    “Tram Cottage is quirky, spotlessly clean and warm with the added benefits of a hot tub and a wood burning stove - but we didn't use either of these.”

    We have a wood burner at home and the cottage was warm enough for us without using the fire. I am hampered by a hip repair so didn't feel confident enough to climb in and out of the hot tub, but I'm sure it's as wonderful as other guests have said. The owner is very friendly, as are his sons, and indeed, everyone in the shops was amazingly friendly, kind and helpful. However, the sun room needs either half nets or blinds for privacy.

    We have a wood burner at home and the cottage was warm enough for us without using the fire. I am hampered by a hip repair so didn't feel confident enough to climb in and out of the hot tub, but I'm sure it's as wonderful as other guests have said. The owner is very friendly, as are his sons, and indeed, everyone in the shops was amazingly friendly, kind and helpful. However, the sun room needs either half nets or blinds for privacy. We had to sleep downstairs on the sofa bed and you need curtains or blinds of some sort, because the family use the cottage garden for access. Wi Fi is sporadic at best (even with a dongle) and some people would find this a bonus, others not. The cottage is well equipped but a fridge with ice box would be better than a larder fridge. The cottage is very central and you would expect a lot of noise from the shops and 2 pubs very nearby but it's amazingly quiet and the garden is lovely and you don't get the impression you are in the centre of Low Town. Bridgnorth is lovely, and the surrounding areas are stunning - it is a much overlooked part of the country. Much Wenlock and Shrewsbury are well worth a visit. We liked the cottage but it is not suitable for anyone with walking/mobility issues and the reason we wouldn't go back is because I have mobility problems. But we couldn't fault the friendliness or generosity of the owners - lovely little touches of welcoming wine, biscuits, tea etc and bath products. Give it a go yourselves - there are a lot of return visitors!

The property

A charming end-terrace cottage with a hot tub situated next to the owner’s home, just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Bridgnorth and the River Severn.

The character and charm of the cottage, including the many wall and ceiling beams, is evident as you enter through the front door into the open plan living area, complete with a warming woodburning stove for cosy evenings.

The cottage also boasts a compact but well-equipped kitchen, a comfy sitting area and a breakfast bar.

To the side of the cottage is a second sitting room with a dining area overlooking the cottage garden; doors from here open out to the decking, meaning you can let inside a cool breeze on a warm summer’s day.

The modern bathroom is situated on the ground floor, whilst from the open plan living area, original curved tram steps lead upstairs to access the two lovely bedrooms, both with oak flooring.

Outside, guests can relax in the luxurious hot tub, fire up the barbecue or simply sit back and relax with a refreshing drink whilst discussing the day's activities.

The bustling market town of Bridgnorth offers something for everyone with a weekly street market, individual shops, quaint tea room and traditional pubs.

The River Severn is just a stone’s throw away and provides an excellent backdrop for walks and cycle rides and is a haven for wildlife.

A charming cottage blending delightful character features with all the mod cons, comfort and little luxuries you’ll need for a memorable Shropshire holiday.

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.
