Dating from 1747 Marthas Cottage was built 30 years before the opening of the world famous Iron Bridge when the River Severn locally could only be crossed by ferry. The cottage has all modern amenities including a 3D & HD TV, surround sound and DVD player but it still retains its 18th Century olde-worlde character. The location is idyllic. Just off the main through route (The Wharfage) but with a view over the world famous bridge itself. The village square and its amenities are just 2 minutes away by charming alleyways, locally known as 'jitties'. Private parking for two cars. Accommodation consists of an oak-beamed living/dining room and a kitchen on the ground floor, with two elegant bedrooms. One double bedroom, a cosy twin bedded room and bathroom above. The kitchen contains a gas...Dating from 1747 Marthas Cottage was built 30 years before the opening of the world famous Iron Bridge when the River Severn locally could only be crossed by ferry.

About the neighbourhood
The perfect setting................ Situated on the sunny Southern slopes of the Ironbridge Gorge with private parking for two cars right outside the door. Marthas Cottage is perfectly located; away from the hustle and bustle of the main street but still only two minutes walk from the shops and the world famous Iron bridge.
