About
Surrounded by stunning views of the rolling Shropshire Hills, the Baron at Bucknell is one of the finest Country Inns in Shropshire and only 20 minutes from the picturesque market town of Ludlow, and 10 minutes away from the small medieval welsh town of Knighton. Dine in sumptuous comfort with our delicious home cooked food, local real ales and the warmest welcome in Shropshire. Relax and unwind in our friendly atmosphere. Our fantastic team of staff make the Baron one of the best hotels in the area; customers frequently tell us it’s a home from home where nothing is too much trouble. We have 8 luxury bedrooms. The 5 rooms in the inn are individually styled and equipped to a very high standard.
