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 👍

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.

A little difficult to find after dark, so we were grateful for the detailed arrival/parking directions provided ahead of time. We were warmly welcomed by James, had a lovely old room with a great shower, tea tray, etc., and a delicious breakfast the next morning before making the short drive to see Ironbridge.
