I liked the stay VERY much. Big flat, all clean, some grosseries for us. Very kindly. We were very contant. Thank you!
Stayed for three nights in this lovely big apartment. Carl, the owner, was very helpful from the start of booking, through to leaving. Advising on best route of travel, offering advise on parking, ( once he had met us in person at property,) and walking us back through town, pointing out sights / shops / restaurants etc. He was v. understanding that our scheduled arrival was delayed by an hour ( M6 traffic ! ) Shrewsbury is a beautiful town. Zillions of great eating / watering holes, all within v.easy walking distance of apt. Surrounding countryside is lush, green, England.
Apt. is well equipped with all essentials, and we were also left some really handy, and thoughtful extras upon our arrival. Double bed is v. comfy, bunk beds fine for our two teenage daughters. Plenty of storage. Plenty of mirrors ( for girls ! ) Bathroom lovely. Sitting room large, comfy sofas, great tv / sound system. Kitchen all good, but property desc. says that there is a dishwasher...there isn't. This didn't bother us, as we were out most meals, but does need altering on description.
Just a couple of downsides, that I have left till last, as only real detail-seekers ever read ALL of a lengthy review. And they would NOT put us off staying again, but it isn't fair NOT to mention.....
Parking in Shrewsbury is a real issue. Limited, and expensive. Unloading your car with ease, relies on the v.limited space outside apt. being available, then a 10min slot is the max. allowed stay, before driving round town to another car park. Carl gave good advise on the best one etc. They are not cheap, but only certain ones offer stays of more than 1 or 2 hours. If you plan to stay IN Shrewsbury, this is not a problem, we needed to be in and out, so not so handy, as all-day parking is quite a walk. On the upside....the walking gave us a chance to burn off a few of the calories that most holidayers manage to consume too much of !!!
There are also quite a few steep stairs up to the apt. Not ideal for push-chairs, or anybody with mobility issues. But for the average human.....just another tiny help with the fitness levels !!! Thanks for a great flat, communication and extras !!
The apartment itself was much larger than we expected. The bathroom and kitchen had everything we could possibly need.
The sound system, TV, etc. we're not used by us, but they were top notch.
what made this over the top was Carl...from some fresh fruit upon arrival, to showing us the town by foot so we could get to the car park, and then saving us when we couldn't get a taxi to make a wedding at Rowtown Castle on time!
The location is righ in the center of Shrewsbury and we didn't need our car the entire time we were there.
Highly recommend and we wished we could've stayed much longer!
We stayed in this lovely apartment for 6 days with 2 young children. The location and property were exceptional, very spacious and with everything you would need and more as well as feeling really homely. Very central location. We were visiting friends in a nearby village and it was our first trip to the area. There was so much to see and do in town and the surrounding areas.
The owner went the extra miles to be super helpful and make our stay such a joy.
I would highly recommend to everyone.

My partner & I stayed here for the weekend recently and we loved it. We have family in Shrewsbury so wanted somewhere to say fairly central - this is the perfect location! Perfect for accessing shopping and cocktails! Our favourite place for cocktails was the libertines, it's very quirky and the cocktails are amazing...especially if made by our favourite mixologist Fred, he is very talentated! We then had a fabulous meal at number four, we went crazy for the sticky toffee pudding. Overall we had a fabulous time in Shrewsbury, there is so much to do. The accommodation it's self was a real pleasure to stay in, the bed was really comfortable, every where was spotless and I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the jacuzzi bath!! I couldn't recommend anywhere better to stay than here, it's a real treat with so many lovely places to visit.
