Shropshire must surely be one of England’s hidden gems lying on the border with Wales and set on a backcloth of patchwork fields, wooded valleys, picturesque rivers and rolling hills leading in to the Welsh Marches. Unspoilt countryside, lovely medieval towns and a remarkable heritage are all there to be enjoyed. From a country house hotel base, 'step back in time’ and catch a glimpse of England and Wales in times gone by.
As the largest county in England, Shropshire's landscape is so diverse that it is often described as five counties in one. Experience delights including the literally gorgeous Severn Gorge and the spectacular borderland where the mountains of Wales provide a perfect backdrop. Discover two World Heritage Sites with historical Ironbridge, a memorable canal cruise and train journey
