We found The Crown Inn on a voucher offer and I have to say, this place is a real find! It's based in the quaint village of Newcastle-on-Clun which was perfect for us to travel to nearby towns and villages. The B&B had fairly recently been taken over by a couple; but I believe it's under new management since we...

The jewel is of course the village of Newcastle set in the stunning Clun Valley with hills all around. The Crown is just quite simply excellent. Richie and Wendy have not long been here but their welcome is just how a local hostelry should be. We are so lucky to have just moved into the village last week and spent...

We stayed here for 2 nights using a Buy a Gift voucher we had been given. The owners had just taken over some 2 weeks previously. As we didn't pay for our stay, I don't know about the value for money side of things, but our room was very clean, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. There wasn't a bath...

Lovely hosts very friendly and welcoming. Set in a peaceful village. Our bedroom was very clean but noise from downstairs can be heard until about 11 o'clock-but then it is a pub. We stayed for 2 nights, breakfast was good. Had a meal on one night also very good. Food served very hot & plenty of choice for veggies! Can't...

We stayed at the Crown for a two night break in perfect autumn weather. We were made very welcome by Ritchie and Wendy who had just taken over the management, and re-opened the bar- the beer was excellent. Our room was clean, fresh and comfortable and the breakfast delicious. We ate in and thought the menu was good with plenty...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights last week and were made to feel very welcome by Wendy and Ritchie. We dined in on both evenings.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my husband so we could enjoy some great walks in the area. Stayed in room 2 which was huge and very clean. Breakfast was delicious. Ate out in the evenings although they do serve meals at the Crown. Definitely stay again if in the area.

Me and my partner had a 2 night stay at the Crown Inn on the second week of September. We're very keen walkers which is why we chose the area and we was not disappointed.

Stayed for 2 nights this week, found it a rather disappointing experience as when we booked earlier in the year, this was after reading the wonderful reviews about Debby and her team, plus Sean the chef who produced excellent freshly cooked food. From beginning of September the Crown has new owners and Debbie and her team, including the chef, are...
