Recently stayed 2 nights in the Garden Cottage as an introduction to the area. This historic little cottage has been thoughtfully refurbished. Within easy walking distance are the Coalport China Museum and the Woodbridge Inn, a really great pub/restaurant. We ended up eating there both days, looking out on the river. Ironbridge is a walk or short drive along the river.
Chloe and Adam were welcoming but not intrusive and although the cottage is attached to the main house, we never felt over-looked. The woodland garden was fun to explore. We will certainly be back to try the fishing (you can buy a day or weekend licence from a local pub) and golf (one set of clubs available in cottage), which are both on the doorstep.
