We stayed at the Gatehouse for five nights while we were waiting for our house sale to go through. Jane and John could not have been better hosts. We found it very friendly and welcoming. We stayed with our two young children, they loved the big gardens and Jane's very nice breakfast. The Gatehouse is definitely a place we would... More

My brother, his wife and I were attending a nearby party last weekend and found the Gatehouse online - we were glad we did! It's a lovely rather grand Victorian house with large gardens near the pretty village of Barston. We were the only guests - good sized rooms overlooking the garden or fields. The rooms are traditionally furnished, the... More

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
