“A truly outstanding B & B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

This is by far the most outstanding B&B we have ever stayed in. Chris and Margaret are fantastic hosts, and the farmhouse is gorgeous. Oozing with atmosphere, this is a loved house, which Chris and Margaret obviously love to share with their guests. Sitting in the lounge next to the roaring fire, surrounded by amazing antiques, you feel as if you are being transported back to an earlier time. Chris has an obvious passion for his antiques and loves to talk about them. I loved chatting with him. He even brought me a book when I mentioned that I was interested in the Civil War in Uttoxeter, and that's only one example of how he goes above and beyond to ensure his guests have a perfect stay. Our room was wonderful (it even had its own little fridge with fresh milk) and so was the dining room. The atmosphere in there was really conducive to chatting with the other guests, and the breakfast was excellent. Guests are also free to roam the wonderful gardens, which even in October were fascinating, with all the little nooks and crannies and eclectic mix of planted containers. We just wish we'd been staying longer. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to the UK. Thank you Chris and Margaret for an amazing experience! Keith and Carolyn

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review.I cannot emphasize how much reviews like this mean to Margaret and I.
It is certainly true that we love this house and have put an awful lot of effort into it over the years but when our guests are genuinely pleased and interested it certainly makes it all very worthwhile.
Thank you so much.
Regards Chris and Margaret

What an incredible place! In the middle of beautiful rolling English countryside, cosy, comfortable and surrounded by old antiques.
Thank you to Chris and Margaret who were so welcoming. We were terrible sad we couldn't stay another night, but hope to visit in the future.
One of the most amazing finds yet!

Hi You two.
Great to have you two and Mum staying with us again. Did we agree that it was19 years that you have been staying with us.A very big thank you .Repeat booking are by far the best. Thank you also for taking the time to give us an excellent review.It would also be interesting to see during those years how often my team Derby County have finished higher than yours West Ham.I do however have a good feeling about 2016 !!!.
Best wishes Chris and Margaret

This is 100% hands down a brilliant B+B that is truly warm in every way and full of charm!

This is the 3rd time i've been to Manor House Farm. Always a fab warm welcome by Chris and Margaret the owners. They have thought of everything. Nothing is too much trouble. Manor House Farm has the most amazing gardens that i have ever seen, it just keeps on going. They even have a tennis court and a croquet pitch!!! Its just so relaxing. It has an amazing feeling to it. Amazing breckie :D. Fab Cooks!!

This last time we stayed, me and my mate got stranded at Alton Towers in the pouring rain and cold as the taxi we ordered still hadnt arrived after an hour and half, phoned the B+B to see if we could get another taxi number as were are not from the area and fair dues Chris, the owner came to pick us up!! He came out of his way to help me and my mate. Not many B+Bs do that for their guests. Totally grateful and appreciative. Truly amazing in every way.

This B+B is defo worth the visit! Amazing!!!

Dear Gem
Thank you so much for you superb review.As you know it is always great to have you and your friends staying with us.Seeing the drowned state you were in when i picked you up from Alton Towers i feel you should have rung us earlier.Certainly it was not the night for a late game of either tennis or croquet !!.
We are so pleased you love the garden which we also love,but it would help if Margaret and I had somewhat more idea of gardening,but it is a great way to relax
We look forward to seeing you when you visit theTowers next year and lets hope it is a much better day.
Best wishes Chris.

Once we had managed to find the place (which is a bit of a challenge for the sat-nav!) we found a wonderful, quaint old house filled with antiques and character.
The room was charming, with a four-poster bed...and a four poster bath in the en-suite!!
Friendly staff, who made sure we had a lovely log fire in the lounge and an excellent breakfast, made the stay complete. We will be booking again soon.

Thank you so much for yet another 5 star review,and very pleased you managed to out wit the Sat Nav.To be fair most times the Sat Nav works very well but for some reason the odd one will try to bring you in along a lane that is only fit for off roading. So.if you are asked by the Sat Nav to turn of the main road into a tiny lane at the top of the hill with no sign post Don`t as that lane gets quite tricky.The best routes to us are to be found on our website.
Thanks again for choosing to stay with us and very pleased you enjoyed the Log Fire which is a must at this time of year.
Best wishes Chris and Margaret

Booked their last room at very late notice and after a 3 hour drive in rainy, rush hour traffic were greeted by a gorgeous little farmhouse with a roaring log fire and lovely hosts.

Lovely little bedroom with everything you need for a nights stay. The owners managed to book us a table at the tavern pub (We walked there and back which took about 20 mins - chris gave us a torch) Lovely food and good beer.

Slept well and filled up on lots of yummy breakfast before leaving at 0920 for alton towers.

Would stay again if visiting alton towers in the future.

(As I booked at such late notice I didnt even think twice about the owners having animals....I know, I know.....dogs...on a farm...really you don't say?!!!! But... just to say I am allergic to dogs and did start to suffer but once I'd had an allergy tablet was fine. Just to let people in a similar position know that there are animals about!!)

Dear West Country Lass.
Thank you very much for taking time to review our property.
I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your very complimentary comments but we are obviously sorry you suffered from your dog allergy.
I know this can be a problem and we have tried to let everyone know we have dogs by putting several photos on the website.So hopefully it did not spoil your day at the Towers.
Thanks again and thank you for mentioning the dogs so as to worn fellow sufferers
Yours Chris and Margaret.
