Holiday at Home in Shropshire

Holiday at Home in Shropshire If you're looking to holiday at home this year and beat the credit crunch then look no further than Shropshire.

Still unspoilt and with plenty of space to rest and relax and enjoy the Shropshire countryside, why not travel the road less travelled and come and enjoy the Shropshire air.

With the purse strings firmly pulled, holidays at home in the UK are more popular than ever and if you haven't considered a summer holiday or short break in Shropshire then now is the time to do so.

You won't find the crowds in Shropshire just award winning, friendly accommodation and attractions and inspirational countryside (everywhere!).

Afterall, this year is a big year for Shropshire with the county celebrating not one but four anniversaries. 200 years ago, Shrewsbury celebrated the birth of Charles Darwin, Much Wenlock celebrated the birth of Dr William Penny Brookes founder of the modern Olympics and 300 years ago Ironbridge became the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.
