Hotel with 18 rooms £80-£165 prpnb






A fine, family owned country house hotel on the banks of the river Severn, three miles from Shrewsbury town centre. It has the charm of an old coaching inn, having stood on the old A5 London-Holyhead route. In the 1930s, it was bought by Sir Clough Williams Ellis of Portmeirion and Romney Bay House fame (see Kent section of guide). It was extended and converted into a hotel, assuming the name Mytton & Mermaid, the mermaid being the crest of Portmeirion.

Today it guards the old Atcham Bridge and enjoys lovely views and sweeping river lawns.

The 18 bedrooms range from the Mytton four-poster through to the Courtyard rooms, which are very popular. Nice touches within the bedrooms include homemade flapjacks and a wide range of coffee and teas. The heart of the hotel is the AA two Rosette Restaurant, which uses Shropshire local produce where possible,with menus changing to reflect the seasons. Afternoon tea with homemade cakes has become very popular. Food is available 7am until 10pm and includes childrens’ and vegetarian or vegan menus. Picnic hampers can be supplied. The hotel offers mini breaks, and the Mytton Sunday break is very popular.

The hotel also owns the quaint oak-beamed Bramble Cottage opposite the nearby National Trust Attingham Park. This provides a self-contained or self-catering alternative for up to six people.

Open all year except Christmas Day.
