This beautifully restored water mill was once the focal point in the tiny town of Clun and still has much of the old machinery in place. It’s now used as a base for walkers and cyclists to explore the unspoilt landscape and picturesque market towns nearby. There’s a generous helping of history too, with hill forts and castles ready to be explored.

Campers enjoy a separate campers' annex containing a self-catering kitchen complete with cooker, fridge, freezer, washing up facilities and cooking equipment, perfect for families and friends. The annex also has a toilet and shower as well as a drying and laundry room for drying those muddy boot after a hard days walking.
