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.

    "A lovely place run by lovely people. The accommodation is all on one level above a tearoom, with just a hedge separating the canal that runs along side.The balcony gives lovely views across the fields and canal and there are so many different birds, including Tawny owls. A ten minute walk along the towpath under the little bridge will bring you to the Navigation pub, or walk another twenty five or so to the Queens Head (ten minutes by car). We ate three times at the Queens Head and the food was very excellent. They serve food 12pm-9pm pretty much every day, so ideal for families like us who aren't great at organising our day.The Navigation pub isn't open an often, but I popped in for a pint on a couple of evenings and found it a friendly place, with many people commenting on how good the food was. Oswestry is close by with about four supermarkets. The Morrisons also has a petrol station.S82994 is run by Iain and Fiona, who are both lovely and real grafters. The coffee, cake, scones etc. were all excellent and all the food was home made I believe.We were able to use one of their canoes for a day which was great fun.We had a great time and hope to be back."

    "S69717 forms part of the Upton Cressett Hall estate and therefore is an interesting location. It is reached at the end of a 2.5 mile country lane which can, at times, be a little muddy and wet but did not present a problem by car. As such there are no facilities or amenities within walking distance. However, Bridgnorth is about 10 minutes by car where all main shops and facilities can be found. In the other direction, you can reach Much Wenlock, a small village and then Ludlow is around 30 minutes drive away.Given S69717's location, it is very quiet and surrounded by lovely countryside.We stayed at the beginning of March and although there is central heating, it can become a little cool at times as the heating is set to be off between 4.30pm and 6.30pm just around the time you're coming back from a day out. There is, however, an electric fire in the lounge which helps."

    "We stayed at S89445 as a group of friends. This place is amazing. It was a privilege to stay in such an old building that had been so thoughtfully restored. The restoration is still ongoing in the grounds but its easy to see how beautiful these will be with time. The house itself is a few miles from shops and pubs but if you come prepared there is no real reason to leave! You might want to bring a board game or two though. The house itself had more than enough space for 14 adults. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing meals for everyone and all the bedrooms were large and had their own individuality. We would definitely return here, what a great experience."

    "A lovely home in peaceful surroundings. Very comfortable furnishings, especially the bed, although I could have done with a couple more saucepans - not that I did much cooking! The water seems very hard there and the kettle needs frequent descaling to prevent hot drinks tasting peculiar.Oswestry only five minutes away and other important towns all within an hour's drive. If you're interested in ancient castles and priories you could overdose. We certainly enjoyed all our visits. Beautiful countryside with lots of lovely doggie walkies (the old racecourse is fascinating and practically on the doorstep.)I would certainly recommend S98806 for a relaxing break."

    "Well presented and well equipped cottage in a stunning location with lots of wildlife such as sheep, phesants, rabbits and a good variety of birds. Very clean and tidy with plenty of space to cook and eat. Very comfortable with lovely furnishings and treats left for us. Lots of indoor and outdoor toys and games for the children. Child friendly environment with books and not cluttered so no worrying about whether the children will break something. Huge bathroom with bath and shower cubicle, very powerful shower. Friendly and chatty owners who made you feel welcome. Short drive to Oswestry. Peaceful and quiet."
