There's no doubt that Shropshire is a very special place. Offering up a heady combination of bustling, historic towns and naturally beautiful landscapes, it really is an ideal holiday destination. But when you're planning a trip, choosing your destination is only half the battle. The secret to the getaway of a lifetime lies in choosing the perfect hotel. Fortunately, in Shropshire there are plenty to choose from!
There are some places around the world that are suited to large, all-in-one, resort type hotels. Shropshire is not one of them! The pace of life here is slow, the people are friendly and the atmosphere is peaceful. To get the most from this stunning county, it makes sense to make your stay an intimate one, and that means choosing a boutique hotel.
The term 'Boutique Hotel' is a fairly recent one, but what it describes has been around for a long time, and with good reason. Boutique hotels are simply small, typically having fewer than a hundred rooms.
Sometimes holidaymakers are put off the idea of checking into smaller hotels because they worry about a lack of facilities. However, hotels in Shropshire are proof that this is simply not the case.
Haughton Hall in Shufnal is the perfect example of a boutique hotel that ticks all the boxes. Centred around a gorgeous Georgian building, the hotel boasts an indoor pool, fitness centre and tennis court. All the while, it manages to maintain an intimate feel, with guests enjoying top-level service.
Another advantage to smaller hotels is that they are less restricted by space. Whereas larger hotels can only pop up where there's the space to house them, boutique hotels are often established right in the heart of towns and cities.
In the historic market town of Shrewsbury, this is precisely the case. Booking yourself into a centrally located boutique hotel, you'll have easy access to all of the town's magical sights. From the high street's medieval architecture to the Abbey on the town's edge, the town has so much to offer. Choosing the right hotel or guesthouse can make all the difference.
