    Keys Cottage is situated on the outskirts of Clun, but within walking distance of two pubs, a good cafe, a fish and chip shop, a small but well-stocked village shop/post office and a lovely souvenir shop (Caractacus) in which one can waste half an hour very easily!

    Keys Cottage is situated on the outskirts of Clun, but within walking distance of two pubs, a good cafe, a fish and chip shop, a small but well-stocked village shop/post office and a lovely souvenir shop (Caractacus) in which one can waste half an hour very easily! There are lovely walks nearby and and there is of course the castle just over the bridge which is near the village centre. The cottage is comfortable, spacious, warm (we were there for the second week in February) and incredibly well-equipped. It's been furnished with an eye to luxury and good taste but bearing comfort in mind. The view from the back of the house is fields and when it snowed we sat watching the whirls of snow whilst seated at the dining table cradling large mugs of hot tea! Keys Cottage is the best accommodation I have stayed in during about twenty years of renting holiday cottages. My sister and sister in law, who were the other members of the party, both agree that we would like to go back there for a restful holiday next year sometime. We recommend it unreservedly.

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.
