The Calcutts House is a beautiful old property, in a wonderful setting and owned and run by great hosts. It's therefore a little difficult to have to write a less than fantastic review - but there are two key things in a B&B stay, and one of them is of course a good night's sleep in a comfortable bed. Unfortunately...

Firstly thank you for your very nice comments about most of your stay with us, we are sorry we could not move you to a different room, but as you said we were fully booked. We do try to make it clear on the size of the beds in each room in the description, as they are all different. Your...

Lovely house and hosts who made our very relaxing and enjoyable. the area is interesting with lots of history and museums. Lovely walks and countryside nearby. we spent a lot of time just walking and left the car in the hotel car park, most attractions can be walked to if you are reasonably fit. There are many pubs and restaurants...

Fantastic room in a great location, owners very helpful, the house is beautiful and the breakfast was the best I have had in any hotel for a long time. More of a boutique hotel than a guest house. Great pubs on the doorstep to suit every taste. I would give Calcutts house 10 out of 10 and if you have...

What a beautiful place to stay. Creaky floor boards, crooked doorways, steep stairs, lovely breakfast and very pleasant hosts. Not your generic chain hotel, lovely homely feel, gorgeous fluffy towels and crisp bed linen - what's not to love? I will be back 👍

We stayed at The Calcutts for one night to attend a friend's wedding in Ironbridge. We were welcomed by James who was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were separate to the main house with access via stairs. Our room was cosy, clean and well presented. There was tea, coffee, biscuits and a TV in the room. The bed was...

Visited with friends and really enjoyed our visit. Twin room in the Coach House was clean, warm and comfortable. Nicely decorated room and excellent shower room. Owners are exceptionally helpful and polite and the cooked breakfast was delicious. Good location for Ironbridge as it is a pleasant fifteen minute walk down an old railway pathway to the bridge.
