Ludlow is a market town on the River Teme in Shropshire, and is well known for its variety of attractive listed buildings, medieval streets and imposing castle. Ludlow also boasts a variety of good quality restaurants, along with pubs and shops serving fresh produce. There are art and craft shops, and the Linney Riverside Park has the opportunity to hire boats, has a play area and also a putting green. Ludlow is close to Shropshire attractions including Ironbridge, Church Stretton, the Severn Valley Railway and Cardingmill Valley.

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.

The Maltster's house was a lovely property in a great situation only 5 minutes walk from Ludlow town centre. The on road parking worked well and we were given plenty of parking permits to use if needed.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the owners for going out of their way to make our stay exceptional. We could not fault her property; it was beautiful, with lovely comfortable beds and crisp white linen. I would highly recommend Ludlow and The Maltster's House as somewhere to stay.

It was a pleasure for myself and three friends to stay in this very comfortable house where everything was provided for the comfort of guests. Ludlow was a very interesting town with so much historical background, beautiful buildings and we enjoyed the great variety of restaurants available.

We had an excellent weekend with the family, it lived up to all our expectations. The town was a very good base and there was more than we could manage to visit. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to any potential customers.

In an excellent location for exploring Ludlow and its surroundings on foot and a good base for exploring the area by car. The house is very well appointed and accommodated our party of 6 adults in great comfort. The wood burner in the sitting room is a great feature - and was most welcome after a day's walking in February! Parking was easy and grocery shopping two supermarkets was just round the corner. There were many places to eat and drink within easy walking - the Unicorn pub must be one of the best in the area and is only a 2 minute stroll away.

The house was so comfortable and warm! The fittings and furniture were of a very high standard. The upstairs bathroom was particularly amazing, we loved it! We are looking forward to going back and staying there again and again!

Well maintained, well equipped property in a central Ludlow location. It was a pleasure to return to the cottage throughout the week we spent there.

Stunning property. Absolutely gorgeous and perfect location for the centre of Ludlow and access via public transport. Would not have any reservations in recommending this property to anyone. We stayed as 3 couples with 2 under 2yr olds - it fitted us perfectly!

The town house was wonderful and ticked every box for me. Such a beautifully restored property and close to the town, with a Tesco conveniently situated two minutes away. The furniture, beds, bed linen and towels were of a high quality, as were the crockery and cutlery. I would not hesitate to recommend. We all loved it!

The cottage was lovely, spacious, and well fitted out for a group of our size. It was also in a nice location and the town was lovely. The owner was also lovely and helpful and we had an amazing New Years break.

The Maltsters house was great. Renovation of property was excellent. Everything was new and clean. We loved Ludlow, and the position of the property was ideal, walking distance to the town.

We rented the Maltster's House as a base for a group of friends doing a sponsored walk, and have to say the house is superb and far exceeded our expectations. The quality of the interior is fantastic and spotlessly clean, plus the location is ideal for exploring the picturesque market town of Ludlow.

Group stay with 9 girls for a weekend away to explore historic & charming Ludlow. The house is very welcoming with older character style & furnishings but with plenty of comfort. Spacious downstairs reception rooms with seating for all, workable kitchen, range of bedroom sizes including family size. 2 bathrooms (not 3 as advertised). WiFi not great but general signal in this town not good. Main road location with 4-5 spaces opposite which we did have a couple of permits for & Sunday free otherwise found council car park behind Tesco for 1st day so between town & property. Didn't actually use the small courtyard but looked nice & private but unsure what/where the 2 doors were for also similar with the extra staircase from 1st floor to attic?

The size of the rooms was great and the huge dining table was really useful. The location was perfect and Ludlow itself was a treat.
