  • "Lovely 2 bedroom cottage in a great location right in the heart of Shrewsbury."

    Spotlessly clean, nicely decorated with everything you need here. Large well fitted kitchen and comfy bedrooms and lounge. 2 mins walk to the river and 5-10 minutes into town. Swimming pool and park just across the foot bridge with various pubs and restaurants a short walk away. Parking space is a bonus although maybe a little tight for larger cars but very handy. Some building work going on next door but didn’t cause us any inconvenience. Happy to recommend and would definitely like to go back. Thank you for lovely stay.

    It is one of many visits to Severn Way cottage and I never fail to be impressed with its immaculate interior. Cleanliness is second to none, the kitchen well equipped and the bed extremely comfortable. It is also bonus to have two bathrooms. Beautifully situated for strolls in the stunning Quarry Park and close to many attractive amenities in Shrewsbury.

    The property was comfort and had everything we needed. We loved the location and being so close to the town centre and beautiful walks. The interior was tastefully decorated and had plenty of seating. It was nice being spread over three floors and a bonus to have 2 bathrooms. The only issue was parking at the back was a little tight, but with so much to do in town we barely used the car. Highly recommend the town and this property.

    Excellently equipped. If we had to find a flaw -- and this is a sign of how good everything else was -- it's that the ceiling light fixture in the lounge was a bit low for our two 6-footers, and we each banged our heads a few times. Great location as well in Frankwell -- a short stroll over the Severn into the heart of Shrewsbury. Would definitely stay again.

    The house was amazingly equipped, clean and extremely comfortable throughout. Its location meant access to many things, either by foot or a short drive away. Our visits included a National Trust Property in Staffordshire. The RAF Museum at Cosford. Iron Bridge and the Victorian Centre.

    Attractively decorated and very well equipped. Very comfortable, including mattresses, sofas etc. All appliances worked perfectly. Extremely clean and well maintained. Warm and cosy. Very clear instructions / information booklet provided for guests. We would highly recommend staying here. (Probably not suitable for guests with accessibility issues as the staircases are a little steep and the property is on three floors. This was not an issue for us though and is just an observation which we hope might be helpful to potential guests).

    It is ideal for the beautiful park and town. SevernTheatre is near by and worth a visit . Lovely river walks on the Severn way and just down the road from cottage. This is an ideal accommodation for couples or those with older children but definitely not for toddlers or semi disabled as two flights of stairs. One from kitchen and bathroom up to dining room and sitting room. The other up to 2 bedrooms and shower room /toilet.A small garden with outdoor furniture. Keypad locked gate to garden so very private. We would definitely recommend this cottage. Been twice and will be back.

    The location of the cottage is perfect for riverside walks and strolls in Shrewsbury's scenic park, The Quarry; both just a few minutes away. The property is clean, well equipped and comfortable, while the enclosed garden creates a safe space for doggie guests. I love the historic town with its independent shops, cafes, restaurants, independent cinema and theatre. Ludlow, with its artisan market, castle and historic centre is a must. Haughmond Hill, Attingham Park, Church Stretton, Mich Wenlock and Ellesmere Lake offer both beautiful walks and delightful cafes. Further afield Chester with its original rows provides a stunning day out. I am already planning my next visit to Severn Way Cottage.

The cottage is ideally situated for a quick walk into Shrewsbury through the park which is directly behind. For a convenient evening meal or drink we would recommend The Armoury. The staff are all very welcoming and efficient. Places we visited and would recommend are Attingham Park, Dudmaston Hall (if possible do the art tour it is so interesting especially the Spanish section), Chirk Castle and Chirk aqueduct, of course Ironbridge and museums. If you like walking then you have to do Carding Mill Valley and Long Mynd. We were so lucky with the weather. Absolutely beautiful panoramic views. Once again thank you for a wonderful week!

Severn Way cottage was immaculately clean-its pristine condition is instantly apparent. It is comfortable and has everything you could require. A sympathetic renovation has been carried out and I loved staying there. Instructions for appliances and the location of the cottage are clear.

The property

An impressive Victorian cottage with accommodation set over three floors standing at the centre of the heritage town of Shrewsbury, Severn Way Cottage is a superb choice for two couples or friends seeking to explore this desirable area of Shropshire.

The cottage is just 100m from the famous Boat House pub and Port Hill Suspension bridge crossing the Severn to the Quarry Park.

Step into the welcoming dining hall – a multi-functional space for formal dining, home working, reading or board games.

Follow the room through into the equally inviting sitting room where an electric woodburning-effect fire awaits to warm you up after each day of adventure, with views over your own private garden.

Follow the stairs down to the lower ground floor to find a spacious kitchen/diner making a wonderful social spot to toast to a terrific holiday as your homemade meal simmers on the hob, a good range of appliances found here to assist you on a week-long stay.

The lower ground floor is also home to a stylish bathroom where you can indulge in a relaxing soak, while up on the first floor rests a shower room, offering guests plenty of space to prepare for the day.

The first floor is also where you can find two beautifully presented bedrooms; with one double and one king-size both complete with ornate fireplaces, they ensure a lovely spot to rest in between each fun-filled day.

For added flexibility there is a sofa bed for two in the sitting room.

Pull on your shoes and take the short stroll into the town of Shrewsbury, following the soothing sounds of the flowing River Severn offering plenty of scenic spots to enjoy a picnic, with plenty of shops for picking up any essential snacks, or treat yourself to a dining experience in one of the many cafés, pubs, and restaurants, catering to all tastes with a wide range of cuisines to choose from. Being a heritage town, you can expect to find plenty of beauty all around, with 600 listed buildings to marvel at, as well as rich history to uncover through attractions such as Shrewsbury Abbey, home to the fictional Brother Cadfael, Shrewsbury Castle with its breath-taking gardens to roam and the Shropshire Regimental Museum, while Quarry Park is also well-worth exploring for its impressive annual Shrewsbury Flower Show! Be sure to spend a day at the nearby National Trust-owned Attingham Park too, an 18th century estate with 200 acres of parkland and Regency Mansion to discover, it makes a fantastic day out for all ages.

Ludlow is just a scenic drive away where you can find even more exceptional eateries, or spend a day in Telford for a day of shopping and finding the perfect souvenir for your loved ones back home.

For those seeking outdoor adventure the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a must, with a plethora of scenic walking and cycling routes alongside an abundance of outdoor activities, it's well-worth exploring at any time of the year!
