The week inside......................
We visited her last weeK, for 7 nights. We would have appreciated being notified that the outside space was now out of bounds,due to the hot tub being moved downstairs-it means that there is only 1 exit-the front door,in case of an emergency.I wonder if this is legal,due to H&S. The rest of the house was good-apart from the middle floor bedroom-the "owl" room-the bed mattress was very used-and the pieces of wood, placed on the frame,to act as a base, was a shock when it collapsed-with me in it, fast asleep-this needs urgent attention!!! It could have been a nasty wake up call!!! Im not sure I would rebook,due to the lack of outside space-and the hot tub cover needs replacing-it took 3 of us to put on/off, due to it being so broken! Silly things like this dont enhance the property!

Well worth booking
We stopped here for 3 nights for my dad's 70th Birthday. My sister, hubby, dad, wife and me and husband plus for kids and a dog all stayed here very comfortably. The view of the river was lovely, we was just a short walk into Shrewsbury itself and the house was clean and tidy. The kids did argue about the Xbox a lot but I guess that's what kids do. There was a big draw full of family games too. Our only issue was at the lion hotel restaurant, however thats another review.

Fabulous house in a perfect location
A group of 9 ladies stayed here for 3 nights for a 40th Birthday. The house is spread over 3 floors. All bedrooms are beautifully decorated, are a good size and all have a river view . Plus there is a double sofa bed with bedding available in the second sitting room on the ground floor. All bedrooms including the second sitting room were fitted with TVs. One shower room is on the ground floor and the second shower room is on the first floor. So those stopping in the 2 bedrooms on the second floor do have to come down a flight of stairs to access the toilet/ bathroom. Again bathrooms were luxurious and each guest was provided with a bath and hand towel. The ground floor has an open plan kitchen, lounge and dining room with large tv. There were enough seats/ sofas available. There are also bi fold doors leading to a very small yard. The hot Tub is located on the first floor and has seating available for those wanting to stay dry. Another great place to sit for adults, but wouldn?t be a great place for children to play. Cleaning chemicals etc were available for the hot tub in the utility area. We found there to be plenty of utensils, cutlery etc available in the kitchen including dishwasher tablets. You can Purchase one parking permit from the owner which is £15 for 3 nights. This allows you to park in the United Reform Church Car Park over the bridge and you don't have the have the inconvenience of having to keep putting money parking meter. However there are lots of NCP car parks are available literally a few min walk away. The house is located on the water front so you cannot park out the front at all. There is also no rear access to the property as the rear gate has been bricked up. There is a public loading /unloading bay located at the end of Julian's Crescent right near the main road leading to the bridge. However, we struggled to find this on arrival as the loading bay is only identified by faded painted writing on the road. So unloading the vehicles/ loading the vehicles took a few trips back and forth. Overall we absolutely loved this property, it is literally a stones throw from all the shops and restaurants, however back in the property/ hot tub it is very quiet with only the sounds of ducks in the river to be heard. Would love to re-visit x

Spacious and very scenic
Lovely spacious house with great view out of windows.Very clean with all mod cons, only criticism I would give is there is no PTO on the hot tub instructions on the notice board, so we knew nothing about sterilisation of the hot tub, the other thing we found was facilities in the kitchen were quite basic, no bread bin, lack of cooking utensils, no dishwasher tablets, so had to go out and buy things, those things aside though, I would still rate it a good house to stay in.

Great house and location
Visited with 7 family members for annual get together. Probably one of the best houses we have stayed in. House is well fitted out, nice bed linen and fluffy towels Great location, easy stroll to town and lovely river walks. Lots of nice pubs and eating places very near. We didn't use the hot tub. Hope to visit again next year.
