Rosemary and Adrian are the perfect hosts, and have thought of every little thing to make your stay as relaxing and comfortable as possible. Greeted upon arrival with afternoon tea with delicious homemade cakes. The Old Rectory is lovely; tasteful furnished and set in beautiful grounds in a quiet village just a few mins drive from Telford. Breakfast was delicious...

Adrian and Rosemary offer their guests a warm and relaxing stay in their beautiful Old Rectory..Afternoon tea on arrival (all homemade) is only the start. An amazing cooked breakfast (locally sourced ) and a wealth of local knowledge sets you up for a day exploring. But be warned, one visit is never enough. This is my third and definitely not...

We stayed for one night last weekend and cannot wait to return! Adrian and his wife Rosemary were the perfect hosts and their afternoon tea was beautiful. Adrian was extremely helpful and talked us through various options for places to eat during our stay - we chose to visit Ironbridge which cost less than £6 in a taxi. The room...

We only stayed for one night but would quite happily have stayed for longer. Personable hosts, clean, warm, comfortable room, lovely breakfast, quiet, lovely garden and good location for travelling around.

This was our second stay and, like the first time, it couldn't have been better. Our hosts were charming and welcoming, giving us tea and home baked cakes (including a very nice Victoria sponge) when we arrived. Our room (indeed the whole house) was spotless and very comfortable and the extensive garden was looking lovely in the spring sunshine. In...

I have been lucky enough to visit some 24 different countries, as well as stay all over the UK and I can honestly say, this is probably the best place I've ever stayed at! You are not only made to feel so very welcome but made to feel valued. The facilities are outstanding on both quality and amount. The breakfast...

Did not actually stay at this accommodation but there customer service and communication was excellent and on the web site the accommodation looked really appealing, It did not fit my needs on this occasion (as would have been arriving after 10pm and leaving by 8am). If visiting the Telford area in the future this would defiantly be an accommodation high...

This is the second time that we've stayed here and we enjoyed it just as much. A lovely afternoon tea to welcome us, a beautifully appointed bedroom and as good a breakfast as you'll find anywhere. If you're in the area treat yourself and book here, you won't be disappointed.

I stayed here for a night on 24th November 16 with a colleague and we had a fantastic stay, the hosts were very welcoming, the room was lovely and spacious overlooking the gardens, we had homemade brownies and flapjacks and tea by an open fire. It was very convenient for the International Centre (5 min drive or £4 in a...

My husband and I had a marvellous overnight stay at the Old Rectory. Hosts Rosemary and Adrian were very welcoming and homemade cakes with tea on arrival were fantastic. Our room was large and beautifully furnished and breakfast was excellent. Although we were there for a specific event in Madeley and so didn't do much sightseeing, The Old Rectory is...

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
