Coast and Spa

Ever fancied a two-destination holiday? We’ve got just the thing.

Stay beside the seaside at the Sea Shack, our beautiful two-bedroom chalet in Aberdovey, with breath-taking views that will stay with you forever. Walking along the beach, set in the heart of Snowdonia National Park is a wonderdul way to relax and take a break from everyday life. With quirky cafes, a choice of restaurants, a delicious ice-cream shop and a glorious golf course, Aberdovey is a fantastic place to start your holiday.

Follow your break at the coast with a stay at Burlton Cottages (just 65 miles away). Here you have full use of our indoor heated swimming pool and spa. There’s a hot tub, sauna, steam room and gym, the perfect place to spend some quality me-time. For the ultimate indulgence you can book a massage, facial, reflexology session or beauty treatment with Siam Harmony whilst you’re here. Burlton Cottages are ideally located close to Shrewsbury with lots of National Trust properties and other places of interest to visit nearby.

Fluffy towels and top quality bed linen are provided at each destination and dogs are welcome too!

Where first?

It doesn’t matter which destination you visit first. You can arrive and leave on any day of the week, with no minimum stay at both. 


Coast and Spa breaks are available between April and September. Just contact Rachel for more information and prices.

Wellness workshops and retreats

Burlton Cottages is the perfect venue for hosting a wellness, creative or physical workshop or retreat. The wonderful spacious Spa facility, outdoor space and airy cottages provide a unique rural setting to host your event.

Indoor space can be provided within one of the 4-5star gold awarded holiday cottages and there is plenty of space outside on our 500 acre arable farm, with a grassed area near to the Spa.

We can facilitate day workshops, courses or overnight residential retreats and tailor the package for your needs.

The beds can be twin or king/super king sized . Guests will be cosy as there is underfloor heating throughout.

A neighbouring cottage can also be utilised to sleep another 4 guests, this is just 50 metres away from our own collection. For best rates, and to include use of the Spa for guests staying in the neighbouring property, please book direct through Burlton Cottages.

Everyone can dine together in one of the cottages.

Super-fast secure WiFi is available throughout the cottages and Spa.

Why Burlton Cottages is the perfect event venue for workshops and retreats

Throughout your workshop or retreat the onsite owner, Rachel, will be available to ensure the smooth running of your event.

Relax and unwind

With the Spa open from 8am until 8pm daily, guests have the opportunity for much needed relaxation. Everyone has complimentary use of the indoor heated swimming pool (30 degrees), steam room, sauna, jacuzzi, ergonomic relaxation beds, rain shower and four changing rooms. So you can relax with your favourite book, take time to think and recharge, or if you’re feeling energetic make use of the mirrored gym with four cardiovascular machines.

In the Spa itself we have a wonderful massage and beauty therapy team, Siam Harmony. There is a selection of indulgent, bespoke treatments and therapies available to guests (please book in advance). 

Accessibility-friendly changing rooms and toilets are available at the Spa. 

Get back to nature

The farm provides a wonderful backdrop and access to the Shropshire countryside. Just stop and take in the beautiful landscape around us whilst you are here. Send your senses into overdrive – hug the oak trees, taste the crops, listen to the barn owls and woodpeckers or watch the lapwings in flight. There’s an abundance of nature to soak up around us.

At the bottom of the farmyard, there’s an acre of grassland. In the summer months it has a three hole Pitch and Putt you can play. Or you can just use the space to escape for some reflective time.

Food and drink

We have recommended catering partners, or you can bring your own food. A barbecue and fire bowl can be provided on request.


Charity Farm is eco-friendly using solar panels for electricity, sustainable boiler for heating and our arable farm is farmed sensitively to protect and nurture our environment.

Whatever your course, workshop or retreat the idyllic setting of Burlton Cottages and Spa (alongside the care that will be taken to look after you) will ensure a successful event.
