Make a holiday rental cottage or property in Shropshire your home away from home

The county of Shropshire marks much of the boundary between England and Wales, containing both the ancient market towns of rural England and some of the dramatic hill scenery associated with eastern Wales. There is a Shropshire holiday to suit all tastes and pockets, from taking a cosy Shropshire cottage to explore the wealth of country walking opportunities to renting a luxurious property to play a selection of Shropshire golf courses or investigate the famous attractions which adorn the region.

Things to do on holiday in Shropshire

There is a disproportionately large number of important historical monuments throughout Shropshire which warrant visiting whilst on a Shropshire holiday. Along the river valleys and escarpments which scar the landscape sturdy castles, picturesque churches ancient hill forts draw visitors from many miles, but there are a few sites which simply cannot be missed. Shropshire’s most famous monument, The Iron Bridge in Ironbridge is a delightful sight although you do not have to dedicate too much time to your visit! Snailbeach Mine, Wenlock Priory, Wroxeter Roman City, Ludlow Castle, Buildwas Abbey and Offer’s Dyke are just a selection of the magnificent attractions you can visit from a self catering Shropshire cottage.

There is no end of terrain for walking, cycling, riding and hiking in Shropshire. The Lake Vyrnwy Nature Reserve, Carding Mill Valley and Nescliffe Country Park offer some of the finest scenery, but there are endless options on and around the Wrekin too. Almost the best thing about walking holidays in Shropshire is the abundance of homely Shropshire public houses in which you can have a refreshing pint, some heart food and relax in front of an open wood fire. There is a great range of golf courses in Shropshire too, from the undulating courses of the Welsh Boarderland to the flat, open courses of eastern Shropshire.

The waterways of Shropshire offer plenty of entertainment options too. There are many stretches of river ideal for canoeing, sailing and rowing, giving you a new viewpoint of Shropshire, getting you close to nature and even closer to a state of pure relaxation! River fishing is also particularly good in Shropshire. For those with a need for adrenaline, there are plenty of opportunities to go mountain boarding, paragliding, rock climbing or even bungee jumping from a Shropshire property.

Places to visit on holiday in Shropshire

The towns of Shropshire hide many fine gems too. Shopping in Shrewsbury regularly excites visitors, whilst the annual Ludlow Arts Festival which is held in the spectacular Ludlow Castle attracts tourists in their droves. Many of the finest restaurants in Shropshire are found in the small towns of Much Wenlock, Telford and Wen, all of which have an undeniable charm.

Weather in Shropshire

Although the lowest temperature ever recorded in Britain (-26°C) was recorded in Newport, Shropshire is actually one of the mildest places in England. Average temperatures in summer remain around 17°C from the end of June until the end of October. Winters are much colder, and the wind in the hills can be biting, so if you are visiting a Shropshire holiday property in winter, it is advisable to pack a good jacket.

Travel to Shropshire

Shropshire’s central position in the UK makes it relatively easy to reach from anywhere in Great Britain. Although there are no major airports in Shropshire, the county is easily reached by road or rail from all directions.
