Ryton Grange - the place to revisit.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of twelve plus one dog staying at Ryton Grange for Christmas. The farmhouse was easy to find and the description on the website of inside certainly was right. Creaky floors and a lovely winding old staircase and low beams. Comfortable bedrooms and a fantastic fully equipped kitchen.The wood burner was a bonus.The bathrooms were very modern and we couldn't fault the cleanliness. There was a yummy chocolate cake waiting for us and flowers in some rooms. Richard popped round to welcome us and when we had a query about the recycling he came on the same day. We would certainly recommend this property to family and friends. We only managed one walk around the village and noticed a few public foot path signs. We had a meal in The Fox, a few minutes down the road, which was cooked well and tasty.

a lovely stay in a beautiful house which has given us lots of happy memories

  • 5 of 5

the house is beautiful and the first impressions were really positive. there were 11 in our party and several people commented that the house looked bigger and nicer in real life compared to the photos. we stayed in October when it was turning chilly but the log fire was a perfect addition to the heating.

house was maintained to a high standard, there was ample cooking basics and the beds were all comfy and smelt really nice. we were all really happy with the house and the location, which was only a short drive from shrewsbury.

overall really happy with our choice to stay here

Wonderful Ryton Grange.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ryton Grange for my sons wedding and had the most perfect stay. The house was full of family and and is the perfect setting for a big gathering. It is beautifully set out and has everything you could possibly ask for. Richard and Emma were amazing and so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them.

We would definitely return there if we are ever in Shropshire again.

Thank you so much Emma , Ryton Grange and the Garden Room are superb.

Caroline.

A lovely property, well looked after and obviously loved!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 12, cousins and partners gathering after many years to mark the advent of our elder members turning 60! As each of us arrived we were all struck by the simple beauty of the property and the peaceful feeling we immediately had. We all had our secret worries about "choosing" rooms or being left with the "dud", but should not have feared as they are all excellent and the beds extremely comfortable.

On Friday and Saturday night we did our best to shatter the peace, but it remained in place and as we spilled out into the beautiful garden we all regretted that we could not stay longer, but flights and businesses prevented any of us taking up Emma's lovely offer of a free Sunday night extension to our booking! On Sunday it was proposed that we have a BBQ brunch to use up the leftovers and we were impressed to find a BBQ ready to go with charcoal and lighting fluid, saving me a trip to the local garage!

All in all "Granny Mary's" was the perfect venue for our party and next year when two more of us reach 60 it's been voted that we return for a rematch! Can't recommend it highly enough!

Great house, nice feel and relaxed atmosphere to it.

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for our party, friends and family all commented on how amazing the house was. The pictures were accurate and the property just oozes rustic charm. There is a huge parking space and the games barn is a real bonus.
