"Comfortable B&B with shared bathroom"
Adam was a good host and provided a great breakfast using local produce. The shared bathroom was clean with lots of hot water. Steep spiral staircase - not suitable for all. Interesting cottage and host. I would recommend to others - but would mention that the accommodation is small and cosy so may not suit everyone. Read less
Likes:
The cotton sheets were great and sleeping in a bed made up with blankets (not a duvet) was novel and comfy. Good, fast internet connection.
Dislikes:
No.

The Bench Mark is a private house offering eco-friendly bed and breakfast accommodation in a beautiful part of the West Midlands. Ideally located for walking (right on the Offa’s Dyke path), cycling, driving or just mooching about, the house is comfortable and centrally heated throughout. There is no TV, which makes for a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere, but if you bring along your own laptop, you are welcome to take advantage of the wireless internet access. There is a good supply of books, CDs and a variety of musical instruments.

Kington is an attractive town with pleasantly idiosyncratic shops (including England’s last traditional clog-maker), a number of pubs and a selection of takeaways and food shops. The Bench Mark is run in a reasonably eco-friendly manner and is accredited as a Green Tourism business.

Your host, Adam Watson, is a one-time bookbinder, who now weaves and spins in his spare time with occasional sallies into sculpture. He is an amateur musician, an avid reader, enjoys cooking and has a keen interest in classic cars and green issues.

Please note that owing to the many different levels in the house, The Bench Mark is not suitable for people with mobility problems. Visitors to the house should be 16 or over.

Both rooms have tea and coffee-making facilities but the bathroom and toilet facilities are shared. Bedlinen and towels are pure cotton and bathroom toiletries are eco-friendly.

Breakfast is served between 7am and 9am (other times by arrangement) and is based around full English. As much food as possible is sourced locally with the bacon, eggs, sausages and black pudding all coming from the Kington area; the marmalade is Adam’s own. Vegetarians, vegans and other diets can, of course, be catered for although a little advance warning is always helpful.

Please note a cat is resident at the property
