  • "We had a fabulous stay at this cosy, comfortable and spotlessly clean cottage."

    Set on a working farm, Rob and Louise made us feel very welcome and the wine and cake was very much appreciated. We also enjoyed our daily visits from Pip the dog. Ideally located 3 miles from Ludlow we would definitely like to return.

    Friendly owners, who left welcome package on our arrival. Quiet location on working farm, very close to Ludlow and the Black & White Villages Trail. A lovely area to explore, and a lovely cottage to come home to.

  • "Lovely cottage on a working farm."

    Great communication from host's. Everything we needed, kitchen had everything you could want and welcome cake and wine was much appreciated. Log burner was an added bonus and replenishing our logs was no trouble. So peaceful, and no light pollution at night so had a great night's sleep. Great location for exploring Shropshire, we will definitely return if in the area again.

  • "This is an absolutely delightful cottage on a working farm in lovely very private rural location yet only a couple of miles from beautiful Ludlow (not really walkable though as there is no verge or pavement on the narrow road leading to it) with a petrol station and a supermarket on the way."

    The area is truly stunning with many walks, drives and places to visit within easy reach. The cottage is beautifully finished inside and all fittings and floorings are high quality. The kitchen is very well equipped, there is a good shower in the bathroom with plenty of hot water and the beds are super comfy. All in all simply idyllic!

  • "A fantastic stay, cottage was perfect being really well equipped, comfy and clean."

    The wood burner was an added bonus on a cold evening. There was plenty of room for the four of us and the children loved the games (and Pippa the dog) to play with. Location is excellent with Ludlow round the corner and Wyre forest, Croft Castle and Carding Mill Valley a short drive away. Highly recommend.

    It is part of a working farm and is very peaceful. The owner is charming & helpful yet never over bearing- I liked to hear a little of the history of the property & what great before and after pictures! I would certainly revisit Stone House.

  • "Stone Cottage is full of personality: a 16 Century cottage with exposed beams, a bread oven (no longer in use) and a wood burner."

    It is in the countryside, on a working farm. The windows face away from the farmhouse, ensuring privacy, but the owners are on the spot and we found them most helpful about queries. The floors are flagged downstairs and polished wood upstairs, so slippers are strongly recommended! There is an excellent 'batterie de cuisine'. So nice to stay in a cottage where it is assumed that you may want to COOK, and that provides scales, mixing bowls, a grater, baking dishes saucepans etc accordingly! We stayed in December and used the wood burner: it is extremely effective and not only heats the ground floor but warms the upstairs too. The cottage is about 4 miles from Ludlow by country roads. Ludlow (if you are not familiar with it) is a charming market town with a Norman castle, a 12th Century church and a wealth of half-timbered buildings. It provides good provision shopping and places to eat out, whether morning coffee or formal dining. The only slight problem we had was that our backs (which are no longer young) did not get on very well with the beds! The bedrooms themselves are snug and well-appointed.

  • "The accommodation at Stone House is first class - roomy, comfortable, and extremely clean."

    It offers a fully equipped kitchen with everything one needs to prepare your meals if one decides to stay in for the evening. Ludlow is easily reached in just 5 or 10 minutes by car and there are a number of National Trust properties close by for those that want a little bit of culture. All in all a very enjoyable place to spend a few days. Both my wife and I would strongly recommend it.

    Small outdoor seating area and parking right outside. Easy trip into Ludlow for shops, pubs and restaurants. Owner was very friendly and happy to chat about the local area. Warm and cosy from the central heating. There’s a wood burner too but we didn’t need it. Everything you could possibly want in the kitchen. The bathroom is downstairs which wasn’t a problem for us. The wifi wasn’t very reliable some days but I know the owner has had problems with his own too and has had people out to try to fix it. Great area and lots of things to visit. Would definitely recommend.

  • "We have hired many selfcatering lets over the years, and Stone House was definitely one of the very best."

    The old house has been restored sympathetically, and to a very high standard, and has everything needed for a comfortable stay in this lovely area. The house is very clean, comfortable, and warm with the added bonus of a cosy log burner, along with a generous basket of logs. I suppose the greatest test of a property is to ask yourself the question, would we stay at Stone House again ? The answer is a defenite yes.

    No noisy early starts here so you get to lie in. Very friendly owners and Pip the little border collie comes to visit every day. Ludlow a few miles away and plenty to see inthe surrounding countryside. If you want a little hideway in a very old well cared for cottage, warm and cosy then this is it. Not a noisy cow in sight, watch the woodpeckers on the birdfeeders and relax in your own little garden with a G&T, a glass of wine or a beer from Ludlows own brewery. Right next to the supermarkets so no excuse.!!

There is a portable heater available which can be used in the bathroom if needed. The stairs are not steep.
