Description

 

Parts of Old Downton are so ancient that history merges with legend: its 

renovation so sympathetic and creative that you may confuse fact with
fiction. A mixture of buildings – medieval, half timbered and Georgian
surround a herb and flower bedecked courtyard that looks out towards the
Hereford hills. This is pure escapism – a chance to immerse yourself in
history and enjoy an experience that will live long in the memory. The
sitting room is redolent of its previous incarnation – there is no hiding
the fact that this was once an impressive stable. Mighty timbers that once
fronted stalls now provide seating from which to watch the roaring log
burner, socialise and enjoy a drink from the bar – or in summer to
contemplate the spectacular sunsets over the Shropshire hills. The museum is
the most mysterious room of all – for a start no one knows the origins of
its name. Its huge cider press can still trundle powerfully around its stone
trough (with no drain to let the cider out!) and provides a dramatic focal
point to a room which is ideal for small conferences and receptions.

Bedrooms
It may be a cliché, but in the case of Old Downton Lodge we can rightly
claim that each of our bedrooms is unique. Fashioned out of ancient stables
and barns, you certainly won’t encounter uniformity here: A mixture of
exposed beams, high ceilings, alcoves, malt shoots and hidey holes have all
been incorporated in varying combinations in one room or another. Nor is
there anything uniform about the furnishings (apart from the fact that all
the beds are wonderfully comfortable). Antique dressers, modern solid oak
four posters and contemporary cool have all found their place. Stick with
your favourite, or let serendipity guide you to a totally different
experience on your next visit.
