The Location of The Hundred House Hotel
The Hundred House Hotel, one of the finest hotels in Shropshire, is situated in rolling countryside close to the Severn Valley and within easy travelling distance of Ironbridge, Bridgnorth and Telford. The area offers many varied attractions for the visitor.
Close by is Ironbridge, the Silicon Valley of the Industrial Revolution. In company with the Grand Canyon and the Taj Mahal, the Ironbridge Gorge is a World Heritage Site. Here a collection often distinctly different museums show how this area lit the fuse to the Industrial Revolution. The iron bridge was built by Abraham Darby in 1779.
The old town of Bridgnorth lies perched on a hill-top above the River Severn and has superb views of the river valley. Twisting medieval streets lead down to the river or take the country's oldest and steepest inland cliff railway, an 111 foot climb at a gradient of 1 : 1.8. Bridgnorth is home to the Severn Valley Railway: One of the country's most attractive steam journeys travelling through 16 miles of glorious countryside with superb views of the river en-route.
Other local attractions include the the RAF Museum at Cosford. the remains of Wroxeter (or ‘Viroconium’ ) the fourth largest city in Roman Britain, Medieval Castles like Ludlow and Stokesay, Ancient Churches and much more.
There’s the old market town of Much Wenlock and the dramatic remains of Wenlock Priory on the site of St. Milburga's Abbey which dates back to around AD 680. Nearby there is the dramatic Wenlock Edge and just a little further afield and there are the magnificent Welsh Marches, Offas Dyke, Oswestry Hill Fort and the beautiful Long Mynd and Carding Mill Valley.
Escape at The Hundred House starts with an initial tipple in the welcoming bar. Your hosts 'The Phillips Family' have, for approaching a quarter of a century, created a marriage of hospitality, eccentricity, warmth and, on occasion, wit.
If this supreme example of a hostelry drives you to distraction, or the pungent atmosphere of local charm suffocates, then simply step outside and indulge in the Salopian countryside.
If the fusion of rustic and progressive cuisine is too good to be true, then escape to the garden of many secrets. On the other hand, if it tips it down, you could always retire to the swing infested bedrooms.
