  • "Very well equipped and plenty of information about equipment."

    Had a problem with the cooker, but may have been user error? instructions were too complicated. Position of the cottage was perfect, and directions good, parking easy etc the additional information about dog walking was especially helpful.

    Thanks for your lovely and constructive feedback. We have added some notes to the oven manufacturer’s instructions which hopefully make them clearer. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Severn Way Cottage."

    Everything we needed was supplied and the cottage was extremely clean so thank you for that! The cottage is ideally situated for a quick walk into Shrewsbury through the park which is directly behind. For a convenient evening meal or drink we would recommend The Armoury. The staff are all very welcoming and efficient. Places we visited and would recommend are Attingham Park, Dudmaston Hall (if possible do the art tour it is so interesting especially the Spanish section), Chirk Castle and Chirk aqueduct, of course Ironbridge and museums. If you like walking then you have to do Carding Mill Valley and Long Mynd. We were so lucky with the weather. Absolutely beautiful panoramic views. Once again thank you for a wonderful week!

  • "This is a fantastic cottage, very comfortable and clean."

    The decor is fresh and uncluttered but retaining features appropriate to the age of the property. Beautiful fireplaces in the bedrooms. The kitchen has appliances which are straightforward to use and the large fridge freezer is very useful. Very comfortable beds and lovely fresh linen. Having two bathrooms is a bonus. Super location with a short walk across the suspension bridge and into the town through the park. Shrewsbury is a fascinating town which is easily explored on foot. Excellent food market and an artisan bakers opposite the railway station. We had a great time and will definitely return to this cottage.

  • "The proximity of the cottage to the river Severn and the Quarry, the beautiful park in Shrewsbury, is such an attractive attribute to the property."

    The Quarry is bustling with activity; with two boathouses competitive rowing or training on the river is a daily occurrence. There are also other water sports on offer. The cottage is extremely close to the Theatre Severn and the historic town centre, with its wealth of independent shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes. Severn Way cottage was immaculately clean-its pristine condition is instantly apparent. It is comfortable and has everything you could require. A sympathetic renovation has been carried out and I loved staying there. Instructions for appliances and the location of the cottage are clear. The fact that there is a secure garden is a bonus when you are staying with a dog. My labradoodle quickly learnt that the idyllic river walk was just down the lane! I wholeheartedly recommend Severn Way Cottage.

  • "This is a lovely cottage ,well situated for all amenities."

    I would have liked a cd player and dvd player but it seems to a growing trend for these items to be omitted in a lot of holiday properties.Also , a minor thing was missing for someone who likes cooking whilst on holiday,ie serving tongs and a carving fork.Otherwise, well supplied with utensils etc.

    Thank you for your positive and constructive feedback. We have put a DVD and CD player in the cottage and also added a carving fork and serving tongs to the kitchen utensil drawer. If you decide to come again please do contact us if there is anything you need as we can usually accommodate. Property Owner

The property

An impressive Victorian cottage with accommodation set over three floors standing at the centre of the heritage town of Shrewsbury, Severn Way Cottage is a superb choice for two couples or friends seeking to explore this desirable area of Shropshire.

The cottage is just 100m from the famous Boat House pub and Port Hill Suspension bridge crossing the Severn to the Quarry Park.

Step into the welcoming dining hall – a multi-functional space for formal dining, home working, reading or board games.

Follow the room through into the equally inviting sitting room where an electric woodburning-effect fire awaits to warm you up after each day of adventure, with views over your own private garden.

Follow the stairs down to the lower ground floor to find a spacious kitchen/diner making a wonderful social spot to toast to a terrific holiday as your homemade meal simmers on the hob, a good range of appliances found here to assist you on a week-long stay.

The lower ground floor is also home to a stylish bathroom where you can indulge in a relaxing soak, while up on the first floor rests a shower room, offering guests plenty of space to prepare for the day.

The first floor is also where you can find two beautifully presented bedrooms; with one double and one king-size both complete with ornate fireplaces, they ensure a lovely spot to rest in between each fun-filled day.

For added flexibility there is a sofa bed for two in the sitting room.

Pull on your shoes and take the short stroll into the town of Shrewsbury, following the soothing sounds of the flowing River Severn offering plenty of scenic spots to enjoy a picnic, with plenty of shops for picking up any essential snacks, or treat yourself to a dining experience in one of the many cafés, pubs, and restaurants, catering to all tastes with a wide range of cuisines to choose from. Being a heritage town, you can expect to find plenty of beauty all around, with 600 listed buildings to marvel at, as well as rich history to uncover through attractions such as Shrewsbury Abbey, home to the fictional Brother Cadfael, Shrewsbury Castle with its breath-taking gardens to roam and the Shropshire Regimental Museum, while Quarry Park is also well-worth exploring for its impressive annual Shrewsbury Flower Show! Be sure to spend a day at the nearby National Trust-owned Attingham Park too, an 18th century estate with 200 acres of parkland and Regency Mansion to discover, it makes a fantastic day out for all ages.

Ludlow is just a scenic drive away where you can find even more exceptional eateries, or spend a day in Telford for a day of shopping and finding the perfect souvenir for your loved ones back home.

For those seeking outdoor adventure the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a must, with a plethora of scenic walking and cycling routes alongside an abundance of outdoor activities, it's well-worth exploring at any time of the year!
