    “Excellent location.”

    Small but homely and comfy house. Nice extra touches for Christmas but there were a couple of problems not clear from the description. There was no toilet on the same floor as the master bedroom so we slept in the 2nd bedroom so as not to have to use unfamiliar stairs during the night. The description mentioned en-suite shower but we assumed en-suite included toilet and shower was mentioned to distinguish it from a bath.. This should be clarified. ...

The description mentioned en-suite shower but we assumed en-suite included toilet and shower was mentioned to distinguish it from a bath.. This should be clarified. There was no specific guest information provided. Information about rubbish collection / re-cycling should be provided. We had to leave piles of stuff by the bin in the kitchen as we had no idea what to do with paper, glass etc. There should be a brief guest info booklet.

    Thank you for your feedback. Apologies for the confusion regarding the listing information about the lay out of the property. The 2nd floor en suite has a shower and wash basin facility but no toilet. Separate toilets are available in the property for customer use, this has since been amended on the listing. With reference to recycling information in the property, it is usually in place to assist customers but unfortunately it must have gone missing after a previous guest stayed and we were not aware of this. Thank you for letting us know, this has since been replaced. Overall we hope it didn't detract from your time at 189 Abbey Foregate and we look forward to seeing you again soon. - Sykes owner relations

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.
