The location is just over a mile out of Bridgnorth in the beautiful scenic countryside of Shropshire. There is a hard standing drive up the middle of the site suitable for Motorhomes and the berths are on the regularly mowed grass on either side. Extra hard standing is available during wetter weather.
The Halfway House Inn is situated just over a mile from Bridgnorth town centre, on the B4363 to Cleobury Mortimer, which was the old main road between Worcester & Shrewsbury.
It is a 16th Century Inn, of some notoriety, mainly in relation to after hours drinking offences & the present proprietor is proud to be continuing the tradition, well into the early hours although restricted to residents & their bona fide guests. The Inn was first licensed in 1620 & was originally known as the Old Red Lion Inn. The name was changed to The Halfway House following a visit by Princess Victoria in 1823. Whilst on a stop to change horses en route from Pitchford Hall to Great Witley Court, she asked where she was. The reply was given 'halfway there'. Since this date the Inn has been known by its' present name. The oldest part of the building also boasts a wonderful example of an Elizabethan wall mural that has been preserved behind glass for all to see.
Peter Williams has owned The Halfway House since 1997 & is one of the UK's longest serving hoteliers, having held a licence continuously since July 1965. He, and his Swiss born wife Cecile are well known for both the quality & quantity of their home cooked, locally sourced food. There is a Full English breakfast to sustain the majority of appetites, a bar menu for weekend lunchtimes and an extensive a la carte Dinner menu.
Shropshire is often referred to as the 'Forgotten County', during your visit to the Halfway House you may wish to explore a piece of historic England. Few areas can match Shropshire's Severn Valley.
At it's heart, ancient Bridgnorth offers one of the finest settings in the country with it's numerous steps & alleys, a Victorian Cliff Railway, the leaning castle tower (perched at a dizzier angle than Pisa) & Britain's premier steam railway - the Severn Valley Railway.
