7 of us stayed, we were all exhausted when we arrived having walked for 30 miles up the Grand Union Canal, the owner suggested we have a take away and eat in the very homely kitchen which was fab as we could all have a cold bath, followed by lovely hot showers, eat and fall into bed. Breakfast was great.... More

I had a visitor from Spain who couldn't be accommodated at home so I needed a local B&B of high quality and I certainly found one in Dawn and Steve's lovely farmhouse/cottage. Set in beautiful rural Warwickshire with the picturesque village of Knowle nearby and easy access to lovely walks along the canal, it was ideal. My friend was so... More

We have stayed at the Far End several times and always enjoyed the ambience and quiet location. As always Dawn and Steve were very welcoming and made us feel at home. The rooms are spacious and the breakfasts a very good start to the day!

Knowle is a great place to stay if you are in the Solihull area or attending the NEC. It's got great pubs and restaurants but right on the Grand Union canal which is a pleasant place to take an evening strole. Dawn and Stephen make you very welcome in their comfortable cottage just outside the town centre.

I was very fortunate to find this wonderful gem some years ago and have made numerous return visits. The last time I stayed was for the Christmas holidays 2014 and I am now trying to book again for a short break soon. This is a lovely peaceful period home and the owners are more than willing to accommodate special arrangements.... More

I had a very happy two night stay in this beautifully renovated cottage. My room, which overlooked the garden and surrounding fields (a great treat for a city dweller like myself) was very comfortable and well designed, with a modern ensuite shower room, as well as lovely old wooden floors and doors. Breakfast, in the large farmhouse kitchen was great,... More

Dawn and Stephen (?) made me very welcome in their lovely comfortable home. The Christmas lights in the garden were very tasteful and the illuminated deer were simply magical. I just wish I had time to explore the area

Last time we went to a concert at the NEC we were younger and willing to do the round trip in a day. Now we're older and wiser and decided to make a weekend of it! As it happens it was for the consecutive Peter Gabriel tours; there was just a large gap in between! Anyway, my Wife and I... More

Stayed here about a month ago and forgot to review. Lovely cottage, very friendly. Warm cozy room and a good breakfast. Would highly recomend. Only stayed one night, as travelling through between jobs. Will stay there again, if in the area.

Myself and a colleague stayed at Far End when we were attending an exhibition at the NEC. Knowle has a good selection of restaurants including a Toby carvery and Indian and Chinese restaurants all within about 5 minutes or 7 minutes walk from Far End.
