Description from owner


Celebrated in the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics as Danny Boyle showed us England's green and pleasant land morphing into a landscape of furnaces and smoke stacks as the industrial revolution began... Coalbrookdale is where it happened.

The industrial heritage is stamped on Coalbrookdale and the surrounding areas in a charming and fascinating way. The history is all around in the landscape and the architecture.

The Old Post Office is a spacious Grade II listed building just across the road from the Coalbrookdale museums. It is right in the heart of the World Heritage Site and makes a perfect base from which to explore the seat of the Industrial Revolution and the Ironbridge Gorge.


The area is popular with walkers and cyclists and there are a number of great walks on the doorstep. There is ample on street parking outside and a secure cycle shed at the back of the house.If you don't fancy driving (or walking) there is a bus stop right outside where you can catch a bus to Ironbridge or go into Telford to do some shopping or visit the large town park.


The Wi-Fi is fast and free! Watch TV online on the smart TV or log into your Netflix.

There is an Xbox with games to keep the youngsters amused.


We have refurbished the house with comfort as our main priority. It is particularly suitable for families with children. Why not start the day by walking the little ones to Enginuity just 2 minutes away -if you have the Museums pass it's all free for a year. We include a travel cot and a high chair and there is a selection of DVDs, games and books for all ages.


At the front the sitting room is the old post office with the large shop window making it light and cheerful with a restful view of trees opposite. There are two large sofas to relax on, a smart TV and a log burner for the colder days.

The dining room has been recently -redecorated in the William Morris style with period furniture and a high chair for little ones.

The modern fitted kitchen has an oven and induction hob, fridge freezer, washer/dryer and a good supply of cookware.

UPSTAIRS all the beds have have memory foam toppers & linen is provided.

The large L-shaped landing provides space for an antique desk and a variety of local prints on the walls.

The large double bedroom at the front has an antique style brass, kingsize bed, a wardrobe and chest of drawers.

The second bedroom has 3ft bunk beds and a wardrobe & drawers providing plenty of clothes storage for two people.

A large modern bathroom with electric shower other the bath completes the upstairs rooms.


There is plenty of on-street parking outside. The house has no garden but there is a small terrace area outside the kitchen with a small table and two chairs for a glass of something in the sunshine or a cup of coffee (or a cigarette).


3 minute walk to The Museum of Iron.3 minute walk to Enginuity (interactive museum for children).

2 minute walk to nearest pub.

5 minute walk to children's play park.

15 minute walk into Ironbridge, the museum of the Gorge & nearest shop (Co-op with car parking, and pay a visit to the antique centre behind it)

Ironbridge has plenty of excellent cafe's and restaurants so you've no need to cook if you'd rather not.

5 miles to Telford -the nearest large town- which has many shopping opportunities and a large town park with a fantastic play area, crazy golf and picturesque ponds and landscaping.

16 miles to Shrewsbury, one of England's finest medieval market towns and home to the fictional Brother Cadfael.

The Museums use a passport ticket system, which on their website says....''The Annual Passport Ticket represents fantastic value. It allows unlimited daytime admission to all 10 Ironbridge Gorge Museums, during normal opening hours, so you can return as often as you like for one year. If after 12 months you have still not visited particular sites, you can return at any time in the future to make one free visit to the sites that you've missed''

We would ask our lovely guests to leave the property clean and tidy by 10.30am on the day of departure. Arrival is any time after 4pm.

PLEASE NOTE: The Old Post Office is on the road to Ironbridge. With the bus stop right outside, please expect some traffic noise.There are five steep steps from the pavement up to the house. Please consider this if you have impaired mobility.

Very Good

“Lovely little getaway”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2019

This house is a perfect little get away for anyone wanting to stay close to ironbridge with the town just minuite walk away theres no need for worrying about finding somewhere to park. The house itself is kept beautifully, and has it's own character, for couples this is a romantic property and the bath is a must. Would definitely stay here again.

“Very nice”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2019

Impeccably clean and very well laid out. Quiet location. Modern but cottage style decor. Wood burner was lovely to make use of. Not far from the centre of Ironbridge. Really pleased with booking all in all.

“Amazing house in a wonderful location”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2018

Wow, what a week we have had. This house is just perfect for our little family. A huge master bedroom with the most comfortable bed of anywhere we have stayed and a wonderful kids room with bunk beds. The bathroom is massive. The kitchen has everything that was needed and more. The dinning room is homely and the lounge is great. Use the outside furniture to site out a couple of evenings, out the front watching the world go by. The area is wonderful,so much to do. Obviously the 10 museums of Ironbridge are a highlight but we also loved Much Wenlock, Ludlow, Bridgenorth,RAF Cosford, Severn Valley Railway, Telford Steam Railway and various English Heritage sites. The pub just up the road was one of the biggest highlights, super friendly with a great selection of ale at ridiculously low priced. I cannot recommend a stay highly enough.

“Very comfortable and convenient location”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2017

The Old Post Office is very comfortably furnished and is equipped with all that is needed. There is on road parking right outside and also right outside is a bus stop (for both directions). It is an excellent location for visiting the attractions many of which can be reached on foot. Ample shops and pubs are in the area and numerous lovely walks. Should we return to the area we would not hesitate to stay there again.

“Lovely cottage in a great location.”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2017

This was our second visit to The Old Post Office, so obviously we wanted to go back and this time didn't disappoint, even though we had horrible weather. The only thing that would make it better would be a downstairs wc, however we realise that in an old place like this maybe it would not be possible. Would visit again.
