Holiday Cottages In Shropshire To Rent

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.

John - verified booking

"This cottage is set in a stunning location and is very convenient for the Severn Valley Railway. You can watch the trains passing on the bridge. At least you could if you could open the blinds. It is generally clean and cosy and the bread and milk awaiting us was a nice touch. However, there are a few problems with it that would make us not want to stay there again. The twin bedroom is far apart from the double in terms of comfort and convenience. Only one pillow on each bed, no towels (we had to search for some), but the worst thing was the terrible smell in the shower room. We had to keep the skylight open all the time we were there and the smell persisted until the day before we left. The shower screen does not fit well and all the drawers stick and are difficult to open and close. The other bedroom is fine, except that it is not possible to stand up in the bath, due to the low ceiling, unless you are very short, making it difficult to get in and out. Downstairs is much nicer though it is difficult to keep the fridge door closed. Overall, this cottage could be lovely but it needs quite a lot of attention. To sum up, we would say it would be fine for a couple, as long as neither are too tall but is not suitable for four adults, unless the problems with the twin room are sorted out and more care taken with its preparation."

Mr non-firestarter - verified booking

"A lovely cottage, with a well equipped kitchen and lounge and two bedrooms. It is well away from the main farmhouse, and it is hard to spot any other civilisation even with its sweeping views of the countryside.It is an eco cottage with no mains electricity - it is instead supplied from a wind turbine and has batteries as a backup, as well as a petrol generator for windless days. It doesn't have any high consumption items, even the kettle is heated on the gas hob. The heating is from a woodburning stove which was lit when i arrived. It burns logs fast, they need replacing every 30 mins or so, but there is a large store outside, though these are exposed and some were wet or damp. It was really hard to light the fire when it went out - it took a lot of time feeding it with newspaper and twigs and I think the logs were damp which didn't help - a lesson on how to do it better would have been helpful. The instructions on how to use the three levers and knob on the fire differed between a) what the owner said, b) what the instructions in the manual said, and c) what other guest comments said... Some consistency would be very helpful. It is the only source of heat and as it goes out an hour after being fed, it could get very cold indoors at night if the weather was cold."

Tracy - verified booking

"The house was exactly like the photos showed and what we wanted. Sally was helpful in letting us have the keys earlier than 4pm and very knowledgeable about the area. Also showing how to get the best from the house, washing machine, heating etc.The reasons I marked the house down slightly is due to the noise of cars coming in to the main bedroom window, double glazing would help this. The road appeared busy for workers getting to work early in the mornings, busier than we were expecting.Previous tenants had not cleaned one of the pans in the oven so when we heated the oven up, this set off the smoke alarm, so can guarantee that was working.The second bedroom did not have much storage area.There were nice little touches like flowers and a pint of milk left which we appreciated.Across the bridge, 2mins away was the Woodbridge Inn who were helpful, dog friendly and served great food.Ironbridge was 2.5 miles walk away following the river and taking this route also lead you to the Tile museum (worth a visit). it was approximately 5 mins to drive so great to get to all the local attractions.This is the first time I have used this site but will do so again as found it easy to book and get what you expected."

Steve - verified booking

"Burrill’s View was without doubt an absolute gem of a discovery and the best holiday cottage we have stayed in. The vast area of land for the kids to play in and explore was excellent, and the hot tub and decking was the most used area all week!The welcome pack of (all homemade) bread, jam and blackberry vodka plus butter and milk and the offer of logs for the burners in case we needed it was a really thoughtful and appreciated touch from Nigel & Maz who were the perfect hosts.The accommodation was spacious for 2 adults and 4 children and everything you needed was available inside.Nigel also offers rifle shooting on the land adjacent to the property for a very reasonable hourly price which the 4 kids absolutely loved and for anyone visiting we would strongly recommend taking him up on his offer. All in all a thoroughly 10/10 place to stay!"

Alan - verified booking

"We had a family gathering (8 adults, 6 children and 2 dogs) to celebrate a 70th birthday. We loved the spaciousness of the property - the beds were comfortable and it was spotlessly clean.Being a historic listed building, there was not the level of "luxury" one might get in other places, but perfectly adequate. The older children used the internet service extensively, though this was subject to speed restrictions, which caused some frustration.The outdoor table-tennis was a surprise - and we had the beautiful weather to use it.We were pleased that our visit coincided with one of the 6 days a year when the NT part of the house was open to the public - a real bonus.The road access had rather a lot of potholes, but this is not unexpected in a farm track."
