"Warm and comfortably luxurious!"
Each year we go away with all my husband's family (11 of us) and this was voted the best place we've stayed. Magnificent kitchen table that could support various people doing jigsaws, cards, food & reading all at the same time. The house was lovely and warm despite bitter outside temperatures and we could bask in the small conservatory area when the sun shone. Kids enjoyed the (small) pool tho it was a bit chilly walking back down the lane afterwards. V helpful owner and a delicious sponge cake to greet us. Lovely walks on Wenlock Edge and v pretty church across the road. Altogether lovely!
We are delighted that you felt Eaton Manor was the best place you've stayed on your annual family breaks, thank you for your kind words. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back to Eaton Manor in the future.

"A great country getaway..."
The house was great, all very well presented and clean, all the kitchen equipment/linens etc were of a high standard. We were only eight people but the dinning room with massive table was a great feature, which would have comfortably fit a larger group.
The location was exactly what we were after - ie a nice country location & Ludlow is only a 30min drive away. And there's an amazing old church literally over the road.
The service was great - I booked it all online, the house was all ready when we arrived so no hassels and no need for me to contact the team that look after the house, so ideal. That said, some guests had queries which they called the team about who evidently were very helpful and friendly. The unpacking of the online grocery order was a great touch.
We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Eaton Manor and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you back in the future.

"A fabulous stay in wonderful house in a most beatiful spot in England"
This was my 3rd trip to Eaton Manor and my first stay in the Manor House itself. As always the service was excellent with the large dining table in the very useful for our large group. Great walking paths and views in the Shropsire Hills. Very rural setting with all the access you need to any "creature comforts" you may require.
Newly added conference center is a wonderful adaptive use of former farm building. Grounds are very well maintained.
I will be back in the course of the next year with friends from the US. Very well deserved ratings.
Great to welcome you back to Eaton Manor for a 3rd time and so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in The Manor House. Thank you for your very kind comments.
We look forward to welcoming you back again with your friends from the US.

"A very attractive house in lovely countryside, out of the way chill out."
Arranging our stay was easy and gave us plenty of confidence. On arrival the house was better than we expected. There were clear and helpful instructions. The rooms and furniture were very tidy and very comfortable. The gardens and surrounding countryside are stunning.

"Eaton Manor is a perfect retreat for all the family."
Eaton Manor what a great house! .I stayed with my family, my sister family and close friends total of 15 of us including toddlers and teenagers.The house was suitable for all ages. A very well equiped kitchen.Excellent bath and shower rooms good quality towels are provided, comfortable beds and nice bed lining.The sitting room was delightful with plenty of furniture.The housekeeping of the property was exceptional. Pretty garden which we felt was safe for children as the river had been fenced off. We stayed in winter months and the house was warm and cosy.
I would highly recommend Eaton Manor, it was better than my expectaions.

"Our third visit to an excepional venue for a very special family holiday"
Eaton Manor stands in the most stunning location on the edge of the Shropshire hills. It is far from the rat race and the most noticeable thing is the silence. The property is exceptionally well presented and so much thought has gone into the holiday experience which is second to none! Starting with the welcome cake and bottles of wine - even the kettle had just been boiled in preparation for our arrival. Our shopping had been unpacked, parcels delivered, cots and high chairs were much appreciated and even a walking stick was provided for one of our less mobile who had left their stick at home! The garden and swimming pool were so perfect for us all, a family of 14 aged from 3 months to 82 years, that we only ventured out a couple of times!
Was there anything we didn't like? Yes - going home!
