  • “Lovely cottage in a great spot for exploring the local villages of Pembridge and Eardisland.”

    Very well equipped, clean, comfortable accommodation and a friendly welcome from our hosts. The bedroom and bathroom are both huge. Ludlow is an easy drive away and it provides a good range of shops. The Cider Barn near Pembridge offers fabulous food and cider, of course! Had a great stay with friends who stayed in the adjoining cottage.
