylishly decorated Lander Bar & Lounge with a selection of lighter and more traditional meals.
The Hall is believed to have derived its name from stag hunting days when a buck was found here in the fork of a tree.

Shropshire may be one of England’s quiet counties but don’t be deceived; there’s still plenty to see and do.
It has more than 90 places to visit – historic houses and castles with beautiful gardens, the famous Ironbridge, museums and family attractions.
Shropshire is one of the least crowded and most peaceful areas of England, making it an ideal place to get away from it all.
DAY 1: After completing our local pick-up route we head towards Telford, with suitable lunch and refreshment stops en-route. Aiming to arrive at our hotel in good time to freshen up before dinner.

Our visit includes a costume guided tour – insight on the history of the farm, the people who lived and worked there and about the various TV shows that have been filmed here. You can also have a go at making your own butter in the table top churns and bake a roll. A delightful cream tea will also be served.
DAY 3: After some free time in the morning, we embark on a specialised boat cruise in the afternoon. From Froncysyllte, we journey through the Welsh borderlands along the Llangollen canal. The canal boat takes you to the spectacular Pontcysyllte Aquaduct – more than 1,000ft long and transporting water 137ft above the valley floor. The whole length of the canal has been nominated for World Heritage Site status.
DAY 4: Today we visit the Shugborough Estate. Explore the mysterious ancestral home of the Earls of Lichfield, set in 900 acres of English countryside in the heart of Staffordshire. Shugborough has rolling swathes of lush green parkland, historic woodlands and Grade I listed formal gardens which frame a perfect riverside setting. The fine Georgian mansion house, with magnificent views over riverside garden terraces, features stunning collections of porcelain. With rumoured connections to the Holy Grail, the classical landscape is peppered with unusual monuments.
