    “A cosy place to stay right in the centre of Ludlow.”

    So many nice shops, restaurants and pubs in walking distance. St Laurences church worth a visit. Lovely walks in surrounding area.

The property

This charming three-storey property is located on the main street in Ludlow, running straight into the centre of town.

Ideal for a couple or small family, 42 Old Street provides cosy and welcoming accommodation for up to four guests wishing to enjoy this honeypot Shropshire location.

Entering into the property, you will notice characterful touches throughout, from wooden beamed ceilings to stunning antiques, adding to its charm.

You will be greeted by an open-plan living/kitchen/dining area, with wooden flooring and a small dining table with seating for four, where you can enjoy meals together.

There is a sofa you can relax on while you flick through the TV channels and the feature open fireplace adds character to the room, although this is not in use, there are nice sized radiators that will fill the room with warmth, should you wish to add to the cosy feel of this space.

The kitchen is contemporary with sleek grey units and offers the space to cook up delicious meals for the group.

Take care heading up the carpeted staircase, as it's fairly steep, once you reach the top, you will find the first double bedroom, offering a dressing table area with mirror, so you can get ready for each day, plus hanging space for clothes, plus bedside tables with lamps, should you wish to do a spot of late-night reading.

Next door is the contemporary bathroom with a walk-in shower, the perfect way to start each day with an invigorating soak.

Heading up to the second floor, the spacious master bedroom features a double bed, hanging space and bedside tables, plus a wonderful en-suite bathroom with a roll top bath and Velux window, so you can look out at the sky as you relax in the tub.

The property lies on the main road that goes straight into the centre of Ludlow town, so you have a choice of shops and eateries practically on your doorstep, as well as exclusive boutique-style clothes and gift shops to peruse.

Ludlow is known as a foodie's paradise, holding up a tradition of open-air markets in the market square several times a week that date back to the twelfth century, with a very special 'Local to Ludlow' produce market taking place intermittently on a Thursday.

Ludlow Castle is a short distance from the property, and has stood for over 900 years as one of the first stone castles to be built in England.

Below the caste, you can stroll around Millenium Green, one of the few spots along the River Teme which is easily accessible by the public, and why not enjoy a spot of lunch along the river at the Green Café?

Further afield, the towns of Church Stretton, Shrewsbury and the cathedral city of Hereford are all in easy reach, as is the Shropshire Hills AONB in the Welsh Marshes, where you can enjoy walks along rivers, through woodland and meadows, and if you're feeling adventurous, climb Brown Clee Hill or The Stiperstones, the two largest hills in the county, and be rewarded with panoramic views from the top.

There is so much to explore in this wonderful Shropshire location, and 42 Old Street is the perfect homely base from which to begin your adventure.
