Stone studio bothy with hot tub set in 43 acres, on working sheep farm on the Welsh borders. Idyllic spot to relax, enjoy activities and discover the best countryside and culture in Powys.

Small but perfectly formed, this cosy, detached stone bothy lies just 8.5 miles from Knighton in the heart of the Shropshire countryside. Set in 43 idyllic acres on a working sheep farm, this romantic and quirky property welcomes up to two people and one four-legged friend. Located in a Shropshire Wildlife Trust-designated Local Wildlife Site, there are endless options for walkies right on the bothy’s doorstep. The area is also a paradise for biking, horse riding, fishing and birdwatching. Featuring a private outdoor hot tub that boasts uninterrupted country views, this is a great spot to enjoy some quality me-time with your hound, or to chill out with a loved one.

One of two holiday cottages on the farm, this converted bothy offers compact and cosy studio-style accommodation. Clever design features include exposed beams, fresh and stylish décor. Out the front door, the private hot tub is waiting for you, as well as a BBQ and patio table for al fresco dining.

Take your pup for a lovely walk beside the dramatic riverside ruins of Clun Castle (8 miles) or head a little further afield to explore the quaint town of Ludlow (24.5 miles). Stop at the dog-friendly Rose and Crown pub for a pint at the fireside. The deeds to this historic building date back to 1102, making it one of England’s grand old public houses.
