An unassuming county, nestling alongside the Welsh border yet
tucked away in the deep, lush heart of England, Shropshire is a
region to surprise and delight the most well-travelled of visitors.
Away from the masses, Shropshire quietly celebrates its
unspoilt, rolling countryside, its gentle hills ideal for walkers
yet so relatively empty, its ancient Tudor market towns of
half-timbered houses, sleepy canals and proud industrial heritage.
Ever since the Romans first passed through, this region has honed
the art of hospitality to perfection. A Shropshire holiday cottage
allows you to dine out in the region's fine restaurants, pubs
and inns, or source your own ingredients at established towns that
are a gourmet shopper's delight, such as Ludlow, Shrewsbury or
Shropshire holiday cottages are the ideal place to retreat from
the stresses and strains of modern life. Keen walkers and casual
ramblers alike will find sanctuary amid the quiet trails and
pathways of the Shropshire Hills, free from the throngs of visitors
so often found at better known beauty spots. Soak up the views from
the high tor of Stiperstones, enjoy an idyllic ramble on Wenlock
Edge or at the Long Mynd in the south of the county, or enjoy the
freedom of cycling on two wheels, lapping up the miles of
well-mapped routes along canal paths and bridleways through sleepy
country villages with welcoming local pubs. But if you prefer
things a little livelier, for all the peace and tranquillity to be
found on a Shropshire cottage holiday, the county is also rich with
visitor attractions, making it equally appealing as a destination
for families or those seeking a balance between leisure and more
active pursuits. With all there is to see and do while staying in a
cottage in Shropshire you are sure to have a truly unforgettable
Many of the region's attractions are linked to its
industrial heritage. The story of the industrial revolution unfolds
at designated World Heritage Site, Ironbridge, with
its nine different gorge museums. You can follow the trail of
legendary King Arthur at Wroxeter; the
mythical setting of Camelot and the authentic location of a Roman
city complete with remains, ruins and artefacts. It also has
vineyards that are well worth visiting too! Take a trip back in
time on the Severn Valley Railway, visit historic Stokesay, Acton Burnell,
Whittington or Ludlow Castles or the Royal Airforce Museum at
Cosford. Those with older children will enjoy innovative Enginuity
while families with little ones will never be far from one of the
many farm experience attractions to be found in this agricultural
If you're looking for an indulgent break with fine foods,
wine, culture and shopping then a Shropshire cottage holiday is the
perfect solution. Choose a cosy Shropshire cottage near Ludlow, the
region's gourmet capital, and enjoy Michelin starred
restaurants. Alternatively, you can linger among its ancient
streets brimful of enticing specialist shops and mouth-watering
delis, dedicated to every imaginable delight from chocolate to
cheese and much more besides. Or pick out a Shropshire cottage near
an historic market town, such as Church
Stretton, Bridgnorth or
Oswestry in the Welsh Borders, and join in with market day in
time-honoured fashion. If more contemporary shopping is your bag,
then enjoy it with a twist of history in the Tudor half-timbered
shops of Shrewsbury or Ludlow.
The gardens of Shropshire and its neighbouring counties come in
all shapes and sizes. From those at Powis, Chirk and Cholmondeley
Castles to the National Trust gardens at Attingham Park, Erdigg and
Benthall, and not forgetting Weston Park and Hawkstone Historic
Park, there are water gardens and formal gardens, plantsmen's
gardens and nurseries, all blooming furiously thanks to the
county's uniquely rich geological structure. Little wonder then
that the region hosts acclaimed flower festivals, such as
Shrewsbury's Flower Show and the Wem Sweet Pea Festival.
And did you know that Shropshire has it's own 'Lake
District'? The northern part of the country is home to 'The
Meres', a series of nine glacial lakes. Nature lovers will want
to spend a day at Ellesmere; take a
boat out on the water and indulge in a spot of fishing or bird
watching, or enjoy a circular ramble around Colemere.
One famous author poetically described Shropshire as 'the
nearest earthly thing to Paradise'. So whether your idea of a
Shropshire cottage paradise is a cosy hideaway with a wood-burning
stove near Church Stretton, a break in a
holiday cottage in Market Drayton or a luxury cottage
for a weekend break in Cleobury
Mortimer, your Shropshire cottage holiday is sure to
provide the key to a tranquil yet energising break.
