Ludlow 5 miles.
The small village of Culmington stands at the beginning of the Corve Dale Valley, and is close to the historic market town of Ludlow which is situated on the River Teme, amongst the outstanding countryside of the Welsh Marches. Ludlow is the closest main town, and with nearly 500 listed buildings, Ludlow's medieval street pattern remains almost intact, and provides a fascinating backdrop for the town's regular street markets, held in the shadow of the castle and showcasing a range of goods. Ludlow is renowned for its shopping, with a number of antique, art and craft shops, and has more Michelin-starred restaurants than anywhere outside of London, as well as numerous tea-shops, pubs and inns. The castle is over 900 years old, and contains fascinating examples of architecture while below it, the Linney Riverside Park offers boats for hire, a putting green and children's play area. Within easy reach of Church Stretton, Much Wenlock, Shrewsbury and Hereford, as well as popular attractions such as Ironbridge Gorge, Severn Valley Railway, Berrington Hall, Stokesay Castle, Wroxeter Roman City and beautiful Cardingmill Valley, Ludlow, with the surrounding area, is a superb destination for a relaxing break.
