Magnificent Grade II* Elizabethan Manor House with fantastic countryside views towards the Malvern Hills and includes a 2 bedroom self contained apartment. Set in 23.38 acres with equestrian facilities.


Detton Hall stands in a magnificent, elevated position, surrounded by unspoilt rolling countryside and enjoying far reaching southerly views. Detton is a small rural hamlet within the parish of Neen Savage, noted for its strong local community based around its church and village hall events. There is excellent riding in the area with the Jack Mytton Bridleway passing close to the property and easy access to Clee Hill.

The attractive market town of Cleobury Mortimer with its local amenities including a wide range of shops is within 3 miles. The Hall is located almost midway between Ludlow (12 miles), Bridgnorth (12 miles) and Kidderminster (12 miles), while Worcester (22 miles), Telford (23 miles) and Birmingham (32 miles) are all easily accessible.

There are good local schools in both the private and state system.


Detton Hall is a Grade II* Elizabethan manor house which is listed in England's 1000 best houses by Simon Jenkins who describes it as "A house of surprise and pleasure". A Hall is thought to have stood on the site since the Domesday book when the area was known as Dodintone, and was under the ownership of the Detton family. The present structure is thought to date from 1575 and is believed to have changed hands only seven times in its history.

Detton Hall, the manor house to a small community that once had its own chapel, is an excellent example of a deserted medieval settlement. Today all that is left of the settlement is a series of shallow earthworks and hollow ways where there were once roads.

The Western Wing formed part of the original manor house with two substantial fireplaces and extensive oak panelling. The oak staircase was added around 1600 with a massive plain strapwork balustrade and cut out panels to the first and second floors: a feature particularly noted by Nikolaus Pevsner in his Architectural Guide of Shropshire. A further extension was added during the early 17th century and with the exception of a single story extension to the North side and an Oak framed Garden Room, the Hall stands as it has since the late 17th century.

Every room and every facet of the Hall has been completely overhauled and empathetically modernised and updated and now provides a wonderful balance of the old ethos of the house with high quality modern day living. The current owners have also installed equestrian facilities, including fine stabling and a manège.


Detton Hall is approached up a long driveway from where its beautiful, half timbered and stone, three storey facade
can be appreciated. Combining stunning architecture with comfortable family living and fabulous, far reaching views over the countryside towards the Malvern Hills, Detton Hall is a truly unique property.

The Hall is surprisingly light and sunny due to its large, south facing windows. There is a wealth of original features throughout the property including panelled rooms, high ceilings, oak beams and studwork, mullioned windows and impressive stone inglenook fireplaces in both the drawing room and the sitting room.

The current owners have continued an extensive restoration project which was started by the previous owners: roofs have been stripped, re-lathed, repaired, felted and retiled; chimneys have been rebuilt from the roof level upwards; the property has been re-plumbed, re-wired and has had central heating installed.

An oak framed, garden room has been the most recent addition which complements the Hall and provides a superb space for informal entertaining/dining and enjoys fantastic views over the gardens and countryside beyond. It has under floor heating and links to the bespoke kitchen which is the heart of the home and features exposed stone walls and an AGA housed within an inglenook. A wide selection of oak units provide useful storage and together with a central island are all topped with granite worktops. Leading off the kitchen is a large utility room to one side and on another a cloak room and boot room. There are two cellars, situated off the hallway under the sitting room/dining room: one of which has been dry lined to provide an additional storage area. A study just off the drawing room completes the ground floor accommodation.

There are five bedrooms located over the first and second floors with the master enjoying a particularly luxurious bathroom. Within the Hall is The Granary, self contained accommodation ideal for anyone looking for multi generational living. There is separate access from outside into a first floor dining kitchen with a sitting room leading off and a bathroom just off that.

On the third floor there are two bedrooms, both with en suite showers. The water and electric are separate for the Granary, as is the heating, however, it can also be included with the main house if required.


Detton Hall is surrounded by extensive gardens to all sides. To the South is a sweeping lawn to a ha ha, with a picturesque lake just beyond. An attractive pool house sits to the side and provides a perfect space to enjoy the peaceful setting and magnificent unspoilt views to the Malvern Hills. To the West of the Hall is a delightful Victorian walled garden with fruit trees, clematis and honeysuckle covering trellis and a vegetable garden. A mature purple Wisteria covers this side of the Hall.

The current owners currently arrange bespoke wedding/events at Detton Hall utilising the beautiful, unique setting.

The Granary has its own separate wooden garage, parking area and dog kennels to the side of Detton Hall.

Across the main drive is a double garage with roller shutter doors and the old tractor shed has been converted into a workshop and stabling with four monarch boxes housed within, together with a wonderful tack room which has an upstairs storage area and hot/cold water. To the rear of the stables is a hard standing area, perfect for Haylage storage. A 20m x 60m gell track arena and a four bay general purpose agricultural building sit within the grounds which extend to approximately 23.38 acres. All the paddocks are post and rail fenced and mains water is available to all the fields.
