I've called it a cottage, but it's actually a house in an area of Victorian terraces. The area is called Castlefields, it'sjust behind the railway station; not only is it very attractive, but everyone says hello to you in the street - it feels like a good place to live. The interior is really cosy! it is extremely comfortable, with traditional fireplaces (to be admired rather than used, I hasten to add!) in every room, and well-equipped bathrooms and kitchen. There is a very pleasant long garden, and a farm with geese over the back fence lends a rural air. We really enjoyed the wine and delicious home-made Shrewsbury biscuits that had been thoughtfully left for us! we had a lot of fun exploring Shrewsbury and Shropshire; Shrewsbury is really convenient for travellers without a car (like us) as it's a real transport hub (loads of interesting places within half an hour by bus or train) and No 53 is just 10 minutes walk to the station. We enjoyed our stay very much..
No 53 was absolutely spot on for me and 3 friends for a lads bank holiday getaway. The house is in a great location, just round the corner from the river, and an easy walk into the town centre. The house itself is lovely and comfy, the bedrooms were all very spacious and the beds comfy. The kitchen is extremely well kitted out with all you need to self cater. There is also plenty of reading material, radio's, TV's to keep all occupied. The Garden is also lovely, even some handy herbs to go with our roast pork on Sunday. Rhian is a great host, everything we needed was there, and there was even a bottle of red and some lovely Shrewsbury biscuits on our arrival. I would heartily recommend the house, we are certainly keen to book it again.
