  • "Our holiday in Bridgnorth was made all the more special by our stay at 31 Riverside."

    From the moment we arrived we were all saying how amazing the cottage is, and before and afterwards communication with the owners was also excellent. Downstairs is small but functional, and well laid out. Nice welcome pack ! Outside there is a nice set of table and chairs where we managed to eat our breakfast every morning. Then there is the beautiful hot tub. This is set into a "cave" and in the same space you have dishwasher, washing machine, freezer and beer fridge. The first floor has a nice double bedroom and bathroom with shower. The steps to the top floor are narrow and steep, but for those who dare you reach a loft conversion with en-suite (toilet and sink; no shower). Bridgnorth is a very pretty, friendly and historic town, with lots to discover. Great for our dogs as lots of walks and most places are dog-friendly. Cottage very highly recommended.

  • "My wife and I have holidayed on numerous occasions in and around the Bridgnorth area as we have friends who live in Low Town."

    After looking through available lets in the town itself I came across 31 Riverside. The description sounded great and what sold it to my wife was the hot tub in the cave to the rear of the property. The thumbnails on the website indicated a cottage with quality furnishings and fabrics ...another must for us. On arrival we entered the cottage and before unloading our luggage did our customary lookabout.....and we were not disappointed in any way whatsoever. Everything we saw matched Sykes description. The welcome pack was a lovely touch with choccies on the bed, prosecco in the fridge and a fresh loaf with butter. Fresh flowers were also placed in the rooms. The kitchen had good quality kitchen ware. The beds were very comfy with big fluffy pillows and super quality bedding. The living room seating was of a very good quality and comfortable. Excellent shower on the first floor. In the cave was the hot tub which got a lot of use. :-) Also in the cave were more white goods ....everything one may need. Outside was a nice seating area......though in periods of no rain we would sit on the bench on the river bank savouring a glass of wine or 2.....very civilised. The cottage is sited 2 minutes from the fernicular railway if your legs won't make the Cartway or the flight of steps 50 yards away from the cottage. A train spotters paradise with the Severn Valley railway 10 minute walk and for the real ale enthusiast the Railwaymens arms on the platform is a delight. There is no Tescos or Morrisons if these are you favourites they are within driving distance. Beamans the butchers in High Town is a must. Parking is limited but Bernie and Jason the owners left us a parking permit, apparently the traffic enforcement officers are extremely hot on unauthorised parking. We passed on the cottage info to our friends who may be interested in staying. This is one of the nicest holiday lets we have stayed in......so nice we have booked next year as well.

    A wonderful little gem in the heart of Bridgnorth. Right on the rivers edge, walking distance to shops/pubs etc, very private rear terrace with a wonderful cave and hot tub. Exceptionally clean and very comfortable. Parking outside the cottage and a lovely welcome basket upon arrival. Couldn’t ask for anything more! Probably the only property in the UK with a hot tub in a cave! Great experience and well worth the money.

  • "The cottage is beautiful and the hot tub in the cave fabulous."

    It was the extra touches that made this cottage special - the dressing gowns & slippers, the white roses in our bedrooms and the sitting room; the welcome pack of essentials including a bottle of prosecco. The cottage overlooked the River Severn so we were concerned we may not be able to go. However, Bernie kept in contact with us and reassured us we would be OK. Did watch the river start to subside but then on the Sunday/Monday it was rising again. Bernie also arranged for an extra car permit for £8 as we came in two cars. On the Saturday night we ate in 'Peepo' which was very good value and on our last day we had breakfast in the 'Castle Tea Rooms' which again was very good value. We travelled a number of times on the Bridgnorth Cliff railway which was great fun & would recommend particularly if wearing high heels as the roads around High Town are quite hilly!

    Robes for the hot tub, luxury towels, perfect position, for walks and pubs, parking wasnt a problem either, plenty of spaces along the road near the cottage, perfect retreat for grown ups, i wouldnt take small children or someone with walking dificulty as the stairs are rather steep, it was a perfect little cottage for our weekend, will stay longer next time, so we can explore a little further

    Although a small property it is very comfortable, the hot tub was enjoyed by us, and it’s setting is very unique. The owners were welcoming and friendly, and left a quality welcome pack. We can recommend The Falcon Hotel for meals. The only drawback is no downstairs toilet, so if you are less mobile you may find climbing the steep stairs all the time difficult .

  • "We had a lovely week at 31 Riverside."

    The cottage is small but perfectly formed and has been really well thought out. We ended up spending a little more time in the cottage than perhaps we would have normally because of the weather and it never felt cramped. It is comfortable, cosy and well equipped, with the lovely touch of a little care package including chocolates and Prosecco on arrival. The real bonus is the hot tub in the cave / grotto in the garden - this really did add a touch of luxury to our stay and was a swell way to relax after a long walk. In terms of location, Bridgnorth is a great base to explore the beautiful Shropshire countryside while being a rather beautiful town in its own right. There are plenty of places to eat (don’t miss the food at the King’s Head) and drink (you’ll be made very welcome by the lovely staff at the Shakespeare) all within comfortable walking distance, especially if you take the short stroll from the cottage to the cliff railway. It is also a particularly dog friendly town and our little Whippet was fussed over, not to mention plied with plenty of treats, if we stayed still long enough! All in all, we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending a visit to Bridgnorth and a stay at 31 Riverside.

About the location


Much Wenlock 8 miles; Ironbridge 15 miles; Shrewsbury 20 miles; Ludlow 20 miles; Church Stretton 20 miles.

The market town of Bridgnorth lies in two very distinct halves - the High Town and the Low Town - separated by the red sandstone ridge on which the town is built. The two halves are connected by winding streets and flights of steps, or there is always the steep funicular railway, enabling the weary traveller to glimpse what Charles I called "the finest view in all my kingdom". A bustling Saturday street market provides an ample excuse to explore the town and examine the castle ruins, which lean at a greater angle than the Leaning Tower of Pisa! Flowing below is the River Severn, providing many pleasant riverside walks. The Severn Valley Railway runs between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster, and runs a variety of steam and diesel engines through picturesque country stations. In the areas surrounding Bridgnorth, there are a wealth of country parks, impressive houses, museums and picturesque Shropshire villages, as well as easy access to The Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford, and Ironbridge Gorge, with its 10 museums and striking landscape. The area offers excellent walking, and with the popular destinations of Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Church Stretton all within easy reach, it is ideal for a visit any time of the year.
