About The Clive

The Clive is an award-winning restaurant with rooms offering upscale bed and breakfast accommodation at a lovingly-adapted 18th century farmhouse and converted barns on a working country estate beside the A49 near Ludlow in beautiful south Shropshire.

Bright rooms boasting original exposed beams and high ceilings feature en suite bathrooms with premium toiletries, hairdryers, flat-screen TVs and minibars. Spacious suites and upgrade rooms are available as are family and accessible rooms.

Amenities include gardens, free Wi-Fi throughout, free parking, tearooms and a gourmet farm shop.

There’s a free cooked breakfast and the cosy bar serves cask ales and light meals. The elegant restaurant provides seasonal dishes, vegetarian and children’s menus plus Sunday lunches.
