    “Five star, centrally-located, super-clean, super-equipped, super-chilled, super-happy...”

    We have been visting Shrewsbury every spring and autumn, for the last 7 years. ...

    We have been visting Shrewsbury every spring and autumn, for the last 7 years. Over that time, we’ve stayed in 2 different coach houses, 1 ‘flat’, and 1 carriage house. That’s about 12 stays in 4 accommodations. All have been great stays, so I count ourselves lucky. But we think that The Carriage House just about edges it to be overall winner. Mainly because it’s so central - as in minutes - and that’s on foot. Definitely don’t be put off if you check it out on a StreetView online map - despite looking slightly crammed in to one side by taller buildings, it’s very, very quiet (double-glazed, and tucked away in a corner from the main streets). Our other accommodations were 1 mile or 6 miles out of town, but walking home after a night out in Shrewsbury to the Carriage House takes literally minutes, and no driving’s required. No parking’s required, either, as there is an allocated spot right outside your front door - a very big plus in £10-a-day-parkingsbury. Here are some things that put it 'a cut above’: Coffee machine and PLENTY of pods. We got through 2 boxes between us - sorry, Karen, but I DID descale the machine for you, afterwards! ; - ) Lots of teas to choose from, too, and plenty of them. Many, many ‘extras’: ear plugs (not needed): bed socks (not needed): dishwasher (needed, in our case, despite us eating out every night); washer/dryer (not used); plenty of luxury bath stuff and big towels: a battery candle in a glass case; spare batteries for everything, TV sound bar (not very good but you can’t win ‘em all, can you?); Netflix; Freeview; good wifi; lots of bright, but dimmable, lighting; good, and very new, décor; ceiling beams; Velux window; plenty of space for four; round windows (take care if any kids are around, but the ’upstairs living’ layout means this accommodation is maybe not 100% recommended for younger toddlers, although there IS a stairgate on request); parking right outside; on-arrival sweet snack / jam / milk / butter / water / wine! Everything also just works, and no blown bulbs, which makes a nice change in certain accommodations (not in Shrewsbury, they must appreciate their lighting there). All bulbs, even dimmables, are LED - hurrah, looking after our world! (And our work/life/bank balance.) Having 2 bathrooms (both downstairs, but one is en-suite) is a real bonus for 2 couples - in our case, me and Mrs C; plus our grown-up youngish son and his wife. The Carriage House also gets their vote, out of all the accommodations we’ve seen. Plan the last few minutes of your arrival journey well, as there are one-way road systems in the area. But that’s not really a biggie. If walking from the station, that’s do-able in 10-15 minutes. Take the road by the river, then turn left just before the big bridge over the river. There are cafes, restaurants, and bars just minutes away from TCH on foot, with even more choices, plus shopping, a few minutes further on. The cottage is very warm and cosy in spring / winter, if that’s what you want, with slider-adjustable electric rads and towel rails everywhere. I can’t comment on whether the location is maybe too warm for midsummer visiting. (No aircon, but a fan / fans are probably available, and there are plenty of windows that we did not test out for opening.) Spring and autumn stays (but not in school holidays) will get you much better prices, but that’s the same everywhere, whether in Shrewsbury or beyond. So… The Carriage House is very well recommended!
