Thinking of a short break away? It’s fair to say that for most of us Shropshire isn’t the first destination that springs to mind, but it’s not been called one of England’s ‘best kept secrets’ for nothing, so we thought we’d take a closer look!
Picture unspoilt countryside, the beauty and tranquillity of the Shropshire Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, castles and canals, historic houses and beautiful gardens…
Visit the World Heritage Site, Ironbridge Gorge with its ten museums – a fascinating glimpse into the history of the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Take a breath-taking walk to the summit of The Wrekin (forged as legend would have it, when a tired giant dropped a shovel of earth on the way to Shrewsbury!), little wonder then it was the setting for Middle Earth in Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
We have a great Selection of B&Bs for your accommodation needs…
A warm welcome awaits at Rectory Farm B&B, a beautiful half-timbered house, combining unspoiled ancient charm with first class accommodation. Situated in the heart of the Shropshire highlands on the lower slopes of the famous Long Mynd, Rectory Farm commands spectacular views across the plain to the Wrekin. Also available is a Lawley View deluxe modern caravan for that rural escape.
So, on to the county town of Shrewsbury…located on the River Severn, this medieval market town with its red sandstone castle, is a shopper’s delight, especially if you are looking for something different.
We have an unusual yet delightful 4 Star graded B&B just 4 miles from Shrewsbury – The Old Station – a former rural Railway Station, built in 1847 and lovingly renovated to provide beautiful deluxe accommodation. The luxuriously appointed bedrooms, named after GWR Steam Engines, are finished with Victorian style decorated suites.
For all foodies, a visit to Ludlow is calling… this historic town has a reputation for its gourmet delights and with a great selection of restaurants and cafes you will be spoilt for choice! Other market towns worthy of a visit include Ellesmere, Market Drayton and Bishops Castle, all with their own unique character.
You can explore with confidence knowing that many of our B&Bs have been awarded the official ‘We’re Good to Go’ accreditation. You can check details of the stringent protocols in place on their websites.
Our B&Bs are open and look forward to welcoming their guests!
Here’s to making happier memories in 2021!
