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.

Richard - verified booking

"Really enjoyed our stay last week. Shared the cottage with another family, 4 adults and three children in total. Plenty of room and comfortable. Village is v.quiet and nearest pub, the Nags head was a 5 minute drive on the way to Pontesbury which has a bakery, a co-op which is open 6am-10pm every day, two Chinese’s takeaways and a chip shop.Beds in cottage were comfortable, clean big bathrooms with instant hot water etc. Tv has free view which was a downgrade from sky, but more than adequate for the week. The owner Jayne who lives next door was very friendly as well as her dogs.The village is 5 miles from Shrewsbury which has the usual amenities, bowling, cinema and supermarkets. Also has a museum of local military history in the castle which was worth a visit.One hr south is Rhayader where the red kite feeding station is situated. Again worth a visit to see approx 300-400 wild red kites feeding 50 meters away and only £20 for a family of 4. Also managed a walk up Earls hill which has great views, but not an easy walk. The first few hundred meters were gravel tracks which soon became several hundred meters of very steep banks through the woods, but definitely worth the walk.Planned to go to Snowdon, but too far for children to walk and trains booked way in advance, so if this is on your agenda book in advance.Would We return, definitely. Plenty more to see and do that we could not manage in our week. A very beautiful part of the country which we would contemplate moving to."

"This was such a good week! The weather forecast had been so full of doom and gloom-indeed it was very cold every night with ground frost most mornings-but the sun shone every day and we were able to walk from the door as we'd hoped to do. The network of footpaths close by is extensive in every direction and what wonderful countryside it is! The cottage, being detached and elevated, is just ideal. We loved the spacious living room, finding the chairs comfy and felt very much at home. The beds were fine, the temperature plummeted overnight so we did leave the ticking-over. No doubt when the trees are in full leaf there would be less light in the living room, but we found it very homely and comfortable, especially when the log fire was burning. The TV worked, kitchen equipment no problem-except the fridge hadn't been de-frosted for many a month and that was a job I had to do on arrival."

Jennifer - verified booking

"I found the lodge very comfortable if not a little compact compared to other lodges I have stayed in. I enjoyed the holiday very much but have two small negatives to remark on. Firstly the hot tub was not ready the first night of our stay as not up to temperature at just 26 degrees. My friend and I found Bob who told us what to do to raise the temperature, although there was no way it was going to be ready that evening. My second negative was the weight of the hot tub which was unbelievably heavy. Plus you needed to lay it flat on the ground in case the wind lifted it. If I had gone with my mother or even my sister, rather than a friend we would never have been able to lift the lid off at all. I haven't the most healthiest back so I was worried about the lift. Apart from the above I enjoyed all aspects of the lodge and holiday."

"Really lovely cottage with plenty of space for us all (8 adults 5 children). It was clean and tidy and the owner was easily reached if we needed anything.The hot tub was a big plus too and very good fun. Again, very clean.Gorgeous views too with a wonderful patio area and bbq! Well equipped kitchen and the larder was perfect for all our food!We found it was just a little too far out in the countryside (not a negative for most people probably). We wanted to order take away a few nights but no-one could find us! And it would have been nice to go for a stroll from the cottage into a village or to a pub but it's just too far up a long concrete drive. Such an excellent place though it didn't matter too much.5 star accommodation! Thank you S25905!"

"S16825 suited us very well as a couple with a small dog. We have been to Wales and Shropshire many times and the location of S16825 is very handy for days out. The cottage was well equipped with the little things that I seem to find missing from other cottage rentals. There is a back garden fully enclosed with no views, the front garden has the views and even though it was a terraced property you did not feel overlooked and best of all was the silence at night. There is a small shop and post office just down the road. We stayed 2-9 May 2015 and overall we had a very pleasant stay."
