    “The location is brilliant.”

    The location is brilliant. Shrewsbury town centre is walkable in about 15 minutes. Alternatively, there is a bus stop about 5 minutes away. We didn't take a car, and didn't need one. The setting is great. Every room looks out on a large beautifully-kept lawn which slopes down to a winding brook. Beyond that is a golf course. Very secluded and peaceful. The owner is the perfect host - available to help when needed, but otherwise leaves you alone to do your own thing. Plus, we really appreciated ...

Plus, we really appreciated the bottle of wine and home-made sponge cake waiting in the kitchen when we arrived. If I'm ever vacationing in the Shropshire area again, this will be my first choice of accommodation.

The property

Shrewsbury centre 1.75 miles.

This comfortable, spacious cottage is set in the owners’ large gardens leading down to Rea Brook and the golf course.

This semi-detached cottage has the advantage of a rural feeling whilst being just 10 minutes’ drive from Shrewsbury town centre and is ideal for couples who want to sample the delights of Shrewsbury and the many south Shropshire towns and tourist attractions.

Set all on the ground floor, the cottage has a fitted kitchen, a comfortable sitting room and a conservatory, as well as a separate dining room with a sofa bed.

The spacious double bedroom boasts an en-suite shower room.

Outside there is a large patio bordered by pretty flower beds with lovely views across the owners’ garden down to Rea Brook; quite a rural haven on the outskirts of the bustling town centre.

Shrewsbury has much to offer with riverside walks and boat rides, excellent shopping, delightful coffee shops and pubs as well as many pretty Black and White buildings.

The Castle and Abbey, Theatre Severn and Quarry Park add to the town’s attractions, so take in a show or treat yourself to something special from one of the many independent shops.

Alternatively, hop on a train to one of the local towns such as Church Stretton or Ludlow.

The nearby Attingham Park National Trust property is a good day out and just a short drive will bring you to The Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site.

A comfortable cottage in a lovely location.
