Close to Burton upon Trent, Ashby de la Zouch, in heart of the National forest actually on the National forest way. You’ll love my home because of the rural surroundings. Good for couples, solo adventurers & business travellers. You will need a car as public transport is local bus.

The space

The bed is a sofa bed.

Guest access

You are welcome in the kitchen and garden + of course the bathroom.
Please help yourself to tea and coffee at any time. If you have any specific dietary requirements re breakfast then let me know in advance of your arrival. Thank you

Interaction with guests

We are likely to be around in the evenings and possibly mornings but I do work occasionally. We are happy to help answer any questions and we are sociable should you wish us to be!

Other things to note

We are pretty rural, round the corner from the National forest centre and the YHA. If you don't have a car the bus service is limited. If you have a car please do NOT PARK OFF ROAD IN FRONT OF OUR NEIGHBOURS HOUSES. There is a car park across the road near the school and often spaces on the road opposite our house.

Ruth is a delightful host and I had a restful night's sleep on a lovely firm mattress.

A lovely house owned by a lovely couple. All the boxes you'd want ticked are (the bed is comfy, the room is a decent size, the shower is good, there's even some cereal and things for the morning) but it was Ruth and her husband that really made my stay. I was up early for work but ended up staying up later than I'd intended because we were having such a nice chat. I'd recommend this place to anyone.

My partner and I enjoy getting out and about with the books to events at weekends. I love my garden --a very peaceful place to chill out. I also have a great interest in antiques and collectables.
