Lindsey & Debbie would like to welcome you to their family owned 17th Century Country Inn, with Bed & Breakfast accommodation, serving Real Ales & Excellent Home Cooked Fayre, full of Character & Charm, with Great Atmosphere & Real Log Fires.

shropsh-crownbarThe Crown is situated in the picturesque Clun Valley, approximately 3 miles west of the historic town of Clun, nestled amidst the rolling Shropshire Hills, in an "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty". It's location makes it an ideal base for people who enjoy walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing, golfing or visiting the historic towns & attractions found in and around the Shropshire Hills, the Welsh border & beyond...

Walking opportunities are in abundance in the area, long distance walks such as Offas Dyke, the Shropshire Way, Glyndwr's Way, Jack Mytton Way and the Kerry Ridgeway as well as many short walks are on the doorstep, or within easy driving distance are the Longmynd & the Stiperstones. If you wish to travel a little further, Snowdonia or the Brecon Beacons could be just the ticket.

Newcastle is located at the midpoint on the "Offa's Dyke Path", making it a great place to stop for an overnight stay, especially as it breaks up the gruelling 15 mile "Knighton to Brompton" section known as the 'Switchbacks'. This section is generally reckoned to be the most spectacular but toughest part of the trail as there are a large number of steep rises and falls as the path winds through the beautiful Shropshire Hills, however the views and sense of tranquillity make the effort well worthwhile.

Shropshire is a cyclist's paradise and is a great way of soaking up the unspoilt landscapes along the quiet country roads and lanes. There is something for all, from the novice pedal pusher to the experienced cyclist. Walkers and Cyclists are made very welcome at the Crown, we offer a lockable bike store, with a water point for washing bicycles, boots and outdoor clothing, as well as clothes drying facilities.

If you enjoy Horse Riding then the Shropshire Hills have a lot to offer, there are a number of bridle paths in the area including the "Blue Remembered Hills" & "Jack Mytton Way", so why not bring your horse with you to come and explore the area, we can arrange safe overnight grazing at a nearby farm, for a small fee.

Day trips to the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, Ludlow Castle, the Severn Valley Railway or the Ironbridge Gorge Museums, are just a few of the 90+ attractions in the area, or if the sun's shining, why not take a drive further afield and head to the coast to visit one of the many well known popular Mid Wales seaside resorts.

shrops-corwnbedrFor people looking to relax and get away from it all, then why not use us as a peaceful getaway retreat, come & chill out whilst enjoying the stunning scenery along with the relative peace and quiet!!! The definition of a "Rocking Nightlife" in these parts consists of gazing at the night skies looking out for the occasional shooting star or bat performing aerobatic manoeuvres in the moonlight, whilst listening to the distance sounds of bleating sheep or hooting owls.
