My mother and I had a wonderful stay at the Atherstone Guest House and can't thank Ally & Ruth Beaton (and smiley son) for their hospitality. Clean, comfortable, quiet, and everything you could want from a B&B.

We were made extremely welcome by our hosts Ruth and Ally from the minute we arrived. The breakfast was delicious with a good selection, an excellent start to our day before heading on. We only wish we could have stayed for... More

I stayed one night on a business trip and felt really at home. Ally and Ruth are very welcoming and helpful. The bedroom was lovely with high quality bedding and very comfy mattress - the ensuite was amazing. All immaculately clean and free wifi throughout the house. But best of all was the beautifully cooked breakfast with high quality ingredients... More

The young couple that runs this place have a lot on their plates with two small children and running a B&B but are doing it so well. We had the twin room and it was a perfect size,... More
