Would thoroughly recommend this hotel to friends and family. Had a most enjoyable stay here recently. Accommodation, food and hospitality were all first rate. The hotel is situated in a picturesque valley surrounded by numerous walks for all abilities. Would definitely stay here again. A fraction of the cost of Ludlow yet with all the charm and facilities.

After a hard day of cycling the ups and downs of the Welsh borders this place was the most welcoming of any on our weeks trip in the saddle. Great rooms fitted to the highest standards, and the only place I've ever stayed where the owner has asked whether we wanted the beds made up as superkingsized or as a... More

Beautifully set among the Shropshire hills near the Welsh border. The Baron seems naturally to combine immaculate standards with the most enjoyable of stays. The bedrooms, public rooms, gardens and indeed the whole place is demonstrably so well kept. It's family run and the three generations add to the charm. Dinner in the restaurant featuring a mill workings centrepiece was... More

We were a party of 9 staying for a 50th birthday celebration so occupied all of the rooms at the inn. The accommodation was excellent - the rooms were very clean and comfortable and looked recently refurbished (and to a high standard). Our meal at the Mill restaurant was delicious and the service very good. Breakfast the following morning was... More

Stayed for 1 night to be local for a friend's wedding. The refurbishment of what was the function room into the bedrooms is very well done. Beautiful beams, deep set barn windows, comfy bed and chunky modern, wooden furniture. Rooms were immaculately serviced and tastefully decorated (we were in number 4 which actually felt more spacious than the photos led... More

We spent two nights here last week and were disappointed with the standard of the food and service.The bedroom was perfectly adequate. The surrounding countryside is beautiful,and the pub is in a lovely location.

We had a lovely one night stay here last week & would definitely return. Our welcome from Phil & Debra was warm & we immediately felt relaxed. The bedrooms are beautiful, tastefully decorated to a high standard with original features that added character. During the afternoon we explored the pretty village of Bucknell & walked in the nearby woods which... More

We stayed for two nights with a group of friends. We occupied all five rooms and each room was lovely. The rooms are nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. We ate in the inn each night and the food was wonderful. The weather was good during our stay and we were able to sit on the lovely patio overlooking the hills.... More

We have just got back from a last minute 1 night stay. This beautiful inn is set in the countryside and has stunning views. We received a very warm welcome from Paul and although we were a bit late, they managed to rustle us up a lovely sandwich :) The bedrooms are really nice with lovely little extra special touches...

Just returned from a 3 night stay here.This was our first visit to the Baron,and the welcome was second to none.The rooms we're luxurious,with soft towels and such a comfortable bed.The breakfast was cooked to order,using homemade or locally sourced ingredients.We had an evening meal on a couple of nights ,and the food once again was excellent.
