Period town house
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Our old town house is a 'home from home' for the many guests that stay here. Recent refurbishments, which enhance the historic features, are to a high and comfortable standard.
Behind the house is a charming enclosed secluded garden; a lovely sun trap. The house is located in a historic, conservation area of Ludlow, beneath the only surviving town gate and just 5 minutes walk to the town centre and castle.
Ludlow is a delightful market town described as an architectural gem with a lively community feel. As a renowned foodie town it hosts numerous food festivals and events throughout the year as well as an annual summer arts festival, and a Christmas medieval fair. There are lovely shops to explore and a large selection of pubs and restuarants close to the house to suit all tastes.
Being centrally situated, Ludlow is ideally located to explore the Welsh Marches, an area of unforgettable and varied natural beauty, which is full of hills, valleys, castles and characterful villages and towns.

The Heart of England/Peak District
Being centrally situated, Ludlow is ideally located to explore the Welsh Marches, an area of unforgettable and varied natural beauty, which is full of hills, valleys, castles and character full villages and towns.
The area is ideal for walking, cycling, horseriding and visiting old historic houses. The historic towns of Shrewsbury and Hereford with its cathedral are well worth visiting.
The Iron Bridge Gorge, with its many historic sites has much to offer. The Welsh border with the famous Offas Dyke is only 15 miles away.
Ludow castle is a well preserved monument to the town’s former prominence in the Welsh Marches and forms the back drop to most of the festivals held throughout the year. (http://www.ludlow-shropshire.com/index.php).
This includes the famous food festival in September, a medieval Christmas fare in November and an summer festival (June/July). National trust properties close by include Croft Castle and Berrington Hall. The English Heritage’s Stokesay Castle is well worth a visit.
In nearby Mortimer forest there is horse riding and for the more adventurous mountain biking. There are numerous places to walk either from the house or further afield. The Long Mynd at Church Stretton is one of our favourites.
Other attractions include the Discovery Centre at Craven Arms and Acton Scott Working Farm where you can experience daily life on an upland farm at the turn of the century as seen on the BBC2 programme 'Victorian Farm'

"Excellent accomodation , well presented and comfortable"
Quiet weekend away with friends in a house that could not have been better. Clean, warm , superb beds, everything fort a perfect stay. Location is at the lower end of town so there's an up hill walk to the town centre so not for the infirm of wind or limb without a car. Other than that a perfect stay away location, lots to see and do.

"Lovely house and perfect location"
We are five friends who go away for a husband/children free long week-end every year. Our choice in June this year was Ludlow and we were lucky enough to pick this delightful property to rent. The house itself is like the Tardis in that it looks small from the outside but easily and comfortably accommodated all of us. Very nicely and newly decorated and perfectly situated for exploring the town. Would highly recommend.
