It was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and yet today Shropshire is a rural idyll. Such contradictions make this county a fascinating blend of history and architecture combined with beautiful countryside.
Shropshire also boasts some of the finest medieval towns in England: not least Shrewsbury – home to the Shrewsbury Flower Show, the birthplace of Charles Darwin and set amidst glorious countryside with the Welsh Borders on its doorstep.
Then you have Ludlow, with its spectacular castle and world-famous annual arts festival. As well as Bridgnorth, another medieval settlement perched dramatically on a cliff overlooking the River Severn.
With a population of around 300,000, around a fifth of people living in Shropshire are thought to be retirees – hardly surprising when you consider what the area has to offer.
Ellesmere has been a popular haunt in this region for centuries. Its magnificent mere provides a great spot for fishing, gentle boating and gazing at the views and wildlife. There are also formal gardens and woodland walks with art and sculpture trails to enjoy.
Then you have Nantwich, a pretty commuter town bursting with cafes, restaurants and red-brick town houses – the first significant town on the River Weaver, with lush banks that make the perfect venue for an afternoon picnic.
If you can’t find a retirement property in the location you’re after, why not try searching surrounding counties.
