Shropshire Way accommodation

The Shropshire Way as we list it is the original 139-mile circular route with the option of a shorter route. There is also an option of a Northern Extension. The shorter circular route takes the more direct 13 mile route from Bridges to Craven arms, bypassing Bishops Castle and Clun, making this shorter circular walk 117 miles long in total. If walking just the circular walk, it makes sense for most people to start/finish the walk at Shrewsbury, as there are more travel options.

IMPORTANT. The route was changed to consist of 27 interlinked paths which formed circular walks and connecting paths, all in Shropshire.
The Shropshire Way has recently been changed again to form two Loops, a North Loop and a South Loop. Our information is therefore out of date in some areas. please see the Shropshire Way Association for the latest version of the Way.
For more information on the Shropshire Way refer to the Shropshire Way Website Links below.

Notes on Shropshire Way Accommodation

Most of the Shropshire Way accommodation on our pages is on or very close to the path. For accommodation further afield we have tried to give distances from the Shropshire Way. We have split accommodation into Hotels & Inns and Bed & Breakfast. While we realise many guest houses are as good as some hotel accommodation, in order to avoid confusion we have opted for the simpler option.
We are always looking to improve our Shropshire Way accommodation listing, and always welcome Shropshire Way accommodation updates and additions.

Shropshire Way Restaurants and Pubs

We have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants along the Shropshire Way, especially regarding whether pubs serve real ale and/or food. But restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.
