LOCK KEEPERS COTTAGE

Holt Heath

This is Lock Keepers Cottage, a Grade II listed cottage that sits on the banks of the River Severn at Holt Lock near the historic Thomas Telford built Holt Fleet Bridge, in Worcestershire, England.
It was built alongside Holt Lock in the 1830s when the River Severn was made navigable for freight and leisure vessels and was occupied by lock keepers employed by British Waterways until around 2010.

The cottage has just been acquired and will be refurbished to a high specification to provide a luxury home-from-home holiday accommodation,
- it is about to become a high specification holiday/vacation home which could be your base for exploring the beautiful Severn Valley, either by car, boat, cycle, or walking.

 


Located right on the side of the mighty River Severn at Holt Lock and weir, it is a wonderful fishing location ("very good for salmon, pike and barbel") and the island in the centre of the river (across the lock) is a BAA fishing rights area.

There are numerous other BAA waters along the River Severn, accessible from here, and local private waters too.


The Severn Way passes right in front of the cottage. This is a waymarked long-distance footpath in the United Kingdom, which follows the course of the River Severn through Mid Wales and western England.

According to the Long Distance Walkers Association the Severn Way is 224 miles (360 km).
