The Manor House: 17th C Manor Set in Pri­vate Walled Gardens

Eaton-under-Hey­wood, Shropshire 

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

A 5 Star Gold grad­ed prop­er­ty dat­ing from the 17th Cen­tu­ry, The Manor House is set with­in an acre of walled grounds at the heart of Eaton Manor Coun­try Estate, in 500 acres of peace­ful and very beau­ti­ful countryside. 

The Manor House can com­fort­ably accom­mo­date 14 peo­ple in 7 en-suite bed­rooms, has access to a cov­ered shared heat­ed pool (from April to Octo­ber) and enjoys com­mand­ing views over the South Shrop­shire hills and dales.

For that extra spe­cial break or cel­e­bra­tion we can help arrange addi­tion­al ser­vices such as a pri­vate chef to pre­pare and serve you din­ner, wine tast­ing, beau­ti­cians, a mag­ic show or even a pro­fes­sion­al photographer.

For larg­er groups, why not take advan­tage of The Manor House’s enor­mous oak din­ing table, which seats up to 18, and book both Gar­den Cot­tage and The Manor House to dine in style together.
