I have been lucky to stay at the Kilsby Country House for a couple of days during June 2009, with my friends. Besides participating in the Man vs Horse marathon we had a great time and a lot of fun staying there to rest from a daily stress and rush. In fact this place is perfect for that purpose. It is a mile away from the town. The area around is beautiful and quiet, with a lot of trees, river full of trout and hills – perfect place for backpacking, biking or fishing. The Kilsby’s owners – Sue and Chris Cooper are really friendly and always taking care of their guests comfort, regardless if you wish to stay alone or stay around nice people and warm atmosphere. For me it is impossible to forget a great breakfast, made with cottage style home made products prepared by Sue and Chris, and a view of my happy friends, sitting around the table! The guest house is really well maintained and fully equipped (you can also prepare your own meal if you wish). It is enough roomy to accommodate ten people, but a couple can still count on a double bed room as well. Everything inside is comfortable and cozy. Outside you will find a lot of place for barbecue, or to play with your friends.
I used to travel a lot in Europe, mainly in Poland, France and Switzerland, and till now only the Kilsby has made such positive impression on me. I fully recommend Kilsby Country House for any time, any season, and I can not wait for my next visit over there.

We visit Kilsby house once a year and have done so for the last 10 years or more. Given more time we would be constant visitors. From the beautiful setting in the Welsh valleys to the warm and wonderful hospitality of Sue and Chris Cooper, our visit is the highlight of our year. Regardless of the size of the group we are always made welcome. The rooms are spotless, furnished with homemade bara brith cakes, jams and beverage making facilities. The whole place is the perfect setting for breakaways or weekend rests. In terms of customer care and service Kilsby sets the bar very high yet we are constantly impressed year upon year. Looking forward to the next visit already.....

This is a great place to stay and hosts Sue and Chris offer a very warm welcome in their lovely country house. I have stayed here for pleasure and enjoyed walking in the largely unknown hills, so jumped at the chance to return when I had a business meeting in the area.

Would thoroughly recommend staying here.

Have now stayed at the Kilsby 3 times and have always had a warm welcome.

It is in a tranquil and secluded location, ideal if you're looking for a quiet break.
Rooms are clean and tidy - not en-suite but well appointed with tea/coffee/biscuits/bara brith (if you don't know what it is you'll have to come and find out!)
It's run by Sue and Chris who, although not originally from the area, have great local knowledge if you want to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside. Chris is also a keen angler and can advise on all the best places to fish if you fancy casting a line.
An ideal base for anyone mad enough to want to get involved with one of Green Events activities.
Great breakfasts too!

Highly recommended. I have personally stayed at the Kilsby every year for many years and my friends and i are always happy to return. We always get a great welcome and the atmosphere is so friendly. Being athletes we get a heathly choice at breakfast with freshly baked bread, cereal,yogurt, fruit and porridge although it is hard to resist the superb cooked full english on offer but enjoy the second day of our stay. The setting is spectacular with views across the welsh hills and although in a quiet location it is still within easy walking distance to the village amenities. In all i would say it is great value for money and give 10/10 to all aspects of our visit. Very enjoyable.

Was made to feel welcome right from the start. The House is a lovelly old building with heaps of character but lovely and warm too. Little touches in the rooms such as a slice of bara brith on arrival make it a touch above the rest.

I would advise anyone to stay there who enjoys beign out in the country.
