    “Awesome location and very well appointed town house over 3 floors.”

    Owner was very responsive to a few niggles that were quickly rectified and the provision of a few small breakfast items was very welcome - although we had brought our own :D ...

    Owner was very responsive to a few niggles that were quickly rectified and the provision of a few small breakfast items was very welcome - although we had brought our own :D The Saltbox location was ideal for exploring the upper old town and riverside, plus the little boutiquey shops were great. Parking at the long stay car park adjacent to Sainsbury's is best at £3 per day but be warned that unloading outside the property on a very narrow road had better be done quickly as quite a few cars use that route!

About the property

Resting in the town of Bridgnorth, only a short walk from many shops and pubs, is this fabulous mid-terrace cottage, The Saltbox.

Whether you have a couple’s retreat in mind, or are planning an adventure with family, this inviting abode offers three floors of excellence, ensuring a truly relaxing stay at any time of year.

Enter into the living/dining room, complete with homely furnishings including the wooden flooring and fabulous gas fire/stove, ideal for those chilly winter months, whilst a dining table is where all can gather for mealtimes.

Move into the kitchen, compact in size but offering all you could need for a self-catered break, including an gas oven and hob, microwave and fridge, so you can prepare home-cooked meals when you’re not dining at a fine Bridgnorth restaurant.

The first floor hosts a double bedroom and a delightful bathroom, so you can get ready for the day in style.

The second floor is equally as desirable presenting a family room with a super king sized bed leading onto a single bedroom/dressing room, perfect for accommodating families.

Stroll the quaint streets of Bridgnorth, popping in and out of the independent stores in search for a bargain, before stopping off at a pub or restaurant to quench your thirst and sample a delicious meal.

Stroll towards the River Severn, just a minute’s walk away, where you can discover the striking Lavington’s Hole or take a scenic ride up the clifftops on the historical Bridgnorth Cliff Railway.

History buffs will enjoy visiting the 16th century Elizabethan manor, Upton Cresset Hall or the remains of Bridgnorth Castle, a 12th century structure that was demolished upon Oliver Cromwell’s orders.

Set in a fantastic location that allows visitors to immerse themselves in centuries worth of history, The Saltbox also makes the ultimate base for exploring surrounding towns and countryside in Shropshire.

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.
