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.

Ms Georgeraymos45Mrs HabermehlMr GillMr Murrell - verified booking

"The interior is beautifully appointed giving it a very homely, traditional feel with all mod cons. The dressing room and well equipped kitchen with washing machine are particular bonuses for a small cottage. Yes you have to take care upstairs with the low beams, but after one or two bumps you soon learn to duck in the appropriate places ! The views from the cottage and outside sitting areas are outstanding. If it's peace, quiet and a country escape you're looking for you will definitely appreciate Lealands. The owners are a lovely couple who have created a gem of a place. Would highly recommend.A well appointed cottage , thoughtfully presented every thing to a good standard . The views were amazing and an ever changing scene day by day . The hosts were helpful and everything was as promised . The walk to the local pub was easy and the food and drink choice to suit all. Very handy to plenty of towns and villages . Would stop here again .Cottage was immaculate & had everything you need for a lovely holiday. Hosts were warm & friendly .Shower over bath awkward and not for the immobile. The tranquility of the area overrode any of the misgivings. Totally relaxing.The owners on site were both very friendly and helpful while allowing us to enjoy our break in our own style. Well done. We will certainly recommend both Sykes and the cottage to our friends."

- AJL1, June 2017 - verified booking

"This lovely cottage in the village of Norbury is charming, secluded and a very comfortable base for us and our two children (5 and 8). The wood burner is lovely on a chilly evening and the kitchen well appointed and comfortable. The garden area is to the front of the house but the road is very quiet. Bedrooms are very comfortable and the owners supply the bathroom with lovely Scottish hand made toiletries, a r and al luxury. We enjoyed a lovely walk at the Long Mynd and visiting quirky shops in Bishops Castle. Lunch at Restaurant Severn in Ironbridge was an absolute treat and excellent value. Biking essential however as the restaurant is small. We also enjoyed RAF Gosford on the way home although agreed with reviews that you need hours there. My only reservation with S25222would be for anyone with very young children or those finding stairs difficult as the stairs are very steep. Also the local Inn also run by the owners has a fine dining restaurant that many trip advisor rivers have enjoyed. For us with young kids it was very expensive for quite small portions - after a day in the fresh shropshire air we would have been better off having a hearty bar meal elsewhere. The food was however very tasty and well cooked."

"this is the largest unit of 6 or 7 in a farmyard courtyard . all apparently converted recently . the owners live in the farmhouse on site and are incredibly friendly and helpful . we regularly take breaks in holiday cottages/cabins and usually find it advisable to book a larger than advertised property to be comfortale - this is not the case here , all bedrooms are of generous size with good size en-suites , the kitchen is huge and well equipped . there is a huge dining room which also has easy chairs and a tv , connected to ( via open plan arch ) a massive lounge with comfy seating for all. all fittings are of a good standard . outside has a BBQ with dining table , also a good size hot-tub . the only slight negative is that there is no "view" from outside , there is a barn play area with games and books to suit kids and adults . overall i would say this the best we have visited as regards the property itself , just slightly marred by its lack of outlook . i would stress it is sensibly priced and extremely good value in comparison to most"

"Booking the cottage was easy. Cottage very good value for money. Pluses. Warm and cosy, bags of piping hot water and the central heating system was excellent, comfy sofa and chair, cottage was clean and welcoming, nice touch with a bottle of wine and nibbles on arrival plus tea tray and milk and biscuits all laid up ready. Also great to actually have some cupboard space to store our food, lots of cottages we rent have no storage and we have to leave food out on worktops all week. Masses of wardrobe space too if we had needed it. Also a good vacuum cleaner so we could give the carpet the once over. Great walking from the cottage too, very important for us. Minuses. Very few. The garden furniture could do with being replaced and the cottage could do with a coat of paint to freshen it, however we are at the end of the season so this may be on the to do list for Winter. We would certainly have no hesitation in re booking or recommending Robin's Nest"

"Spent Xmas at Robins Nest and it was wonderful. A lovely Xmas tree was in the lounge and a festive wreath on the door and fresh flowers to welcome us. If you want to get away from the madding crowd this is the ideal place to go. We found some fabulous places to visit and a couple of really old pubs in the area serving great food but we also cooked in our accommodation as it has all the facilities there. There’s a separate laundry room alongside the main house and we were invited to have a look at all the animals on the farm. It is a proper working farm and we took our dog and had some wonderful walks in the countryside. It’s a very picturesque setting and so pleased we found it; it’s a little gem. And the beds are so comfortable too. We had them made up as twins but you can have it as a double if needed. It was very clean and tidy and lovely and warm. Overall this gave us the perfect Xmas break and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it."
