Clun, Shropshire, England
'Heaven for two' - The cottage enjoys enviable views of the valley and the rolling Shropshire hills. The fully restored property nestles in 20 acres of woods and wonderful walks on the hillside high above the historic village of Clun. Located in the first 'environmentally sensitive area' and designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. The countryside commission recent survey designated this to be one of the three remaining havens of tranquility in Britain.

The cottage is spacious and comfortable with hall, cloakroom, utility, large sitting room, bedroom with giant double or two single beds, dressing area. There is a large bathroom with separate power shower and fully fitted kitchen. It has a south facing sheltered terrace area with picnic table, oak bench and sun bathing easy chairs.

Interaction with guests
Whenever possible I personally welcome all guests. I like to explain to them what they can expect from the cottage and from me. If they prefer a hands-off approach I can simply hand them the keys and give all the information they are likely to need. However I do find many guests wish to make use of my being close by when if required I can be available to suggest things to do, or provide detailed information on the cottage and the locality.

We stayed at the Dick Turpin cottage last week for 3 nights. The accommodation exceeded our expectations. The owner Roger was very helpful and provided a lovely hamper. It was a delight to stay in such a charming, cosy place, situated in a beautiful location, with amazing views. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this place. Thank you, we had a...

Over the past 30 years, my wife and I have stayed in some 100 self catering cottages throughout Europe and the UK. We have made it a rule never to stay in the same place twice. So, why have we just returned from our 5th stay in Dick Turpin? , you might ask. Quite simply it is the best and...

Management response:

I am blown away by your very kind comments, you obviously realised just how much I enjoy welcoming "regulars" back to the cottage, especially when it has been a year or more since your last visit. The Dick Turpin Cottage does seem to have some special magic which I think starts with its wonderful location in one of the most...

This was the first time I've stayed at Dick Turpin Cottage, but it definitely won't be my last! Everything about it was just perfect, and the attention to detail was second-to-none. Beautiful fresh flowers, champagne in the fridge, lovely biscuits, a great selection of magazines and other reading material and (best of all) an extremely comfortable bed. I had two...
