Baker's Retreat description

Holiday home
Baker's Retreat is a two-storey apartment in the heart of Ludlow. There is a double room and a twin room, along with a family bathroom. The kitchen has a dining area, and there is a cosy sitting room. Outside, guests have a private dining terrace with furniture which can be accessed via the French window in the kitchen. There is also a parking permit provided for free parking nearby. Baker's Retreat is full of character, with exposed beams and original trusses, and makes a wonderful romantic retreat for enjoying this beautiful medieval town.

Situated on the River Teme, in the outstanding countryside of the Welsh Marches, is the historic market town of Ludlow. Ludlow is a wonderful example of a medieval settlement and its ancient street patterns remain almost intact to this day. The town also hosts approximately five hundred listed buildings, making a settlement full of picturesque streets and providing a beautiful backdrop to the regular street markets. Showcasing a range of local goods, these gatherings are held in the shadow of Ludlow's famous castle and supply items from cheeses and fresh produce to books and local crafts. With a number of Michelin Starred restaurants in the town, as well as numerous tea-shops, pubs and inns, there's plenty to see and do in the diverse local area.

A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.

An excellent property full of character and upgraded to an excellent standard. We had a really relaxing stay, the best recommendation I can give is if we ever return to Shropshire we will look no further than Bakers Retreat!

We have just spent a wonderful week at this apartment and can honestly say we were very happy we chose this place over other places we looked at. Lovely big lounge equipped with tasteful furnishings,kitchen had everything we needed, we only used the double bedded room with comfiest bed and high quality bedding but the twin bed room was so nice too. Bakers Retreat was full of character and we really didn't want to leave to go home.The cafe below was very nice too having enjoyed breakfast there. We loved Ludlow with its beautiful shops,brilliant market 5 days a week and pubs and restaurants. Lots to do in the area with beautiful countryside and plentiful walks. We would return to Ludlow and look no further than Bakers Retreat .

Absolutely superb accommodation. Extremely well equipped. About 1 minutes walk to centre of Ludlow. Loved everything about this spacious place. Really, really great. The discovery of a welcome pack in the fridge was very well received. The shortbreads were delicious. Just a lovely place to stop.

Inglenook cottage is a little gem. Tucked away in a quiet location but within an easy walk of the town centre. Well equipped and spotlessly clean it had everything we needed - although a dressing table would be a good addition. Having parking was an added bonus as this is often difficult to find in Ludlow so all in all a great place to stay.

We stayed at the bakers retreat for a week in July 2016 - If you are looking for a relaxing break in a place which has modern comforts in a building full of character with oak beams etc then this is the place to be. The best recommendation I can put forward is if we ever visit Shropshire again for a holiday we will look no further than the bakers retreat - Excellent value for money with excellent facilities. With regards the place I would say if you struggle with steep stairs then look elsewhere - We managed easily but an older person would need to take care on the stairs to the bedrooms- the official description does make this clear and you should consider this. The beds were extremely comfy , The temperature was maintained nice and warm throughout our stay , The kitchen is very well fitted out with fan oven gas hob, even a washer and dishwasher ( although we didn't use the last two ourselves) there is no microwave but there are pans available. The living room is fitted out with 2 modern comfy sofas and a large screen TVs with free view Wi if was said to be intermittent as it is shared with the cafe below however I found no problems at any time - The cafe closes around 6pm so the wifi signal is strong in the evening There is a roof top patio great for early evening drinks!. The bathroom looks reasonably new - The shower is great with good pressure and plenty of hot water. if you like a bath the tub is very big and does take a while to fill. The owner provides lot of towels which are very large . The owner welcomed us with a loaf of bread, milk etc in the fridge , fresh flowers on the dining table and the bonus of a parking permit for free parking on the car park nearby ( 3 - 4 mins walk) there is a "budgens" supermarket 50 yards away ( used to be the coop) so no need to bring loads of food with you. A great place to stay - I thoroughly recommend the bakers retreat
