  • “As a single, not too agile, traveller the Coach House ground floor setup of kitchen, dining, living, bathroom and main bedroom suited me perfectly.”

    The upstairs twin looked cosy but I did not use. Lovely to be able to sit outside and enjoy the gardens and countryside views. Friendly but unobtrusive hosts were on hand in the adjacent Rectory if needed. Great location for touring and exploring. Ludlow is a gem. I hope to return.
