  • "Lovely cottage, loved the area."

    Very clean but not so well equipped, particularly the kitchen There were few decent knives and the cutlery wasn’t good. China and glass fine but no colander. I realise not many people cook on a self-catering holiday. But I do. The Maltings cafe just across the road is really to be recommended.

  • "All was good."

    Just a suggestion for curtain/blind in the second main door as it views directly on the street.

  • "Really clean on our arrival."

    We found the heating a bit complicated and couldn't get the radiators upstairs to come on or the heated towel rails. This really wasn't a problem since the weather was pretty good. We liked the little sun porch and the fact that there was two showers. The parking was a little bit of a problem but not too bad. Clun is a lovely village with good walking country all around.

    Thank you for your feedback, I’m glad you enjoyed your visit to Clun. The instructions for the radiators are in the welcome pack. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is in a great position on the High Street in such a lovely village with very friendly people and amazing countryside."

    The cottage is generally good but there were a few issues. On cleanliness I was disappointed to find that the grill pan hadn't been cleaned properly and there were crumbs under the toaster. On facilities there were 3 overhead lights where bulbs had either gone or were absent, including in the front porch which is essential if coming back to the cottage late. We bought 3 light bulbs. Generally the lighting seemed dim in all rooms and not easy to read by (no lamp on right hand side of bed in back room). Also there only seemed to be one sharp knife in the kitchen. The bungalow at the back has a very bright security light which came on several times each night and woke us up. The back bedroom needs thicker curtains to counteract that. The website pictures show a sitting area screened by a holly hedge but actually this is where the wheelie bins are kept so a bit misleading. You can still sit nearer the back door if you don't mind being open to the driveways of adjacent cottages and people passing on the footpath. We did find the sitting room a bit soulless and a rug would have made it seem more comfortable. Personally I found the settee and chairs too low and uncomfortable so spent the week sitting on either a dining chair (by the way, one of these is broken and nearly collapsed on me) or one of the garden chairs. My partner was fine.

    Sorry to hear such negative comments, which are somewhat surprising given that we have a 100% feedback record for cleanliness. Please don’t be put off booking Rosemary Cottage which is newly refurbished and clean. I would have gladly replaced light bulbs if you had contacted me. There are spares in a drawer in kitchen. Incidentally there is a lamp in the sitting room. I have now provided a reading lamp and a rug and removed broken chair. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely time at Rosemary Cottage."

    We had some reservations about booking a cottage with no garden but the easy access to green space meant there was no problem with our 2 dogs. The cottage is very clean and fresh and Clun is a charming place, great if you enjoy the outdoors. It is a lovely area to explore. Good pubs too!

    Thank you Sandra for the lovely review. So please you enjoyed your stay at Rosemary Cottage. Hope to see you again one day. Property Owner

The property

Settled in the heart of Clun in the Shropshire Hills AONB is this pretty, semi-detached cottage, Rosemary Cottage.

This dog-friendly cottage has three bedrooms sleeping up to five guests, ideal for families, friends or couples to enjoy a relaxing break and walking holidays, complete with a fully-equipped kitchen, Smart TV, woodburning stove, and attractive furnishings throughout.

After parking on the roadside, leave your boots in the porch before making yourself at home in the kitchen, where you'll find everything you need for a self-catering holiday, including a washing machine and dishwasher.

Next door lies the spacious living/dining room where you can gather for dinner around the table for six, set by an original feature stone wall, followed by a film night in the sitting area with plush seating to sink into.

Completing the cottage are three nicely appointed bedrooms with storage space and homely decor; two doubles and a 2'6" single.

There is also a contemporary bathroom and a shower room, so you can unwind after long walks through the Shropshire Hills.

In the morning, you'll find a small patio area with outdoor seating to savour your morning coffee whilst planning the day's adventures.

The picturesque town of Clun is a superb base in Shropshire where you can dine at the Sun Inn just over the road, The White Horse Inn, and stop for breakfast at The Maltings Cafe, while you can stock up at the local convenience store.

A stroll around the town will bring you to a selection of historic sites and architecture, including The Old Bridge across the River Clun, Clun Town Trust Museum, and the 13th-century ruins of Clun Castle with sweeping views of the surrounding countryside.

Surrounding Clun are plenty of walking and cycling paths, such as Offas Dyke, whilst you can explore the likes of Bishop's Castle, home to the quirky House on Crutches Museum and the dog-friendly Three Tuns Inn.

Head to Craven Arms where you can discover a collection of memorabilia at the Land Of Lost Content, try a range of activities at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, and tour the medieval Stokesay Castle.

Further afield, you'll find the market town of Ludlow for the impressive Ludlow Castle, or perhaps explore more of the hills at Shropshire Hills Mountain Bike & Outdoor Pursuit Centre.

However you spend your holiday, make Rosemary Cottage your home-from-home in Shropshire.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
