  • Mr Johnson

    “Nice quirky town house in a good location for walking into town and easy access to motorway links.”

    The owner was very friendly and helpful. Just be aware that there is some noise in the house from outside traffic (the house is on a main road). Further, the outside area is more of a patio area than a garden and the upstairs 'shower room' is a shower cubicle put into an existing bedroom. The two toilets are both on the third floor. Parking is easy with a pay and display (£4 per day) car park next to the property. I would stay there again-the location and charm make up for any minor ...

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.
