This is a very strange review to write as its never been more true to say that one mans meat is another mans poison when it comes to the Castle Lodge..
To enter you knock on the door and the owner comes out , you pay £3 and he says "have a look around" Well if you engage with this man he is fascinating, he took us around the Lodge and told us the history of it all, then we were left to wander around alone and take in the building and the history ourselves.
Its true that there is no furniture or ornaments in the lodge just big empty rooms with big fire places but all the paneling has a history, the Fireplaces all have a story and if you ask him he will tell you. This building is crying out for some repair or to be taken over by the national trust...but to me this was the best building in Ludlow. The owner is just as interesting as the building, he was married to a prima Ballerina and he has pictures of his lovely deceased wife in one of the Rooms ,she was so beautiful and he has written a book about her .
You can only love this place if you accept it for what it is, a castle lodge of Tudor period steeped in history but with only the walls telling you its history.
