Shropshire’s reputation as one of the country’s most peaceful regions, means it’s the ideal place to get some well-deserved time out. Book a holiday cottage in Shropshire, and find out what has been drawing those in need of a relaxing break here, ever since Roman times.
Although sleepy now, Shropshire has been home to its fair share of border conflicts over the centuries, which means it is brimming with castles, hill forts and history. A Shropshire holiday cottage gives you access to a whole selection of historic days out – from the 13th Century English Heritage gem of Stokesay Castle, to the medieval county town of Shrewsbury. Fans of more recent history will love immersing themselves in the sounds, sights and even smells of Blists Hill Victorian Town.
If all that is just a bit too exciting, then perhaps just enjoy a gentle wander by the River Severn will be enough.
