Find cottages in ShropshireVisit Shropshire

Although Shropshire could be considered a quiet corner of England, this rural county near the Welsh border has plenty of visitor attractions, a rich cultural and historical heritage, beautiful gardens and fascinating museums.

Shropshire has many picturesque historical towns and villages, for example Ludlow, which John Betjeman once described as “the loveliest town in England”. This bustling market town has a huge number of listed buildings, mostly from the Georgian period, fine restaurants, traditional inns and speciality shops.

Shrewsbury, the counties principal town is of Saxon heritage which was further developed by the Tudors. Located close to the River Severn the town is renowned for its castle, rising spires, abbey and green open parkland. It's also the perfect place to see some wonderful medieval buildings.

The county is the epitome of the most perfect rural countryside you can find, a place that has been formed over millions of years into a tranquil landscape of rolling hills and river gorges. Speaking of which the Iron Bridge Gorge Museums are a series of museums located in the Iron Bridge Gorge near the town of Telford. It's here that the beginning of the industrial revolution first took hold. Spanning the River Severn the outdoor and indoor museums offer a fascinating glimpse into the past.

The regions strategic location tells the tale of a turbulent past, evidenced by the hill forts, earthworks and castles which can be found throughout the Welsh borders. These include Ludlow Castle which was built in the 11th century and the Iron Age Hill Fort at Oswestry which covers some forty acres. Moreton Corbet Castle built in the 13th century was later extended in the 16th century. As well as these fascinating structures to Shropshire's past, the county has some lovely English Heritage properties like Stokesay Castle.

Other great days out ideas include a visit to the RAF Museum at Cosford, where you can see over 70 historical aircraft housed in 3 wartime hangers including world's oldest Spitfire and Lincoln Bomber. For more nostalgia visit the Severn Valley Railway, which run steam trains along the line from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster.

So if you hanker after a relaxing self-catering break in a most beautiful, untouched part of England, take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Shropshire today.

Situated on the banks of the River Severn, close to the beautiful historic Ironbridge, these three properties (Ref 27514, ref 27515 and ref 27516)benefit from the tranquillity of rural Shropshire, yet only a few minutes drive from all that Ironbridge and the gorge has to offer. Its difficult to believe this picturesque town was once the centre of the industrial world. Tourism is now the most precious resource. The many museums trace Ironbridge’s history and the ’Iron Bridge’ itself is a reminder of its importance. Ironbridge has a wonderful cluster of craft and souvenir shops, some great bars and restaurants, and no less than ten museums spread along the banks of the River Severn. For those wishing to explore beyond the beauty of Ironbridge you can step outside the gorge and get a taste of modern hubs to medieval market towns including, Bridgnorth, a picturesque historic town split in two but connected by a unique Victorian cliff railway which still runs today, Madeley which is just over a mile out of Ironbridge and has many listed buildings scattered throughout, one of the grandest being Madeley Court, medieval Much Wenlock and Newport with its bustling high street with interesting independent shops and plenty of places to eat and drink means visiting the town on a market day is a must. Telford is home to family attractions including Telford Town Park and Wonderland, delicious restaurants and the town centre. Wellington, whose market is one of the oldest in the country, is also worth a visit. Shropshire has an array of outdoor activities on offer from kayaking and canoeing to cycling, walking, gliding, golf, fishing and horse racing. The area is never short of places to visit from castles, abbeys, farms, museums and discovery centres to gardens, parks and historic houses. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

Stoke Court farm Barn is decorated and furnished to a high standard, whilst retaining many original features including beams and stable walls. It offers beautiful family accommodation with additional faciities for disabled guests, and makes an excellent holiday base for exploring the local area.

Nearby, historic Ludlow provides a wealth of interest for any visitor. John Betjeman described it as ‘the loveliest town in England’. Country Life also paid tribute, calling it ‘the most vibrant small town in the country’. It has lively markets, food fairs and speciality shops.

An unusual day out can be enjoyed at the Secret Hills Discovery Centre, which traces the geological history of the Shropshire Hills, and is housed in an unusual turf-roofed building designed to echo the hill forts found in the surrounding countryside. A simulated hot air balloon flight over the Wrekin in the north to the Stiperstones in the south forms the central attraction of the Centre. A good day out can also be had at the Acton Scott working farm and musuem. Leominster, Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth, Ironbridge and mid-Wales are all within easy driving distance.
