The property

A pretty, traditionally-styled cottage, slightly elevated above the popular village of Bucknell, Shropshire.

The cottage is a perfect base for friends and family looking to make the most of the breathtaking countryside of the Shropshire Hills which is peppered with picture-postcard villages.

This lovely cottage has comfortable ground floor accommodation with three cosy bedrooms and a family bathroom with shower over.

There is a light and airy kitchen leading off a traditional dining room.

There is also a separate sitting room, ideal for relaxing after a long day exploring the fantastic undulating countryside and surrounding Welsh Marches, with an open fire and access out onto the spacious gardens.

Outside, you can sit in the traditional cottage garden, with raised terraced sitting area, a large lawn provides the perfect venue to run off any last energies you may have with a ball game, and it slopes into a more natural orchard area, an idyllic setting to enjoy the last few rays of sun with a glass of something cool, or maybe enjoy a visit from the neighbour's friendly chickens.

The property is in the valley of the meandering River Teme and is adjacent to the Shropshire Hills, a truly magnificent landscape with rolling hills, wooded river valleys and some quaint and alluring little villages and towns such as Clun, Bishop's Castle, Church Stretton and Much Wenlock.

Nearby is Knighton, a pretty market town sitting on the Offa's Dyke, a perfect base to start your exploration of the fabulous walks and cycle routes.

Alternatively, why not go and taste some of the delights of local producers in the medieval market town of Ludlow, considered to be one of the most attractive towns in England?

The area offers numerous outdoor activities including fishing, cycle trails and mountain bike routes, horse riding or golf, with multiple walks stretching away from the village, so you really can walk from the door.

Why not try a higher octane activity with the silent thrill of gliding or perhaps a day out in a nearby rally school?

If you like visiting historic properties, Stokesay Castle, a fine example of a medieval fortified manor house, owned by English Heritage, is a twenty minute drive.

Slightly further afield, take a trip to one of two National Trust properties both within a half hour drive.

Berrington Hall is a striking neo-classical manor house, with beautiful landscaped gardens and parkland or Croft Castle with its regal veteran trees in its beautiful park and woodland.

A perfect base in a popular village, a short walk from the local village pubs, on the edge of the Shropshire Hills in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

About the location

BUCKNELL

Knighton 5 miles; Clun 6 miles; Ludlow 13 miles.

The pretty village of Bucknell nestles in the beautiful valley of the River Teme in South Shropshire, close to the borders of Wales and Herefordshire. This is a lovely area of peaceful unspoilt countryside, but still offering much interest for the visitor - the historic market town of Ludlow renowned for its superb restaurants, Ironbridge with its famous museums, and the county town of Shrewsbury are all within easy driving distance. The Heart of Wales Railway has a station in the village and to the south are the black and white villages of North Herefordshire with their cider orchards. Bucknell offers two pubs, both serving food, whilst the nearby market towns of Craven Arms and Knighton offer a full range of amenities.
