About the location

BILLINGSLEY

Bridgnorth 7 miles; Ludlow 16 miles.

A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.

The small village of Billingsley is surrounded by beautiful Shropshire countryside and is only seven miles from Bridgnorth. The area offers excellent walking and cycling routes, as well as boasting easy access to country parks, great houses, museums and picturesque Shropshire villages. Visitors can enjoy a trip to the town of Bridgnorth - winner of the 'Britain in Bloom' award - which is comprised of the High Town and the Low Town connected by winding streets and stairs. The bustling Saturday street market is an excellent way to explore the town or alternatively, it is possible to visit the impressive castle ruins and take a ride on the steep funicular railway. With easy access to The Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford, Ironbridge Gorge and the popular destinations of Shrewsbury and Ludlow, this is a wonderful spot for a family holiday.
