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.

    "In our opinion this cottage, while having some attractive features and a historic location, does not merit the four stars - nor the term "luxury" holiday accommodation on the owners' calling card. We were greeted by an unpleasant smell on arrival which stayed the whole time. A smell was noted by a guest in the visitors book two months ago, so it's odd that it has not been dealt with. We couldn't work out the source - drains perhaps. The front door, which opens into the living room, had a broken letter box and was very draughty on cold windy days - despite the good central heating system. The mats shown in the photo of the main bedroom weren't there when we visited. Instead there were small narrow strips of carpeting - not very cosy in winter. The lighting in the kitchen was poor. The mat in the kitchen was stained, the windows could have done with a clean and there were some cobwebs in the main bedroom. There was a small leak from the shower room on to the stairs. If we'd gone in warm weather and had been able to take advantage of the lovely garden, outdoor seating and views (and if the smell had gone) I'm sure we'd have enjoyed our stay much more. As it was we couldn't help noticing the need for some repairs and upgrading. The owners are obviously proud of the restoration and DIY they've done on the cottage and make an effort for visitors (wine, biscuits and chocolate thrown in) and the visitors book has many positive appreciative comments. Attention to the other less positive ones which are peppered through the book would make staying there a more reliable consistently good experience for future visitors (especially anyone going there in the winter) .

    "Had a Lovely week , cottage in great location, blists hill Victorian village Is excellent. Cottage was nice enough but not as good as I thought it would be when I saw it online. The cottage is quite basic and could do with updating , a proper freezer would be much better and there is a very weird smell,dodgy step on stairs , doors and windows especially door to kitchen and single bedroom window doesn't shut properly, out of date sweetners and coffee were left by the coffee cups , it's very cold and heating is slow to work , no fire fuel included when I thought it said it would be , some buttons on the sky control doesn't work and also there was Abit of a ladybugs infestation throughout mainly the upstairs of the house with about six or seven in the main bed room randomly. We found signal to be really bad in this area so a WiFi box in the cottage would of been useful .Cottage was nice and cosy in size perfect for the two of us , location was brillent and bed and sofas were comfy ,Parking permit was good although not used and some shortbread among a few other things was greatly appreciated, lovely owners and all in all a nice cottage for a break away in a great location , wouldn't recommend for smaller children but perfect for a couple. Certainly wouldn't rule out staying here again , in fact we were looking into booking again next Sept/Oct but unfortunately it seems to be fully booked ."

    "A lovely beautifully renovated victorian cottage in a quiet setting. Very helpful and friendly owners who have lovingly restored the cottage themselves. We had little chocolate treats left on our beds and shortbread, milk and tea & coffee in the kitchen which was a very pleasant extra. The beds are extremely comfortable and cosy and my son said it was the best bed he's ever slept in. Can get very chilly in the evenings so take a blanket with you for snuggling in the living room. DVD very temporamental and kept turning itself off while watching a film but soon played nicely. Would like to mention that the cottage is positioned in the hillside and involves lots of walking up steep inclines so not suitable for the less mobile, also the road out the front of the house is also extremely narrow and you can only fit one car at a time. There is no parking outside the house although we thought that there was but a council letter confirms that the road is council owned and there is no resident parking, the owners supply a parking permit for use at any of the car parks in Ironbridge which is a great help, we parked at the Gorge Museum car park overnight and it's only a few minutes walk from the cottage so wasn't a problem. Overall a lovely stay and would recommend to others. "

    "Situated in a lovely location, the cottage was very clean and the welcome pack was lovely.The owners had worked hard at restoring the cottage sympathetic to meet age and history. The linen and towels were excellent and the beds were very comfortable.My only issues are regarding the shower room and lack of equipment in the kitchen. I also think the description should have mentioned how inaccessible the cottage was both to get to, and within. The shower room had a lovely toilet and sink but the shower was very difficult to get into as it had two steep steps leading up to the cubicle. Also the internal steps were very steep and went around a corner making them difficult to navigate.And I would suggest that those going to the cottage should take things such as foil and their own washing up liquid as they were not provided.Overall it was an excellent holiday and I am very grateful to the cottage owners for all their hard work."

    "This cottage was very cosy and the period restoration was lovely. Everything was provided and nice touches were the welcome tray of tea and biscuits on arrival and the bathrobe and towels. The stairs in the cottage are very narrow and steep so you need to take care. Access to the cottage is up very steep and narrow lanes and parking was difficult outside. However, a free parking permit was provided so that you can park in the car park at the bottom of the lane once you have unloaded the car. I was here the week before Christmas and Ironbridge is a lovely place at this time with its decorations, tree, brass band and gift shops. Would happily stay here again. Dec 2009."
