Food and drink in Shropshire
Shropshire has a good reputation as one of England’s best places for locally produced food and drink. During your stay at Shropshire vacation rentals, you’ll be able to taste fantastic culinary creations in pubs, sample some real ale and load up on local specialities at the weekly fresh produce markets.
While you can find great food and drink anywhere in Shropshire, the epicentre is the town of Ludlow. There you’ll find independent food stores selling organic food, meat, cheese and baked goods. A farmers' market is also held twice a month, where you can buy straight from the source. The market brings great crowds and is a great place to pick up some of the foodstuffs that make Shropshire famous, such as Whimberry pie and Shrewsbury biscuits.
Shropshire is also famous for being a leader in the real ale market. Leave the car at your Shropshire vacation homes and take a tour to sample some great local beer varieties. Some of the best are produced by one of the county’s oldest institutions – The Three Tuns Inn – which has supplied Shropshire with ale since 1642.
History, fun and great natural views are just three of the delights that guests at Shropshire vacation rentals can look forward to enjoying during their stays.
Some of the best views in the region can be found at Shropshire Hills, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Beauty stretching to the border of Wales. Go for a long walk or drive to marvel at views that stretch as far as the eye can see. This area also has a number of key attractions within its borders. There are four rivers nearby: the Clun, Cound Brook, Teme and Rea. Why not take a rental boat out on the water on a warm summer afternoon?
The Shropshire Hills also feature the town of Ludlow, which has been described as one of the loveliest settlements in the country. Here you’ll find the famous 11th-century Ludlow Castle, a large castle which remains in remarkably good condition despite being abandoned in the late 1600s.
Stand at the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution by visiting Ironbridge Gorge, a renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site. The area includes ten museums in addition to the world-famous Iron Bridge, which was built in 1779 and kickstarted a revolution that transformed the world. This is a terrific place for the whole family, with interactive and educational museums including a recreated Victorian town – where visitors can see what life used to be like more than 100 years ago – and a science museum where you can test your skills as an industrial worker.
Fun with the kids in Shropshire
Shropshire vacation homes also offer plenty by way of entertainment for children. Younger children will love the magical world of Adventureland, which is located in Telford. Fairytale characters, rides and crazy golf, plus the year-round Winter Wonderland Christmas Village, are all part of the fun.
Also in Telford is Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom, where children can get up close to all their favourite animals, including baby chicks, lambs, foxes, deer and more. The highlight is the Meerkat Experience, where you can actually feed meerkats – just one of many unique experiences that will live long in the memory after you have left Shropshire vacation rentals.
