Winner of Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, 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 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. In the evening sit out and gaze out at the beautiful star studded skies.

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, table football 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.

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. For the family there is a nearby playing fields, playbarn, cycles for hire, paintballing and archery and plenty more.

The Shropshire region

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.

Here's a suggested itinerary of what you and the kids could enjoy on a 4 day break in the summer holidays (now available for just £1195!!)

Monday

Settle in, explore the House and Gardens and enjoy a freshly made coffee and homemade cake and a yummy hamper of locally made goodies. Then after lunch pop down to the local town of Clun (either in the car down the lanes or by taking a walk over the fields). Here the kids can play at being Knights & princesses around the Castle ruins before enjoying an ice-cream by the river and a paddle with the ducks.

Tuesday

Visit the Acton Scott Historical Working Farm (as seen on BBC 'Victorian Farm') to enjoy a step back in time to how rural England used to be. Have some food at the café or take a short drive up to the top of the Long Mynd and enjoy a picnic in this beautiful area Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Wednesday

Have a morning relaxing in the Gardens at Llanhedric House, whilst the kids play on the swings or enjoy a game of hide and seek in the vastness of the House and Gardens. Or gather everyone together for a game of cricket, badminton or croquet. Then take a short drive to Bishops Castle where you can pick up some fresh local produce to grill on the BBQ later. While you're there take the kids for a splash around in the swimming pool or enjoy a glass of cold local beer in the Castle Hotel whilst the kids have fun playing in the large beer gardens.

Thursday

Take a trip into the nearby pretty market town of Ludlow where you can explore the towers of the magnificent 11th Century Castle and sample the foods from the local produce market. Then travel a bit further and treat the kids (and yourself) to a trip around Cadburys World - where everyone can feel like @Charlie in The Chocolate Factory' for the day.

Clun

Local towns

Clun

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

Bishops Castle

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!

Ludlow

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

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.

Events

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:

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.

Cycling

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.
