“Gorgeous cottage, great attention to detail, perfect location”

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Lookout after a wonderful time spent there. The owner has really worked hard to make the place welcoming and comfortable, and there is everything you could possibly need. Lots of lovely little touches including soaps, nice fluffy towels and tea/coffee etc. meant that it felt more like a hotel stay than a self-catering one! The owner couldn't have been more helpful when we had a little hiccup with the keys and she has been incredibly helpful throughout the booking process etc. too. The location is perfect- literally a 2 minute walk to the Iron bridge itself, and a great view of it from the window too. All in all, a wonderful stay and certainly high on our list for a return visit in the future.

“Romantic cosy cottage”

Everything that was provided was well thought out. Also it was lovely to have the little extra touches added. This included slippers, tea coffee & gorgeous chocolate. Also in the bathroom there was a lovely welcome pack of soaps, shampoo ect. Dressing gowns lovely & soft. Everything was easy to find. We did have a slight problem getting the key from the safe outside. Once we put the combination in, we couldn't find how to open it. we eventually, after about half an hour we managed it. All in all a good week.

Thank you for your response but sorry to hear you had a problem with the key safe. You just have to pull the cover down once you have keyed the code in and the keys can be located inside.

Thank you for staying at The Look Out.

“Great little cottage.”

We have just spent 9 days in this great little cottage, and what a great time we had. The owners can feel very proud, there is everything with in the cottage that you could hope for, the kitchen contains everything, from a radio to first aid kit to dishwasher, the living dining area is very cosy with free view tv, books DVD,s to a xbox, bedroom lovely room and again very cosy, with a very well appointed bathroom. There is also a lovely outdoor sitting area, perfect for warm summer evenings. All in all the best cottage we have stayed in, and we have stayed in a few. It could not have been better situated for the town and eating house's and the museums, and the places to visit a little further afield. We will be back we loved it so much. So thank you to the owners for creating such a grand place to stay, see you soon.

This is a lovely cottage in an excellent location for exploring all of Ironbridge. The cottage itself is very cosy, with everything you could possibly need. The owners have really made an effort to make it welcoming, including touches like toiletries, tea and coffee and even a fresh pint of milk in the fridge when we arrived. Booking was easy and communications/directions etc. excellent. We had a wonderful stay and are hoping to come back soon.

“Excellent cosy cottage”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

people found this review helpful

The lookout cottage is an unexpected gem, within walking distance of the famous iron bridge it is ideally located for visiting all the ironbridge attractions.
The cottage itself is very cosy, and the owners have thought of every detail to make it a home from home, from the fluffy bathrobes & slippers to the tea & biscuits awaiting you. Plus it still has all the mod-cons such as a dishwasher and even an x box!
It's a shame it doesn't have it's own parking space but it wasn't far to walk to the nearby car parks as long as you didn't mind the steep walk back up again!

“Fabulous cottage, Beautiful location”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

people found this review helpful

I cant rate this cottage highly enough. The location is great with a fantastic view of the bridge from the bedroom window. The cottage has been resored to an excellent standard, with all modern conveniences you would have in your own home. The decor is "cottage style" with a very modern feel, every detail has been thoughtfully and beautifully incorporated in every room. It is very relaxing although only a few minutes walk to the bridge, shops, pubs and restaurants. I can recommend this cottage to anyone, It has a lovely homely feeling and you can either eat out or cook if you prefer, all cooking utencils and equiment are in avaialable to use in the fully equiped kitchen. The owners have taken great care to make this the perfect place to re-charge your batteries. There are also some lovely additional touches such as a selection of teas and coffee's with fresh milk on arrival, there are also products in the bathroom for guests to use. i will definately be recommending this cottage to friends and family and look forward to returning there ver soon
