Food & Drink
Shropshire is a wonderful county located on the border with Mid & North Wales. It is overflowing with unspoilt, breath-taking countryside and beautiful historic towns, and Eaton Manor Country Estate is a great base from which to explore this fabulous county.
The South Shropshire Hills, in which Eaton Manor is based, is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, along the historic Welsh border and Eaton Manor is also on the renowned ‘Jack Mytton Way’, which is popular with walkers and horse-riders alike.
Due to the rural location a car is strongly advised as the nearest shops are in Church Stretton, 4 miles away.
Whether you have a young family or a family with older kids to entertain, there is plenty to do on our 500-acre countryside estate without the need to get in the car at all during your stay.
We have taken care to develop our on-site facilities with families in mind and, given the unpredictability of the British weather, we provide both indoor and outdoor activities so, come rain or shine, you can be sure there will be something to keep the kids entertain.
Should you wish to venture off the estate there are plenty of great places to visit locally for some family fun as well.
If you’re planning a large gathering for a special event you can enjoy exclusivity of the estate by booking all our cottages and make use of our large stylish banqueting room which can accommodate everyone on the estate for a dinner.
Alternatively, you can book one or any combination of our cottages and celebrate in comfort and style with one of our talented local chefs to prepare and service a special meal for all your friends and family.
We often accommodate up to four generations in one cottage and therefore realise the importance of making our cottages as accessible as possible to all guests.
Three of our cottages have been assessed by the National Accessible Scheme as follows:
- Pendennis (sleeping 10 in 6 bedrooms) is NAS Mobility 1 & 2, therefore suitable for part-time wheelchair users and guests with reduced mobility.
- Toad Hall (sleeping 14 in 6 bedrooms) is NAS Mobility 1, therefore suitable for guests with reduced mobility.
- Curlew Cottage (sleeping 8 in 4 bedrooms) is NAS Mobility 1, therefore suitable for guests with reduced mobility.
Accessibility guides for each cottage are available on request and we can provide complimentary use of several mobility items to help during your stay.
For guests travelling with young children, we offer complimentary use of baby/toddler items so you don’t need to bring everything with you. The gardens/patios with each cottage are enclosed and safe for children (except for Great Western which has an unenclosed garden).
We can also provide floor plans and offer advice to assist you in planning your stay.
Eaton Manor Archery, set in the stunning South Shropshire countryside, benefits from both a 70 metre (Olympic-sized) indoor range, and a 20 metre indoor range, used by both GB Olympic and Commonwealth Squads for training.
Whether you are looking to have-a-go at archery training during your stay at Eaton Manor, or you’re after indoor ranges for professional archery training breaks, we have something to suit.
Whether you’re staying for a short break or a longer holiday, two or you or a whole gang of you, Eaton Manor is the perfect venue. You’ll have a unique opportunity to spend together as a family, away from the demands of daily life.

Eaton Manor is a paradise for dogs, and they are very welcome in all our cottages, except Great which is dedicated dog free, so you can enjoy a dog friendly holiday with spectacular Shropshire countryside walks on your doorstep.
We want Eaton Manor to be a ‘home from home’ for dogs as well as their owners, so on arrival you will find a variety of items for your four-legged friends, including an ID tag for their collar during your stay, a blanket and bowl per dog, individual dog towels and a jar of treats, as well as maps in each cottage with wonderful walks and lovely warm dog washing facilities.
“What a wonderful part of the country! We came as three generations and without exception, we all had a fantastic time. We were able to play games in the picturesque garden (weather permitting), enjoyed the games room and had a daily swim and all three children were able to swim without aids by the time we left. The scenery was amazing and I have never seen so many butterflies! … We enjoyed some of the local facilities including the farm shop at Ludlow and two local pubs – both with gardens… Many thanks to you all.”
