ABTA, the leading association of travel agents and tour operators, have named Shropshire in its list of top 10 global holiday destinations to watch in 2024.

As the only UK location to be featured – we’re thrilled that our beautiful county has been recognised on a global scale. In 2022, almost 1.5 million people spent one night or more here in Shropshire, and we’re delighted to have hosted some of these across our collection of properties.

Described as a ‘rural gem’, Shropshire has everything from UNESCO World Heritage Sites, areas of outstanding natural beauty, and the best-preserved steam train network in England.

Visit Ironbridge Gorge, the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, or ramble through the beautiful Shropshire hills, enjoying the V-shaped valleys and countryside as you go.

With views of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Marrington Escapes makes the perfect base for those wanting to explore somewhere new. We’re also just a short drive away from Bishop’s Castle, one of the towns mentioned by ABTA.
