My husband and I booked a night at The Old Rectory whilst house-hunting in the area and what a strike of luck they had a room! Not sure we'd have been as lucky in Peak season! The B and B was extremely well-run, clearly by a couple who know what makes a place stand out: relaxed, friendly hosts, immaculately clean, wonderful setting, amazingly comfortable bed, super carrot cake and tea in front of the fire lit just for us, delicious breakfast and those special little extras in the rooms...homemade biscuits, decaf coffee, massive selection of teas, good quality toiletries, chocolates. Would definitely stay again if in the area and if there were such a thing as a 'sixth star', this place would be getting it from me.

Thanks for your great review - it almost had me blushing. Do come again when you're up house hunting - you couldn't have chosen a better area and when you do find somewhere to live you never know - we may be neighbours!

We enjoyed a lovely two nights at the Old Rectory and found the owners extremely welcoming and very helpful. Our room was very spacious and quiet and we appreciated all the little touches like afternoon tea on arrival, sherry, chocolates and homemade cookies in our room. Breakfast was superb with plenty of choice. The dogs deserve a mention, as they too are very friendly!

Four of us stayed here as part of a UK cycling adventure. Everything about the place was really well thought out and of a high standard. We arrived quite late and flustered but they didn't mind. We paid extra for supper which must be done too. We only stayed one night as we had to continue our trip but we will return in the future and are looking forward to it! The only negative for us was finding the place, but it would probably be much easier in a car than on a bicycle.

Stayed: September 2013, traveled with friends

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Old Rectory even though it was short. We are perfectly placed for walking, cycling or riding holidays situated on just off The Jack Mytton bridleway and the Shropshire Way footpath.
We can be difficult to find if you rely on sat nav, but there are good directions on our website and the good old OS map works well too.
Please do come again we would love to see you!

We stayed at The Old Rectory on our way to Wales last August. We only stayed for one night but it was wonderful. The house is situated in a very peaceful location with beautiful gardens and the whole place is fantastic. We stayed in the Green Room which was gorgeous. Huge big room with large windows overlooking the garden. Very comfortable bed and luxurious bedding. Lovely big shower in the bathroom. Lots of little extras like the cookies, bathrobes and slippers. Izzy was such a good host and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting her and staying in her beautiful house. When we arrived we were treated to homemade scones and tea out in the garden which was a lovely treat. Then the two very friendly dogs (I'm so sorry - I've forgotten their names) kindly took us for a walk through the gardens which was great fun.

Izzy recommended a couple of nearby restaurants for that evening and we went to The Clive which is definitely worth a visit.

Breakfast was plentiful and delicious and although we were only there for one night we didn't feel that we were made to rush off first thing - we spent a nice relaxing morning reading the papers in the lounge. All in all we were made to feel very welcome and highly recommend it - I only wish we could have stayed a bit longer.

Tarmac and Bella enjoyed meeting you too! As I am writing this response in the depths of winter with the endless, endless rain it seems a very long time since those lovely long days we had in August. But we're so glad you enjoyed you're short stay - please do come again when you're passing.

Everything at The Old Rectory is done very well - decor, hospitality, bedding, bathroom, friendly hosts, and a breakfast of the highest quality cooked with great skill. Great attention to details - such as freshly-squeezed juice, high-quality condiments and preserves (even Marmite 'XO'!), and good coffee.
Lots of very welcome touches, such as mulled wine and mince pies in the living room, bottled water and sherry in the bedroom (plus tea/coffee of course).
You can't fail but be impressed and delighted.

Room Tip: Yellow room is very nice and lower priced as it is smaller - though the bed is soft which may not suit everyone.

Thank you for lovely review and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us in December. It had to be mulled wine and mince pokes so near Christmas didn't it. Do came and see us at another time of year too.
