The Mount is 4-5 minutes walk from the centre of Church Stretton or the railway station. It is like a home stay - only 3 guest rooms, integrated with the rest of the house, and very friendly and hospitable owners who go out of their way to help. We had the Blue Room, which was spacious, clean, very nicely decorated, and well appointed. The normal sized double bed had crisp linens and, whilst a bit small for us after our king at home, would be fine for most people. The Blue Room has en suite bath and bidet, but no toilet - there is one purely for use by the room occupiers across the corridor. Slightly odd but perfectly acceptable. Breakfast is at a common table (nice if. like us, you like meeting new people) and was high standard - we had the vegetarian and another guest the bacon so both options were scored highly. Coffee also plentiful and good. A real highlight was the cosy lounge, which had newspapers (Mail and Telegraph) and a DVD player with a good choice of films. (There's also a small TV with DVD in the room). As hikers, on a very wet weekend, we also appreciated the drying facilities for wet gear. Hard to find a better place to stay anywhere at the price charged.
