We stayed in Brook Farm in Berrington for 6 days in total - 3 in their B&B and 3 in the Hop Picker's House and had a fantastic, relaxing time. Sarah and Willy are incredibly convivial hosts, and make you feel totally at home.
So, starting with the B&B: there are only two rooms in the B&B and you essentially have one half of their sizeable cottage at your disposal. Our bedroom was incredibly comfortable with a big double bed with great big heavy blankets - vital given it was a very rainy and pretty cold August week. The room is decorated rather whimsically to perfectly suit the country cottage garden setting.
As guests you have access to a wonderful living room with a whole library of books, roaring wood burning stove and an endless supply of home made damson vodka, tea and coffee - we spent an inordinate amount of time reading and sleeping in its warmth.
Breakfast is home cooked by Sarah, and all the ingredients are either locally sourced - honey, bacon, Shropshire granola - or grown in their overflowing garden, which is a reason to visit all in itself.
The Hop Picker's House is one of their two self-catering cottages and once again has been thoughtfully renovated and decorated. The big country kitchen takes up the ground floor with a large kitchen table, wood burning stove and rocking chairs. Upstairs, the bedroom and en suite bathroom take up the whole first floor, with an extremely comfortable four poster bed.
All in all, Brook Farm is the perfect place to relax - whether that's eating a home cooked meal, reading by the fire or pottering about in the garden. At the same time you're only 15 minutes drive from Ludlow and a host of restaurants, antique shops and pubs; if you're feeling energetic, then walks along Carding Mill Valley or further afield to Offa's Dyke will keep you more than occupied.
