  • "We loved our stay at Manor Cottage."

    It was very close to the town and Castle being around 10 mins walk. The cottage was well equipped, with everything you need, including a freezer and a dishwasher ( not listed in details) There was a useful paved area at the back which was secure for our dog to explore, and it would be good to sit out in sunnier weather . The cottage was cosy and warm to come back to after a day exploring all the dog friendly shops and Castle. Ludlow is a nice little town, with plenty of pubs and restaurants. We will definitely book again.

    good owner and clean premises plus handy location.

  • "Fabulous cottage, well equipped with everything we needed for a family Christmas week away."

    Even included dishwasher tablets and washing liquid. The living room is small but cosy & warm with reclining sofas but the best part is the huge kitchen with a lovely big table where we could all eat together and play board games & cards (a selection were even provided). Large fridge with good size freezer too. Bedrooms were comfy and having a downstairs loo was very handy. Phil was an exceptional host, always on hand if we needed anything. Only a 10 minute walk into Ludlow which is a beautiful town. Parking available for 3 cars that close to town is very rare. The only downside we had was continous rain but no on can be blamed for that. We had such a lovely holiday and I really didn't want to leave. If we visit Ludlow again we will definitely try to book Manor Cottage.

  • "We stayed in December and the cottage was cosy and warm."

    It is clean and well equipped and very well positioned for visiting Ludlow and the wider Shropshire and Herefordshire area. Pluses: comfy sofas, good lighting, warm bedding, good kitchen equipment, hairdryer provided. Parking was straightforward, not too tight. Suggestions: single bed mattress not brilliant. Towels are provided but a hand towel in the downstairs toilet would be good.

    Manor cottage was fresh, clean, comfy and very warm. It is located a short walk from the town centre on a fairly busy road. This may be a little noisy in Summer when windows are open but we barely noticed the traffic noise during our visit. Gallows Hill is 5 mins from the cottage and a brilliant space to exercise your dogs. We would definitely return

    The BBQ + charcoal was great. As were the local guidebooks and OS maps, much better than the pile of random leaflets you often get. The beds were very comfortable and the pans were the best we have ever seen in a rental accomodation. A couple of minor niggles...quite limited on the number of wine glasses. The parking took a bit of getting used to, as the visibility coming off the driveway is not great, but we coped!

  • "Another fantastic stay at Manor Cottage."

    This was our fourth visit to Ludlow and as usual we were not disappointed. Following a warm welcome from our genial albeit unobtrusive host Phil we set about exploring the Marches and hitherto unfamiliar parts of Mid Wales. We thoroughly recommend the Elan Vally, a mere fifty minutes drive through stunning scenery. For those, like us who have a horse mad eleven year old in tow the nearby North Farm Equestrian Centre provides some lovely hacks through Mortimer Forest. Excellent dog walks too. Similarly, Darky Dale Riding Stables near Befstone provides much enjoyment in surroundings that leave an indelible impression. Returning home to the ease and comfort of Manor Cottage always provides a bonus. A mere five minutes walk takes you to the Queens where a warm Shropshire welcome and a truly excellent menu awaits. Here's the secret - Ludlow provides amazingly good value for money. We often proclaim 'how much!' and not for reasons one might expect. Thanks Phil; thanks Shropshire; thanks Ludlow.
