About the location
Clun 3 miles; Ludlow 16 miles; Bishops Castle 7 miles.
Nestling in the lovely Clun Valley, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, amidst the rolling South Shropshire countryside, is the picturesque village of Clunton. This pretty village boasts Clunton Coppice, a wonderful wood which teems with wildlife, including wild deer and the village also has a country pub, which offers a range of local beers and very good home-cooked, locally-sourced food in the restaurant, all prepared and cooked by the owner. A.E. Houseman's poem, “A Shropshire Lad”, described Clunton and Clun as “the quietest place under the sun”, and with its dramatic ruin of a Norman castle, a Saxon church, the bustling river which flows under the 14th century pack horse bridge and two country inns, Clun is a rural gem situated in the South Shropshire Hills. It also lies in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to the border of Wales, in an area known as The Marches. This unspoilt part of Britain has an abundance of wildlife and beautiful unhindered walking and cycling country, with the Clun and Kerry Forests, Offa's Dyke, the Shropshire Way and Kerry Ridgeway all close by. Enjoy the historic towns of Bishop’s Castle, Presteigne, Ludlow, Shrewsbury and Hereford - a must for visitors.
