The Experience

James and Zoe bought Milebrook at the end of 2018 and already they’ve put their mark on it. Any sign of tiredness has been cleverly lifted and the fresh renovation means comfort and style now reign. Parquet floors gleam, huge windows show off the views and good art pulls everything together.

Take a seat in front of the fire in the cosy bar for a G&T before heading out for supper, there are good local choices. Breakfasts are a feast – porridge, local bacon and sausages; yogurt and cereals if you don’t fancy the full works – eaten in the bright and airy dining room or on warm days, the terrace is a lovely spot.

Each bedroom is big enough to sit and read or watch TV; peaceful too – you’ll get the morning sun or evening glow in all rooms. The grounds lead down to a wooded area and pond and beyond that the river Teme for a gentle stroll; there’s croquet, badminton, boules and table tennis in the gardens; and you can join Offa’s Dyke path in nearby Knighton.

Accommodation

Reviews

A breath of fresh air is sweeping through this beautiful old country house hotel in the unspoilt Teme valley. All the original character is being preserved whilst a subtle, upbeat elegance is moving in. The perfect place to retreat from the bustle of modern life and recharge those drained batteries. You will be well looked after and once refreshed, explore! There is so much to see and do nearby.

David, Sawday's inspector

Beautiful hotel, comfy, large bedrooms, helpful staff, delicious evening meal. My friend is partially-sighted and therefore nervous about tripping/falling etc. and staff very kind in attending to her needs.

Location

The neighbourhood

The Teme valley is a slice of unspoilt, wooded countryside in rural Shropshire with Herefordshire and Wales within touching distance. The market towns of Knighton, Presteigne and Ludlow are all within 20 minutes and you can join Offa's Dyke path and Glyndŵr's Way in Knighton. The National Cycle Network has plenty of routes on quiet roads all around. Stokesay Castle is a 25-minute drive, Hampton Court and Powis Castle aren't much further. There are plenty of good pubs nearby: The Harp at Old Radnor and The Riverside Inn in Aymestrey.

Local points of interest from Zoe Carter & James Sheehan

  • Milebrook house was once home of Sir Wilfred Thesiger the explorer and was visited by Emperor Haile Selassie.
  • Milebrook House is situated near two National Trails, Glyndwr's Way whic begins at the clock tower in the centre of Knighton and The Offa's Dyke footpath, it's no wonder Knighton is a mecca for walkers and ramblers
  • The Spaceguard Centre is a working astronomical observatory in a stunning location above Knighton in the Welsh Marches. With fascinating exhibits & telescopes the Spaceguard Centre is a truly fascinating place to visit.
  • If relaxing isn't what you're looking for, try The Phil Price Rally School, it's about five miles away, the ideal way to spend an exhilarating day! Perfect for a birthday or anniversary present.
  • Milebrook House Hotel is an excellent place for bird watchers, we have a great many species including Red Kites, Buzzards, Dippers, Spotted Fly Catchers, Kingfishers, Peregrine Falcons, Ravens and lots more.
  • We enjoy the ultimate borderland location, situated 2 miles from the picturesque market town of Knighton in Powys and 12 miles from the busy market town of Ludlow in Shropshire with its medieval castle, beautiful architecture and famous market.

Introducing

Zoe Carter & James Sheehan

James and Zoe left London and 20 years of advertising and marketing careers to return to the countryside (Zoe's parents live nearby) and pursue a self-employed lifestyle and embark on a new adventure. They have begun a renovation on the entire building, and they have plans to offer yoga, mindfulness and meditation as well as wedding packages. They are relaxed and welcoming hosts who look after you from booking to check out.
