Good Hotel Guide Review
Ideally situated for exploring Powis Castle or foodie Ludlow, this red brick Victorian vicarage stands back from the winding A483 in the Welsh Marches, looking over rolling pastures to the Shropshire hills. It has been run as a B&B since 2006 by owners Helen and Tim Withers, who welcome new arrivals with tea in the drawing room. The bedrooms, each named after a nearby river, are traditionally styled and furnished. Mule has a five-foot double bed and blue toile de Jouy wallpaper. Severn suite has two double bedrooms with a shared bathroom between. Teme, the largest room, has a six-foot double bed and the bathroom has a roll-top bath with shower attachment. The large garden is home to a wildlife pond and vegetable beds. If you wish to eat in, you can sit down to a three-course dinner of local and organic produce which might include free-range chicken with peperonata, sweet potato mash and purple-sprouting broccoli. Dinner must be pre-booked. At breakfast there is a buffet, laver bread omelette and hot-smoked salmon with scrambled eggs.
