Overlooking the peaceful tranquillity of the River Avon, you’ll find the newly “Tourist Board” registered “Riverside Bed & Breakfast”.
I met up with owner, Meg Hanlon, who showed me around her B&B which consists of a private entranced double room with ensuite bathroom, both beautifully decorated in calming muted greens and creams creating a soothing environment. Looking around, the carefully chosen furniture offers a black cast iron bed, touch lamps and colour co-ordinated soft furnishings giving the room an elegant finish, which continues into the bathroom with its roll top bath, tongue and groove walls and a number of beauty products to use.
Meg stressed that being environmentally aware was one of her key priorities when setting up her bed and breakfast and during preparation, only low-VOC paints were used. For the general day to day running of her accommodation, she provides a hamper with a continental breakfast selection, including local organic fresh food where available. This is taken in the privacy and comfort of your own room, so you have the freedom to breakfast at your leisure.
To offer further self-sufficiency, Riverside offers a range of facilities in its accommodation, including a TV, kettle, toaster, silent mini-fridge and hairdryer and also provides a useful information folder which highlights everything from the variety of breakfast choices on offer to local attractions, walking details, bus timetables and even takeaway menu options!
Whilst the double room available for bed and breakfast does not look out on to the river, Meg is more than happy during good weather to welcome her guest with tea and home-made cake on her front lawn which does have a riverside view.
Meg explained that “Riverside Bed & Breakfast is centrally located in Bredon, and provides an ideal base for those wishing to visit friends or family who live in the locality. With its close proximity to the village church, pubs and wonderful surrounding countryside, guests can enjoy a wonderful break away with all the comforts of home”.
