Kilsby Country House
Reviewed March 25, 2014

We booked at short notice and were very pleased that Sue had a vacancy for the B&B. We are keen walkers, natural history buffs and geocachers. The area had lots to offer for all of these activities. Kilsby offered a very cosy base to return to after a day in the hills. The atmosphere was welcoming and relaxed; we really felt at home.
Breakfasts were excellent and set us up for the day outdoors.
We will certainly be back for a repeat visit and may consider a longer stay in the cottage.
Thanks Sue for a most enjoyable stay.

Booked a room at Kilsby at about 20 mins notice for a colleague and myself when work plans put us in he village at a couple hours notice...
A few others weren't geared up for last minute arrivals but in the end we were glad...
Sue welcomed us to the property as soon as we arrived with a smile and introduction showed us our comfortable room and adjacent bathroom.
Use of a guest lounge was a huge bonus as well instead of being stuck in one room..
Breakfast..... wow!
Everything you'd want for breakfast was there and as two contractors we obviously went for the works.....didn't need to eat again until our evening meal in the local pub (Stonecroft.... really nice, friendly place).
Walking out in the morning we both just stopped and stared at the view of the valley (we arrived in the dark)..... cameras straight out and pictures/ video taken even on a damp January morning with the cloud coming over the hills ...... THAT VIEW WAS WALES!!! simply stunning

Found several other places in the village emailing vacancies trying to poach our custom for latter part of the week...
No chance... and we're going back this week again for another welcoming warm stay! 10/10

Room Tip: Seriously!!!..... you see that view outside you'll realise its where you want to be!! not sat in...

Over the years we exhibited at the Royal Welsh Show, we've used Kilsby House as our base. We rented the cottage beside Kilsby on a self catering basis from the owners Chris and Sue.

The location is fabulous for an out-of-the-way holiday with fantastic views, an incredible variety of bird life, and access to fresh-water fishing (Chris is a very keen fisherman and will keep you right).

Alas, our business has given up exhibiting at the Royal Welsh, so 2013 was our last visit to Kilsby. However as a reward for all the years it rained, this year the sun shone and made those views all the more spectacular. We won't forget sitting on the terrace drinking wine with our fabulous hosts.

We stayed for two nights last week and really enjoyed our stay. We were upgraded on arrival to the cottage which was nice although a bit of a trek to the bathroom at night. The cottage facilities are excellent with everything provided for a comfortable stay, Sue introduced herself and gave a good insight into the local area, she recommended a couple of pubs that are in the village and we tried one on the first night, the food was good but the pub decor needs bringing out of the 1950s. The area around Kilsby house is very rural and would suit anyone interested in country pursuits. We stayed there as it was fairly central to the locations we wished to visit but would suit just about any location. Overall we would like to stay again sometime in the future and would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for quality and character .

Our first trip abroad and first B & B adventure. Sue and Chris made us feel at home right away. They should write the book on operating a B B. They set the bar way up for the rest of our trip through the UK. The food was really good and the lunches where great. A very scenic and quiet location. We will always remember our great adventure to Wales

We have just returned again to Kilsby and our stay was perfect again. The Weather was excellent for September but it wouldn't matter what it is like the area is great whatever so many different things to do in the area from fishing to cycling. We go for the walking and the scenery. The welcome is always brilliant we feel like we have come home . The breakfasts were once again top class and set you up for the day you don't really need another big meal unless you really want one (the pubs in the village a short walk away can sort you out with an evening meal). We booked for next year while there so Sue we will be back. lol

Our twelfth visit to this truly beautiful gem. Sue and Chris however don’t rest on their laurels and with each visit we see creative changes in the house, cottage and delightful garden – all designed to give their guests the best possible stay. This time a sycamore had been taken down allowing for uninterrupted views of the valley and little paths opened up for bird and butterfly viewing. The complimentary bara brith is as delicious as ever and Sue is now honing her Welsh cake skills. I just hope she’ll start to sell her bread because it is absolutely delicious! For fisherman, Chris is well qualified to recommend and advise and he shares his knowledge generously. For walkers, maps and guides are on hand. Attention to detail in the accommodation is second to none and as the visitors book attests everyone has the most magical stay at Kilsby. We discovered Kilsby in 2007: we have visited every year since, sometimes twice and once even three times! Here’s to the next one!

Room Tip: All quiet. The adjoining cottage is peaceful and very well appointed and for those who don't wa...
