  • "We couldn't fault anything!"

    The house is beautifully presented, extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean with very comfy beds. It is in an ideal, peaceful location with an easy riverside walk into town. Contact with the owner was very pleasant and helpful, with amazingly quick response times.

    Shrewsbury amazing - passed through many times but this was the first time staying there. 1 parking space great for us. Bins in a safe building. Neighbours really friendly. Loved it - thank you :)

  • "We were a family of 6 and had a very enjoyable stay at the Engine Shed."

    An easy walk into Shrewsbury and several nearby pubs. The property was well designed and we were all impressed with the facilities provided. Despite trying very hard to find something that hadn't been provided, there was nothing else we could have wished for! When we arrived we were greeted with a welcome pack including milk, biscuits and fresh flowers.

  • "What a lovely welcome to the engine room."

    Super clean & tidy. Fresh flowers, milk in the fridge and a few treats too. A vast amount of towels so all rooms catered for. The very comprehensive book about the appliances etc as well as places to visit was incredibly helpful. The property itself offered plenty of room for all and the posh hand-wash & hand cream was delightful. I had one query regarding additional parking, Katie answered the phone promptly and offered ideas. The engine shed is very close to town and Shrewsbury itself is an absolute delight. I'd like to add that I am a support worker, I stayed at the property with 2 people with Down syndrome and they found the property very much a home from home. Great to have a washing machine and an airer to keep uptogether with the laundry. We absolutely loved our stay and I will definitely recommend to family & friends.

  • "Lovely quirky property over 3 floors."

    Everything was very good quality and there was everything you’d need. The shower was roomy and powerful. The bed was super comfortable. It was very quiet considering it’s in the middle of other properties. Lovely walk along the river into the town centre. Had a lovely time catching up with old friends

  • "An amazing stay in this beautiful property."

    The quality touches here elevate it from great to exceptional. The location for walking into Shrewsbury is ideal, I'd recommend the Riverside walk on a nice day it is glorious. Parking is easy at the property too. I can't think of a better place to stay when visiting Shrewsbury.

  • "We have stayed in many hundreds of self catering accommodation properties all over the UK; this ranks amongst the very best."

    Superbly equipped with all modern equipment, nothing short of perfect. The place can accommodate 6 adults. However, with only the one allocated parking slot should a second car be needed, parking nearby can be troublesome at peak times.

  • "A lovely house to stay in (plus a unique piece of history being a former engine shed) Cleverly laid out (absolutely loved the mezzanine kitchen) and very well furnished with everything you need in terms of kitchen equipment."

    Very comfy bed and lovely towels. We really could not fault this place at all! I had to contact the owner (Katie) with a couple of queries and she was really prompt to answer, friendly, and helpful. There is parking for one car but if you have more than one car in your party the station car park is only a 5 minute walk away and £22 for the week). It is a ten minute walk into Shrewsbury which is a superb town full of stuff to do and plenty of places to eat and drink. The Market Hall is a must as is the Prison. So to summarise, we would not hesitate to recommend The Engine Shed as a comfy base to unpack all of the treasures that Shrewsbury and Shropshire has to offer. 10/10.

  • "This is an outstanding property!"

    The owner Katie has thought of everything. There are lots of wonderful little touches that make this place extra special; a lovely welcome pack, books, games, hairdryer, fans to name a few. The kitchen has everything you could ever need if you wanted to cook a 3 course gourmet dinner (we didn't). The decor is wonderful and very tasteful and stylish. The beds were extremely comfortable with luxurious bedding! I didn't want to leave. As well as the above, the Engine Shed is in a perfect location to explore Shrewsbury, being only a very short walk into town. We had a wonderful 5 days stay. I would highly recommend this property and will definitely be returning!!!

  • "Great Accomodation."

    Comfortable and clean and tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac. Close to Town Centre, so easy to walk in to the local shops, restaurants and pubs. The main park in only a 10 min walk as well.

  • "An excellent, well equipped and lovely central property with everything you could wish for and more."

    One note is that we stayed in really hot weather and the towel rack in the main bathroom does not have an off switch that we could locate (and the ceiling fan didn’t work either) so it made the already hot upstairs bedrooms even hotter! The fans located in the bedrooms helped though.

  • "We booked the Engine Room based on the two excellent reviews posted on the Sykes website."

    However, after a long journey the first thing we had to do was clean the microwave, dishwasher and coffee machine as they were covered in food and were absolutely filthy (we have taken photographs). The welcome basket had a small marmalade jar in it which is clearly refilled and had covered the jar and everything in the basket with sticky marmalade. A small glass bottle of milk and orange was left in the fridge which, in the current circumstances of Covid is very unhygienic. The floor was also filthy, our socks were black and my daughter had a brown stain on her foot which wouldn’t come off even after scrubbing.

    Hello, I am shocked and disappointed to hear that you had such a bad experience and I can only sincerely apologise for this. The Engine Shed is cleaned by a professional cleaning company, who I have contacted regarding your review, and would appreicate it, if you could forward your photographs directly onto me, so that I can take the appropriate action. (You should have my mobile number & email address from Sykes) The contents of the Welcome Pack I source from a local farm shop each week. The marmalade jars are single use only, they are not refills, so I do not know why the pot was sticky. The complimentary milk & juice is provided for those who have not had chance to bring the essentials. I pride myself on receiving glowing reviews at both of my properties, with guests frequently commenting on presentation and quality being of the highest standards. Apologies once again for the issues that you have experienced. Property Owner

The property

Resting in the middle of Shrewsbury, Shropshire, moments away from the River Severn, is this stylish, mid-terrace holiday home of 6 The Engine Shed.

Like its namesake, this property is a converted engine shed that has been carefully renovated to a high standard to suit a family of six, whilst also sitting moments away from the train station.

On arrival, you'll be pleased to discover one allocated parking space, so you can get settled in and get your holiday started with ease.

Progress inside to find a tastefully appointed sitting room, where you can grab a seat on one of the plush options available and curl up with a book or switch on the TV to enjoy a movie night together.

After relaxing for a moment, climb the stairs to the first-floor kitchen/diner, a fabulous, mezzanine space with glass balustrades, where the chef of the family can rustle up culinary delights for all to enjoy.

Settle down to dinner at the nearby dining table, a spot that is perfectly lit by the original arched windows; why not open a bottle of wine to accompany your meal, you're on a getaway after all?

After dinner, unwind further in the sitting room or throw any old clothing into the nearby utility, before freshening up in the neighbouring cloakroom and climbing the stairs to the second floor, where three well-appointed bedrooms await.

The first of the bedrooms consists of a double benefiting from a TV along with access to an en-suite shower room, the second is a double and the third offers twin beds; All bedrooms have Velux windows!

Before setting out to explore your surroundings, make a coffee with the kitchen's handy coffee machine and take it out to the front garden, where you can lounge on a bench before wandering into the town.

Embark on a short walk into the town centre, where a fantastic selection of eateries await, including The Salopian Bar and The Armoury, alongside a plethora of independent shops boasting local wares.

Why not walk along the River Severn towards The Quarry, a park boasting gardens and green spaces for you to explore; alternatively, you could tour the fascinating landmarks of Shrewsbury Castle and Shrewsbury Prison?

For an idyllic outing, be sure to venture to Church Stretton, a market town within the Shropshire Hills AONB which enjoys access to walking trails stretching along Long Mynd, Carding Mill Valley and Haddon Hill.

Much Wenlock is also worth a visit, a town enjoying picturesque architecture and hosts the delights of Much Wenlock Museum and Wenlock Priory.

Venture back into the Shropshire Hills AONB to find even more outdoor havens packed with bridleways, walking trails and cycling routes.

A marvellous stay awaits at 6 The Engine Shed.
