Had a very enjoyable stay. Tina and Glenn made me feel very welcome. My double room was lovely and clean. Plenty of towels, a bath robe and slippers. Tea making facilities were a plus point for me after spending all day in the woods. Location is great if wanting to be close by Cannock Chase and a very nice pub...

Dear Janet, many thanks for your lovely review - we do appreciate you taking the time to do this. We are perfectly placed for any Cannock Chase activities and if you think the nearby food is amazing just wait until you've tried Tina's Thai food.. :-) Hope to see you again in 2016..?

"I don't see how it could be improved," says my 14-year-old son. He and I stayed 2 nights last week at Willow End so he could go mountainbiking just down the road, at the beautiful Cannock Chase trail centre. I was impressed by each room having a bathrobe and slippers, so we could pad back and forth to each other's...

We stayed one night so we could do some cycling at Cannock Chase nearby. We had visited before with friends but decided to visit again as a couple.

A fantastic bed and breakfast- lovely comfortable rooms. High quality teabags and biscuits much appreciated! Real milk appreciated also! Provision of slippers and dressing gown is a nice touch. The breakfast was excellent quality and the Thai evening meals also excellent and very good value! Great place to stay for visiting Cannock Chase forest.

I stayed at Willow End for the most part of 4 weeks whilst doing some work in the local area. The location is great: just a few minutes from the town centre but tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac away from it all. The rooms are very comfortable, well stocked and looked after - always a great nights sleep. During...

Hi James and thank you for your lovely review of our small guest house.

Friendly; everything was on hand to make our stay a pleasant one.Bike storage in adjacent garage. Room was VERY well stocked....constant hot water. Pub down the road sold good generic pub food and the beer on tap was well kept. What we saw of Rugeley was uninspirational but, hey ho , we were middle aged men on a cycle tour....

My wife and I stayed here recently, the accommodation is scrupulously clean, very quiet and the bed nice and comfortable. Owners Tina and Glenn are very welcoming and helpful. The Thai food is top drawer and as authentic as it gets. We would certainly recommend that any visitors sample it. We will certainly stay here again.
