The Severn Gorge Countryside Trust manages 260 hectares of the landscape of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site, which includes stunning wildflower meadows, tranquil woodlands, fascinating historic remains,  awe inspiring views and over 25 kilometres of footpaths.  All of our land is open to the public 365 days a year.  See here for a selection of some of the sites you can explore.

Although we may be dog friendly we are also keen to emphasis the fact that many of our guests don't have pets. For this reason we are proud to say that our cleaning standards are exceptionally high, so much so we are confident that when you book a stay with us as a non pet owner you will be equally delighted with the luxurious standards we pride ourselves on and are consistently appraised for, has reflected in our many guest reviews.

"The property on arrival was spotless and we loved the welcome wine and cake as well as the gifts and treats left for the dogs which was a lovely touch. The cottages are truly dog friendly and it was so nice to feel so relaxed about having our dogs with us. We had never been to the area before and had a wonderful time exploring - there is no need for the car for the most part as there are so many places to see and things to do within walking distance. We had some lovely meals out in nearby dog friendly pubs and walked and walked for miles. We can certainly recommend a day out at the Victorian village. All in all we had a lovely time and will definitely be back! " Veronica Banks
