Recently spent three nights in this beautiful guest house. We all grew up (in Scotland) listening to stories of Shropshire so we took Mum back to visit some of her old haunts and see for ourselves the places whose names have always been so familiar to us. We were determined to have a wonderful weekend when we set off, but we were so glad that we booked The Old Rectory as our accommodation and our lovely hosts made it an unbeatable one. Beautiful rooms with comfortable beds, every need thought of, fresh flowers in abundance and the most delicious shortbread ( you can even take the recipe home with you!).Excellent choice and variety at breakfast time and the guest lounge...just think Jane Austen. These things could all be found in many places ( except the shortbread) but there is an atmosphere at The Old Rectory which can only be found there. If you are visiting this area I highly recommend it.

- 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
