Garden Cottage, Bridgnorth, Shropshire (Sleeps 1-6)

Garden Cottage is a listed, double-fronted, small town house on one of Bridgnorth’s loveliest streets in Shropshire.

The holiday cottage offers exceptional accommodation, rated 5 star by Shropshire Tourism, 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.

The spacious living room is a through room with French windows leading to the patio and garden and is furnished with a Clearview wood-burning stove and equipped with TV, DVD/Blu-ray player and ipod/MP3 docking station.

The dining room, with a doorway into the garden, leads to a modern well-equipped kitchen area (with fridge/freezer, electric cooker, extractor fan, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher). Opening off the hall are a wet room and a small study/library with computer and Wi-Fi. Ample storage space for luggage, etc, is available in the basement where a tumble dryer is also provided.

Up the staircase (twelve treads, fairly steep, but furnished with a hand-rail) are three charming bedrooms. The first, overlooking the garden, is a twin-bedded room with en suite facilities.

The second is a double, looking east across to the attractive seventeenth-century Castle Governor’s House. The third also faces east and can be set up as a double or twin room. Both these front rooms are served by the newly equipped Victorian bathroom just across the landing.

The sunny west-facing garden, enclosed by brick walls, is well planted with mature shrubs, climbers and ground-cover, including a fine Amelanchier Canadensis, with white blossom in spring and golden leaves in autumn. A view of St Mary’s church tower can be had from the lawn. The large patio provides ample space for outdoor meals in fine weather.
