  • “The Lookout is the perfect base for getting to know the Ironbridge area.”

    It's a lovely cottage - very comfortable and well equipped, and in a great position. We enjoyed spending time in the cottage - and also sitting in the garden at the back or watching the world go by from the bench at the front. It's very handy for the shops, bars and restaurants of Ironbridge as well as for getting to the nearby museums - we took out the annual pass for the 10 museums. The parking permit worked very well - we used the car park at the Museum of the Gorge. As you'll be aware from ...

As you'll be aware from the description, staying there can involve using steep paths (although some of the routes are gentler/longer - but we found them all fine! Highly recommended.

Enjoying an elevated position within the Shropshire town with a bird's eye view over the countryside setting, this quaint cottage promises to be a wonderful escape for a couple seeking to explore the delights of the Heart of England.

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.
