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. Wi-fi is available in a separate unit on site. 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.
