The rooms at this homely guesthouse in Bewdley showcase the heritage of the Grade II-listed building that contains them. Original beams are visible in the walls and ceiling, while the rough-hewn wooden furniture caps off a farmhouse feel. It’s in tune with the bucolic surroundings: fishing in the River Severn is a popular activity nearby, while the winding walking trails of Wyre Forest National Nature Reserve are just outside the town.
Sitting pretty on the banks of the River Severn, this intimate hotel has stylishly muted, traditionally designed ensuite rooms. Some offer river views, while others have their own balconies. The restaurant, also overlooking the river, specialises in Latin American grilled meats, while the Bewdley Museum, just next door, offers a great insight into the history of this part of the Midlands.
