Sleepers is our South Shropshire holiday home bought as a new build in 2000. Located on the edge of Bucknell, a small village on the Welsh border, in beautiful countryside 15 minutes from the Welsh town of Knighton and 20 minutes from Ludlow. Fantastically situated for walking and great off-road biking routes nearby. Two village pubs, a small shop and Bucknell Station within walking distance. The house is warm, homely and comfortable and we love spending relaxing time there with our family.

The space
The house is on a quiet road overlooking trees and fields to the front and the small village school grounds and farmland to the rear. Although quiet and remote there is a large supermarket, banks, chemists etc in Knighton, 15 minutes away as well as the Offa's Dyke centre. Ludlow, 20 minutes away, has fantastic restaurants, a small market, a great castle, Tesco, Aldi and many other facilities. Church Stretton, Hereford, Shrewsbury and mid Wales are all easily accessible from Bucknell. We have produced a guide with further details and postcodes which will be emailed to you before your visit. Loads of OS maps and information leaflets available too.
The main bedroom has a double bed and en-suite shower room, with a single in the 2nd bedroom and a bunk bed with a double at the bottom and single on top in the 3rd bedroom. We have recently installed a shower in the main bathroom too.
Being a relatively new build the house is very warm and comfortable, the heating (when cold) and hot water will be turned on ready for your visit.
All beds will be made and towels are provided, we charge a £40 cleaning fee which also covers the changing and washing of the sheets by our cleaners.
There is a travel cot and high chair available although as there are manyornaments/candles/displays that are 'grabable' the house may not be suitable for 'grabber' toddlers!
We have a Sky box which offers free to view channels, Wifi speed is 27Mb + and there is an internet radio/bluetooth speaker in the dining area. Patio furniture is stored in the garage.
The house is very close to Bucknell Railway Station on the Heart of Wales line, which runs behind us, although the service is extremely limited.

Guest access
The whole house is available to guests including the outside space and the garage where bikes etc. can be stored.

Other things to note
The drive has room for one car, if bringing two cars parking on the front lawn or the garage is available.

During your stay
We live in Kent so unable to personally welcome guests although happy to use Skype if you'd like a more personal interaction. Access is via keys kept in a keysafe outside the property, the password will be provided following a booking. We are available via phone 24/7 and use Bucknell based cleaners, plumbers, electricians etc. if and when needed. There is a security camera on the front of the house which I use to check on length of the grass/bins/etc. It streams only, no recordings are made.
