    “The Lodge exceeded our expectations.”

    Everything was there and provided. The location was idyllic - at the end of a small site of 10 lodges with the River Clun running along 3 of its sides.

The property

Clun 2.5 miles.

A beautifully-presented, single-storey, bespoke wooden lodge on a small park of ten lodges, ideally situated beside the River Clun in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of Shropshire's Clun Valley.

Immaculate throughout and providing spacious, contemporary accommodation, this wonderful Shropshire lodge sits in a superb position, with the River Clun accessed on three sides, and provides a perfect romantic retreat or peaceful hideaway for those seeking a fishing holiday in an idyllic setting.

This lodge near Clun has been thoughtfully decorated and is set entirely across the ground floor.

Guests will find two charming bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen with a bright dining area, plus a comfortable sitting area complete with a warming woodburner.

Full height glass doors afford attractive views towards the river, and on warm summer evenings they can be swept open to invite inside a cool breeze.

Wander out onto the raised decking with your morning coffee and revel in the peace and tranquillity of the area or simply relax at the riverside and try your hand at fishing on a sunny afternoon.

There are excellent walks and cycle paths from the doorstep of this Shropshire lodge, with the enchanting wildlife site of Clunton Coppice just a short stroll away.

Bury Ditches is close by, boasting an impressive Iron Age earthwork fort from which uninterrupted views can be enjoyed.

The local history of this impressive area can also be discovered in the village of Clun, a short distance from this Shropshire lodge along the valley, with its romantic 11th century castle ruin and local amenities including shops, tea rooms and welcoming rustic pubs.

An outstanding Shropshire lodge, ideal for a memorable holiday at any time of year.

About the location


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.
