Milebrook House Hotel, Knighton - Tel: 01547 528632
A beautiful Country House Hotel and restaurant on the borders of Shropshire and Powys in Mid-Wales
Three acres of gardens surround Milebrook House. The productive kitchen garden and herb garden provides many of the vegetables served in the restaurant. We have an abundance of fruit trees including, redcurrants, blackcurrants, gooseberries, damsons, apples and pears which are used seasonally on our menu. Our tunnels provide some lovely early growing vegetables including asparagus and rocket.
To the west of the house we have a large croquet lawn, with table tennis, an ideal way to spend an afternoon or summers evening. The views from the lawn are outstanding, looking across the river to the Shropshire hills. The lawn is surrounded by rhododendrons, azaleas and many exotic trees.
To the east is the terrace looking over our herbaceous borders. A gazebo and various secluded corners of the garden are perfect for relaxing with a book or a glass of wine. Beyond this is the paddock which has been planted with over 600 native trees. The paddock also has a wildlife pond, with great crested newts, dragonflies and regular visiting kingfishers and herons. A path leads to the river Teme, with views once again to the Shropshire hills, a fantastic place to see many birds including dippers, kingfishers, herons, red kites and buzzards.
