Relax in Shropshire: take time to unwind in Shropshire’s tranquil surroundings

Everyone’s idea of relaxation is different. Luckily for visitors to Shropshire, we have infinite ways for you to relax in our tranquil county. Shropshire’s majestic hills provide many routes to relaxation. Their unchanging, solid presence is calming, from the mighty ridge of the Long Mynd (mountain in Welsh) to the fresh Alpine feel of the Stretton Hills. For many Salopians the sight of The Wrekin after a long journey is a comforting sign of home. Walk the hills of Shropshire, cycle them, wander or paddle in their valleys, ride a horse over heather-topped plateaus. Or simply relax and rest in their peaceful vicinity. Your style of Shropshire relaxation might take the form of nourishment: good food and wine or real ale. Whether alone or with loved ones, Shropshire’s welcoming restaurants, pubs and bars are certain to have the perfect table, cosy nook or fireside chair to let you relax. Or how about taking your time over afternoon tea or Shropshire cream tea? Let one of Shropshire’s lovely cafés or tea rooms serve you homemade cake and treats while you relax with friends. Good sleep, of course, is vital to a relaxing break. Shropshire has many luxurious hotels, B&Bs and cottages in which you can relax alone or with family and friends. Try a Shropshire rural retreat for the ultimate escape from everyday life. Spa bunnies will find gorgeous spa venues in Shropshire to nurture both body and spirit. Book yourself into a Shropshire day spa or spa hotel and, for a few hours, leave the world behind. Enjoy massage treatments, beauty treatments or just a splash in the pool. You can relax knowing you’ll emerge afterwards not to a busy metropolis but tranquil, beautiful Shropshire. Visit Shropshire and let the feeling of relaxation begin!
