    We have just returned home from a lovely break at Castle Cottage. The cottage is very well equipped making it feel very homely. The towels provided were large & very soft, the quality of the bedding was excellent & I was impressed that there was an option to change the duvet & pillows from feather to hollow fibre if you have an allergy or just don't like feather. ...

    We have just returned home from a lovely break at Castle Cottage. The cottage is very well equipped making it feel very homely. The towels provided were large & very soft, the quality of the bedding was excellent & I was impressed that there was an option to change the duvet & pillows from feather to hollow fibre if you have an allergy or just don't like feather. There are gorgeous walks right from the door & lots of information leaflets provided for things to do in the area. The paved courtyard at the back of the property is fully enclosed & very private although I would suggest cutting the hedge down in height to make the most of the lovely view. Also I think it would be a good idea to install a hosepipe to make it easier to clean up after your dog. The only negative about the cottage was the road it was situated on. We found this to be quite busy in rush hour and we were woken up everyday by the traffic noise from 6am. But this would not stop us from booking this cottage again.

The property

This lovely mid-terrace cottage is situated just a couple of minutes’ walk from the centre of the charming Shropshire village of Clun, just seven miles from Bishop’s Castle.

The cottage dates from the late 18th century and is full of wonderful period features.

Enter directly into the beamed sitting room with its large inglenook fireplace boasting a fabulous woodburning stove.

Take a couple of steps down into the kitchen which has a feature stone wall, a stone flagged floor and a Stanley oil range which also powers the heating in the cottage.

To the back of the sitting room is a beautifully designed bathroom with stone walls, quarry tiles and a rain shower which sits over the centrally positioned freestanding bath.

Climb the steep and winding cottage stairs to access the two bedrooms, one of which has a feature fireplace, wooden floors and a superb pine double bed which is guaranteed to provide a good night’s sleep.

To the rear of the cottage is a small paved patio area where you can relax with a cup of coffee as you plan the day’s activities.

Clun is a delightful Shropshire village which sits on the River Clun.

It is a very important historic village due to its position on the Shropshire/Welsh border and it is home to the ruins of a Norman castle, a Saxon church and a 14th century bridge.

Today, Clun is a popular location for walkers and cyclists and has a couple of pubs and a fine selection of independent shops.

Within short drives are a number of wonderful Shropshire towns including Bishop’s Castle and Knighton.

The medieval town of Ludlow is just a half hour’s drive and is well known for its culinary heritage with a wide selection of renowned restaurants, tea rooms and independent food stores.

A beautiful terraced cottage with plenty of period features in the picturesque Shropshire village of Clun.

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.
