The view from The Look Out takes a bit of beating. This country cottage gives you a bird's eye perspective of the world famous arched Iron Bridge, in the beautiful countryside of Shropshire. Nestled nicely up in the Gorge, this retreat would be ideal for a couple looking for a quiet break. The Look Out sits just above the heart of Ironbridge, with its eateries and traditional shops. You can enjoy peace and tranquillity in countryside, surrounded by outstanding natural beauty. There are numerous walks and cycle routes with scenic views to help recharge your batteries. Wake up in a king size bed, and a light and airy galleried bedroom with a great view. Up two steps is a spacious en-suite bathroom with a bath and attached shower.
