This secluded, semi-detached barn conversion adjoins the owner's 17th century home only one mile from Clunton, in the heart of Shropshire's beautiful Clun Valley. Set in a lovely hidden valley, off the beaten track, in a peaceful, rural location in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This superb barn is surrounded by a mix of farmland, hills and glorious woodlands and is set in an area comprising of approximately two acres. It is accessed via its own private entrance at the end of a farm track (please note the farm track is bumpy and may not be suitable for very low vehicles) there are no other properties nearby. King Grove offers a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of life, great for city escapists and those wanting to enjoy the tranquil beauty and nature of the English countryside. King Grove enjoys dark skies with no light pollution, ideal for stargazers. Evenings are filled with the sounds of nature, such as owls, foxes, deer and badgers. Birdlife is abundant and the birdsong in spring is astounding.
The barn retains some of its original character, as well as providing quality, contemporary accommodation throughout. It has a very well equipped modern kitchen with dining table, a spacious, comfortable and tasteful lounge with wood burner. Two good sized double bedrooms and a modern shower room with large shower. The south-facing lawned garden at the front of the property is shared with the owners, it also offers the exclusive use of a sunken, sunny patio which is accessed via steps. There are other seating areas (again accessed via steps) within the grounds for guest's use, perfect for relaxing with a drink and dining alfresco, whilst taking in the views of Stepple Knoll, after an exciting day exploring wonderful Shropshire.
There is a community owned pub in Clunton, which is very welcoming and serves good food and drink. There are excellent walks and cycle paths from the doorstep of this Shropshire property, with Offa's Dyke, the Shropshire Way and Jack Mytton Way close by, making it an idyllic location for walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers.
The enchanting wildlife site of Clunton Coppice is just a short stroll, as is Bury Ditches, an impressive Iron Age earthwork fort from which uninterrupted views can be enjoyed. The owners enjoy walking and cycling the local area themselves and are very pleased to help guests with suggestions. Horse riding is available locally and mountain bike hire can be organised locally too. Bishop's Castle with its excellent real ale pubs and restaurants is close by. Church Stretton, the Long Mynd and Shropshire Hills are to hand (by car). Acton Scott Historical Farm and Stokesay Castle make good local days out, with the renowned medieval towns of Ludlow and Shrewsbury within easy reach (by car). At the end of the day return to King Grove and simply relax in the beautiful surroundings.

Wonderful accommodation in an ideal location

By Richard Plummer on 10-May-2024

King Grove sits in a wonderful garden surrounded by stunning views. The visiting bird life is a joy as is the clear night sky. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay and is well located for great walks from the door step. The whole area is a walkers paradise. The local pub in Clinton, The Crown, does great food and local ales. Thursday Fish & Chip night is not to be missed. Leena and Geoff are the host you would wish to be if you ran such a facility. It is easy to see why so many who stay are repeat visitors.

Our stay couldn’t have been nicer. Luck for us the weather was very good. The cottage was comfortable, well equipped and very peaceful.

King Grove Barn is a beautiful cottage; spacious, extremely comfortable , homely and excellent value for money. Furthermore, the owners Geoff and Leena are the perfect hosts; a lovely and helpful couple but also non- intrusive. We saw some wonderful wildlife, many different birds and the countryside and walking opportunities were fabulous!
