We had an excellent 2 night stay at Calcutts House. The house and rooms were very clean, first class breakfast and the customer service was second to none. An other advantage was the location, we were able to leave the car in the car park and walk to a number (5) of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum's available through the very... More

The owners were very welcoming and happy to help with booking taxis or anything else you wanted .Breakfast over our stay was excellent ,a good selection of cereals,... More

This was our second visit as we stayed at Calcutt's House on our last visit to the Ironbridge area 2 years ago. Thankfully, the service and the food are still excellent. Breakfast consists of a buffet table with cereals, yoghurts, fruit etc. and a freshly cooked "full english" (ticked off a list the evening before). Nothing is too much trouble,... More

This was our second stay here. The first time we were in a lovely room within the house itself, and this time had a room in the coach house which was very small (getting into the bathroom was a bit if a squeeze). That said, the room was excellent value - had it cost more I might have given four... More

It was many years since I had visited Ironbridge- the cradle of the the iron industry and with its famous 1781 iron bridge. I found Calcutts on the internet and physically, it was easy to find- near where the road forks for Ironbridge or Jackfield. It is well positioned and quiet and I was able to go on foot both... More

This is the perfect location for anyone visiting Ironbridge Gorge Museums. We stayed in the William of Orange room (annex) which was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was made with good local produce, all fresh and nicely cooked and they catered well for my husband's dietary requirements (gluten free). We took mountain bikes as it is at the side of a...

Needed accomodation, searched the Internet for an approximate area and rang the listed number. A very cheerful gentleman answered our call and assured us that a room was available. We were welcomed and shown through the house so we could choose a room to suit our needs. We were then served tea and coffee.. Our one night of necessity turned... More

Found this b & b on Trip Advisor. It was delightful. We stayed in the Coach House, the rooms are small but spotlessly clean. The breakfast was excellent quality and cooked to perfection. Would recommend .

Because the weather was good and we were having a weekend away in Berkshire we decided to have another night away to visit Ironbridge on the way back to Lancashire and were really glad to have found The Calcutts House in Jackfield. We stayed in the annexe in a twin bedded room with a walk-in shower which was ideal for... More

We recently travelled (April 2014) from the US to England and stayed at the Calcutts House. The friendly owners couldn't have done more to accommodate us. The room was clean, quiet and the breakfast which we pre-ordered the night before was delicious. No complaints at all.
