Property Description
‘Stunning’ is the only word which adequately describes the beauty of the views from this charming property. Originally two farm cottages built around 1850 on the Powys Estate, they have been combined to provide a unique home in a peaceful setting, on the edge of the village of Clunbury in an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, just 12 miles from Ludlow.
The lovely and varied cottage gardens extend to just under half an acre, and include lawned sitting-out areas, flower beds, shrubbery, a  vegetable garden and woodland, and afford extensive views over the Clun Valley, towards the Longmynd and Offa’s Dyke.

The property has been owned by the same family for about 60 years and has been carefully extended and improved to create a very comfortable, modern and attractive home.

In summary, downstairs is an open-plan sitting room & dining hall, kitchen/breakfast room, utility and shower room.  Upstairs are three bedrooms (master with dressing area and ensuite), plus a separate room with toilet and washbasin.
