  • "Very well equipped and cozy cottage in great location."

    Lots to do in the area and lots of pubs, cafés and restaurants within walking distance of the cottage. The welcome pack from the owners was a nice touch.

  • "A great little cottage in a superb spot really close to all the little treats that Ironbridge has to offer."

    Free parking in a nearby carpark and it was easy to just leave the car and walk to many of the gorge museums. There is a brilliant view of the Iron Bridge from the cottage that was even more spectacular when it was lit up at night. This listed cottage is quirky but has plenty of mod cons to provide a perfect relaxing stay.

  • "Bridge view cottage is one of the best homes I have ever stayed in, and I always book homes/cottages/apartments when I go away."

    It is a picturesque cottage in a picturesque setting! I could have stayed much longer! This was a cozy, little, yet spacious, cottage under the bridge by the river. It had everything we needed for a weekend stay, and more! Everything is though of here! Even spare bulbs and batteries, flash lights for night walks to and from the cottage and a welcome pack of biscuits, milk and prosecco! The house was extremely clean and was truly a home from home. The log fire after a cold day roaming the area was lovely The hosts were friendly and sent clear communication and were quick to respond to queeries. There was also a good information folder at the property. The only point I would make is that the property is down a private road where parking outside the property isn't possible. Loading and unloading is fine.We knew this when we booked, and it wasn't an issue for us. However it could be an issue for anyone with slight mobility issues or someone with prams etc. There was a space for us down the lane under the bridge to park- but we did get mucky shoes everytime we had to leave the property and walk to the car or onto the bridge. Navigating the potholes and puddles by torch at night was tricky. However visiting a cottage in a setting like this in the winter, it is expected. There are steps up to the bridge and a carpark above if there isnt room under the bridge. a free parking permit was waiting at the property too for parking in any council carparks. Brilliant! We would highly recommend this property and would not hessitate to return. I can only imagine how glorious this place would be on a Summers day! You will not be dissapointed if you stay here. Thank you!

    The hosts were terrific. They were very responsive and went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable. The place is well equipped with everything you will need in a house and very closely located to the shops and bars. We stayed for 18 days and had a wonderful experience in this house.

  • "The cottage has recently been redecorated and everything was clean, bright and fresh."

    It's also rather more roomy inside than the listing photos suggest. The cottage's owners gave us a friendly welcome and, in fact, all our neighbours were very friendly as well. This would make a great base for a family holiday, especially if you are interested in Britain's industrial heritage.

  • "I rely on Sykes for all of my cottage bookings and have stayed in many stunning cottages over the years."

    However I was very disappointed at the access arrangements for Bridge Cottage as the holiday was to be shared with my elderly parents. The original description stated “there are steps to the nearby car park” On arrival I discovered there were 30 very steep steps to the car park not to mention three steps just to the front path. Inside the cottage the guest guidance needed to be properly updated and not just tipexed! I understand that owners have been requested to limit what they leave for guests however I would have appreciated a carton of milk and a small jar of instant coffee instead of an out of date voucher for a non existent shop! Ironbridge as a town is lovely.

  • "First time to Ironbridge and booked Bridge View Cottage."

    The directions we got from the owners were spot on and we managed to get the car parked under the bridge where the owners mentioned. Failing this we had a resident pass to park in the station car park which had loads of spaces. The cottage is about a 30 second walk from the bridge and a couple of minutes from the main street in Ironbridge. The cottage itself was nice and cosy with everything you need to relax. There is a decent size garden at the front of the property for kids to run round. It gets very dark on a night as there is very little street lighting, however the owners have left two small torches by the front door for people to use on their way home. The cottage is in an ideal location as all of the facilities in Ironbridge are in walking distance. On the way to the cottage we followed the sat nav. We ended up going down a hill, past Blists Hill Victorian Town and the sat nav wanted us to turn right at the bottom of the hill. Unfortunately the road it tried to take us along was closed when we were there. We had to drive back up the hill to a roundabout, eventually the sat nav kicked in and re-directed us. The cottage was very clean and tidy when we arrived. Can definitely recommend B\ridge View Cottage if you are planning on spending some time in Ironbridge.

  • "The cottage is idelly located and suited us really well."

    The facilities are excellent and it is very cosy. The only issue could be the parking arrangements. It would be very difficult to park outside the cottage as the next door cottage has a very large vehicle. We were happy to park in the car park using the pass provided but it is not local to the cottage and some people might be unhappy to leave their car in a public car park.

  • "The only down side to the booking was receiving the previous owners contact details to confirm collection of keys."

    It was rather embarrassing to hear that he had recently sold the cottage and Sykes should have taken his details off the information list. I was also disappointed that after I phoned Sykes to report this back, the person I spoke to said give me half an hour and I'll get back to you, this was 1.30pm on Tuesday (before we were due to travel on Friday) and I had to call Sykes back at 9.30am Wednesday to ask for an update on the situation. I understand that the new owners may not have been available that day but a courtesy call/email back would have been appreciated on the Tuesday. Small glitch, we went on to have a great holiday in a lovely cottage, we met new owners Janet and Mick, they we're really friendly and helpful.

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 a feature fireplace and exposed 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.

9 Ladywood 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.
