South Shropshire is ideal walking and cycling country with routes to suit all levels of ability. We are surrounded by the South Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which is criss-crossed with rights of way. Wenlock Edge is immediately to our north and Brown Clee Hill (Shropshire's highest hill) to southeast and are easily reached by foot from Coseley House.
The Shropshire tourism sites shropshirewalkingk and shropshirecycling have lots of ideas for where to go. We can arrange drop-offs and pick-ups to let you explore more of the South Shropshire countryside. Small shuttle buses provide a service to much of the Shropshire Hills from spring to autumn: shropshirehillsshuttles gives details of the routes to the Secret Hills, the Long Mynd and Stipperstones.
We have a heated drying room for wet clothes and muddy boots, and covered secure overnight cycle storage.
We will do all we can to assist in your enjoyment of your Shropshire holiday, packed lunches, early breakfasts and transport can be arranged.
Don't forget after a hard day's walking or cycling, you can relax all those aching muscles with a swim in our heated indoor pool.
The pool is integral with the house for easy access and has a large glazed telescopic enclosure to keep the elements at bay, which can be opened to enjoy the Shropshire air and views when the sun shines. On a cold day the enclosure can be warmed with a powerful space heater.
The swimming area is 8.5m x 4m which is large enough to swim in and with a depth of 1.4m most people can readily stand. Water is permanently circulated through a sand filter to ensure its cleanliness and is heated in cooler weather.
South Shropshire remains remarkably undiscovered and unchanged, which makes it a wonderful relaxing and interesting place for visitors. There are many interesting things to do and places to visit and we are centrally located for them. Some of our favourites which are all less than an hour from Coseley House are:
Church Stretton is at the foot of the Stretton Hills and has many interesting small family run shops, cafes and pubs.
Ludlow has been described as “the most perfect town in England” by John Betjeman. It is a thriving market town with historic castle, church and timber buildings. Ludlow has gained a reputation for fine food and has several festivals during the year to celebrate its history and the food of South Shropshire.
Much Wenlock is a beautiful black and white Shropshire town, which has some notoriety as the birthplace of the modern Olympics. The ruins of Wenlock Priory and the half-timbered guildhall are well worth a visit.
Bridgnorth has a low town and a high town linked by a functioning Victorian funicular. The low town is on the banks of the River Severn and used to be a thriving port. The high town held the castle, churches and mansions. Bridgnorth is also the start of the Severn Valley Steam Railway.
Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire and has a lot to offer the visitor being a largely unspoilt medieval town with over 600 listed buildings and interesting little alleyways and streets such as Mardol, Dogpole and Wyle Cop.
South Shropshire and the surrounding area contains some excellent historic buildings and museums many of which relate to Ironbridge, the birthplace of the industrial revolution.
Ironbridge Gorge is a remarkable place to visit. A huge amount of early industry survives as furnaces, factories, workshops, canals and the settlements of Coalbrookdale, Ironbridge, Jackfield and Coalport. There are 10 museums to visit in the gorge.
Stokesay Castle is a remarkable fortified manor house which has hardly altered since the late 13th century.
Acton Scott Historic Working Farm Museum was conceived by Thomas Acton more than a generation ago to preserve traditonal farming techniques that might otherwise be lost to modern practices. It stocks many traditional breeds of animal and demonstrates rural crafts, whilst the land around is worked with heavy horses.
The Dudmaston Estate and Attingham Park are large Shropshire country estates run by the National Trust. The National Trust also looks after parts of Wenlock Edge and the Shropshire Hills around Carding Mill.
There are many other activities and places to visit. Shropshire Tourism provides information on much more.
