Shropshire is the spot for self-catering holidaymakers wanting to watch their spending this summer, according to a survey.
The county, which boasts Shrewsbury and market towns among its tourist attractions, is the most-affordable destination for a one-week holiday rental from June to August 2014, a TripAdvisor survey shows.
Including two-bedroom holiday rental accommodation, one dining-out meal and basic groceries, a Shropshire self-catering trip cost £566.
The next best-value destination was Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland (£568) followed by Lincolnshire (£569), Derbyshire (£570) and North Yorkshire (£627).
Most-expensive destinations in the survey were Cornwall (£854), Dorset (£834) and Devon (£826).
Taking just the accommodation into account, Dumfries and Galloway is the least-expensive destination, at £450. In contrast, the accommodation part of a self-catering week in Cornwall would set a family back
TripAdvisor said that the north of England and Scotland largely dominated the the most-affordable destination list, with the three most-expensive locations being in south west England.
