Do book a holiday cottage near Ironbridge in Telford for a family break. Most of us have heard about the tourist attraction and how good it is for children to visit.   Sometimes we just have to make a decision and book self catering accommodation for a weekend or mid-week break and just enjoy the experience. Children usually like staying in holiday cottages and it can be an exciting time for them. Parents prefer self-catering because it’s a relaxed way of taking a holiday and they can supply snacks and packed lunches to take out to avoid additional expenses.  Staying in self-contained private accommodation also eliminates the need to suppress children’s natural enthusiasm and resulting noise.

At Blists Hill the modern- day world is slowed to a more sedate pace as you step back 100 years in time. There is no better way to truly understand the Victorian era than to be a ‘real’ part of it. No more shiny plastic £5 notes for all currency is converted into pounds, shillings and pence. Everything here is Victorian, even the mini population, suited and booted in traditional costume. Visit the shops…there are no supermarkets to be found, all different household items are purchased from different stores. Note those weird and wonderful remedies from the quaint little chemist shop and pop your head around those specialist shops that are rarely seen these days, the drapers, ironmongers and haberdashery. If the children hate school, they might start to appreciate it a little more after a brief encounter with Miss Burke, the stern school teacher. Visit the olde worlde sweet shop for some liquorice laces, toffee cut with a hammer, humbugs and pear drops. In summer the kids can enjoy the fairground…no white- knuckle rides here! Step Inside those beautiful Victorian houses and take a fly on the wall look at how everyday living differs from today. To make the visit even more authentic you could hire some Victorian costumes and have a nostalgic family portrait taken.
