  • "Thoroughly enjoyed staying in the Saltbox."

    Loved the additional history in the welcome book too. Although no parking at property, we used Listley Street car park which was a couple of minutes walk & reasonably priced. Property had everything we needed. Other reviews commented on the noise down the Cartway but this was nothing more than good natured chat of people going home after weekend nights out & was minimal as people walked by. Hosts were excellent and the offer of breakfast at their B&B business up the road was most welcome & delicious! Saved us cooking & cleaning on last morning of our stay. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

  • "On the plus side the location is perfect,the cottage was warm and the Owner had left some essentials in the fridge."

    On the minus side the lounge is tiny and although there was only three of us we didn’t find it comfortable.There seems to be some issues with the electrics non of the bedroom ceiling lights worked the double socket by the Toaster only worked on one outlet and there was a lot of extension leads in all the rooms.I understand that the property is very old but you do worry from the safety aspect.Also the bathroom floorboard need to be screwed down properly if anyone used the bathroom at night the whole house was awake.Bridgenorth is a lovely town and we would return,but not to this property

  • "The house is really lovely and had everything we needed."

    Unfortunately the Cartway seems to be the main walking route for drunks heading down to (and back from) the pubs, who bang on the doors and windows of the cottages they pass whilst shouting obscenities, which was unpleasant and scary, especially for our kids. It happened every night we were there. This is such a shame as the location is otherwise perfect - the kids loved the toy shop, sweet shop and waffle/ice cream place just up the road. Everything was in a short walk, and the cottage was a perfect size for a family of 5 (and the bathroom is quite big, and the shower lovely). I don't think there's anything the owners could have done to resolve the problem, so I feel bad writing it in feedback, but it's worth other families with young children (especially neurodiverse ones) being aware.

  • "Awesome location and very well appointed town house over 3 floors."

    Owner was very responsive to a few niggles that were quickly rectified and the provision of a few small breakfast items was very welcome - although we had brought our own :D The Saltbox location was ideal for exploring the upper old town and riverside, plus the little boutiquey shops were great. Parking at the long stay car park adjacent to Sainsbury's is best at £3 per day but be warned that unloading outside the property on a very narrow road had better be done quickly as quite a few cars use that route!

The property

Resting in the town of Bridgnorth, only a short walk from many shops and pubs, is this fabulous mid-terrace cottage, The Saltbox.

Whether you have a couple’s retreat in mind, or are planning an adventure with family, this inviting abode offers three floors of excellence, ensuring a truly relaxing stay at any time of year.

Enter into the living/dining room, complete with homely furnishings including the wooden flooring and fabulous gas fire/stove, ideal for those chilly winter months, whilst a dining table is where all can gather for mealtimes.

Move into the kitchen, compact in size but offering all you could need for a self-catered break, including an gas oven and hob, microwave and fridge, so you can prepare home-cooked meals when you’re not dining at a fine Bridgnorth restaurant.

The first floor hosts a double bedroom and a delightful bathroom, so you can get ready for the day in style.

The second floor is equally as desirable presenting a family room with a super king sized bed leading onto a single bedroom/dressing room, perfect for accommodating families.

Stroll the quaint streets of Bridgnorth, popping in and out of the independent stores in search for a bargain, before stopping off at a pub or restaurant to quench your thirst and sample a delicious meal.

Stroll towards the River Severn, just a minute’s walk away, where you can discover the striking Lavington’s Hole or take a scenic ride up the clifftops on the historical Bridgnorth Cliff Railway.

History buffs will enjoy visiting the 16th century Elizabethan manor, Upton Cresset Hall or the remains of Bridgnorth Castle, a 12th century structure that was demolished upon Oliver Cromwell’s orders.

Set in a fantastic location that allows visitors to immerse themselves in centuries worth of history, The Saltbox also makes the ultimate base for exploring surrounding towns and countryside in Shropshire.

About the location


Much Wenlock 8 miles; Ironbridge 15 miles; Shrewsbury 20 miles; Ludlow 20 miles; Church Stretton 20 miles.

The market town of Bridgnorth lies in two very distinct halves - the High Town and the Low Town - separated by the red sandstone ridge on which the town is built. The two halves are connected by winding streets and flights of steps, or there is always the steep funicular railway, enabling the weary traveller to glimpse what Charles I called "the finest view in all my kingdom". A bustling Saturday street market provides an ample excuse to explore the town and examine the castle ruins, which lean at a greater angle than the Leaning Tower of Pisa! Flowing below is the River Severn, providing many pleasant riverside walks. The Severn Valley Railway runs between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster, and runs a variety of steam and diesel engines through picturesque country stations. In the areas surrounding Bridgnorth, there are a wealth of country parks, impressive houses, museums and picturesque Shropshire villages, as well as easy access to The Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford, and Ironbridge Gorge, with its 10 museums and striking landscape. The area offers excellent walking, and with the popular destinations of Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Church Stretton all within easy reach, it is ideal for a visit any time of the year.
