The Lookout description

Holiday home
The Lookout is a charming, semi-detached cottage, set in an elevated position in Ironbridge, half a mile from the centre, down a steep, secluded lane. With one king-size double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, the property can accommodate two people. There is also a kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area, while outside is a steeply terraced patio with furniture. You can pull up at the top of the lane to load and unload the car, then find a spot to park in one of the local car parks, the nearest being just 300 yards away. The owner will provide a parking permit for these car parks and will leave it in the kitchen ready for your arrival. The Lookout is a lovely romantic retreat for enjoying this beautiful area of Shropshire.

In a quiet location but with lots to do nearby. It was ideal for a couple.

A lovely cottage just above Ironbridge and within walking distance of all the local amenities. It was very well furnished. There is a lovely little patio outside to enjoy a cup of tea in the early spring sunshine, and great walking routes straight from the door. We greatly enjoyed our stay. Ironbridge is a fabulous place to visit; full of history, charm and lovely pubs and walks. Thank you!

The cottage was delightful, a real gem. It was warm and comfortable. One of the best we have stayed in to date and we hope to go again next year. The town is a few minutes walk downhill with very good cafes, shops and restaurants.

What a wonderful cottage in a perfect location. Everything you needed was there, even the smallest things you are likely to forget to pack, you will find it all. I shall be visiting again.
