About YHA Wilderhope Manor

Bolt-ons available here

Grade 1 listed Elizabethan Manor

History lovers, school trips and walking groups are spoilt for choice with a stay at YHA Wilderhope Manor. Our Elizabethan manor is within reach of the Acton Scott Victorian Farm and the Ironbridge Gorge Museums – not to mention it’s an architectural marvel in itself. Despite our age, we offer great facilities like a dedicated meeting room (complete with a projector) and a fully licensed bar.

YHA Wilderhope Manor is super popular for weddings and functions, so treat your school residential or walking group to a bit of luxury. We’re experienced in providing group catering for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Great Hall, and there are breathtaking views right from our doorstep.

With the glorious Shropshire countryside just outside, it’s easy to immerse yourself in our area. Take a hike to the Cardingmill Valley – 5,000 acres of heather-covered hills and amazing wildlife – or try our fun on-site team building activities.
