The Halfway House has supplied refreshments to hungry and thirsty walkers on the Wrekin for more than 150 years.

Now, the well-known home, along with its adjoining cafe, is up for sale for offers in the region of £650,000.

It is owned by Sean Saward who renovated the 304-year-old building in 2017, and would stop off at the house when he lived in Trench more than 40 years ago.

The historic property, which has been listed by Savills estate agents, started out as a hunting lodge and has far-reaching views and an acre of land.

Peter Daborne, director of Savills, said: "This is a unique opportunity to own one of Shropshire's best known landmark properties that could provide a wonderful business opportunity and home combined."

The cafe shut its kiosk on November 5 last year.

Jenny Joy, who ran the operation, said at the time that coronavirus restrictions meant closing was the sensible decision.
