We stayed in the Coach house for two nights. The accommodation was first class - tastefully furnished and decorated and spotlessly clean. Tricia and Anthony were excellent hosts with a warm welcome and helpful advice when required. The breakfasts were superb and taken on a lovely conservatory overlooking the secluded garden.
Someone mentioned the lack of street lighting but torches were supplied in the accommodation. We ate at the local pub - The Feathers and also at the Wenlock Edge pub up the hill in Easthorpe. Both were good.
Although we were on a B&B basis the kitchen looked well equiped and we plan to return for a week self catering sometime. We would miss the breakfast but having it every day for a week might not be good for the waistline!

We stayed for B&B for two nights with another couple during a visit to Ironbridge and Much Wenlock. The accommodation in an adjoining coach house and the breakfast excellent value and the attention provided by the owners was very good. Two minor issues to be aware of is that there is no lighting during dark nights on the country road between the cottage and the local hostelry 250 yards away, and that the drive from the road to the cottage is narrow for an admittedly large car.

We would use be happy to use this establisment again

We have just spent two very enjoyable days at Old Quarry Cottage,Tricia and Anthony made us very welcome in their beautiful home, the room was clean and cosy with so many extras if needed!

Breakfast was plentiful and freshly served in the conservatory with a lovely view of the garden.

A very pleasant place to stay if visiting Shropshire.

We stayed here as a last minute find after being invited to a wedding reception nearby. Well I wish we had stayed the whole weekend. What a lovely place and such hospitable, yet unintrusive hosts! The Coach House was our lucky draw, and our friends had 2 double rooms in the main house. The Coach House has a kitchen, large bedroom with a sitting area, including TV with Sky, and a bathroom. Our cooked breakfast was fresh, with loads of extra toast and tasty homemade jams. If you are in the area or looking for a mini break....stay here!

Every aspect of our stay in the Coach House suite for 3 nights was superb. The brochure turned out to understate the quality of the accommodation and breakfast and what Tricia and Anthony did to make us welcome and ensure everything was just right. All this comes with an excellent restaurant within a few minutes walk and a location which provides a great base for exploring South Shropshire. A combination which would be very hard to beat.

Many thanks to Tricia and Anthony for their hospitality this weekend.

Lovely B&B in picturesque village.Fantastic breakfasts. Wireless broadband. Loads of good local info available in the room. Excellent food available at The Feathers which is about 100 yards away.

We were made to feel very welcome. E was doing the Triathlon at Much Wenlock on the Sunday morning and Tricia and Anthony kindly made our breakfasts early so that we could be there in good time.

Lots to see and do in the area. Our first visit to Shropshire and we certainly hope to be back next year to stay at Old Quarry Cottage.

In the Coach House for the umpteenth time, and back again soon. We never stay in the same place more than once. Except here, because it is so welcoming. A good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast, in clean, well-appointed accommodation.

Room Tip: The Coach House is well worth the extra, and lets you bring in your own dinner from the excellent ga...
