It’s All Greek to me

The Temple

Shropshire

I love Greece, but the plumbing’s a bit temperamental, and I have never stayed in anything quiet as glamorous as this whilst I was there. Now you can stay in a classical temple set in a beautiful English landscape. This Greek-style folly was designed in 1783 and has been superbly redeveloped into self-catering accommodation.

 

Perched on a hill top in scenic Shropshire, The Temple has wonderful views from floor-length windows and a balcony, huge grandiose mirrors, high ceilings, elegant lampshades, and fine classical furniture throughout the sitting room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.

 

Take time to relax and gaze over the fertile green vista all you’ll hear are birds tweeting and a brook babbling. The nearby villages have picture-postcard thatched cottages, duck ponds and great pubs and the area has plenty of walks, caves and country estates to explore, and of course on your return the showers are guaranteed to work

The Temple is in Badger Dingle, Badger Wolverhampton, Bridgnorth, Shropshire, approximately 3 hours’ drive from central London. The nearest train station is Wolverhampton – approximately 1hr 50mins journey time from London.
