I've stayed here another three times since my last review.
It's been reurbished and is now better than ever. Attention to detaol glows from every part. Gorgeous tolietries in the bathrooom, quality herbal teas as well as tea and coffee in the rooms, there's even hot chocolate! The beds are so comfy, the rustic farmhouse just charming, a great place for a romantic break and to visit the beautiful countryside. There are piglets, hens, ducks and geese in and around the farm, beautifully kept in a real farmyard setting around the simply gorgeous farmhouse. It's a real privialege to share this space with Cathy and Nick. Breakfast is divine. A choice of cereals, lovely yoghurts, home baked bread, home made jams and your choice of Shrewley Farm eggs along with locally sourced English Breakfast ingredients. This time we had tomatoes from Cathy's garden.
I use this as a oasis from the chaos of the NEC and birmingham when working at the NEC. It's the area's best kept secret and takes about 15-20mins door to door in the morning if you leave at 8am. If you are tired after a long day you can opt for Cathy's Pot Luck supper - you eat what she's cooking but she will try and cater for special diets if she can. I love coming here, so don't hog it! Nothing is too much trouble. The garden is lovely, the farm is delightful and it's fantastic value for money.
I wanted to add that you can barely hear the cockerels as they are in their barn, tucked up and happy until mid morning, so don't think you will be wakened in the early hours. Unless you have radar scanners for ears, you will barely know they are there. The odd clucking hen adds a lovely ambience to the almost silent country scene.
