We booked using a voucher knowing little or nothing about where we were going. The Ship is a very welcoming pub/b&b in a beautiful setting. The staff are all very friendly and efficient, the rooms are well thought out, comfortable and clean and the food was lovely. A great base for lots of different activities and interests in a lovely setting. The outside space has been well done and I would imagine is a fabulous spot for a meal and a drink in the summer.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Ship Inn was first built in 1770 for a local bargeman and has recently undergone a major refurbishment. On offer is superb quality dining and accommodation. Relax and admire the views over the River Severn while having a meal from our extensive menu. Our bar also serves quality real ales and fine wines. Situated on the banks of the River Severn, the location is superb for fishing, walking, bird watching and is within easy traveling distance of the historic towns of Bewdley & Bridgnorth. On the doorstep is the Severn Valley Railway station at Highley and Visitor Centre where various steam locomotives from the Golden Days of Steam Railway are on display. It is an ideal setting to come and enjoy a taste of Shropshire. ... more less
