    “As feedback to improve - No water in morning immersion needs to come on earlier and would benefit a deep clean to clear some cobwebs from ceilings,etc.”

    A bit mean on towels we were only 2 in 5 bed received no discount but only 2 towels provided ...

    A bit mean on towels we were only 2 in 5 bed received no discount but only 2 towels provided. But generally pleased with accommodation. Owner Response: Thank you for your feedback and comments and to clarify your points: The immersion heater is set to come on 3 times per day, 7am then 3pm and then 9pm to ensure that there is always a tank of hot water. With regards to the deep clean to clear some cobwebs I have raised this with my cleaner and asked her to be more vigilant in future. But by way of an explanation and not an excuse the cottage was built in 1658 and constructed with old material and has wooden beams throughout and we have come to realise that the cobwebs appear on a regular basis. Each guest is provided with one set of towels a bath sheet and hand towel. During our pre-arrival discussion you informed us that there was only going to be 2 guests staying so we provided 2 sets. You made no mention of requiring earlier hot water or extra towels. Also at no time during your stay did you contact either us or Kat to ask for any changes to be made to the cottage set up or that you needed extra towels. With regards to a discount because there was only 2 people that is not Sykes policy you book and pay for the cottage not the number of people staying. Once again thank you for your feedback and I hope to see you again at George Cottage.

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.
