Country house bed and breakfast accommodation off the beaten track on the borders of north Herefordshire and south Shropshire where England meets Wales. Amazing views with peace and quiet yet just ten miles from luscious Ludlow.  The house is in a cute hamlet surrounded by farmland just above the meandering river Teme and there's a circular riverside walk down to the nearest village of Leintwardine just over a mile away which has a village shop, butcher and the world-famous Sun Inn!

Country lanes in three directions from the door to explore by cycle, foot or horse.  There are maps of many trails following old Roman roads, historic drovers' routes and twisty lanes for visiting pretty churches, verdant gardens, quaint market towns and villages, castles, country houses and with a hostelry or tea-room along the way as well!

There are three wonderful bedrooms, two with hugely-deep cast iron baths and one with powerful shower plus delicious body wash made locally from organic essential oils.  Crisp linen and feather-down quilts and pillows on deeply comfortable beds will soothe you into restful nights' sleeps.

The award-winning breakfasts and delicious dinners are all from local, seasonal produce much of it from the garden and surrounding farms.  Everything else is locally sought, bought and caught from small-scale independent producers and suppliers.  Lower Buckton is a super-market-free zone!

Lower Buckton's on the End to End route and is the perfect place for a bit of rest and recuperation - why not stop a couple of nights?

We also have a delightful Shepherd's Hut down by the millstream beside the horses' paddocks which is all kitted out for Glamping Holidays with a difference.  The Hut has a five foot wide double bed with sheeps' wool Baavet, vintage rugs and pure cotton covers for cosy nights and a wood-burning stove for heating/kettle boiling.  Outside there are a fire-pit with tripod and cooking-pot, undercover BBQ area,lots of pots and pans, covered outdoor shower, wood-powered hot-bath-tub, composting privy and a tipi.  All you need for some camping without the hassle or simply wander up to the house and book breakfasts and dinners there!

Stay in Lower Buckton or the Millstream Camp, either way you'll find hospitallity and helpfulness from your hosts, Henry and Carolyn Chesshire
