The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

The ease with which the booking was made. The person I spoke to was friendly and helpful. The booking process was simple.

Straddling the English/Welsh border, this beautiful county
features a lovely collection of Shropshire country
cottages surrounded by stunning countryside.
And the region is jam-packed with all kinds of things to see and
do. Top of the list is the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, with
ten museums unravelling our industrial heritage. Discover
extraordinary follies at Hawkstone Park and Roman remains at
Wroxeter. Glide slowly along the Llangollen Canal or pick up
gardening tips at Stapeley Water Gardens. Historians will delight
in the wealth of castles and stately homes, while the pretty market
town of Ludlow is crammed with award-winning restaurants attracting
foodies from miles around.
But perhaps your main reason to book a Shropshire country
cottage is to take advantage of all that glorious countryside and
enjoy activities like walking, cycling and fishing. Walking is
especially popular, with the 'Walkers are Welcome Town' of
Church Stretton and numerous routes of varying lengths - climb the
Wrekin for a tabletop view of fifteen counties (inspiration for
Tolkien's Middle Earth), or take up the challenge of the
Offa's Dyke National Trail.
Or do something different during your Shropshire country cottage
holiday and float across the countryside by hot-air
balloon, or glide from the top of the Long Mynd ridge. Truly
