Looking for a staycation with a difference? Consider Shrewsbury, Shropshire's county town with an idyllic location right on the River Severn and a town centre simply bursting with listed buildings. In fact, Shrewsbury is one of the best preserved medieval market towns in the UK, and, as the birthplace of Charles Darwin, has oodles of historical and cultural importance.
Our price guarantee means that you don't have to go searching for the best Shropshire cottages around. Speak to our friendly team, and we'll find the ideal holiday home for you.

As well as the endlessly photogenic medieval centre, Shrewsbury is surrounded by prime countryside. To the west lie the Welsh borders, while to the south sprawls the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with its miles of rolling hills and rippling rivers. For a quintessentially English stay, Shropshire is the perfect combination of countryside and culture.
