Eaton-under-Hey­wood, Shropshire 

Curlew Cot­tage is part of Eaton Manor Coun­try Estate, an award win­ning rur­al retreat in South Shropshire.

Sit­u­at­ed on Eaton Manor Coun­try Estate, Curlew Cot­tage is a 4 Star Gold spec­tac­u­lar­ly ren­o­vat­ed prop­er­ty set in its own pri­vate grounds, with a large gar­den and lawns run­ning down towards Eaton Brook (this is fenced off for safety).

The cot­tage is sin­gle storey and com­fort­ably accom­mo­dates 8 peo­ple in 4 en-suite bed­rooms. It has been assessed by the Nation­al Acces­si­ble Scheme as Mobil­i­ty 1, there­fore is suit­able for guests with reduced mobility.
