  • “This attractive cottage is very well located being less than five minutes' walk from Ludlow's market place and is ideally situated for enjoying the town's facilities and those in the wider area.”

    The opening giving vehicular access to the cottage is very narrow and needs care to avoid scraping your vehicle but (when driven through) leads to two parking spaces allocated to the cottage. The cottage itself is fairly comfortable and the heating adequate, at least for those colder evenings in late summer; autumn/winter might be another matter. But the allocation of just one set of door keys is a bit limiting, even for a couple, let alone two couples sharing the accommodation. And it is ...

    The opening giving vehicular access to the cottage is very narrow and needs care to avoid scraping your vehicle but (when driven through) leads to two parking spaces allocated to the cottage. The cottage itself is fairly comfortable and the heating adequate, at least for those colder evenings in late summer; autumn/winter might be another matter. But the allocation of just one set of door keys is a bit limiting, even for a couple, let alone two couples sharing the accommodation. And it is disappointing that there is no facility for recycling paper and cardboard, although that would appear to be the fault of the local council.

    Thank you for your feedback re 138E Old Star & Garter Mews. Unfortunately there is little we can do to extend the vehicle access to the property as the cottage was built in 1820 and is a listed building. We do point it out to our guests and, although it's a bit nervy the first time so far there have been no incidents! Parking is at a premium in Ludlow and we are fortunate to be able to offer our guests plenty of free parking space 24 hours a day. We are fully aware of the heating we provide in the cottage for both Summer and Winter. Both bedrooms have wall mounted electric heaters. The bathroom has a good size wall mounted heater/towel rail and in the lounge we have an OptyMist Log burner plus extra free standing heaters which we keep in the cupboard under the stairs. We also have two oil burning radiators which are available to our guests at all times if required. We do point out in the cottage manual should extra heating be required to call our manager and he will sort straight away. We have taken on board your feedback on providing one set of door keys. Up until recently we clearly pointed out in the house manual should guests lock themselves out our manager is local and available to sort out the problem. I understand Mr Watson unfortunately did lock himself out of the cottage and our manager was able to resolve the situation within ten minutes. We also note to our guests to leave the keys in the lock box when leaving to avoid these accidents occurring. But we appreciate the feedback and now have two sets for our guests on arrival. Also we do provide a recycling bin for guests which is kept underneath the sink in the kitchen. Due to space it's tricky to provide more than one bin and we ask guests to leave any recycling to be sorted by our housekeeper during changeovers. - Sykes owner relations
