Relax in a Shrewsbury cottage in Shropshire's splendid county town.
Welcome to one of England's best preserved medieval towns, awash with black-and-white buildings and oozing atmosphere. Shrewsbury is a delight to explore on foot and there are some fantastic guided tours. You'll discover hundreds of listed buildings and curious street names as you wander the town's cobbled shuts and passageways.
Those with a passion for shopping will love the quirky shops selling all kinds of interesting goods, including sensational food shops and wine merchants - great for stocking your Shrewsbury cottage's cupboards. There's also an indoor market four times a week. If dining out is more your style, Shrewsbury is hot on the heels of nearby Ludlow, with a string of award-winning restaurants, inviting tearooms and cosy pubs.
Shrewsbury Abbey, Shrewsbury Castle, Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery and St. Mary's Church are all worth a visit. Outside the library is the statue of Charles Darwin, the town's most famous son. Enjoy a picnic in the sunken garden of Quarry Park, home to the annual flower show. Browse all kinds of art in all kinds of galleries. Enjoy an evening at the local Jazz and Roots Club. Or head down to the river for day-trips, boat hire and riverside walks, a favourite pastime of Darwin.
Just out of town are Wroxeter Roman City and Attingham Park, two historic jewels not-to-be-missed.
So if you're looking for a stay in a fantastic heritage town, try a Shrewsbury cottage soon!
