A warm traditional cottage near Clun Castle.. Very accessible to the river, beautiful walks & the local pub/cafe & shop. Everything was at hand for a restful, relaxing break. Cottage was clean & welcoming.

A peaceful cottage in a lovely location.. Despite Covid-19 restrictions we had a restful break with a mixture of weather.

The property has a lovely location and is very comfortable.. There are nice walks nearby and more if you want to get into your car. The two local pubs are worth a visit for drinks and food, with a local Clun ale available in the White Horse. In these current times, it was very clean and there are products supplied to maintain it during the week. I would recommend going here and would happily return.

Despite managing to book a week away when Storm Ciara hit, we managed to still get out and enjoy some lovely walks in the hills around Clun.. The cottage was ideal for two of us and two dogs. Very cosy and everything you needed for a nice break. The oil powered range did the job and we managed to park just across the road. We ate at both village pubs and the local shop has everything you need. Plenty of walking guides provided and really was a great spot to base ourselves - trips to Ludlow, Knighton and Bishop's Castle are all easy from Clun. We did get a taxi one night to eat at Bishop's Castle which was quite expensive (£12 each way) - the food at White Horse was just as good so save your self the cost. We would recommend the cottage and hope to return again - when it is a bit better weather!

The cottage is a perfect size for a couple and 2 dogs.. We had a lovely 3 night break at the beginning of December 2019. The town of Clun is very welcoming to visitors and has good amenities. The property is located in the ideal position for plenty of long or short walks from the doorstep. The cottages internal facilities are to a very high standard and the bed is extremely comfortable. We will definitely be back.

It is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location..

Found this gorgeous little cottage for a weekend break - perfect for exploring with our 4 legged friend & a fabulous bath to soak in!! Great location too just a short walk from the local pub

Stayed here for a long weekend in February, it is a lovely cottage, lots of traditional features, fab log burner and amazing bed! It is within walking distance to a couple of nice pubs and great location for walking.

The cottage is beautiful, lovely spot for walks from the door.. Parking wasn't an issue. Very comfortable bed, furnishings etc. A range is used for the heating and cooking which we found problematic to use. Hence burned food and extreme heat with little control, instructions would help.

It was a lovely cottage with bags of character.. The Arga was a bit tricky but fine once we worked it out, though the kitchen got very warm. I'd stay there again, Clun is a picturesque little place.

Lovely cottage in a lovely village it was a shame it was on such a busy road..
Mr Hill

I have stayed at a few Sykes Cottages and all have been excellent both in presentation and facilities.. Castle Cottage was no exception. Clun is an attractive village and the cottage is within a couple of hundred yards of a good Spar supermarket, two good pubs, a smashing little coffee shop and there are lots of walks literally on the doorstep. All very dog friendly (except the supermarket) Becky was very helpful, too. Can't recommend to highly!

Cottage lovely and warm, as it was snowing outside just right.. Owner very helpful and friendly. Everyone in village very friendly and helpful. Hope to go back in summer

The cottage was lovely and cosy.. Everything was very clean and tidy. We had a lovely time as the village is very nice with lots of walks. The cottage had lots of leaflets on the walks around Clun, which was very useful and we did 2 of the walks on the leaflets during the 3 days we were there. The cottage is located in the village itself and just a couple of minutes from the castle, shop and pubs.

The location was lovely; the cottage was comfy and the people in the village were exceptionally helpful and friendly.. The present and Xmas card was a nice extra touch. Cottage recommended for anyone who is looking to get away from it all.

The beautiful cottage and its lovely décor and facilities were perfect for our 'getaway' break.. The village and surrounding area were excellent for walking/exploring - highly recommended!
Mrs Lowe

We had the best time and can't wait to return.. The cottage is so quaint and quirky, it felt like home straight away. Lots of character and decorated to a high standard. The outside patio area is private and perfect for using the BBQ. Clun has everything you could need to enjoy your stay and everyone was so friendly. Will definitely recommend.

We have just returned home from a lovely break at Castle Cottage.. The cottage is very well equipped making it feel very homely. The towels provided were large & very soft, the quality of the bedding was excellent & I was impressed that there was an option to change the duvet & pillows from feather to hollow fibre if you have an allergy or just don't like feather. There are gorgeous walks right from the door & lots of information leaflets provided for things to do in the area. The paved courtyard at the back of the property is fully enclosed & very private although I would suggest cutting the hedge down in height to make the most of the lovely view. Also I think it would be a good idea to install a hosepipe to make it easier to clean up after your dog. The only negative about the cottage was the road it was situated on. We found this to be quite busy in rush hour and we were woken up everyday by the traffic noise from 6am. But this would not stop us from booking this cottage again.

Mr Harman

The cottage was very cosy and close to the centre of the village.. Very quiet and all the amenities you could want. The village has an excellent shop and 2 great traditional pubs who do lovely food and first class local beer. Excellent bathroom with rain shower. Super efficient wood burning stove. Large comfortable bed and plenty of wardrobe space. Thoroughly recommended.
Mrs Kestenbaum

Beautiful cottage in a lovely area.. Great base for a break.
October 2016
Had a lovely long weekend in this lovely cottage and super friendly village. The cottage was quiet and well equipped (the radiators may need bleeding) and supplied for everything. A couple of low doors, but as I am 6'4 it was fine with caution. Nice little courtyard. Only 5 minutes walk from 2 great pubs with great beer and food. Traffic right outside during Clun rush hour and parking on first come first serves basis but managed to park within 100 yards throughout. A number of small practical shops also close by.

We had a great week in this beautiful cottage. The kitchen is fantastic and is well stocked with everything you need for a self catering holiday. The bathroom is newly renovated, airy and bright. The cottage is comfortable and feels like a home away from home. The patio out the back has lovely views to the hills and catches the sun almost all day. Recommend dinner at the local pub and check out the local museum which is worth a visit. the local supermarket is well stocked with no need to travel for supplies. Lots of walks around the local area and Ludlow has some great restaurants and a food centre just out of town. The owner is really helpful and does a great job looking after the property.

Mrs Pugh

We enjoyed the location of Castle Cottage; it was a haven for us after a long day spent walking. The character of the cottage helped us to feel like we were in a lovely holiday space, the layout of the cottage was presented beautifully. I thought that Clun had a lot to offer in relation to local walks, sights and amenities.

It was a brilliant little cottage for a lovely Stay in Clun, I cannot recommend it highly enough. The owner has done a grand job in fitting it out and it's a great location.The yard area at the back was a great sun-trap and very handy for the BBQ! Quiet and beautiful countryside, well worth a visit.

This tastefully renovated cottage is a real gem in a lively village surrounded by beautiful countryside. Local people were friendly, with pubs & cafes well worth a visit. Excellent walks from the front door & practical solid floors make this a great place to enjoy a dog friendly break with cosy evenings relaxing by the fire. The owner was very helpful. Would love to come again!
