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.

"Unless you have a book - a very big book - of superlatives - and I don't! - then this review absolutely won't do justice to this exceptional holiday let. It not only does exactly what it 'says on the tin' - but so, so much more. Four of us stayed at S2846 for 4 days and nights in November. Whilst it is in our home county, it is, without a doubt, the most relaxing place we have ever stayed in anywhere in this world. All plans to walk, read books, do craft work etc fell by the wayside from the time of our arrival. I fear we were too idle even to take any pictures of S2846 - such was our level of relaxation. Set in beautiful countryside, with lovely views - this was quiet and calm at its very best and we so loved that. Even the first frosts of the year were so beautiful to see. The whole property is beautifully furnished and equipped. There is nothing we needed that hadn't been provided - even down to a complete range of spices! I have never seen so many drinking glasses styles provided for every possible type of drink! Then the hot tub and the log burner - hence the girls saying 'I've gone to heaven'. Having planned meal menus and taken along foods to cook - it won't come as any surprise that, being so relaxed - we were beckoned and then seduced [several times] by the local pub - The Stiperstones Inn - for meals and drinks. A very friendly, community orientated, pub providing real ale and a menu range to suit all tastes and pockets. Really great hosts here in Phil and Lara - who's prime motivation is making your visit enjoyable and what you want it to be - and not their convenience and profit. We had beautifully cooked meals and so enjoyed them. The Sunday roast was quite exceptional. I can't speak too highly of this holiday let folks - many such reviews say something like - we'll be back. We went one better and booked the same weekend in 2015 after being there for less than a day such was our delight in this property and the almost magical relaxing effect it has. So don't pass this by folks - it's more than a gem. We made no where near the use we could have of the offerings of the property or the surrounding countryside - but came home rested, recharged and read to do December!"

"We had a fabulous week at S2846 during February half term, which was very reasonably priced for a week during school holidays. We stayed here with my parents (for Mum's 60th) and we had various guests visiting us during our stay and they loved it too. Our dog George loved his stay too and came home happy and tired. The chapel was clean, tidy and kitchen was well stocked with all the bits and pieces you could need (and more!). The chapel felt very light and airy but warm and cosy at the same time, the beds were so comfy that I slept like a log every night. Wifi was good and a decent speed compared to other properties we've stayed at. Chapel is really well located for walking, there are numerous walks you can do (leaflets and maps in chapel with all the details). The hot tub was one of our favourite additions to the chapel, we used it everyday after our walks, it was the perfect way to relax. The Stiperstones Inn down the road was our second home for the week, we ate here everyday. Great pub grub at fab prices and friendly staff and customers that made us feel very welcome. Phil and Lara were on hand to sort out any problems we had and give us advise on places to go and see, truly lovely helpful owners (pub and chapel). Nextdoor to the pub is one of the best shops I have every been into! My dad went in every morning for the paper and we used it each day for bits and pieces, the shop sells everything you could possibly want and more, at great prices......seeing is believing!!!!! Everything about our stay was perfect, so much so we booked up with the owners for next year before we left! Can't wait to return :-)"

"There was lots of space for 15 of us to spread out with lots of seating areas. The main sitting room had nice seating with a log burner. There was a large dining room with an extendable table to get us all round at mealtimes. The kitchen was big and well stocked with utensils and had a smaller table and chairs and a window seat for smaller gatherings. There was also an AGA which took a bit of getting used to and you could not cook anything if you were in a rush but there was also microwave for ‘emergencies’. The property had 2 dishwashers which were very useful for larger families. There was a washing machine in the utility room but no tumble dryer which we found slightly problematic at times and, other than the fridges and freezer there was nowhere to store other food. The grounds surrounding the property are nice and the small children played croquet whilst the older ones played tennis. The 9 seater hot tub was a huge bonus. There was a separate cottage with 2 bedrooms (1 double bedroom and 1 single). The cottage was entirely self-sufficient with a kitchen and shower room and was only a few steps from the main house. On our arrival we were met by the owner who showed us around and how things worked etc which was useful. We had his phone number if we needed him and did not feel that it was necessary for him to keep coming back and letting himself into the house to check on us. That aside we had a wonderful time."
