The Old Post Office is a Grade II listed building just across the road from the Coalbrookdale museums and just up the road from Ironbridge. 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 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.
We have refurbished the house with comfort as our main priority. There are two large sofas to relax on and the beds all have memory foam toppers & linen is provided. There is free Wi-Fi and a selection of DVDs, games and books for all ages.
On the ground floor there is a sitting room with a log burner. This originally had the post office counter and retains the large shop-style window. There is also a dining room and a modern fitted kitchen on the ground floor with a fridge freezer and washer/dryer.
Upstairs there is a large double bedroom with a kingsize bed, a second bedroom with 3ft bunk beds and a modern bathroom with electric shower other the bath.

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''
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 up from the pavement to the house. Please consider this if you have impaired mobility.
