Karen looks after you very well – she’s such an expert on B&B she runs courses on how to do it. And how to do it beautifully: unwind in this fresh converted granary with old beams, high ceilings and a sun-filled dining/sitting room overlooking the hills. You sleep over in the barn: choose between two bedrooms – one up, one down – each with its own entrance. Find beautifully dressed beds, silent fridges, good lighting, homemade cakes. Bathrooms have deep baths (and showers) – from one you can lie back and gaze at the stars. Karen’s breakfasts promise Ludlow sausages, home-laid eggs, fine jams and homemade marmalade.
