We've just returned from our second stay at the Bringewood, and it was as great as ever. We first discovered this out-of-way, beautifully set B&B in March 2008 and enjoyed it so much we were determined to return. We somehow never got round to submitting a review but after having had an even better stay this time round we feel that it's our duty to praise the two brothers that run the Bringewood so impeccably.
The Bringewood is a converted barn set on the side of a picturesque hill in the lovely Shropshire countryside. Everything is tastefully decorated in a modern yet "cosy" way, with a large wood-burning stove in the lounge, big comfy leather sofas, and individual rooms with glorious views of the valley below, including the odd inquisitive pheasant or deer! The restaurant is of a high quality, with everything locally sourced and cooked with great aplomb - we had delicious beef and well-cooked sea bass for our two mains one night. For dessert the chef even offered to serve us a selection of the puddings as we couldn't make our minds up. Breakfast included locally-made sausage along with usual bacon and eggs - delicious.
The Bringewood really is the place to relax - we would say that is one of it's main attractions. Once you're sitting in the lounge or deck outside with a glass of wine overlooking the superb view you'll find all your worries melting away. On our second evening we were quite happy to discover that we were the only guests in the place, and the ever-accommodating Neil set up a romantic table for two tucked away in a corner, with candles and nice music playing softly in the background while the wood-burner cast soft shadows in the lowly lit room. All very romantic - and all completely unexpected - Neil really went out of his way to make us feel as if we this was our own palace in the country. It was wonderful and just showed how thoughtful everyone is at the Bringwood. On a final note, it's worth saying that the Bringewood is also excellent value for money, check their website for details but we think you'll find that a couple of nights dinner bed and breakfast is outstanding value - especially considering the quality of the accommodation, food, service, and surroundings. Needless to say...we highly recommend the Bringewood.
