Cottage
Dating back to 1783, Carpenters Row Cottage is part of the fascinating history of the Ironbridge Gorge, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution! It comfortably sleeps 4 guests in two bedrooms, plus a further 2 guests on a deeply sprung sofa bed. The location is great for walking, cycling and exploring the Ironbridge Museums, cafés, pubs and restaurants. The space is flexible, practical and comfortable. The master bedroom has a lovely antique double bed, and in the twin room, the two single beds can be zipped together to create one king sized bed, so whether you are two couples or a family you will be well catered for. Dogs We do allow responsible dog owners to bring their pets, but would ask that you restrict them to the downstairs open plan area using the child gates provided.

Please note that the cottages next to ours in the Row are currently being renovated (2021). If you have any concerns about this relating to your stay, please just ask. ------------------------ History of the property. Carpenters Row is an early example of accommodation built specifically by the Coalbrookdale Company to attract a workforce to its employment. The row originally consisted of eight cottages and two brew houses. The design of the row was symmetrical: numbers 1-5 were mirror images of numbers 6-10. Each house accommodated the workforce using a system of 'hot bedding', workers from one shift occupying the straw mattress beds from the other, approximately 15 persons per house. So at one point in history the three converted houses that you will be staying in would have once housed around 45 workers. Each house also performed a certain function: the brew-house, which is now the kitchen, housed the old cast iron pot which can now be found in the rear garden. ------------------------------ Carpenters Row Cottage is Grade II listed and comprises: 1 kitchen with dishwasher, oven, gas hob, microwave, kettle, 4 slice toaster and two fridges (with freezer compartments) 2 bathrooms (1 is en-suite to the master bedroom) 2 bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin/superking) 27 ft (8.2m) oak beamed living room log burner and gas central heating 2 comfortable sofas (one of which is a double sofa bed) Gardens to the side and rear Terrace along the front Off road parking for 1 car (further free parking can be found nearby) Garden at front of house is gated and has railings, however we cannot guarantee that it is not dog escape proof! We provide bed linen, towels, handsoap, dish washer tablets, toilet rolls and a supply of tea bags, coffee and sugar. The kitchen is well equipped, but if you need anything particular, a full inventory can be provided. More
