What a fabulous place, full of royal memorabilia and beautiful ornaments.. So interesting. Lots of lovely baths too!
The area is equally beautiful!
Lovely house but needs some updating in bathrooms.. Only one proper shower head amongst 6 adults isnt convenient and taking baths each morning before going out isnt realistic. It was the only downside to the property .
Dorrington Court is a beautiful home and and was a lovely retreat for our week's stay in the glorious county of Shropshire.. The home was luxuriously appointed, very warm and welcoming.

Every possible requirement was catered for, it was indeed home from home regarding facilities, everything provided was of the highest quality, especially china and glassware, there was absolutely nothing overlooked, we could wrote at length about the many delights of this home.
Dorrington is a quiet village but houses a very welcoming pub The Horseshoes, good meals and friendly hosts and the local shop is stocked with everything one could possible want from a village shop, both establishments only a few minutes walk away. Shropshire is a beautiful county and we enjoyed visiting Church Stretton, Ludlow and Cardingmill Valley.
Howard, the owner was a charming host and took time and trouble to meet and greet us. A wonderful holiday, this home is highly recommended and we certainly hope to return.
Howard is a lovely man and he went out of his way to make our holiday in his beautiful family home a memorable one..
