Our Inspector's View

A warm welcome is assured from Adrian and Rosemary at The Old Rectory of St James. Located in a quiet area of Telford, the property is ideally located for the town centre and just a short drive from Ironbridge, Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth. The gardens are a feature here and produce from the vegetable patch is used at breakfast and dinner. The afternoon teas are noteworthy with home-made cakes and tea served on arrival in the guest lounge. The award-winning breakfast, which is included in the room rate, sees local sourcing of sausages and bacon, home-made breads and jams plus eggs supplied by the family chickens.

About The area

Discover Shropshire

Perhaps nowhere else in England will you find a county so deeply rural and with so much variety as Shropshire. Choose a clear day, climb to the top of The Wrekin, and look down on that ‘land of lost content’ so wistfully evoked by A E Housman. Peer through your binoculars and trace the course of Britain’s longest river as the Severn sweeps through the county, from the Breidden Hills to Wyre Forest, slicing Shropshire in two. To the north is a patchwork of dairy fields, hedgerows, copses and crops, broken at intervals by rugged sandstone ridges such as Grinshill or Nesscliffe, and dissected by a complex network of canals.

Spilling over the border into neighbouring Cheshire and North Wales is the unique meres and mosses country, with serenely smooth lakes glinting silver, interspersed with russet-tinged expanses of alder-fringed peat bog, where only the cry of the curlew disturbs the silence. South of the Severn lies the Shropshire Hills AONB. It’s only when you walk Wenlock Edge that you fully discover what a magical place it is – glorious woods and unexpectedly steep slopes plunge to innumerable secret valleys, meadows, streams and farmhouses, all tucked away, invisible from the outside world.
