The photos and info are ten years out of date.The garden is overgrown and inaccessible.The rooms need valeting unless like dead flies on the window sills.The breakfast was adequate but the crispy bacon couldn't be cut. Do the old man who runs this place a favour and go elsewhere. Beware. I cancelled our second visit in the time frame but was charged anywhere. Contacting the owner brought no response.

I booked this place based on the great reviews it has received and the pictures, which altogether give an excellent impression. It looks really lovely on the website. My stay was quite the contrary for the following reasons: We were staying in a converted -I use the term loosely- barn which together with the numerous spiders, flies, woodworm and tin roof made me feel I was staying in a cattle shed. Please see my photos showing the in-room tea provisions we were greeted with which were disgusting, along with the sofa which was tattered and torn in several places, resembling a reject from the local dump (see pic). The rug was dirty, the tv was ancient and needed an accompanying telescope to see it, it was so small (about the size of an iPad screen) and, the final straw was there were reams of cats roaming about everywhere, despite it being a non-pet accommodation. I feel the strong cat presence should be clearly pointed out in the description for allergy sufferers. Filthy, inhospitable, not like any of the photos on the websites and therefore highly disappointing. How on earth this place has such lovely reviews is beyond me! I’ve had to check several times to make sure i’m talking about the same place!!! (I am)

Response from leslie_wiles, Owner at Lower Bache House
Responded Jul. 31, 2019
We are distressed and bemused by the vitriolic nature of these comments. We can only speculate on their motivation. We will confine our response to facts. The suite concerned was custom built twelve years ago under the supervision of building regulations. It has a slate roof. We were hoping the writer could help us on the cause of the tear in the cushion cover. The television is seven years old and is appropriate for the place it occupies. Visitors do not usually come here to watch it. We live in the depths of the country and have created a wildlife friendly, poison free, environment. Consequently all forms of creatures proliferate.The variety of invertebrates in turn provide a much needed food source for our declining songbird population . Most of our guests applaud our approach. Not one other has complained at the wealth of creatures we encourage. We have been adopted by a family group of three semi feral cats. Apart from expecting feeding on demand, they maintain a reasonably low profile. Visitors are ignored. We pride ourselves on our friendly welcome, and many guests comment on it. It is unfortunate that our chambermaid unintentionally left some used crockery in the suite. For this we apologize. It would have been immediately removed if we had been advised. The suite, including the mat, was clean after servicing We hope other reviews will be seen as more accurate.

I had three wonderfully peaceful days over Christmas in a charming double room over the main house. Warm and cosy, the rustic timbered room was a chance to experience rural life from an almost forgotten age, but with all modern comforts. The lovely watercolours and sweet ornaments offered constant little discoveries as did the bookcase. The antique bath and shower was a treat, with instant hot water. And it was only the delicious breakfasts in the cider press room that were tempting enough to get me reluctantly out of my cosy bed. Wonderful juicy omelettes and fresh farmhouse bread for me! Altogether an idyllic break and I shall always remember the warmth of the kindly owners and the privilege of sharing their rural life for a magical break.

Room Tip: My room over the house was up steep stone stairs but all part of the fun. Just take it slow!

If you ever stay in guest houses in the UK, this place has to be the best you can get. I urge anyone who can to stay a night at Lower Bache House and then have breakfast in the mill grinding room with authentic quern stone grinder. Wonderful, I will be returning again soon. Absolutely ideal for quiet retreat.

After Birmingham what a pleasure to find that a bit of England still exists. A lovely old cider house in a very rural setting. Genial host who seemed to have more ways of doing eggs than Master Chef. A very comfortable room with separate sitting room and bathroom. If there were a few warts to the idyll they were well compensated. A great stay
