  • “Perfect Retreat For Seeing in the New Year”

    A last minute booking with the owners David and Gill, saw me and my wife have 6 wonderful nights of tranquility in the wonderful Lime Lodge at Clun Valley Lodges. From December 27th to January 2nd in ever changing gale force winds, snow, rain and a fun spells of sunshine, the facilities and location of the Lodge are heaven. Well equipped Kitchen area, perfect living area, good size bathroom with bath and seperate shower, excellent master bedroom with superb storage, similar size other bedroom with two single beds. The owners kindly provide all the cooking equipment (tongs were missing, but owner will rectify before next guests arrive), towels and bedding. Ludlow is a 15 minute drive away offering excellent supermarkets, fresh produce market as well as numerous local deli's to purchase your food and drink from. The lodge has Wi-Fi and freesat TV, DVD Player, so despite the weather i could be on the internet whilst my wife curled up with a cup of tea and copious amounts of Childrens Films. The views of the River are great, although very noisy and fast running due to all the inclement weather. The lodges are contained on a deadend track away from all noise and disruption. We had two excellent quality meals at the Hundred House Inn, 3 miles away in nearby Purslow. We also ventured out on several local walks when the weather allowed. Although very very Hilly the stunning views and countryside is breathtaking, especially with snow on the ground. We came for relaxation and to unwind and the saddest thing was having to leave. Would always recommend a stay at David & Gill's perfect lodge.

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.
