APPROACH AND GENERAL INFORMATION A fine example of a grade ll listed building within the conservation area of Bewdley.

This house as with many of its type, with its plain façade is like a sweet, bland on the outside with its wrapper, yet just waiting to be discovered! And once over the threshold, you cannot help but stand in awe, taking in every inch, the beams and exposed wood work,

Delight at the quirky shaped room sizes etc. Be amazed at what is on offer and enchanted by the fascination that it still very much in essence today.

The property is actually deceptively spacious. With three double bedrooms, kitchen, cellar, lounge, bathroom and courtyard garden.

The house number 11 Welch Gate was in the distant past used to be a Cobblers. And no not being rude!! And sat between a couple of pubs. As the river bought in many men into the town from the ships, they wanted to drink. Hence why Bewdley had such a high density of public houses!
