My wife and I stayed here over the weekend and couldn't be more pleased. On pulling onto the gravel driveway, you are greeted with an abundance of greenery from the hedge rows, trees, flowers and home grown veg! From the front, the building itself doesn't look too big, but how wrong could I be! Upon ringing the doorbell, we were greeted by Mark who is a genuinely friendly chap who couldn't do enough for you. You only have to see the luxurious, spacious hallway to get a treat of what's to come with the rest of the accommodation, with it's grand appearance that's so inviting. the lounge, although we didn't really spend much time in, could easily be on Escape To The Country, with it's selection of beautiful furniture and country feel with immaculate attention to detail. No expense spared in any way. Now to the bedroom itself. Spacious enough for what you need with all the usual facilities with tea, kettle etc. but the difference here? Unlike every other hotel/B&B we have stayed in, we were supplied with fresh milk which was refilled daily. The decor was beautiful, the bed easily the most comfortable I've slept in, the furniture, as with the rest of the house, was of the highest quality. No cheap shoddy cabinets etc. here. The en suite bathroom, although not huge has everything you need, a sink, toilet and great shower, and like everything else here, it's all of high quality with an excellent finish. You are given a great choice for breakfast, all served to you in a spacious, attractive dining room, again no expense spared with the furniture, decoration etc. Donna and Mark rustle up a fantastic breakfast which you cannot fault in any way (my wife did struggle, but that was due to the amount of shandys she had consumed the previous night!) which was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented, again the best I've had, and I've eaten a fair few in my time! There is a large garden wrapping itself around the property which is overlooked, I guess, by all the rooms available. Garden looked beautiful, although due to the typical English weather, we didn't get to have a good look around with the rain. Although taxis are a bit difficult to get in this area, Donna kindly gave us a lift into the village which was only a few minutes drive away, again giving that little bit extra you don't normally get elsewhere. There are some cracking pubs/restaurants in the area, and the town of Bidford itself is lovely with Stratford only a 20 minute drive away. All in all, I can't recommend this place enough. Warm welcome, luxurious accommodation run by a friendly, welcoming couple. Thank you! Dave and Rach
