Default Is a crate the only way to housebreak?

Hi, I'm new here...
I have two dogs, my oldest, Worf (8), is a well behaved , loveable border collie cross, a couple of months ago, I took in a little jack russell *****, Blackie(3), who was left on her own for days at a time and I was told she was house trained, apart from a couple of accidents per week, which I could handle.
The problem is she just does her mess everywhere in the house, which is making the carpets smell really bad despite constant disinfecting. My other dog sleeps on my bedroom floor at night, I feel mean making her sleep on her own in order to train her , especially as she is a very nervous little dog.
She goes out for walks with my other dog, she sometimes does her business outside, for which I praise her for. But sometimes, she'll come back indoors, and go and wee as soon as her lead is hung up!!!!When she does mess in the house, I usually tell her she's naughty and put her outside, hoping that eventually she will start to go the door if she needs to wee.
I know how to house break a puppy, surely there must be an easier way to train an adult dog than to keep her in a small confined area all the time.
I am at my wits end, so any advice would be most appreciated
