    Although the cottages states car park 300 yards I didn't realise how far that was. As we didn't know Iron Bridge we didn't realise the shortage of parking available. I wasn't aware of the access via a very steep slope which after walking up hill from the car park was tiring. All luggage had to be transported up slope too. The cottage had plenty of pots pans etc.. The bathroom was excellent with a very good shower. I found the hum of the extractor annoying.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review. Sorry the slope was a problem for you, I have to say it is the first time any guests have commented on it, our shop staff would have happily helped if you needed assistance. We are very fortunate to have a private car park for all of our guests as public parking is such problem in Ironbridge. Although out of our control, we apologise for any inconvenience these comments may have caused.

    Was a good base for visiting the Ironbridge area, with attractions within easy reach. The private car parking was a bonus.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for your review. We are glad you found The Coracle so convenient and that you appreciated the use of our private car park as parking is a bit of a premium in Ironbridge. We hope to see you again in the future.
