Property Description

This large sandstone 17th-century holiday cottage stands detached on the banks of the River Severn with stunning views of the Severn Valley from both the house and the delightful lawned garden. It is located just 50 yards from Highley station and the Engine House Museum on the Severn Valley Railway, with steam trains running past the rear of the cottage. Journey from Marylebone station and change at Kidderminster to complete the fabulous journey by steam train. It is a perfect location for exploring the beautiful Severn Valley with its many footpaths, bridleways and river walks, with the famous Severn Way passing directly in front of the cottage and a country park just 50 yards away. This famous stretch of Stanley Water on the River Severn is one of the most prolific for barbel fishing in the country, producing barbel to 17lb on the BAA stretch of water outside the cottage. There are also two day ticket stretches at £5 per day, and lots of local carp fishing lakes. Highley 18-hole golf course is just a 5-minute walk and there are five other courses within a 15-minute drive. The West Midlands Safari Park is a 15-minute drive away, and this property makes an excellent base for visiting Bridgnorth, Bewdley, Ludlow, Worcester, Ironbridge, Wenlock Edge and the Long Mynd, all within an hour’s drive. Shop 3/4 mile, pub 500 yards.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This property is in a beautiful setting right on the river Severn. The house was fabulous and everyone thought that the property was very well equipped for a larger party. The house was ideally separated so that everyone had their own space. The games room was particularly special and was the main centre for family activity. We would love to return to this house at some point in the future. Dec 2012.
  2. Delightful setting overlooking the river and surrounding countryside. Plenty of space to spread out in and the owners were very helpful. May 2012.
  3. A lovely place - not too pristine that you felt you could not relax but certainly a very high standard of accommodation. We would definitely stay again in this accommodation. April 2012.
  4. Lovely location, excellent cottage beautiful. Would visit again. Dec 2011.
  5. Brilliant place for dogs - we walked for miles. Loved the location - gorgeous views across the valley. Everyone enjoyed the railway and used it for visits, walks and pubs. Young and old made the most of the pool table in the games room. What else can I say - fantastic place! Oct 2011.
