Country House Accommodation & Private Dining for "Any Excuse" to take a break.

Welcome to Lower Buckton Country House.

A special place to stay in Mortimer Country on the north Herefordshire/south Shropshire borders where England meets Wales.

~ Self-catering and Bed and Breakfast ~ Shepherd’s Hut ~

The pretty hamlet of Buckton is an ancient settlement with origins from Roman times and there’s a historic corn-mill whose stream is recorded in the Domesday Book. Even now, it’s still just a few houses and cottages clustered above the water meadows of the meandering river Teme.

Lower Buckton was once the principal farm in this early settlement and today is the home to Henry and Carolyn Chesshire. Their friendly hospitality welcomes guests off the beaten track to this truly, quiet and uniquely tranquil corner of the Welsh Marches where they offer award-winning breakfasts, deeply comfortable beds and delicious dinners – a rural retreat with a difference.

Arrive in time for afternoon tea and cake, relax in the drawing room in front of the fire, rest in the cosy bedrooms and eat delicious food around the hand-made oak table in the dining room.

New for 2019 – we are working together with a local company and can now offer a hot tub
