Garden Cottage, Bridgnorth

Welcome to luxurious, country based self-catering in South Shropshire – in the middle of town.

Garden Cottage is a listed, double-fronted town house on one of Bridgnorth’s loveliest streets, and despite the “cottage” name is actually a comfortable family home.  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 can spread over to 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 (no through-traffic!) in the historic High Town close to the many shops and amenities of the High Street.  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.
