mike and elaine looked after us and made us very welcome and our en-suite accomodation was excellent.

it would be hard to find a b&b so peacfully situated in the countryside within easy walk to local pub/restaurant and a few minutes to basingstoke by car.
if you enjoy a full english breakfast this is the b&b to stay at.

If you like a good quality, well-cooked English breakfast stay here.

However, don't stay here if you are likely to hate the following aspects of this guest house:

- Furniture and fittings that are the cheapest possible.
- A kitchen and stair area which constantly smells strongly of damp dog.
- Guest rooms without locks of any sort (I have never experienced such an absurd thing in any other guest house or hotel, in the UK or abroad). I wonder if this is something to do with a lower rate of tax payable if you don't have locks on guest's rooms? It is very inconsiderate if you have booked and arrive with laptop etc., only to find no locks, and no other guest houses available that night.
- Beds which smell damp. Imagine if you wash some clothes and then fail to dry them quickly enough. Well, this is the smell I encountered at this guest house. Imagine then having to sleep in that bed. Awful.

All in all, I couldn't wait to leave.

How hard can it be to run a guest house that is normal?

The East Side Coach House, owned by Elaine and Mike Cashmore, is a delightful B&B (6 rooms) located in a quiet country lane just a few miles from the M3 (junction 6). Basingstoke is the nearest town about 10 minutes away.

We were warmly welcomed into their traditionally decorated home and shown to a pleasant double room with adjacent large bathroom. Plenty of towels, toiletries and a clear explanation for how to work the shower. The room was comfortable, with small tv, tea and coffee making facilities and plenty of hanging space on an open rail. If we had wanted to do any ironing or washing, the Cashmore's were happy to provide their own family facilities.
The room could benefit from a little updating - apparently this is planned - and perhaps a slightly harder mattress would be a good investment.

A tasty English Breakfast was served up with very generous portions and excellently cooked by Mike. This peaceful country home surrounded in an acre of land is a great find if you're looking for a home-from-home stopover enroute to the coast or on business in Basingstoke. Prices are very competitive too.
