About Stack or Helen Stevens

we are both passionate about tourism and believe that word of mouth is far superior than any print matter and so we strive to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. we are both new to the area although have been here 20 years!! having owned and operated a tour company we can give you good insight where to visit,

Stack or Helen Stevens purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Stack or Helen Stevens chose Dudley East

it was run down and unloved and we could see the potential, we also stayed in a couple of houses and decided that we would cater for the disabled and family's in an honest way and not just pretend what we had. we also ran a very successful backpackers hostel for a number of years and both been in hospitality most of our lives

What makes this cottage unique

it is set on 5 acres in a semi rural setting with no neighbours. you are far enough away from the town and yet so close ,there is lots of room for kids to be kids and make lots of noise and play outside, the cottage is 110 years old so has lots of old world charm and is not pretentious, is comfortable with plenty of activities for everyone
