About Us – Holiday Cottage Ludlow
A right royal welcome awaits you at The Dairy and The Byre, recently converted, luxury 18th Century barns adjoining the owners house. The accommodation is on the ground floor with only shallow steps to the front doors.
Surrounded by an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) in an elevated position halfway between Ludlow and Church Stretton and 1 mile from Craven Arms they are very cosy, with underfloor heating and lpg fires.
The self catering holiday cottages, each with one double bedroom/ensuite shower room, are south facing on a level site with a large parking area and secure garden. Under a mellow Welsh slate roof they have waney edged timber in the local style, exposed stone walls, vaulted ceilings with many original oak beams, oak kitchen units, slate floors in the living areas and carpeted bedrooms.
There are a lot of famous attractions and places to visit nearby so you will never be left short of things to do and places to explore when you stay in our Holiday Cottage in Ludlow.
The unsurpassable 12th Century fortified manor house of Stokesay Castle is close by and Craven Arms, one mile away is home to South Shropshire’s award winning Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre and the Land of Lost Content Museum. It also has a supermarket, shops, post office and bank and a main line railway station on the Manchester – Cardiff route.
BBC TV’s Victorian Farm location is just a few miles to the north and Ironbridge Gorge with its’ ten museums is eastwards along Wenlock Edge.
Much Wenlock, a scenic country drive away, was recently named by Sunday Times and Savills Estate Agents, as one of the best British villages to live in. Much Wenlock is the birthplace of William Penny Brookes, recognised as the founding father of the modern Olympic Games. The Wenlock Olympian Games are still held in July each year and the joint Mascot of the 2012 London Olympic Games was named Wenlock.
Right outside the gate to Highgrove and into Long Lane, the old Turnpike road is now a quiet byway and turning in either direction leads to wonderful walks or cycle rides up to Wart Hill and beyond or down to the River Onny meadows.
