Location description from owner
The England region
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'

“Wonderful place to stay”
We are visiting from the US and this house is the first part of a two month stay in the UK. If all of our houses are as nice as this one, we will have a wonderful stay. Everything about this house is perfect. There was never a thing we looked for and didn't find. The house is just at the bottom of the hill. What can I say about the town? All of the people were so friendly and, of course, the food was wonderful. We were sorry to leave it!
“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.
“Excellent home in a lovely location - I will be back”
A lovely comfy property, extremely well maintained, decorated and equipped. An ideal base for touring the area and for having a break in a very nice town. Loads of local amenities within walking distance. A brilliant sunny garden ideal for sitting out in for meals and drinks. All in all an ideal holiday home. I repeat - I will be back.
“lovely cottage very well equipped and perfectly situated”
Very nice holiday cottage which was extremely well equipped. As a family of four adults we stayed here over the Christmas period. It is in an ideal location for exploring Ludlow and the surrounding area, only a couple of minutes walk to local shops etc.
An excellent holiday house - well maintained and comfortable and equipped with everything one needs for a break. The property was large enough to lose my two teenagers in and would cope with 6 adults very comfortably. The property has an outstanding location - only 5 minutes walk from the very centre of Ludlow but also well placed to travel out of town if you want to. Booking was easy and everything was in place when we arrived - the owners even contacted us before hand to tell us of a minor housekeeping issue (fully resolved before we even got there).
“Fabulous relaxing break in a beautiful peaceful town”
I very much enjoyed my stay in this beautiful house in a very central place in Ludlow. It had everything we needed in terms of kitchen equipment, guidebooks, information leaflets etc. Beautifully decorated and very peaceful. Lovely large double bedrooms and easy access to lovely shops, market, castle and bars and restaurants. I would recommend this place as a peaceful haven and good base to explore Shropshire.
“Ludlow townhouse - a great base to explore one of the best market towns in England”
I rented the property, on Lower Broad Street, in Ludlow for the weekend of the Ludlow summer festival (11th / 12th May 2012). The group was 6 adults (3 couples) - My wife and i are from Birmingham and we know Ludlow well, having been coming to the food festival for the last 7 or so years and having eaten in a number of Ludlow's Michelin starred restaurants (Of which only Mr Underhills remains.....) The property is full of character and was very clean. The rooms were well proportioned, although the smaller single room was a bit of a squeeze for the couple who had this room (with the futon in addition to the bed). The en suite master bedroom was fantastic and I had one of the best nights sleep I have had in a long time on the Saturday night. The large top floor bedroom commands fantastic views. The kitchen is small, but well stocked with the right utensils for cooking a full english (The vast majority of which was purchased in one of Ludlows butchers). The property retains a number of period features which really add to the atmosphere. Location wise the property is 2 minutes walk to town, up a steep hill, or about a minute down to the River Teme and the Charlton Arms hotel for a nice pint! The only downside is parking, with the parking permit being for a carpark a good five minutes walk away - however, despite this I would definitely book again. In fact I have already asked the owner pencil me in for both the spring festival (May) and the Food festival (September) for next year. The price was also terrific value at £180 for the two nights (£60 per couple) - however, i'd happily pay £180 for two nights if it was just me, my wife and the children. Wi-Fi would be a nice to have but not essential.......i can go without the internet.....honest......
