    “We chose Fern House as it was dog-friendly.”


    Full of charm and character inside with a very comfortable bed and modern bathroom with large shower unit. The living room has a beautiful Inglenook with an almost new wood burner but very much in keeping. Leintwardine was unknown to us before but proved an excellent base for visiting the area with a charming multi-arched bridge over the fast-flowing river Teme. Just 8 miles from Ludlow or Knighton. The village itself has an excellent restaurant/Pub (The Lion) with riverside garden, very friendly staff and a separate entrance for dogs and their owners. We found the food to be excellent. The adjacent garage and local shop is well stocked with a surprising array of staples and more. We didn't get a chance to visit the tea rooms or the excellent looking local butcher but we did go mad and have fish and chips from the smartest looking chippy I can recall seeing. Again we didn't visit the "famous" parlour pub - that will have to wait. All of these amenities are within a 2 minute walk of Fern House cottage which lies in an street running parallel to the main road through the village, so we were untroubled by any traffic noise. The local church is close and bell-ringing between 8-9pm cannot be "shut-out".
