Shropshire is a county right on the border of Wales and it consists of rolling hills and valleys to the south and lush plains in the north. It is known as the birthplace of industry and has a fine network of canals and railway lines. Shropshire Holiday Cottages provide a great base from which to go out and explore this wonderful region, which today is a haven for the holiday-maker seeking some peace, quiet and tranquillity.
The cottages can be found in fantastic locations and the surroundings are picturesque. You can stay in the countryside or in an unspoilt village with quaint pubs and shops selling local produce. The cottages can sleep from two to six people and are perfect for a romantic break or a traditional family holiday. Some have a hot tub and a private garden. Shropshire Holiday Cottages are comfortable and luxurious. They have top quality soft furnishings and all the conveniences of modern living.
Although the cottage has everything you need to have a fantastic holiday, you may be tempted to go out and enjoy the sights and the activities that Shropshire has to offer. Offa’s Dyke roughly marks the boarder between England and Wales and is a splendid long distance walk. The Shropshire countryside has many footpaths and bridleways that are excellent for shorter walks, cycling and horse riding.
You can hire a canal boat for the day and spend your time meandering along and watching the gorgeous countryside and beautiful wildlife. A visit to Shrewsbury can be recommended and this Tudor market town has over six hundred listed buildings. It is also the birthplace of Charles Dickens and there is a fantastic statue of him in the town.
Shropshire Holiday Cottages are available to rent for a long weekend or for a couple of weeks. They are self catering so you are not tied to any set meal times. You are free to come and go as you please. After a day out sightseeing you can stretch out on the sofa and have a relaxing glass of wine.
Watch television or read a book and think about what you are doing in the evening. You may decide to eat out and Ludlow is the ideal place for this as it has a couple of Michelin starred restaurants. This is a holiday made for luxury and relaxation.
