“A lovely stay in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

The house and gardens far exceeded expectations, they are both immaculate. The breakfast was just about perfect. Jane and John are a lovely couple, most hospitable and Jane 'went the extra mile' in more ways than one! They had booked us a taxi to take us to a wedding, the taxi was late, so Jane jumped in her car and took us herself! I would heartily recommend this B&B and would not hesitate to stay there again

Beautiful home and grounds with a warm welcome from the owners. Excellent breakfast and good pub/restaurant in walking distance. Easy access to Birmingham city via train station and short drive to NEC.

The hosts were very welcoming to their lovely rural home. Rooms are accessed by a very grand staircase and the one I stayed in large, comfortably furnished, and very quiet.

Breakfast was great and was a good start to my day.

I am not surprised by the glowing testimony of all their reviews. Jane and John go that extra league not just mile for their guests. What with John ensuring I could drive in the morning by deicing my windscreen and Jane ensuring I ate at lunchtime by making me sandwiches each day. I arrived 'home' to find my bedroom lamps on and all my furniture and clothing magically neatly titied in such a welcoming and inviting way. It really was home away from home and because I couldn't face going out to dinner in the evening I was welcomed to reheat dinner each evening for which I was very grateful.
I would advise ANYONE working or visiting the area to spurn the usual hotels and come and be pampered by the kindest most thoughtful hosts who are litterally 10 minutes drive from the NEC.

Room Tip: I've only stayed in one and it was just perfect with 2 arm chairs and very welcoming and comfort...

Simply a joy staying here as I have a couple of times recently, and will continue to do, to alleviate the misery of exhibiting at the NEC.
Try the Malt Shovel just down the road for food....Fish City.

Our company has attended the NEC every June for the past 4 years and every year stayed with Jane and John in their superb house. After a long day on the stand at the NEC, to sit down with a cup of tea in their garden and rest our weary feet is absolute heaven. In the evening, dinner at The Bulls Head with superb beers and food is the perfect end to each day. Breakfast is beautifully cooked and keeps us going all day on the stand. The NEC is 10 minutes drive away and staying at the Gatehouse is very convenient for business visitors. We are back in 2014 for MACH which is in April and a 5 day show and possibly Subcon for 3 days in June, we have our accomodation booking already confirmed, thanks to Jane and John!

Room Tip: Overlooking the superb garden

What a great place to stay! Beautiful house and gardens overlooking rolling countryside ... You'd never guess you were so close to the NEC!

Jane & John are so welcoming and with an excellent breakfast every morning you're set up for the day! The rooms are spacious, comfortable and immaculate.

Couldn't ask for more and hope to be back in the not too distant future. Couldn't recommend it highly enough!
