Stylishly well-appointed, characterful and intimate; three converted holiday cottages on a friendly, family-run private farming estate in the heart of the Shropshire countryside, just 20-minutes from the beautiful medieval county town of Shrewsbury. The onsite Spa and swimming pool are wonderful for that perfect relaxing break.
From the moment your first welcomed with complimentary home-made cake by Rachel and Gerry, the on-site owners, Burlton Cottages offer idyllic, unspoilt escapism - a perfect rural retreat. Open all year (arrive and leave on dates of your choice), bring the kids (cots, high chair and games available) and bring the dog (enjoy stunning country walks right from your door, with abundant wildlife every step of the way).
Burlton Cottages were superb in every way. We were fortunate enough to book all 3 cottages for members of our family to gather in a Covid safe way so as to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday.
The setting and the facilities could not have been better and were enhanced by lovely April weather.
Our hosts provided useful contact details for 2 small, local catering companies who supplied 2 lovely meals which we just had to heat up.
We will certainly return when we are able.
This is the second time we stayed at Burlton Cottages and the biggest compliment we can provide is that it’s a real home from home. Rachel and Gerry and their boys do everything they can to make the stay as stress free as possible and are great hosts. The facilities are superb - the pool was used every day and the addition of the spa on site is a real bonus. We will be returning for another lovely break very soon.
This was our second visit, delayed for a year because of COVID. Whilst not all spa facilities were open, the ones we usually use were. Keeping to COVID rules by staying local to that area, we found that we had the rest and the weather to have a truly relaxing time The pool booking system worked well. Sitting outside listening to wrens, robins and blackbirds felt that all was well with God’s Creation. We ate out at the Boathouse in Ellesmere(outside) and at the Burlton Inn. Our favourite frozen meal was the Lancashire hotpot. We will definitely return!
Adhering to the guidance of the Covid tiers I received a warm and friendly welcome, clear information about the facilities and the booking procedure to ensure privacy and indulgence.
I would love to visit again during the spring and summer months.
