Description

Dating from 1747 Marthas Cottage was built 30 years before the opening of the world famous Iron Bridge and when the River Severn locally could only be crossed by ferry.

The cottage has all modern amenities but it still retains its 18th Century olde-worlde character. The best of both worlds, old and new.

The location is just perfect, off the main through route but with a view over the world famous bridge itself. The town square and its amenities are just 2 minutes away by charming alleyways, locally known as 'jitties'. With private parking for two cars and the museums within a two mile radius it all adds up to the ideal place to spend your holiday.

Accommodation consists of an oak-beamed living/dining room and a kitchen on the ground floor, with one elegant double bedroom, one cosy twin bedded room and a bathroom above.

NOW EQUIPPED WITH A LARGE 3D TV (42”) AND A SELECTION OF 2D and 3D DVDs

The kitchen contains a gas hob, electric oven,

Location description from owner

The England region

f you love unspoilt countryside, visiting historic towns, experiencing a sense of the past, enjoy good food, exercise and entertainment, then Shropshire is for you.

So many people have written about Shropshire, yet so few know where it is or what makes it so seductive. But beware, those who are intrigued enough to visit are instantly captivated and guaranteed to return!

First time visitors are always amazed at just how much there is to see and do in the county!

Key attractions include the Severn Valley Railway, the RAF Museum, at Cosford and the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site. Visit the remains of Roman Cities, Medieval Castles, Ancient Churches and much more....

Ironbridge Gorge

The Ironbridge Gorge
Tourist Information and Visitor Guide

"A World Heritage Site set in a beautiful wooded valley in the heart of the Shropshire countryside"

One of Shropshire's top attractions, the Ironbridge Gorge is known throughout the world as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.

But please do not be deceived by our heritage. Nowadays the area is far from industrial. Although the revolution started here, most of the factories are long gone and the natural beauty of the Gorge has been restored.

Beyond the Museums

Of course many of our visitors are attracted to the superb Victorian themed museums operated by the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust.

However the Gorge is a splendid attraction in its own right.

Nature has reclaimed most of the former industrial sites, leaving us with a unique and beautiful wooded valley. The gorge is a now a maze of footpaths, bridleways and country lanes.

The former homes of the Victorian Iron Masters and their workers can still be found in the communities around the Gorge. But no longer will you find the grimy back streets, or rows of chimneys belching back smoke. Nowadays the old homes are set in the picturesque villages and hamlets dotted across the valley.

Beyond the Gorge and the Museums you have the beauty of Shropshire to explore, with medieval towns, spectacular scenery gardens and historical sites dating back over 2,000 years.

Our hope in producing this guide is to persuade you to spend a little more time with us and perhaps to explore the rich and diverse environment that exists beyond the industrial heritage and museums of the gorge.
