We stayed here for four nights whilst we toured the area. It's a beautiful house in wonderful gardens. There are chickens to feed if you want to. It's very peaceful and all you hear are the birds whistling. The house has been refurbished very well and is very comfy and luxurious. Rosemary and Adrian are great hosts and the breakfasts...

My husband and I have recently returned from a long weekend visiting relatives in the area. It far exceeded our expectations in all areas! All the previous reviews are absolutely correct!. It wasn't just the quiet ambiance, lovely rooms, breakfasts and Rosemary's cakes and biscuits! that won us over, but the friendliness and welcome that we received during our stay....

This place is a gem of a B and B. Perfectly located for visiting the Ironbridge museums or if you have business in Telford. We received a warm welcome from Rosemary and Adrian and were provided with a scrumptious home made afternoon tea that would shame most hotels. The Besselow room overlooks the delightful garden. It is spacious, comfortable, clean...

My husband and I have just returned from a two night stay to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and what a lovely weekend it was. Rosemary and Adrian were the perfect hosts making us feel at home and welcome as soon as we got there. We enjoyed afternoon tea and Rosemary's homemade cakes (which were delicious!) within the beautiful gardens....

We received a very warm welcome from Adrian, and wonderful afternoon tea in the guest lounge, on arrival. We were shown to a well appointed airy room, with a very comfortable bed, and a delightful view of the gardens. Breakfast was all locally sourced and absolutely delicious, including Rosemary's heavenly sourdough bread and eggs from their own chickens -we will...

Luxurious home with lots of personal touches setting this B&B into a league of its own. We arrived to the smell of home baking and were presented with afternoon tea by our friendly hosts- Adrian and Rosemary. Amazing quality of home made and locally sourced food, well prepared and presented. Our room was spacious and exquisitely decorated, looking out onto...

The Old Rectory was simply gorgeous. Friendly hosts, amazing food. Each day I walked through the woods to get to the International Centre. I stayed in the Besselow room and it was as good as a five star hotel.

I went to the B+B for the night with my mother and sister and was extremely pleased with the service and stay. The rooms are beautiful, the grounds are beautiful, both Adrian and Rosemary were extremely lovely too. We are going to make this a yearly trip as we couldn't have been more satisfied with our stay!

I was in Telford area for a conference and couldn't get a hotel room, and was lucky that I went BandB which I don't normally do. Adam and Rosemary couldn't be more welcoming. They have a beautiful old home up a country lane. The house is traditional but very well equipped with very good standard all mod cons. The cleanliness...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The ideal choice for Business and Pleasure. Rosemary and Adrian are delighted to welcome you to this period Georgian Guest House, set in a quiet oasis, within easy reach of the bustling centre of Telford, the footpaths over the Shropshire hills and historic Ironbridge. Originally the Rectory of St James' Church from the 17th century to about 1975, it now provides quality bed and breakfast accommodation, with charm and character, and that little bit extra. We delight in providing a welcoming atmosphere where the simple things are done well; a vase of freshly cut flowers in your room: Afternoon Tea to greet you on your arrival: a well cooked breakfast of locally produced ingredients with homemade bread and jams plus eggs from our own hens. ... more   less
