Are you looking for picturesque landscapes where you can while away the hours roving in the great outdoors? Somewhere rural and tranquil, but close enough to home so as to not warrant too long a drive?

The Welsh Borders are often overshadowed by the neighbouring regions of Pembrokeshire, Snowdonia and the Cotswolds, but rent a cottage along the Welsh boundary and you'll soon realise what you've been missing. Comprising four distinct counties- Cheshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire- there's something for everyone to explore and discover on a cottage holiday near the Welsh Borders.

Let's start with Cheshire, home to a patchwork of pretty green fields, quaint villages and one of the UK's most historic cities: Chester. Here, holidaymakers can enjoy the vibrancy of one of the UK's most fascinating cities whilst being within easy reach of plenty of charming countryside- what could better? We've a great range of cottages to rent in Cheshire, so why not give it a go and see what you'll discover?

The Welsh Borders- A Wonderful Holiday Destination

South of Cheshire lies Shropshire, arguably the prettiest of Wales' neighbouring counties. Boasting its very own AONB (Are of Outstanding Natural Beauty) as well as the captivating medieval town of Shrewsbury, Shropshire is a hidden jewel not to be missed. The Shropshire Hills AONB may just be the best place for walking in England, thanks to its breath taking, mountainous vistas that seem to stretch to the horizon.

What else can you discover on a cottage holiday near the Welsh Borders? Try Herefordshire, home to the pristine Wye Valley where kayaking is the most popular way to explore. Head into Wales to break a sweat hiking in the Brecon Beacons, whose Eastern heathlands meet English soil. Trek a long a woodland trail in the mysterious Forest of Dean, or explore the cobbled streets of Gloucester, where history and heritage abound.
