Our three night stay was wonderful. We were served afternoon tea on our arrival and Rosemary and Adrian were lovely hosts throughout our stay in this beautiful old rectory. The room was spotless, beautifully decorated, comfortable bed, there was home made shortbread and good quality toiletries. Breakfast was delicious, freshly cooked and included home made bread and jams. We would... More

Rosemary and Adrian gives you this extra warm welcome with their attention to detail. There is a wonderful selection of fresh fruit for breakfast, fresh flowers in your room, self-baked shortbread etc.

This was a wonderful place to stay. We would recommend it to anyone. It is a lovely house and the owners made you feel like friends. Afternoon tea in the gardens was a real highlight. If we are ever in the area again we would only stay there.

Adrian and Rosemary were extremely friendly, sociable and accommodating hosts. Owning a lovely and scenic guest house, inside and out, they had ample space on their property to secure our bikes and for our support vehicle, the ensuite room was clean, cosy and warm, and the dining area laid out with a wide selection of the freshest and most delicious...

The Old Rectory of St James is superb. Very comfortable rooms, tea/coffee and homemade cakes on arrival, beautiful gardens and a delicious breakfast. The locations ideal for the Telford International Centre but also for Ironbridge and the River Severn.

We could only spend one night and would loved to have stayed longer. Our hosts gave us a very warm welcome as did the wren nesting in the wreath on the front door. Our room was charming (very much in keeping with the characterful old rectory) with very comfortable large bed with crisp white linen and fresh roses for that... More

It's not very often that reviews live up to your own expectations but in the case of the old rectory every one of the glowing reviews is 100% justified and appropriate. This is a delightful b&b run by an equally delightful couple. The afternoon tea on arrival is a lovely touch and the home made cakes delicious. Our room was... More

We recently had an overnight stop at The Old Rectory and were so pleased we did. This is a delightful place and Rosemary and Adrian are excellent hosts and have a beautiful home and gardens. Everything was presented to a very high standard and the breakfasts were fantastic. We would revisit and recommend without hesitation.

A lovely building in beautiful gardens, a great credit to hosts Adrian & Rosemary who make you feel more like a friend than just a guest. Luxurious rooms, gorgeous homemade cakes and bread, eggs from their own hens, if produce is not from their own garden it comes from a farm shop a few miles away. There is a lovely... More
