    We had a lovely time, just what we needed for our 10th Anniversary. Food at the 'The Horns', a short walk away, was very tasty and reasonably priced.

  • "Generally it was good, we just didn't know ubers don't work there hence we weren't prepared for that and the house was quite a distance from shops."

    The hosts had prepared the house well though there was hardly any sugar and salt which made cooking hard

  • "Fantastic studio with hot tub."

    Well equipped with complimentary toiletries, drinks, milk and a jar of chocolate bars in the fridge. Plus two bottles of lager. Very clean with lovely views over the fields. Information in the studio with useful numbers and suggestions of restaurants and places to visit. The number of the owners is provided if we needed them but apart from that we were left alone. Very considerate emailing to ask if we wanted the hot tub temperature reducing in the heat. Would highly recommend.

    The accomodation was very clean and very well equipped. The hot tub was a great especially after a day walking. Cannock Chase was very close for walks and biking it also has a Go Ape. Owners answered questions we had very promptly and were extremely helpful. We are hoping to return in the never future.

    However Amazing property Inside and out amd has everything you need and more. The comfort is on top form & made us feel so cosy and like being at home. I loved the duvet cover so much I purchased one before I left. The home owner johnathan answered every query I had from St to finish & even welcomed us back in the future. This is such a cosy peacefully tranquil romantic accommodation Inside and out. Hot tub is perfect and even the surroundings makes it super cosy.

    The facilities provided were great! The decor made it very cosy and homely! I think the only thing we struggled with was the heat as it was quite warm and we didn’t know how to change the heating etc. Overall, a lovely place to stay and I will 100% recommend to others!
