Value
Pleasant Places Guesthouse was established in 1997. The 4 star Guesthouse has been completely renovated, in September 2017, with all rooms and public spaces redesigned and updated by an award winning interior decorator. Each thatched, en-suite room with own private entrance, has been created to have its own unique look and feel, yet reflects a consistent, understated elegant style in a beautiful country setting. The emphasis throughout is on comfort and luxury in a completely relaxing and tranquil environment. Pleasant Places Guesthouse is situated centrally in the Midlands Meander.

A quiet retreat which we appreciated after the city. Attentive, friendly hosts with an informative knowledge of the area and the Midlands. Very comfortable accommodation and good food appetizingly presented. After travelling on dusty roads our car was washed - an unexpected service!
