Shropshire

A Shropshire holiday cottage is a lovely way to enjoy this beautiful part of England. As well as its 32 castles, grand stately homes such as Attingham Park near Shrewsbury, the "finest view in England" from Bridgnorth (according to Charles 1st) and the 16-mile Severn Valley Railway, Shropshire is also lesser-known to visitors as the home to the birthplace of the mythical pair, King Arthur and Guinevere or and for the glacial lakes of Ellesmere. It's a county of beautiful half-timbered homes such as Ludlow with its impressive Tudor shops and historic castle.

Shropshire offers more than its fair share of picturesque old-fashioned market towns; for example Church Stretton, (also known as Little Switzerland), Ludlow, Wroxeter and Oswestry. From the medieval town of Shrewsbury (birthplace of Charles Darwin), the Victorian industrial museums at Ironbridge, the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, to the contemporary international Story-telling Festival, "Tales From the Edge" in Much Wenlock. Both Ludlow and Much Wenlock (another birthplace, this time for the modern Olympics) boast two Michelin-starred restaurants. From the Christmas Mistletoe Festival in Tenbury Wells in the south of the County to towpath walks along the Grand Union Canal at Market Drayton in the North, Shropshire, as a self-catering holiday destination seems to have it all.
