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 great cottage in a lovely location. A little cold in autumn, but once the wood burning stove is going it warms up nicely. Look out for the lovely little ginger cat that paid us a visit, it's super friendly & purrs for England.

    As before, all was as expected. We were not entirely sure why the fire, even when burning away happily, did not really heat the room. We love this part of the country and Buckshead is a great location for walks wihtout needing to drive, but also those a bit further away.

    Fabulous cottage, secluded and private. A proper break from the mundane. Well recommended.

    We rented taking account of the photos shown on the Cottages website. However the gardens were very overgrown. There was no internet and intermittent TV which should be explained on the website. Plenty of visitor guides but no guest book of comments and no house guide in relation to how to use the equipment within the cottage.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for the comments. Just to say that the cottage does not advertise Wifi and in our experience the mobile data can be intermittent at this isolated location and it is dependent on the provider. We do allow the garden to become overgrown occasionally as we feel this benefits wildlife and limits the amount of energy needed to strim, mow and cut. We are not sure where the detailed information booklet and visitors book for the cottage had gone on this occasion but we do apologise as they had been mislaid and are now in the cottage. We will keep an eye on the TV reception issue, although its not something we have encountered previously. We feel that the cottage ethos is about experiencing and enjoying a low- impact environmental holiday and as ever if anyone is experiencing any problems at all please do contact us immediately.

    We stayed here for 3 days over New Year 2018 and had a superb time. The cottage is gorgeous and just what we were looking for to get away from the rat-race and back into the country. The owners were very available in advance of our stay to answer all of my questions and gave us a lovely warm welcome. The kitchen is very well equipped and had everything we needed to prepare a roast meal for 4 people. I really feel the cold but was surprised how comfortable I felt staying there - we made sure the fire was going in the evenings and the hot water bottle kept me warm enough as I got into bed. As long as people are aware that it can get cold and dress/prepare appropriately it's absolutely fine. The cottage is very remote which is part of its charm and we enjoyed driving out to Bishops Castle for food shopping and to enjoy a local pub. Mobile phone reception isn't very good but that wasn't a problem for us and the GPS got us there very easily. We loved going up to the farm to meet Trevor and his wife and got to handle cute piglets! We would highly recommend the cottage and hope to visit during the summer to be able to do some of the lovely walks that we spotted on the many OS maps that the owners have kindly made available to use while staying.

    Great stay at the cottage. Paul and Julie could not have been more helpful, especially when we locked ourselves out! Totally our fault. As it was a particularly cold, wet week, the hot bottles came in useful, as did the extra fleeces, but that did not deter from enjoying the log burner along with roasted chestnuts and the mulled wine. We completed a 10 mile walk on a dry day, directly from the cottage, along lovely countryside and although quite steep in places, even I, as a non walker, managed it with a few stops. Make sure you visit Ludlow and the castle which was excellent value, along with a trip to the coast at Aberdovey. Next time we will make sure we visit the red kite sanctuary, which we missed because it was closed on the later part of our stay but managed to see some on the walk. Great cottage to get way from the hustle and bustle and don't forget to buy the lovely meat and eggs from the farm to take home. Enjoy the quiet and the stars

    We went for a nice relaxing weekend, and that's what you get at this cottage. Peaceful, away from everything, great views but you do need to travel for shops etc. We loved it here and would definitely come back. The games room was also brilliant for our 7 year old.
