Ludlow

'Ludlow - the perfect historic town ' - John Betjeman

There are almost 500 listed buildings ranging from medieval to vistorian and the imposing Norman castle, once home to Catherine of Aragon, towers above the Teme valley. The market square houses the produce market as well as regular antique, art and craft and book fairs. The local shops offer numerous local produce outlets and Ludlow has been described as a food paradise.

For those not wishing to cook for themselves, there is plenty to choose from including a Michelin-starred restaurant as well as the famous Feathers Pub. There are international options including Thai, Japanase and Indian as well as a myriad of tea shops and pubs.

The annual Arts festival , Food and Craft festivals are great attractions as is a tour up the church tower for wide ranging views of the town. For children a visit to the river offers the opportunity to feed the ducks, have a paddle and let off some steam at the play area down the road. There are also lovely views of the castle from the riverside and a cafe serving takeaway coffee and fabulous cakes. If you fancy lunch this cafe is excellent (The Green Cafe) but very small so you will need to book!

The local Welsh Marches countryside ensure Ludlow is the ideal location for a relaxing stay with easy access to Hereford, Shrewsbury, Ironbridge and Church Stretton as well as the attractions of the Severn Valley Railway and the West Midlands Safari Park.

"A great place to rest, relax and have fun"

The Manor House is a fantastic place for holiday with family. There was something for all to do and the golf provided hours of fun for 10 yearolds to 60 yearolds. The accommodation was superb and there was plenty of room for all of our party to have their own space, the teenagers particularly like the wi-fi for laptops and i-pads. The grounds are beautiful and are perfect for relaxing on sunny days.

"Wonderful house and gardens"

We spend a wonderful week in the Ludlow Manor House. The house was very comfortable with plenty of room for our party of six adults and two children and we were warmly welcomed by the house manager, Emma and her husband. The well equipped kitchen meant we were able to take full advantage of Ludlow's fantastic food shops (the local Mortimer Forest venison is highly recommended!). But what really made the house so special for us was the outside space - beautifully maintained gardens, a well equipped play area for the kids and an addictive little golf course that persuaded even the total beginners in our party to swing a golf club.
