Along the upper reaches of the River Severn and the borders between England and Wales, the countryside of Shropshire shelters some of the most beautiful landscapes and unspoilt towns that you can imagine.
The recently refurbished 3 star Buckatree Hotel is ideally located in The Wrekin, close to Telford. The comfortable country house has its own mature gardens and a private lake, offering a relaxing retreat to unwind after our days out. All of the en-suite bedrooms feature a flat screen TV, iron and ironing board and tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel has a lift.
Monday From your front door to the waiting Club Class coach for the drive to Shropshire where we arrive late afternoon. We enjoy a welcome tea or coffee and biscuits whilst our luggage is being taken to our rooms which will be followed by time to relax and dinner. During our stay we enjoy two nights of entertainment.
Tuesday This morning we enjoy a drive to Shrewsbury where we are joined by a local knowledgeable guide. We enjoy a walking tour of the town before having free time for exploration and to obtain lunch. This afternoon we have a relaxing cruise on the River Severn followed by more time at leisure before we make our way back to the hotel with time to relax before dinner.
Wednesday After breakfast we visit Attingham Park. This stunning stately home was built in 1785 and was in continuous ownership by the same family for 160 years. After plenty of time to look around we make our way to Ludlow where we have time for lunch and exploration.
Thursday This morning we head south to Bridgnorth where we join the Severn Valley Railway for a delightful ride along the beautiful Severn Valley, passing through lovingly restored stations on our way to Kidderminster. Upon arrival we join the coach as we drive towards the impressive Ironbridge Gorge, where the world’s first iron bridge forms the centre of this World Heritage Site. This afternoon we arrive at the Blists Hill Victorian Museum where we can explore the site with its many fascinating attractions. After a good stay we make our way back to the hotel for our final evening’s dinner.
Friday We bid farewell to our hosts and make our way home. Arriving in our home areas mid afternoon, we are greeted by our awaiting taxis after a memorable break.
