Good Hotel Guide Review

Deep in Shropshire countryside, Tracey Baylis and Alex Read’s B&B, in a quiet hamlet, is ‘a total joy’, say admirers. Natural materials come to the fore in the extended stone cottage, with bedrooms named Oak, Slate, Clay and Dhustone. Each is different, though all provide shortbread, hot chocolate and herbal infusions on the coffee/tea tray, and organic toiletries in the bathroom. Garden-view Oak, in the older part of the house, has handsome oak beams, plus a sofa bed to accommodate young guests; Clay has a double-ended slipper bath under the bedroom’s sloping ceiling, and French doors that open to a balcony with views of the surrounding fields. On cool days, gather round the wood-burning stove in the open-plan lounge/dining room (the hosts are ready with tea and biscuits); when the weather turns warm, there’s a lawn to play on, and an outdoor eating area. A fuss-free dinner (perhaps lentil and aubergine moussaka; duck breast, red wine, blackcurrants) may be provided by request. Breakfast – a source of pride – is a generous affair: choose among buttered kippers, local sausages, omelettes, organic porridge and more.

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
