The
Experience

It’s a pretty, steep drive up Ankerdine Hill from the Teme Valley and the wide country views may have you reaching for your walking boots and/or itching to nurse a Wye Valley Ale out under the spreading cherry tree.

Smiling staff set a ‘no problem’ mood and everywhere the attention to detail makes you feel properly looked after; you’d trust them with your wedding party; immaculate bedrooms are well sound-proofed; winter fires burn brightly. 

The inn’s 21st-century renovations sit well with its 17th-century origins and the barn, with its lofty beams and nautical nods to the Admiral, is where you dine on much local produce beautifully cooked. The stops are pulled out for breakfast too: porridge with whisky and brown sugar, gently poached haddock and egg. Everything is fresh and seasonal.

Reviews

Climb Ankerdine Hill to be rewarded by this just out of the way gem. A beautiful restoration has remained faithful to the nautical history of the place yet comes with all this century's refinements and added benefits - you will be spoiled here! For a quite corner there is much to do to suit many tastes - or just curl up in a snug with a pint and read.

Location

The neighbourhood

6 miles from Worcester in quiet, well-wooded and rolling countryside, Berrow Green is on the Worcestershire Way so, ideal for walkers. Classic car fans can rent a vintage Morgan from the Malvern factory (11 miles) and climb the nearby Shelley Walsh Hill. Bromyard, and The Elgar Birthplace Museum are within 15 minutes’ drive; NT’s Brockhampton, Croome Park and Witley Court and Gardens around 30; Ludlow, Ledbury and Leominster not much more

Local points of interest from Andrew Cornthwaite

  • Situated right on the Worcestershire Way - perfect for walkers!
  • The charming cathedral city of Worcester is only 15 minutes away. Worcester's cobbled streets and "proper" shops are a delight.
  • The beautiful Malvern Hills are visible from the property, but a 15 minute drive takes you to the gorgeous spa town of Malvern itself. Check out the Morgan Car factory, enjoy an afternoon tea or take a stroll on the rugged hills.
  • If you're after history then The Admiral Rodney is perfectly situated for National Trust and English Heritage properties - when we last counted there were at least a dozen within a 30 minute drive
  • If you're staying for a few nights then check out the amazing food choices in the area - the award-winning Baiting House just 15 minutes away and the amazing Chim Doo Thai restaurant on a working dairy farm!
  • For many guests the most enjoyable thing to do is - nothing! Just relax, enjoy the country air and the amazing views and decompress in comfort.

Introducing

Andrew Cornthwaite

Kate Lane grew up in the nearby Teme Valley and after spending years in London she and her husband Andrew Cornthwaite returned to the area and set up home in the village of Upper Sapey. Their feel for how best to totally renovate and make a country inn thrive - 21st-century-style - is spot on and they’ve breathed new life into The Admiral Rodney at Berrow Green, and The Baiting House (which is also their local; they live virtually next door) as well as two other inns.
