Arriving at The Old Station B&B

There are off road parking spaces for approximately 10 cars in the driveway. There is a further area of off road parking land owned by us which is large enough to park larger vehicles such as horse boxes and minibuses.

In the grounds there is a large covered dog kennel with run attached. There are two patios complete with tables, chairs and umbrellas. On the one side of the property there are views across the cricket field and further fields to the village of Bomere Heath and on the other side there are views of the English countryside and the farms of Leaton village.

Entrance to the Property and into the Foyer

Whenever possible you will be greeted in the driveway and offered assistance with your luggage. The entrance is via a gently sloping wheelchair accessible ramp through a stained glass door into a large Foyer which contains a stained glass window depicting the property in 1985, little changed since 1847. This room makes is a good meeting point for groups such as family wedding guests attending weddings in Shrewsbury, The Albright Hussey Manor Hotel and Albrighton Hall to name a few, family parties, walkers and cyclists. In this room you will find various brochures for local places of interest around Shrewsbury and the rest of Shropshire. Opposite the entrance door in the Foyer is the main entrance into the house which leads you to the hallway, staircase and the other downstairs guest rooms, the Sitting Room and the Dining Room. Also leading off from the Foyer is the ground floor wheelchair accessible bedroom, the Clive of India.

Ground Floor Room

The Clive of India Suite is located on the ground floor meaning is wheelchair friendly. Leading off the bedroom is a large wetroom with shower.

Now return back to the foyer and through to the Sitting Room.

The Sitting Room

This comprises a large picture window with country views across to the village of Leaton and its famous Victorian gothic style church. In this room there is a 3-piece suite and coffee table, a 32" flat screen tv, a display cabinet containing memorabilia from the construction of the Channel Tunnel and various historic pictures and photos of interest relating to the house and its occupants. You pass through this room into the guest Dining Room.

The Dining Room

This is a spacious room with seating for up to 20 guests on 5 tables. Through two arches, formed by the removal of the original windows, you can stand on what used to be the platform but is now a part of one of the new extensions to the property. There are two large windows here with views across the fields to Leaton village.

Apart from the dining tables this room is furnished with an antique glass fronted bookcase containing various sets of glassware and china, an antique kidney shaped table holding your cereals selection, a large built-in bookcase and a separate book rack containing books of local interest, nature, cookery, history, novels etc. There is also a feature carved wooden mirror, a 1780 wooden safe door displaying its original 4-bolt lock mechanism, framed steam train pictures, a framed tapestry made by the owner and crystal chandeliers. When dining in here your tables are covered in embroidered cloths, you will eat from Minton bone china using Villeroy & Boch and Viners cutlery and drink your orange juice from crystal glasses. One of the dining tables doubles as a games table outside dining times. It has an inlaid draughts/chess board on one side and baize on the other for cards. Inside the top there is also a backgammon board. Other games and jigsaws are also provided for guests to use on occasional wet days.

Staircase

The staircase has solid mahogany balusters, newels and rails. One side has a hand painted frieze of steam trains exiting tunnels and as you ascend the stairs you will see two large feature stained glass windows. The first depicts the King George V steam train crossing a viaduct and the second depicts teal taking flight from a lake over bulrushes. At the half landing there is a large etched glass panel of a tiger and almost at the top you will see two framed coloured newspaper cuttings of the newly opened Shrewsbury to Birmingham line in 1849 and Queen Victoria's visit to Shrewsbury in 1850.

Arriving at the first floor you are presented with seven en-suite bedrooms of which five have been prepared for our guests, thus giving six guest bedrooms in total throughout the house on the two floors. (For people considering having a family party here we can sleep up to 17 adults in the 6 bedrooms at any one time and can cater for at least as many in the Dining Room.)

Off the main corridor is a secondary corridor which leads to two bedrooms.
