Enjoy all the delights of historic Ludlow, with its many restaurants and food fairs, this lively town is perfect any time of year.

Friary Cottage is a Grade II Listed, detached and renovated town cottage. Well-positioned and beautifully presented with some antique furniture, it boasts original, quirky features and is only a 5-minute walk from the centre of the town and a 3-minute walk from Ludlow’s train station. A cosy woodburner and gas fired Aga are amongst the treasures of the house. Guests can also enjoy a private enclosed rear garden, a separate, small walled courtyard, and it is located on one of the most prominent streets of this charming medieval town. Ludlow is overshadowed by its own majestic castle, as it was once, like York, a seat of Government in Tudor and Stuart England. Now hosting the famous food festivals and events throughout the year, there is always a lively atmosphere here. It has a reputation for fine foods, award-winning restaurants, speciality and antique shops and even a racecourse. An excellent base to explore the unrivalled countryside for picnicking and walking or nearby towns such as Bridgnorth and Bewdley (Severn Valley Railway), Ironbridge, Much Wenlock, Church Stretton, Tenbury Wells and Leominster. The cathedral city of Hereford with its chained library and Mappa Mundi are all within a short drive, as are historic houses such as Witley Court, Berrington Hall, Croft Castle, Stokesay Castle and Powis Castle on the Welsh borders. Acton Scott, an historic working farm and the Secret Hills Discovery Centre are all just a few of the nearby attractions, so you will never be short of something to see. Supermarkets 50 yards, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

    Second stay and once again couldn't fault Friary Cottage. We loved our trips out during the day, exploring Shropshire and the surrounding counties, but it was a real pleasure coming back of an evening as it felt like home from home. Owners Louise and Mark couldn't be more welcoming with the cottage extremely well appointed and just minutes away from the town centre. All in all a great week's holiday.

    Beautiful cottage and garden, loads of character together with modern bathrooms and appliances.lovely secure garden ideal for our dog. The only downside was car has to be parked away from the house and there isn’t any side entrance for the garden.

    We received a really warm welcome from the owner and enjoyed an amazing week in the cottage. The cottage had everything we needed (and more), was warm, cosy and very peaceful despite being in the town. We can’t wait to visit again!

    Beautifully restored cottage with many interesting features. Every item you could need has been supplied for a real 'home from home' holiday. The owners are friendly and helpful and the location is great for a break in an historic rural town. The best we've stayed in and we've already re-booked.

    If I was to choose my dream home, Friary Cottage would be it!! It's SO lovely I could happily live there. I have been visiting Ludlow for several years now and have always used the same cottage, but they changed the furnishings to a very modern and so uncomfortable style, that we were not relaxed anymore. I therefore had to find alternative accommodation. Well, did I strike it lucky. The owner was so very helpful and accommodating. There were flower arrangements everywhere which I love. It made us feel so welcome, Grade II listed (I'm a sucker for architecture) I really couldn't have wished for better. I was so taken with it, I have only been back a day and already planning my next visit. I want to book early to save disappointment, as I'm sure they have no problem letting it. Thank you very much for a memorable holiday.

    Friary Cottage is a very warm and cosy property in an ideal location for our needs, across the road from supermarkets and the station, in the town centre so easily walkable to all the facilities of the town and the river. Beds were supremely comfortable and the house is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and more. An old property which has been renovated with all modern amenities inside, alongside some beautiful antique furniture. The owner Louise was extremely welcoming and even took me around town in her car to familiarise me with everything and to point out where the best parking was, pubs etc. Louise offered the use of her private parking space in the town centre, although we did not need to use it as there is cheap and plentiful parking just a couple of minutes walk away.

    Beautiful large cottage in the middle of historic and charming Ludlow. A very comfortable, cosy cottage which the owners have recently renovated to a very high standard. Absolutely lovely. The owners go the extra mile to ensure your stay is everything you hoped for. Highly recommended.

    A delightful -if somewhat quirky - cottage with convenient access to the delights - architectural and otherwise - of Ludlow. The cottage is delightfully furnished, pleasant small garden, no immediate parking but parking space available nearby. The one downside was from traffic noise which is somewhat inevitable for such a central position- perhaps we particularly noticed it as we live in a very quiet neighbourhood.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Friary Cottage and the very warm welcome from the Painters. The safe, enclosed garden was a bonus for my two grandchildren. Fresh flowers everywhere and comfortable beds made it a real "home from home".
