A Look Back In Time

Set within a private rural setting, beautiful gardens and impressive parkland, the five luxury cottages on the Peplow Hall estate are within walking distance to the Grade II* listed manor house, which was previously owned by Lord Newborough.

Following his decision to move permanently to Rhug, one of his Welsh estates, Lord Newborough sold the Peplow Hall manor house and accompanying grounds to new owners in 2017. To date, Peplow Hall the principal manor house remains privately owned family home.

The Story Behind Peplow Hall

The magnificent Peplow Hall estate was originally held by Ralph de Mortimer. He was, however, later forced to disgorge the Estate when he took part in a rebellion against William the Conqueror.

During the 13th century, the Peplow Hall estate was part of the Hodnet estate having been passed to the De Ludlow and Vernon families during the reign of Henry III. The Vernon family stayed there until 1715, when Sir Richard Vernon sold the Peplow Estate to Hugh Pigot of Cheshire for £5,000. The exquisite, Grade II* listed, Georgian house on the Peplow Hall Estate was built in 1725 by a later Hugh Pigot to replace an existing old manor house on the estate.

In 1873, the estate was sold to Francis Stanier, a wealthy industrialist, coal owner and ironmaster, who later created the present house by enlarging the original building. He also built the Epiphany Chapel adjacent to the manor house, to a design created by architect Richard Norman Shaw. In 1932, however, the house was substantially reduced in size.

Throughout 2020 and 2021, the five luxury cottages underwent an extensive refurbishment project to create the perfect rural retreat.
