“A great venue for a family Christmas”

Reviewed 1 Jan 2019

The Manor House was ideal for the three generations of our family to celebrate Christmas together. The house has ample very comfortable accommodation giving plenty of space for all ages to enjoy themselves and the well equipped kitchen and large dining room were great for this festive occasion. On arrival we found that the house had been meticulously prepared and decorated for Christmas and we were warmly greeted by Emma who couldn't have been more helpful. The children enjoyed using the zip wire, trampoline and other attractions in the play area and we had some fabulous country walks. Ludlow has the second largest parish church in the land and we were given a very warm welcome there for the Christmas Eve Christingle Service. We look forward to a return visit.

Owner's reply: Thank you for such kind words so pleased you enjoyed yourselves. Do come again.

“A relaxed holiday with a bit of class.”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2018

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.

Owner's reply: Classy let and a classy review thank you

“A truely amazing place for a family celebration”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2017

We stayed at the Manor House to celebrate my partners 60th Birthday and had the entire close family along to help with festivities. The party had a wide spread range of ages from 9 months to 61 years old and all of us without exception had a truely great and memorable experience by fully utilising the facilities on offer in the immaculate grounds and stunning house. The Manor House is a magical place where memories are made. Thanks go to Emma & Chris for attending to our every need without ever being intrusive. The Jessop's.

Owner's reply: Thank you for a truly amazing review! SO pleased you all enjoyed yourselves and belated birthday wishes.

“Wonderful return visit”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2017

Great to come back to the Manor House, such a great venue for a large family vacation. The two living rooms provide space for everyone, the wifi is good enough for our voracious needs and the outside golf course and tennis court stop us from vegetating too much. Emma does a marvellous job on house keeping- despite the size , the property is immaculate. All the little touches like enough loo roll for the week and an extremely large bottle of prosecco make this house so special. The only downside is that this place is so good that it's spoilt us for other property rentals which are not as spacious, don't have the same amenities and just aren't as good.

Owner's reply: So glad to see you all again enjoying the Manor House - do keep coming!

“Amazing House”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2017

We stayed at the Manor House for a long weekend to celebrate my husband's 50th Birthday. Large family group including children, aunts, uncles and grandparents. The house is beautiful and the facilities are wonderful. The children loved the adventure playground and the whole family played golf, tennis and table tennis. The weather was lovely and we were able to be make the most of the fantastic gardens and outdoor dining areas. The interior of the house is just superb! Lots of space for a large group, furnished to a high standard and the beds were so comfortable. Nearby Ludlow is a beautiful town to visit with a lovely market and plenty of shops and cafes. The family had such a fantastic holiday and can't wait to return.

Owner's reply: Happy belated birthday and we look forward to seeing you all again soon. Thanks for the lovely review.

“A great place to rest, relax and have fun”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2011

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”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2011

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.
