What a wonderful place Alcott Farm is, peaceful, idyllic and welcoming. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner and she is a kind, warm person where service is central to everything she does.

Ideal for a few days, week or even just the one night on business. Great pub just at the end of the road and plenty to do on site and around. You would never know you were 20 mins from Solihull and only 25 mins from the centre of Birmingham!

I look forward to my next visit when im in the area

Beautiful setting, warm and comfy room with wifi, plentiful choice at breakfast and eggs from the farm. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts, great when you're travelling alone. Don't expect perfect decor, it's a homely farm house, not a corporate hotel! Cost £5 more than website stated, but I thought it was well worth it.

This lovely farmhouse in its picturesque setting of rolling countryside and fishing lakes is the perfect place to unwind, particularly after a business trip to Birmingham.

For travellers wishing a tranquil retreat, Alcott Farm offers a warm welcome, excellent food and comfortable rooms.

With easy access to motorway networks, this is my preferred accommodation for overnight stays in Birmingham and I am truly astonished at some reviewers' derogatory comments.

Stayed at Alcott Farm for a weekend (7th Sept - 9th September 2012) - The drive up towards the farmhouse is just the beginning as you are welcomed by the lovely and tranquil sight of horses grazing and anglers fishing and the feeling of rural England at its best. Jane is a welcoming host who goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable and as relaxing as the setting you have around you. The choice at breakfast better than the many hotels and B&B's I have stayed at. You simply couldn't ask for more and absolute value for money! The beds are 5* comfortable with the linen of high quality and cleanliness of the rooms of the highest standard. A great B&B in a fantastic location and a host who knows how to look after her guests. Thank you and see you very soon:)."

For a farmhouse they use the cheapest ingredients for their food and have cheap quality sheets.

Rude service from a tall man who worked their who had not had a shower for weeks.

Should be at least half the price they charge.

I'm amazed at the reviews this place gets. 70s furnishings and decoration, lumpy uncomfortable bed, shower didn't work, no cold water in the bathroom and cheap sausages for breakfast. The price was very high. Poor value for money.

I stayed for 4 nights, 24th to 28th August 2012 and was very pleased I chose this B&B. Jane is a very friendly host, nothing is too much trouble and the breakfasts were plentiful and very tasty, starting with a choice cereals, large farm breakfast or variations if preferred, followed by as much toast and preserves as required. The large grounds around the farm are beautiful, the long driveway up to the farm is impressive, leading to a very large gravelled parking area, so no messy farm yard to contend with. The room I had was spacious and had views over the garden, koi pool and fields. The farm is well positioned for sight seeing or events around the Midlands, Stratford, Broadway, NEC, Black Country museum etc, and is only a few miles from Birmingham city centre, there is also a very nice country pub at the end of the lane, serving quality meals and real ales.
