  • "This year we used The Maltster's House, for an Easter family get-together including our 4 grandchildren."

    We used the property for a similar Christmas gathering several years back and have found it ideal on both occasions. On both visits, the house was full of laughter and enjoyed by all. The accommodation is comfortable and convenient and provides an ideal base to explore this beautiful part of the country

  • "Great property ."

    Very comfortable and restful. Brilliant location. As the temperature outside dropped and was frosty we wanted to light the wood burner but could find nothing to light it with. Perhaps some Prosecco glasses would have made the celebratory weekend complete. Other than that , perfect!

  • "A lovely, spacious, clean, well appointed and equipped property, walking distance to everywhere in central Ludlow and very near supermarkets and train station."

    It is on a main road, a bit noisy sometimes if the front windows are open. Good to have a free parking space in the road. Unfortunately the sound on the lounge television did not work and we didn't want to waste holiday time staying in for engineers, so could not use it.

    Thank you for your feedback. Following your stay we had an engineer come out to the property and fix the issue with the television before the next guests arrived. We thank you for your stay and hope you enjoyed it regardless of this. Property Owner

    10 minute walk to centre of town & castle. Aldi, Tesco and railway station around the corner. We parked at the railway station for our stay as the property is on the main road and only has parking for one vehicle. Eating establishments tend to close at 2:30 pm and reopen at 6 pm.

    All the rooms a generous size. Very comfortable beds and leather sofas. The kitchen is well equipped with pans etc. Two boilers so there are no hot water issues when staying with a large group. Excellent location, with the centre only a few minutes away at the top of the street, and the walk to Dinham Weir starting at the old church yard opposite the house. The owner was exceptionally helpful, making sure we had good restaurant tips in advance; we loved the "secret" parlour pub at no. 14 Corve Street. Highly recommended overall.

    Parking is obviously an issue in Ludlow, but you can unload outside the house before moving the car to a car park, all of which charge 7 days a week.

  • "The cottage was great."

    It was in an excellent location, very comfortable, and well equipped. The parking situation is a bit inconvenient. We had to park a short distance away, in a pay and display carpark. The tariff was payable from 8am to 6pm. There was no option to pay in advance, so we had to get to the carpark to pay by 8am( except Sunday, which was free). The TVs didn't work. The owners did try to resolve this, without success. They did say that sometimes this was due to previous visitors, messing with the cables( although not in this case).Maybe this is something that could be checked before new visitors check in. There were no champagne glasses.

    Thank you for your feedback. Both televisions have been checked and it appears to have been guest errors. The TV in the dining room was working and the TV in sitting room was receiving radio channel(if TV displays no channel found, please press AV button on Panasonic remote control.) Thank you again for your feedback and I am glad to see you scored your stay so highly. Property Owner

    Storage space and toilets may be an issue. The house is very tastefully decorated and generally well equipped. The host was extremely helpful. The WiFi that was an issue in some reviews has clearly been resolved. We were unlucky to have roadworks on the busy main road directly outside the house which made it very noisy with cars waiting at the traffic lights from early morning.

    It met our expectations . We had a problem with a radiator not working the owners were round to sort it out for us with in the hour. The size of the cottage was great we weren’t on top of each other . The 2 separate downstairs areas meant you could relax more . Well equipped kitchen . One feature that would help, would have been spare bedding as we had young children and accidents can happen and we didn’t have spare bedding for when this happened . Location was great for getting out and about or staying around Ludlow. We had days where some guests weren’t 100% to go out and about the house was a good size for people to relax in. The centre of Ludlow just there meant they could have a wander around .
