  • "Had a fab time at Ludlow and the cottage all good."

    the beds bit hard but slept well and on suits could be a bit bigger had to open door to stand at sink to shave. location for the town was great and the surrounding areas.

  • "Beautiful holiday home."

    Well equipped, clean and very warm. Fab views over the countryside from the lovely bi fold doors. Sheltered patio table enabled us to sit outside even in April. Just a short walk into the town centre and just a few minutes to two supermarkets and the train station. Ludlow interesting and a great base for the beautiful Shropshire hills. Our only issue was that the instructions said that the house was on the right hand side whereas it was actually on the left !

  • "A clean, comfortable and modern property in a central location for all Ludlow has to offer."

    The facilities and equipment were all of good quality and the bi-folds were great to extend the dining area when the weather was suitable! Overall a lovely dog friendly property and garden which we wouldn't hesitate to recommend!

  • "The 'Little House' was in an ideal location for Ludlow town centre, Restaurants and local walks."

    The house was comfortable, warm and well equipped and spotlessly clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. The shower in one of the en suites was not working, a spare part had been ordered. It would have been helpful to have been made aware of this on or before arrival. This en suite is very small. We had a an enjoyable stay at 'Little House', and would like to return in the future.

    The "Little House" if as far removed from little as you could imagine with plenty of room for guests with a large outside garden with beautiful views. The amenities within the property are first class and alongside the cleanliness made this for us an ideal stay, many thanks J and D

  • "A beautiful bungalow."

    Clean, warm and modern. Excellent facilities and the underfloor heating was fab. The view of the garden and hills from the bifold doors was a bonus. Welcome basket treats too which were greatly appreciated. Easy walk into the town too. Lots of lovely shops and places to eat. Hope to return again.

  • "Beautiful clean, tidy, comfortable property."

    Lots of kitchen equipment, really comfy bedding and beds. Great quality furnishing. A couple of minor suggestions; towels were a little small, larger ones would be great, bins in bedrooms/bathrooms would be useful, and the layout of the living area was a bit too cramped. We moved chairs down to the larger kitchen area to allow us to sit comfortably together. And finally, massive thanks to Kevin who allowed us a later checkout on the Sunday, without this, our weekend would not have been so successful!

    Everything was of a very high standard and we would fully recommend booking this accommodation. It was very clean, cozy and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting at the dining table relaxing and enjoying the lovely view over the garden and hills and it was so convenient for the pubs and shops as well as some beautiful scenery and walks, not to forget the lovely castle.

  • "This is a great location for exploring Ludlow avoiding steep climbs!"

    Property is very well presented an comfortable and Ludlow is a great place to be! My only minor quibble is that, even in COVID times, I think that having to be out of the property by 9am on the last morning is a bit much especially when you are not able to access it until 4pm on the first day. Otherwise excellent!

  • "The Little Cottage in Ludlow is a hidden gem, the standard of the house is outstanding along with the quality of the furnishings that are provided."

    The garden is fantastic especially if you have a dog as its large and enclosed and the bi folding doors are a great feature which makes the most of the garden and house together. The beds were large and had a really good quality mattresses which is very often lacking in properties to rent and made a huge difference to your sleep quality. Great house and area with lots to do would really recommend.

  • "Without a doubt, the best self-catering house we have ever stayed in and we've stayed in a lot."

    Location is first class with a 5 minute walk into town which was important to us plus spotlessly clean and high end furnishings with crockery by Sophia Conran and cutlery and glassware of exceptional quality. The garden was huge and completely enclosed which was perfect for our Labrador and each bedroom large and spacious with, effectively, a bathroom each as there are two en-suites and one main bathroom. Parking was easy and the neighbour was friendly when we saw him. Communication was made with the caretaker just once and issue resolved. Everything was just wonderful and I have been sharing the Sykes listing with family and friends. Ludlow itself never disappoints as the independent shops are fantastic plus the architecture and the general feel of the town is always upbeat even in these challenging times. We will definitely be returning to this wonderful property.

  • "One of the best houses we have stayed in."

    Beautifully clean, very important in the times we are in. Very well furnished with good quality furnishings, lot's of kitchen equipment and good quality. Lovely views from the kItchen and dining room, looking out to a large well kept garden which is fully enclosed. Any one with a dog would have no worries. We are were left a hamper of basics, bread,milk,butter,jam,biscuits, very well received. The house is a five minute walk from Ludlow town centre, and lots of walks with ranging difficulties. We ate at The Clive Arms, and The Cafe on the Mill, down by the river. Both excellent food and staff that made you feel safe. Would stay here again without hesitation if we were in the area again. Just what we needed, Thank You.

  • "The property was exactly as described."

    It was clean and very well equipped. Everything was of a high specification and exactly what we wanted for our holiday. The property has beautiful views at the rear and the patio area gets the last of the sunshine. Overall we would recommend to anyone looking for a great property in a good location surrounded by lovely market towns with independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Parking is at a premium in Ludlow so it was appreciated with this property. We found wonderful restaurants within walking distance and a short drive away is the Ludlow Farm Shop/Clive Arms/Farm kitchen - a must for any visitor. Thank you

    One or too little glitches which could be improved for future use: Only one key available although the details said others would be in the house - this was not the case It was not very warm in the property and no means of bringing on the radiators even the towel rail radiators in the bathrooms No shaver plugs in any of the bathrooms which meant we had to go and buy an adaptor plug. However the house generally felt very welcoming and the enclosed garden was ideal for a small dog to have some freedom after spending a day visiting in a car or on a lead.

  • "This is definitely one of the best holiday homes we've stayed in and the location is perfect for walking into Ludlow and exploring the town."

    Everything about the Little House is fantastic - spacious, spotlessly clean, equipped with everything you need, beautifully furnished and with a fantastic outlook from the back garden. We really enjoyed sitting with the patio doors open on an evening and taking in the view over to the hills beyond. One of the few holiday homes that we all said we can't wait to return to. Thank you to the owner and manager for a fantastic and very relaxing few days! Please note: Sykes was not the most helpful with my booking - I received no email confirmation of my booking (despite receiving this email from the company to review the holiday after returning home, which seems quite strange...). I contacted Sykes to ask for confirmation and was told I would receive full details in the post but I never received anything - I'm now back from holiday and still nothing in the post... I managed to get all the info in the end by setting up an account and making some extra phone calls. Not the first time I've had trouble with Sykes. Luckily, this didn't spoil the holiday, but it does make me wonder about Sykes' system of communicating with their customers.
