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.

Jane - verified booking

"The positives are that the house is big, the fire is fantastic and is very well equipped for large groups, in fact it was probably had some of the largest cooking pans we had ever had in a rented house. It was lovely and warm due to the fire and the main barn are was very sympathetically done and was a great space to eat and socialise. The rooms were comfortable although the beds were simple doubles, a shame as the bedrooms are large and bigger beds would make such a difference. We did have an issue but it was resolved by the Estate manager that day which was vey good. There were a few negatives but nothing that would prevent us from returning. The main issue is the water pressure in the showers which was very poor - everyone had to take it in turns which for a large group was not ideal. Also not every bathroom had a shower and as most people prefer them, bathrooms with them, had to be used my multiple people. The actual design of the house is a little awkward in terms of flow. Due to fact that the cars were generally parked at the back in the courtyard space, when entering the leaving the house the doors into the kitchen were used as the main doors. All the space to keep muddy and in our case, wet boots and jackets however was located by the front door on the other side of the kitchen. A small thing that was just annoying. The sink leaked and the dishwasher stopped working but a plumber was sent out and fixed them on the same day. We did however have a great time despite the weather"

"From the friendly welcome from the staff at Eley’s Pork Pie shop (highly recommended by the way), to the long evenings sitting on the west-facing balcony watching the sunset over Ironbridge Gorge, every aspect of this cottage is comfortable and cosy. The cottage was perfectly proportioned for our party of three and would be spacious for two. The welcome pack of wine, chocolates, plenty of coffee, tea bags, biscuits and of course an Eley’s pork pie, was probably the best that we’ve ever received in a self-catering cottage. Eley’s own car park, only a few minutes walk from the cottage, was a real bonus in a small town with limited parking. There’s plenty to do in the area - even though the weather was foul, the Ironbridge museums are mainly indoors. They’re free to Art Pass holders or you can buy an annual Passport that allows access to all ten. WIthin easy walking distance are the Museum of the Gorge, Merrythought VIllage (antique centre and teddy bear shop), boat rides on the Severn, the Iron Bridge itself, and our favourite eating place, the Malthouse pub. We’d highly recommend this little cottage, centrally located yet quietly situated. June 2012. "

"My group thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at S16856, there were just a few issues: there was no hot water or heating in the annex the first morning this was resolved very quickly, we would have found two dishwashers more useful than two washing machines, the bathroom arrangements were a bit of a problem as three had to share the jack and jill bathroom including the person on the mezzanine up the spiral staircase, whilst this is probably ok for family groups for mature adult singletons it is an issue, this would be helped if there was a cloakroom/loo on the ground floor. The mezzanine bedroom is rather inaccessible added to which we could hear rats/mice/squirrels in the rafters! The addition of a shower in the annex bathroom would be useful rather than the shower for the sauna which is rather exposed! We loved the setting and the barn is a beautiful conversation, it suited our requirements and was a great base for our garden visits. I would certainly recommend it to others."

"If you book S16856 you won't be disappointed. We stayed for New Year 2017 and thought it was an ideal cottage us. It is very clean and perfect for an extended family. Lots of space for all. As mentioned in previous reviews, we thought the room above the spiral staircase was quirky but pleased we didn't have to use as a bedroom. The rest of the bedrooms are clean with good comfy beds. The kitchen is huge with plenty of crockery, cutlery and pots and pans. We were able to have breakfast in the kitchen and evening meal round the huge table in the lounge. We were quite warm around the cottage, but found the lounge area to be a bit drafty with the open fire difficult to maintain. If this could be addressed it would be perfect."

"We struck gold when we booked S16855. It exceeded our expectations in every way. Gus, our 4 year old Golden Retriever, couldn't have been happier either. There was a dog bowl with water and another with biscuits for him on arrival, and a super basket of dog toys for him to raid in the cottage. We had a delicious lemon drizzle cake and fresh flowers. Despite staying in February with cold weather, we were warm and cosy. There was also plenty to do in the area. We could easily have stayed another week.Sally, Kevin and Woody (their Jack Russel) were most welcoming, helpful and flexible with our booking. We would definitely recommend the cottage to friends and plan to return ourselves."
