Profile Description

Located in the tiny hamlet of Eyton-on-Severn and approached via a short length of unmade estate road, The Summer House is a rare surviving example of an Elizabethan banqueting tower.

The building plan is of two conjoined octagons, the larger one providing the living space on two floors and the smaller housing the fine oak spiral staircase which ascends round its magnificent newel to a viewing platform.

The fully fitted kitchen/dining room is on the ground floor. On three sides of the room full-length arched windows, originally an open arcade, offer fine views and ready access to the garden and outdoor seating. In the neighbouring stair tower and beneath the stair is a small shower room. On the first floor is the bed/sitting room with a four-poster bed and a log burning stove in the fireplace. A further climb to the roof terrace enables guests to enjoy outstanding views of the Shropshire countryside, so famously immortalised in the poetry of A E Housman.
