The Experience

A Georgian house in the middle of pretty Sutton Bonington – and an easy stopover from the M1. Choose a garden spot and listen to the birds while your hosts bring you a pot of tea. 

Breakfast is in the orangery – you’re surrounded by a forest of greenery with banana and orange trees, ferns and a deliciously scented lemon verbena which tumbles out of a window. Chris and Janine give you a full English cooked on the Aga with tomatoes and herbs from the garden, local bacon, sausages and honey, homemade jams.

Wander the colourful gardens, read by the fire in the snug, dip into magazines and board games, help yourself to a sherry or port nightcap. There’s an arts and crafts gallery in the village with a café and you don’t have to go far for dinner – the King’s Head is a three-minute walk. You can also walk to the University campus in ten minutes; return to comfortable bedrooms named after flowers.

We stayed one night here on the way to see our grandchildren, and it was our first night away since lockdown began in March. So much effort had gone into making guests feel safe, whilst not compromising an informal, relaxed approach to hospitality. The room was comfortable and the breakfast, served in the lovely garden, was superb and set us up well for a day of running after small children in warm sunshine. Thank you so much!

We stayed at the Bones' b & b last week and it was a really pleasurable experience. Nothing was too much trouble, the food was excellent and the bedroom very comfortable. We arrived well after dark, and the place is not easy to find, but Mr. Bone was at the gate waiting for us in case we got lost. Real service!!

Christ and Janine (the hosts) are the most wonderful people on heart! They made us feel like home, really. Super great people, super great house and rooms, super nice food, we have nothing else to say, everything was perfect. These people are really attentive to details. They have a wonderful garden and we totally loved our stay, we recommend to every person who will read this review to go there for sure! Thank you very much for everything, may we meet again!

Seen in a shop in the USA - "Quality, Service, Price, choose any 2". The implication being these measures pull against each other and cannot all be met at the same time. St Anne's House proves it is possible to provide top quality and great service at a sensible price. Why Stop at Meeting Expectations When You Can Exceed Them? One of the very best places to stay - enjoy a few days away :o)

Trevor, Retford

Mum and i stayed for one night in two separate rooms. Chris and Janine are fabulous hosts, so warm and welcoming and really helpful in making sure my 90 year young mum's needs were attended to. Just little touches but they really made a difference to her. The rooms are beautifully and individually decorated with great taste.. Lovely linens and towels too. We had a fabulous cooked breakfast with Janine's lovely homemade marmalade and jam . The environment is very special. This is a B and B with heart and a real bijou experience at a sensible price.

Linda, Nottingham

Jan & Chris are incredible hosts, the attention to detail is outstanding - the food delicious! St Anne's House is a beautiful property, nestled next to the church. We were very grateful to be able to take our elderly dog. There is a lovely walk to the river, a pub and tea rooms.... we will be back! Thank you!

Emma, Wells

Chris and Janine are most attentive, welcoming hosts. We arrived after a long journey to a friendly welcome, warm fire, a delicious supper and very comfortable beds. Chris made us a smoked haddock and cheese omelette with homemade bread for breakfast which was truly delicious. The village itself is very pretty with good walks along the river and an easy walk to the university. The extra little, thoughtful touches at this B&B make it one of the best we have stayed at and we thoroughly recommend it. Thank you, Chris and Janine.

Bryher, Truro

From the moment you arrive at St Anne's House, you're welcomed and cosseted. Homemade cream tea on arrival, sherry and port in the rooms for a little nightcap, superb locally sourced breakfasts including tomatoes and herbs from the garden, cooked in the AGA and served in the beautiful Orangery. Plants flourish here as they do in the wonderful garden, where intoxicating scents from the rambling roses lead you to wander and exclaim at the profusion of shrubs, fruit trees and homegrown vegetables & herbs. Choose your spot amid the beauty and drink it all in. Lovely, comfortable rooms too.
