Bed and Breakfast
Dog friendly country house sleeping 10 with games facilities and wild swimming, near the Shropshire Hills

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Lower Buckton Country House, Ludlow, Shropshire, sleeps 10 in 5 bedrooms.

Lower Buckton is tucked away down a lane, away from main roads and in an ancient hamlet just 10 miles/15 minutes west of the medieval, walled market town of luscious Ludlow in south Shropshire.

This is a fab old, 5 bedroomed former farmhouse, with a millstream at the bottom of the garden. Lower Buckton is a self-catering house sleeping 10 guests. Bed and breakfast is sometimes available.

Lower Buckton is easily accessible, only an hour's drive from Worcester and the M5 Motorway, and about 3 hours from London, but a million miles away from hectic city life. The historic market town of Leominster, awash with antiques shops and the start of the picturesque Black & White Village Trail, is nearby. Church Stretton's Longmynd Hills are 25 minutes north on the way to the delights of Shrewsbury, Shropshire's county town. With Wales just a couple of miles up the road, Lower Buckton is ideal to explore The Marches, in the Welsh borders.

Local towns feature specialist independent food, drinks and antiques shops, Michelin starred restaurants and real-beer pubs. The area is awash with castles, museums and galleries, churches, riverside and park walks and open-air markets. The surrounding area is famed for its landscape, literary connections, great houses and fine gardens and picturesque black and white village architecture.

There are local golf courses and race-courses, as well as various National Walking and Cycle Trails with events throughout the year. The Herefordshire Trail runs behind the house, and Offa's Dyke Path and Mortimer Trail are both easily accessed.

Children by negotiation. Non-hen/cat chasing dogs by arrangement. Horses are encouraged.

Eco Policy: We are thoughtful of the environment and the impact on the local community. All “waste” is recycled as much as possible, with bins provided for bottles, paper and metal.

Secluded, peaceful and tranquil, Lower Buckton is the perfect place for foodie breaks, market town shopping and country pursuits.
