  • "It was a lovely break over the Xmas period."

    The cottage had everything. The cottage was cosy and warm and had everything you needed. The recliners were perfect to put your feet up in the lounge in the evening. There is a choice of two pubs 5 mins walk away.

    Wow Tuc Tin was such a lovely cottage we could not fault anything, immaculately clean, so comfortable, lovely garden for Bruce our boxer dog (and ourselves) and ideally located we could not ask for anything better. Great walks from the doorstep no need to take the car out. The White Horse a gem of a pub just around the corner (lovely meals), well stocked Spar. Clun and it People are so friendly and welcoming. We definitely return to this lovely cottage.

    Perfect location for exploring south Shropshire. Dog friendly. Outdoor space needs some attention and with neighbours freely accessing garden, perhaps not for those seeking privacy. The cottage also fronts a road that can be busy at times. We had a lovely time.

  • "Lovely warm cottage ."

    Great location . patio area needs some attention , nice bench table but next to oil tank and boiler .. not pleasant. Would be nice if moved down the garden . As a dog friendly cottage great garden but neighbour uses veg patch and greenhouse which should be fenced off if dog friendly so not dug up !!!! and he doesn’t always close gates . This would not stop us returning but needs to be mentioned.

    Two fantastic pubs just a short walk from the cottage, had a meal in 1 which was lovely and reasonably priced, locals very friendly, great walks with the dog straight out the door, especially around the castle. Steve at number 16 was very helpful and answered any questions. We book a couple of cottages each year and this is one of the best, I don't know why it isn't fully booked.

    Very comfortable, a real home from home. It has everything that a couple could need for a stay and there is a long garden which catches the sun and is ideal if you have a dog. Great walks into the country from the cottage. It is on the main road through the village but this wasn't a problem for us and we were always able to park outside. This was our second stay.

    Only criticism is that as the key is with a neighbour and they knew we would be arriving late Friday evening, it would have been nice if they had popped in put a light on and switched heating on. We arrived as i said late to a totally dark cold cottage. That said everything else was spot on

  • "Had a lovely few days, owner and key holder very friendly."

    Great location in a nice area which was great for walking and the pubs were good (nice beer) with everyone being very friendly. In terms of the cottage I would recommend maybe a table and chairs in the garden itself (most of it is used for fruit and veg but there could be room and this might be nicer than the seating outside the kitchen which due to weather felt a bit dark and damp - we were lucky rest of week with dry weather hence maybe seating further down would be a nice option if there for longer. The cottage has been done out really nicely- very cosy downstairs with a really nice size bedroom upstairs. If you struggle with mobility the stairs do have a narrow footing and the bathroom is downstairs :) Kitchen had everything we needed and really helpful to have some cleaning products available (not always the case). Overall a great stay and one we would do again.

  • "This is comfortable and well equipped cottage which was spotlessly clean."

    We were welcomed by the very helpful caretaker who lives next door. The cottage makes a great based for exploring the South Shropshire Hills and surrounding areas. There were only a few slight negatives, we found the cottage a little gloomy especially the living room and decor is a little dated . There is a nice seating area just outside the back door but the rest of garden is not particularly private and neighbours who tend the garden tend to come in without notice, also for our very small dog the garden was not dog safe due to gaps in the fence so we had to keep him on the lead all week.

  • "Tuc Tin is a very nice cottage ideal for couples in a nice little Town with a couple of pubs selling nice food and a good selection of drinks, there is also a very good handy Spar selling everything you need, all this within a couple of minutes walk."

    The cottage has a lovely garden and a nice small terrace to sit out on. The only small issue with the cottage can be the traffic and parking. With just a two foot wide footpath outside on an A road, traffic can be noisy at times, but when quiet very quiet. Dont expect a lie in here. Parking can be a problem with at times having to park 100 yards away. Overall the cottage has everything for a pleasant stay. One piece of advice though for the owner could be to replace the rather tired shower curtain and ageing towels.

There was plenty to do in the games cupboard. I was especially taken with the drawer full of art supplies.. If I could draw/paint, I would certainly made use of those.

    Beautifully crafted woodwork and you could see that I lot of work had gone into make this a cosy cottage. The village was small and friendly and would definitely want to go back again. The bathroom was as little old fashioned but perfectly functional. It would have been nice to have Wifi but that it a personal preference and certainly not essential. It was just so nice having a proper home from home and it suited our needs perfectly.

    The garden could be enjoyed if a small bistro set or even 2 garden chairs were available Parking was also an issue as the cottage was on a main road and the residents had their cars parked there. I would return again as it is in a beautiful spot for exploring and walking and the white horse pub serves nice meals and also offers breakfast and take-aways

    when we opened door the place was freezing we put on heating the bathroom heating didn't work the fans in bathroom was disgusting all full of dirt the lampshades were dirty all cobwebs behind doors the fire place hadn't been cleaned at all full of old ash and the grate looked as though it hadn't been cleaned for months. tv was dusty and sticky the place looked dark and dingy the outside in places was overgrown and wasn't very nice at all. in my opinion I wouldn't recommend tuc tin cottage didn't even spend a night there walked in and walked out again when we contacted sykes they didn't want to know in my opinion offered 40 pounds compensation which I thought was a insult we should have got our money back.

    Further to our recent conversations, I can confirm that the normal check in at this property is 3.30pm. The keys were left for you as a 'one off' on this occasion, as you were arriving early, which the owner was happy to accommodate. As previously advised our booking conditions do state 'that if you have any issue at a property we ask that you contact the owner or Sykes to give the owner the opportunity to resolve the issue'. Unfortunately, you did not call the owner or Sykes to ask for any assistance. You left the property and requested a full refund, which the owner was unwilling to provide as you did not give him the opportunity to resolve any issue that you found. This property constantly receives great feedback as you can read on our website. We are sorry you are unhappy with the outcome. Property Owner

The property

This is a cosy, one bedroom, terraced cottage, located in the picturesque village of Clun in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Traditionally-furnished throughout with an old world cast iron range, it really captures the original character of the cottage.

Downstairs, there is an open plan living and dining area, with a stunning arched stone fireplace housing the freestanding old-fashioned range, with oven and small fire cradle offering the novelty of the warming glow of a natural fire during the cold months.

The separate kitchen enjoys countryside views.

Upstairs, there is a comfortably spacious bedroom with a craftsman-fitted pine, overlapped floor and a large thick rug, extending either side of the bed to add extra cosiness.

Tuc-Tin garden has a stone patio, which has a combined bench seat and table, ideal for eating outdoors during the warm weather.

There is a pleasant, enclosed lawned area for relaxing and sunbathing in, with an arched bench seat at the bottom of the garden to suit the afternoon sun.

The 800-year old Clun Castle ruins can be seen from from Tuc-Tin, approximately one hundred yards away, with the hills of the beautiful Shropshire countryside beyond.

With two pubs in the village, as well as tea rooms and high quality butchers, there is everything you need on your doorstep.

The surrounding towns and villages are all easy to get to and a half-hour ride can take you to Ludlow, Bishops Castle, Church Stretton, Long Mynd, amongst many more idyllic places to visit.

Travelling around Shropshire, Hereford and the Welsh countryside offers relatively quiet roads so you can get to your choice of destinations very easily, whilst enjoying the journey through the beautiful green hills and woodlands, whether you are walking, biking or driving.

This is a fantastic property for couples to enjoy all year round.

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.
