The cottage has all modern amenities including a 3D & HD TV, surround sound and DVD player but it still retains its 18th Century olde-worlde character.

About the neighbourhood
The perfect setting................
Situated on the sunny Southern slopes of the Ironbridge Gorge with private parking for two cars right outside the door. Marthas Cottage is perfectly located; away from the hustle and bustle of the main street but still only two minutes walk from the shops and the world famous Iron bridge.
