Ludlow, Shropshire, England
A charming 17th century Grade 2 townhouse in the heart of Ludlow's old town, a few minutes from the wonderful 11th century castle and wealth of shops, market, pubs and restaurants.

Situated on three floors the property is full of character with exposed beams, wooden floors, an inglenook fireplace and wood burner. The award winning courtyard area is perfect for enjoying that glass of wine or dining alfresco.

Sorry, we have a no pets policy.

Ludlow is a superb base all year round for exploring one of Britain's most beautiful towns and the surrounding area, which includes Stokesay Castle, the Shropshire Hills, the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge and visits to Shrewsbury and Hereford.

Interaction with guests
I hope to meet you and welcome you to the house and Ludlow. This means I can give advice on parking, the best places to visit, a potted history of the town, but if I’m not available your keys will be in the key safe outside the kitchen door. We will be contactable by phone during your stay and endeavour to sort out any problems as quickly as possible. There is a folder in the house which has suggestions of things to do. All the local OS Explorer maps for the area are provided for you to borrow.

Stokesay Castle is a beautiful place to visit. 15 miles away are the Shropshire Hills including Long Mynd and the Stiperstones. This is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and amazing geology. There are some National Trust properties nearby including Berrington Hall.
The Ironbridge Gorge Museums are an hour's drive to the north and provide a fascinating insight into Victorian industry, housing, education and society.
Ludlow Races attract a big following.

Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Birmingham International : 66.0 km
Railway: Ludlow: 1.0 km
Ludlow is bypassed by the A49 which goes from Hereford to Shrewsbury. You need to leave the bypass and follow signs for the town centre. Do not follow your Satnav, it will take you down the narrowest streets imaginable. Go to the end of Castle Square and then turn left.
Parking is an issue. Ludlow was not designed for the motor car.
There is on street car parking near the property at £2.20 for 3 hours (8am-6pm, seven days a week) if you can get a space. There are car parks, the nearest one is Smithfield’s car park on Lower Galdeford. It costs £2 per day and £1 on Sundays. From here it is a 400 metre walk back to the house. Beware, traffic wardens are enthusiastic.
Ludlow is on the railway line from Cardiff to Manchester. From London you can travel from Euston to Crewe and go south...
