“good things come in little parcels”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This B&B is small but perfectly formed. The purpose built building has everything a couple could wish for when staying in this beautifu part of the country. Imogen is a marvellous host for whom nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast, delivered in a basket at a time of our choice, was superb, everything beautifully presented, home-made and very tasty. It was a privilege to meet Imogen and her family, and I would unreservedly recommend this beautifully styled accommodation.

“"Perfect from start to end"”
Reviewed July 19, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

A little slice of heaven in the Staffordshire countryside! The Dorm is tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, and has everything you need to escape the rigours of everyday life. Imogen was the perfect host with the most delicious breakfasts!! Lots of lovely surprises await you. Homemade cake and shortbread to name but two. We will definitely return.

“Amazing Attention to Detail”
Reviewed June 4, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My wife and I chose to spend the night here whilst visiting the Emma Bridgewater factory in Stoke. Whilst the accommodation is small - about the size of a large double garage - the quality of the fit and finish is superb. We felt very comfortable and as it was separate to the main house there was a greater sense of privacy than a regular B & B.
Lots of lovely quirky finishing touches also made the stay feel special. Plenty of Bridgewater crockery pleased my wife as she is a massive fan.
Imogen was a perfect hostess and was attentive without being intrusive. The breakfast was truly wonderful and rivalled anything I have had at top end hotels: cereal, toast with wonderful home made jams, beautifully presented fresh fruit and yoghurt followed by an excellent cooked breakfast with quality local ingredients.
Highly Recommended

As the first guest to stay at the beautiful new Dorm B&B we were blown away by all the little touches and the attention to detail. The lovely vintage and shabby chic decor is beautifully in keeping with the rural village setting. Imogen, Steve and Sebastian were very attentive hosts providing a great balance of privacy and attentiveness Some extra special touches included homemade shortbread, homemade lemon drizzle cake and an incredible breakfast and a cupboard full of walking maps, books, games and puzzles. It really is a little piece of heaven and we headed home thoroughly relaxed.

“The most beautiful, luxurious B&B we have ever stayed in”

One of the loveiest places that we have ever stayed in!
If you are travelling to Staffordshire, you have GOT to stay here, the most beautiful B&B, in the most beautiful surroundings.
Woke up after the best nights sleep ever, in the most luxurious bed. Had a lovely powerful shower with such amazing smelling toiletries, soft fluffy towels, bath robes & slippers, we sat outside sipping hot tea in the sunshine enjoying the beautiful country garden setting.
We were then served the most scrumptious breakfast on Emma Bridgewater pottery, gorgeous locally sourced food, homemade jams, perfect, just perfect!
I cannot recomend this place highly enough!!!

“Charming with the Personal Touch”
Reviewed May 26, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The Dorm is a charming Bed and Breakfast with a personal touch. The bedroom is in a self contained annex with a fully featured kitchenette, ensuite wet room, modern TV, underfloor heating, Wi-Fi and fantastic views out on to a traditional countryside cottage garden. Oh and there is plenty of parking space right next to the room.

The self contained nature of the room, across the courtyard from the main house, affords privacy without feeling remote - perfect. The hosts were quick to answer any questions and happy to help when asked.

The room was clean and tidy and fantastically fresh with no signs of wear and tear.

In the evening the hosts asked what we would like for breakfast from a wide selection of options - and breakfast did not disappoint!

For me breakfast was awesome local sausage, bacon and eggs served with fresh squeezed orange juice and hot coffee - just what it's supposed to be!

The hosts are friendly, energetic and welcoming!

A fantastic stay in the countryside - recommended 5*.

Perfection. Imogen made us feel like spoilt family. The style and attention to detail, from the homemade shortbread, jams and cake, the flowers and prosecco, the locally sourced breakfast, all was immaculately done. The decor is unique, a beautiful twist on vintage chic.
We particularly enjoyed finding all the little touches. I won't spoil it but do explore every cupboard. Do make time to sit on the patio in the bathrobes and try some of the teas that are supplied. Thank you Imogen,a little moment out of time.
