    “Fantastic cottage in a beautiful area”

    This is an absolutely fantastic cottage in a beautiful area. The cottage itself is very comfortable, spacious and tastefully decorated.

    This is an absolutely fantastic cottage in a beautiful area. The cottage itself is very comfortable, spacious and tastefully decorated. The living room comfortably seats 5 with 2 small sofas and a tub chair, the kitchen is spacious and very well equipped making it easy to whip up a family meal after a day sightseeing. The dining table seats 6 easily. We were especially pleased to see that there was more than ample cutlery and dinnerware meaning that we never ran out of teaspoons even when the dishwasher was full! The spacious utility room houses a freezer, washer/dryer, downstairs WC, along with ironing board, iron, airer, outdoor furniture, hoover, brooms and baby equipment. Everything you need to make it a home from home! It is also large enough to house a buggy and/or bikes. Upstairs are 3 very comfortable bedrooms, a good sized family bathroom with large bath and an en suite with a fantastic large shower. The Juliet balcony in the main bedroom is perfect for sunny days. I thoroughly enjoyed some 'me' time reading with the doors open, overlooking the beautiful fields while my family played cards downstairs. We were lucky enough to have lovely weather all week and enjoyed many breakfasts and dinners on the decking in the back garden. The cottage also has a good stock of books and several very good books detailing the history of the area and places of local interest. The village of Clun is a lovely, friendly place to visit, with 2 pubs, a small takeaway, butchers, hardware store, fantastic gift shop, tearoom, coffee shop, Spar and small shop offering essentials. Clun castle is well worth a visit. The centre of Clun is less than a 10 minute walk from the cottage with a path all the way, although the first part is currently overgrown and very difficult with a wheelchair. The road however is not particularly busy. We enjoyed visits to Craven Arms, a short drive away. There is a Tuffin's supermarket which has the usual supermarket items along with lots of lovely locally sourced items. There are also several takeaways should you not feel like cooking. Ludlow is a beautiful town to visit, along with the castle. We popped into Ludlow Food Centre on the way home. It again has lots of lovely local produce and the Ludlow Food Kitchen serves delicious meals. They also cater for a gluten free diet which made my daughter very happy! We also visited Acton Scott working farm, Aberystwyth, Shrewsbury and Leominster. There are any more places we would have liked to visit but ran out of time! There is so much to see and do and this is a fantastic base to travel from. We will definitely be booking again soon!

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.
