Holden House is a beautiful place to stay. Angie made us very welcome and we enjoyed tea and cake (lemon sponge my favourite) on arrival on the patio. The view is gorgeous. I would never get bored of it! The room was very clean as was the bathroom. The breakfast was delicious. I hope we can stay again if you... More

Yesterday I just realised that I have been staying here at Angie's gloriously located B and B for well over ten years and never submitted a review! Well, Angie, better late than never. In a nutshell, for the price of many of the local "motels" and chains around the area you get to stay in a genuinely family run establishment,... More

Angie and Barrie were great in welcoming us when we arrived. The accommodation was lovely in all aspects of comfort and location. Looking at the Swans, Ducks and Herons around the waters edge was so relaxing it certainly added to the atmosphere of the surroundings. With a great selection of watering holes to provide a great choice of food and... More

I arrived at Holden House wet and bedraggled after a full day's cycling from the other side of Stafford in pouring rain. I was welcomed - by name, and shown to my room followed by a gorgeous scone topped with lashings of jam and cream and a strong mug of tea. Local eating places were recommended (and good) and breakfast... More

This must be one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. Unfortunately on arrival we were very late due to roadworks on the M1 but even after arriving at 11.30pm (!) Angie was the perfect host and made sure we were still made to feel welcome, even though we had to whisper to one another! The room was... More
