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.

About Shropshire

What our customers are saying about our holiday cottages in shropshire to rent.

    "One of the best holidays we have ever had. When we arrived the range had already been lit and the kettle was boiling. The house was beautifully clean. There was plenty of coal and paraffine for the week.Being Victorian farm fans we dressed as Victorians and used the tin bath infront of the range. Our children really enjoyed the job of fetching water from the pump and filling the coal scuttle from the bunker, putting new candles in the holders every morning, cleaning out the fire and relighting it. Why do we need electricity?The range kept the house beautifully warm and was not difficult to cook on as long as you realised that it took longer to cook than a microwave. The food tasted better too! It was not difficult to heat water, using the range, for washing up etc. Washing up by candle light is not difficult either. The larder kept everything really fresh so no fridge was not a problemFor shopping Tuffins was brilliant. It even sold 'black lead' for polishing the range. The food centre was good too but a little further away.We will visit Henley Cottage again for another holiday. Thank you for a wonderful time."

    "We absolutely loved the experience of staying at 1 Henley Cottage and have already discussed possibly returning next year.We loved the garden and the surrounding countryside but most of all we loved living with oil lamps, candles and a range and the way it made us appreciate what we have at home.We visited Acton Scott working farm twice we enjoyed it so much. Loen (8) said his favourite bit was holding the tiny day-old chick for a few minutes and I enjoyed spinning with Sue and Joan in the Fleece Barn. The only teeny criticism is that the beds in the attic were uncomfortable (perhaps the mattresses need to be bashed about a bit) and the teacups were a bit too modern.Otherwise it was simply bliss.Thank you."

    "Beautiful cottage in idyllic location. Cottage was very clean and nicely maintained in keeping with its Victorian authenticity. The details state initial fuel is included in the price but the owners were very generous and we had enough to last us three nights heating two rooms with a frost outside and we still had some left over! Only downside was that the modern outside shower was a bit rubbish! All I would say is that if you are looking for a relaxing holiday this is not for you. Fires have to be maintained and there is nowhere "comfy" to sit but if, like we were, you are going for the Victorian experience you will not be disappointed! Would definitely recommend. Sept 2012."

    "We had a great time at Henley Cottage. It was a unique place and the whole family found it really interesting. There are loads of great things to do in the area, and we will definitely be back. However, for families thinking of staying here, I would want them to know that the window on the top floor (which you can see at the top of the photo), which is set up as a bedroom that can be used by children, has a deep, climbable window sill, and a window that is not lockable. I found this very stressful, and it meant that our children could not play in the bedroom unattended. A lock in place to secure the window would have upgraded my review to 10/10"

    "this cottage is exactly what it say's, if you want to experience what it was like 100yrs ago then go for it, the property is in the countryside, we was welcomed by squirrels in the garden, in the evening we had hedgehogs, there was countless birds, the road is very quiet so good for walking, there are shops and pubs but these are a car journey away, we was visited as we arrive to make sure we could work the range and oil lamps and again the following day to make sure we was not having troubles, this was a truly enjoyable experience and with forward thinking not a hardship, just a chilling few days, we shall be going back, thanks"
