Fantastic place to stay, beautiful area and great location. Great hosts and very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was very good and cooked to perfection. Nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in the Coach House which was great for what we wanted, compact but perfectly adequate. Great pubs in the area. Totally recommend this place to stay.

Stayed here with my husband in the converted coach house. It was comfortable but rather cold. Breakfast was lovely and the host charming. Calcutta House is on the outskirts of Iron Bridge but it has a convenient car park at the back. I would stay again if I was in the area.

Such a pretty house and very relaxing. I didn't spend much time in the house but I would definitely go back. The only thing I might say is that it got a bit cold in the night after the heating went off but other than that no problem. The shower was good and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was lovely....

Calcutts House is in a convenient position to explore this area, and the Ironbridge itself is about 15 mins walk away. The property has a large car park at rear which is really handy. On arriving, we were warming welcomed by James and had tea and coffee in the lounge, given handy local info and given our keys. We stayed... More

A lovely family run upmarket b&b in a delightful area. We arrive mid afternoon Saturday for a one night stay. The genial host made us fresh tea and coffee and gave us advice about the local area and local eateries. The room we had chosen was the William Hazeldine room with a Louis XV reproduction bed and some complementing furniture,... More

A map is supplied with the confirmation but some better signage would be very useful - especially after dark. You get a very warm welcome to this interesting old house - but why no history of it? After all it is shown in famous paintings and much written about. I had a double bedded room for single occupancy in the... More

We had need recently to travel through Shropshire on our way to Wales and decided, given the length of the journey, to break it in Telford. Realising that Ironbridge was nearby we decided to stay there overnight and take in the bridge and the town, before continuing our journey the next day. We booked online directly with Calcutts House for... More

We were met and greeted by James on a dark November evening. As soon as we arrived he came out to meet us, helped my wife with her luggage and quick as a wink the kettle was on and we were treated to a hot pot of fresh coffee. We stayed in the coach house which was very roomy and... More

We booked Calcutts house through booking.com and secured a reasonable price, but more importantly we were staying in Ironbridge or to me more precise Jackfield. Close to the tile museum which was on our list to visit. James is a wonderful host who greets you with a cup of tea in the common room and gives you a chance to... More

This was the second time we had stayed in 'The Calcutts House' as we had stayed 5 years pervasively, and this was slightly different this time as the establishment was under new owners. Both James and Sarah made us feel very welcome and the cup of tea and cake on arrival was very much appreciated after a long journey up... More
