  • "Lovely cottage, clean and equipped to a good standard."

    The cottage is compact could do with a smaller table in the kitchen, the pouffe in the lounge could do with being replaced with a smaller table. Log burner is there for show cannot be used. The Cottage is within walking distance to of Ironbridge and a number of the museum’s.

    Hi Nicola, Thanks so much for your feedback! We appreciate the table makes it snug in there! But we figured people would rather sit down as a group around the table rather than a high, smaller breakfast bar which was the alternative. Will definitely consider swapping the pouffe though! :) Property Owner

  • "Perfect Property for a couple exploring the Ironbridge gorge attractions, many of which are just on the opposite side of the road."

    Also a friendly local pub only 200metres away. Perfectly Clean and fresh with every single household item that you could wish for. Car parking is about 100metres walk, but not a problem. All highly recommended.

    Thank you for the feedback :) much appreciated! Property Owner

  • "The stair carpet needs immediate repair - it is very dangerous."

    We reported the issue to Sykes and the owner at the start of our stay. Other than that, a lovely, well-appointed cottage. A little cluttered, maybe - a smaller kitchen table and lose the pouf would free up some much needed space. Need better instructions in finding the parking. But a great base to explore a beautiful part of the world. And a great pub two minutes walk from the front door.

  • "Number 6 is a lovely cottage, quite compact, plenty of character and very well equipped for a comfortable stay."

    Some minor observations, the car parking space is a short walk from the house, over the road and down a hill, not easy for loading/unloading the car as you cannot safely stop outside the cottage. The kitchen table & chairs, and the lounge furniture are probably too chunky in style for the rooms so you do feel a little squeezed on space but it would not put me off staying again. Lovely walks on the doorstep, great for dog owners.

  • "Lovely little cottage, well decorated and great location."

    The advert did say there was a cot, high chair and stair gate available but theses were not there when we arrived. The floorboard on the top step also appears broken, which made it a bit dangerous for the kids to climb up and down the stairs.

  • "An amazing cottage to stay in and a very convenient location, we even found pictures and plans of the cottages in one of the museums."

    We could of done with a map of where the parking location was as I was still confused even after a phone call, also we would of benefited from a second key so we can leave someone behind and lock up.

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.
