The picturesque village of Bucknell nestles in the beautiful Teme Valley in the unspoilt countryside of South Shropshire on the border with Herefordshire and Wales, just 12 miles outside Ludlow.  The river from its source forms the border, not only between Shropshire, Herefordshire and Powys, but also England and Wales. Ludlow, the premier town of the Marches, is a perfect historic town with its large ruined castle standing high above the River Teme.
