Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Beautifully decorated’ and properly bookish, this Grade II listed village library has been converted into a cheerful B&B near the River Severn. Run by Sarah and Tim Davis, the book-lined sitting room of the Georgian building retains the original library shelves; it’s a cosy spot, especially in chilly weather when the log-burner blazes. Writers lend their names to the well-equipped bedrooms. Chaucer opens on to a private garden terrace; Eliot is all lofty ceiling and long views towards the river. In each: waffle dressing gowns, fresh milk, a hot-water bottle. Breakfast ranges from continental variations to a traditional English, freshly cooked. Convenient for visiting the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ironbridge Gorge and the open-air museum at Blists Hill.
