About the location

MILSON

Cleobury Mortimer 3.3 miles; Tenbury Wells 5 miles.

The small village of Milson boasts an 11th century church and beautiful unspoilt countryside. The nearby riverside village of Neen Sollars dates back to the Saxon times and is home to the popular 'Live and Let Live' pub serving real ale and home-cooked food. Just three miles away, beneath the shadow of the mystical Clee Hills, the pretty town of Cleobury Mortimer provides a refreshing selection of shops, pubs and restaurants in an array of Georgian and Tudor architecture, along with a striking parish church with an unusual, twisted spire. The area around the Clee Hills provides excellent walking, cycling and golf, plus fishing can be enjoyed at one of the many pools in the area or on a quiet spot along the River Severn. Tenbury Wells is a charming, ancient market town situated on the banks of the River Teme in Herefordshire. Dating back to the Iron Age and said to have been called 'my little town in the orchard' by Queen Victoria, Tenbury Wells boasts a unique 18th century bridge built by Thomas Telford, the magnificent Pump Rooms, which housed baths where local mineral water was available, and many other listed buildings dating back to the 17th century. Many festivals can be enjoyed in the town throughout the year. The historic market town of Ludlow, situated on the River Teme, boasts nearly 500 listed buildings and original medieval street patterns. Renowned for its shopping, Ludlow offers a number of antique shops, art and craft shops and many award-winning restaurants, as well as numerous tea shops, pubs and inns. The town's regular street markets held in the shadow of the castle, also showcase a range of goods from cheeses and fresh produce to books and local crafts. Well worth a visit are the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge, Leominster, Hereford and Shrewsbury, as well as the Severn Valley Railway, Berrington Hall and Hay-on-Wye, famous for its annual Literary Festival in May/June.
