The Squire Farm
The Squire Farm is a small farm in the secluded, peaceful surroundings of the Redlake Valley in the southwest corner of Shropshire, near to the Welsh border.
The farmhouse, barns and the two, dog friendly holiday cottages are surrounded by twenty-five acres of woodland and pasture grazed by sheep and horses. There are also chickens, dogs and cats.
A stream below the buildings meanders through some ancient woodland and the River Redlake runs along the northern boundary. The approach is by a private farm track, which ensures complete peace, privacy and safety.
The Squire Farm is about half a mile from the hamlet of Chapel Lawn where there is a village hall and a church. Bucknell (3 miles) and Clun (5 miles) have shops, post offices, a choice of pubs and there is a railway station at Bucknell. The nearest town of Knighton, (6 miles) is an appealing Welsh market town and can supply most of one’s needs. The very attractive town of Ludlow is about 15 miles east where you will find some highly acclaimed restaurants.
For walkers, riders and cyclists and dog walkers there are plenty of footpaths and bridleways including Offa’s Dyke and a mountain biking trail within 3 miles and for those interested in archaeology, Squire Farm sits at the bottom of Caer Caradoc, an ancient hill fort. Squire Farm is an ideal base from which to explore the many castles and historically important border sites or the numerous gardens and country houses.
