Brookhouse Bed & Breakfast


Once an old coaching inn known as 'The Four Crosses' Brook House is situated in a peaceful woodland setting on the banks of the River Sow in the Offley Brook conservation area. The Four hundred year old home is full of character with old oak from the original timber frame evident throughout the house. Brook House has been modernised to provide every comfort. In your room you will find a high quality bed and mattress and sheets of the finest Egyptian cotton to provide a real sense of luxury. In one room the bed may be arranged either as a super king-size or two singles according to your needs. The beautiful new en-suite shower room has been appointed to a high standard. A TV/DVD player and tea / coffee making facilities are provided for your convenience. Another room has a king size bed and enjoys use of the large and luxuriously renovated bathroom just a step across the landing. For family groups or friends a fourth room is available to share the main bathroom. This beautiful original oak timbered room with double bed looks out over the garden, pond and woodland. When booked with either of the other rooms it is available at a discounted rate. You are most welcome to relax in our orangery over-looking the garden or in our comfortable guests lounge. Our collection of books, DVD's and video's are at your disposal. Wifi is available for our guests use throughout Brook House.

The Garden & Local Area If a breath of fresh air is needed you are most welcome to wander around our peaceful garden and visit the pond fed by the river sow. The garden is still work in progress. If you wish to walk a little further along the River Sow, public footpaths lead to Jacksons Marsh with it's board walks maintained by the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust. If you are lucky you may spot kingfishers or otters. Continuing the walk for a couple of miles leads to the beautiful lake of Copmere and the nearest pub, The Star, a traditional inn serving excellent food and drink. Returning you can visit Jacksons coppice a real treasure on a hillside just a couple of hundred metres from Brook House. In late spring the bluebells are breathtaking. It is also the site of one of the largest badger colonies in Staffordshire.

The hosts are warm, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was scrumptious with some locally grown produce. Location very pleasant with interesting geology. Beware of country roads and mad local drivers! Mind you, this is the case wherever you stay ........
