Despite being rural, we are within easy reach of the A488 – A49 – Ludlow, Church Stretton and Welshpool. Bishop’s Castle and Clun are each only four miles away.
On the way to Ludlow is Stokesay Castle (English Heritage), a fortified manor house and well worth a visit.
ACTON SCOTT – a small hamlet near Church Stretton was the setting for the BBC’s Victorian Farm.
Just over the border into Wales is Powis Castle.
Between Newcastle on Clun and the Anchor is the Nature Reserve of Rhos Fiddle. This heath upland retains many native plant species with curlews, merlins, and brown hares. Here too is ‘Moorhall’, the workshops of the renowned Textile Artist and Designer Bobby Britnell.
