The Owner Says
Features & FacilitiesEach roundhouse has a double bed and 2 futons (which can be folded out into single beds if needed), 2 large arm chairs, a wood-burner, a desk and chair, a 43-inch TV and an en-suite toilet. Outside each yurt there is a table and chairs and a firepit. There is also a modern, communal facility building with 2 shower rooms and a full kitchen that includes a cooker, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washing machine for all to use. There is an alfresco area with a roof to keep you dry on rainy days. WiFi available around the communal building.
ActivitiesWalkers are in their element here. It's just 300m to the Offa's Dyke national walking trail, which runs then length of Wales roughly following much of the border. Some of it is also accessible via mountain bike and the surrounding Shropshire Hills are popular with those on 2 wheels too. It's 5½ miles to the beautiful old town of Clun, described by poet A.E. Housman as "the quietest place under the sun" and presided over by a ruined, English Heritage-owned castle (0370 333 1181). It's 6 miles, meanwhile, to that market town of Bishops Castle. The prominent 18th century town hall commands the main high street and hosts events throughout the year. There's also a clutch of museums and the Three Tuns Brewery (01588 638392) to explore.
Food & Drink
All the above towns have good quality places to eat. Try the White Horse (01588 418149) in Clun or The Three Tuns (01588 638797) in Bishops Castle. For something different, try a tour and wine tasting at KerryVale Vineyard (01588 620627), which also has a good restaurant, 6 miles away.
