Walking in Shropshire

If you’re dusting off your hiking boots and looking for a walking holiday in the UK then look no further than Shropshire. With a quarter of the county designated as the Shropshire Hills area with outstanding natural beauty, the walking routes run through some of the most beautiful and varied landscapes you will find anywhere in Britain. A land with wild borderland hills traversed by Offa's Dyke to the rolling fields and deep gorges through which the Severn Way passes on its way to Bristol there’s an abundance of walks for the experienced to the rookie walker.

So if you’re planning a walking holiday in Shropshire why not stay in a pub? Pubs are a great alternative to hotels and traditional B&B’s giving visitors a special experience incomparable to your average hotel. Pubs don’t just offer a warm comfortable bed after a long day walking but also offers first class food and drink combined with the chance to socialise with locals and other walkers.

With all the modern features such as flat screen TV’s, Freeview, WiFi, comfortable bedding and tea and coffee making facilities you’ll be able to sit back and relax in your room after a long day out. In the evening choose from a range of home cooked dishes, from pub classics to meals with a twist. Meals are prepared by excellent chefs who use only the freshest locally sourced ingredients to give you a real taste of Shropshire. You'll be spoilt for choice!

In the evenings there’s plenty to keep you busy, with pubs offering a warm fire in the winter or a beer garden in the summer you can relax after dinner with a pint of real ale. Staying in a pub in Shropshire offers walkers the chance to find their own piece of paradise with many areas untouched and unspoilt.
