  • "We loved this property and its location."

    With 4 adults, 4 kids and a dog we needed somewhere with lots of room. The house was absolutely amazing, perfect for all our needs. The hot tub was brilliant at night and the garden allowed the kids and dog to run around with safety. We visited Ludlow Castle and Clun Castle on our trip and the furthest only 30 mins away. We will definitely be returning. Couldn't recommend highly enough

    ) Property was warm when we arrived in Feb which was appreciated with log fire burning already. Hot tub was used and enjoyed by all....even in the rain! Everything we needed was in the house and generally it was all in very good condition. There were 8 adults in our party and all agreed we would return.

    We are a family of 6 with 4 teenagers and I have to say we had the most relaxing week you could wish for, the hot tub was a hit. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and also a big enough dining room and lounge for us all to get together and eat and play games. Well equipped kitchen, beds extremely comfy, huge stack of logs, peaceful location with beautiful views what more could you want, we will definitely return in the future! Thank you Jenna and Jason for a fantastic visit

  • "Peace and quiet of stunning rural location."

    Feeling part of countryside life: harvesting, cows, sheep, goats, horses all within view. Treat for townies! Huge garden and hot tub provided great chance to relax as a family which included a 2 year old and a 6 week old baby. Owners, Jenna and Jason, responded really quickly to any concerns including replacing dishwasher within 2 days. Property is really spacious and was generously equipped for the number of guests.

    Flies where annoying but the owners had fly traps to try to limit them. Owners came daily to clean the hottub. Place had everything you need. Would highly recommend. It is remote with a small village 7 min drive away.

  • "The house is delightful and with a generous utility room and plenty of space for shoes, boots and coats would work well in all weathers."

    Our family loved the snug with ‘massive’ TV, and the garden which is beautiful with stunning views and we enjoyed the ponies looking over the fence. The kitchen is well equipped with an excellent fridge freezer but the two small ovens challenged cooking for a large group. An additional set of keys and/or a key safe would be a good addition. One family had a puncture at Ironbridge and had to wait 4 hours for the AA involving the other family driving a 2 hour round trip to collect the only keys. Also be sure to drive very slowly down the access road there are potholes!

    Thank you for your comments. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We are available to help any time with any queries you may have during your stay. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "The property was spot on."

    The area was lovely and remote, it should be noted that you have to travel to get anything ie milk nearest village is 2miles but takes 15 mins to get there due to country lanes which some may find a problem. Only negative for a large property meant for large groups one bedroom had no wardrobe so had to share with another other than that place was perfect. Would have been nice to have met the owners

  • "Booked very last minute due to the situation in Wales and we were absolutely delighted with the house,its location and the size."

    The only thing that let it down was the ensuite bathroom as the shower and toilet were not working properly,we did not report it as it was not a major problem and didn't spoil our holiday.We loved the layout of the house ,the boot room was great for shoes and washing the dog,the living room with a good tv and lovely log burner was spacious but cozy for the 6 of us and the wi-fi was excellent. The outside space was amazing so tranquil and it was lovely to be surrounded by cows,sheep and 2 friendly ponies.We really enjoyed using the hot tub the views from it were great. The nearby village of Clun was good for eating out with a couple of pubs and there was a good Coop there if you needed any groceries, Bishops Castle was lovely too with some nice local shops a butchers and a Spar and a coop.We had two meals at the Castle Hotel which were lovely, well organised for COVID 19. We had a lovely time and really enjoyed being in the depths of Shropshire as a family away from all the doom and gloom we would definately return.

    We really couldn’t have asked for more. There is everything that you’d need there - from a fully equipped kitchen to beautifully set up bedrooms and bathrooms. We had a few tiny issues with the toilet in the ensuite not flushing properly and the Hoover was missing its front cover so we couldn’t hoover but aside from that I’d go back in a heartbeat.

    On our arrival We were welcomed with the log burner lit and there was a real Christmas tree that was beautifully decorated. The house was very clean and well furnished, the kitchen had everything we needed for our stay with loads of plates etc. The hot tub was a huge hit with us, which was maintained each morning by the owner Plenty of towels were proved, we took extra but didn’t need them. There was a huge amount of wood for us to use in the burner as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and was disappointed when we couldn’t book for next Christmas as it was already taken. Thanks for such a enjoyable relaxing week!

  • "A choice of bedding would make a good holiday even better!"

    The only option provided were feather duvets and pillows. Our (adult) son is allergic to feathers and so we had to improvise for him, which wasn't ideal. If you're only going to offer one option, synthetic would be safer. Also, duvets were heavy which was just about OK in October but would have been far too hot in June/July.

    When we arrived on Friday afternoon the house was cosy and welcoming, with the wood burner blazing merrily in the main sitting room and the central heating warming the upper floor We were fortunate with the weather for mid October, and had a classic Indian Summer weekend, with misty mornings and glorious late afternoon sunshine.

  • "Beautifully situated in wonderful surroundings."

    The photos on the website do not do it justice. Some maintenance is required as things are getting tired. Owner was a little too attentive for our liking and spoiled the privacy that we wanted and the garden is not secure for dogs (open to their sheep field). I was concerned that the sheep grazing on the lawn hindered our own dogs to be running loose and free unattended 100%. We vacated a night early due to this so left on the Sunday afternoon. I would probably not return to this venue but I would recommend to others just with a few pointers regards our experience.

About the location

CLUN

Bishop's Castle 6 miles; Ludlow 18 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.
