Holiday Cottages in Shropshire

If you’re looking to get away from the crowds and leave the rat race behind, booking one of our Shropshire Cottages for your holiday is a great place to start. Shropshire is one of the least-populated parts of the UK, despite the fact that it covers almost 1500 square miles. Given that there are so few people living here, you can expect unspoilt, expansive scenery, with plenty of opportunity for walking and cycling. However, just because it’s one of the least-populated parts of the UK, that doesn’t mean that it’s lacking things to see or do.

Once upon a time, Shropshire was a military stronghold and fortified within an inch of its life, courtesy of William the Conqueror. There’s plenty of evidence of this in the form of Norman castles, which seem to pop up out of nowhere in some of the remotest places. Booking one of our Shropshire Cottages near Shrewsbury will give you access to one of the country’s finest-preserved towns complete with castle, sporting over 600 listed buildings, making it a genuine pleasure to explore.

What’s worth seeing in Shropshire?

Described by the author, PG Wodehouse, as “the nearest earthly place to paradise”, there’s little in Shropshire that isn’t worth seeing. If you’ve booked one of our family-sized holiday cottages in Shropshire, you can hunt out attractions such as the Ironbridge Gorge Museums and get a taste of what the region was like during the Industrial Revolution. Younger kids are bound to enjoy a trip to Telford’s Wonderland, a woodland attraction where actors, mazes, scenery and a little sprinkling of magic all combine to bring your little ones’ favourite fairy stories to life.

If you’ve got older kids in your party, then why not pay a visit to the Battlefield Falconry Centre, in Shrewsbury? While kids of all ages can watch the eagles, hawks and owls take part in exciting displays, only those aged 14 or over can actually book a session to handle and fly a selection of these feathered predators. Alternatively, the whole family can take a ride on a steam train, on the Severn Valley Railway. Covering 16 miles of glorious countryside, it’s a great way to appreciate the sheer size of the county.

Whatever you want from your break, booking one of our holiday cottages in Shropshire is the first step towards a memorable time away.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Shropshire To Rent.

Brian - verified booking

"This cottage has an extraordinarily remote location, accessed from any direction by over 4 miles of (very) single track roads. This is both the best and worst aspect of Bequila as a holiday base. The good part is that you feel as though you are in another world... an intensely rural setting of dark skies and the sounds of nature.. with a wonderful view from the lounge across rolling countryside dominated by the Clee hills. The Lawley, Cardoc and the Bowdlers are on the doorstep.The bad part is that every trip out by car begins and ends with 15-20 minutes of mildly stressful progress along those single track roads with passing places sometimes few and far between, never sure when you will meet another car or tractor. My phone's fitness app credited me with several daily "bike rides" - I at no point used a bike, but the phone assumed that as I was driving so slowly that I must be on a bike!But the roads and the other-worldly getaway are flip sides of the same coin. We loved it. The cottage itself was clean, comfortable and characterful. Even though it only accommodates four (1 double, 2 singles), it boasts a dining room in the style of a mini-baronial great hall which could easily accommodate a dinner party for 12!The only substantive negative for me personally (with a very bad back) was that the beds were a tad soft. Did not bother my companions, but resulted in me sleeping on the floor. There was space to do this in even the smallest bedrooms. The hot water supply is a tad tenuous: but all this means is that while you can have a good shower, run a bath and operate the dishwasher, you can only do one at a time. Again, this probably reflects the lovely off-grid nature of the location. Absolutely no problems with power, heat or internet. Recommended."

"One of the main reasons we booked this cottage was because of the "secure garden" for our dog, unfortunately within minutes of arriving our dog had easily escaped from the garden and was on the road that is directly outside the grounds, the allocated courtyard garden is not secure for dogs and it needs some work to make it so. The seats in the garden are low standard plastic chairs, of which two of the four were broken, as was the table. The cottage itself is very nice and has a bright and airy feel to it, everything you need for self catering is provided, however I do not think it is practical for more than two adults. The only seating in the living area is two sofa beds, these are very uncomfortable and they are not suitable for frequent use. Other reviewers have commented on the cattle grid outside the property disturbing their sleep and I have to agree with them, it is directly outside the bedroom window just above your head as you lay in bed and vehicles start rattling across it from around 5:30 a.m. The nice touches that we have become used to when we book a cottage holiday were missing, there was no welcome pack in fact there was no welcome, as the owners were busy getting ready to go away for the weekend, we were made to feel like bit parts.I'm sorry but I would not recommend this property."

"We really enjoyed our stay in this fantastic old property. The upper bedroom which has windows on all four sides was a joy. The children found it very exciting, especially the bath in the middle of the room, and we loved looking through the books. On the first floor there are the other bedroom and living room, which was well supplied with firewood, and in the evenings we were cosy in front of the fire. The other good thing was the two shower rooms located in one of the turrets. The underfloor heating was much appreciated, and it was fun being in the turret. We only used the actual dining room once, since it was inconvenient to run across to it in the cold weather, but it was a lovely room and we had the candles going to get the best atmosphere. The owner of the main house was very obliging and took us in to see the main hall - a fantastic old building. All in all it was a very enjoyable time and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet countryside setting."

N.R., London - verified booking

"This gorgeous farmhouse was the perfect hideaway for a weekend spent celebrating a birthday with family. We especially loved the welcoming kitchen with everything thought of right down to the plastic bowls for the little ones and the baby cham glasses for adults – perfect for our celebratory champagne! Sarah, the caretaker had left a lovely selection of jams along with local welsh cakes and fruit cakes – simply scrummy with a cuppa tea! If you can drag yourself away from the cosiness of the open log fire and comfy couches, or if you’re just a little desperate for some phone signal, then head to nearby Lake Vyrnwy which was very pretty. I would also recommend The Eagles Inn pub, a little further away but right next to Lake Bala, for a dog-friendly pub with the most welcoming and hospitable staff. Try the delicious locally bred homemade steak and ale pie but be aware – huge portions!"

Michelle - verified booking

"We loved the accommodation however there were several issues during our stay including a hob that didn’t fully work and want reported in the first day yet way never fixed or even commented on again, also when we did use it it tripped the electrics. Also the WiFi was continuesly dropping out and the hot tub controls were locked and took a day to unlock. Furthermore we were charged £25 for the use of the bbq which they advertise as providing with no mention of a charge. This said the accommodation was very nice and well presented although the kitchen was not well equipmented with utensils. We also found the owners very unwelcoming which was a shame as we were pleased with the house it was a shame that they small things ruined the stay."
