House overview - owner's description

This house was renovated in 2009 (which took 14 months) making it a comfortable eco-friendly home within the town of Bridgnorth. The town is popular with many people from day trippers to holiday makers from all over the world.

The property has the benefit of two living rooms making this a great choice for families with teenagers or two families sharing. There are three double bedrooms and two bathrooms. Off road parking for three cars.

Both sitting rooms have wood burners. There is also underfloor heating on the ground floor. All bedrooms have TVs. The hot water is also supplemented by solar hot water and the property is well insulated to save energy.

Ample information is provided at the property on activities and how to get there by car or public transport (or walking for those within the town). There are many things to do with or without a car in the area. Some of them are described here and information about others can be found at the Tourist Information office. Some activities are also free of charge.

Bridgnorth is actually two towns - High Town and Low Town, linked by the steepest inland funicular railway in Britain. Low Town was once a thriving inland port. Charles I declared that the view from High Town was "The finest in all my Kingdom".

The remains of Bridgnorth Castle are set on a cliff by the side of the River Severn. Today the castle is little more than a ruin, comprising of a 70 foot tall, 12th century Norman tower and some other small stonework built in the time of Henry II. The tower leans at an alarming angle of 15 degrees, three times greater than that of the leaning tower of Pisa. This is due to an attempt to blow it up during the Civil War. Entrance to see the ruins and its beautiful gardens is free.

The Town Hall is open to the public (free) and the entrance is on the opposite site from the market area. Climb the stairs to visit the council chambers. The building was constructed in 1652 from a redundant tithe barn donated by a Lady Bertie from the town of Much Wenlock.

For the more adventurous, why not try an open top canoe trip on the river Severn with pub stop and steam train return (runs April to October).

Bridgnorth is also well known for its steam railway which has a few stops where you can hop on and off before reaching Kidderminster. There are also old fashioned pubs on the platforms. There is a visitor and education centre at the Engine House.

Entrance to the Northgate Museum is free and more can be learnt about the history of the town here, including how the town developed around the castle.

On Underhill Street you will find Lavington’s Hole, a series of sandstone caves and tunnels. The tunnels were made during King Charles I Reign. The town was under siege in 1646, during the Civil War and a Colonel Lavington had forces dig tunnels towards the church, where St. Mary’s stands and where Royalist explosives were stored. He intended to blow up the church, but the event never took place, after excavating a tunnel 70 feet long, the castle surrendered and the digging stopped.

There is a vast choice of pubs and restaurants in Bridgnorth with food to suit all tastes from traditional English to Spanish, Italian, Indian, Chinese etc. Bridgnorth is surrounded by places to visit, whether by car or by public transport. Just outside Bridgnorth is In the peaceful, scenic valley of the River Severn. The Severn Valley Country Park with free entry and special events programme offers over 51 hectares of beautiful countryside and wonderful views, spanning both sides of the River Severn. The Park has recently been awarded The Green Flag award which denotes an excellent Country Park.

For over four hundred years, the area was utilised for quarrying and the mining of coal, which was then transported to industrial centres using the river and later the railway. The first shafts were sunk in Highly in 1870, with the production switching to Alveley in 1936. After almost one hundred years, the mine closed in 1969. Work commenced to reclaim the area in 1986 and the Country Park was officially opened in 1992.

Private Owner From Bridgnorth, United Kingdom Member since Jun 2005

I am Head of Department in a UK school and have owned my property in Spain since 2005. I ensure high standards in my property e.g. by ensuring all mattresses are top quality and clean and I am available for advice. My property manager is reliable and helpful.

There is an abundance of information available in the property to help with ensuring a comfortable stay and where to find attractions/facilities. The property is perfect for those wanting a peaceful stay but only a short walk to amenities.

We were first attracted to this property by its beautiful construction and views from the sun terrace. The pool was also very inviting.
