“Home from Home..”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We have been staying at the Gatehouse for several years on and off and have always received a warm welcome, I could not recommend it more highly! Excellent breakfasts! Beautiful gardens!

A real gem!

It really feels like you are in the country but only a short distance from Birmingham airport.

My wife and I have stayed at the Gatehouse before and reckon it is the best on our list of B & B's. It is peaceful, spotless, the rooms are bigger than usual and the gardens beautiful. Breakfast is splendid (and the Malt Shovel up the road serves excellent food too), but on top of all this Jane and John are such great company and so helpful. Jane helped me with a couple of problems on my iPad and taught me two or three techniques I had not found in the manuals. Where else do you get all this?

This night was the last one of our "round" Wales tour and it was a pitty to leave the mansion that early in the morning, would have liked to stay longer. Jane was so friendly to get up earlier than usual just because of our nervosity to catch the flight - thanks for that. Room was beautiful with superb view into the garden. Birds sang us gently into our dreams, we really enjoyed it and recommend both accomodation and host.
The detectability could be a bit better, rushed several times along the location without finding it (perhaps our eyes...).

After a busy day at the Gardeners World Live show at the NEC we arrived tired & weary, Jane warmly welcomed us and made us feel comfortable in our spotlessly clean, lovely room in beautiful surroundings. Jane was very helpful inrecommending a local resturant for dinner, the Maltshovel which we highly recommend.
The following morning we had a really enjoyable breakfast. Jane & John were wonderful hosts and we cannot fault them, a really lovely place to stay.

a warm welcome from Jane who was gardening when we arrived.What a beautiful place to stay.We were here for a friend's 70th birthday meal at the Malt Shovel just down the road.Talking to some of the other guests,they were mostly staying in Travel Lodges or Premier Inns and quite a few of them were disappointed,especially when we told them about the Gatehouse.It's one of the nicest places we have stayed in,nothing was too much trouble and everything was spotless.Jane is obviously very proud of her garden and invited us to walk round it and sit outside if we wished.The breakfast was excellent too,would definitely stay her again if we were down this way.Loved the roses in our room!

If impersonal minimalism is your thing, this isn't for you. But if you want a warm welcome, a thoughtful and friendly host, comfort, peace and quiet, and a spacious, spotless and comfortable room in beautiful surroundings, followed by an excellent breakfast, then look no further. This is a really lovely place to stay - cannot fault it.
