The Heart of England/Peak District

Sambrook is a small rural village surrounded by farmland, it is on the border of Shropshire & Staffordshire making it an ideal place to stay & explore both counties.

Shropshire is famous for Ironbrige the world heritage site & Shrewsbury has an excellent range of interesting places and individual shops to explore both are aprox 15 miles from Sambrook.

Staffordshire has the history of the potteries with the wedgwood visitor center, Gladstone & Emma Bridgwater and the county town of stafford are aprox 15 -20 miles away.

Newport, Shropshire

Sambrook is inbetween the market towns of Newport & Market Drayton both of which have supermarkets, pubs, cafe's & individual shops. Local walks & cycle rides are on the door step, Golf, fishing and horse riding are all with in a few miles as well as many National trust properties & theme parks there is something for everyone near by. The cottage is self catering but if you fancy a night off then The Three Horseshoes in Sambrook is within walking distance and is known locally for it's excellent menu.

"Idyllic and practical"

My family - niece, nephew, sisters, husbands, my parents - stayed at Sambrook Manor Cottages in the run up to my wedding. The cottages themselves are brilliant and had everything we needed - from cots to dishwashers to plenty of space. The location is beautiful and nibbles the sheep provided much entertainment for the children. Sarah and family were both welcoming and non-intrusive at the same time. We would most definitely stay again if we were back in the area.

Thank you for your lovely review it was a pleasure to have you & all your family stay with us, I'm glad the cottage had everything you required for your stay including entertaining sheep! It would be great to see you again sometime.

"I want to live at the Sambrook Manor Cottages"

This was just an unbelievable experience. Beautiful place, beautiful weather and the most genuinely kind people we could have encountered. We were in town from the states for a wedding and this was our first time in Shropshire and I have to say, it was the highlight of our two week trip in the UK. Great location for day trips and an opportunity to see a nice slice of English life away from the big cities.

Thank you for your lovely review of Sambrook Manor cottages, I'm glad you enjoyed your first trip to Shropshire, it was great to meet you all and I would love to welcome you back again sometime.

"Five Star Self Catering Accommodation"

Our Group of 6 Adults and 2 Children (3 & 1) stayed for 3 nights at the Old Shippon to celebrate a 50th birthday.
The cottage is beautiful, layout is perfect, location outstanding and absolutely everything you need is catered for (even fresh-laid eggs!).
The weather was mixed during our stay, with the children really enjoying the outside space when sunny, but there was a Wii, DVDs and board games all to keep them entertained if it was wet too.
It was quite humid during our stay but I can imagine the under floor heating being very comforting during the winter.
Over-all I would highly recommend this accommodation and hope to be back at some point.

Thank you for your lovely review, it was a pleasure having you stay and we would love to welcome you all back anytime when hopefully the sun will be shining.
