We rented The Miller's Cottage for a weekend. It's a lovely stone cottage with a wood-burning stove. The countryside around is beautiful, and great for walks. Andrew and Gill, who run the adjacent B&B, were friendly hosts and provided lots of info about nearby attractions.

Our first visit to Birches Mill and we stayed in the Miller's Cottage for a long weekend while down visiting the medieval Christmas markets at Ludlow. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and idyllic setting and the cottage was picture box perfect. Andrew greeted us, showed us round the cottage, and was very helpful and friendly. We loved...

A flying visit to Birches Mill in glorious September sunshine. We've stayed here many times, both in the house and the cottages, drawn back by the spectacular setting, Gill and Andrew's warm welcome, and their delicious food. It's such a pleasure to walk, visit the local (very good) pubs and restaurants, and then relax in the stylish sitting room or... More

The male who "greeted" me asked if I had a delivery. Yes I said. Well what is it "Me" I said, I'm staying here. "You never told us you had a ruddy great big van [a Citroen panel] We do have other guests you know. Where am I going to park you????" What a pompous oaf. He had made an... More

Our third visit to this lovely and peaceful place - we've stayed each time in the Miller's House which is an attractive (and well-equipped) cottage, at Birches Mill, in a beautiful setting near Clun. (Gill and Andrew have two cottages and also run a B&B here, and it's beautifully secluded and private for all guests) The area is wonderful for... More

Our third visit to Birches Mill because it offers everything we want from a weekend break - beautiful countryside for long walks, a friendly welcome from Gill and Andrew, a touch of luxury (most comfortable bed award), and a spot of "get away from it all". With plenty of fine dining options in Ludlow you can get the indulgence of... More

... that's where we fell in love with Birches Mill. How else to say it? Countless reviews spell it out... the peaceful valley, the timeless mill, the walks, decor that combines country comfort with style, splendid breakfasts(not forgetting the kippers) and that gurgling river that is the backdrop to everything. But here's how it was special for us. We were... More

Just a great place with great hosts. Everything was just so. It is a really peaceful surround with great views and a reall feel good factor. The owners Giil and Andrew were so accomodating and was always available to give sound advice on where to eat locally and places to visit. If youget the chance, you have to stay here.
