“Beautiful space - perfect holiday home”
Reviewed 23 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

I LOVED my stay here. It really is perfect, clean, airy and light, with everything you need for a self-catering holiday. Barbara and Steve have an attention for detail that is rare, and they've created something very endearing and enjoyable.

Getting there was really straightforward. I arrived by train, so simply walked through town to the greyfriars footbridge, turned right, and the house is on the right after about half a mile. There are plenty of ways from the house back into town, and there are two fantastic pubs about half a mile in each direction, The Crown nearest town and The Red Barn away from town. There are little local shops, and about a mile away is Meole Brace shopping, with the usual Sainsbury's, M&S, TK Maxx etc. About 15 minutes on foot gets you anywhere you want to go. Best of all is being less than 10 minutes away from the riverside, where I did lots of walking, some running, reading and picnicking. As the river runs in a loop around the town, you can get to the theatre, shopping, abbey, museum very easily, and being just outside of town, it's quiet. Very quiet. Just what I needed!

The apartment itself has some great touches. To be honest, it makes my own home feel pretty grubby and disorganised. The shoe rack and hooks just inside the front door mean you're out of your outdoor wear immediately when you get in, and there's a spare brolly if you need it too for going out. There's a great feeling of somewhere that you live in, with plenty of bookshelves with everything from local travel books to cook books, literature and fiction. The kitchen is well equipped (yes, I did some cooking!) and the little touches like a good quality iron, washer/drier and a linen basket and laundry basket really make a difference. No "I'll use the bottom drawer/suitcase for my dirty socks". A place for everything. I was out-and-about most of my time in Shrewsbury, but sat and watched a movie one late evening, and having a good smart TV (hook into Netflix or Amazon Prime Movies and Spotify!) and a comfy two-seater made relaxing a dawdle. It's a superb space. The bathroom is spacious and has an amazing power shower, and lots of little bits'n'bobs of toiletries so you can get a shower when you arrive without heading out to the shops.

I was left a pint of milk and some lovely crusty bread, and got to meet Barbara and Steve who are simply awesome, very friendly, and I got some really useful tips on places to go. If you visit this apartment, take them up on their offer of "local guide" if you're unsure of what to see and do.

This was my first holiday by myself for 12 or 13 years, and I simply loved every minute of it, but the apartment made the stay relaxing, effortless and highly enjoyable. Highly recommended.

“Very comfortable apartment”
Reviewed 6 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The apartment is very comfortable- it is really light and airy. Situated just a short (10 minute) walk from the town centre, it is really convenient. There are also good rail and road links should you wish to travel further afield. Barbara & Steve are very good hosts - always on hand if you have any queries. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Reviewed 2 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

What a fabulous find! Amazing self contained accommodation within easy reach of the town, off road parking and parking available in adjacent roads.
Superbly appointed kitchen, extremely comfy Queen bed, lovely studio.
The hosts Steve & Barbara are probably the best you could ask for, will be staying for a chilled weekend when time allows. A*****
