If you are looking for an exquisite "escape from it all" then I can recommend Willow End. Glenn and Tina provide a perfect get away, lovely location and fantastic accommodation. Breakfast is as you'd expect from a great B&B, but if you chose to sample Tina's authentic Thai cuisine for dinner, then you are in for a REAL treat! If... More

Enjoyed an excellent stop over at Willow End recently. We were warmly welcomed by Tina and shown to our very comfortable and scrupulously clean room, where we could enjoy a very welcome cup of tea (only fresh milk with Tina, none of that UHT portion pack rubbish!) and excellent shower (good pressure and temperature). We had chosen to eat here... More

Dear Restless - thank you for your review - it's so nice to see that Tina's culinary creations hit the spot with our guests - makes the occasional nagging from 'Chef' to get the Thai herbs and spices planted worthwhile. We loved meeting you both and hope to be able to share a glass with you again sometime in the... More

For me Willow End is a welcome site after a long drive from Wales to see family! I am made to feel so welcome more like a member of the family than a guest! I usually have the same ensuite room at the back overlooking the garden. I can always guarantee that I will sleep well as the setting is... More

We are a group of four and we wanted to check out the Cannock mountain bike trails. We opted to book in at Willow End B&B as it was so close to the trails. When we arrived there was a substantial drive for us to park both a van and a car on. We were greeted by Tina who welcomed... More

Hi again and many thanks for taking the time to leave us such a nice review. You brought some great weather with you and we're glad you enjoyed the Mountain Biking and Tina's great breakfast.

We chose this B&B because, from the website, it looks as if it is secluded and quiet. Actually it is in a residential cul-de-sac, and we couldn't open our bedroom window because of noise from the passing (and fast) traffic on the upper main road. Also our window looked straight onto a extremely tall conifer hedge, which was quite oppressive.... More

Hi, pleased you like the Cannock Chase and plan to return. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review however we believe it’s shame when guests say “everything is fine” face to face and then creep off to leave us the poorest review we’ve ever received. The discerning visitor will likely pay more attention to our receiving the... More

Family camping nearby in Cannock Chase so very near for the bike trails and other facilities.Very clean, comfortable with a great breakfast. Tina and Glen very welcoming. A great base for exploring the area which has a lot to offer.

Hi Pat and many thanks for the lovely review - we're really pleased that you enjoyed your stay here with us. As you say there is so much to do and see in the area - this must be one of the beautiful and least known areas in the UK ? We look forward to welcoming you to Willow End... More

I chose this B&B due to the option of a home cooked Thai meal in the evening and the proximity to the Cannock Chase trails. The meal was excellent (and in generous portions!) and I very much enjoyed exploring the Slitting Mill area afterwards. The B&B was immaculate, in a lovely quiet location and Glenn and Tina really do make... More

We know how busy our lives can be these days so it is really appreciated that you have taken the time to leave us your great review.

I stayed in early may for a few days whilst in the area on business. The atmosphere is the most relaxing and is like home away from home. I would definitely recommend trying the Thai cuisine that is offered. Cleanliness here is taken to a whole new level and the accommodation worthy of 5 stars. Highly recommended.

Thank you for making the time to leave us your splendid review. We do try and make our B&B as restful as possible and it's really nice to see that appreciated.

Just minutes from the Chase trails this was the perfect b&b for us after a day mountain biking in the forest. Our twin room was well equipped, newly furnished and immaculately clean.
