  • “The cottage is in an excellent location, also top quality refurbishment.”

    The owners also dropped off a fan during the heatwave. Thank you.

About the property

An impressive, three-storey Victorian home 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!
