An amazing holiday - great location, perfect owners, an amazing get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. I will certainly be returning which tells you everything you need to know... can't fault John and Linda or being the perfect hosts.

Warm and friendly in every sense of the word. We experienced true hospitality and the delicious breakfast served in the sunny breakfast room the following morning is definitely worth a mention. A big thanks to John and his wife for their friendliness and help in exploring all the best spots of the beautiful Midlands Meander.

We stayed at Pleasant Places for my fiancés 35th birthday celebrations. The place is lovely; gardens peaceful, quiet and full of flowers. I felt the stress of city-living literally drain from me during my one-night stay. Would definitely recommend to anyone! Hosts were fantastic too, and arranged a nice surprise b-day cake and champers for us! Country-living at its best!

We had a most pleasant stay with John and Linda. John is a charming guy, who went the extra mile to ensure that our only meal with them (breakfast) was a great experience. The garden is magnificent, and the atmosphere is warm and homely.
