|There's always a warm welcome for you at Overton Grange Hotel, which is set in beautiful countryside just outside historic Ludlow, in the heart of south Shropshire. Relax in luxury and enjoy an unhurried way of life.
The hotel Restaurant is renowned for its excellent cuisine and has been awarded 3 AA rosettes. The views from most of our individually-styled en-suite bedrooms are simply stunning.
We have 14 individually styled bedrooms available for short or long term stay. Each bedroom has full en-suite facilities along with TV and tea making facilities. Where possible period-style furniture has been used to enhance each room, and the views from the majority of rooms are simply stunning.
Double bedded and twin bedded standard and superior rooms are available along with two suites which accommodate double and single beds. Some rooms will take an extra 'z' bed, or a travel cot but the Hotel does NOT provide cots, so please remember to bring your own. We do have a limited number of high chairs.
The hotel lounge bar is situated on the south-west side of the House enjoying both sunshine and fabulous views. The Shropshire countryside and the Clee Hills are dominated by the Brown or Titterstone Clee, and you may well see deer or buzzards from this glorious room, together with the stunning specimen trees which stock the two acre grounds. The lounge bar itself is well stocked and has an extensive selection of Malt Whiskeys in particular. In cooler times the log fires blaze and there is always an array of fresh flowers and rustic arrangements. A pre- or after-dinner drink, afternoon tea, morning coffee or just a place to write a letter... the lounge bar is a perfect place!
There has been a building on the site since 1066, as recorded in the Domesday Book. The house as we know it today was built in 1905 for the Betton-Foster Family.
It was assumed that Mr. Betton-Foster was associated with the Great Western Railway as locomotive 6879 was named "Overton Grange". This proved to be an incorrect theory. In the grand old days of steam a series of about 40 engines would be built and given names linking them to each other; they would all be named after a collection such as castles, or in this case Granges. The Overton Grange engine was in fact the last to be built in the "Grange" series. Pictures of the engine are displayed in the hotel Reception Area.
The family's two daughters are responsible for the ornate wood-carvings situated above the doors of the downstairs public rooms, and also on the fireplace.The Hotel also boasts two beautiful stained glass windows - in the porch and in the lounge bar.
