Six bedrooms/three bathrooms and ground floor shower. Accommodates 12 guests comfortably.
Sunny drawing room is hung with family portraits, squishy sofas, and a log-burner with double aspect windows. The huge dining room has a wine fridge and 15' long oak table with chairs to seat 14. Open log fire, sparkling chandelier, silverware, and shiny glasses set scene for fine dining.
A farmhouse-style kitchen with four oven AGA, separate gas hob/electric double oven range cooker, two fridges, freezer, two dishwashers, double Belfast sink, wooden central prep table, beech work surfaces, and all usual gadgetry, pots, and pans to create delicious meals from local produce and serve it on English bone china.
Shop local at indie producers, farm shops, and markets in the immediate area. The back kitchen has a sink, washing machine, tumbler drier, fridge, WC & shower.
The gardens have a trampoline, swings, croquet, and millstream.  Walks in every direction from the gate including a circular river walk to Leintwardine for a local shop and two pubs.  So well placed for exploring Herefordshire's market towns, mountains of Wales, and just ten miles west of luscious Ludlow.  Castles, churches, gardens, historic houses, fetes, festivals, food, and drink - take your pick and explore.  Small weddings and parties, or any excuse for a break.

Caring For The Planet

Our ethos is re-purpose, reuse, recycle.  All food waste goes to dog, cats, hens, horses and compost heap with any residue to friend's bio-digester. Nothing's ever "wasted". We grow our own vegetables and our local Leintwardine butcher has slaughterhouse at rear of shop for true locally produced meat from small-scale farmers. The village shop supplies an amazing selection of groceries and household requirements - please leave your supermarket food at home and embrace our local indie traders. We are a supermarket-free zone.  Think "locally sought, caught, bought" thus supporting our local community and economy.

Lower Buckton Country House Recommends

Ruined castles are our secret weapon!  Stroll down the back lane for glimpses of Brampton Bryan Castle, sacked in the Civil War.  Pull on your walking boots and trek over to Wigmore Castle.  Jump in the car for country lane trip to Hopton Castle, another Civil War victim!
