About the location

BUCKNELL

Knighton 5 miles; Clun 6 miles; Ludlow 13 miles.

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.

Nestled in the beautiful South Shropshire valley of the River Teme is the pretty village of Bucknell, complete with two village pubs – both of which serve food. Close to the borders of Wales and Herefordshire, quiet, peaceful village is set in a lovely area of beautiful, unspoiled countryside – ideal for ramblers and hill walkers. The historic market town of Ludlow is close by and is well renowned for the superb quality of its restaurants. Ironbridge provides a wealth of museums whilst the historic town of Shrewsbury is also within easy driving distance. Local towns of Craven Arms and Knighton offer a full range of amenities. Stopping in the village is the Heart of Wales Railway, taking visitors through beautiful, hillside scenery and to the south are the quaint, wood-beamed cottages and cider orchards of North Herefordshire.
