By Wyndham Vacation Rentals


With rolling hills, medieval towns and vintage railways, Shropshire is a quintessentially English destination. Whether you are planning a romantic minibreak in the picturesque town of Ludlow, or a walking holiday in the Shropshire Hills, a cottage with a private pool is the best way to experience this beautiful part of England.

Rural cottages with pools are a wonderful way of getting closer to the countryside, bringing nature right up to your doorstep. From your cottage base, roam the hills around Church Stretton, Craven Arms, or Bishop’s Castle, stopping off for a pint of locally brewed beer on your way. Each of these towns is set within the Shropshire Hills AONB, and there are many excellent walking and cycling routes which bypass local landmarks and friendly villages along the way.

The Severn Valley Railway will take you across the county in style, and you can hop on and off along seven different stops – plan to spend at least a few hours in the historic villages of Bridgnorth and Ironbridge, which have barely changed in the past 200 years.

Holiday cottages with pools near Oswestry are ideally located for day trips into Wales or historic tours of Oswestry Castle, which was once a focal point for the border disputes between the English and the Welsh.

Near Shrewsbury, cottages with swimming pools can take full advantage of both the quiet Shropshire countryside, and the bustle of this busy market town. Shrewsbury is the cultural centre of the county – it is home to more than 600 listed buildings, which give the town a real sense of olde worlde history. At the recently renovated Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery, you can learn all about the town’s heritage and its most celebrated son – Charles Darwin.

Whether you want to reconnect with the past or find a peaceful moment in the countryside, the English charm of Shropshire will exceed all your expectations.

  • Drury Lane Barn

    Ty Broughton, near Whitchurch

    Ref: RKK3

    Drury Lane Barn is a fine example of a detached, traditional barn that has been sympathetically converted by its present owners to a high specification, with modern conveniences added for ease of use - visitors can also enjoy sole use of an indoor heated swimming pool and tennis court during their stay. Set in a slightly elevated position away from main roads, and on the owners’ estate, there are far reaching views across open countryside and meadows - making this a truly peaceful setting. Drury Lane Barn is situated less than 5 miles from Whitchurch - a compact Shropshire town just inside Shropshire’s border with Wales. It is a town steeped in history with an array of beautiful buildings that house shops, pubs and some very notable restaurants. Built in Queen Anne style, the distinctive St Alkmund’s Church dominates the town, and the courtyard off the Bullring survives as the last remaining of several which existed until the 1950s. Close by are the villages of Hanmer and Malpas, with the City of Chester, Shrewsbury, and Llangollen with its river, canal, mountains and wonderful views of the Welsh countryside, all within easy access.
    The barn’s central position on the Welsh, Shropshire and Cheshire borders makes it a perfect holiday base for exploring the sights of the three counties. There are a number of National Trust properties within an hour’s drive, and golf, fishing and horse riding are all available locally. Shop and pub 2 miles.
