The Experience

A beautiful listed 1600s Dutch brick house with the famous Crow Leasow Oak (over a thousand years old) gracing the garden and a cockerel strutting about with his hens; there’s much history here and Sally will be happy to tell you all about it over tea. If you’re a group you may get to stay in for supper too – good English cooking from great ingredients and masses of vegetables.

Sally likes to make people happy, so breakfast is a convivial affair around a big table: eggs from her hens, sourdough bread baked by a friend, homemade compote, bacon and sausages from the butcher in Ludlow, Peruvian coffee, homemade marmalade and jams. She’ll make you a picnic and pack it up in a basket too.

Head out for the wonderful, untrammelled Shropshire Hills, an AONB with many footpaths. Wild swim in rivers, watch salmon leaping in spring and visit castles and churches. Ludlow is three miles (bring or hire bikes) for food markets and independent shops. Return to peaceful bedrooms with gorgeous views.

Reviews

What a find! We had 5 lovely nights there ,booked at the last minute. Wonderful welcome. Breakfast in the garden. Excellent evening dinner. Best of luck with all your plans

Richard & Gail, Leeds

We arrived a bit fractious and frazzled after weeks of lockdown and a long drive and were instantly charmed by the delights of Crow Leasow and it’s hosts. Expansive views, luxurious green tranquil valley, fascinating building were all as hoped for. But it was Sally’s warm welcome, friendly pets, delicious food and delightful decor that did so much to restore us. We have relied on Sawday’s for 20 years and never been disappointed, but this is a real gem. Porridge not to be missed!

Rebecca, Milton Keynes

What a wonderful place for a break. We did not want to travel far so, just a 30min drive from home, we found this little piece of paradise. We could have been 1000 miles away because the difference was wonderful. The views from our bedroom windows were breathtaking and the peace was overwhelming. Sally and Robin made our stay feel as if we were visiting longstanding friends. The house is beautiful and so cosy. The bedrooms are light and airy and tastefully decorated. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt thoroughly spoiled. Great care taken to make us feel comfortable at this point in time-

Maggie, Bridgnorth

What a gem! We wanted a rest, and this is the perfect place, views all round the house, peace and quiet. The 3 dogs, Boot, Bob and Bertie and cat Puss really add to the warm welcome from Sally and Robin. With wonderful scenery and empty roads Shropshire is a truly lovely county. Just to sit in the huge garden and read, surrounded by snoozing animals is bliss!! The house is great, separate lounge and dining room for guests, and the 4 poster bedroom is immense, with great views from every window. An amble across the meadow leads to the lovely brook, and lots of footpaths to follow too. Thank you

Dorothy, Hockley

We can't mention Ludlow in our house anymore as our 2 year old expects us to immediately get in the car for a trip to Sally's farm stay. We were extremely fortunate to be the only guests at Sally's place for the weekend. We felt pampered with Sally taking care of an early evening meal for our daughter and dinner for the two of us as well as an extremely filling breakfast for all of us. The only decision we had to make was where to travel to during the day. Sally's three dogs and one cat were very gentle with our toddler and she loved picking eggs with Sally for our breakfast.

Gav, Perth

What a find. Sally welcomed us with lovely homemade scones. We opted to have dinner which was well worth it. Our room, The Red Room was excellent, so quiet with a fantastic comfy bed. After a really good night’s sleep, Puss the cat welcomed us as to went downstairs to breakfast. Again Sally excelled at a hearty breakfast with freshly laid eggs from her hens. I shouldn’t forget to mention Robin who certainly keeps the home fires burning literally! Great team work from both Robin and Sally.

Julia, Abergavenny

After a long drive we were hoping for something special and that's what we got. Driving up to the house we had a look of excitement and happiness on our faces. A wonderful warm welcome from Sally and her family (including the dogs & cat) and from the moment we walked into the house it felt like home. We would totally recommend Crow Leasow it's Magical. Thank you

.Karen, Suffolk

An extraordinary experience, in which you feel you have arrived home. The house is on a quiet country road, and set back from the road with beautiful views. The warm fires and tasteful decor will win you over...but it is how you are welcomed into the family that will bring you back. A great stay, not to be missed and I will be back.

Simone, Rio Vista, California, USA

What a wonderful place and a wonderful family! We had a lovely stay here with Sally, Robin and their son Ed who was home for the weekend. The place is everything you expect, cosy, comfortable and instantly you feel at home. Sally's cooking is amazing and they will do anything for you. We had the misfortune of "car trouble" during our stay and they supported us in every way, staying in to cook us a meal as we couldn't get out and then taking us all the way to Hereford to get home. We honestly would have been stuck without them. I wish I could write more, we cant wait to return, thank you x

Marc and Mandy, Abertillery

"Crow Leasow is delightful: beautiful house, fluffy towels, nice toiletries and super comfy bed. The location is ideal: 10 mins from Ludlow, immerse in glorious countryside. It's just off a B-Road, but we didn't hear a single car. The food is scrumptious. But what's truly special is Sally, with her husband and very friendly 3 dogs. They are welcoming, warm and incredibly attentive. My toddler daughter liked a teddy bear in the dining room. Soon after, it magically appeared in her bed. Last year we stayed at Sally's previous B&B (Wickton Court). We’re already planning our next visit...

Marta, Bristol

Outstanding B&B. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. We received a very warm welcome to this beautiful and fascinating house, with a cream tea with homemade scones straight from the oven, on our arrival. The room was extremely comfortable with an enormous bed and crisp bed linen. There are many interesting artefacts around the house which Sally has collected and displayed imaginatively, and the peaceful surround is dominated by the magnificent old oak tree at the front of the building. Breakfasts were delicious and nothing was too much trouble to ensure that we had a really lovely stay.

Location

The neighbourhood

You're surrounded by green fields, hills, woods and rivers; from the doorstep the views are stunning. Climb Clee Hill and you'll see the Malvern Hills; join the Shropshire Way; walking and cycling routes are abundant here. The river Teme meanders along nearby and has lovely walks along its banks; Ledwyche Brook is an attractive place for a picnic. There are lots of good pubs and restaurants a five-minute drive away in and around Ludlow.

Local points of interest from Sally Kellard

  • Walk, run, cycle or just sit and look. Stroll down over ancient sheep pastures to the little river. Paddle in the shallows, picnic on the bank or hike up the imposing Titterstone Clee. Sit under the boughs of a 1000 year old oak tree with tea and scones.
  • Mediaeval Ludlow. A beautiful bustling town with its massive castle, host to many festivals. Great places to eat, drink and shop. Sally had her very popular shop in the middle for a little under 10 years before starting in the business of hospitality!
  • With a jockey in the family and a National hunt yard as a near neighbour, a visit to Ludlow Races, a 10 minute drive away will result in great interest in your day when you return for a hearty warming supper next to the woodburner!
  • South Shropshire, the mid Wales border and Herefordshire, our neighbours are such well kept secrets. More than a fair share of castles and other ancient fortresses. We are an area of very low population. Traffic jams? What is one of those?
  • When renovations to our Victorian stables are finished, complete with old saddlery racks & fireplace in the tack room, bring your horses & ponies. We're in the middle of Ludlow Country! Sally is about to start carriage driving instruction.
  • One of Robin’s passions is motorsport and as a past rally champ we often host teams competing around the area. We seem to breed a lot of rally stars locally, probably due to the forest stages quite nearby. There is a rally school a short drive from us.

Introducing

Sally Kellard

Sally and Robin ran a B&B in Herefordshire before returning to their beloved Ludlow. She’d spent 12 years in the corporate world of pharmaceuticals but left to follow a dream of being her own boss; she then ran her own clothes shops and her motto is always to “treat people with respect and look after their dignity and self-esteem”. She loves sharing their home in this fabulous part of the world.
