More about our Breakfasts
We cook local outdoor reared pork sausages & dry-cured bacon from local butcher Peter Coates & Son of Alrewas. Our eggs are free-range, sourced locally from Wendy or Ben in the village, they are happy hens that are free to roam around outside - the yolks are a beautiful dark yellow colour and they taste divine! They can be boiled, poached, fried or scrambled with cream and fresh chives Put this with fresh tomatoes & field mushrooms, healthy fried bread and other things from time to time.
Apart from the traditional English items we serve fresh fruit salad, fresh grapefruits, organic milk, yoghurt, wholemeal bread, porridge with maple syrup, home made muesli, home made marmalade and preserves and quality cereals. We also serve fresh fruit-juice (no long-life stuff here!), cafetierre coffee, lots of different teas and seasonal produce from our own garden such as fresh baked rhubarb, stewed fruits and other seasonal items.
You can eat as little or as much as you like & we can cater for early or late leisurely breakfasts to suit. For people in a hurry, please enquire about our pre-ordered breakfasts so you can get away quickly in the morning.
More about our Rooms
The Green room is complete with en-suite wet room and double water/mud bed. Don't worry the water-bed is not one of the old fashioned ones you slop about in, this one is one of the very latest & is much more firmer because they have baffles inside (which makes it more like mud than water ..). It is also heated & we can personally recommend it! This room looks out across the very pretty village green where you can often see the ducks wondering around.
The Blue room is situated at the back of the house & overlooks the garden, you can also see the village green. This room has a good size separate bathroom (with bath & shower) for your sole use. It is a very quiet room equipped with a fantastically comfortable Dunlopillo bed with Latex mattress (anti-allergy type). This bed can be made up as a king size double or split into two singles (it has a clever zipped mattress to stop you falling through the middle).
Both rooms use top of the range Dorma Bedding, have antique furniture, a combined TV/DVD/CD player with Freeview and you have a hospitality tray including tea, coffee, hot chocolate and fresh milk (no plastic cartons!).
