    “The house is well located, just opposite the Abbey and a short walk into town.”

    Parking outside the house or in the large car park behind is straightforward. It has some charming features - French Windows, a dining room and a great shower and is relatively well equipped. We were very pleased to find milk and cake on arrival! ...

    Parking outside the house or in the large car park behind is straightforward. It has some charming features - French Windows, a dining room and a great shower and is relatively well equipped. We were very pleased to find milk and cake on arrival! Unfortunately though the house is on a very busy road and there is almost constant traffic noise. Behind us there was builders work going on which could also be noisy. The less noisy bedroom is on the third floor and is I think a converted bathroom. It needs a better mattress and some bedside furniture and rewiring as a bedroom. The garden is paved and could be made a bit more of. Officious welcome packs are not pleasant and the house was happily relaxed in that respect. We could though have done with more info about things like recycling and so on. So much for the house. Shrewsbury itself was interesting but much larger than we had realised. It deserves some planning in advance to get orientated. There are numerous small shops and cafes but eating out isn’t straightforward.. and needs research; we had two or three poor meals and a dodgy pint. The town is somewhat ruined by traffic but you can escape that by visiting the Excellent and extensive parks. There is a park and riverside walk just up the hill from the house. The museum would be a good starting point for any visit or the boat ride which goes around the river - the river is wide and gently flowing. In short we would like to come back to Shrewsbury for a short stay but wouldn’t choose to stay at the abbey Foregate largely because of the traffic.

About the property

189 Abbey Foregate is a terraced Georgian townhouse located opposite the main Abbey in central Shrewsbury, only a short distance from the heart of the town, with a variety of local amenities to attract the visitor.

Situated over four floors, this cottage is wrapped in character and charm, a quirky place to bring your loved ones, where together you can build some memories in one of England's finest heritage towns.

Enter the cottage and you will receive a warm welcome from two fabulous sitting rooms; the first is elevated by natural lighting with a view of the delightful garden to keep you company.

Centred by a feature fireplace and divided by an archway, you will be spoilt for choice between the two.

The kitchen and dining room are located on the lower ground floor, an almost enchanting addition to the cottage, with fantastic exposed beams to compliment the formation.

Across the first and second floor, discover the beautiful assortment of bedrooms, all expressing their own personality through floral or patterned bedding.

The master suite even includes its own shower room located on the upper level, finishing the interior to that of a hotel standard.

To admire the beautiful exterior, why not spend an hour or two in the garden which features its own patio area, a pleasant suntrap to take in the peaceful surroundings.

Explore the picturesque cobbled alleys and squares or enjoy some of the events and festivals that take place each year, particularly Shrewsbury's 'Summer Season', which caters for every age and interest.

The town offers a diverse selection of independent and high street shops, along with plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants and pubs.

Visit NT's stately Attingham Park, an elegant 18th century mansion, Wroxeter Roman City, the museums at Ironbridge, the castle and Michelin starred restaurants of Ludlow, or Acton Scott working farm.

The perfect holiday destination.
