“The Shippon was quiet, peaceful, spacious with a touch of luxury”
Reviewed November 2, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at The Shippon for the half term break. We had 2 families of 4 plus an additional relative. It is an ideal property for 2 families as there are 2 wings. All rooms are equally attractive and comfortable. We all loved the oak floors, doors and underfloor heating.
The mezzanine floor has a wonderful view and is a good area for additional sleeping space (with sofa bed).
The views of the sheep and cattle grazing was a treat. The visitor information was informative giving a couple of walks with instructions, straight from the cottage. There was a map and information about the Wrekin ( a hill / mountain in the locality), which we used and it was handy to have.
The children enjoyed the selections of books and games (including Wii) during the stay.
We enjoyed a meal at the pub in the village, The food was good and reasonably priced.
Trips out - we visited the Ironbridge Museums, with Blist Hill and the Jackfield Tile Museums being particularly good. Also The Monkey Forest at Trentham was well worth a visit. Ironbridge, Trentham and Shrewsbury are all approx 30 mins away by car.
Thank you to Sarah and family for providing such wonderful accomodation.

It was great to meet you all including the children in the cupboard which still makes me laugh! There is so much to do in the area & it looks like you managed to keep everyone entertained. I also enjoy the monkey park as it is great for all ages and Trenthan gardens & Harkstone Follies are also excellent for active children. Thank you for taking the time to write a review & we would love to see you all again.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

What a gorgeous home from home! Was extremely impressed with the communication from Sarah the owner from the moment we booked until we left. The location was ideal for exploring with the kiddies, travelling to places such as Drayton Manor/ Thomas Land, Alton Towers, Waterworld etc. Lovely walks (plus directions provided in info pack) surrounding the cottage. Idyllic outlook and perfect for a large family or group of friends. Would definitely visit again and would recommend staying here undoubtedly!

Travelled to Sambrook for a family wedding but our experience at Sambrook Manor Cottages certainly enhanced the time together as a family. Excellent accommodation, beautiful location, first class welcome and lovely friendly hosts who happily gave us guidance when we requested it, we most certainly will be back for no ore reason next time than we would love to spend more time there. I would most certainly recommend these outstanding cottages

“Fantastic base for a get together.”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Eight of us stayed at the Old Shippon for three nights at the end of June 2014. From the moment we walked in, we knew we had made an excellent choice for our holiday. Every room was immaculate, cosy and inviting. The views out across the fields are superb. The accommodation has everything you need and require for a fantastic break. You can tell that the owners have put lots of thought and effort into making the place as homely and comfortable as possible. Sambrook itself is an ideal location for exploring Shropshire, and indeed the local pub, The Three Horseshoes (which is just a short walk away) is great for meals if you want to eat out. Highly recommended - we are looking forward to staying there again next year.
