  • "This is one of the best holiday properties we have stayed in."

    We couldn’t fault it. The house is very spacious, well equipped and well located. We loved Ludlow and the Shropshire hills. There is so much to do in the area. If we come back to Shropshire we would love to stay in Harris house again. Off street parking is essential for us and there is plenty of parking on the drive. We really enjoyed our stay.

  • "Second stay for us at Harris House, and we returned because it really is a superb house to stay in with a lovely garden."

    Immaculately presented, spacious and well equipped it is a well positioned, to walk into Ludlow or travel out to the many attractions in the area. Despite staying in June , the weather was cold and wet, so the central heating was very welcome!. One of the best Sykes locations in my view and we will be back.

  • "Harris house is in a brilliant position just a gentle stroll from Ludlow town centre."

    Andy and Anna the owners have gone to a great deal of trouble to ensure that everything is well organised so that your stay will be as stress free as possible. Judging by the guest book many {including ourselves} come back time and time again. This is a beautiful house in a very beautiful part of the Uk so if you have not been before give it a try. I assure you, you will not regret it.

  • "The house was nice, large rooms , plenty of parking space."

    The living room furniture was ok if a little old. It would be nice to have a Amazon firestick or the like so that you had on demand tv - iPlayer, ITV on demand etc.

    With the exception of one antique armchair, the furniture in the living room is all high-quality Parker Knoll in immaculate condition and it is not old! You are correct that the TV is not a smart TV, but in fairness, the description does not say otherwise. Freeview and Freesat are both available and guests are welcome to stream on demand TV via their own devices if they wish. Property Owner

  • "Harris House is well equipped and spacious."

    It's in a handy location, just a short walk from Ludlow centre and convenient for the train station, plus it has parking which is always a bonus in Ludlow. In terms of comfort, the only thing we struggled a bit with is that the sofa is quite firm. We like to sit and read on holiday and it wasn't the best for relaxation, but that is a personal choice as all the furniture was in a good condition.

  • "Lovely spacious house with plenty of room to share or be alone."

    Lots of walks from the front door. We walked into Ludlow centre most days. Lots of interesting shops and things to do. Train 5 mins walk my daughter went to Shrewsbury to meet a friend under her own steam. Nice and different markets most days. Just great. We all had a good time and would like to come again perhaps for longer. Lots of things left to do or revisit. After the last 18 months and several cancelled family holidays this was just the ticket. We loved the 'cooks' kitchen, the garden and the huge bedrooms. Quiet and peaceful but minutes away from everything you need. Thank you to Andrew and Anna.

    This was our second holiday based at Harris House and all that anyone needs to know about the property has already been said in the reviews below. Ludlow town is a gem in itself and within walking distance. The train station is nearer and only 7 minutes walk away and we used the train for visits on our 2 holidays to: Worcester, Hereford, Aberystwyth. We also took advantage of Heart of Wales Circular Day Ranger. This ticket takes a circular route. We departed and arrived back at Ludlow travelling via Craven Arms, the rural 100 mile Heart of Wales Line with its spectacular scenery and 29 stations, Llanelli, Cardiff, Abergavenny. We also visited the National Trust properties: Croft Castle and Berrington Hall.

  • "This house is a really lovely place to go on holiday."

    It had everything you would need and was extremely spacious and comfortable and very well equipped. The garden was fantastic, I met the gardener and had a nice chat with him about the plants. It's a great place to sit out in on a sunny day and even has some herbs you can use for cooking. We would definitely recommend Harris House to anyone wanting to visit Ludlow. The local area is great, it has got castles, a market, museums and good walks, as well as all the local amenities and a market and good restaurants. We went to Hay on Wye for the day which was absolutely wonderful for people who love books. Also my partner found a great vinyl shop in Ludlow that he says is worth visiting if that is your thing. Overall we would recommend this holiday cottage without hesitation, as well as the area. It would suit families with younger children and older family groups as well.

  • "So Glad we found Harris House, Ludlow."

    Wanted to take my 83 year old father away for a relaxing week as he had been poorly. Luckily we picked the Early May Bank holiday that was the hottest on Record. Our family has never rented a holiday home before so we really did not know what to expect. I am now afraid, because our expectations were exceeded, Harris House has now set the Gold standard bar for future holiday lets in other destinations. In fact – we may not go elsewhere and carry on going to Ludlow every year because this house had everything and our time spent there was lovely and relaxing. The owners sent a lovely email a few weeks before our due date (05.05.18 - 12.05.18), and from the tone of that you could tell that nothing was a problem – just to contact them had you any concerns. I want to repeat everything everyone has complimented and mentioned on the sykes cottage website, i.e Spotless, quiet location, stones throw away from Ludlow town, handy to A49 to reach other desitnations, household kit / appliances to very good standard, everything to hand, everything thought of. It also felt actually felt very homely and very peaceful. You did not feel out of place or scared to move. My father has difficulties with his mobility - but this house was perfect for anyone with these issues as everything was spaced out and it was not cluttered, so nothing to bang into and the stairs had a solid banister to help him. The shower was a power shower – so that made me very happy, and the view when doing the dishes out the window – money could not buy. Even doing dishes made me happy that week. It truly is a great place to stay.

    So very much provided that we didnt expect but the one thing that was missing and would have been most welcome was a pint of milk. Still, we didn't have far to walk to remedy the situation.

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.

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.
