We have just spent 3 nights at the b & b run by Tricia and Tony. We had a lovely room, very tastefully decorated and with all the extras you could possibly need. The breakfast was excellent starting with cereals and fresh fruit followed by the full Shropshire cooked breakfast and toast and homemade marmalade. Delicious! The parking was very... More

Having agreed a booking at this B&B two weeks ago, without any mention of requiring a deposit, but having received a confirmation of booking - I received an email today saying my room had been subsequently relet to the owners daughter! Shame - given many other plans hinged on this booked accommodation. Odd way to run a business?

As in all such matters as this, there is always two sides to the story. I do not intend to go into specific detail but if one was privy to the e-mails I am sure one would understand our position. Suffice to say after our original offer of our own guest room, as our regular B&B rooms were fully booked,... More

We were only passing through the area and sadly only had the one day and a night to spend in Much Wenlock, a beautiful place know as England's hidden town; also hidden but no less beautiful was the Old Quarry cottage B&B which we came across on TripAdvisor and spent one night (truly not long enough) in the Coach House...

We were made very welcome and had a charming room in the house. Incredibly well equipped down to shoe cleaning gear and first aid kit, which happily we didn't need!. Added bonus was the lovely evening meal served in the conservatory so we could eat and both look out over the garden. We were sent the menu choices in advance... More

We stayed in the Coach House suite but on a B&B rather than self catering basis. Clean, spacious and well equipped, the accommodation consists of a large bedroom including 2 armchairs and coffee table, bathroom and good sized kitchen. The excellent kitchen facilities meant that we didn't have to go out to dine every night. Breakfast was good, with good... More

Had a great weekend at Old Quarry Cottage... the food was really good and the hosts were very helpful. From our base here we saw the local Xmas market in Much Wenlock and also visited Blists Hill for the Victorian Christmas. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay for the Ironbridge area.

My husband and I spent a delightful two days with Tricia and Anthony. Our room had everything we could possibly need as well as very comfortable beds.The bathroom was well equiped with several hooks for towels and dressing gowns. There was also plenty of shelf space. These touches are very often lacking in en-suite accommodation. As well as an excellent... More

We so enjoyed our B&B stay with Tricia and Anthony at the Old Quarry Cottage in Brockton near Much Wenlock. They are so hospitable, and we had a marvelous dinner with them, and the breakfast was superb. The en-suite rooms are comfortable and large, and the must visit old Medieval town of Much Wenlock is very close.

We had been let down by another B&B in the local area and so glad that we had. The welcome and service that we received from Quarry Cottage was second to none. Would recommend this cottage for a quiet and relaxing break in the Shropshire hills.
