  • "We enjoyed our stay at The Old Meadow."

    It is very handy for the town centre and for lovely walks along the river. It’s also handy for the train station which is only a 15 minute walk away. The property is comfortable, well furnished and has good heating which was important as there was a cold snap while we were staying there. There were good facilities but it would have been useful to have some instructions for the dishwasher, oven etc. Also a bath mat would have been useful as the bath is quite slippy. It was nice to have some tea, coffee, milk and Prosecco provided but the Welsh cakes were missing!

    Thank you. We do welcome and respond to feedback to help us improve the offer. Good to hear you found the property warm and comfortable during the cold snap and you found the facilities were ok. I've noted what you said on the other items and we'll aim to address those. Glad you enjoyed your stay overall. Property Owner

The property

This contemporary, second-floor apartment sits in a large, gated development in the heart of Shropshire.

Located on the former site of Shrewsbury Town Football Club, the quaintly named Gay Meadow, The Old Meadow is a contemporary, development of apartments and town houses nestling alongside the River Severn and adjacent to the picturesque English bridge.

Situated just a short walk from a range of shops, pubs, and restaurants, 122 The Old Meadow is a great place to call home for a group of four looking to experience this part of Shropshire.

After a day out, guests can relax back at the apartment with their own home cooked meal in front of the TV.

The fully fitted kitchen is well equipped with a double oven and hob, microwave, and fridge/freezer.

Alternatively visit the numerous eating places catering for a wide variety of tastes and cuisines within easy walking distance of the property.

Make your way to the bathroom for a freshen up, choosing between a bath or shower over, before heading to the bedrooms.

Bedrooms will feature a double and twin arrangement,(zip/link, can be king-size on request).

Its setting on the river and central position makes 122 The Old Meadow the perfect base for exploring the County town of Shropshire and surrounding countryside, with the wild hills and scenery in the south of the county within easy reach.

Wander into the local town of Shrewsbury, where you can explore a range of attractions; take a step back in time at the 11th-century Shrewsbury Castle, wander the beautiful riverfront park and grounds of The Quarry or visit the Victorian Shrewsbury prison, which was decommissioned in 2013.

Crossing the bridge leads you directly into the ancient town and its lovely old streets which were chosen as a stand in for 19th century London in the new BBC version of Charles Dickens’ ‘Great Expectations’.

The author is known to have visited the town several times and it was also the backdrop for the 1984 production of A Christmas Carol.

Shrewsbury has made several appearances in the Sunday Times ‘Best places to live’ listings which highlighted its ‘excellent array of independent shops bars and restaurants’.

If it’s breath-taking scenery you’re after, head to the Shropshire Hills AONB, boasting endless walking and cycling trails, along with pretty Church Stretton, both of which provide a superb day out.

Choose 122 The Old Meadow for an unforgettable escape to Shropshire.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
