    “My Husband and I stayed at this property for a week following lockdown.”

    The property is a traditional farmhouse full of character and original features but with modern kitchen and bathrooms. It looks very Impressive as you come over the hill on the approach. It stands in its own large garden overlooking open countryside. There are a couple of other properties nearby yet you are not overlooked. ...

    The property is a traditional farmhouse full of character and original features but with modern kitchen and bathrooms. It looks very Impressive as you come over the hill on the approach. It stands in its own large garden overlooking open countryside. There are a couple of other properties nearby yet you are not overlooked. The covered hot tub area is ideal; it is decked out allowing easy access to the large well maintained hot tub. It looked exactly as on the pictures and is a nice private area. It allowed us to spend many relaxing hours looking out at the lovely countryside; even had the privilege of seeing the Tawny Owl flying past (what a bonus). The owl box is in the large tree at the side of the hot tub area so you can hear him hooting around 9pm as he prepares to go off hunting. The house is well kitted out, even a few basic food provisions to get you started. Plenty of logs for the two log burners too. Bedding and towels are of good quality with luxury mattress toppers and pillow protectors. Made for a good nights sleep as the bed was very comfortable. We are keen walkers and the surrounding area provided lots of opportunity for easy or strenuous walks. You can even walk from the door. The owners are really lovely people, very friendly and approachable. Their home is fairly close but your privacy is well respected; they are not at all intrusive. We felt they went to great lengths to ensure our stay was enjoyable; nothing was too much trouble (super hosts in fact

Chapel Lawn Cottages

Set within the natural beauty of the Shropshire Hills are two wonderful properties, Chapel Lawn Cottages, found on the owner's private land within the small village of Chapel Lawn, just over three miles from the charming village of Bucknell. Lower Hodre is a large, Grade II listed cottage with wonderful rustic beams showcased throughout the property, decorated thoughtfully in keeping with the traditional style of the building whilst still offering a contemporary flair, this gorgeous dwelling sleeps nine guests in five bedrooms. Brynlikky Cottage on the other hand is a more modern, picture-perfect, timber-clad cottage with just two bedrooms, both with en-suites, sleeping four guests, providing a homely setting for a scenic Shropshire stay, with both properties benefitting from their own private hot tubs along with a beautiful garden each too. Just a short drive away will bring you to the lovely village of Bucknell, resting on the edge of this glorious Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is home to a Post Office and a local pub, whilst the larger town of Knighton is packed with all you need for your self-catered stay, from cafés and shops, to pubs and restaurants, it's a quaint selection worth discovering. Being close to the Wales/England border, walkers will be delighted to have the chance to explore the famous Offa's Dyke Path, spanning over 150 miles, it provides an easy way to experience the spectacular scenery. Venture deeper into this rural paradise and visit the town of Clun resting in the heart of the Hills, passing over The Old Bridge before visiting the remains of Clun Castle while enjoying the sweeping views of the area. Also nearby is the popular medieval town of Ludlow, a wonderfully quaint town with charming buildings, a castle and numerous restaurants, pubs and bars, as well as being famous for its reputation for quality food and drink with Ludlow playing host to two popular food festivals every year. Enjoy a well-deserved break amidst serene scenery with your loved ones at Chapel Lawn Cottages.

About the location


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.
