Whitfield House
Ranked #5 of 48 Ludlow B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

We had a really restful stay at this lovely b&b. Only 10min walk from the centre of Ludlow it is well placed for exploring the area. When we arrived we got a warm welcome with a nice cup of tea and advice as to the nearest pub where we could eat and was even taken in the evening. We walked back after and discovered that it was quite near. Breakfast was lovely. Local food cooked and presented well and eaten in a room with a log fire and overlooking the countryside. I would highly recommend this b&b and we shall certainly be back

Four of us took two rooms for 5 nights here, as a base for walking in the area. From the start we were made to feel welcome in the house. We had to swap rooms for one night due to another reservation (but we knew of this in advance so were expecting it) but Andrew helped us move. One night we ate in with food from the excellent Ludlow Food Centre (up the A49 towards Shrewsbury) and enjoyed the ability to do this is a B&B. The other nights it was a short and welcome walk into town to use one of the excellent choice of restaurants there. Sleep quality and bed comfort were exemplary in 'Crickets' and 'Mortimer' (the rooms where we stayed). And you have a great view of the castle from the back rooms in the house. Breakfasts were excellent too. If you like a cooked version, the chickens lay daily! We couldn't have had more friendly hosts, both of whom share the task with other jobs including raising a family. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The rooms vary in size so talk with Sarah and/or Andrew about your needs.

Nothing was too much trouble. Tea on arrival, 'extras' in the room (biscuits, chocolate, fresh milk, boot drainer, shared frig space). Breakfast was beautifully cooked. Really comfortable - thank you!

We stayed overnight on our way home from a 10 day holiday in the south of Wales. Andrew came out to greet us as we pulled onto the circular drive. We were shown to our room-The Mortimer which was beautiful, with a spacious en-suite & both with all mod cons. The bay window looked out over the garden, fields & the castle!!! The beautiful house has been sympathetically restored & it was a treat to stay there.

Breakfast was the best we had ever tasted (& we have sampled many). The local ingredients & fresh eggs were excellent all served in the oak panelled dining room. Nothing was too much trouble for Sarah & both the hosts made us feel more than welcome.

The location was quiet, relaxing but only a 15 minute stroll to the castle (in the centre of Ludlow).We would recommend staying here-it was outstanding.

Booked a few days away for some relaxation and decided on the old market town of Ludlow. The location of the above was spot on. 5 to 10 mins stroll to the town. The accommodation was excellent, clean, tidy and had fantastic views of the castle. The hosts were fantastic and I would recommend this little gem.

This is the best bed & breakfast we ever have stayed in. Sarah gave us such a fabulous welcome, making us a pot of Earl Grey tea immediately on our arrival. We were impressed by her genuine warmth & concern for us. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The quality of the breakfast was truly exceptional, my wife particularly enjoyed the fresh fruit on offer, while I tucked into the deliciously cooked breakfast with its fresh ingredients. Not to mention the prize-winning marmalade on our toast at the end. Our only regret was that we could only stay one night as we were on our way to a wedding in Chester. We would heartily recommend Whitfield House & look forward to returning for a longer break.

Room Tip: all rooms are equally good
