  • "The cottage is lovely and quaint."

    It was clean and tidy and in a great location. However, one of the main reasons for us booking it was the listed Wood Burner which turned out not to be working when we arrived (the listing had been edited to say this was not ready until 2024 after we had booked). The water heating was also too temperamental, having to try and get the tap in the perfect position to get any hot water at all; this to me is a basic that should be sorted. Finally, the wifi is shared between several cottages which makes it largely unusable with a poor connection and constant buffering. This is also unacceptable given the price paid for the stay. All issues were mentioned to the owners, but it didn’t seem they were too keen on resolving them to be honest, maybe given the time of year that we visited.

  • "A beautiful cottage in a gorgeous place."

    We spent four nights here with our Jack Russell, Oscar and it was cosy and comfortable, with everything you need. The only thing was the internet connection and Wi-Fi were on and off unreliable, and this meant the smart tv, which was very hard to set up, and you couldn’t get normal tv, was very hard to watch as the iplayer kept stopping. Ended up giving up, which was nice to turn off electronic devices for a while I suppose. Overall, I would definitely recommend though

  • "Designated parking space for location was unclear (possible signage to be displayed)."

    Managed to park on School Lane, not an issue. Did not take away from a very enjoyable break. Lovely cottage, clean and homely atmosphere. Nice walk to Ironbridge. Well lit, hard standing path all the way. Friendly local pub, The Swan located 10-15 minute from cottage (Ironbridge). Very friendly staff and lovely food and drink.

  • "We were changed to number 6 which was very similar due to the wifi not working at number 4 but the property owner was very good and informed us before we arrived and asked if we would like to move to number 6."

    The property was beautifully done and was very well equipped. Would definitely go again if we were staying in Coalbrookdale.

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.
