We stayed at this fantastic B&B over the Jubilee weekend and had a great time. Rosemary and her Husband were amazing hosts who really looked after us. The breakfast that we had each morning was fantastic using all local products, which we really enjoyed. The location is great as it's really close to Ludlow centre and free parking is available. We would definitely go back to stay again as we had a really good experience overall!

Rosemary was a great host and nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely and in fact was more like a suite than a room, so great value for money, given its ideal location close to the centre of town and great restaurants like La Becasse. The house was delightful, full of interesting items and numerous nooks and crannies. Rosemary's breakfasts were excellent and kept us going for the whole day. I'd certainly recommend the Merchant House as a great place to stay.

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.

This is a charming house which oozes character and Rosemary is a warm and knowledgeable host. Rosemary took into account our dietary needs and all the breakfasts were great. The rooms and beds are very comfortable and the water pressure in the showers is fine. (I don't like wimpy showers!) One of the best things is the location as it's a short walk from the town centre yet very peaceful. There's a lovely pub next-door so you don't have to walk into town for dinner.

I would have given it a 4.5, but since that is not an option, a 5 it is!. Warm welcome from Rosemary, great breakfast, comfortable room. When she heard we liked green tea, she immediately added a number of green tea bags to our hospitality tray, and kept them stocked - it is the small things that make a huge difference. Parking vouchers are given out and you are unlikely not to get a spot near the house on Lower Corve Street as it is a little out of town so not a high demand area. Short walk up Corve Street to town (less than 10 minutes) and a pretty walk. Beautifully maintained and restored. Only reason for the 1/2 point deduction was the wi-fi - although a small property it did not work in two areas one of which was our bedroom which was a little inconvenient. Rosemary assisted as much as she could, but this could be easily and cheaply solved with an additional router which would address the limitations an older property like this has for connectivity. I would definitely return.
