About this property

  • History
    Bishton Manor acquired its present name during the early 20th Century, prior to which it was known as Bishton Hall. The earliest known occupier of Bishton was Henry de Bispeston recorded in 1221.

    During 1327, prosperous inhabitants of Albrighton were taxed for the value of their movable assets. It was John Bishton, of Bishton, Albrighton who was instrumental in passing Bishton Manor to the Harrington family who were to live there for over 300 years. It is believed the family made additions to the house in the mid-to-late 16th century which remain today.

    In 1910, the farm buildings included a cartshed, naphouse, stables for nine horses, piggeries, a cow house for 32 cattle, two calf cots, covered yards, granary, chaffhouse, mixing room, dutch barn and drift way.

    During the Second World War the property was used as a base for British and American service men where it is said that 11 officers lived in the house and over 100 soldiers lived in the service wing.

    In 1953 Lord Dartmouth gave Bishton Manor to his daughter, Lady Diana Legg who lived there with her second husband, Brigadier Adrian Matthews until it was bought by the current owners in 1971.

    ‘A History of Bishton Manor' is available by special request from the agent.

    Bishton Manor is approached via a private gravel drive way which sweeps through parkland to reveal the charming façade, with roses climbing up the south face.

    The house is laid out over two floors. The front door opens into the central hallway which extends the depth of the house and from which the main staircase rises to the first floor. To the right of the hall is the drawing room which boasts oak flooring, a double aspect with shutters and an open fireplace. This leads directly to the games room, which has a double aspect with a bay window overlooking the front gardens with a seat and shutters, a glass fronted door into the garden, bookshelves and built in cupboards and a clearview log burner. A separate door leads to a back corridor with a storage room off and continues to the main hallway.

    The dining room is to the left of the central hall and features a bay window, exposed beams and an interesting lead feature window with oak surround. There is also a second door which leads into the kitchen. The sitting room is off the kitchen and has exposed beams, a double aspect with wonderful views of the colourful garden. French doors open out into the garden and there is a large inglenook fire place with a wood burner.

    An oak archway opens into the kitchen, which has tiled flooring, exposed beams and a four door AGA. There is a large utility off with a range of units with a sink and a further boot room with solid work tops, a sink and a door leading out to the kitchen garden. There is also a pantry and separate larder off the utility and a back door with a porch area which leads out to the front of the house.

    The principal staircase sweeps to the first floor off which the seven bedrooms flow, four benefit from a wash basin. There are two family bathrooms, the first with a bath and bidet and second with bath and separate shower. There are a number of cupboards including a blanket cupboard and airing cupboard. The house also has a secondary staircase.

    Barn and Buildings
    The sandstone building adjacent to the house was the old service wing. The building is three storey with attic rooms and, subject to the necessary planning, could be used for a multitude of uses. The ground floor has a domestic floor and part is currently used as a log shed. The first floor is an open space with windows on each wall face.

    Outside is a grass covered courtyard which leads to the kitchen garden, off which is another brick building.
