The property

Set in a picturesque location overlooking Coalport's central canal along the River Severn is this welcoming semi-detached cottage.

Canal Cottage is the perfect romantic retreat for a couple looking to explore the beauty of Shropshire during a weekend of celebration.

Discover this quaint accommodation right on the banks of sparkling canal waters, right next to a crossing bridge, boasting a lovely front patio where you can relax with your morning coffee, or dine alfresco as you unwind to the sounds of flowing waters.

As you walk through the front door, feel charmed by the speckles of character shown throughout exposed beams and quirky walling in the living/dining room, meals can be enjoyed on the high dining table which looks out to the canal, whilst a corner sofa offers a plush spot to cuddle up with a glass of wine as the TV entertains you.

A few steps down takes you to a compact kitchen, amply-equipped to cover all the necessities for your needs, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and even washing machine for longer stays.

Climb the steep staircase to the first floor and find an inviting king-size bedroom, a well-presented room to rest your head after a long day, enjoy lazy mornings here with your own fantastic TV and views outside before getting ready in the sleek bathroom, choosing between a soothing bubble bath or refreshing shower.

Explore the local surroundings of Coalport village, taking romantic afternoon strolls along the canal, learning about the area's rich history at the Coalport China Museum, or enjoying an evening out of the kitchen for a special date night in one of the three local pubs which offer food and delicious ales.

More amenities can be found in the nearby town of Madeley, or along the river over to Ironbridge, a historic village with a wealth of shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, and tea rooms, as well as several industrial and Victoriam museums, making up the Ironbridge Museums Trust.

Spend a memorable day out at the Blists Hill Victorian Town which takes you back in time to over 100 years past, with 'real' Victorian people taking you on a tour around their daily life.

For a truly unique experience, venture out towards the imposing Lavingtons Hole, or take a picturesque trip up the gorgeous clifftops on the sensational Bridgnorth Cliff Railway.

Other local attractions in the surrounding area include the Wroxeter Roman City, the Severn valley Railway, the RAF Cosford Museum, as well as the charming towns of Much Wenlock, Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth, and Ludlow.

In close distance to the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Canal Cottage is a dreamy base for your romantic escape.
