We have been coming here for over 4 years and the quality, care and welcome never changes. It is an oasis of calm and peacefulness both in the lovely Old Rectory and the delightful, beautifully tended gardens. We hope to keep visiting this wonderful house and it’s owners Rosemary and Adrian for many years to come!

Room tip: All the rooms are elegant and comfortable.

The Old Rectory is quiet and cosy and our room (Clayton) was very comfortable. Adrian and Rosemary were perfect hosts; Adrian made us a wood fire when we arrived, served cake, was friendly but unobtrusive. They have beautiful gardens with very nice hens, and completely delicious breakfast. Despite being very accessible from the motorway, the place is extremely calm and restful.

Friendly welcome with tea and cake, fantastic large comfortable room and massive bathroom. Breakfast was amazing with a great choice of local, freshly cooked ingredients. The eggs even come from their own chickens.

A really nice B&B, beautiful gardens, pretty room and a tasty breakfast. The hosts were very considerate, all in all a great place to stay. Thank you. I haven't got anything else to say but I need to do 200 words.

We chose the Old Rectory on the basis of the Trip Advisor reviews when we were planning our first visit to Ironbridge Gorge. It certainly lived up to the billing. Adrian and Rosemary (and their three adorable dogs) were so welcoming and friendly. Greeted by a lovely afternoon tea in the beautiful visitors' lounge, we immediately felt at home. The house is immaculately decorated, and the gardens are superb. It's within easy reach by car of all the Ironbridge attractions, and the excellent Restaurant 1840 is in walking distance. Breakfast was delicious and was so filling it kept us going all day. A lot of the food is locally sourced, or home made by Rosemary, with eggs from their own hens. We had a great stay, just wish it could have been longer.
