Just come back from a two night stay at the Pear Tree Farm in Wigmore Herefordshire (borders with Shropshire). We stayed in the Barn bedroom.
The setting is incredibly tranquil with views onto rolling hills with Sheep. The garden is a wonderful spot to sit and enjoy the company of Steve and Jill's pets (Meg, Mol and Freddie). The house itself is simply wonderful. Fabulous fireplaces, flagstone flooring and wooden flooring. Beams. Lots and lots of character. You get the idea!
If you are a foodie then you will simply love the breakfast. Steve and Jill support local produce and why not when its so good. They also make their own jams and chutneys which you will get to sample. I am quite awkward with my breakfast but had a marvellous kedgeree each morning. Steve makes the bread for your toast. There is also cereals, juices, fruit, full English and I get the impression that nothing is too much trouble here.
When we came in from our excursions we would go into the guest lounge (wonderful fireplace, views, nice mantle clock) and have tea with wonderful cakes, biscuits etc.
There were really nice touches in our room. A bottle of Sloe gin. Reading books (including many humours ones and plenty of info on the local tourist sites). Candle. Fab Molton Brown toilettries. Perfume. Bottled water.
If I ran my own bed and breakfast it would be just like this!
Even more important then all this is how welcome Steve and Jill made us feel. I would highly recommend them and their wonderful home to anyone. You won't be dissapointed.
