The Eaton Manor team love to read the guest book comments; here are a sample of some recent entries.
February 2018 – Pheasant Walk
Excellent 3 night stay; beautiful surroundings, fantastically well-equipped cottage and now we have to go back to the Big City. We’ll just have to come back…
Christmas 2017 – The Manor House
Our 4th stay on the estate and second time at the Manor House for our 3 generation family get together. The house was beautifully decorated with a Christmas tree and garlands, warm and welcoming. We enjoyed the carol service on Christmas Eve and a walk to the Plough Inn for a drink on Boxing day. The games room is always a hit with the children and we all enjoyed a badminton ‘tournament’. Nice to see a smattering of snow on the hills as it was Christmas.
December 2017 – Woodpecker Way
An ideal location and cottage. Every amenity you could want wonderfully quiet and we were lucky with the weather so our two dogs could spend time in the enclosed area. We also loved the open playing fields near the office. We very much hope to visit again next year. Thanks to all.
November 2017 – 50th Birthday Celebration – Pendennis
Had a fabulous weekend celebrating my 50th birthday. Lots of lovely touches, comfy beds. Drop off supper great value and quality. Chef Jane and her team made us an amazing meal. Everything was beautifully presented. We will definitely be back. Thank you
September 2017 – Garden Cottage
Fabulous cottage, cosy and everything in it you could wish for. Great location, especially with a dog, it was lovely to be able to go for a walk without having to get in the car. Shropshire is a beautiful county, we enjoyed the Severn Valley Railway, a couple of walks in Carding Mill Valley, a drive across the Long Mynd, a wander around Ludlow, Clun and Church Stretton and Ironbridge.
September 2017 – Family Gathering – Toad Hall
Fabulous family gathering venue. From the first email of enquiry, to booking, through our visit and post visit, communication was excellent.
The venue and its facilities were excellent, including provision of extras for our four young grandchildren and three dogs. The site is well cared for and the pool and games room were thoroughly enjoyed by all and proved to be useful for entertainment. The on-line shopping helped tremendously in the preparations for our week away too. A truly superb venue for a big family gathering. We will be doing it again.
September 2017 – Curlew Cottage
A very comfortable and extremely well equipped cottage, in a beautiful location. The free wheelchair loan was invaluable and we had great times in the games room. The Station Inn and The Green Dragon were good for pub food. Accessible days out with a manual wheelchair included: Wroxeter Roman Site; Chirk Castle; Attingham Park Estate; Wenlock Priory; Acton Scott (Mobility Scooter Hire) and Carding Mill Valley (has an accessible tearoom and shop but the paths are not suitable for a manual wheelchair).
We had a brilliant stay for 3 generations and would enthusiastically recommend it as a holiday destination.
July 2017 – Great Western
Outstanding Stay. Everything about Great Western and Eaton Manor was excellent. We had no complaints at all. Highly recommend.
June 2017 – Pheasant Walk
We were lucky to stay in Pheasant Walk for three weeks. No matter which kind of weather, windy, rainy or sunny, we enjoyed every minute of our stay. For those who love walking, there are lovely walks around Pheasant Walk as well as in the surrounding area. You might be lucky in enjoying lovely views from the top of the Long Mynd, especially in late evenings. Bird watching can be done at Venus Pool (South East of Shrewsbury) but there is also a bird hide in the area of Wenlock Edge. In addition there are several buildings/estates run by the National Trust which are worth a visit.
Due to the well equipped kitchen we did a lot of cooking, but we would also recommend The Station Inn in Marshbrook.
Thank you to Nichola and all her team at Eaton Manor for this lovely home from home.
May 2017 – Hen Weekend – The Manor House
We’ve just returned from an amazing weekend at Eaton Manor and wanted to say thank you to you and your team for everything, from the welcome packs (loved the cakes!) to sorting out the banquet hall for the life drawing we really couldn’t have asked for more.
The Manor House is beautiful and so well equipped and the location is stunning. All the hens said how gorgeous and perfect it was for the hen weekend and my sister loved it.
I’m sure some of us will be visiting again! Thank you.
February 2017 – Woodpecker Way
Our first stay at Eaton Manor staying in Woodpecker Way. Eaton Manor came highly recommended by our daughter who had stayed in Garden Cottage. We have loved it here and found the staff and cottage first class. We brought our dog with us and there were so many extras for him.
A visit to Ludlow is recommended, lovely town and very historical. Also Church Stretton is worth a visit, great antique shop/market and lovely coffee shop.
The walks are great, but we had rain so didn’t go as far as we would have liked to.
We will definitely be back.
November 2016 – Toad Hall & Curlew Cottage
We would just like to say a big THANK YOU for a most wonderful stay. You could not have done any more. The accommodation in both Toad Hall and Curlew Cottage was far beyond our expectations and certainly matched any good first class hotel we have stayed in. The entire premises was so clean and well maintained and you had thought of everything.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our 40th Wedding Anniversary celebrations go so smoothly.
We will be back and will certainly recommend your fantastic establishment.
October 2016 – Curlew Curlew
We were a family of three generations and two dogs celebrating a 60th birthday and stayed for the weekend beginning 30th September 2016. A text was sent from the first to arrive to those still en route which said “beautiful” and this was no exaggeration. All periphery items e.g. kitchen towel, toilet rolls, soap, tea/coffee/sugar and even a selection of herbs and spices were there in sufficient quantities for our needs. The cottage was spotlessly clean and all towels, linen and kitchen utensils and equipment were first class.
The enclosed garden was wonderful for the children and dogs to play and the weather was so kind we were able to have Sunday Lunch outside. The games room and other facilities were wonderful and enjoyed by all.
The setting and views are breath taking as well as the walks. We even managed to attend the Harvest Festival in the little church down the lane which was rather beautiful. Two of our group did go to the Wellbeing Centre and of course the swimming pool was a hit with the children.
Cathy and I loved it so much we are checking availability to stay in Garden Cottage next year (we had a little peep through the windows).
Thank you all at Eaton Manor for a wonderful time.
July/August 2016 – The Manor House
We have all enjoyed our stay at Eaton Manor very much for our family summer holiday of 3 generations.
Excellent facilities – home from home.
We ate out at The Green Dragon and The White House and can highly recommend both.
We also has Milly (the chef) come to cater one night which was fantastic and definitely worth doing. We booked archery too and our coach Tom was excellent. The games room is brilliant and we all loved using it.
The guys in the office were extremely helpful and responsive when we needed them.
We hope to return one day.
July 2016 – Pendennis
On behalf of my family I want to thank you and staff for an absolutely fantastic stay at Eaton Manor. Our every need was catered for and all the lovely touches added. Thank you for the cake and wine that was left on arrival, it was a lovely surprise.
All the children loved Eaton Manor, the games room and swimming pool especially. The accommodation at Pendennis was perfect for us all. The garden was ideal for the children and our little dog. We’ve all had a truly wonderful and memorable holiday.
May 2016 – Garden Cottage
What a beautiful cottage and great facilities. We’ve had a really lovely holiday. The local walks are beautiful – thanks for the maps!
The warm welcome from everyone has been great and the personal touches, such as a welcoming cake, just add to the specialness.
Powis Castle was worthy of the journey into Wales, Shrewsbury is a beautiful town. Ludlow very quaint and Much Wenlock is just amazing; trapped in a time long ago.
The Bottle & Glass is an excellent place to eat and drink and The Green Dragon has rib-eye steak second to none!
Thank you for a brilliant holiday, we’ll be back!
Easter 2016 – Toad Hall
We spent the Easter Weekend 2016 here (4 nights, arriving Thursday late afternoon and leaving 2pm Easter Monday)
This was a family get together, with 5 adults and 4 children ages 7, 8 and 9 years.
The property was spacious and very well appointed with large private garden and patio area with outside furniture. It was ideal for a mix of ages – grandparents, parents and children and enough space not to be on top of each other.
We loved the fact that there were several walks directly from the property and others at a short distance away.
The children loved the games room (and the freedom to go along to it on their own!) and playing badminton in the high barn.
January 2016 – Birthday Celebration – Eaton Manor Country Estate
Eaton Manor is a fantastic venue. We used the Banqueting Room for a party for 50 people.
Everything was brilliant – from the day we booked the helpful staff couldn’t do enough, from sourcing caterers to a magician, to taking an itemised shopping list and putting every item in the place we needed it.
The accommodation is really lovely, all of our guests were really impressed, and it’s practical, so you don’t have to worry about damaging carpets/dirty shoes/a spillage – everything has been thought about.
We couldn’t have had a better weekend and wouldn’t have changed a thing!
