Situated on the banks of the River Severn, the village of Jackfield is situated one mile from the Ironbridge Gorge, home to the world's first iron-built bridge. Jackfield stands on the Wrekin Way footpath, which offers many scenic walks and cycle trails. Ironbridge boasts many pubs, restaurants, shops and tea rooms and a collection of industrial and Victorian themed museums, including Blists Hill Victorian Village. Also close by is Wenlock, Shrewsbury and Ludlow.

A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.

The cottage was just what we were looking for and would stay here again if we come back to the area. The cottage is on the river Severn within walking distance of many attractions including the local pubs.

Lovely, characterful cottage in a superb location for visiting Ironbridge and all that the area has to offer. The cottage itself was very well equipped and the owners have clearly thought about the comfort of their guests.

The cottage was exactly what we wanted. There was loads to do in the area and we will be returning there! It was very cosy, with a log fire and comfy furniture.

This was a very nice cottage with ample amenities for our use. The owners had gone to a lot of trouble providing lots of extra items and local info on the area.

Outstanding area of history with World Heritage Museums and excellent scenic walks within most capabilities. The super standard of the cottage accommodation, its peaceful location yet with all amenities close by. The owners have done a splendid job of caring about their customers.

The cottage is fantastic and full of character. It is warm and cosy and has a lovely homely feel. Fabulous location, friendly neighbours. The owners had provided a really nice welcome pack of all sorts of goodies and we were chuffed to get a call from them to check that we were ok. Can't recommend this place enough, it is a hidden delight!

The house was just right for us, and the owners had obviously put a lot of thought into what we would need over the week. I wanted to take the cooker home with me!

Great location, very peaceful but within walking distance of pubs and Ironbridge. Cottage very well equipped with a large comfortable lounge. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.

Wonderful place to relax, made to feel very welcome.
Mr Richardson

The cottage and its facilities were excellent. It is in an extremely quiet location which made it all the more relaxing. We didn't use our car from the moment we arrived as there are numerous walks directly from the property. Ironbridge is an easy 10-15 minute walk away. The cottage was very warm and cosy with the added bonus of an open fire and wood burner. We will definitely return!
Mrs Boyden

The location was perfect and the local amenities were within easy walking distance. The cottage was excellent and lighting the fire after being out in the snow, soon got us warm and cosy.
December 2015
As the title suggests, the cottage was perfect in every way and I've probably said it about another cottage but this one is the best I have stayed in to date..... The access road to the property was more a river than a road but I can't let that reflect negatively on the owners as they can't control the weather and alternative parking was offered close by. The welcome pack was exceptional and enjoyed by my wife and myself and our dog. The location of the cottage is central to everything in the locality and only time stopped us doing more. Will definitely be back if the opportunity arises. Thank you to the owners for a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

What an absolutely beautiful cottage in a superb location. A well appreciated welcome pack of food was waiting for us when we arrived. The cottage itself is ideal for all the local museums (we managed 7 out of the 10) - will have to go back to complete them all! Jackfield Tile Museum within about 50 yards of the cottage an absolute must. The only minor drawback was the fact that the road from Jackfield to Ironbridge was under repair and our nightly walk to eat was a little hair raising to say the least (no pavement and very narrow road). An added bonus was the wonderful neighbour and dog!

We stayed here as we wanted to be local to Ironbridge, but a little out of the way of the parking issues in the town. The cottage surpassed our expectations. We have stayed in many cottages around the country and this one is one of the best. The location, near to the Tile Museum is perfect for local pubs (all of which do good food, and accept dogs) and visiting the local attractions. There is plenty of dog walking. The old railway line is convenient for gentle strolls in either direction. The surrounding countryside offers everything else. Shropshire has a lot to offer. we used to live in the area and there is still a lot we haven't covered. The welcome pack was lovely, and all sourced locally. Fresh bread, marmalade, coffee, eggs, bacon, sausages... and even treats for the dogs. I haven't received a welcome pack like this before. The cottage was well equipped with all you would need in the kitchen, towels for the bathroom, a hairdryer, a dog bowl and towel. Again, all you would need for a break. The sitting room was comfortable and had a vast variety of books and DvDs for those quieter moments, or when the weather is not on your side. The little garden overlooking the river is beautifully kept and lovely for alfresco drinking. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage - though the stairs are not for small children or the less mobile.

This cottage is great for visiting the Ironbridge gorge museums it is very peaceful and well appointed. We arrived to find a welcome pack containing bread, butter, jam, and a bottle of wine. In the fridge was bacon, sausage, eggs, and milk. What a nice touch from the owners. The rooms were all well equipped and clean.

Quiet location very close to the attractions that we had planned to visit. The cottage had a lovely garden next to the river Severn to enjoy a glass of wine a meal in the evening, if we didn't go the the local pub which was walking distance from the cottage.
