Richards Castle is a quiet village about 10 mins easy drive from Ludlow and very close to a lot of attractions, great scenery, walks etc. Ludlow is attractive and historic and, particularly on Market Days, is a great experience. The Granary is very well set up, has lovely views across the countryside and is warm and comfortable with everything we needed for a great week's stay. Jane and Julian were very friendly and welcoming and we enjoyed being able to interact with their horse, pigs, sheep and chickens in the paddocks adjacent - it made for a very relaxing environment and provided a real country feel. The Sawyers Arms, about 5 mins away on the A49, has excellent food - we had a great lingering lunch there. The Granary is highly recommended - we'd readily return.
Cottage was fully equipped and all furnishings are to a very high standard, so comfortable. Loved Ludlow, small independent traders and a daily market. Didn't manage to do as much walking as we had planned, due to the the weather, but amazing countryside. Will return...
Seldom does one find a gem such as this. It is in the perfect location for exploring South Shropshire / North Herefordshire if you can be prised away from this delightful cottage. The Granary is a converted farm building offering truly 5 star accommodation. Everything we needed was available with high quality fittings and fixtures throughout. Even if the weather turns sour, as it did occasionally for us, staying in is a pleasure. The family live next door but despite their having farm animals to tend our holiday lie-ins were never disturbed. A most enjoyable and relaxing week.
The Granary is perfectly placed to explore Ludlow and nearby castles and gardens. First class accommodation, spotlessly clean with top end facilities such as a large Walk in shower and a Smeg fridge. It has a delightful balcony with lovely views and you can relax in perfect peace. Jane, one of the owners was welcoming yet left us alone to enjoy our holiday. This is a real gem and one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in. I would certainly recommend it!!
Granary Cottage ticked all the boxes for us, perfection...décor and attention to detail is stunning, we enjoyed sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine (or two!) taking in the animals and amazing view, we can not praise this property enough, a nice welcome from Jane, lovely fresh flowers and a very generous welcome pack, we have every intention of returning to Granary Cottage soon, thank you very much for a super stay.
Great location and really nice accommodation in old farm block with lots of privacy and gorgeous views. Stayed in February but nice and warm throughout. Also owners very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend :)
My husband and I booked The Granary for some much needed rest and relaxation. Views were really important as well as having a nice place.
The granary is just what we wanted, gorgeous unspoilt views in the countryside, and furnished to an excellent standard. The owner had a thoughtful arrival basket of treats waiting for us. The place is modern, comfortable and fully stocked.
We spent a lot time reading & eating on the balcony which looks out onto the Shropshire hills.
There are a number of pubs within walking distance and Ludlow is only a few miles away. We brought our bicycles and would recommend exploring the countryside.
If you are looking for a quiet or special break we would definitely recommend The Granary!
