News & Offers
Broughton Bunkhouse, near Bishop’s Castle is a beautiful old 17th century barn and the ideal place from which to experience Shropshire.
Broughton Bunkhouse, near Bishop’s Castle certainly fits my mental image of what Shropshire is like. With its 17th century heritage, wooden exterior and thick beamed ceiling, it is charming, rural, relaxed. You could choose to meander through picturesque Clun or Bishop’s Castle or go further afield and explore the history and foody-ness of Ludlow. There is, of course, the stunning countryside typified by The Long Mynd to walk or cycle through. And Broughton Bunkhouse would a perfect place to base yourself as an individual, a family or as a group. But remember that the British summertime brings a certain sort of madness: festivals, fairs and foolishness. Have a look at the local events and you’ll see what I mean. My favourite is the British Stone Skimming Championships.
Ancient character buildings and a friendly welcome.
In addition to their 17th Century bunkhouse, sleeping 12, Broughton Farm also provides friendly Bed & Breakfast in their 15th Century farmhouse. Full of character and charm the buildings are set in the tranquil Shropshire Hills with stunning views. Perfect for walkers, families and those who just want to get away from it all. You can also visit the Lower Broughton Farm Trail, a four mile walk with excellent views of the Shropshire Hills and the uplands of Mid Wales.
Together these hill make up the largest area of heathland in the Shropshire Hills. Come to Broughton Bunkhouse in late summer when the hilltops are a sea of purple.
Visually, these two ‘hills’ are very different – the Long Mynd is a large and long plateau, while the Stiperstones ridge has rugged outline. Along with the heather a variety of other plants flourish here including bilberry (known locally as whinberry), and this in turn attracts many insects and birds.
