2 bed cottage with private courtyard in the historic centre of Ludlow
Delightful cottage in the middle of town
By any standards, this is a delightful property right in the middle of quintessentially English Ludlow, close to the town's many historical buildings and pubs. The cottage is most tastefully decorated and appointed and comes with all the mod cons. Like all the other guests, we really appreciated the welcome pack and the attention to detail which the owners have given to this property.
I would recommend this property to anyone!

Nice & Cosy
Mock Tree Barns Holiday Cottage - 3 nights stay in the Weavers Cottage. Clean, Comfortable, in short, all we required!

Ludlow Manor House
A relaxed holiday with a bit of class.
Yes, once again we had a super family holiday, enjoyed by all generations at The Manor House. Having roots in Shropshire, it is always nice to return and there is no better place we have found, than this lovely country let near Ludlow. The facilities and space suits us all very well, although we will need more golf balls next visit. This super property allows you to relax, if you wish, or have fun, if you wish, because it gives you the space to do so. This classy let suits us well.
A comment would not be complete without a thanks to the lovely manager, Emma who was always on hand should we need her help. …

16th century cottage in a quiet, central location in Ludlow, with a sunny garden
We booked last minute due to being let down by our original booking. We are so glad we were let down. Stephanie couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating. The property is a gem, a perfect mix of old charm and modern facilities, very recently refurbished. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly need, including lovely comfy beds and fluffy towels.
Ludlow itself is a lovely charming town. Loved the market, the shops and the old pubs. Full of character. Something for everyone.
All in all a perfect weekend away. If you’re considering booking, do it, you won’t be disappointed. …
Church House Barn Ludlow
Relaxing Break in a stunning barn!
We were 4 friends visiting Ludlow for the Food Festival and were delighted to have found Church House Barn for 3 nights. The barn is extremely comfortable, very well equipped, beautifully decorated and Chris, the owner, was friendly and prompt in responding to any queries we had prior to our arrival. The location is tranquil and we all felt very relaxed - to the extent we'd booked a restaurant in Ludlow for one evening but cancelled and chose to stay in instead! We can thoroughly recommend Church House Barn and would love to return. …
