  • "A lovely comfortable, well equipped mews cottage, in a quiet location but only 5 mins walk to town centre."

    2 mins walk to Tesco. Had a very relaxing stay. Note the property description: no TV and very poor 4G signal but that suited us.

  • "Nice, clean and comfortable cottage."

    I knew in advance that the cottage didn't have wifi or TV so no issue here. I took some DVDs to watch movies in the evenings. What I didn't expect was the practically lack of signal inside the cottage. I went to visit my daughter who lives in Ludlow and was planning to work from the cottage during the day using the hot spot on my mobile phone. It was impossible to connect which was very frustrating. I had to spend my whole stay working from coffee shops in Ludlow which was far from ideal and also added an unnecessary additional cost to my bill. Unless WIFI is installed I won't stay at 138D Old Star and Garter Mews again. I am sure the owner is losing business as a result. Apart from this, the cottage is cute, comfortable and has a great location (just 2min walk from Tesco which is useful for shopping)

  • "Nice, comfortable property in a good location."

    Well maintained, clean and fully equipped for our arrival. The only disappointment is the lack of a normal tv service. Whilst this was advised in advance and was not a real issue for a short break, I would expect visitors staying for a week or more would find it a significant omission.

    Many thanks for your feedback and glad that you enjoyed your stay. The comment regarding a TV is certainly something we'll take on board and investigate. As the cottage was originally just for our personal use we didn't miss having a TV but we appreciate that others have different requirements. Kind regards Property Owner

About the location


Church Stretton 15 miles; Hereford 25 miles; Shrewsbury 28 miles; Worcester 33 miles.

The historic market town of Ludlow is situated on the River Teme, amidst the outstanding countryside of the Welsh Marches. With more than 500 listed buildings, the town provides a fascinating range of architecture including Ludlow Castle which is over 900 years old and is one of the first stone castles to be built in England. Today the castle is open all year round and hosts a wide range of events including outdoor theatre, food, art and literature festivals and many antique and art fairs. Below the castle, Millenium Green offers a large public riverside green and weir and provides excellent indoor and outdoor dining facilities via the Green Cafe located right on the riverside. Ludlow has held street markets since the twelfth century. Nowadays, a traditional open-air market takes place in the town square every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday throughout the year. More than forty stalls selling a range of goods including fresh produce, cheeses, books and a selection of local crafts are on offer with the 'Local to Ludlow' produce market some Thursdays and an Antique & Flea market some Sundays. Ludlow is also a gourmet’s paradise and a shopper’s dream. The town boasts many places to eat and drink, as well as a number of exclusive boutique style clothes and gift shops. Ludlow is within easy reach of Church Stretton, Shrewsbury and Hereford, as well as popular attractions such as World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge, Severn Valley Railway, Berrington Hall, Croft Castle and Cardingmill Valley. Ludlow is a superb destination for a relaxing all year-round break.
