Kibble Mill Cottage
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Kibble Mill is a delightful character cottage, furnished with a hint of 'yesteryear' and set in glorious countryside just 7 miles from historic Ludlow. You'll be fascinated by the interesting stories that many of the vintage pieces have to tell of love and laughter from a bygone age.
The cottage is ideal for a couple and has a galleried bedroom with a double bed and ensuite shower and toilet. The lounge / dining room has a television with DVD - one little concession - and the cottage is centrally heated. The kitchen area is fully equipped with an electric cooker,fridge and microwave.
This is a stone built cottage with attractive exposed stonework and beams. Our taller guests should take care with the low beam in the bedroom, but there is no height restriction downstairs. There are books, games and jigsaws to keep you amused as well as a wealth of information about the local area. We live close by and are always available to help with any questions you may have.
Outside there is a large herbaceaous border with many 'cottage garden' flowers. It is particularly delightful in springtime with a host of daffodils.
Kibble Mill provides a comfortable base for a relaxing break in this fabulous part of the country. There are walks from the door through farmland and woods in all directions as well as excellent places to eat and drink at the end of the day catering for all tastes
For guests in this cottage we offer a voucher for complimentary tea and cake which is redeemable at The Rocke Cottage Vintage Tea Rooms just a short drive away.

In the centre of the town is the castle with a history going back to the Middle Ages. Ludlow is a food lovers paradise with excellent pubs and restaurants.

"Very relaxing away from the rat race"
On the 14th Dec 12 my wife Kate and I arrived at Kibble Mill Mock Tree Barns For Xmas and the new year, and what a delightful place it is our host Clive and Cynthia Prior are very friendly helpful, and make you very welcome. Kibble Mill cottage is full of character with its beams furniture and fixtures its like stepping back in time, however it has all the modern facilities that blend in to this lovely cottage, hot shower ( on-suite) flat screen TV Wifi ,and a fully equipped kitchen to name a few.
The cottage is pet freindly ( we had both our cat and dog with us) the car park is just outside the cottage , the surrounding countryside is breathtaking on Xmas day we walked through the woods and bridle paths to the local pub the Jolly Frog then back home for a very cosy Xmas dinner, Kibble Mill is a must for a couple who want to get away for some quality time together, We found it very sad to leave so we moved and bought a house in th local area !!
