Reviewed August 25, 2013

We arrived on Sunday and were made very welcome. Our room was lovely and very clean. My husband wasn't very well and we stayed in the room for the day and weren't made to feel as if we shouldn't be there. We had a lovely restful break - which we needed. We have a friend in Rugby who we were able to spend some time with. We even managed to fit an extra day onto our stay with no problems. Popped across to Stratford-upon-Avon for a day (when we stay again we will try a find a scenic route across there rather than the motorways). Looking forward to going back.

As the title says this was our second visit to the lovely Shepherds Row.On arrival meeting Jane,Charles and Alice was like seeing family again,so friendly and welcoming.We were given the same room and the standards were as usual 5 Star,and the lovely homemade biscuits were just what was needed.Our reason for staying was the Spitfire Proms,again the kindness of the owners was amazing in taking us (with chairs food,wine etc) to the venue and taking us back to Shepherds Row after the Event,also to be invited for a nightcap on the patio when we got back was so kind and shows what lovely people jane,Charles and Alice are.I could write alot more for this review but as I wrote on my first review Shepherds Row is "Just Perfect".
Thanks again,We will be back.
Lisa and Richard.

This delightful B&B is easily a hotel standard establishment, with the range of large fluffy towels and all the 'bits' you find in a good hotel. Jane and Charles were very attentive and apologetic about the flood which was out of their control! We didn't even notice the mats in the dining room until Charles pointed them out! We had the annex/family room, which was very spacious with a mini fridge, dining table and was well appointed. This establishment is highly recommended.

Room Tip: If available ask for the annex.

Excellent stay, despite the B&B being flooded out and my classic car nearly being submerged. Charles was a brilliant host and was more concerned about my car than his house......the must have a breakfast are Charles's poached eggs!

Thank you for leaving such a lovely review despite such trying circumstances. It was an eventful weekend but the good news is that we're well on the way to being cleared up and Shepherds Row is trading as usual - minus a dining room carpet for a few days.

I stayed at Shepherds Row for one night on route to Whitchurch on my bike. I was made to feel very welcome and bike secured I settled down to a great nights sleep before waking to a hearty full english breakfast. I would definitely make an effort to stay here again. Fantastic!

Really enjoyed our stay and can't fault the accommodation or the hosts, Jane and Charles. Felt comfortable from the moment we arrived until the moment we left (apart from the self-inflicted discomfort of my hangover). Comfy room, tasty breakfast and fantastic, homemade almond biscuits in the room each day! If your looking for somewhere to stay in the area, ignore any of those sole less chain hotels and stay at Shepherds Row.

Thank you so much to lovely Jane and Charles for being the perfect hosts and doing everything possible to make our stay comfortable and stress-free.
We stayed one night for a friend's wedding and Jane and Charles were more than accommodating, helpfully providing a room for us to change in on the morning of our arrival and even (very kindly!) offering lifts to and from the event.
We stayed in the family annex with our two children and were delighted with the spacious, warm rooms, comfortable beds and thoughtful touches - such as jellybeans on the welcome tray for our children and delicious homemade biscuits as well as fresh milk and a jug of iced fruit squash.
We were looking forward to breakfast after reading the reviews and it did not disappoint - from fresh fruit salad to the full English with new-laid eggs and home-made bread, everything was delicious! Our children particularly enjoyed Jane taking them to see the chickens afterwards.
Thank you for Jane and Charles for making us feel so welcome and well looked after - it felt like we were staying with friends and hope there may be an opportunity for us to return again some day. To everyone else, believe the 5* reviews - they don't lie!
