The 10 chic ensuite bedrooms have been styled by London designer David Bentheim using calming neutral and coastal colours along with quirky touches and a variety of textures including painted wood, natural willow and wool.

A fun and informative day out is ensured at the ten Ironbridge Gorge Museums, near Telford in Shropshire. Set either side of the stunning River Severn valley, they reflect a slice of the history of the Gorge, its people, their lifestyles and their work from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the early 1700s.

The Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2017 with a variety of special events throughout the year. A highlight will be the re-opening of the Museum of Iron in time for Easter following a complete refurbishment.

New life is pinging up all over the garden and the days start to stretch out a little longer.
