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.

Mrs New - verified booking

"The most difficult thing to contend with was that apart from a relatively small decked area at the back, there was no secure place for dogs to use for toilet purposes first thing in the morning and in the evening. Although it was clear that this was a farm and dogs had to be on a lead because of this, it would be extremely easy for a secure area to be outside the front of the property as there was a lot of area which could be used. The kitchen, which is very big, and items in it were not clean and until we bought them, there was no dishwasher tablets, rinse aid, hand wash, washing up liquid etc available. At least four of the mugs in the kitchen had chips around the rim. There were a few empty plastic containers with next to nothing in them. There were quite a few small issues, batteries not working, lightbulbs not working and the shower continually dripped. S6610 was huge and has the potential to be a really lovely place to stay and it was a shame that these issues rather tainted the stay. The location was fine as we had visits to make both in Wales and further in Shropshire."

"S6610s is a bit like a tardis. The outside looks good, but inside it is stunning. The entrance hall has a day bed which pulls out to a double bed, the utility is huge with washer, tumble dryer and a selection of irons plus lots of extra bedding. The sitting room is huge and looks out on the paddock with a friendly donkey and pair of Shetland ponies. The kitchen is large and well equipped with patio doors that lead out to a paved area with picnic bench and barbecue. The master bedroom is stunning, with exposed wooden beam and plenty of room in the second double bedroom and single bedroom. We have 2 dogs and normally struggle to find places to stay. S6610s is by far and away the best rental we have found.Thoughtful touches such as games, books and dvds being available, plus the friendly farm dog Sid who greeted us every day were an added bonus. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone. Amazing."

- Loveitaly56, June 2014 - verified booking

"We really enjoyed our stay here. The cabin has all you need. Its not very big, but has lovely cotton sheets, its very clean and basics (tea, coffee, sugar and loo roll!), washing-up liquid etc., towels and tea towels are all provided. Great parking. The owners are friendly and Mike is very helpful (I'm sure Val is too but we only met her once). The location is in a very peaceful valley, little traffic (none by the cabin) and spectacular views. The main reason to stay here though is the view from the cabin. Right by the river, we spent hours watching the cows, the sheep and the antics of the lambs and we saw so many birds we had not seen before. (Mike and Val provide a book for identification)."

A FlipKey verified reviewer - verified booking

"Lovely, well equipped cottage. Very comfy double bed! Great for access to beautiful town centre of Shrewsbury by foot. Lovely river walk + castle + train station on the way into town. Loads of history, fantastic market (lots of french food for some reason, yummy cheese anyway!) and great for shopping- literally any high street store you can think of! I would say it is fairly baby friendly as well, we didn't have any trouble with our 4 months old boy (you have to bring your own travel cot, bouncy or high chair too). All in all a lovely stay, hopefully will come back again soon. P.S. A bottle of cava and chocolate sweets on the arrival was a lovely touch. We really enjoyed them. Thank you x"
