  • "The cottage was so cosy we felt at home,I had took cleaning products and towels but did not need a thing."

    The there was plenty towels cleanliness wonderful.as this cottage allows good dogs I thought there could be a bit of odour but no you would not have known a thing!the owners introduced themselves and were great.the hot tub was a bonus ,i had a school friend living near and she came to visit and we went in,we maybe 70 but I have never had such a laugh and fun!!!! The only small flaw (for me as I wS mending a fractured hip) was the tram stairs but as the bathroom was down stairs I tried not to use if possible. Bridgenorth is lovely and you needn’t go far out of it,you have a tram going up and down and sitting by the river with a glass of wine was ideal.also nearly next door a HUGE antique shop with a cafe upstairs ready to do you a breakfast/lunch in a mad hatters tea party lounge !we had a great time. One thing that didn’t bother us it doesn’t have WiFi.

    ... great to be able to leave the car behind and walk into town and enjoy the atmosphere of the shops and the many eating and drinking places. The cottage is a gem ... extremely clean and well equipped. You have to be a little agile to use the stairs but you get used to them. Owners are very nice and helpful. My husband loved the hot tub and the garden was safe and secure for our dog .... we will be back!!!

  • "This is a beautiful cottage."

    Rob and Deb could not have been any more welcoming. The property was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The hosts were particularly helpful as my mom could not climb the stunning spiral staircase - sofa bed in the garden room was genius. The hot tub was my sanctuary - we were blessed with good weather. Perfect position for a non driver - bus stop outside the front door, takeaways doors away and Coop and M&S food over the road. Such a beautiful premises showing such a high standard of workmanship. Cannot recommend enough - we have booked for next year already, we decided on day 1 that tram cottage is our perfect get away place.

  • "Absolutely loved this cottage!"

    Home away from home with so many added touches. This has been by far the best cottage we have stayed in todate and we can't wait to return. The hosts made us feel extremely welcome from start to finish. The property was so clean and homely with lots of thoughtful added extras. Inside is so warm and cosy, with lots of character and the best nights sleep I've had in ages. The secure outside area was perfect for my dog and little one and the hot tub and play area really added to our experience. Location is perfect, everything you could possible need on your doorstep and gorgeous walks along the river. I can't write highly enough of this property and their hosts! Highly recommend for a pet friendly, family or couples holiday!

  • "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 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!

  • "Beautiful cottage in a beautiful area."

    Wonderfully friendly and helpful owners. The hot tub was great. Bridgnorth is lovely with everything you need practically plus historical buildings/railway, amazing floral displays and a plethora of charity shops to peruse. We found lots to do in the local area with the children. We loved the cottage. The only drawbacks were a lack of drying facilities in wet weather (family of 4 plus hot-tub for a week = lots of washing/drying - replace washing machine with a washer/dryer ?) and the need for privacy in the house and garden. For child protection and modesty reasons, there need to be blinds/nets/privacy film at the windows (esp bathroom and garden room) that let through light but maintain privacy. The hot-tub and the route to it should also be screened off from users of the shared garden pathway. Apart from that, we had a perfect, relaxing week's holiday.

  • "Generally we were happy with the cottage but we were disappointed that there was no Wi Fi."

    The 2 beds in the 2nd bedroom were VERY HARD indeed and made sleep difficult. The car access was very tricky down an extremely narrow alleyway. It was JUST okay with my Mini but any bigger car would have real trouble. Also, the spiral staircase was much smaller and tighter than anticipated. So you need to be fairly fit to negotiate them. The location of the cottage is good and there are 2 good supermarkets just a few meters away which is really handy. Likewise the fish and chip shop.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage, very quiet location despite being so conveniently located in Low Town."

    Everything you need is within strolling distance, hardly had to move the car once we'd arrived. The hot tub and log burner are the icing on the cake. The owners are smashing, really welcoming and friendly. Extremely well provisioned kitchen means you can prepare virtually anything you need, and failing that there are some cracking places to eat around the town. Superb.

  • "The hot tub and the wood burning fire were the highlights!"

    This gorgeous, cute and comfortable cottage was just what we needed to get away from the busy hustle and bustle of London. Tucked nicely away but close enough to shops and the Town Centre, the cottage was so lovely. The conservatory was really nice to relax in also. It was warm and cosy, and the owners were so friendly and helpful. The only suggestion I would have would be to have the addition of Wi-Fi, just for use of Netflix etc for the evenings. Other than that, it was a perfect break.

  • "We have booked holidays with Sykes for many years and this was the first time it did not reflect the advertisement."

    The ad stated that the property had a front lawned area which was PRIVATE with a hot tub and that the driveway was shared with the owners. Sharing the drive was not an issue, however the garden was NOT PRIVATE. This affected our holiday massively. The owners, neighbours and workers walked up and down the garden everyday with wheel barrows and garden equipmen (usually very early at 06.40) We did not feel comfortable or relaxed enough to use the hot tub or relax in the conservatorybecause of this. The property next to the owners is rented and the woman’s dog yapped all the time it was out in the yard and she kept saying “sorry, he’s a pain”. Leaving the property was froought with the problems. We struggled all week with the keys which were stiff and impractical. Leaving to get out of the back to take out car out meant walking through a neighbours garden, opening and closing a large steel gate and driving around a potholed path to get out onto the high street and if we left via the front entrance then we had to walk through a fatty smelling chip shop alley. The cottage itself inside was lovely and quirky and there was nothing that we needed for. The stairs were extremely steep as they are old tram stairs and this needs reflecting in the advertisement. Had this cottage been PRIVATE as advertised then it would have been a really different holiday. When you look at the pictures on line they are very deceptive, but the reality is that you have to walk off the high street through a number of other cottages to get to yours. The lady owner was very welcoming and polite.

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.
