The property

Situated close to the centre of Ludlow, a lovely historic town, this delightful holiday cottage is packed full of interesting character features, with original tiled floors and many sturdy beams and trusses.

Set over three floors, the cottage opens up into a spacious, well-equipped kitchen with two steps leading up into a lovely dining room complete with feature fireplace and French doors out to the courtyard garden area.

The winding staircase takes you to the first floor landing leading to a pleasant bedroom with en-suite shower room and four steps up take you to the attractive sitting room with balcony, perfect for sitting and relaxing on a warm evening.

Carry on up to the third floor and here you will find the master bedroom, exuding character and style and perfectly complemented by its en-suite bathroom with luxurious freestanding bath and large shower.

Outside there is a pretty courtyard garden to enjoy and all the delights of the popular town of Ludlow are on your doorstep.

This charming town centre cottage with its character features and quirky decor will delight you with its surprisingly spacious and comfortable accommodation.

The bustling town of Ludlow with its castle, riverside walks, 13th century church and varied architecture has much to offer the visitor.

There are many cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as individual shops, lining the historical streets of this lovely town.

The regular weekly markets, racecourse, renowned Ludlow Brewery and annual food and medieval fayres attract a host of visitors from far and wide.

A short drive will take you through unspoilt South Shropshire countryside where you can find many pretty towns and villages, including Much Wenlock and Bridgnorth as well as Ironbridge with its many World Heritage museums.

There are gardens and historic homes to explore or you may like to take a trip back in time visiting Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, as seen on television, or taking a ride on a steam train on the Severn Valley Railway.

Walkers will find the stunning landscapes of Long Mynd, the Clee Hills and the Stiperstones invigorating.

It is well worth setting a couple of days aside to visit Shrewsbury and Hereford.

If you wish to venture even further afield then you can take the train from Ludlow to Manchester, Cardiff or Chester.

After a busy day out, this delightful, character cottage will provide a warm welcome all year round.
