Accommodation Category: B and B
Little Hall Cottage in the peaceful Clun valley, has its origins in the 18th century, and has now been extended to offer 2 en-suite guest bedrooms.
Each has glorious views across the river Clun and up to the hills beyond. The rooms open onto a terrace where you can sip a coffee, watch shadows chasing across the hills and buzzards wheeling overhead.
During our build we have sourced materials and supplies locally, and constructed the rooms with locally sourced oak frame and stone found on site. The roof has a newly planted sedum cover which will grow into a multi-coloured carpet and help provide habitats for wildlife.
Each room provides bright and comfortable accommodation with TV, Freesat and Wifi, and a well stocked hospitality tray.
Breakfast is sourced as much as possible from the Clun Valley, including eggs, bacon, sausages, honey and home made preserves. Evening meals and packed lunches are available on request and you will be welcomed with tea and homemade cake on arrival.
We are close to Offa’s Dyke (about 15 mins walk) and the Shropshire Way and there are footpaths and bridleways to suit everyone, from challenging hillside and moorland on Long Mynd and Stiperstones to gentle valley and riverside routes. This area is steeped in history from prehistoric hill forts and standing stones to medieval castles, which bear witness to the turbulent past of border country.
There is always plenty going on in this part of the world. Festivals are held 10 months of the year ranging from food and drink, arts and crafts, music and performance.
