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.

    An excellently equipped comfortable cottage with the added touch of fresh flowers in all rooms. The only downside was parking but only to be expected in a historical town. We had three cars between us and found that we could pay £10 upfront for the week in the lower car park near Tesco's, across the road.

    I booked this cottage on the high recommendations and can fully understand why they are so high. Absolutely loved our stay over the New Year. The welcome was lovely and we were made to feel at home straight away. Louise even took me to show me the best place to park our cars. The cottage is beautiful. Lovely and warm. I spent most of my time in the fabulous kitchen and enjoyed my very first usage of an Aga!! There is everything that you could ever need in the kitchen. The beds are all extremely comfortable with all 6 of us commenting on how fantastic the bedding was! Real good quality and we all slept very well!! The bathrooms are immaculate and very modern with wonderful showers. Location of the property is one of the best we have stayed in over the years. 5 minute walk into the centre of town. Tesco and Aldi across the road. Ludlow Brewery 5 minutes away which I personally recommend a visit and a tour. Dog walking is directly adjacent through the church yard and onto the common. Cross the river and up the bank leads to an amazing view of Ludlow Castle. There is an amazing cafe by the weir too that does a fabulous bacon sandwich!! We loved Ludlow and could not have been happier staying in this wonderful cottage. Thank you Louise for allowing us to share your treasure!!

    We had an absolutely lovely stay at Friary Cottage. We stayed over Christmas, for a week, and really enjoyed exploring Ludlow. The cottage was well equipped, and cooking on the Aga was great fun. Comfy beds, modern bathrooms, good central heating, and it all just works brilliantly. I was worried about lack of parking but the owners let us use a parking space they rent round the corner for a tiny charge, so that made a big difference. For a property of this size, character, charm and comfort it's a total bargain, and we really hope to come back. Thank you!

    It was not our first visit to Friary Cottage, which gives a good indication of our love of it. It is spacious, warm, cosy and SO beautiful. It is like home from home to me. I am of a 'certain' age, so the only slight drawback for me is the walk up the hill into Ludlow itself, but it does get easier the more you do it!! There is a small starter pack provided by Louise (mine host) which is a great help. Across the road there is a Tesco and just a little further an Aldi, not to mention the wonderful markets and shops in Ludlow where you can by everything you need. The history and architecture is second to none, just stroll and submerge yourself in it, and when refreshment is needed, there are lovely cafes and pubs to sate your needs. It is a pilgrimage for us now, we arrive mid December, when all the lights and decorations adorn every shop, cafe, pub, restaurant, it quite 'Dickensian'. I urge you, please go and experience it for yourself, like myself, you will want to keep returning to get your 'fix' of Ludlow.

    Has to be 'one of' if not 'the' best cottage we have stayed in and we have stayed in a lot over the years. As other reviewers have said, what made the stay for us was meeting the owner Louise on our arrival. Louise made us feel very welcome showing us round the cottage, explaining everything and answering our questions. The cottage is grade II listed so is a little quirky but is very well equipped, warm and has a wonderful enclosed garden. Having visited Ludlow before we knew that there is limited parking in the town centre. However, it is possible to load and unload outside Friary Cottage without issue and Louise gave us use of her private parking space which is a short walk from the Cottage. A fabulous and relaxing place to stay.

    Friary cottage is full of character and the owners have provided lots of little touches that really make it a home from home. The kitchen is particularly well equipped and there is a very pretty little garden to relax in. Tesco, Aldi and a local brewery are just across the road and the cottage is within walking distance of the attractive town. We thoroughly enjoyed our break here.

    What a fantastic holiday cottage. Louise and Mark were so charming and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage is full of old world charm and there is plenty of space on both floors to accommodate six adults easily. The kitchen is equipped with every serving dish, utensil and convenience known to man. We were particularly lucky with a heatwave and I loved having breakfast in the inner courtyard. The back garden is very lovely and we spent almost every evening out there, having a BBQ. We were well acquainted with Ludlow but it was nice to see the old haunts again - Dinham Weir, the Castle and Carding Mill Valley. I couldn't think of a better country destination.

    The Friary Cottage was absolutely perfect for us. A quiet, very comfortable home. Everything was just as described and the owner had prepared the most "professional" set of instructions I have ever seen.

    This is a real home from home with everything you could possibly want, excellent location and lots of space for six adults and two dogs. I would happily move in! The only minor complaint we had was not enough drying space for six towels.
