Bed & Breakfast
Come and stay in a peaceful and idyllic location among the rolling hills of the south Shropshire countryside.
Bush Farm is situated in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' bordered by Clunton Copice a nature reserve designated as a 'Site of Special Scientific Interest.
The area is a fantastic spot for walkers, riders and birdwatchers with Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Goldfinches, Siskins and nuthatches along with the more common Great Tits, Blue Tits and Sparrows. Kingfishers fly and fish the river regularly along with Herons and Mergansers. Buzzards nest in a large tree in the bottom field and Red Kites fly effortlessly over the farm daily.
The river Clun meanders past the garden and on through the fields and has plenty of Trout and Grayling and spawning Salmon at various times of the year. It is also home to Otters, which we have been lucky enough to have seen on a number of occasions usually at dusk. Guests are welcome to fish as long as it has been prearranged with us.
The 15 acres that Bush Farm is set in is home to horses, very tame free range chickens, ducks and geese, goats, Miniature Donkeys, Kune Kune pigs and sheep along with 2 very friendly Labradors. We do assisted or full livery for up to 4 horses and offer people the chance to bring their horse on holiday with them and ride the many bridleways on our doorstep.
Sit and relax in the garden or wander by the river and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
You can be sure of a warm welcome, great food and a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.
