Good Hotel Guide Review

‘It was a total joy to return,’ write readers this year on their fourth visit to Tracey Baylis and Alex Read’s B&B in a rural hamlet. ‘Their attention to detail is outstanding. They sensed that we preferred cups and saucers to mugs, and guess what…?’ The extended stone cottage has an open-plan lounge/dining room with a wood-burning stove; glass doors open on to the terrace. Guests relax in bedrooms equipped with a king-size bed, and a well-stocked tea tray with coffee, teas, infusions and shortbread. Each room is different: the Oak room, in the heart of the house, has a sofa bed to accommodate a family; Clay has a balcony with views of garden and countryside. Tracey Baylis, who has worked for Michelin-starred chef Shaun Hill, cooks ‘delicious’ dinners for appreciative visitors. Using local, home-grown and organic ingredients, her traditional dishes might include baked mushrooms, Shropshire blue cheese; duck breast, red wine, blackcurrant. In the morning, a generous breakfast is served, with home-made bread and preserves; ‘a large choice’ of cooked dishes. The gastronomic mecca of Ludlow is five and a half miles away. (David Bartley)

Guest comments

'A total joy to return-which we have just done for the fourth 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 and saucers to mugs and-guess what?) ' - David Bartley - June, 2015
'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. ' - J M - October, 2012
'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. ' - David Bartley - August, 2012
