The Miller’s Cottage, The Birches Mill

Stride off to Offa's Dyke from the deep comfort of this millside home, with a wildflower garden behind and the river to lull you to sleep

This is a neat conversion in part of the original mill. Wake to the music of birdsong and the mellifluous river. The Birches Mill and its buildings date back to 1640; corn was ground here right up until the Second World War. Now Gill and Andrew, both artists, live opposite and will happily provide you with a home-cooked, locally sourced meal from their freezer should you arrive exhausted on a Friday night – or if you're simply too puffed to cook after a day's hike! You can also order a welcome box of local produce. Downstairs is a living room of exposed stonework, low, beamed ceilings and a wood-burning stove. Attached is the small, well-equipped kitchen with fun, colourful tiles and farmhouse-style wooden units. Wind up a book-lined, doll's house stair to fresh sky-lit bedrooms and an original brass bed – and wake to the morning to the light coming in through wide velux windows. A wildlflower garden sits behind the cottage, yours to catch the afternoon sun in. Wonderful Offa's Dyke can be reached by foot; historic Ludlow, Slow Food capital, is a short car hop.
