  • "The cottage is very small, especially the kitchen and the one bedroom."

    Because we’re travelling from Australia and have been in the UK for four months, we have a lot of luggage which we found difficult to store in the small cottage. It may be ok for a couple of nights but we had booked for three weeks. In the end we left after two weeks and found somewhere much better suited to our needs in Somerset.

  • "An excellently located property, which provides comfort and has all the facilities and equipment you would need."

    There is a great small terrace to enjoy views over the river Teme and a small sunroom when weather doesn't allow using the terrace. The hosts are inobtrusive but on call if needed. they also provide excellent communications. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to stay again. Thank you, Martin and Susan Paul.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage in January."

    It had everything we needed. No microwave though. We were worried that we might not be warm enough being there in January but we were plenty warm enough with the heating provided. We didn’t use the little conservatory but in warmer weather it would be lovely sitting in there watching the river and wildlife. Parking was easy having a parking permit. We ate out at The Charlton a couple of times which was great. If we wanted to go back to the Ludlow area again we would definitely stay at Troutbeck cottage again. The hosts were available if we needed them for anything. We enjoyed the wine and nuts, and loved the beautiful roses left for us. The milk in the fridge was also very welcome. Ludlow is a beautiful town even in winter so don’t hesitate to go and stay at this cottage.

    There’s everything you need for a week and more. It looks over the river teme and even though the river was very high due to the recent very heavy rain we saw goosander, heron, moorhen, mallard and a grey wagtail. Ludlow is a lovely town with a nice market especially on Saturday. Well had guided tours of Croft castle and berrington hall.

    It is looking rather tired outside, in need of painting. However, once inside we relaxed. The property is well equipped and charming. The conservatory and patio are excellent, especially with the October sunshine. We experienced a tv problem which the owner immediately rectified. Morning coffee, sat on the patio overlooking the River Severn, who could ask for more. Ludlow and the surrounding area is beautiful.

The bathroom was lovely with a great shower and the bed was very comfortable. The living area is great with space to eat at the table if you wish and having the conservatory and patio/terrace area was perfect - we were lucky enough to have nice weather and made the most of it! It was nice to sit and listen to the river! Having the parking permit was great, there are plenty of options for parking within that zone.

    Nice welcome pack on arrival and the parking permit was very useful. Could do with a small microwave. Useful for warming up take-away food from the cracking town of Ludlow. A larger shelf in the bathroom would be handy too. It is quite a steep walk up into the town but parking is available but be early as it's a very popular town.

  • "A lovely terraced cottage on the side of the river Teme."

    From the street you walk in to the kitchen which is small but has practically everything that you need. Stairs are in the middle of the cottage and the living room is straight ahead. At the back of the living room is a under floor heated conservatory with double doors leading to a small patio on the river. We stayed in winter, so never made use of the conservatory, but would imagine that it is ideal for when the weather is warmer. Upstairs was a single bedroom with ample storage for clothes, etc. Also a bathroom with a large shower, heated towel rail and under floor heating. The town centre is a few minutes walk up the hill, lots of shops, pubs, restaurants, cafes, etc. The other side of the town is a Tesco and Aldi supermarkets with the Ludlow Brewery close by (well worth a visit). Unfortunately it snowed during our week here and the castle was closed due to icy conditions. However, we would recommend the St Laurence church and its tower views, if you can manage the 201 stairs. I think we tried practically every pub in town and would recommend Ye Olde Bull Tavern and the Rose and Crown. We enjoyed our stay but were rather restricted by the snow and icy conditions. The roads were gritted but the pavements were not, felt the council could have done better, especially with the number of elderly people who live in the town. Parking is straight forward with a permit system in place. We parked in a side street opposite the cottage, lots of spaces available.

    Thank you for your feedback. Glad you enjoyed your stay and survived the icy snap in the weather. I must commend your choice of town pubs both are lovely old character pubs and I am sure that the welcome was far warmer than the weather. Regards Tim n Angie Property Owner

    It felt homely and inviting with the pictures and ornaments well looked after. The conservatory was nice, to sit and watch the river and getting a glimpse of the otters was truly exciting. Bed was lovely and plenty of room for clothes, bathroom spacious, shower hot. We did stay December, during a cold snap so found the single glazed front door and window colder than at home, the radiator helped and once you start cooking it soon warms up. Still would stay again.
