“Excellent location, beautiful views, apartment is actually larger than depicted in photos, very quiet.”
Parking was a bit of a problem, but we managed.. close location for trains, so you really do not need a car. Shrewsbury was really interesting, and we loved the beautiful walk home beside the river.

A superbly located ground floor riverfront apartment in a Grade II listed house, located a short walk from the heart of the historic market town of Shrewsbury.
This pleasant riverside apartment overlooks the majestic River Severn, and enjoys a secluded location tucked away off the road, perfect for a romantic break.
Formerly the Prison Governor’s Grade II listed home, you enter the property through a communal entrance hall into a private hallway, where you will find a door leading to a king-size double bedroom with full length sash window, which overlooks the apartment’s small outdoor seating area.
The bathroom enjoys a bath with shower over to suit all requirements, whilst the kitchen has been thoughtfully equipped to provide ample storage, along with a breakfast bar for occasional snacks.
The sitting room provides a stunning view over the River Severn from the full length bay window, where you can sit and enjoy a leisurely meal whilst watching the wildlife on the banks and the ducks swimming past.
Easy access onto the river bank allows you to join the Severn Way, and follow its route, as it meanders alongside the river.
Alternatively a short stroll leads into the main heart of the town, where you can enjoy the shopping centre, all the major high street chains and numerous cafes, restaurants and bars, along with quaint Tudor buildings, narrow streets and alleyways.
Why not enjoy a boat trip on the river, or take in a play at Theatre Severn in the town?
