If you're thinking of a log cabin holiday in Shropshire then there cannot be any other words that conjure up the feel and the essence of Shropshire as much as this famous poem does.
“Into my heart an air that kills, From yon far country blows, What are those blue remembered hills, What spires, what farms are those?
That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went And cannot come again.”
― A.E. Housman, A Shropshire Lad
Shropshire truly is a land of soft countryside, rolling fields, gently sloping hills and quaint old churches. An unspoilt gem found on the fringes of the West Midlands, many would not believe that such a pretty and poignant place could be found so close to the urban metropolis.
Bring into the picture the chance to stay in a log cabin and you find yourself with a recipe for endless delight. Shropshire has many hidden treasure tucked away, just waiting for you to discover. By starting the day fresh from the confines of your bed, having slept like a proverbial log in your wooden lodge, there is much to explore.
So what does Shropshire have going for it? A lot. Top of the agenda has to be Ironbridge with its infamous bridge. Walking across it you will have superb views of the little town of the same name, which is full of pretty cottages and houses, regal Ironmaster’s former abodes as well as the stunning River Severn which meanders past the shops, craft centres and museums.

You also have the towns of Ludlow and Shrewsbury on your doorstep; Ludlow is a restauranteurs paradise whilst Shrewsbury has a special mix of quaint local shops mixed in with some of the larger stores.
Rays Farm is a great place for the whole family; spend time within a farm environment tucked away amidst some of the best Shropshire countryside with meandering paths that can be walked by everyone. Also a great place for a picnic or a visit to the craft shop or café.
Shropshire truly is a gem of a place and that fact that it is relatively undiscovered means that you will not find it overburdened by too many tourists visiting.
Treat yourself to an idyllic holiday in a log cabin in the beautiful Shropshire Hills.
