“Just a bit more focus required to be superb...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

I stayed at Wormleighton Hall in April 2012. I received a charming and easy welcome from Nicola, who treated me as a friend, made me a cup of tea, let me read her newspaper and sample her homemade flapjacks. She allowed me a choice of room, so I opted for Room 1 with its panoramic views of the countryside. I really like this location and the whole farmhouse/B&B concept, but the business needs to address a few flaws that would otherwise make it superb:

Room 1 was a bit tired, as I suspect other rooms in the house to be. The woodwork/sash windows and radiator need some repair/painting and the decoration/soft furnishings need renewal. There was no hot water readily available, since the newly repaired boiler had "tripped" and when I asked for an ironing board to press a suit, I was presented with an iron that needed de-scaling and a board whose cover had been subjected to numerous burns and dirt. It was disgusting. The room provided tea/coffee, but there were no spoons and the kettle should have been emptied.

The real issue that needs to be addressed is whether Sam and Nicola are focused on this business or their farm? Breakfast was very nice, with homemade jam and farm fresh eggs served by the breakfast lady who no doubt acts as a general factotum.

The whole experience was charming, but just needs that extra attention to detail to place Wormleighton Hall at the top end of B&B's.

Our second visit to Wormleighton Hall. Located on the edge of a tiny medieval village, within easy driving distance of Stratford, Warwick and the Cotswolds. Beautifully furnished accomodation, and great views over the peaceful Warwickshire countryside. Nicola knows all the best restaurants in the area, and produces delicious breakfasts.

We booked a two night stay at Wormleighton Hall so we could have a 'pre christmas' christmas with our daughter, who lives and works in the village near the Hall. Sadly the snowy weather put paid to most of our plans for the two days, but staying at the hall more than made up for the bad weather. On arrival we were met by Nicola's mum in law who made sure we had the warmest of welcomes with a cup of tea and some home made flap jack( forget the diet i thought, it was too good to miss!!). We were shown to our room in the courtyard which was clean, warm with a very comfortable bed, and lots of space for storing clothes etc. The bathroom was clean and modern with a very powerful shower, heated towel rail and ample supplies of shower gel, shampoo etc. We had booked to bring our two dogs with us and they were kennelled in a huge stable which was full of straw, so they were very warm and cosy as well.

The Hall is set in farmland and the views of the surrounding countryside are stunning and we sat on the saturday morning watching the snow coming in from the west.. Given the time of year and the weather we decided to pass on the outdoor swimming pool, but would imagine in summer it would be lovely to have a nice cooling dip.

Nicola cooked us the most wonderful breakfast complete with free range eggs from their own chickens and sausages that even my husband. a confirmed sausage hater ate and declared were..divine... praise indeed.

Nicola could not have been more welcoming, and we really enjoyed our two day stay and will certainly be back in future for some more of the same... minus the snow!!!

Thank you again, see you soon.

Havent actually had the chance to stay here. We tried to book sunday night - found the price on the internet on both their website and laterooms.com. My sister called the hotel sunday night to make the booking and confirm the price and was told to call back the next day as the proprieter was busy at the time.

When my sister called back today she was told that it will now be £40 more expensive than the price that the lady had confirmed the previous night as clearly she had now realised it was grand prix weekend that we wanted to book for and said that she hadnt got around to updating her website and laterooms.com as well as misquoting by phone on sunday night. My sister was extremely disappointed as she had spent hours looking for hotels and this was perfect. The attitude from the proprieter Nicola Burton was that this was now the price so thats that. Perhaps the B&B is lovely but the attitude and proffesionalism alone has put usoff and we would definately tell people about this.

Stayed January 2010

We booked a double room here for the Grand Prix. Our plan was to also visit the Cotswolds villages for a day. This accommodation provides an easy, pretty route through to the cotswold villages, and likewise an easy and accessable route to Silverstone.
We were given a very warm welcome and shown to our room in the converted stables which was fantastic. Our room looked out over the outdoor pool with sheep in the fields behind and horses in the fields and stables next to us. The Cockrel gives a genuine "farm life" wake up call which was lovely to hear. Our only disappointment was the Kingsize Double Bed turned out to be two single beds pushed together, but far from a disaster.
The shower room had a lovely feature of a loft window making it very light and airy.
If you would like a recommendation of local restaurant for the evening then we would thoroughly recommend The Inn at Farnborough (which is 3 miles away).
The room had really nice touches of shampoo,conditoner, hairdryer, tea/coffee & biscuits, torch, alarm clock & French doors outside to secluded courtyard.

Eight of us (2 families) stayed here in April '07 and had a fantastic time. The B&B is set in a beautiful stone house overlooking 1,300 acres of rolling farm in the country west of London. Some rooms are in the main house, and others in a renovated stable. All of our rooms were spacious, elegant and very comfortable.

The setting is magnificent. The back of the house looks out onto a meadow that houses sheep and horses, with cultivated fields stretching off into the distance.

The owners were friendly and accomodating, and prepared a delicious English breakfast each morning. Our children had the run of the property, and had a great time chasing sheep and helping groom the horses.

The location is also very convenient, as Wormleighton is close to Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick (location of Warwick Castle). It is also an easy drive to many of the charming towns of the Cotswolds

We are looking forward to returning to Wormleighton in the future.
