Guest Reviews


    • “Lovely cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “A very pretty, tastefully renovated cottage on the edge of Clun village. Comfortable bedrooms, although the single bedroom is quite small. The lounge is small, but comfortable. My favourite room is the dining kitchen. A great sized kitchen with lovely units and a good sized table for our adult family party of five. There's also a great utility room with plenty of room to dry our washing and leave our walking gear. A very homely cottage with lots of nice touches. Clun is a peaceful village and has two good pubs and a few small shops, including a convenience store and butcher.”

    • “Keys Cottage is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in, the owner has clearly thought of everything and the décor is beautiful. Each member of our family remarked on the comfort of the beds and the cleanliness of the whole cottage. It is in a peaceful location and we would thoroughly recommend to anyone.”

    Mrs Mulholland, Magherafelt, July 2015

    • “This is a well appointed cosy cottage in a really beautiful area. We enjoyed using the log burning stove on colder nights. There is lots to do in the area and we strayed over into Wales for a day trip. In Clun there are good pubs doing pub grub and local ales, and some small shops. The view from the back of this cottage is amazing as you are on the edge of fields sweeping off to a distant horizon.”

    Mrs Love, Isles Of Scilly, June 2015

    • “A good location. It was very comfortable, thoughtfully refurbished and well appointed accommodation.”

    Mr Hollins, Alnwick, May 2015

    • “The cottage was cosy, there was plenty of drawer/cupboard space for clothing and the 'utility room' was brilliant for muddy boots, wet jackets etc. The beds were really comfortable and the kitchen equipment was good - also there was space in the kitchen cupboards for food we'd brought. The owner seems to have thought of everything - a really enjoyable stay. The location was also ideal, with fabulous countryside and friendly local people.”

    Mrs Turner, Kettering, May 2015

    • “Loved re-visiting the town of Clun. Keys Cottage was an ideal base - comfortable and welcoming, couldn't fault it.”

    Mrs Thorogood, Leighton Buzzard, March 2015

    • “Just perfect accommodation, could not fault it.”

    Mrs Allsop, Burton-on-Trent, January 2015

    • “Keys Cottage was one of the best holiday cottages I have ever stayed in. It had all the amenities of a home rather than a holiday let. I would recommend it very highly.”

    Mrs Wardle, Norwich, September 2014

    • “Keys Cottage was extremely comfortable and well equipped. It was convenient for the local shops and had lovely views from the back.”

    Mrs Flubacher, Worcester, September 2014

    • “Cottage was lovely and the village location good, with everything you could need.”

    Mrs Curtis, Axbridge, June 2014

    • “The position of the cottage on the edge of the village was nice and within walking distance of the local pub and shop. The condition of the cottage was excellent. The en-suite bathroom was a nice touch. The decor was again fresh and clean. The whole of the cottage was decorated to a high specification and yet within keeping.”

    Mrs Ward, Clacton-on-Sea, June 2014

    • “Cottage was very well equipped and we felt like we were at home. Everybody in the village were very friendly. Fabulous meat from the butchers!”

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, in Hay-on-Wye. From Clun, you can also enjoy exploring the historic towns of Bishop's Castle, Presteigne, Ludlow, Shrewsbury, and Hereford, a must for visitors.
