This beautifully restored water mill in the Shropshire village of Clun retains much of its rustic, industrial charm, with exposed beams, stripped timber floors and old machinery still in place, giving the hostel plenty of character.

This rural retreat is now a great base for visitors on walking and cycling holidays, looking to explore the unspoilt landscape, hill forts, castles and picturesque market towns nearby.

Meet the team

Manager recommends: Don't miss the original mill workings that have been beautifully preserved throughout the hostel - take a mini tour and discover how everything used to work. Just sit back and enjoy the peace and quiet in the heart of the Welsh Marches, or get out and explore the nearby hill forts and castles as part of your walking or cycling break.
