The property

Ludlow 5.2 miles.

The Old Stable offers characterful and beautifully presented accommodation in a charming converted Victorian stable building, close to the historic town of Ludlow, Shropshire.

Situated in the heart of the Shropshire Hills, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, the property is surrounded by pristine countryside, it is the perfect retreat for couples, families or friends looking to enjoy walks, cycling or just to unwind surrounded by nature.

The accommodation is arranged over the first floor above the original stables.

A light and appealing open plan living area has been thoughtfully designed to incorporate everything that you will need for a wonderful stay.

A cosy living area features a wood burning stove and a Juliette balcony offers views over surrounding woodland and a stream below.

The modern kitchen is well equipped and includes a dishwasher as well as all the essentials to prepare delicious meals to be enjoyed at the dining table.

The property features two bedrooms: a generous king size bedroom with a feature window and walk-in wardrobe, as well as a twin bedroom.

This serene and quiet country location is guaranteed to offer a great night’s sleep.

A beautiful bathroom features a double ended bath with hand held shower, positioned under a skylight where you can lie back and watch housemartins or gaze at the stars.

Outside, find a generous private cobbled courtyard, furnished for your relaxation where you can enjoy a morning coffee or evening drink.

The Old Stable is situated between the Clee Hills: two of Shropshire highest points.

This ancient landscape has been inhabited for centuries and you can walk to an Iron Age hill fort at Nordy Ring to take in the breathtaking views over England and Wales.

The historic walled town of Ludlow is only ten minutes drive away, described by Sir John Betjeman as ‘probably the loveliest town in England’.

Explore the famous Castle, the perfectly preserved medieval houses and beautiful shops.

The town is famous for excellent pubs and restaurants, a bustling food festival, concerts in the Castle and a Medieval Christmas Fayre.

The town is positioned on a bend in the River Teme and Whitcliffe Common Nature Reserve and Mortimer Forest are both within easy reach for walkers.

There’s tons of things to do locally for adults and families alike.

We recommend the stunning English heritage sites at Stokesay Castle, Much Wenlock Priory and Buildwas Abbey as well as the Iron Bridge museums and the Historic town of Bridgnorth.

If excitement is your thing you can find zip wires, quad bike adventures, horse riding and much more at Live the Adventure at Stottesdon, the Great Escape at Hopton Castle and Oaker Wood at Kingsland.

After a great day out, it’s great to know there’s a perfect country pub with stunning food nearby.

At the Old Stable you are spoilt for choice as two favourite locals, the Tally Ho at Bouldon and the Pheasant at Neenton are both National Pub of the Year award winners.

Enjoy all this and more with a stay at Old Stable.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
