  • "It would be nice to have a couple of fold up chairs for the front outside space as you advertise it in your photos but it is an unusable space as it is."

    The road has a fair amount of traffic outside, but late evening you could sit outside.

  • "Newly rennovated compact cottage perfect for a short stay for 2."

    Decor and appliances are of high standard, however there is a strong smell of damp (I assume) downstairs - so much so we had to leave the door open. Had all amenities we needed but we lacked instruction booklet/welcome pack that is usual with cottages - no instructions for bins/recycling, appliance usage and we had no hot water throughout our stay. Car parking instructions seriously lacking - as per other reviews, this should be a simple fix.

  • "The parking space "opposite" was not very accurate and there were no directions in the property or on the website to indicate where the allocated space was: Across the road 100 yards to the left, down a steep slope and against the old factory wall."

    Once we located the slot we used it easily!!! It would be lovely to have some indication in the property of its age and history which is available via the various Gorge Museums. The stairs are indeed very steep and not suitable for those with any mobility issues. This ought to be on the website too. Otherwise a lovely comfortable cottage. Thank you.

  • "The cottage was beautifully presented, bright and clean."

    It is compact but was ideal for the two of us. We just about coped with the stairs, which are steep (both in our early 70s but relatively fit ). Car parking was the major concern as the road outside is quite busy at peak times. Decided to park further downhill an area about 120metres away. Enjoyed our stay very much.

  • "Recently refurbished to a high standard."

    This was an ideal property for two people but could be a little small for 4. Ideally situated for access to Ironbridge although it is up a hill which would be an issue for anyone not 100% good on their feet. Overall we had a lovely time and would certainly recommend. Paul

  • "Whilst the property was lovely and in good condition, the Wi-Fi was very poor and only really useful when in the living room."

    When in any other room my devices would drop off every so often and I would have to reboot the Sky box; I think a booster box would sort this out. The lack of an extractor fan in what is a relatively small kitchen was very surprising. When I cooked one evening the steam came down to my shoulders. Finally, finding an empty red wine bottle in one of the kitchen cupboards did not go down well.

Settled in the historic village of Coalbrookdale in Shropshire is this characterful cottage, Number 5.

Family-friendly, pet-friendly, and a homely base from this to explore, this cottage makes an ideal choice all year round.

Parking just across the road makes a convenient welcome, before stepping into your home-from-home for the trip.

A living/dining room with a Smart TV and fireplace adds to the charm of the property, providing you with a space to unwind in after a busy day.

When it’s time to refuel, make your way into the kitchen, complete with ample cooking facilities and a handy dishwasher for cleaning up.

Completing the ground floor is a sleek shower room for freshening up before a day of exploring.

Upstairs, find two bright and airy bedrooms, a double and a bunk, where you can rest your head and dream of the next day’s discoveries.

Outside, why not sip on a coffee from the espresso machine in the front courtyard while you plan your itinerary?

A gorgeous little home-from-home, choose Number 5.

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.
