I first visited this Milebrook House hotel with friends for dinner. The dinner was excellent and I was impressed so I visited again a few months later for a few days.
This is a Victorian house which used to be the home of Wilfrid Thesiger the famous explorer and SAS soldier. It is a traditional English style country home and is elegant and comfortable. The owner, Beryl, and her daughter and staff make one feel very welcome and there is a very friendly cat, Noodles, who keeps an eye on things without being a nuisance!
The interior decoration is very English and the garden (with peacocks) leads down to a lovely river – great for a bit of quiet resting or some tea.
