We met Karen online first, then in person in the US. It was a pleasure to stay with Karen and Rob at Hopton House in Shropshire! Karen is a wonderful and gracious hostess, and a delightful personality. The rooms are lovely and sparkling clean - fitted with all the amenities one could hope for. And the lemon drizzle cake that greets you on arrival - wow!
Breakfast is sumptuous, with choices from full English to other selections, plus home-baked breads, fruits, homemade marmalade, etc., etc. While dining you are entertained by the bevy of birds attracted to the feeders and cover in the garden, and the household chickens in the yard. If you ask nicely, you can also meet the B&B dogs, Mitzi and Murphy!
Karen was extremely helpful with maps and suggestions for walks and sightseeing. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!
