It was back in 1995, when I was sitting on my bed, browsing the 'Farmhouse accommodation' in various books and magazines, when I came across a delightful advert.
We knew that we wanted a peaceful break somewhere in England and suddenly Shropshire
was showing itself off, right in front of my nose.
Shropshire, that lovely county which I think can be , so often, overlooked.
It's a beautiful county with so much to offer and this fabulous farmhouse certainly
seemed to suit our needs.
Thus began a lasting friendship with a little place called Clun and a couple called Mary and Hugh.
Stay on a farm and you know you will get the best breakfast!
Cos the wife of a farmer can cook!
None of your fancy stuff...good old fashioned, honest food!
Good old fashioned English breakfasts!!
And Mary cooks the best breakfast.
We knew that we'd found a real gem in Llanhedric Farm and an even bigger gem in
That was 1995.
Still the same, wonderful service; the same smiling Mary and the quietly spoken Hugh.
In 2008, we decided that we would revisit and we felt like long lost relatives as we were greeted and treated to a lovely stay and were even invited on the
Clun coach trip to Chester!!!
And so fast forward to 2010....
I think that Mary was surprised to see us back so soon!
The truth is that we love the place!
And so would you!
If you fancy a stay on a farm and you also fancy Shropshire...don't even bother to look any further as this is the place to stay!
The tears were in my eyes as we left to come home on Sunday.
Mr S put his arm around me but then I thought, 'How silly you are Sal, you'll be back!!'
Clun is the most delightful little place!
Wander around and you will see that everyone takes a pride in their property.
And the Sun is always shining, even when the day comes to an end.
And so Llanhedric Farm, just outside Clun, was to be our home, our base for a few nights as we
plotted and planned our gallivanting around the Shropshire countryside.
And what a time we had!
Back soon with more to share with you...
Ludlow here we come!!
