Unfortunately, due to a stomach bug I caught in Scotland, we had to cancel our first night. We did managed to make it for the second night. Nina, the proprietor of the inn, only charged us...

Booked to stay here for the night before going to Alton Towers. There aren't many places that cater for a family of 5 and this was one of the few that do. On arrival I was impressed with the location set in lovely countryside. The room was massive; plenty of room for the five of us. The en suite was...

Stayed here for 2 nights recently as spending weekend at Alton Towers. Very clean and welcoming. Had the best nights sleep in the comfy beds, kids loved it and the setting is beautiful. Hosts very friendly, felt like a home from home.

We were looking for a place to stay for just one night on our way from Manchester back to London and found Shawgate Farm Guest House in Staffordshire. Very friendly hosts, and a great countryside location. Had excellent dinner at the local pub (Fox & Goose, a short 5 minutes' walk away). The guest house is in a very quiet...

The house is large, set in a lovely mix of gardens and farmed fields, with ample car parking space. Nina, our hostess, was very friendly, cheerful, and extremely helpful, offering several...

Comfortable and spacious accommodation in separate wing to the owners' home. Owner was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room had a wonderful view over the open countryside. Breakfast (I try and book room only where possible) was fairly routine. Usual fry-up was perfectly OK. Coffee was particularly good. Toast was ordinary sliced. Cereals were corn flakes, Coco Pops, fairly ordinary...

I have read with interest all the reviews about Shawgate, and they are spot-on - this place really is a little GEM !! It's a lovely rural setting, and the sat-nav was a God-send, as I've never driven through so many country lanes. We stayed here with 2 boys (aged 12) on a trip to Alton Towers. When we arrived,...
