The Valley Hotel, originally called Severn House, dates back to 1757 when it was built as a private dwelling. The Iron Bridge was then built in 1779.

The house was bought by the prolific inventor and electrical engineer Thomas Parker or "the Edison of Europe" in 1907.

In 1939 Severn House was converted into a hotel by Wrekin Brewery. Having remained a hotel since this point, Severn House is full of vibrancy, history and wonderful views - it is no wonder the property has become a firm favourite for couples to say their vows.


Take your pick on facilities for your vows, breakfast and evening reception at this Shropshire wedding venue.

    I wish I could give the team 100 stars and that still wouldn't be enough. Firstly they are the only hotel to have a honest approach to wedding packages. All contact with your staff was very engaging.

    You literally could not help us enough and Lisa was always a phone call away to help and advise. All staff were so accommodating the night before, the suite we had was wonderful, practical and indulgent and the bridal suit was ready early for photographs as I was getting ready.

    The care that was given to us throughout the day was amazing. Nothing phased them... dropped cakes, missing room keys, non residents turning up to pay for breakfast... all dealt with a smile and a 'no problem'. The food was exceptional! Afternoon tea and then chilli with all the trimmings.

    If you are wondering if you should book your wedding here? Yes do it! Go to this beautiful location and meet these wonderful hard working people and all your wedding dreams will come true!!
