Large Holiday Accommodation:
Eaton Manor - Eaton-Under-Heywood, Shropshire.
Superbly restored and lavishly decorated with convenience and comfort in mind, the 17th-century Manor House is at the heart of the Eaton Manor Estate in nearly an acre of private, gently rolling gardens, ideal for a game of cricket or an afternoon drink on the lawn. The Eaton Brook flows at the bottom of the well appointed garden, making it a charming spot for wildlife watching or perhaps fishing from the stepping stones during the summer months. This large house itself is no less charming than the grounds, combining a wealth of interesting historic features such as timber framed walls, leaded windows plus original flagstones with modern luxuries such as a sauna plus a well-equipped kitchen for adventurous cooks. The brook is now fenced to keep our youngest guests safe.
The Manor House Accommodation
The Manor House offers five main bedrooms plus the snug, each individually decorated to preserve the warmth and character of the rooms. Downstairs is the Master Bedroom, newly decorated with a stunning six foot double bed plus en-suite bathroom; as well as the Garden Room with twin/double bed and spectacular French windows with glorious views down to the brook.
Upstairs is the Terracotta Room, featuring exposed ceiling beams, original leaded windows and a grand Queen Anne-style mahogany four poster bed for added luxury. The newly refurbished Blue Room offers three single beds or a double plus a single with dramatic views to the Wenlock Edge, while the Green Room offers rustic exposed wall and ceiling beams, a twin/double bed plus beautiful views to the garden.

The rest of this large house is well-appointed with ample room for guests to spread out. The entrance is via the south-west facing conservatory with views of the Wenlock Edge, which leads to the tiled hall and then the dining room featuring an oil-fired Aga and a large oak table seating eighteen - ideal for meals with the whole family.
The new kitchen complete with granite worktops has everything you need to cook up a feast, including a dishwasher, larder fridge, freezer, microwave oven, range cooker with two ovens plus a washer dryer. A stone staircase from the dining room leads down to the salt cellar, the ideal place for muddy boots with access out to the garden.
