Shropshire Staycations – short breaks with long memories
We want to encourage more people to take a staycation in one of the UK’s most beautiful little-known counties, Secret Shropshire! We have put together a range of special offers and some exciting itineraries to help people get the most out of their stay. Many people are unaware of the amazing attractions we have in Shropshire with hills and countryside linked by the rivers, canals and meres. Visitors can explore market towns like Ludlow and Shrewsbury, English Heritage and National Trust sites, take a trip back in time on the Severn Valley Heritage Railway and of course visit Ironbridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.
The Short Break with Long Memories itineraries have been designed to appeal to couples, small groups of friends and families with children who want to get out and about and discover new things to see and do and then return to the tranquillity of Hadley Park House where they will be well looked after.
To make your life easier, we have hand-picked some of the most interesting places, many of them FREE for you to visit within a 35-mile radius of the hotel.
