Have been going here for a few years now. Edward and Mary are really friendly and helpful. Whilst having breakfast Mary comes and chats, to see what you have planned, and always finds an easy way to get there. Very accommodating. Lovely quality rooms with shower and tea making facilities. I would definitely recommend this place.

We have visited Acton Scott working farm museum several times over the last few years. There is always something recto see at different times of the year.

We stayed here at the end of the Vintage Glider Rally at the Long Mynd in which I was taking part.

We were lucky to join a free guided tour that was led by a guy with knowledge experience and humour who loved the work he does Well explained as to the way the farm still works the old way What a change from the usual glitz and sound bites Thanks for a great day

I haven't stayed anywhere like this for about fifty years but perhaps for some this would be part of its charm. We booked it because it was four star and found it a little disappointing.

Our interest in this place was piqued by Ruth Goodman's shows. Coming here lived up to our expectations. It was beautiful, the animals were great, and the employees we encountered were gracious.

I stayed at the Acton Scott B&B due to the close proximity of Acton Scott Victorian Farm which is walking distance. The cottage is 1500 years old and furnished with 1950s furniture. A quaint cottage on a working farm. The stay was pleasant and you must be prepared for uneven floors and very dated furniture and decor. Breakfast was satisfactory... More

Completely recommend this delightful place set in the heart of the countryside. It's wonderfully silent at night, gorgeous views during the day, the rooms are very comfortable and the owners very polite and understanding, especially as we aren't early risers. Had a very relaxed weekend here and would love to come again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mr and Mrs Jones at Acton Scott farmhouse offer you a warm, friendly welcome for bed and breakfast on a working farm, covering approx 120 hectares. The 15th century traditional style farmhouse is of stone and inside original, exposed beams give it much character. Based in the small village of Acton Scott where the television series "Victorian Farm" and "Escape in Time" was filmed, just under a mile from the main road. This is the A49, from Shrewsbury to Hereford; yet it enjoys all the benefits of being in the heart of lovely, quiet country, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Acton Scott is an excellent place for exploring, cycling and walking - with footpaths leading out of the farmyard. To the North, three miles away is the Victorian spa town of Church Stretton and to the South is wooded Wenlock Edge at a similar distance. Sorry NO Dogs at present. Why not try the Acton Scott Farm Walk taking you through farmland with beautiful views of the South Shropshire countryside ... more   less
