The property

This delightful cottage was originally three 19th century brick-built cottages located in a small cul-de-sac in the village of Coalbrookdale, next to Ironbridge in Shropshire. This character cottage in Coalbrookdale makes a perfect family holiday home within the beautiful Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site, close to the River Severn. At this Coalbrookdale cottage there is a traditional cosy atmosphere with three comfortable bedrooms, one with en-suite facilities. The contemporary fixtures and fittings combine with exposed beams and a large inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove, which create a welcoming atmosphere in the sitting room. There is an attractive south facing front patio garden at this Shropshire cottage, ideal for enjoying a cold drink on a summer's evening. The historic village of Coalbrookdale is part of the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge and is home to a fine selection of shops, cafes and pubs. Ironbridge is a few minutes' walk away, where you can discover the world's first iron-built bridge and the Heritage Site's 10 museums as well as the wonderful Blists Hill Victorian Town.

    • “Wonderful”

    • “Returned a week ago from a wonderful visit to Brook Cottage, lovely cottage and Jayne and Scott were two really nice people. The cottage was warm and comfortable with a spacious kitchen and separate dining room. Bathroom was beautiful, and bedrooms well we all said that we have never slept so well. Beds were superb in fact we have been trying to buy a couple for home.The cottage is just five minutes walk from Ironbridge and although the village centre is short on food shops just across the road from Brook Cottage is the Coop very well hidden in a listed building. Staff were very friendly. The area around the village is full of interesting places to visit, all within a very short distance. If you are a keen walker you can see them on foot. We could not visit all the museums so we will be returning next year. Go and visit Blist Hill Victorian Town such a lovely way to spend a day and great fun. All in all I recommend both Brook cottage and Ironbridge as the perfect place to holiday.”

    • “We were greeted warmly, the cottage was immaculate and perfect for our dog, with the gated area to run around in. The delicatessen next door sold delicious food, just right to treat yourself on arrival. The location for us was spot on - we took our two children and one set of grandparents to Blists Hill Victorian Town on the Saturday, which was well worth the visit - for the chips alone! The actors in costume were amazing, some refusing to come out of character, and the sing along in the pub was hilarious! The Sunday we'd booked the air display at RaF Cosford, and this meant we were only 20 minutes away. Perfect, no more queues!”

    • “We arrived at Brook Cottage to be met by the owner Jayne who showed us around and welcomed us. Outside area was a suntrap and great for sitting with a glass of wine after a busy day. Or you can nip next door to Deli-Dale for a coffee. The living room was very cosy and I can imagine it in winter with the woodburning stove alight. We travelled with teenagers and my 84 year old dad who loved family get togethers around the big dining table - much hilarity ensued when we played 'who wants to be a millionaire'. Kitchen was well equipped for most purposes. Beds were very comfortable and everyone slept very well. Big selling point of Brook Cottage is its location - 5 minute walk to the Iron Bridge and within 5 minutes drive of all Ironbridge museums (or use the park and ride). Also, within 20 miles or so of Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Bridgnorth and lots of other places worth visiting. We had a Tesco delivery too which ensured the wine kept flowing, although their is a Co-op on the doorstep. Big plus for dog owners is Dale End Park less than 2 minutes walk which was a delightful place for early morning walks.”

    • “We enjoyed a short break here with my in-laws and our 2 dogs. It is a comfortable, pretty cottage, with a helpful owner. Deli next door is very friendly. Handy for Ironbridge museums. Beware the staircase is very narrow and difficult for someone less mobile to navigate, but there is a single room downstairs.”
