Mocktree Barns, Leintwardine, Ludlow, Shropshire

Mocktree Barns, Leintwardine, Ludlow, Shropshire

Mocktree Barns are 5 delightful holiday cottages, set around a south facing courtyard. Our accommodation is on the Shropshire/Herefordshire border at Leintwardine, just 7 miles from Ludlow. 

Mocktree Barns are an ideal base for exploring the delightful countryside of South Shropshire, Herefordshire and mid-Wales, one of the few ‘Tranquil Areas’ left in England. Working farmland is all around, with easy access for walking provided by a network of public footpaths. 

Whatever the season, there is plenty to do. There are great opportunities for walkers and nature-lovers, for anglers and bird watchers, for golfers and geologists. Public rights-of-way are there for you to walk through the woods and fields, explore the quiet valleys and lanes and climb to the top of the hills to marvel at the view. Nearby are Wenlock Edge, the Long Mynd, Clee Hill, the Teme Valley, Mortimer Forest and Offa’s Dyke Path. Border castles are in abundance – notably Stokesay, Clun, Powis and Ludlow – and there are several National Trust properties within a short drive. The village of Leintwardine, once a Roman settlement, is only two miles away with an annual coracle regatta.

There is much to discover in the nearby towns – Church Stretton, Bishop’s Castle, Much Wenlock, Tenbury Wells, Leominster, Knighton and, above all, Ludlow. (For John Betjeman this was England’s loveliest small town.) Antiques and crafts, teashops and bookshops abound and there are many attractive villages in the area, including those linked by the Black and White Trail, a drive though the Herefordshire cider country.
