  • “Super apartment, with lots of nice ...”
    Super apartment, with lots of nice little extras, e.g. milk, bread, butter in the fridge for us. There were Christmas decorations & we were even invited in to the staff party downstairs!

The property

This Grade II listed apartment was originally part of a typical Ludlow 15th century house.

Today the ground floor is Baker's of Tower Street restaurant and coffee house and above is this charming, character two storey apartment, which is ideally situated just a five minute walk from the heart of the famous medieval town centre.

This beautifully-presented apartment has a modern twist which enhances the character features of this old, charming building, such as the wealth of original oak beams, wall timbers and trusses which are complemented by the thoughtful and attractive decor throughout.

This welcoming apartment is the perfect accommodation for an all year round retreat near the centre of this wonderful medieval town with its vibrant markets and food festivals.

There are two beautifully-presented character bedrooms, a pleasant sitting room furnished with contemporary styling and a spacious dining kitchen, which has access to a private first floor open-air terrace, complete with table and chairs.

This stylish apartment is a superb base for enjoying the popular market town of Ludlow and its surrounding area.

There is a wide-ranging selection of activities to discover, including Stokesay Castle, the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, the scenic Long Mynd and Caradoc Hills above Church Stretton, not to mention the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, the Severn Valley Railway and days out in Shrewsbury and Hereford.

This superb apartment is in a wonderfully convenient location, ideal for a relaxing break in Ludlow, described by the poet John Betjeman as "the loveliest town in England".
