Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Shrewsbury

Castles, churches, medieval streets, parkland and river walks are all a stone's throw from Shrewsbury holiday cottages. This ancient market town lies on the banks of the River Severn in Shropshire and is well known as the birthplace of Charles Darwin. It is also famous for its flower displays, which fill the town with colour every spring. Shrewsbury's beautifully preserved medieval centre is home to more than 600 listed buildings, including fine examples of timber-framed architecture from the 15th and 16th centuries. Walk into the town centre from your holiday cottage in Shrewsbury and explore the tangle of narrow lanes and squares. You will notice narrow passages known as 'shuts', which pass through buildings from one street to another. Around every corner, you will find unique independent shops and restaurants. In the heart of the town, the Quarry is a 29-acre park where you can wander along the riverside with lovely views of the surrounding countryside
