We stayed 2 nights with Rosemary at the Merchant House. Delightful! Good location close to the centre of the old part of town, a very pleasant 5 minute walk to the farmers' market, Mr Underhill's, La Becasse and so much more. the room was very big, with new bathroom and some of the fluffiest towels I've ever used. The breakfast however is really worth mentioning. Rosemary excelled at preparing something special each morning to compliment the usual English cooked breakfast. Home poached fruit, lovingly prepared (and segmented) fresh grapefruit and ginger syllabub. Wow. As for Ludlow, a lovely town in a lovely part of England. Do yourself a favour and find an excuse to visit.
