    Everything was clean tidy. Beds very comfortable . In a small village with good pub, restaurant, small shop and bus stop within 2 minute walk. Lots to do in area and great walks 10 minute drive away. Would recommend staying and would stay again if in area.

  • "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 .

    Thank you for your feedback. We take comments very seriously and since your stay we have upgraded all the shower facilities to a high standard. We do hope you choose to stay with us again soon and enjoy the new deluxe shower systems. Property Owner

  • "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. A book lovers paradise, with selections to suit all tastes. We felt so lucky to have discovered it on your web site and privileged to be able to rent it. 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.

The property

This Georgian style detached house is located in the centre of the charming village of Dorrington, Shropshire.

The house is built on the site of a much older property from where it gets its name.

Stepping over the threshold, you enter into a house which is furnished and decorated in an opulent, elegant style, reminiscent of past times with a décor that is unique and stylish.

The front door opens into a black and white tiled veranda, which is ideal for a spot of peaceful reading.

The hallway leads to an elegant dining room with crystal chandelier.

The spacious drawing room is furnished with beautiful works of art and interesting ornaments, as well as plush sofas and reproduction log burner powered by 3kw electric fan heater.

There is also a double bedroom and bathroom downstairs.

From the drawing room an unusual, ornate, sweeping staircase leads upstairs to two double bedrooms, one with en-suite, a single bedroom and a further bathroom.

All the rooms have sumptuous soft furnishings and ornate decoration.
