A Little More Than Your Average Hotel.........
Escape the “hecticness” of everyday life, hang your coat up and sink into one of our cosy armchairs next to the warmth of an open log fire without a care in the world. The Bear of Rodborough is a little more than your average hotel on the side of the road.
We began life in the 17th century as a former coaching inn. Set within 300 acres of land belonging to The National Trust, the beautiful landscapes and rambling hills go on as far as the eye can see, all the way to the River Severn and Wales in fact.
Home to the dog walking community and golf enthusiasts, with a course perfectly positioned in the heart of The Common, The Bear also has another special local grazing nearby. The herd of Belted Galloway’s were the first cows to ever roam The Common, and have been cherished as part of the community ever since, particularly around the 18th hole.
We’ve taken our historical ambiance and installed comfy beds, warm furnishings and hung an exciting display of vibrant artwork to provide you with an experience that’s more than just a good night’s sleep. Walk along the original flagstone floors, unwind in the snug seclusion of one of our armchairs with a book, or take a leisurely amble up the splendid oak staircase and down the windy corridors to discover our collection of beautifully designed bedrooms.
