4 daysThe lovely county of Shropshire must surely be one of England's secret gems.Enjoying some of the country's finest unspoilt scenery, these tranquil borderlands of meadows, wooded hillsides, lakes and half-timbered villages are a delight to explore.
The highlight of your stay will be Sunday evening's entertainment which starts in the bar prior to dinner, Patsy, Eddie and Saffy mingle with you with Sassy trying to take control of the situation as Patsy & Eddie are generally making a nuisance of themselves! The actresses continue in the same manner throughout the evening discarding their pinnies and recreating some of the iconic sketches from the series of the popular Absolutely Fabulous. Three of the best actresses in the land give a performance that will not be forgotten, adult humour is involved.
We've also added a visit to the Ironbridge Gorge Museum to top-off this wonderfully different short break.
