Description from manager

The picturesque village of Bucknell has a train station served by The Heart of Wales Railway and to the south are the traditional cider orchards and black and white villages of North Herefordshire.Swallow Cottage is a magnificent barn conversion on the outskirts of Bucknell village. This superb semi-detached stone built property is one of four 18th century Grade II listed barn conversions, set in an attractive courtyard in a picturesque rural location, just two miles from the village. Swallow Cottage features an array of original features including oak beams and trusses, wall timbers and some exposed stone walls. Swallow Cottage provides high-quality accommodation, including en-suite facilities, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It's a stunning holiday retreat within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is the perfect base for walking, cycling, bird watching and exploring the fantastic countryside of Shropshire and Mid Wales.

Electric oven & hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, WiFi, 2 x TVs with Freeview, DVD, CD player, shared use of payphone, small library of games/DVDs/CDs.

Region: A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.

Town: Nestling in the beautiful River Teme Valley in South Shropshire, Bucknell offers two pubs, which both serve food and within easy reach are the market towns of Craven Arms and Knighton with their excellent amenities for visitors. This is a charming area of unspoiled, tranquil countryside, close to the borders of Wales and Herefordshire, which offers many interesting pursuits and attractions. The notable market town of Ludlow with its fine restaurants, the famous museums of Ironbridge and the thriving county town of Shrewsbury are all a short drive away.
