About the location

CLUN

Bishop's Castle 7 miles; Ludlow 16 miles.

A.E. Houseman's poem, “A Shropshire Lad”, called Clun “the quietest place under the sun”, and with its dramatic ruin of a Norman castle, Saxon church, the bustling river which flows under the 14th Century pack horse bridge, and three country inns, Clun is a rural gem situated in the South Shropshire Hills. It 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 routes winding their way through the countryside with the Clun and Kerry Forests, Offa's Dyke, and Kerry Ridgeway all close by. Enjoy the historic towns of Bishop's Castle, Presteigne, Ludlow, Shrewsbury, and Hereford, a must for visitors.
