Loved this cottage. Ideally situated just two minutes from the centre. Cosy and well appointed. Bryan has thought of everything. We rent a lot of cottages and rarely give a ten out of ten, but this gets top marks. We'll be back!
Characterful Cottage in Delightful Town
Charming, tastefully decorated and well equipped Donkey Shed Cottage is an ideal base for exploring Bridgnorth and the surrounding area. Full of character but with all mod cons for a comfortable stay. Good communication from the owner and easy check-in/key collection. I have no hesitation in recommending this property.
The Donkey Shed Cottage is a lovely place
Bryan checked us in & explained about all the facilities in the cottage, I would definitely recommend a stay it’s a beautiful little in a superb location.
Great little cottage
We stayed at Donkey Shed Cottage for a week in October 2018 and really enjoyed our stay. Bryan was at the cottage when we arrived and showed us everything we would need and also where we could park,which was just at the end of the Cartway (parking permits are needed but Bryan had sorted this for us).The cottage itself was very clean,cosy & warm and with it’s little garden it had everything we needed for 2 adults & doggy. Bridgnorth is a lovely market town and Donkey Shed Cottage is very central making it easy to walk to most places.
Perfect in every way!
Such a cute little cottage with all the comforts of home. Bryan was very adaptable when our plans for arrival changed at the last moment and made us feel welcome when we arrived. Location was perfect with easy parking available. Donkey Shed is just a short 1 minute walk down from the High Street with wonderful views towards Low Town and the river from the back of the cottage. Although Cartway was very busy with late nighters on the Friday and Saturday night/early morning, a peaceful night's sleep was no problem because the bedroom was at the back of the cottage with a very comfortable bed! The kitchen was well equipped for the prep of simple meals and the lounge was a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the log burner with an array of lighting choices. Do not miss the amazing lantern light by the fire! I want one! The stairs were very steep and perhaps not for those with mobility issues.
Donkey Shed was a wonderful find. We loved our stay .
