“A real 'home from home'”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

a warm welcome from Jane who was gardening when we arrived.What a beautiful place to stay.We were here for a friend's 70th birthday meal at the Malt Shovel just down the road.Talking to some of the other guests,they were mostly staying in Travel Lodges or Premier Inns and quite a few of them were disappointed,especially when we told them about the Gatehouse.It's one of the nicest places we have stayed in,nothing was too much trouble and everything was spotless.Jane is obviously very proud of her garden and invited us to walk round it and sit outside if we wished.The breakfast was excellent too,would definitely stay her again if we were down this way.Loved the roses in our room!

If impersonal minimalism is your thing, this isn't for you. But if you want a warm welcome, a thoughtful and friendly host, comfort, peace and quiet, and a spacious, spotless and comfortable room in beautiful surroundings, followed by an excellent breakfast, then look no further. This is a really lovely place to stay - cannot fault it.

Found Jane and John very friendly and made to feel most welcome. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. I arrived on a beautiful summers evening and it was so nice to look out on the gardens and grounds which are kept very tidy and are absolutely beautiful. I visited the Malt Shovel for my evening meal and found the service and food of a very high standard. My breakfast at the Gatehouse was fabulous. I will definitely be revisiting the Gatehouse when I am up this way again.

We have stayed at The Gatehouse on a number of occasions now and never tire of the experience . Jane and John are wonderful hosts and their lovely home a joy to share even if only for a short time . The rooms are large and very comfortable and the grounds exquisite while the welcome received on each visit makes you feel like one of the family . Heartily recommended for any trip to the West Midlands and we will undoubtedly return time and time again .

Stayed here for one night and could not fault it. Lovely property and grounds, on a summers day the garden would be lovely to relax in. Large bedroom and spotless too, lovely breakfast and great hosts.
Also within walking distance to two great (and very different) pubs - The Malt Shovel for a nice meal if a little 'stuff' and a true local pub in the other direction.
I enjoyed the peace and quiet of the place, home from home.

One of the best B&B experience. It felt like staying with family. Jane and John are very welcoming and took great care of us. Rooms are very spacious and spotless and it had everything we needed. They also provided a wonderful baby cot for my baby and the best part is during breakfast Jane gave a nice,comfy baby chair for my baby so that we can enjoy our breakfast.
We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend this B&B to everyone. Can't find a single flaw with this B&B.

A really warm welcome to what can only be described as a stunning house. Set in beautifully kept grounds in a quiet village. Nice rooms equipped with all you could need. Jane cannot be helpful enough and is knowlegable about the surrounding area and more than willing to help with any question you may have. I would not hesitate to recommend the Gatehouse and will certainly return if we are in the area again.
