It's All About the Kids...

Posted & filed under News.

School holidays are guaranteed to be filled with fun when you stay at Eaton Manor.

We have loads to do on the estate without having to get in the car!

Days can be spent outdoors in the large private gardens of each of our holiday homes, playing games on the playing field or perhaps a spot of friendly rivalry on the croquet lawn.  Not to mention our 500-acre estate, around which we have plenty of private walks to enjoy. You can also enjoy a pony & trap ride or hire bikes during your stay to explore the surrounding countryside at your leisure.

However, if dark clouds are looming then fear not because we’ve plenty to do indoors too, including our fantastic games room, complete with numerous activities, and our covered and heated swimming pool and indoor badminton court. You could even try your hand at archery, with a ‘have-a-go’ session in our indoor range.

If you do fancy a trip out for the day, then the activities on your doorstep are endless, from mountain biking and hiking on the stunning nearby Longmynd to thrill seeking outdoor pursuits such as quad biking and high ropes, as well as horse riding and golf. If you’re after a more gentle pace, however, then very close by is the BBC’s Victorian Farm, Acton Scott, an historic working farm or, slightly further afield, you’ll find National Trust places to visit (which hold Easter Trails) at nearby National Trust sites, as well as Ironbridge, a World Heritage Site. The market towns of Ludlow and Shrewsbury are well worth a visit too.

Whatever you fancy and however young or old the kids are, we’re sure there’ll be plenty to entertain everyone at Eaton Manor and in the local area.

We also have a variety of Baby and Toddler items to ease the load when you’re packing the car. Items such as changing mats, potties, and nightlights can all be requested in advance and we’ll provide them free of charge for use during your stay.
