“Field full of poo”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2010

We booked a couple of ights on the campsite, if you can call it that. They charged £20 per night for us to stay in a field full of what looked like pig poo. The facilities were awful, a portacabin for toilets. The field is quite exposed, and our caravan nearly blew over, so we turned it to face the wind. This upset the owners who fixed a notice on the outside of the caravan telling us to turn it round. Not a pleasent break.

Stayed July 2010, travelled as a couple

This is a simply wonderful place to stay in a corner of England which is a well hidden secret. Situated on the Shropshire/Cheshire border outside the small town of Whitchurch, Gill and John Lewis go out of their way to make your stay a complete restful break. More and more farms in the United Kingdom are diversifying by converting outbuildings which were once the home of sheep and cattle into accommodation which is often - as in the case of Mile Bank Farm - luxurious at rock bottom prices. But there is much more than this at Mile Bank. Each en suite room is decorated and furnished to very high standards with some much appreciated little touches in addition to the usual tea/coffee making facilities such as sweets, bottles of water, sewing kits, the list is endless. (Did I mention the melt in the mouth chocolate cake I was offered on arrival?) However, the piece de resistance has to be Gill's breakfasts which you order the night before via an individual sheet of tick boxes. I made the fatal error (in terms of waistline) of ticking the lot and was rewarded by a heaving plateful of the most wonderful farmhouse breakfast I have ever tasted with everything locally sourced and freshly cooked to order. On our first of two nights Gill kindly booked us in at The Swan at nearby Marbury which was so good we booked in again the following evening. (A review will follow!) In summary, this has to be one of the best farmhouse B&Bs in the country - you will not be disappointed.

  • Liked — The peace and quiet, spotless accommodation and fantastic breakfast!
  • Disliked — Nothing at all.
