Constructed in 1716 commissioned by Lady Katherine Herbert (daughter of the Earl of Bradford), Wealds Moor Park is arguably one of Shropshires most beautiful and prominent country houses.
Katherines Hall occupies the main spine of this most notable country house, with a prominent yet private position toward the back of the site.
With its elegant mullioned windows, decorative stonework, impressive pillars and balustraded roof line, Katherines Halls handsome stature is truly impressive.
The current owners, who have occupied Katherines Hall since the most recent conversion was undertaken in 2003, worked with the developers to sympathetically restore this Grade I Listed masterpiece, retaining manyof the important and striking original features, whilst introducing modern infrastructure including double glazed units and under floor heating in the drawing room, contemporary bathrooms and increased insulation. The schedule of works has culminated in creating a country house that offers the best of both worlds tradition and character with a comfortable and manageable living environment.
The superb central drawing room logically divides Katherines Hall into two living areas. Formerly named the great hall; this room would have once served as the social centrepiece for the house. This room gives a space quite like no other with beautiful paneling, stone fireplace at either end and fantastic oak doors leading out into the communal grounds. This room would lend itself to having a mezzanine floor, subject to the necessary permissions.
The reception hall gives a beautiful space to enter the house, with full height arched windows giving views over the communal grounds. The beautiful kitchen/breakfast room and adjacent sitting room are found within the east wing. Both of these rooms enjoy an abundance of natural light and far reaching views afforded by large sash windows.
Stairs rise from the main reception hall giving access to the master bedroom with en suite shower room. A second bedroom and family bathroom are found within this wing. Again, these rooms have enviable views over the gardens and countryside beyond.
Within the west wing are two further bedrooms of comparable size, one on the ground floor, and one on the first floor. Both of these bedrooms have en suite facilities.

Katherines Hall benefits from a blend of private gardens, grounds and terraces, coupled with beautiful communal gardens extending to approximately 2 acres. The house is orientated around the rear private grounds, which extend to approximately 0.6 acres. The current owners have created a number of intimate and stylish terraced and decked areas to the rear, enclosed by the original brick wall. Beyond this wall is the driveway and the majority of the garden which is predominantly laid to lawn. A double garage and productive kitchen garden can be found at the bottom of the garden.
Set in a peaceful rural position, Weald Moors Park is conveniently placed giving a wonderful country aspect, whilst allowing quick access to the road and rail networks.
The neighbouring village of Horton has a recently renovated public house whilst nearby Greenfields has a well reputed farm shop. Nearby Newport and the market town of Wellington exhibit a number of popular restaurants, bars and cafes. Schools in both the private and state sector can be found nearby, including Thomas Telford, Wrekin College, The Old Hall School, Harper Adams University, Adams Grammar and Newport Girls High. The larger centres of Stafford and Telford offer good rail links and the M54 provides easy access to Birmingham, Manchester and beyond. Wolverhampton, Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle and Shrewsbury, are all within commuting distance.
From Wellington, head north on Whitchurch drive (away from the Princess Royal hospital). At the roundabout, take the 3rd exit onto the A442, signed M54. After half a mile, take the left turn signed Preston and Kynnersley. Follow this road, and upon passing the 30mph signs on the outskirts of Preston Upon the Weald Moors, turn left immediately. Follow this private road, taking a sharp right turn keeping the wall on your right hand side. Katherines Hall will be found straight ahead of you.Read all
