Luxury Bed and Breakfast in Shropshire

This classic Georgian rectory is a rural retreat set in seven acres of glorious gardens. From your welcoming cup of tea and cakes relaxation sets in immediately. In a contented environment of dogs, horses, chickens and ducks stress just melts away.

Step into the house and you enter an elegant world. The Old Rectory has three guest bedrooms. Two are large, light and airy with views over the gardens as well as luxurious en-suite bathrooms. The third is slightly smaller and has a very smart private bathroom; this room overlooks the stable yard. Toiletries are bespoke, beds super-comfortable and furnishings discreetly luxurious.

Downstairs there’s a large drawing room where you can relax in front of the fire with a paper or a book, while breakfast is taken in a dining room with a fantastic view framed by the Old Rectory’s magnificent cedar tree.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome – though zoned along with the resident dogs – and there’s stabling for your horse. For riders and walkers there’s a boot room where you can store muddy clothes and if the weather is cold there’s even a sauna in the basement. Dinners available by arrangement, supper trays are available for a more informal meal and there are of course pubs in the area. However the Old Rectory is licensed with a small but select wine list and an honesty bar so there’s every temptation to stay in and enjoy what you’ve got.

Location

The Old Rectory is set in the tiny hamlet of Wheathill, mid-way between Bridgenorth and Ludlow.

The county of Shropshire is an undiscovered gem and it has something for everyone. Beautiful market towns, classic English villages, historic houses, ancient castles and stunning, unspoilt scenery.  Ludlow, described by John Betjeman as “probably the loveliest town in England”, is a mecca for foodies. But there’s Bridgnorth too and Much Wenlock – both within 20 miles.

Ironbridge is known as the cradle of the Industrial Revolution and has 10 museums and the Severn Valley Railway steams between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster – a must for rail enthusiasts and for those just want to watch the countryside go by in style.

For those who like the great outdoors, South Shropshire is the ideal place for walking, cycling and riding. From The Old Rectory B&B you are perfectly located to step out along the literally hundreds of miles of footpaths and bridleways which criss-cross the county. The B&B has maps and route cards to help you plan your days and we can provide picnics with just a little bit of notice.

Reviews

"Large house set in tranquil grounds, fantastic room with distant views (and huge en suite) and excellent breakfasts. Very solicitous landlady (dog lover) full of helpful suggestions and insights in the area - where to prioritise given limited visit. Would recommend the in your room dinner option. Altogether excellent experience"

  • Bio : Your hosts here are Andrew and Isobel Barnard. Isobel is a fantastic cook, which is just as well as some of her guests arrive famished after hours on horseback. Though never intrusive, she is never too busy to help advise her guests on the best things to see and do.
