Hotels near  Boscobel House and the Royal Oak - Shropshire

Boscobel House was built around 1632, when John Gifford of Whiteladies converted a timber-framed farmhouse into a hunting lodge. The Gifford family were Catholics, at a time when the religion was outlawed. Tradition holds that the true purpose of Boscobel was to serve as a secret place for the shelter of Catholics in time of need.The house was, however, destined for greater importance. Following the execution of King Charles I in 1649, his eldest son made a brave attempt to regain the throne, but his hopes were crushed at Worcester in the final conflict of the Civil War. Young Charles was forced to flee for his life. Initially, the future King Charles II set out to cross the River Severn into Wales, but found his way blocked by Cromwell’s patrols.
