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).
This was our 3rd visit and we’ve already booked for our 4th. Rachel, Gerry and the boys are perfect hosts. The on site facilities are fantastic and there is always something to do in the surrounding areas. We always go home feeling so relaxed. Couldn’t recommended highly enough!
We chose the Stable because there was no room at the Inn!

Shropshire is one of our favorite counties and we loved our stay at The Granary. Rachel was very welcoming and all things relating to Covid had been thought about and suitable measures put in place. The swimming pool was fantastic and the booking scheme enabling use specifically for each cottage made it very private and enjoyable and also loungers/seating areas in the pool area were allocated for each cottage. The cake which was left for our arrival was delicious. We enjoyed the say so much that we booked to return the following month while we were still there. Need we say more!
