The
Experience

Solar panels on the roof, logs in the basket, eco soaps by the bath and a feather duvet: all is tickety-boo and beautifully thought out. The friendly owners live on site, there if you need them but otherwise discreet. The cottage complements their own red-brick home, on the other side of the beech hedge. Step in to find a compact open-plan living space with a wood-burner in the corner, a mix of old and new (daybed, armchair, dining table), glazed doors opening to a patio (nice and secluded), and a spiral metal stair to the bed on the mezzanine. There’s a glass balustrade so you see below, and robes provided for a flit downstairs, to a bathroom with a shining bath and a hand-held shower, and a washing machine hidden in the cupboard. Most couples come to explore Ludlow, a popular market town at any time of year (medieval fair in November, food festivals in spring and autumn) and this peaceful street is a ten-minute walk from the centre. Treat yourself to Michelin stars, explore the 10th-century castle, discover the Shropshire Hills – you are surrounded by lush countryside.

Reviews

It was a perfect winter ‘get away’ for us in December. Ludlow was splendid in its festive Christmas mode. We explored the castle and the market and the wild hills of Shropshire too. The cottage was a very comfortable base and we loved the design and styling of the building and looked forward to returning each day. We already look forward to a 2018 visit for a Summer escape to The Ludlow Holiday Cottage and gorgeous Shropshire.

Frans, Worcester

Wonderful well designed and fitted out. Everything you could wish for. We enjoyed Ludlow's foodie delights.

Anthony

A really excellent small 'cottage', very interesting layout and every facility elegantly provided. Although quite central in the town the cottage and its little garden are really private. The home grown and local produce provided by the owners are an extra treat. We don't have a car and the situation of the cottage is ideal to make the most of Ludlow's good public transport links (train & bus) to enjoy walking on Offa's Dyke, the Long Mynd etc. And Ludlow itself is the perfect small town!

John

An excellent relaxing break in such a lovely cottage for two; so beautifully appointed and a bed so comfy you don't want to get out of it! Such a handy spot as well for leaving the car and just walking into town. We spent evenings on the private patio enjoying a drink before dinner and chilling out. Just the place to stay if you want to explore Ludlow itself and handy as well to get on the main roads to explore other parts of Shropshire. Lots of info in the cottage to help you make the most of your stay. Thank you!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Frances & Marc Soubeyran

  • Ludlow, a market town quintessentially English, host to the famed “Food Festival”, in the heart of the marches, a joy to visit at any time of the year, easy to reach by car or train.
  • Take a tour of 11C Ludlow Castle and seek out St Laurence’s church – climb the tower. Both give spectacular views: the River Teme, the town’s rooftops and the distant hills in every direction.
  • The vibrant market is a near daily event, in Castle Square and celebrated local produce is everywhere. Enjoy the abundance of independent shops, Michelin starred restaurants, tearooms, bakeries, butchers, all make shopping and dining a pleasure.
  • Explore the beautiful unspoilt surrounding countryside by walking or cycling. The Long Mynd, Brown Clee, Mortimer Forest and Corvedale, just the names hint at how special they all are.
  • Discover nearby historic houses and gardens including, Stokesay Castle, Croft Castle and Berrington Hall. For garden lovers, enjoy the unique ‘Bryans Ground’ near Presteigne, a visit takes you over the border into gorgeous Powys.
  • Ludlow a foodie paradise. Gentle strolling around the town’s original medieval streets, shopping for food, coffee at Dinham Weir or tea in Broad Street. Vintage or artisan, beer, bread or beef. It truly deserves the accolade ‘the loveliest town in England'
