A typical UK holiday - Shropshire in the rain...


Beautiful scenery, lots to do and great fun. What wasn’t there to like about our holiday in Shropshire? Oh yes, the rain.

But let’s go back to the start. Why did I pick Shropshire for a family break? Well, I had wanted to visit Ironbridge, the famous world heritage site, for several years and planned to do so at the end of our five-day break. We began instead in the middle of the Shropshire hills, near the small market town of Church Stretton. The landscape truly is gorgeous, and on our first day, the rain actually held off. This meant we were able to walk along the River Mynd and take in the magnificent scenery. I really was overwhelmed by the beauty of the area. Within the UK, only Scotland comes near it, in my (humble) opinion.

We stayed in the kind of place which parents dream of. Mynd House is a bed and breakfast with a top floor that’s absolutely perfect for families. It consists of two delightful, interconnecting rooms (I love my 10- and 7-year old, but prefer not to share a bedroom with them) and a bathroom with its own Jacuzzi.
