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...

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...

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...

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
