Upton Cressett Hall

Built in 1580 as an entrance to the moated manor of Upton Cressett Hall, the turreted Gatehouse – with bedroom suites on two floors - has been featured on the cover of Country Life and was admired by Nicholas Pevsner. Upton Cressett was selected by Simon Jenkins in his acclaimed book ‘Best Houses of Britain’. There is a long-standing tradition that the young princes, sons of Edward IV, stayed at the early manor in 1483 on their fateful journey from Ludlow Castle (some 17 miles away) to the Tower of London; others who have stayed in the Gatehouse include Prince Rupert of the Rhine in the Civil War and English prime ministers.
