Can't recommend this B&B highly enough. A beautiful house with well-kept gardens and lovely rural views. Our room was large, well furnished and spotlessly clean. The well-cooked breakfast is served in a lovely dining room with views across the terrace and garden to open countryside. Jane and John made us feel very welcome and we would certainly stay there again.

It's winter and it's cold (4° Celsius or 39° Farenheit) and it's already nice. How beautiful must this place be in summer? Nice gardens, extensive breakfast. Very clean. Not the most updated bathrooms, but who cares in such a nice environment. If you are looking for something in stainless stell without a heart and soul you shouldn't come here. If... More

I stayed here for one night last weekend while attending Crufts. Although it was a very brief visit I was very impressed and would definitely stay there again. Jane, who runs this guest house, was very friendly and welcoming. My room was a great size, very clean and the bathroom was huge. The house itself is gorgeous, with a fantastic... More

I stayed for three nights on business and found The Gatehouse a haven of peace and tranquility at the end of long days, and very good value. The house is packed with original Victorian features — the staircase is amazing! — and my room was comfortable, cosy and spotless. There was something reassuringly British about the ensuite's salmon pink fittings... More

A few short minutes from the hustle and bustle of Birminham and the NEC Jane Emmet runs this delightful bed and breakfast in a pocket of the Warwickshire countryside. The victorian era house and gardens are both immaculate and delightful. Jane an attentive and friendly host. Certainly a place to return to!

Although I only paid a fleeting visit overnight, I found the gatehouse a very picturesque and well maintained location. I was warmly greeted by the proprietor who madde me feel special and very welcome. The room I was allocated was totally suitable and very comfortable. The in-room facilities were more than adequate and clean. Breakfast was equally pleasing served by... More

We stayed here for three nights when we were visiting various locations in and around Birmingham. The house is easy to find and is located about four miles from the M42. The first impressions were favourable as the house is set in beautifully-maintained grounds. This theme continued inside the house, which is immaculate. Our room was exceptionally spacious, and spotlessly... More

We needed an overnight stay before attending a wedding in Birmingham and are so glad that we found the Gatehouse. An extremely comfortable night was followed by a delicious breakfast, listening to Classic FM and overlooking the beautiful garden; the perfect way to start a busy day!

I stayed here with my Dad and my friend for one night recently. We chose Gatehouse because of the good reviews and because it was close to the two National Trust Properties that we wanted to visit. The weather was lovely and arriving from visiting the first NT property we found another lovely house and garden at Gatehouse! John and... More
