About Elaine Lynch

I'm Elaine and together with my husband Mark we adapted, what was once my family home, into a House that was going to be perfect for large groups to get together under one roof.

Whilst off on maternity leave and at home with my two small children I opened Llanhedric House as Self Catering Accommodation in December 2012.

Part of what I love about having Llanhedric House is that I get to meet so many different people from all over the country and beyond. I try to be as accommodating as I can so that organising and booking it is easy, the House has everything you might need and that you have a great time and leave with some very special memories.

Elaine Lynch purchased this house in 2012

Why Elaine Lynch chose Clun

Llanhedric House overlooks the stunning Clun Valley. With curvaceous fields, meandering streams and castle ruins all in one eye shot, it doesn't get any better.

When the sun is shining and the only sounds are the sheep in the nearby fields or children laughing and running around the gardens you'll understand why this is such a special place

Whether you enjoy good food and great walks, visiting local markets and ancient castles or hang-gliding and paint balling there's something for everyone in this wonderfully unspoilt county.

What makes this house unique

At Llanhedric House you can all sleep under one roof.

Inside of this magnificent 17th century house is feeling a space and enormity, yet it manages to maintain a homely and cosy ambience.

There's plenty of social areas for you all to enjoy time together, yet room for grownups to enjoy time alone and kids to have the best ever game of 'hide and seek'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were a family group of 17 over 3 generations from different locations in the UK and Canada. The perfect house in the perfect location. The owner was there to greet us with coffee, hamper and a log fire burning beautifully in the lounge, it was so cosy. The facilities were great and the pool table, table tennis, table football and darts kept many of the party amused for hours. There was plenty of rooms and space for everyone and we never felt to crowded. This was our first time as a family sharing a large house for a weekend and everthing was just what we hoped for and we would certainly do it again.

Perfect for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house for a family reunion of 7 adults and 6 young children. It's set in the beautiful countryside and is a great house with plenty to keep adults and children entertained - pool table, ping pong and a shed with toys/ games for the garden. Homely and sociable kitchen with sofa. We did a nice walk from the house down country lanes and public footpath to nearby village with pubs and castle. Would definitely stay again, thankyou.
