Welcome to our Granary holiday accommodation!

Our Granary holiday accommodation is situated in a secluded position in the village of Clunton at the heart of the Clun Valley and has been awarded a 'Visit Britain' 3 Star rating.

Clunton boasts a village owned pub offering real ale and home cooked food within walking distance of our accommation.

We encourage walkers, cyclists and riders or those who simply want a retreat away from city life to come and visit. We are convieniently sited for Ludlow, famous for its historic Castle and Michelin starred restaurants. We are also just a drive away from Powys Castle, David Austin Roses and the Severn Valley Railway.

The Long Mynd & Offa's Dyke offer great walking and along with Bury Ditches Hill Fort and Clunton Coppice Nature Reserve form just some of the circular walks on offer from our doorstep.

Being in the middle of a bird watching site recommended in 'Where to watch birds in the West Midlands', this is a bird watchers paradise. The Granary itself is home to Swifts, while Swallows and House Martins nest in our barns.

The Granary looks out over our fields which are home to two ponies, two donkies and six sheep. We also have several ducks who offer fresh eggs for breakfast, Chivers our big barn cat and three dogs complete the 'farm'.

History

Clunton Farm House and Granary dates from around 1600 and was a working farm up until about 1970. The Granary was also used as an 'up market' boutique in the 1960s.

When we arrived in 1999 we planned to use the Granary as holiday lets and to this end we started the conversion in March 2003. Both floors were completely gutted and then renovated to finally provide two self-contained apartments.
