Birches Mill is tucked away in a quiet Shropshire valley close to Clun. The setting is idyllic - by a stream and overlooking the countryside with great walking country on your doorstep. Pubs are available in both Clun and Bishops Castle - both just a couple of minutes drive.
The interior has been renovated to the highest standard of comfort and style and is maintained to perfection. The attention to detail is of a boutique hotel standard - more toiletries than usual and lovely towels etc.
The breakfasts are excellent. Fresh orange juice to start. Fresh fruit salad complements the cereals and the cooked breakfasts are delicious. One morning we thoroughly enjoyed a compote of rhubarb (from the garden) and ginger. Quite the best rhubarb I've eaten. The table is laid beautifully - white linen and everything sparkling.
The garden is also a delight and obviously tended with care.
Andrew and Gill are charming hosts - attentive and thoughtful, good fun and intelligent. They are keen to ensure you have everything you need and make the most of the area while respecting your privacy.
Tea and coffee facilities in the room are much appreciated when one likes a cup of tea first thing! Our room was the double ensuite overlooking the river. We loved the view and the huge bathroom. The other ensuite room is larger if that is preferable to you. Superbly decorated and furnished.
