Book a holiday cottage in Shropshire, England’s most rural county, for a peaceful trip with friends or family. The small county town of Shrewsbury lies at the centre of Shropshire, whilst the surrounding countryside is dotted with historic market towns and quaint, charming villages, where you'll find a veritable trove of cosy holiday cottages.
Many visitors book a holiday cottage in Shrewsbury, or the market town of Ludlow, with its fine medieval centre. Those who want to experience the county's lesser-known treasures however, will find accommodation in the county's smaller towns. Book a cottage in in Wellington for easy access to The Wrekin, a hill and Iron Age fort, and one of the county's most significant landmarks, or stay in traditional worker's cottages in the UNESCO-protected Ironbridge Gorge area.
The southwest of the county comprises the beautiful Shropshire Area of Outstanding Beauty, which incorporates the villages of Church Stretton and Cravens Arms, close to the medieval Stokesay Castle. Those on a romantic break will find charming holiday cottages in Clun, home to atmospheric Norman castle ruins, a packhorse bridge and the beautiful River Clun that meanders through the centre. The small town of Bishops Castle borders the AONB and despite its size, counts two museums and the historic Three Tuns Brewery among its attractions.
The wealth of holiday cottages Shropshire has to offer means that there’s literally something for everyone. Book a large luxury house with room for a reunion and facilities such as a pool and hot tub, or perhaps you'd prefer a cosy cottage for two, complete with an open fire and period features. You’ll also find of family-friendly holiday lodges, with everything you need for a comfortable stay including cot beds, as well as numerous pet-friendly accommodation options.
