Just returned from a super stay at The Old Kiln House B&B! The B&B is set within walking distance of the little shops and cafe's in Shipston on Stour, just 30mins from Stratford. The main house is hidden behind a stone wall but upon opening a small wooden door you enter into what can only be described into a 'Secret Garden' with pretty shrubs with table and chairs set to get afternoon sun - bliss! A real haven...
Even though the house is a period rambly-type large cottage, inside the B&B it is more like a 5* Boutique Hotel - I stayed in the Westminster Room - and the bed, linen, quality of fixtures and fittings and attention to detail is of the highest quality - cannot be faulted, and all brand new....I slept like a log to just hear wood pigeons outside my window... and yet Bridget leaves you to enjoy the peace and tranquility to come and go as you please and is so kind and helpful - nothing is too much trouble.
The breakfast was wonderful - rich fruit compot with fresh Greek yoghurt to start, rich ground coffee, toast and jams as well as a large cooked breakfast with 'butcher' sausages and bacon! Breakfast is served at separate tables off the kitchen area so you don't have to sit with other people if you don't feel you want to engage in conversation with other guests early in the morning, and the room looks out on one side to a gorgeous view of the garden and birds flying to and from from the bird feeders, and on the other set into the old stone wall, a wood burning stove for the colder months. I really wouldn't change a thing and will be returning as soon as I can!...
