“B & B Chusrch Stretton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We were visiting the area for a family party. A very warm & friendly welcome from Patrick & Madeline. awaita at Sayang House. This B & B is spotlessly clean with so many extras. We stayed in the lovely twin room ,who would think of a retractable drier line in the walk in shower! We wished that we could have stayed longer. If we are ever in this area again we will return and would highly recommend.

Room Tip: You need to bring no extras with you. Cooton wool buds and tips are provided, along with tissues in...

This B&B is excellent in all respects. There is a warm welcome from delightful Patrick, who cooks a superb breakfast; the pleasant comfortable bedroom has a fine en-suite with (oh joy!) proper-size bath sheets, not the pathetic offerings of so many other B&Bs; the lounge-dining area is lovely, with a wonderful garden view; and there is a kitchenette for guest use, very helpful for preparing picnic food or keeping bought stuff cool overnight. All in all, this is a top-class place that really cares about the comfort of its guests. We have now stayed there three times, and have every intention of returning again. Thanks, Patrick and Madeline.

If you are looking to stay in the Church Stretton area, you would be hard-pressed to find better than this. Lovely welcome from genial and obliging hosts. Very clean, spacious, comfortable en-suite rooms with all usual facilities, plus extras that others don't usually think about. Excellent meals, including evening meals if required. Fresh milk available as needed. Comfortable residents' lounge/dining area. Wide range of breakfast choices. We stayed 5 nights and would certainly go again. Highly recommended.

We were in that neck of the woods for a wedding, so we stayed only one night. Which is a shame, because Patrick and Madeline were very nice hosts. The room (the king sized bed) was clean and well sized, with a nice ensuite. And the view of their garden was spectacular. Patrick and Madeline were very nice hosts: interested and interesting. We will definitely return if in that part of the world (which was very pretty).

I could not give Sayang House anything less than the full five stars as it is probably the best B&B we have ever stayed in - and we have stayed in quite a few ! Excellent location, lovely house and beautiful garden. Patrick made us so welcome and we just felt instantly at home - and what a great home it is. A large, but really cosy, guests lounge and dining room with views of the garden downstairs, plus a kitchenette for guest use. Then three really well appointed bedrooms upstairs, all of which are a good size and beautifully furnished - and lovely big showers as a bonus. There was everything you could possibly want, including full size, good quality toiletries, home made biscuits and a plentiful supply of tea/coffe etc. A real bonus, as far as I am concerned, was none of those stupid little pots of milk - as much fresh milk as you needed from a fridge in the hall - plus bottles of mineral water to help yourself to as well. There was always home made cake to help yourself to when you got in too.
Now the breakfast was something else - so much choice - including Patricks fabulous home-cured bacon - and all cooked to perfection. Madeline will do an evening meal by arrangement and we ate in on two of the nights we were there and it was of the same standard as the breakfast. You get whatever madeline decides to cook, but that was not a problem at all as far as we were concerned, and she does ask if you have any dislikes - which led to some gentle teasing from Patrick regarding my pathalogical dislike of rocket ! (I cannot imagine why any self respecting chef would want to ruin a good dish with this vile Victorian weed !!!)
Patrick and Madeline's hospitality was first rate - they are such a lovely couple - and I don't think I can say anything else that has not already been said by other reviewers. We will most definately be going back - probably in September.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great and the proximity to the B-road was not a problem

Three of us stayed with Patrick and Madeline at Sayang House in May 2013.
We were made to feel very welcome by Patrick (Madeline was out working).

We have clicked 'Family' below, and so it was - a couple and a sister (all over 60)

Apart from the nice hospitality, three great features are:

- the large living room for guests (where, after our evening meal, we played cards using one of the highly suitable round oak tables;
- the large and attractive garden - large enough to have a stroll round before breakfast;
- the fact that they offer an evening meal - I don't think there is a pub in Hope Bowdler, so although
Church Stretton is not far away we were able to enjoy a cosy evening 'at home' (with flexible drinks offer to accompany our meal).

Although the road is quite frequented during the day it did not disturb during the night

Good breakfast.
Highly recommendable

We stayed at the Sayang House whilst attending a wedding nearby. Upon arrival we met Patrick who is very welcoming and a lovely host. He made us feel very welcome. The rooms are spacious, clean and have everything you need.

Our room overlooked the fantastic garden which is clearly very well looked after.

The full English breakfast in the morning hit the spot too.


Would definitely recommend this B&B!!
