For a peaceful weekend break, or a cosy retreat when working away from home.

Glencoe House is a Victorian terraced house on Anglesey Road in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire.  It's in an ideal location for getting around:  the railway station, bus stops and town centre are just a 15-20 minute walk away, and a newsagent's shop and chippy are nearby.

Walkers and cyclists are welcome.  Glencoe House is just a 10-minute walk to the Washlands, with footpaths throughout the floodplains along the River Trent.  Burton is at the heart of the National Forest, and just south of the Peak District.  The National Memorial Arboretum is a short drive away.  

The National Brewery Centre and Marston's Brewery both offer tours; and it's worth checking what's on at the Brewhouse Arts Centre, especially their one-night-only touring performances.  Burton Albion's football grounds are nearby, and St. George's Park is not far (about a 10 minute drive).  

We offer a double en suite room overlooking the back garden, and a twin room (not en suite) overlooking Anglesey Road.  (Nb  Our single guest room is no longer available but both the twin room and double room may be booked by a single guest at the single's rate.)  There is a guest lounge with TV and wifi, and there is parking for one vehicle.  Your host, an experienced home cook and cookery writer, will happily cater for special diets.  For more details . . .

FYI: Glencoe House, we're told, originally began life in the early 1900s as a small neighbourhood bakery.  You will still find homemade bread here:  seeded soda bread made by Dee here at Glencoe House, and when Dee can make it to Stone or Stafford or Penkridge market, she returns with a trolley full of excellent yeast breads made by baker and jam-maker Diana Smith.  When she can't make it to those markets, she trundles to Derby for sourdough breads, made at The Loaf in Crich.  The breads served at Glencoe House are proper breads; Chorleywood they are not.

A note to cat lovers . . .
The Wallace, our much loved ginger tabby (pictured below), died in January 2019.  He had been ill for a very long time.  
Wallace remains very much missed.

Glencoe House currently has no resident cat, but that does not mean you will not see cats here.  Dee looks after two diabetic cats:  brothers Jake and Wilbur, every other fortnight.  Jake & Wilbur returned to Glencoe House on the 15th of March for another fortnight's stay.

Covid-19:  
'Lock-down' was announced on 20 March, so the cats will remain here until the government announces it's safe for people to mingle.  Jake & Wilbur's owner will be mightily glad to be reunited with them then, whenever 'then' may be.

As mentioned above, B&Bs in the UK (which includes us) are not permitted to take guests until after the government deems it is safe for us to do so.
