Brookside is a handsome country house with 17th century origins located in the Shropshire Hills near the Welsh border. The house has evolved over the years with principally Victorian additions, creating a spacious and adaptable property.
The reception hall is an impressive space, and the dining hall has a staircase leading up to a galleried landing above. The principal reception rooms all have high moulded ceilings, open fireplaces and are lit by deep sash windows while the kitchen is located in the original part of the house and has a polished oak floor, exposed beams and a Rayburn. This floor also benefits from a separate one bedroom annexe and a large conservatory.
Upstairs the main bedrooms lead off galleried landings and each is individual in style. The master suite has a triple aspect and excellent views across the valley as well as a steam room, dressing room and a door to the roof terrace. There are a further seven bedrooms and six bathrooms.

Brookside stands in an elevated position above the beautiful Glyn Ceiriog Valley with a fantastic view over to Chirk Castle.
