“Lovely cosy cottage near Ludlow”
Reviewed 24 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We are so glad we booked this holiday cottage. It is a lovely cottage set in beautiful countryside. It is situated on a working farm however the area around the cottage is very quiet. It was lovely to be welcomed with a tea tray with home made cakes, a bottle of milk in the fridge and a lovely bottle of wine. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. This cottage has recently been renovated to a very high standard by the owners, it is in excellent order throughout with a lovely woodburner in the lounge area. Everywhere was spotless. The kitchen is well equipped with a good double oven and electric hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. The bathroom is downstairs and has a really powerful shower over the bath. There are two upstairs bedrooms both a good size, one double and one twin. There is a pretty small garden with a picnic bench, and there is a bird feeder in the garden where we enjoyed watching the constant stream of blue tits, great tits, robins and even on one occasion a woodpecker. There is good parking off road next to the cottage. The road outside the cottage is fairly quiet and from the cottage you cannot hear the traffic at all. The cottage is situated just three miles from Ludlow and conveniently, just before you arrive in Ludlow itself, there is a very good park and ride service which takes you right into the middle of the town for about the same price as a short stay in a car park. Ludlow is a very pretty town and is well known for its foodie reputation and it certainly lives up to this with some lovely delis and restaurants also the Ludlow Food Centre which is well worth visiting. Ludlow is situated about twenty/thirty minutes from the borders of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and over to Powys in Wales and is a great place for sightseeing and walking. All in all a great place to stay.

“What a treat!”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We loved the pictures of this cottage on line and were delighted to find that it was still available for our Easter break. We arrived late afternoon after a fairly long journey to find that the cottage was warm and welcoming - the wood burner had been lit, there was tea/coffee (milk in the fridge), home-made Easter buns and a bottle of wine on the table. There were Daffodils and other flowers in stone vases on the table and window sill. It was already clear that we were going to like this cottage a lot!!

We looked round the cottage and found that it was exactly as photographed (how many times have you arrived some where to find that the photos didn't somehow manage to tell the whole story?!). We loved the downstairs in particular; the open-plan living worked really well for us - we could cook, eat and relax in the same space. The inglenook fire and the bread-oven have their own lighting - in the evening we settled down to watch TV with the only light coming from the wood-burner and these lights - very cosy!! There is a full basket of dry wood on arrival, with kindling and fire-lighters too. Additional baskets of wood with kindling are available for £5 - a complete bargain compared to tiny nets of wet un-burnable wood from a garage!

The beds were extremely comfortable, with nice linen and bedspreads. Good quality (and in our case new!) towels were provided. The cottage has gas central heating controlled by a thermostat on the landing - we were warm at all times, and there was no threat of running out of fuel. There was plenty of hot water at all times - I know it's all 'small stuff' but we've been to places where these things couldn't be taken for granted and it made a big difference!

The Kitchen is well laid out with everything we needed to cook meals in the evening. In fact this was probably the best equipped kitchen we have ever found in a holiday cottage - there were even cutters - maybe some people are much more dedicated than us and make their own scones whilst on holiday!

The cottage is newly refurbished, everywhere is freshly painted and spotlessly clean. It felt like we were the first people to stay there (even though there are other reviews on the website we booked through). The cottage is situated on a farm and calves were born while we stayed! There are views of the meadows surrounding the cottage - although owing to the old-fashioned high windows, you can't see these once sat down!! The owners were very welcoming and friendly and gave us ideas for places we could visit.

In short we had a fantastic stay - we really loved the cottage and hope to come back one day!
