Shropshire part of our trip?

Hi!

We came back from UK vacation a week a go. Already began to gather info for our next Summer. Among few possible destinations, a circular self driving tour: LHR - Waddesdon Manor - Shropshire ( day or two ) - Wales ( 8-10 days ) - Malverns/Cotswolds ( day or two ) - LHR, seems like a nicest one. We are a family ( 2+2 ), pretty much interested in gardens,parks, woodland walks, scenery, castles/stately homes. Timing: second half of July, beginning of August 2015.

I have been reading about Shropshire and it looks like Ludlow or Shrewsbury( one of them ) will be the town we would like to visit. Any suggestions for the rest of Shropshire part of the trip?

Any input is highly appreciated. Thank you.

Yuri.

<<What I understand is, we better do places in Eastern middle Wales from Shropshire. >> - If you want to stay in Premier Inns, there aren't many in this area - one at Oswestry, one in Shrewsbury and another labelled Shrewsbury North which is about 5 miles north of the town. Otherwise you're into north Wales or more into England. PI does offer reliability, but they aren't (yet) everywhere, so you may need to consider alternatives.

I think you have it when you say you need to put places on a map - by now from your various threads you've got lots of ideas - if you plot them on a map you'll probably be better able to see "clusters" and work out where you need to look for bases.
