Standing alone in an area of outstanding natural beauty, overlooking the National Trust estate of Wallington, this charmingly restored 17th. century house, cottages and later farm buildings were once home to the family of Capability Brown.
Central for the coast, castles and the roman wall the entire farmstead has been recently converted with antique detail and fine touches everywhere.
The en-suite bedrooms open into a pretty courtyard with an ancient well and attractive raised patios. Each room takes its name from the wood used for their furniture and fittings.
All the rooms have their own entrances into the front courtyard, have fresh flowers for your arrival and TV with freeview, DVD, CD, radio and light refreshments. Guests also have the use of a comfortable lounge / library, and a fully licensed, yet secret residential bar.
Dinners at Shieldhall are sociable occasions. They are prepared from fresh seasonal and local produce and served at individual or collective tables. A single well balanced menu of four courses is provided and for this reason dinners must be ordered in advance.
You can walk out of the Shieldhall courtyard and around the 10 acres of grounds is a mown walk through woodland and natural meadow.
