I was immediately met by Jane who welcomed and offered to help with bags. I was taken to a very comfortable room, and although not en-suite (which I knew on booking) the very large bathroom was only next door. The house had character and made a nice change from anonymous chain hotel rooms. There was an excellent breakfast, and cooked...

What an exceptional B & B, probably the best that I have stayed in, hence the title of the review. Great reception, fantastic room and fantastic facilities. Breakfast was exceptional as well, perfect amount and well presented. You must try this B & B as it is the perfect base for the West Midlands.

Stayed for one night on a golf trip to Solihull. Our host, Jane ,was most welcoming and showed us to our rooms. The building and gardens are magnificent. Nice room with good facilities. Excellent cooked breakfast taken in dining room overlooking gardens where we watched a green woodpecker on lawn and about 30 Goldfinches using birdfeeders. Whilst the B&B is...

Premier inn was full and the internet found me this gem! Jane was most welcoming, nothing was to much trouble. I had a double room over looking the beautiful formal gardens. Breakfast was freshly cooked and more then ample with great sausages and tea! For the same rate as a nondescript national budget chain there is simply no comparison. Will...

We stayed at the Gatehouse for five nights while we were waiting for our house sale to go through. Jane and John could not have been better hosts. We found it very friendly and welcoming. We stayed with our two young children, they loved the big gardens and Jane's very nice breakfast. The Gatehouse is definitely a place we would...

My brother, his wife and I were attending a nearby party last weekend and found the Gatehouse online - we were glad we did! It's a lovely rather grand Victorian house with large gardens near the pretty village of Barston. We were the only guests - good sized rooms overlooking the garden or fields. The rooms are traditionally furnished, the...

Can't recommend this B&B highly enough. A beautiful house with well-kept gardens and lovely rural views. Our room was large, well furnished and spotlessly clean. The well-cooked breakfast is served in a lovely dining room with views across the terrace and garden to open countryside. Jane and John made us feel very welcome and we would certainly stay there again.
