    Well located to explore Shropshire. Perfect for escaping the busy modern world. No mobile phone signal and minimal internet connection. Very welcoming host with some nice touches (food essentials, bottle of wine all complementary). Great for recharging the batteries.

    We booked a last minute break for thenEaster weekend. The roost was well equipped, clean and had everything we needed. Julie was so welcoming and the welcome pack was brilliant we even had hot cross buns. We did some amazing local walks with the dog and as the property is close to Ludlow we had some lovely pub meals out. Would definitely return if visiting the area again.

    The Roost was very comfortable and ideally located. The owners were on hand but not obtrusive. The cottage was very clean, the bed very comfortable and all the resources worked. There was a lack of dishwasher, oven apart from a combination microwave and adequate clothes drying . In fairness, you are aware of all this prior to arrival. You get what you pay for and on this basis I can thoroughly recommend the roost.

    Had an enjoyable stay at the Roost, very clean comfortable with everything we required. Lovely welcome back scones, jam, cream, bread, butter and milk as well as a bottle of red wine. What more could you ask for, very thoughtful of Julie. Parking a little tight at times, we drive an estate car. The only let down was the weather 😂

    A well-located one bed cottage next to the owner's property, The Roost has everything for a comfortable self-catering holiday. The en suite shower room is small but everything worked properly. The owners provided a generous starter pack for the kitchen. Ludlow, a couple of miles down the road has supermarkets and restaurants aplenty. There is some noise from a busy A road about 100 yards away and an occasional express train passes through but both are out of sight. The cottage overlooks the owners' lovely garden, complete with dogs and cats.
