|Pippa and Carl Gunstensen offer a warm welcome at The Little Red House as it is known. Completely separate with its own parking, entrance and garden, the spacious two-storey extension to The Red House can sleep up to five people with additional space for a cot bed if requested. This flexibility not only makes it a popular choice with families and groups of friends, but also for couples, contract workers and individuals wanting more space, privacy and character than a standard hotel or single guest room can offer.
Its great location right in the heart of the Midlands and just minutes from junction 4 of the M5 makes it a perfect stopover point to break up long journeys and also a very accessible and centrally located base from which to explore Central England. It's also perfect for visiting friends and relatives in the surrounding villages.
Upstairs, a luxurious light and spacious room with stunning views over fields and farmland, can be arranged either as a twin or superking ensuite bedroom. Downstairs, a comfortable double sofa bed can sleep a further two people and there is also room for a cot or camp bed for a child if requested.
The Little Red House has its own private living and dining area, off-road parking and large double doors leading out to its enclosed garden and patio area.
The house is furnished for maximum comfort with ample storage space, quality linen, tea and coffee making facilities and Freeview TV both upstairs and downstairs. There is free wireless internet access.
Double-glazing, new insulation and central heating makes The Little Red House warm and cosy in the winter whilst double opening French doors and windows on all sides keep it cool in the summer. Enjoy a glass of wine or board game alfresco on the patio on warm evenings.
The local village pub serves delicious food and is just a short walk away. There is also an abundance of award-winning gastro pubs and restaurants within 5 minutes drive.
The Little Red House is available and priced on an exclusive basis – the whole space is yours for the duration of your hire.
Prices include a delicious, locally-sourced full English Breakfast:
£60 Per Night for the WHOLE Cottage!*
* The above tariff is based on a maximum of two occupants. Additional friends or family members (free if 3 years of age or under) are charged at £25 per person per night. Maximum occupancy is 5. Minimum stay 2 nights

IMPORTANT - Access and Health & Safety
The Red House (and attached Little Red House) is part of a small, privately owned estate that is made up of farmland, farm buildings, three other residences and light industrial units. As it is private property and there are health and safety hazards on the estate (e.g. moving vehicles, livestock etc), it is not permitted to visit or use any outdoor space or building other than that directly relating to The Little Red House (i.e. the accommodation itself, its surrounding garden, the parking area and drive).
Animals, particularly dogs or horses, that may be close by in adjacent fields or areas should not be approached or fed snacks as they belong to other people and their behaviour may be unpredictable.
Carl and Pippa Gunstensen accept no liability for any incident or accident that occurs as a result of a Little Red House occupant failing to abide by this notice.
As the accommodation is arranged on two floors, it is not suitable for wheelchair users or people with limited mobility.
By making a reservation, it is taken that these terms and conditions have been read and understood.
