Stokesay Court & Gardens

Attraction

Stokesay Court & Gardens

Stokesay Court offers a wonderful opportunity to view an intact late Victorian interior in a still very much lived-in private home. It is one of the earliest houses in England built with integral electric light, became a military hospital for wounded soldiers during WWI but then disappeared into obscurity after WWII. A time capsule emerged following the death of Lady Magnus-Allcroft in 1992, but the contents were sold at auction. Her niece took over and has rescued, restored, and refurnished it. Stokesay shot to fame following the filming of “Atonement” in the summer of 2006.

The house offers breathtaking views of the Clee Hills, and a stunning English oak interior. In addition to our popular tours, it provides a wonderful setting for private parties, corporate events and concerts. The large level lawn offers an excellent site for a marquee.

Tours of the house available April - October. Dates and booking details published on the website. PRE-BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL.

Author's Review

Our country has more hidden gems than Queen Elizabeth has in any of her fine jewellery collection, none more so than in Shropshire. After extensive research we have uncovered yet another great place for you to visit, that is Stokesay Court & Gardens. Built in 1892 Stokesay was at the height of the Victorian era, the place people wanted to be invited to. Hence why we felt we must have this great house in our book. Even today, Caroline Magnus, Stokesay's present owner is inviting people to join her on her very popular tour of the house. Also on the tour, you will get to view many of the film sets from the film Atonement, starring Keira Knightly, which was filmed here during the summer of 2006. That's not all, after your tour has finished, you get to have tea and a great selection of home baked cakes. As you walk around this great house, it's like being part of your own period drama.
