Restored to the highest standards, this Grade II listed cottage is situated in a conservation area near the medieval Broad Gate. Much of the original character of the building (exposed beams and brick and timber framework) remains and is combined with tasteful furnishings and colour schemes. The cottage is only a few minutes' walk both from the centre of Ludlow, with its Norman castle, and from the River Teme, where footpaths lead over Whitcliffe, Ludlow's common land since the 13th century.

Often described as the perfect historic town, Ludlow has nearly 500 listed buildings and the early medieval street pattern survives almost intact. Of particular note are St. Laurence's church and the Feathers Hotel, with its ornate timber-framed facade. The annual Ludlow Festival, the highlight of which is an open-air Shakespeare play in the Castle grounds, is held in late June/early July. In September there is a Food & Drink festival and in November a Medieval Fair. Ludlow is a market town and has a fine range of shops (including antiques, books, art and crafts), tea rooms and restaurants.

Within easy reach of the town are many historic sites. These include Stokesay Castle, (English Heritage) Croft Castle, and Berrington Hall (both National Trust) and the Ironbridge Gorge, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Offa's Dyke, the Long Mynd, the Malvern Hills, the Wye Valley, Shrewsbury, Hereford and Worcester are within an hour's drive. Further afield, The Cotswolds, Wales and Stratford-upon-Avon may also be easily reached by car.

Sorry, no pets.
