Why We Love This Hotel

  • Occupying a Grade II-listed Georgian country house, this "delightful" hotel has "stylish and romantic dining" (The Daily Telegraph) and an expansive terrace.
  • The property is in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge, the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. The famous iron bridge over the River Severn, the first of its kind, was built in 1779 and is 10 minutes' walk from the hotel.
  • Ironbridge has nine museums and sites of historic interest, which trace the story of the Industrial Revolution and give an insight into Victorian life.
  • The hotel's Chez Maw restaurant offers fine-dining dishes with modern British and European influences.
  • Telford is around 10 minutes' drive from the hotel, while the northern part of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is around 15 minutes' drive away—you could climb The Wrekin, which offers impressive views of Shropshire and is the site of an Iron Age hill fort.
  • The ruins of Buildwas Abbey, an English Heritage site, are around five minutes' drive from the hotel.
  • Attingham Park, an 18th-century mansion set in 200 acres of parkland roamed by fallow deer, is around 15 minutes' drive away.
