Things to Do

Luxury self-catering holiday accommodation, in the heart of the historic Ironbridge Gorge

River Cottages are a pair of beautifully restored, self-catering cottages. They date back to 1650, the time of the English Civil War, and are amongst the oldest buildings in the historical Ironbridge Gorge.

The location of the cottages is ideal for anyone who likes an easy stroll for something to eat and drink, who perhaps likes wooded walks, country cycling, or just enjoying the river. The area is steeped in history and the cottages sit just a 3 minute walk along the river from the Iron Bridge itself.

Both cottages can sleep 4 adults comfortably, each having one double and one twin bedded room. Families are welcome as are small parties of adults, although we are unfortunately unable to cater for pets and the cottages are strictly no smoking.

The cottages have been restored sympathetically, to retain their character and original features whilst also offering a high level of comfort.

The cottages are timber framed with stone frontages and hand made brick work in the interiors (bricks dating back to the 17th Century), all of which are exposed. The floors downstairs are oak (with rugs), there are quarry tiles in the kitchens, both have real fires (stoves) and all beds are hand made by a local metalwork craftsman.

Both cottages have modern kitchens, central heating, plentiful hot water, music systems, TV and DVD players and broadband internet access. They have enclosed, south facing sun terraces with relaxing garden furniture to unwind and watch the World go by.
