This is the 4th time we've been to this charming B&B and it never disappoints. In fact, it gets better every time we go. The bedrooms are all 4 poster and I've slept in each of them! Although the bed is a little on the narrow side (I'm used to a kingsize), the setting is so beautiful that you soon forget about it. There is an inviting array of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, the most delicious biscuits and even sweeties! A small fridge is always well stocked with 2 bottles of water and cartons or Ribena for the teetotalers! If you want to take a bottle of wine back to your room, there is a corkscrew and 2 glasses waiting for you. The bathroom is always well stocked with delightful smellies, lots of fluffy towels and a dressing gown. Even emergency cotton buds, cotton wool and gorgeous hand wash! And then there's breakfast.... Not your average breakfast: the eggs are from the farm's hens, the bacon and sausages are from the owner's pigs (I have seen them!) and if you want to buy some rare breed beef, the farm shop in the village stocks it - i thoroughly recommend it! The owners Chris and Margaret do everything to make you feel really welcome. In the winter, there is a cosy living room with a roaring fire. And now, there is a tearoom at the farm with home made cakes. (I know because I shook hands with Chris' daughter who was mid-baking!). The garden is delightful, with a crocket lawn and views to die for, when you get to the top of the garden. In all, the best B&B in Staffordshire. And if you're going to Alton Towers, it's only 10 minutes down the road.
