“A Little Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

This is a lovely Bed & Breakfast. The accommodation and attention to detail in the rooms is fabulous. Lots of fluffy towels, a tea tray with a good selection of teas, coffees and chocolate biscuits. I even had two hair dryers in my twin room.

Even though my room was up at the top of the house the room was still spacious and the bathroom was large with a fullsize bath and a selection of bubble baths to choose from.

The dining room is beautiful and airy. I chose to have my breakfast at the same time as the other guests so we all ate at the large dining table together.

I really can't find a fault with this lovely little b&b and will certainly be staying there again. They say they want you to treat it as your home and that's exactly how it feels like you're part of the family.

Room Tip: You will have to climb the stairs - don't think there was a groundfloor room. Higher room at a l...

Gosh, what a house. Chose it because it looked interesting and it certainly was. We were the only ones staying and arrived to a silent house as the owners were out, just heard the ticking of the grandfather clock. (It felt a bit like Denis Sever's House for those who know!) Had a room in attic. What appeared to be a lovely Georgian house must have originally been a medieval gabled property. Oozed atmosphere. Very clean, lovely breakfast.

We travelled through England, in April and May, 2013 and stayed with Mike and Sally for two nights, on our way back to Heathrow.

Absolutely first-class in all aspects. Mike and Sally are welcoming, easy-going and so very helpful.

The house is immaculate in all areas. Tastefully decorated and comfortable beyond the point of making one feel at home.

Guests have unrestricted access to the breakfast/dining/lounge room, throughout their stay. Mike and Sally even provide a library of books, CDs and DVDs for use of guests.

The bedrooms are delightful. The beds are especially comfortable and Mike's breakfasts really are the perfect way to start any day.

We'd had a less than ideal B&B experience prior to The Clockmaker's House, so it was a real treat for us to find this one

Perfect in every way, with wonderful hosts, who make you feel at home.

Thank you Mike and Sally. You go the extra mile and then some :o)

I stayed there twice and they area amazing. The blue room is full of character. Everything nice and tidy. The breakfast is amazing. I was impressed with fresh fruit presented so beautifully. Looking forward to stay there again.

I was giving a talk at the Royal Hotel in Ashby de la Zouch, when I saw the reviews on Trip Advisor there was no way I was going to stay there, so the alternatives were a Premier Inn or the Clockmaker's House. Looking at the reviews I plumped for the Clockmaker's. I was in the Yellow Room at the top of the house, I was by myself, so it was fine for one night. The room and ensuite were spotless, and the tea making facilities included Pukka teas and nice choccie biscuits (Kitkats and Penguins - much nicer than stale shortbreads!). I must say I had the best night's sleep ever! Breakfast was great, I declined the cooked breakfast, as I wanted a healthier option but there was a selection fresh fruit, cereals, homemade museli and granola. Also they had a fab selection of teas. This is a great B&B if you need to find somewhere to stay near East Midlands Airport or in the East Midlands area.

Spent a night here and was treated excellently. This B&B is quaint and the rooms are unique. They are tucked into all parts of the house. We stayed in a room at the top of the house and were very happy with the accommodations. The breakfast the next morning was excellent. The host even brought out toys for our one-year-old daughter to play with while we finished breakfast. Probably one of the best B&Bs we've stayed in.
