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.

Mr DaviesMrs Mottramkeitheats - verified booking

"While the property itself was fine, it lacked certain small details and finesse that make a difference and that we had experienced at other Sykes properties. For example: 1) no welcome pack at all. After a 4 hour journey to get there, it would have been nice to have at least have some milk in the fridge to be able to make a cup of tea, without having to drive another 10 miles to Church Stretton and back to get some! This has been provided at other Sykes properties we have rented, in some cases tea, coffee, biscuits and even a bottle of wine! 2) while perfectly clean, many light bulbs were either missing or not working, in particular there were no working outside lights, which would have been helpful given the time of year, and arriving after dark. 3) the lighting in the sitting area was completely inadequate, making reading in the evenings there impossible. Some side tables with lamps (for which power points existed) would have also made that area seem cosier. 4) the beds in the master bedroom and twin bedroom were old and uncomfortable and all the bed linen was definitely past its best and of poor quality. When we arrived there were no towels out in the bedrooms or bathrooms, although these were located in the airing cupboard 5) the property instructions were practically non-existent as were details of local amenities apart from a list that provided no commentary 6) some of the cooking utensils in the kitchen were extremely cheap and barely fit for purpose. 7) some of these comments had been made in the visitors book by previous guest but evidently ignored by the owners 8) given that the owners lived next door, one might have expected them to look in to check that everything was OK, but this didn't happen, and even when we did see them around on the property, they were not overly friendly or welcoming.It was very peaceful, and also quite remote. The cottage was well equipped and spacious. We did a lot of walking - the weather was very good for November and the views from the hills were stunning. We also visited Blist Hill, Ironbridge.This is a beautiful cottage that's truly spacious and very comfortable. It's neat, tidy and modern, and it's in a superb rural location less than five miles from Church Stretton. So why just 4 out of 5? Basically because I couldn't rate it 4.5! There were, to me, some strange omissions. The first was the lack of a tumble dryer. I'm sure this was made clear in the details but in a property of this high standard I'd really have liked one to be provided. The second was lack of information about how to adjust the central heating. The owners live on site but we really didn't want to disturb them late in the evening when we were starting to feel A bit chilly! Finally only one of the three double bedrooms has wardrobe space. That didn't bother my wife and I as there were only the two of us but it might be a concern for a larger party. Please understand that these are only minor gripes - certainly not deal breakers. Overall S13230 is a fabulous property and, if you book it, I'm sure you won't be disappointed! I would book again without hesitation!"
