The property

Boasting exceptional views across the historic rooftops of Bridgnorth, a bustling market town in Shropshire is The Postage Stamp.

Enjoying a seamless blend of character and contemporary, coupled with its great location, this holiday home is the perfect choice for a couple’s romantic retreat.

Enter into the mid-terrace abode and find a quaint open-plan living space, equipped with all the modern conveniences to enjoy a self-catering stay.

The sitting area is certain to invite you to rest those post-walk soles in front of the Smart TV, whilst the sleek fire offers a sense of comfort during the crisp winter evenings.

Joining this compact, yet quaint space is a fairy-light lit bar made for two, situated under the front window, where you can savour a glass of wine or enjoy cup of tea with a good book as you watch the world go by.

The kitchen is beautifully presented with an array of quality appliances, including a handy dishwasher and a coffee machine, perfect for that caffeine fix ahead of an action-packed day!

From here, discover the small rear garden, where table and chairs are awaiting you in the summer months to relish in alfresco dining, whilst enjoying the stunning views over the rooftops of Bridgnorth’s old town.

The elegant-style of the home is continued onto the first floor, where quality linens drape across a sumptuous double bed, framed by the original 400-year-old oak beams.

Concluding the first floor is the bathroom, boasting a lavish roll-top bath and a sleek walk-in shower, so that you can choose how best to prepare for each day.

On the second floor, just a few steps up from the bedroom, is your own luxurious dressing room, complete with full length mirror, vanity table and a large central ottoman, perfect for two to sit upon whilst getting ready.

The ottoman also converts into a full size single bed, if you need a third bed.

For the evenings where you do not feel like cooking, be spoilt for choice by the selection of eateries that await you in town, ranging from fine restaurants, cosy pubs and tasty takeaways, there is certainly something for all tastes here!

The town also plays host to an array of shops for browsing, as well as lots of great things to do including strolls along the banks of the River Severn and exploring the Bridgnorth Castle and Gardens.

Other local attractions include the local golf course, the Bridgnorth Cliff Railway and journeys along the Severn Valley Railway, taking you through some breath-taking sights in Shropshire.

Within the surrounding area, you will be delighted to find a superb collection of country parks and stately homes, including the National Trust owned Dudmaston Estate and Wightwick Manor and Gardens.

Avid ramblers can venture to the Shropshire Hills AONB to capture the picturesque, verdant landscape, whilst the likes of Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Church Stretton are perfect for more leisurely afternoons of exploring.

Bring your partner to The Postage Stamp for a relaxing getaway to Shropshire.

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.
