The standard of the property is excellent, ideally situated for the centre of town. Ludlow is a very interesting and enjoyable historic place and would recommend anyone to visit.

The property had recently been refurbished and it was like staying in a new property. Details and photos on the website were helpful before booking, they were also a true reflection of the property.
