    “Our second stay at the site, but ...”
    Our second stay at the site, but next door cabin. Due to limited mobility and being tall, it was really difficult to get up off the bed/beds as they were all really low to the floor. Saying that, they were comfy mattresses. Well stocked kitchen except for oven gloves. Lovely peaceful site, friendly managers, best location on the riverbank to watch birds, fish etc.

About the location


Bishop's Castle 7 miles; Ludlow 16 miles.

A.E. Houseman's poem, A Shropshire Lad, defined Clun as '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 a country inn, Clun is a rural gem situated in the South Shropshire Hills. It lies on the Shropshire Way in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to the border of Wales, 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. There are a wide range of festivals and shows on offer in the surrounding area throughout the year, including The Green Man festival in May. From Clun, you can also enjoy exploring the historic towns of Bishop's Castle, Presteigne, Ludlow, Shrewsbury, and Hereford, a must for visitors.
