‘A very welcoming couple’, Tracey Baylis and Alex Read, greet guests with tea or coffee at their ‘delightful’ rural B&B in this ‘lovingly extended’ stone cottage in the Clee hills. The open-plan lounge/dining room has books, games and a wood-burning stove; glass doors lead to the terrace. Under old oak beams and in the more modern extension, country-style bedrooms are simply furnished; each has a tea tray with hot chocolate, infusions and shortbread biscuits. They vary in size and decor: Clay has French doors opening on to a balcony; Oak and Slate have a sofa bed to accommodate a family; Dhustone has a large double-ended bath in the bathroom. Tracey Baylis’s ‘delicious’ communal dinners, served by arrangement, ‘would have done credit to a posh restaurant’: her traditional dishes use local, home-grown and organic ingredients where possible, perhaps loin of pork, creamy wholegrain mustard and cider sauce. Breakfast has home-made preserves and bread, eggs from the house’s hens, and ‘a large choice’ of cooked dishes. Tracey Baylis, a reflexologist, can provide treatments in a garden studio. (JM)
  • A total joy to return-which we have just done for the 4th time. How Tracey and Alex can keep it up we just don't know and their attention to detail is outstanding (they sensed that we preferred cups & saucers to mugs and-guess what?)

  • We needed to be near Wolverhampton. The owners are welcoming and helpful about local attractions. Tea/coffee offered on arrival. Very comfortable bedroom. Delicious dinners (would have done credit to a smart restaurant) and breakfasts, elegantly served. Communal eating.

  • My wife and I have just returned from our 3rd stay and this in itself is an indication that we hold the establishment in such high regard. It goes from strength to strength. Tracey and Alex could not have been kinder, warmer or better hosts.
