Betjeman's favourite town, Ludlow nestles above the River Teme in rural South Shropshire. Oozing charm and character, it's ideal for lovers of history, walking and food - a unique combination and reason alone to book a Ludlow cottage.
Whether your idea of foodie heaven is a traditional Sunday roast in a wonky-walled pub, a platter of dainty cakes in an elegant tearoom or Michelin-starred feasts dressed up to the nines, Ludlow pulls out all the stops. It also hosts fantastic farmers' markets and the hugely popular Ludlow Marches Food & Drink Festival every September.
Burn off those calories and pull on those boots! Our Ludlow cottages offer wonderful walks right from the door. Enjoy leisurely strolls on Whitcliffe Common or follow the Mortimer Trail - the tourist office has stacks of leaflets on routes. Other pursuits include horse-riding, cycling and fishing, or why not hire a boat from the Linney Riverside Park?
Step back in time along Ludlow's historic streets, lined with over 500 listed buildings, architecturally striking with their black-and-white and Georgian features. Explore the ruins of Ludlow Castle right in the centre of town and enjoy open-air concerts and theatre. Visit St. Laurence's Church and the Ludlow Museum. Or take the short drive to Stokesay Castle or Berrington Hall.
For shopping, our Ludlow cottages score high marks and you'll find lots of lovely specialist shops showcasing jewellery, antiques, crafts and more. There's also a lively street market and medieval Christmas Fayre.
Or book a Ludlow cottage and have a flutter at 'Britain's friendliest racecourse'. Something for everyone!
