A map is supplied with the confirmation but some better signage would be very useful - especially after dark. You get a very warm welcome to this interesting old house - but why no history of it? After all it is shown in famous paintings and much written about. I had a double bedded room for single occupancy in the... More

We had need recently to travel through Shropshire on our way to Wales and decided, given the length of the journey, to break it in Telford. Realising that Ironbridge was nearby we decided to stay there overnight and take in the bridge and the town, before continuing our journey the next day. We booked online directly with Calcutts House for... More

We were met and greeted by James on a dark November evening. As soon as we arrived he came out to meet us, helped my wife with her luggage and quick as a wink the kettle was on and we were treated to a hot pot of fresh coffee. We stayed in the coach house which was very roomy and... More

We booked Calcutts house through booking.com and secured a reasonable price, but more importantly we were staying in Ironbridge or to me more precise Jackfield. Close to the tile museum which was on our list to visit. James is a wonderful host who greets you with a cup of tea in the common room and gives you a chance to... More

This was the second time we had stayed in 'The Calcutts House' as we had stayed 5 years pervasively, and this was slightly different this time as the establishment was under new owners. Both James and Sarah made us feel very welcome and the cup of tea and cake on arrival was very much appreciated after a long journey up... More

Our stay was only one night on our Visit to the area. The host was friendly and welcoming. The room was lovely and absolutely spotless. Bed was huge and comfortable, we stayed in The Lord Dundonald room. Our breakfast was chosen the night before via a menu card. In the morning the host greeted us, again friendly. What I liked...

Excellent service. Great little room. Gorgeous breakfast. What can I say. Hosts very accomodating and friendly without being overpowering. Lots to do around where we were located. The half moon meals highly recommended.

Lovely peaceful location, centrally based to explore Ironbridge and surrounding areas. Hosts very friendly and welcoming, who cook a most splendid breakfast! We stayed in the coach house, the bed was very comfy, the shower room small but did the job. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Calcutts and hope to return.

Nothing was too much trouble for the owner. We were made to feel very welcome even though we arrived 2 hours early ! Very comfortable accommodation in a great spot, being only a 15 minute stroll from the centre of Ironbridge. Ample car parking was a bonus too. We will be back !
