On the Map: Favourite Shropshire Retreats

2 March 2022

The comic writer P.G. Wodehouse once described Shropshire as “the nearest earthly place to paradise”. And once you’ve clapped eyes on the county’s legendary landscapes, you’re sure to agree.

Steeped in history, myth, and untold magic, you can set out on the King Arthur Trail, visit two UNESCO World Heritage sites, and hike through the majestic Shropshire Hills… and that’s just for starters!

Of course, any story-worthy holiday begins with a unique place to stay. So why not grab a cuppa and browse some of our favourite Shropshire retreats?
