"This B&B was the nicest we have ever stayed at.

The house, a 1770s smithy, is beautiful and full of warmth and character."  

"Lovely accommodation, super friendly host, cosy sitting room with log burner, delightful bedroom and private bathroom. ABSOLUTELY GREAT. The bedroom had a large TV, bathrobe, plenty of towels, beautiful decor, comfy bed and even a fridge for fresh milk for your tea or cold water. Smashing large bathroom with a supply of toiletries and lashings of hot water. Breakfast in the conservatory would shame many a five star hotel. Beautifully presented fresh fruit, an excellent cooked breakfast (other breakfast are available !), freshly baked pasties and toast and endless tea & decent fresh coffee. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."


"This just ticks every box when it comes to a brilliant b&b."

"We visited there when picking a puppy. Very clean and wonderfully rustic and cosy house. Breakfast was excellent and we had huge portions. Full English breakfast, and fresh fruits, yoghurt, cereals, juice,coffee or tea, jams and butter. Friendly and kind service.  Just excellent."

"Helen is a wonderful host, the house is fantastic. Cannot praise it enough. I will stay again when in area."



"Perfection in every way! Such a beautiful, peaceful place that smells delightful too. The accommodation is full of character, spotlessly clean and a peaceful oasis after a busy day. Helen and Milo are wonderful hosts - Milo bringing her ball for you to share... Why stay in a large hotel when you can stay here? A visit I won’t forget. Can’t think of praise higher than that! Oh.. and the breakfast was amazing!"

"Helen was very friendly as soon as we arrived, she couldn't do enough for us, will be going back...!"

"My father and I visited Ashby for my sisters birthday in August and booked this absolutely wonderful B&B. Helen was incredibly warm and friendly offering a glass of wine on arrival and showed us around our rooms. The house is a beautiful old country style house and the rooms were incredibly clean and comfortable. Helen was very helpful with places to go in the area and where to enjoy a nice glass of wine. The breakfast was made fresh every morning to order with an array of fruits, yoghurts cereals and an absolutely fantastic cooked breakfast 👌and milo the dog greeting you before you ate in the morning was a treat. The B&B is a stones throw from Ashby highstreet and other local amenities which was excellent. All in all a beautiful house, fabulous host and a lovely town. I'd definitely recommend staying here."

Wow Wow Wow! 

I was lucky to come across this place. Helen is a lovely and friendly lady, making you feel welcome straight away and little Milo too (the cockapoo). Lovely room and a fantastic spread for breakfast too.
