“First time visit to Long Mynd, finding Highlands on Trip Advisor via Google search for places to stay in Church Stretton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

I'd heard about camping pods and the Long Mynd. Being December though I decided to look for hotels and B&Bs. The former were booked up and Highlands rated as as good place to stay. I read other reviews on Trip Advisor that said things like good value and relaxing stay.

The reviews I read were right - Lynn and Alan have a great place. Highlands has has been finished to a high standard making it one of the best B&B I've come across.

The breakfasts are good - cooked to order and at the time we asked for. What more could one ask for. No cheap sausage to be found here.

Lynn and Alan are well clued up on the area and can advise on where you want to go and what you need to do for your time by the Long Mynd taking the guess work out of our stay.

This part of Shropshire is truly special and staying at Highlands is too.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are good. The top floor has the highest vantage point with views of Long Mynd

This was a second visit to Highlands, once again a group for four for a walking weekend. This time we had Primrose and Magnolia rooms and again we found them well-decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The availability of the mini fridgest is a big boon alongside the fact that all the rooms can be twin bedded - great for groups of friends travelling together. We had a good cooked breakfast and there was cereal, yogurt and fruit to start with. Lynn and Alan very helpfully chilled a bottle of sparkling wine for us.
Highlands is on the edge of Church Stretton so the walk down for dinner is a bit of exercise - the plus side is the lovely views of the Long Mynd especially from the Balcony and Magnolia rooms.

Alan and Lynn's beautiful home was once again the perfect place to chill out and relax. A beautifully decorated house where the guest is made to feel special and pampered. Great value for money. Great food. Great views from the bedrooms. Great chats over tea and biscuits. We'll continue staying at Highlands for many years to come.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.

Thanks we had a very enjoyable stay. The magnolia room was lovely and spacious, v clean and erverything was provided. We loved walking around Church Stretton and enjoyed a trip to Ludlow and dinner at the Green Dragon. The hosts were really helpful and dried our wet clothes.
It is very good value for money and I would strongly recommend it.
The only thing that could be improved for me was the breakfast, which I felt was really good, but perhaps lacks a bit of imagination, but this is a tiny comment about an outstanding venue.

Alan H, Owner at Highlands Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review, November 18, 2013
Thanks for a terrific review Suzanne most appreciated. We are intrigued re your comment on the breakfast. We often agonise as to whether we provide enough variety! Given we often have to get groups of walkers away early and serve them all simultaneously increasing the choices of cooked can cause problems with the number of burner rings on the cooker! So we provide Muesli + a range of 8 branded Cereals, Fruit Segments, & Orange Juice to start. Scrambled, Fried, or poached farm eggs, local dry cured back bacon, baked beans, tomatoes & Mushrooms.
local sausages, Toast plus a variety of preserves. & of course a choice of instant or ground
coffee + tea of all sorts

We could go a bit up market Scramble eggs & smoked salmon, yogurt, croissants cheese & Hams etc. When we have canvased the opinion of guests, 95% prefer our value rates when we explore the additional costs and wastage. (There would of course have to be a price uplift! ) We will cater for most tastes if we are advised at the time of booking, Black pudding is often available. & we have thought about adding Hash browns but most when asked seem to be satisfied with what is on offer. We would welcome any thoughts you may have, as our aim is to keep our guests coming back, So your comment has hit on a point that we keep under review, any positive ideas that help us to improve our service and enable us to keep our prices down can only be for the good. Please please let us know via the website www.highlandsbandb.co.uk Many Thanks ..Alan

We wanted a quiet weekend break with kids and chose Highlands having stayed there before as newly weds many years ago (without children) .. Alan and Lynn are perfect hosts and made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived , very impressed with the lovely rural location , the cleanliness and very well decorated and homely feel of highlands , our stay was in the Balcony room which has a lovely ensuite a super kingsize bed and all the facilities we could wish for , the annexe with two single beds was perfect for the kids, breathtaking views of the shropshire country side was the icing on the cake , our children aged 3 and 4 cant wait to go back to Alan and Lynns house ..

We stayed in a twin bedded room with the garden as our terrace and excellent views of the Long Mynd and the Carding valley. Our room was spacious with all amenities to hand. A warm welcome, a helping hand with the luggage and plenty of friendly chat and humour from the hosts. An abundance of help with anything you have problems with from local walks to eateries. A very reasonable price for an excellent stay of 2 nights. Clean and warm with an excellent breakfast.

An excellent b & b with lovely hosts. The house and room were beautiful, well kept and equipped. Lynn and Alan as hosts, were attentive and helpful, nothing was too much trouble, they even booked us a table at a local pub for our evening meal. Breakfast was excellent, and we would thoroughly recommend a stay here.
