Bed & Breakfast

Welcome to The Bench Mark B&B

The Bench Mark offers comfortable, 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 there is free wi-fi if you absolutely have to keep abreast with the world. The house is decidedly a home, with certain amount of ‘creative clutter, a good supply of books 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 green and eco-friendly manner.

Your host, Adam Watson, is a one-time bookbinder, who now weaves, knits 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 and narrow stairs, The Bench Mark is just not suitable for people with mobility problems. Visitors to the house should be 16 or over and cat-friendly.
