The Old Orleton Inn: Quintessential Countryside Charm in Shropshire

The Old Orleton Inn

Nestled in the beautiful countryside of Wellington, Shropshire lies a stunning 17th century former coaching inn that has been lovingly transformed into a contemporary boutique hotel and local gathering spot. Brimming with rich history and modern comforts, The Old Orleton Inn is an idyllic country retreat.

👉 Origins Trace Back to the 14th Century

With foundations dating back over 600 years to the 14th century, parts of this charming building predate the Tudor era. Historical records show that a hostelry or inn has stood on this site since at least 1400, making it one of the oldest inns in Shropshire.

💠 Fun Fact: Queen Victoria’s staff once stayed at the inn when touring the area in the 19th century. At the time it was not considered worthy enough lodging for the Queen herself.

Over the Centuries, The Old Orleton Inn:

  • Hosted up to 4 daily mail coaches heading to London
  • Operated as a farmhouse and private home for a period
  • Became the lively Falcon Inn pub in the 1970s
  • Underwent award-winning renovations in 2006 to become the boutique hotel it is today
