Local Towns

knighton.jpgOur nearest towns are Knighton and Newtown. Knighton is a pretty market town; the only town to be built on the 1200 year old Offa's Dyke and where you'll find the Offa's Dyke Heritage Centre, our local tourist information centre which has an interactive exhibition that allows visitors to explore the Offa's Dyke. The town lies in the beautiful Teme Valley, cushioned by the green hills of Powys and Shropshire.

The overall feeling is one of rural tranquility and a slower pace of life than you might find in other parts of the country. The wooded hills, rivers and streams, and pasture land with the occasional cornfield or two, offer marvellous opportunities for visitors to enjoy the outdoors. The road to Newtown is spectacular, taking you past the source of the River Teme, and as you drive over the top you will more than likely see Welsh mountain ponies on the hill.  

Ludlow.jpgA little further afield you will find Clun, a rural gem in the South Shropshire Hills lying in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty close to the border with Wales in what is termed the Middle Welsh Marches. The thriving market town  Ludlow with its famous castle and its reputation as a centre forsome of Britain's best food and drink is not far away.
