    “A secluded railway cottage ...”

    A secluded railway cottage approached along an unadopted track that runs under the Ironbridge and sits below the former railway station site. The cottage has been decorated with care to complement its own working history and the location. This is an ideal base to walk to all the major Ironbridge sites, the the railway line (now cycle route) cuts through the woods behind the cottage. Parking for anything larger than a small saloon can be a test outside the cottage, the lane is narrow and there ...

    A secluded railway cottage approached along an unadopted track that runs under the Ironbridge and sits below the former railway station site. The cottage has been decorated with care to complement its own working history and the location. This is an ideal base to walk to all the major Ironbridge sites, the the railway line (now cycle route) cuts through the woods behind the cottage. Parking for anything larger than a small saloon can be a test outside the cottage, the lane is narrow and there are other residents cars to avoid. An easier option is to park in the railway station car park above the cottage. The landlord provides a parking permit, so it's included, and my recommended scratch free option.

The property

This delightful end-terrace cottage offers a wonderful location in the heart of the historic Shropshire town of Ironbridge.

Full of character, the property is within walking distance of the famous bridge itself, making a charming and romantic holiday home.

With a genuine country cottage feel throughout, the ground floor has a sitting room with woodburning stove and a cosy atmosphere.

The country kitchen is well-equipped with amenities and includes a Belfast sink and a separate dining area, with feature fireplace and beamed ceilings.

Upstairs houses two bedrooms.

To the rear, a peaceful twin room and to the front, a double bedroom from where you can see the famous Ironbridge itself.

The family bathroom has been well finished, with a shower over bath, basin and WC.

The front of the cottage looks across the river to the town.

It has a large lawned area, with a patio section and furniture.

The rear contains a small patio area, again with furniture.

The location of the cottage is ideal.

Walk back up the bridle path and you are immediately standing across the river from the facilities of Ironbridge with its many traditional pubs, village shops and local tourist attractions – and of course, a stroll across the Iron Bridge itself to get there.

With its museums and gorge it is hard to tear yourself away from this wonderful location, but should you wish to explore further afield, Telford is only a few miles drive away, or to the west the vibrant market town of Shrewsbury and the beauty of the Shropshire Hills.

Bridge View is a charming cottage housed neatly down a bridle path in the heart of the famous Ironbridge, a wonderful location to explore the historical town and surrounding Shropshire countryside.

About the location

IRONBRIDGE

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.
