The Shropshire Hills, in the English county of Shropshire, is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is located in the south of the county, extending to its border with Wales. Traditional market towns sit comfortably amongst rolling hills and valleys. There is an abundance of real food and real ales, entertaining festivals, independent shops and eateries and plenty of great walks.
If food is your thing then head for Ludlow with its numerous delis, restaurants, cafes and food markets, all serving quality local food and not forgetting the famous Ludlow Food Festival. Real ales fans should head to towards Bishops Castle with several micro breweries, including the famous Three Tuns. For walkers Church Stretton and Craven Arms provide a genuine welcome and a great start to the Shropshire Hills. Visit Much Wenlock and the museum to learn about the town’s history and sporting heritage, particularly the Olympic Games.
