    This impressive end of terrace cottage is situated nicely on the edge of Clun - a small village, but within easy walking distance of the centre. We chose it principally because it is ideally situated for our week walking the surrounding Shropshire Hills. We found the cottage to be exactly as advertised and depicted on the web description. It is modernised, very clean and tidy, well appointed and has everything within it that we needed. We did not do much cooking but there were plenty of utensils. All the basics (sometimes missing in rentals) like washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and toilet rolls were provided. The cottage and everything within it were in good condition. For our specific needs it ticked all the boxes, these were; central to the Shropshire Hills, within walking distance of a village centre including a pub, included Wi-Fi and off road parking. There are two pubs in the village both offering local beers (in once case brewed on the premises) and food. There is also a small supermarket with lengthy opening hours. The only possible downside for some - though not us, might be that the small rear garden (with a magnificiant rural aspect) is half decking and half stones - there would be nowhere with grass for young children to play. This proved to be an excellent choiuce and we recommend it.

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.
