I have wanted to visit Hannah & Paddies B&B for a long time, finally the chance arose. It is unusual to find an authentic experience like Roundwood House - a family home with a warm inviting atmosphere while it stays true to its age. The hosts are welcoming and present, but never intrusive... you'll feel right at home - especially when Hannah's breakfast or Paddy's dinner is on the table! A gem that needs to be experienced in order to understand. Thanks again Guys, can't wait to visit again!

We recently had a family meal at Roundwood house. The house itself and the grounds are beautiful. The meal was extremely tasty and the hosts are so accommodating and friendly. All of our party thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Looking forward to visiting again.

We stayed in the writers cottage. It was bijoux but perfect. Loved that we could bring our dog who had a great time playing with the gorgeous little girls and there dogs. We had breakfast which was delicious and enjoyed the grounds. I felt I was in a Beatrix potter book.

This was my second trip to Roundwood house. Just as special as I remembered. From the minute we arrived ( a party of 6 adults and 4 children) we felt at home. Lovely welcoming fire in the beautiful drawing room to warm a chilly August day. The evening meal was a feast of flavours further enhanced by warm friendly service. Will definitely return!

Had been meaning to stay in this country house for a number of years as it is near my home town of Mountrath. What a wonderful relaxing place, great hosts and great food and warm welcome. I was there with my wife and I intend to return with a number of additional guests. This house is a unique midlands experience and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Tom and Alison Dowling
