Part of Shropshire’s History
First recorded in the Domesday Book as “Elbretone”, today The Albright Hussey retains all the charm and character of its history. In 1292, to avoid confusion with other place names similar to “Albrighton” the name “Hussey” was added after the family who occupied it. The Hussey family remained here until the 17th Century, and the estate passed to the Corbets in 1634. During this period Albright Hussey experienced a rich history.
The Battle Of Shrewsbury was fought on nearby fields in 1403 and Royalist troops used it as a garrison in 1741.
The present house, dating back to Tudor times, mirrors a wealth of history. Rebuilt in 1524, the timber framed section is the earliest part, the brick and stone wing being added by 1560. Inside you will find a wealth of oak panelling, huge open fireplaces and original moulded beams create a comfortable and welcoming ambience.
The present owners, Mr and Mrs Franco Subbiani, purchased the Albright Hussey Manor in March 1988 with their son Paul. They have personally supervised the restoration programme paying meticulous attention to every detail of this Historic House, making it one of the finest hotels in the area. Mr Franco Subbiani, originally from Florence, has an international reputation as an Hotelier and with Paul taking the role of General Manager, guests are certainly offered the ‘Personal’ Touch.
