  • "Though the cottage is very small, we found it to be ideal for us."

    It is in an excellent location, being close to services, but very quiet. The cottage provided everything we needed and we enjoyed our stay there very much.

    It was quiet yet about 200 yards from the town centre with its pubs and restaurants. Ludlow is a delightful town and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "We stayed 2 nights - 21st & 22nd June 2021."

    This was our first time away from home since Feb 2020 due to Covid restrictions. We were apprehensive about staying away from home but having both been fully vaccinated we decided to take a short break, not too far from home. The property was spotless, comfortable and had hand sanitiser as well as antibac liquid soap in both the bathroom and kitchen. Although located in the middle of the town, it was really quiet with only the chirping of birds waking us in the morning! Although small, it was well equipped, would be easy to eat in should you wish. Lovely to have milk, coffee and tea as well as basic cleaning equipment and fresh flowers provided. Having a free parking space a short walk away, was a real bonus. We really enjoyed exploring Ludlow, eating out for the first time in over 16mths. All the shops, restaurants and attractions were all very Covid compliant.

  • "This is a lovely cottage right in the heart of Ludlow."

    The host arranged free parking for the duration of our stay which made coming and going so much easier. The cottage itself had everything we needed, was very comfortable and set back from the road so noise wasn't an issue. The little touches such as fresh flowers in the cottage and a pint of milk to welcome us were really appreciated. Ludlow is a very pretty town with plenty to do and see and was the base for many lovely walks through the Shropshire and Herefordshire countryside while we were there.

  • "Cosy, spotlessly clean, well equipped with quality fittings."

    I highly recommend this cottage, ideal for a couple on holiday with everything you need and in a perfect location. The photos don’t do it justice. There is parking 2 minutes walk.

  • "The location is very hard to find, the directions given suggest one approaches from the town centre, however that access was closed and one approached from the south."

    The cottage would be better located if the information stated that the gates are located between 30 and 34 Old Street Ludlow. The car park is ok but for some elderly people it would be to far away to walk back to the cottage. However our stay was enjoyable and the cottage comfortable.

    Very clean, Bed comfortable, Quiet mews. Plenty of Restaurants and cafes in the town (must book). There is now a reserved parking space available which is about a 5 minute walk. Very useful as street parking is always full. We enjoyed lots of local walks and hikes. We thoroughly recommend

  • "Old Town Cottage is tucked away in the heart of this beautiful town."

    An easy stroll to the square and all the restaurants and shops, or down to the River Teme. We were provided with a parking space a short walk away which was handy. The cottage is in a quiet and peaceful spot ideal for our long weekend. The property is tiny but has everything a couple would need and was comfortable and very clean. Jane was easy to deal with and very efficient.

  • "The cottage is as described - cute and comfortable, spotlessly clean."

    It's location is perfect situated on this small pedestrian access pathway, so it's very quiet and peaceful even though it's just a few minutes walk from the town centre. Our only observation would be that, in our opinion, the double bed is in need of a new mattress! otherwise a lovely mini break that did us both good. Well equipped and has everything you could need, good water pressure for the shower and enough room for two for a break in lovely Ludlow.

  • "There is a parking space which can be reserved a short distance from the cottage which we only became aware about once we contacted the owner."

    We found this to be really helpful and I think it could encourage other people to book the cottage if they were also aware.

    We were please with the comfort and proximity of the cottage also the general upkeep of the property including décor and anything that was provided for the visitor would recommend this as a holiday stay

  • "The accommodation was lovely."

    It took half an hour of circumnavigation of Ludlow to find, but that was because we didn’t know Ludlow very well and signage was a bit vague. The owner provided details of a very useful parking place and daily exercise was beneficial going to and from this gem as parking in Ludlow is at a premium. As you would expect in February, the weather was VERY weatherish, storm Dennis accompanied us on our journey to Ludlow, and storm Jorge followed us home, but with a combination of waterproof skin and determination many lovely locations were visited, splashing to and from them. We admired many cavernous potholes in Shropshire’s road network, and this made our journeys adventurous to say the least. So to sum up, accommodation 10/10..overall holiday 9/10.

  • "The cottage was comfortable and very convenient for access to the town centre."

    We travelled by train and it was an easy walk from the station. The flowers in the living room and bedroom were very attractive but we'd have really welcomed a pint of milk in the fridge to make a cup of tea on arrival. I travelled light and didn't bring a hairdryer so was disappointed not to find one provided as in other Sykes properties we've stayed in. The kitchen although compact had all we needed - however there was minimal information on rubbish disposal as regards recycling.We agree with another visitor that a reading light in the living room would be welcome. Overall we recommend this cottage for a short break in Ludlow.

    Weather wasn't great which made our choice of a cottage over a hotel a good one. First time time we have used a cottage like this and took "essentials" with us but it proved not necessary as everything was already there.Was just right for two people,great location and getting the key couldn't have been easier.Parking as in most small market towns was a bit of a problem but can be worked round with several car parks to hand. Would definitely stay there again.
