|Welcome to Lower Buckton Country House Accommodation
At Lower Buckton, a late Georgian country house situated in a tiny hamlet just above the meandering River Teme, you will find Henry and Carolyn the most friendly, hospitable and helpful hosts. Spacious, comfortable bedrooms and sitting room provide guests with a relaxing base from which to enjoy this special corner of England. There is an emphasis on good food and Carolyn is an accomplished and renowned cook. The large private dining room can seat up to 20 guests for dinner and lunch parties.
Secluded gardens with South facing terrace and lawns sweep down to a millstream providing quiet and peaceful spots for daydreaming or for the more energetic and competitive try croquet, clock golf and badminton on the veranda lawn. Fly fish for trout on the river beyond then sizzle your catch on the barbecue, cool your wine in the brook and enjoy!
There is free use of housedog, Hamish, for walks and talks. Also if you bring your own horse there is stabling and grazing with resident horses, Jasper and Ayesha - please ask for details.
Lower Buckton is open to guests all year round including Christmas and New Year. It is the ideal venue for house-party gatherings with family and friends for celebrations and receptions. We can provide meeting and conference facilities or a pavilion on the lawn could really make the party swing.
Lower Buckton offers many ways to spend lazy days -
Gateway to some of the most tranquil, beautiful and unspoilt country in England and Wales. Unlimited access to Forestry Commission land including Mortimer Forest and other woodlands with networks of public footpaths and bridleways for walking, riding and cycling. Dramatic parts of Offa's Dyke and the Mortimer Trail with panoramic views of mid Wales, Shropshire and Herefordshire.
Castle hunting from the romantic ruins of Clun to the mediaeval splendours of Stokesay is a must. Or spend a day steeple chasing from the tiny Heath Chapel set in a field to cathedral like St Laurence's Church in Ludlow. A wealth of private, N T and English Heritage stately houses and gardens awaits a visit. Go giddy climbing a spiral stair or lose yourself in a clematis maze.
Discover and explore ancient border towns with cobbled streets and gabled houses steeped in history. Shop 'till you drop and maybe commission some art in glass or go potty and buy a garden urn from leading artists at their studios. Follow the Black and White Village Trail and stop for afternoon tea or take the Cider Route for something stronger!
