The property

Ironbridge 2.5 miles.

This semi-detached cottage is tucked away close to the historical town of Ironbridge, Shropshire.

Situated on the edge of Ironbridge Gorge, this accommodation is ideal for couples or families wishing to explore the beautiful Severn Valley.

Enter through the French doors and into the kitchen and dining area with everything you need to feel right at home whilst preparing meals from morning through to evening.

An enchanting sitting room featuring exposed beams provides a comfortable space to sit back and relax by the woodburning stove.

Further round, a nicely decorated bathroom houses a roll top bath and shower.

Wander up the stairs to the top floor where you will arrive at a pleasant landing area hosting a selection of books which you can enjoy whilst cosying up in bed.

The first double bedroom is complete with bedside tables and storage space, with lovely views of the garden and beyond.

The second bedroom features a double bed and a single.

To the outside of the cottage is a beautiful enclosed garden where you can enjoy a barbecue in the sunshine whilst the children play.

Ironbridge is just a short drive away and is a superb holiday base, abounding in first-class amenities along with much character due to its links with the Industrial Revolution.

It lies within good distance of Telford and Shrewsbury, both are must-visits when in this magnificent area of England.

A delightful cottage which can be enjoyed throughout the year.

About the location


Telford 6 miles; Bridgnorth 8.5 miles; Shrewsbury 15 miles.

Ironbridge Gorge is known throughout the world as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Today the area is far from industrial and nature has reclaimed most of the former industrial sites, leaving a unique and beautiful wooded valley. The gorge is a now a maze of footpaths, bridleways and country lanes whilst the delightful village is famous for being home of the world's first iron-built bridge, built between 1777-79. The village has a splendid variety of pubs, restaurants, shops and tea rooms and a collection of ten industrial and Victorian themed museums makes up the Ironbridge Museums Trust, including the exciting Blists Hill Victorian Village. Within driving distance are the popular historical towns of Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth, Much Wenlock and Ludlow, as well as the Wroxeter Roman City, the Severn valley Railway, the RAF Cosford Museum and many National Trust properties. Ironbridge is a wonderful base from which to explore the beautiful county of Shropshire.
