  • "A brilliant little cottage in Ludlow."

    Perfect location as can walk into town, but it's slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the town itself. Parking wasn't a problem with using the permit. The house has everything you need and is lovely and comfortable.

    Thank you Rachel for your generous review. I hope you enjoyed some sunshine overlooking the River this weekend and wasn't it wonderful to see the " hustle & bustle" of Easter around the market, castle and church? We are so blessed in Ludlow. Come back and visit soon! Property Owner

  • "Nice cosy cottage for two but don't expect to park outside, The owner does provide a permit for the surrounding streets."

    I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay Kevin and we are happy to arrange the parking permit. St John's Road is 0.1 miles from Kingfisher and safer than parking on double yellows! We are local and happy to help. Property Owner

  • "Our only criticism (unless we missed something when we made the booking?"

    ) is the stairs. It would have been good if it had been pointed out that the stairs are tricky for anyone with mobility problems. They were fine for me but my hubby has Parkinson's which affects his balance so they were a bit of a challenge at times. Having said this, it didn't spoil our holiday at all and we loved our week in the cottage enjoying the amazing view from the rear garden

    Thank you for your feedback Gill which we take very seriously and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay despite the stairs. They are featured twice in the photographs to give you an idea of what to expect and I have just spoken to Sykes who were due to have updated the website regarding this back in August .... There are some features in the mill cottage we simply cannot rectify. We wish you all the best for your next adventure. Property Owner

  • "Kingfisher was perfect for a short break, in walking distance of the town, so no need to drive, also fantastic that a parking permit was provided so parking in a side street near Kingfisher was great."

    The cottage was very clean, comfortable and had everthing we needed. It was delightful as the garden backed onto the River Teme so very picturesque. Highly recommend.

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback. Delighted you enjoyed your stay . Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage, very handy to walk into Ludlow."

    The courtyard is a sun trap and very relaxing listening to the river Teme. The one, very minor, negative I have is that you have to be very careful not to bang your head when going up the stairs! Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.

    Thank you for your positive feedback and we are so glad you enjoyed the sunshine beside the river. Ahh the stairs! We do feature them twice in the photo's and leave a red warning in the info pack. A period design feature we learn to live with unfortunately. Good to know they didn't detract from your visit and we look forward to you returning in the future. Property Owner

  • "Cottage was lovely really enjoyed sitting in the garden watching the wildlife in the evening's very comfortable and in a really good area for visiting other tourist spots."

    Had to leave a sealed rubbish bag and some recycling at the cottage as no dust bins and no information on where to recycle which we don't usually do. Would recommend to friends looking for a break in the area

    Thank you for your positive review. We whisked away the rubbish/ recycling on change over as there aren’t options for bins at the front of the property . We look forward to you visiting again . Property Owner

  • "Kingfisher cottage is a real little gem."

    Well positioned just 5 minutes walk to the town centre . Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The rear garden overlooking the river is a real haven. We throughly enjoyed our week and would definitely book again. Alan and Yvonne Clarke.

    Belated thanks for your such positive review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Ludlow and you found the cottage to be both clean and comfy. We'd love to welcome you back in the future. Maybe a winter break with the fire lit? Regards. Property Owner

  • "Kingfisher Cottage is a gem of a property: a quiet oasis with the suntrap garden overlooking the river and the large comfortable bed in which one can fall sound asleep."

    It was a delight to stay at Kingfisher.

    It really was a pleasure to have you stay & I enjoyed our architectural chats ! Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely weekend and were very impressed by the cleanliness and comfort of the cottage."

    The courtyard is a suntrap and we spent a lot of time out there watching the wildlife and being serenaded by a song thrush. As described, everything in the town was accessible on foot and there was something going on in the castle square each day. We really appreciated the lovely welcome pack that was left for us. We look forward to returning to the cottage.

The property

Located on the banks of the River Teme in Ludlow, a bustling town just south of the wonderful Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, rests the charming, one-bedroom cosy Victorian Mill cottage of Kingfisher.

With permit parking, tastefully-presented interiors, and superb positioning to nearby shops and amenities, this delightful stay welcomes a couple seeking a romantic, self-catered escape near the banks of the River Teme.

Once you're unpacked, make yourself at home in your lovely new lodgings.

Cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen, before you settle down to enjoy your meals in the dining area, or even alfresco in the rear courtyard when the sun is shining.

In the evenings, retreat to the sitting room to catch up on the day's events with your nearest and dearest.

When sleep finally calls, head upstairs to refresh with a rejuvenating shower or a long, hot bath on your way to gaining a well-earned slumber in the plush king-size bedroom.

After you've finished your morning coffee, step outside and explore what your local area has to offer.

A walk into Ludlow will bring you to a wide variety of independent shops, gift shops, cafés, and supermarkets, where you can stock up on essentials or purchase some memorabilia, including Mollie's Traditional Sweet Shop, Daisies Gift Shop, White Stuff clothing shop, and the boutique shop of Eclectica of Ludlow, before you settle down for a traditional pub lunch at the Blue Boar or The Queens.

You'll find plenty to do in Ludlow: be sure to visit the markets, which are open 6 days a week and head over to haggle a bargain at the Ludlow Market, a farmer's market that occurs twice a month in the centre of town; take time to roam the historic grounds of battlements of Ludlow Castle; or simply take a tranquil walk within the serene greens of Linney Riverside Park.

Further afield, a trip to the Shropshire Hills AONB is a must when you visit the region, with noteworthy landmarks and attractions such as Flounders' Folly, Millichope Park, and the Nipstone Rock Nature Reserve just waiting to be enjoyed.

For the ultimate romantic escape to Shropshire, look no further than Kingfisher.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £50.
