Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Ironbridge, Ironbridge Gorge, Shropshire, England
Dating from 1747 Marthas Cottage was built 30 years before the opening of the world famous Iron Bridge when the River Severn locally could only be crossed by ferry.

The cottage has all modern amenities including a 3D & HD TV, surround sound and DVD player but it still retains its 18th Century olde-worlde character.

Accommodation consists of an oak-beamed living/dining room and a kitchen on the ground floor, with two elegant bedrooms. One double bedroom, a cosy twin bedded room and bathroom above.
The kitchen contains a gas hob, electric oven, combination micro...

Lovely cottage ideally placed in the wonderful town of Iron bridge. Easy walks into town about 100m down hill and you in the center. Not so easy walk back! Actually it's not that bad but if you have mobility problems bear in mind the hill is step so is the garden. The cottage itself is small but perfectly suited to...

We had a great time in the cottage; blessed with good weather we could open the half-door and look out over the gorge in the sunshine. We had everything we needed - beds were comfortable and kitchen was well supplied. The owners were very helpful and there were no organisational issues. Only gripes were that the shower isn't great, and...

The perfect setting................
Situated on the sunny Southern slopes of the Ironbridge Gorge with private parking for two cars right outside the door. Marthas Cottage is perfectly located; away from the hustle and bustle of the main street but still only two minutes walk from the shops and the world famous Iron bridge.
