Our luxury self-catering holiday apartment, with parking, is located in the very heart of Shrewsbury, Shropshire and close to all of the town’s amenities. We are a few minutes walk from the beautiful Quarry Park, with the River Severn running through it and the feel of the country. We are located in a quiet residential street but also only a few minutes walk from the historic central market square with shops, bars and restaurants in the immediate locality.
The apartment is on Swan Hill in a conversion of Shrewsbury’s original Victorian police station. The building is Grade 11 listed. Swan Hill and its adjoining streets represent one of Shrewsbury’s prime residential areas, with many elegant Georgian Town houses and older properties.
