Lovely property located on the edge of Telford.....little bit of a mare to find but well worth it.(But that's Telford for You)! Very comfortable set in splendid gardens. The Hosts are first class....The afternoon tea on arrival is splendid as was the breakfast well cooked and presented with not a trace of grease.

One of the best B&Bs I have ever stayed in. As well as everything you would expect (parking, bright and clean rooms, excellent showers with hot water), Adrian and Rosemary have gone out of their way to make The Rectory extra special. The breakfast (made from local and home-grown ingredients) is outstanding. It was such a treat to be welcomed... More

We had a room on the ground floor with a separate entrance which was handy. The room was a little cold and also the bathroom but the bathroom had a separate fan heater so that was used. Breakfast was good and the owners friendly and informative with ideas for eating out and also maps of Ironbridge. The tea and scones... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you felt cold and also that you did not tell us at the time - we know it can be embarrassing to complain but at least the problem can be resolved during the stay. The radiators have TRV's that can be adjusted and also the room has a fanheater for a quick... More

A hidden gem, I generally stay in larger chain hotels for work and never rate hotels on here, however stayed here for one night and now my opinions are changed! The Old Rectory was superb, far better than any chain hotel you would stay in for the same price. From the minute of arrival Adrian and Rosemary were on hand... More

What a wonderful place to stay. Adrian & Rosemary welcome you into their stunning B&B and make you feel completely relaxed in their beautiful home. The food is fantastic, from the delicious homemade cakes on arrival, homemade biscuits in the bedroom, to the delicious breakfast made with locally sourced produce & home baked goodies. The garden is a peaceful haven... More

We were delighted with every aspect of this lovely Guest House. The house and garden are beautiful. Tea in the garden with delicious homemade cakes and just the sound of birdsong was particularly special. Our hosts made us feel totally at home and could not have done more for us. We will certainly go again!

A great find with charming hosts. We planned three days to take in museums and attractions at Ironbridge Gorge. An excellent place to stay, by car less than 15 minutes from all the sights and good pubs and restaurants. A lovely house with character, quiet area with large pretty garden. We had beautiful room with a fantastic breakfast.
