The Calcutts House
Ranked #2 of 3 Jackfield B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We stayed at this bed and breakfast for three nights at the end of May; we had our nine year old daughter and my mum with us, my mum staying in a separate bedroom and our daughter on a camp bed in our room.

This bed & breakfast was very clean, welcoming and friendly. The owners were very pleasant and polite. They addressed us by Mr/Mrs and our surnames and they remembered our daughter's name.

The rooms were adequately equipped with comfortable furnishing. We had two rooms: the William Hazeldine room and the Lord Dundonald room; both were in the main building and very spacious. We had a problem with the shower door in one of the bedrooms, but this was speedily sorted out when reported. The breakfast was cooked to a high standard and there was an excellent fruit salad and an excellent selection of cereals.

It is a short walk from the centre of Ironbridge (it took 15 minutes) and a very short drive from all the Ironbridge attractions.

Lovely b&b in a great location, nice walk into Ironbridge and in the opposite direction there is the craft Centre which is worth a visit too.
The owners were very nice, friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was full of character. We had a lovely relaxing break.

We selected Calcutts for its location as it is within a stroll of Ironbridge and the river. the bonus was the tea served when we arrived and the lovely sunny table in the garden which was very pleasant after a hard day's driving.
The rooms we had were in a small building next to the house which were comfortable and the breakfast was tasty and ample.
Highly recommended.

My husband booked a room here and was under the impression it would be a room in the main house with character fixtures and fittings. Unfortunately, it was none of these, we were put in a room in the stable block with a velux window, so no view. The bathroom was very disappointing, in fact be careful, my husband caught is finger between the door and sink as space was so limited. The breakfast however was delicious and very well cooked.

Room Tip: Make sure its in the main house as they appear to be bigger and brighter.

Calcutts House is ideally located for visiting the Ironbridge Museums. It also has a welcoming local pub within easy walking distance which serves excellent food. We received a warm welcome and a cup of tea on arrival. Our room was not in the main building, but in an outbuilding close by. Our sleep quality was poor because, although the guests in the room above ours were not noisy people, the lack of sound insulation meant that we were continually disturbed. The bed was comfortable and with quiet I am sure we would have slept better. The breakfast was well cooked.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the main house

My cousin and I stayed here for 4 nights on a walking holiday. It was warm, comfortable, excellent breakfasts, clean and comfortable rooms and very welcoming owners.

Plenty of parking and an easy walk to Ironbridge for an evening meal, or there is a pub just round the corner.

Good value for money, when I compared rates for the area.
