Garden Cottage is a listed, double-fronted, small town house on one of Bridgnorth’s loveliest streets. It offers exceptional accommodation to those who wish to get away from it all without leaving behind the comforts of modern living and the convenience of nearby shops and the other facilities of the town. It can sleep six, in three bedrooms. A larger party may like to consider making an additional booking at Churchdown House, the bed and breakfast property next door, which can also accommodate six and is under the same management.
Bridgnorth is a friendly and charming market town, evoking the atmosphere and way of life of earlier times, set on the borders of rolling South Shropshire countryside. The town is divided between High Town built on a sandstone bluff some 200 feet above the valley of the River Severn and Low Town on the banks of the river. Garden Cottage is conveniently located in a quiet cul-de-sac in the historic High Town close to many shops and amenities. A delightful park and the evocative ruins of Bridgnorth Castle are moments away.
In the locality are excellent opportunities for fishing and several good golf courses which welcome visitors. The World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, birthplace of the industrial revolution, with over a dozen museums and the famous Blists Hill Victorian Village, is just eight miles distant and many other visitor attractions are within easy reach. The Severn Valley steam railway runs for sixteen miles to Kidderminster with many stops along the river providing varied walks and villages and country parks to explore.

Our second stay here. Great to return. We had a lovely time on the train and explored the High Street. RAF Cosford is amazing…Bridgnorth is such a great place to stay!
Comment on airbnb:
A charming cottage in a fabulous location – so central for the cliff railway, market, shops, restaurants, yet quiet and peaceful (no through road). There was ample space for 6 (we didn’t even use the living area much as the kitchen area was spacious enough for us all to congregate
there) and the beds were very comfy. Alison has thought of everything
you could need, but is just next door in case you need anything else.
Families from Australia, Germany, Norway:
This has been the most lovely cottage to visit. We have loved every part of it, particularly the beautiful garden.
We really loved staying in Garden Cottage for the Christmas week. It has become our home and we don’t want to leave!
Back in our second home!
