The property

Nestled on the banks of the River Severn in the market town of Bridgnorth, Shropshire, is this striking three-storey holiday home, 5 Riverside.

Boasting scenic views over the water, 5 Riverside is a delightful setting for a small group or two couples looking to explore this fabulous part of the West Midlands.

Stepping into the property, you're welcomed into the charming sitting room, traditionally decorated with a rustic woodburning stove, complimented by an exposed stone fire surround, inviting you to nestle into an armchair in front of the television for a cosy night in.

The open-plan kitchen/diner features a contemporary design, fit with a skylight window to welcome in the natural light, modern appliances and amply-equipped with all of the necessities required to rustle up some tasty treats for the group to enjoy gathered around the dining table.

Head outside to the terraced garden, providing a private and peaceful setting to spend quality time together, toasting a glass of fizz to a fantastic holiday.

As the day draws to a close, head back inside where you have the choice between two double bedrooms, both framing breath-taking views across the River Severn, and one of which is located on the second floor, where you can escape the excitement for a more intimate setting. Servicing the property is the modern family bathroom, tiled throughout and featuring a spacious walk-in shower where you can enjoy a rejuvenating rinse ahead of another day of adventure.

Take a break from doing the cooking for the evening and head into the centre of Bridgnorth where you'll be spoilt for choice with the vast selection of pubs and eateries, serving up delicious food to suit everybody's taste.

Traverse the nineteenth century funicular railway joining the High and Low Towns of Bridgnorth, divided by the River Severn, traveling up and down the steep sandstone cliff using the Bridgnorth Cliff Railway.

History buffs will be delighted by the wealth of heritage to be discovered in the town, exploring the Civil-aged tunnel dug deep into the sandstone at Lavington's Hole, or uncovering the remains of Bridgnorth Castle, founded in 1101 and later demolished upon the orders of Oliver Cromwell.

Hire a canoe and paddle downstream to the Georgian town of Bewdley, tackling the rapids at Trimpley en route, before indulging in a refreshing drink at The Courtyard, nestled on the banks of the river and boasting scenic views across the water, making a leisurely return journey on the steam-hauled Severn Valley Railway.

Within easy reach are the popular destinations of Ludlow, Shrewsbury and Iron Bridge, all worth a visit.

For an unforgettable holiday, choose 5 Riverside as a base that you'll be delighted to return to.

About the location

BRIDGNORTH

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.
