Being the most sparsely populated county in England, the county of Shropshire compromises a total population of 454,900 and is the largest English inland county. This offers a wide range of possibilities and potential properties to choose from. Traditionally the county is divided into the flat, more populated north Shropshire region and the rural south Shropshire region named “Little Switzerland“ after its mountainous characteristics. more
House prices are on a national average level and stand currently at £201,931 and rental prices for 1-4 bedroom houses are £630 per month.
Shropshire is also well known for having the largest number of castles in England. This reflects its historic and picturesque landscape which offers an abundance of outdoor activities and traditional country pubs to visit throughout. Over half of Shropshires visitors spend time in the countryside rather than the surrounding cities.
The largest town in the Shropshire County is Telford with a population of 138,241 which makes up 30% of the total county population. Slightly smaller and more rural towns include Ludlow and Newport. Ludlow offers a waterside living and overlooks the river Theme. It is a typical English market town which combines medieval architecture with the beautiful countryside of the Welsh Marches on its doorstep.
