Hurst Mill Farm Cottages are three superb self catering cottages located in Clun near Craven Arms in Shropshire They are situated in superbly scenic countryside at the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the river winding by and the hills forming a majestic back drop.
We have three cottages to choose from at Hurst Mill Farm. They are Dipper, Kingfisher and Wagtail.
Dipper Cottage has a large lounge with dining area and open fire. The well equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, granite work tops and garden access. Also on the ground floor is a shower and toilet. A sofa bed can be added if you want to use it as a twin roomed cottage. Upstairs, there is a bathroom with hand basin, bath and toilet. There is a large bedroom with a super king size zip and link bed (double or twin).

There is a bathroom with hand basin, bath and toilet.
Wagtail Cottage has a very large and spacious kitchen/dining room with fitted painted pine units, hob, oven and microwave. Plus a cloakroom with a toilet and washbasin, there is separate sitting room leading off it. The divided stairway leads, on one side, to a double room and bathroom with bath and washbasin. The other side leads to a twin room, bunk bedroom and shower room with shower and basin.
There are porches for firewood baskets and each cottage has an open log fire. They also have wireless internet facilities. Bed linen is supplied and a hospitality tray is provided. Each cottage has a DVD player.
The South Shropshire Hills form one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of the country. We mention some of the attractions, but there are many more. At night, there is the lowest level of light pollution in England (Campaign to Protect Rural England) and so the stars are stunningly vivid. There is very little evidence of commercialism - the nearest burger outlet is about ten miles away! But for those who like simple pleasures the area around Hurst Mill Farm is a delight.
Clun has its Green Man festival on Spring Bank Holiday celebrating the fertility of the seasons. Street theatre, stalls, exhibits and much merriment take place. There is a carnival and show on the first Saturday in August and a beer festival in October.
The town has its own museum, excellent pubs, cafes, shops and the castle. It has an antique shop featuring art exhibitions by local artists. There is a Norman parish church, a Methodist church and the historic Trinity Alms houses built in 1615 by the Earl of Northampton, brother of the Duke of Norfolk who owned Clun castle. An ancient packhorse bridge gives visitors a delightful way to cross the river Clun. All in all, a lovely place to wander and take time out.
