Description

This eco-friendly cottage is a great base for outdoor enthusiasts with many foot/cycle paths from the door.


Buckshead Eco Cottage offers the perfect place to relax, enjoy the breathtaking views and unwind or, for the more active, there is ample opportunity to explore the local countryside and wildlife, with many footpaths and cycle paths close by. The cottage is located within its own grounds on an organic hill farm in the Clun Valley, where electricity is generated by wind power and hot water provided by solar panels, and is the ideal holiday location to reduce your carbon footprint whilst taking in the landscape and experiencing organic hill farming. Carefully renovated to a very good standard, using local materials, both to retain its traditional characteristics but also to fully accommodate eco-friendly design principles. The Shropshire Hills are located adjacent to the Welsh border and the southern part of the region, in particular the Clun Valley, has outstanding beauty and peaceful character allowing unlimited opportunity for those that love nature, cycling and walking to enjoy the beautiful rolling landscape. Visitors can enjoy the quietness of the Long Mynd, the secret beauty of Caer Caradoc and the Stiperstones, or follow Offa’s Dyke Path, which runs just outside the local village. Other local attractions include Clun Castle and the Secret Hills Discovery Centre at Craven Arms. Further afield, day trips can be made to Snowdonia, Brecon Beacons, Elan Valley reservoir, various Welsh coastal resorts, historic Ludlow, Hereford, Shrewsbury and Bishops Castle. From the door enjoy breathtaking views and wonderful landscapes. Brynmawr Farm, the holding where Buckshead Eco Cottage is located, includes the Shropshire Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve, a beautiful large expanse of upland moorland, designated as a SSSI. Explore the farm, which hosts a range of wildlife and includes ponds, meadows and a brook. There are a number of local country pubs that offer excellent pub food and traditional ales or, alternatively, why not visit local towns such as Bishops Castle or Ludlow for a range of places to eat out. The farm leading to the property is proud to support Care Farming West Midlands. Shop 7 miles, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    Lovely character cottage on an interesting farm, with friendly owners, but just too small for two adults and two children. Beautiful peaceful location but the wrong area of Shropshire for the places we wanted to visit. Difficult with young children and "Eco" power and water. Children found the farm animals great and three kittens were born behind the cottage on our last day.

    Great out of the way eco cottage with amazing views and lots of peace and quiet. Host Trevor is a top bloke, made us feel very welcome, was really interesting to chat with and doing lot of very admirable stuff on his farm.

    I loved every minute of this holiday and the only reason I wouldn't return is because I like to visit new places and I have now 'done' this part of Shropshire. I would definitely recommend this cottage, especially in summer. Remote, peaceful, calming and beautiful... The owner, Trevor, is always willing to help and also to explain the ethos around this organic farm and wildlife reserve. Do go; it's lovely.

    We loved the cottage - really remote with beautiful views - a real opportunity to get away from it all. Once we got used to the fact that an eco cottage does not always have electricity we enjoyed stoking up the log burner and altering our day to suit the natural light. The owner and his family further down the track on the farm couldn't have been more helpful and the cottage was clean and comfortable.

    Local amenities perhaps shouldn't be factored into this particular location, as there are none to speak of that don't involve a drive, but the point is we booked it precisely because there were none. It's not a problem, so I've given it 10 even though there are few.

    If you are looking for a quiet, stress free getaway, this is most definitely your place. I have just returned from the cottage and is was so idyllic and cosy, I have booked up again for the end of the year as it was perfect. There is no phone signal and nothing nearby, but perfectly tranquil and just how life should be. Newtown is the nearest large town which is around 25 mins away, where you will find all your shopping needs. I highly recommend it for a perfect stay, just makes you enjoy the finer things in life. Almost forgot the most lovely log burner and fantastic views, can't wait to return.

    Had a great time at the cottage. It was an experience, seemed like going back in time! Being completely isolated and self sufficient. Trevor the host was great, could not have been better. Whilst at cottage it snowed, it was beautiful. Nicely situated with loads of walks right from the front door if necessary. Great local pubs with excellent food.

    Superb weekend stay at Buckshead. The fire was burning upon our arrival and the cottage had everything needed. The farmer Trevor welcomed us on the first morning and showed us around the farm on the Sunday. The local area has lots to offer and the cottage was a great place to stay.

    The weather precluded this holiday from being excellent. Storm Doris found its way into every gap in the building making the bedroom very cold. Had the weather been better we would have loved the cottage and enjoyed the surroundings. We will return in the summer months.

    This is a get away from it all cottage. If you're looking for luxury furnishings etc. this is not for you (the bed was very comfy though). But if you're after stunning views, being off the grid and privacy, its perfect. Its a quaint little place to get back to nature. There is no heating in the cottage other than a log burner in the lounge, so it started off quite cold even though the fire was lit when I got there, but the owner provided blankets and hot water bottles which were required as it was snowing outside and there are no radiators in the property, he also provided lots of logs for the fire. there isn't any phone signal or internet, and sometimes no TV signal either, but that's what this place is about. it is small, so for 2 people it is ideal, I went on my own and it was perfect.
