300 yr oldHoliday cottage in Shropshire Hills ideal for Ironbridge and
Firstly OD list this property to be in Coalbrookdale or Telford. The former is 3 miles away.The latter is 8 miles.This cottage is semi rural and equidistant between Ironbridge and Much Wenlock.(2.5 Miles)
We have for the last 7 years let this holiday cottage and after renting an Owners Direct apartment ourselves we signed up with O.D. Our aim is to provide you with information to help you decide that the cottage is right for you. Previous guests have advised us of their stay and many have returned.
The holiday cottage which is pet free and no smoking status is a semi detached 300 year old grade 2 listed building set up from the road ( See Below) with its own access through landscaped gardens to include a very unique BBQ area with seating. Apart from the cottage next door(owners) there are no immediate neighbours. We are on hand for any issues including advice on local places to visit but we leave you alone to get on with your holiday time. There is an uninterrupted view of the Wrekin Hill and the cottage has fields to the rear and side.
Old with oak beams but with all modern amenities. The downstairs bathroom has a modern powerful shower (Separate cubicle) and a cast iron roll top bath. Upstairs in the large bedroom there is a modern basin.
Double glazed and centrally heated throughout meaning a cosy place to come 'home' to in the cooler months and well insulated to be cool inside when the weather outside is warm. There is a log burning stove for those extreme cool conditions.
The cottage was part of the owner's property but when the children fled the cottage was separated and is now back to the original set up being 2 cottages.
The furnishings are a mix of modern and antique. Upstairs is fully carpeted and downstairs the modern kitchen and living room has top quality travertine floor tiling.

Homely, welcoming and perfect location
The property is wonderful, not just because it is so well placed to visit such a wide range of places but also because of the beautifully maintained and decorated nature of the property. So comfortable and relaxing with lovely gardens and views. Mike and Rachel really care about the place as it is part of their family home and it continues to feel like that. Even though they are next door, the property has complete privacy and loads of space. They are incredibly thoughtful, have equipped the cottage superbly and provide excellent information about the area. We really strongly recommend this property and very much hope to return some day - certainly if we return to the area we will make sure we stay here.
Many thanks for your comments about the cottage and us! We certainly hope that you stay again and hopefully people that you recommend.
Our main aim is for guests to have a special holiday or break that they enjoy coming back to the cottage after days out to the many nearby attractions.
Thank you once again but still more to do.
Rachel and Mike
Lovely, comfortable, well-equipped cottage
More than enough space for four adults, nice grounds which we used well as the weather was so good. Good location for visiting Ironbridge and surrounding attractions. Hosts very friendly.
Perfect cottage in beautiful surroundings
A lovely, well equipped cottage with character. Extremely helpful and friendly hosts and super surroundings. So much to see in the area: we will return.
A delightful cottage beautifully modernised and immaculately maintained, full of lovely artistic touches. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you could possibly want. The views from both sides are lovely and the gardens a treat even in October. The owners are very friendly and helpful without being obtrusive and we arrived to milk and bread and fresh flowers - a lovely touch. The only drawback is that although the cottage is in the country, it is on the A road between Telford and Much Wenlock so there is traffic noise in the garden and front bedroom especially. However, judging by the visitors' book, this doesn't bother a lot of people as many have stayed in the cottage more than once.
Thank you for your kind comments.We do try to make your stay as enjoyable as possible by making the cottage somewhere pleasant to return to. The road at peak times can be busy and we are looking at soundproofing fencing and perhaps triple glazing as opposed to double. Thank you again for being perfect guests
We really enjoyed the situation and the appointments of the cottage it is full of very well detailed
We loved the position and ease acccesibilty to other parts of the county. The gardens are a particular feature. The appointments of the cottage in all ways are both quirky and comfortable we loved the views from the back bedroom over the fields to the woods with the cattle and bird life.
Not to mention Buffy the cat who was a constant companion. Overall we really enjoyed our stay so much we have booked for next year.
Thank you. We do try to make the experience a special one.A warm cosy cottage awaits when it is cold (it was for a few days) and a colourful patio and garden for the warm and sunny days.
The cottage may be semi rural but there are many interesting places in this area. searching Shropshire websites will give you plenty of information. The owners can help too with advice
