Take a tour round Stokesay Court
Craven Arms, Shropshire
Stokesay Court was the setting for the mansions scenes in the film version of Ian McEwan's best selling novel, “Atonement”.
Still a lived-in family home, Stokesay Court is a magnificent late-Victorian mansion set within extensive grounds in the rolling South Shropshire countryside, with views across to Ludlow and the Clee Hills. A visit to the house will draw you into a world of both fictional drama and real history.
Behind the imposing Jacobean style façade with its Arts and Crafts detailing, lies a superb interior, notable for its English Oak woodwork that is at its most stunning in the central Great Hall. The success of ‘Atonement’ has contributed considerably to the revival of the house and many of the film’s artefacts remain on view in and around the house. Visitors can see the house and grounds on pre-arranged tours, which are often conducted by the owner.
