Ludlow

Ludlow is one of England’s most lovely towns, packed with historical buildings, set upon a cliff top location overlooking the River Teme.

Described by Sir John Betjeman as ‘the loveliest town in England’, Ludlow lives up to its billing with some 500 or so listed buildings, including many half-timbered and from the Georgian period. In fact 900 years of history are evident here going back to Norman times.

Ludlow Castle was constructed in the 11th century and has a fascinating past that has played a significant role in England’s history; today it’s the venue for open air theatre and festivals. Ludlow museum depicts the rich history of Ludlow, where you''ll come face-to-face with tales of Bronze Age farmers and famous geologists. Other places of note are St Laurence''s Church and the Feathers Hotel, with its world-famous timber facade.

There is lots of excellent walking and cycling opportunities right on the doorstep of your cottage, with walks leading out to forests and farmland, and the Shropshire Hills are only a short drive away.

If you fancy enjoying the great outdoors at a more relaxed pace though, head to Whitcliffe Common or Gallows Bank. The short walks and open expanses will appeal to everyone and offer a great free day out for the whole family.

A food lover''s paradise, Ludlow boasts some of the finest restaurants in Britain. The area is awash with quality food and drink producers and you''ll find a wide variety of establishments serving up quality, locally sourced food; from corner cafés to Michelin star restaurants.

    Set on a working farm, this detached stone barn is located just 6 miles from historic Ludlow and lies on the edge of the village of Stoke St Milborough, which nestles between the Clee Hill and the Brown Clee Hills in south Shropshire, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Stoke Court farm Barn is decorated and furnished to a high standard, whilst retaining many original features including beams and stable walls. It offers beautiful family accommodation with additional facilities for disabled guests, and makes an excellent holiday base for exploring the local area.
    The 200-acre farm is a working beef and sheep farm, and within the grounds of the holiday barn is a newly discovered 17th-century formal garden with its prospect viewing mound. There is also a Sensory Garden to stimulate sound, sight, touch and smell. The latter has been developed in association with DEFRA.
    Nearby, historic Ludlow provides a wealth of interest for any visitor. John Betjeman described it as ‘the loveliest town in England’. Country Life also paid tribute, calling it ‘the most vibrant small town in the country’. It has lively markets, food fairs and speciality shops. There are many Michelin restaurants and Ludlow has rightly become known as the gastronomic capital of Shropshire. The Ludlow Marches Food and Drink Festival is held every September. The town boasts over 500 listed buildings, mostly Georgian or half-timbered houses as well as a castle, once the home of kings, now a centre for festivals, events and open-air theatre performances.
    An unusual day out can be enjoyed at the Secret Hills Discovery Centre, which traces the geological history of the Shropshire Hills, and is housed in an unusual turf-roofed building designed to echo the hill forts found in the surrounding countryside. A simulated hot air balloon flight over the Wrekin in the north to the Stiperstones in the south forms the central attraction of the Centre.
