  • "Excellent. The property owner organised parking for us, which we did not realise at the time was a huge saving and was very convenient."

    He also advised us about eating out which was again very beneficial. The property it self was very clean and comfortable, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Great cottage in superb location with all amenities required for a relaxing break."

    The hosts have tastefully decorated the cottage, with great attention to detail and it is extremely comfortable and cosy with a great view over the river. They went above and beyond in getting in touch and providing information regarding parking and restaurant recommendations plus leaving a few goodies to enjoy. The cottage is a short walk uphill into the centre and there are many places to eat and drink in Ludlow and the castle and church are well worth a visit. We would definitely recommend this cottage for a stay in Ludlow.

  • "Tim, our host, met us at the station and dropped us off at the cottage which was very generous of him and a great start to our holiday."

    The first thing we did was to go into the conservatory to watch the river flowing by. Later, after a day out we would make coffee and sit in the comfy chairs, soothed by the sound of the river. This is a really unusual and peaceful place to stay. The bedroom has more than plenty of wardrobe and drawer space and the bed is comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom are well equipped and easy to keep clean. All the furnishings and fittings in the cottage have been chosen with good taste making our stay very pleasant. Thank you Tim and Angie for making Troutbeck cottage a lovely place to stay

  • "Lovely little cottage overlooking the river."

    No trouble with parking with the permit up a nearby side road. Could stop outside cottage to load and unload the car. Very peaceful place with restaurants and pubs within easy reach. There is quite a steep hill up into the town but manageable if taken slowly. Would definitely consider booking again.

    It was clean, warm and very comfortable. The cottage is convenient for the town and superb walks around Ludlow, along with the scenic riverside location. The hosts are also attentive and we really appreciated the inclusion of the weekly parking permit that comes with the booking. Ludlow and Shropshire are delightful areas for a holiday.

  • "The lovely flowers, wine and biscuits were a pleasant surprise."

    We loved the conservatory and patio. It was so nice to sit and watch the ducks and swans on the river. Location was perfect, quiet but minutes from the buzz of the lovely town. Maybe a microwave would have been useful but couldn't find anything to fault about this pretty cottage.

    Ludlow and the surrounding area was definitely worth visiting and we intend returning to see more. Thanks to Tim and Angie, our hosts, who provided a much appreciated welcome pack and local knowledge of great eateries in the town.

  • "Perfect location for access to the town and surrounding areas to visit."

    Very well maintained and has all you need to make your stay comfortable. The sunroom and terrace are great for a little chill out, morning coffee or nightcap or just sitting and listening to the river and watching the wildlife. The welcome pack is comprehensive and tells you all you need to know. Hosts kept in touch and arranged parking permit and also gave recommendations for places to eat...which were all so lovely. From pub grub to high end, all were so good. The local shops and market offer great food. Lovely bakery , cheese shop and deli in the square. Overall a good staycation destination.
