Things to do

School Farm Holidays is set on a small 60 acre farm in the centre of Sheinton, a small rural village in Shropshire. The name Sheinton comes from the Saxon “Shena-tun” meaning beautiful place.


Sheinton Church of St Peter and St Paul, opposite the farm, dates back to Norman times and boats a half timbered bell tower and entrance porch. It was partly re-built in 1660s and thoroughly restored in 1854.


With the farm set up above the hamlet be prepared for the far reaching 180 degree views and huge sky where with minimal light pollution you will never be far from amazing sun rises, sunsets and starry skies. Around 40 acres of the farm is used for sheep grazing. The remaining land includes a 4 acre orchard and 16 acre pasture with beautiful brook at the bottom, where guests are encouraged to roam and discover the huge array of bird, animal and insect life.


The land is not over grazed to allow the wildlife to flourish and the wild deer to graze freely. Make use of the deer hides to spot and photograph the wildlife as it appears. We have a small herd of pygmy goats who are great characters and enjoy talking to the guests more than doing their job keeping the brambles at bay. On rainy days feel free to use our communal games room to play table tennis, pool or just relax with like minded guests

School House Farm really is the best of all worlds – centrally located within the UK the site has for many years now provided a good meeting point for friends and family from all over the country to get together. Once arrived in this peaceful countryside location you can relax, wind down and soak up the silence. When you have had enough of that there is plenty on your doorstep to keep you and yours entertained for the rest of your holiday - Sheinton may seem a world away from the fast lane but you will find you have the best that Shropshire has to offer on your doorstep.


Much Wenlock has immense charm and character with many beautiful period buildings as well as shops, pubs and restaurants. Known as the birthplace of the modern day Olympics Wenlock was a proud mascot at London 2012 Olympics.
