Whist visiting Shropshire we found this little gem. Nothing sophisticated but an eye opener into historical farming and rural history. The wheelwright was very interesting as was the horse and binder harvesting the wheat. A little gem of a place if you like history.

I have wanted to visit Acton Scott since the Victorian Farm series was on television nearly 10 years ago. We finally managed it today and, despite the grey damp weather, we really enjoyed our visit. I was sad to learn of the demise of Clumper the Shire horse a couple of years ago as he featured in the original TV series. Nevertheless, the Shire horses were majestic and wonderful to see - especially Joe who stands 18.2hh! We also really enjoyed the wheelwright demonstration which really brought the craft back to life in the 21st century. We rounded off our visit with a hearty warming lunch in the cafe and can thoroughly recommend a visit to all countrymen.

Seen Acton Scott in many of the historical programs but was definitely drawn in by the wartime farm program . Decided that a visit was needed & away we went . Very welcoming staff & lovely entrance building soon had us wandering around inside . The old school is now a cafe serving hand made on the premises food of a very high quality . The originality of the farm is evident , with the bare minimum of the modern world interfering in it . A very relaxing & nostalgic day in many ways for us both , would love to return again , if just to feel like a child again and enjoy the experiences of being on a farm for the first time . The smells ( all good ! ) sounds & sights stirring memories of the past
