Lock House is situated in a peaceful, rural location . We have 2 double rooms, each with their own bathroom. There is a private guest lounge and dining room. A wholesome breakfast is provided. Tea and coffee making facilities are in each room.
Lock House is a unique, 18th century property situated alongside the Trent and Mersey Canal and behind Branston Water Park. It offers a quiet location with easy access to the A38 and the midlands.
Each room has been recently refurbished to a high standard and offers every comfort. Towels and other linen are provided. There are coffee and tea making facilities as well as biscuits available , but if there is anything else needed , we are happy to help. You are free to use the guest lounge and dining room at any time, as well as the garden.

Guests have their own comfortable lounge/dining room, in which they are able to eat and drink their own foods , if wanted. They may also use the garden to relax in, watch boats go by or look out for the visiting heron.

Interaction with guests
Peter and I are happy to spend time with guests if needed or wanted, or recognise when you want your own space. Our guests dictate the level of interaction required.
Other things to note
To get to Lock House by car you need to be on the A38 Northbound, between Barton-under-Needwood and Branston, Burton-on-Trent.
Take the slip road off the A38 signed 'Branston Water Park'.
You pass Marley Tiles then Ferroli. Once you've passed Ferroli, turn left immediately into the bridle path. We are at the end of the lane by the canal bridge.
Be warned - some SatNavs don't always tell you the correct directions for the house. Please call if you have any problem finding us.
We would like our guests to inform us of an approximate time of arrival, so we can be here to meet and greet them. Once at Lock House we like to make them feel at home, comfortable and well looked after. In return they are expected to treat the house respectfully and not to smoke inside.
If there are any questions, please ask, or any problems, please let us know immediately so we can address them.

Now a retired teacher, I am loving my role as B and B host.
I still find it hard to stop rushing around but I am enjoying keeping fit, doing the garden, cooking , drawing, writing and listening to radio 4.
I look forward to meeting new guests and aim to make their stay at Lock House as enjoyable as possible.
