Good Hotel Guide Review
As good as ever’, this ’s ‘delightful’ small hotel occupies an 18th-century stone dower house (once the home of Sir Wilfrid Thesiger), in extensive grounds leading to the River Teme. Milebrook has new owners. Zoe Carter and James Sheehan have taken over from the Marsdens. Locally reared meat, vegetables and fruit from the kitchen garden fuel well-presented, ‘good, if not exciting’, dishes, served in the bar or the restaurant. Antiques, books, puzzles, an open fire in the sitting room foster a traditional country house atmosphere. Bedrooms are neatly furnished; those at the rear are quieter (the property fronts a busy road). One reader this year reported a fairly chaotic experience with booking. Guests arriving by train and walkers along Offa’s Dyke can arrange to be picked up.
