House | 7 bedrooms | sleeps 15
Llanhedric House is a perfect venue for large parties of friends and family to get together for a celebration or reunion, or for groups of walkers or cyclists to enjoy the unspoilt views and the rolling hills of the wonderful South Shropshire countryside.
On a dark winters night cosy up by one of the wood burner fires and gaze out at the beautiful star studded skies. Why not use the binoculars provided to see if you can find the Milky Way, get closer to the Moon or spot far away planets like Jupiter.
Enjoy a banquet in the rustic dining room with its large bespoke oak table, log burning fire and French doors leading out to the patio and gardens and relax and unwind in the characteristic oak beamed sitting room by a warm inglenook fire.
There is plenty of fun for the kids (and big kids) too. The games room includes a pool table, flat screen TV and sound system as well as plenty of board games, and the garage is perfect for some friendly competition with its table tennis and darts board.
Enjoy a hot cup tea and some home made cakes in the kitchen that's full of character with its rustic table and Rayburn cooker. If you feel like having a break from cooking let someone else do the work by utilising our in house catering services which can include a three course evening meal and freshly prepared pre-made meals for your arrival or during your stay.
Whilst staying at Llanhedric you can indulge in a peaceful nights sleep in one of the seven elegantly decorated bedrooms. Each room is uniquely charming with beautiful wooden furniture, stylish linen and comfortable, relaxing beds.
On a warm summer's day why not enjoy the tranquillity of the beautiful Clun valley by relaxing in the hammock with fresh local produce on the BBQ, while the kids explore the large gardens, enjoy the children's play area (which includes swings and slide) or play a game of croquet, badminton or Jenga on the lawn.
Nearby is the picturesque village of Clun and the medieval town of Ludlow, a lively and unspoilt market town with great spirit and an excellent reputation for food and drink.
If you want to get out onto the fields, the Shropshire Way goes directly past Llanhedric House and the Offas Dyke Trial is just a stones throw away, or enjoy a day out at nearby sites such as The Long Mynd, Ironbridge World Heritage site or Acton Scott Museum.

The Heart of England/Peak District
If you love unspoilt countryside, visiting historic towns, experiencing a sense of the past, enjoy good food, exercise and entertainment, then Shropshire is for you.
First time visitors are always amazed at just how much there is to see and do in the county! Key attractions include the Severn Valley Railway, the RAF Museum, at Cosford and the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site. Visit the remains of Roman Cities, Medieval Castles, Ancient Churches and much more.
Surrounded by an amphitheatre of hills, this very ancient town nestles cozily on the banks of the river. At its heart is a narrow, medieval stone bridge and the atmospheric ruins of a Norman castle which rise above the town "...one of the quietest places under the sun" A E Houseman
The shops in the town are a delight in their individuality - the majority are locally owned and managed and this makes for a very special visit. The town has 2 banks, a post office and 3 grocery stores. Add to that a wonderful deli, several interesting cafes and 6 pubs . . . not to mention the 2 breweries!
Described by Betjemin as .."the most perfect town in England"
Ludlow and its castle are perched on a cliff above the picturesque River Teme in South Shropshire: the town breathes history at every turn. The town centre's ordered elegance is evidence of the 900 year old Norman planned town. Ludlow is a lively and unspoilt market town with great spirit and an excellent reputation for food and drink. It also hosts great festivals and lots of events all year round.
Shrewsbury's most famous son, Charles Darwin (born in Shrewsbury) would still recognise the black & white timber buildings of his home town. Explore Shrewsbury's picturesque cobbled alleys and squares, wander down to Shrewsbury's Quarry Park and simply watch the world go by while enjoying a drink by the river, or relax on a river boat cruise from Victoria Quay.
There are festivals, carnivals, fairs, shows and exhibitions throughout South Shropshire all year round, they'll always be something to suit your taste. Here are a few local events to wet your appetite:
- Ludlow Food Festival
- The Green Man, Clun
- The Bishop's Real Ale festival
- Shrewsbury Regatta
- Ludlow Jazz Festival
- Shrewsbury Flower Show
- V Festival Weston Park
- Ludlow Medieval Christmas Fayre
Places to visit
- Acton Scott Historic Working Farm. As shown on the recent BBC program 'Victorian Farm'.
- Long Mynd. Picnic on the moor - keep an eye out for the grouse and wild horse! Or for the more adventurous why not try paragliding?
- Ironbridge. One of Britain's great World Heritage Sites
- Powys Castle & Garden. A 12th Century Castle and home to the finest collection of paintings and furniture in Wales.
Amblers & Ramblers
Shropshire and the surrounding countryside is a haven for walkers and ramblers, whether its a gentle stroll in the countryside enjoying the quiet calmness and natural wildlife or taking in a challenging walk across the hills.

It's great to get out and about on a bike in Shropshire. Discover hundreds of miles of National Cycle Network routes along quiet lanes, explore traffic-free trails along old railways and waterways, follow the cycle rides from historic towns and get muddy on mountain bike tracks in woods and forests.
Within walking distance is an outdoor pursuits organisation 'The Great Escape' with provides full or half day activities for adults and children including raft building and paintballing.
