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.

    A superb cottage in an excellent location with lovely and very helpful hosts. Loved the wood burner, beams, games room and the whole charm of the little old cottage. Little things could have made it perfect - the outside looked a little unloved as the grass was long and the two lavender pots had dried up. But no complaints and would go back. It's in the middle of nowhere on a lovely farm so you have help close to hand.

    Lovely little cottage! Julie took our call at past midnight because we couldn't find it on arrival - that's service for you! Thank you. The surroundings are beautiful and it helped that the weather was wonderful. Would love to come back for longer next time. My only constructive criticism is that, having spent many years travelling in many different countries around the world, that the english are the meanest in terms of giving you anything for free! some tea/coffee would have been appreciated after a long journey and I forgot my wash bag but there was nothing in the bathroom. No hair dryer. Just stuff that doesn't cost very much but make a big difference. Anyway that's just my thoughts. X

    A lovely little cottage in a beautiful part of the country. The weather was great when we were there so we ate our evening meals outside at the table and chairs provided. It was so peaceful! The generator was very noisy but we put it on when we went out so it didn't disturb us too much (the garner explained the instructions for the generator to me but I found it all quite difficult to remember so I recommend writing them down!) The beds were really comfy and it was very clean. I'd recommend it.

    Beautiful, quiet location. Delightful cottage with great games room. Very comfy beds. Great outdoor patio. The cottage is on a farm. And the farmer is lovely. This part of Shropshire is so chilled and relaxed. A proper get away from it all destination.

    Buckshead Eco Cottage is in a superb location, far from the madding crowd. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place for you. The farmer, Trevor, is so friendly and welcoming and the fire was already lit when we arrived. However, having said that, we went in a cold March so the fire was badly needed as the cottage can be a bit cold. This was the second time we stayed there and I have no doubt that it will not be the last. The village of Clun is also delightful and there are so many beautiful walks and places of interest that I could easily spend a month there. Very highly recommended unless you want arcades, night clubs etc!

    Sometimes you want the hustle and bustle of a city break, sometimes you want peace and quiet and solitude and Buckshead was perfect for the latter. I couldn’t criticise the cottage in any way my wife and I are looking forward to returning soon.

    A very compact cottage in a great countryside location, distant from neighbours. The cottage is accessed up a farm track a couple of 100 m long, but this sets it up and above the owner's house. Despite being called an "eco" cottage it's really quite comfortable, bottled gas provides for the cooking and wood for the burner does heating and hot water. Perhaps some more effort could be made to keep the draughts out (both doors and windows let the cold air in). The lounge was smaller than I expected, it's really just the small area shown at the bottom of the stairs, but this does mean that you have to sit close to the fire. There were only two of us in the cottage, I think it would have been very cramped with more than 2 adults.

    This is our second visit this year. It’s a great remote getaway, in a quiet location with amazing views, I can’t wait to return.

    This is the best place to say to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. A great cosy cottage with amazing views over the valley and farm land. There is a lot of satisfaction in creating your own electric and hot water for a gorgeously warm shower. We spent some time in the games room and the kids even longer as we cooked dinner. The organic farm it's on is an interesting place to spend time too with it's friendly cats cows and sheep. I wouldn't recommend taking your E-Type Jag or Ferrari 458 along but most other cars would be fine up the track to get there. Over all a very relaxing enjoyable stay, we intend to return.
