Shropshire as a rural retreat: plan your hideaway holiday here

Shropshire is one of Great Britain’s last rural idylls – a perfect retreat from a busy life in the modern world. In many parts of the county our landscape is sweeping, green and timeless. Much of south Shropshire is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Feel your shoulders dropping and your everyday cares drift away as you admire Shropshire’s hills, ancient and steadfast. Stay in a Shropshire shepherd’s hut, log cabin, glamping destination or bunkhouse and immerse yourself in true rural beauty. You’ll find sights and wonders in Shropshire that you may never have seen before. Visit the mysterious stone circle of Mitchell’s Fold on Stapeley Hill. Explore the meres and mosses of north Shropshire. On the atmospheric plateau of the Long Mynd you might encounter wild ponies, grazing in the heathland. Discover exquisite churches and chapels, far away from or disproportionate in size to the tiny villages they now serve. Look for castles and castle ruins, recalling Shropshire’s border legacy and ancient feuds with Wales. Quiet and beautiful, Shropshire is an ideal honeymoon destination. Escape to a Shropshire cottage or country hotel, just you and your new husband or wife. Dine in a cosy pub. Go stargazing in the hills. Visit a romantic stately home and wander in its luscious gardens. Walk hand in hand for miles without encountering another human being. Perhaps you’d like to hire bikes or even a tandem, and explore the Severn Gorge on two wheels. Whatever your plans for your English honeymoon, rural Shropshire is the perfect place to start married life, far from the cares of the everyday world. Are you ready for your rural retreat in beautiful Shropshire?
