Acton Scott Historic Working Farm

Attractions

If you are looking for a fun day out for all of the family, this is definitely a place you need to come and visit. Immerse yourself in Victorian times and live an experience of a lifetime. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, this working farm is ideally located on an upland hill. Have you ever watched the BBC2 Victorian Farm series? This farm was featured on it! Expect the staff to be dressed up as if they were from the Vitorian times and take a fun educational tour around. With daily demonstrations, discover everything about the traditional skills and domestic crafts. Depending on the day you visit, you could be meeting the blacksmith, ferrier, or even the dairy maid, all absolutely fascinating characters.
The on-site Shire horses are stunning. You will also see rare breed pigs, sheep, cattle and even poultry. The events are fantastic and there are some great crafts courses for adults too. For children, there is a special educational programme made for schools. *

Review

In the Shropshire part of this book, we have featured a few different farm type attractions. The reason for this is simply because Shropshire is a very rural area and should be recognised for this, as farmers in this country are most certainly our unsung heroes. But each of the three farm attractions is very different from one another, and all have something unique to offer their many visitors each year. Here at Acton Scott for example, they show you the real workings of a farm from times gone by. I absolutely loved walking around Acton Scott, as I could truly feel the atmosphere of what it would have been like for those farmers working their land all those years ago. Along the way you will come across farmers and farm workers in traditional dress, and if you're as lucky as I was, you may get a tasty hot potato cake along the way! They have managed to save the village school and have turned it into a lovely tearoom, miss at your peril!
