lovely weekend stay in bridgenorth

  • 4 of 5

we had a great welcome from Bryan and a great stayin a lovely little cottage with a unique bonus of a donkey shed and a lovely view over lower bridgenorth,the cottage is well situated for the main town with a market every Saturday,there,s plenty of shops near by if you go short of anything,also plenty of places to have something to eat or to have a pleasant drink in one of it,s pubs. There is a steam train station nearby which you can take a ride and a lovely pub on the station.The only little thing wrong they did,nt have was a caffetiere as I love my coffee in the mornings but that,s a minor thing,but overall the cottage is well equipped and look forward to staying again thanks bryan ,jane
