Area Situated on the River Teme amongst the countryside of the Welsh Marches is the market town of Ludlow. With nearly 500 listed buildings, Ludlow's medieval street pattern remains almost intact, providing a unique backdrop for the town's street markets. These events take place beneath the impressive castle and showcase a range of local goods - from cheeses and fresh produce to books and crafts. Ludlow is renowned for its shopping, with a number of high quality antique and craft shops, along with several Michelin-starred restaurants, numerous tea-shops and pubs. The castle itself is over 900 years old and the Linney Riverside Park provides boat hire, a putting green and children's play area. Ludlow is within easy reach of Church Stretton, Shrewsbury and Hereford, as well as popular attractions such as Ironbridge Gorge, Severn Valley Railway and Berrington Hall.
Region 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.

Ludlow is a super town and Harris House is a short 5 minute walk to the centre.
The house was exactly as described and very well equipped in the kitchen.
The surrounding area is beautiful, eg Long Mynd and Shrewsbury.
This was a great property.. It was close enough to walk into Ludlow Town Centre, with the added advantage of off street parking. The property itself is very spacious and well equipped and we would be more than happy to stay there again.
Our third visit to this cottage.. It cannot be faulted. We have used Sykes about 9 or ten times and never been disappointed
Harris House is such an easy place to stay and it feels so spacious.. We have stayed twice and have booked again for next year. It is brilliant for parking and very convenient for getting to Ludlow.
Harris House is an excellent holiday house in an excellent location.. This was our second holiday based at Harris House and all that anyone needs to know about the property has already been said in the reviews below. Ludlow town is a gem in itself and within walking distance. The train station is nearer and only 7 minutes walk away and we used the train for visits on our 2 holidays to: Worcester, Hereford, Aberystwyth. We also took advantage of Heart of Wales Circular Day Ranger. This ticket takes a circular route. We departed and arrived back at Ludlow travelling via Craven Arms, the rural 100 mile Heart of Wales Line with its spectacular scenery and 29 stations, Llanelli, Cardiff, Abergavenny. We also visited the National Trust properties: Croft Castle and Berrington Hall.
Ludlow is a lovely place to visit, for walks, eclectic shops and pubs and a very relaxing break. Harris House is everything you have read already, superbly well equipped, comfy beds, lots of room, every consideration covered. Loved cooking here as I wasn't short of any equipment (with most self catering places they've missed something unusual). 10 minutes maximum walk to town and walks beyond but still extremely peaceful.
A lovely house in a great location.. The house had everything you could possibly need to have a great holiday which we did. We have had a number of holidays with Sykes and have always been delighted Harris House could not be faulted in any way
As always very good..
An unusual property which is really well equipped with spacious rooms, and 10 minutes walk from Ludlow.. The town has plenty to offer and the surrounding countryside is spectacular. Will definitely return.
This house is a really lovely place to go on holiday.. It had everything you would need and was extremely spacious and comfortable and very well equipped. The garden was fantastic, I met the gardener and had a nice chat with him about the plants. It's a great place to sit out in on a sunny day and even has some herbs you can use for cooking. We would definitely recommend Harris House to anyone wanting to visit Ludlow.
The local area is great, it has got castles, a market, museums and good walks, as well as all the local amenities and a market and good restaurants. We went to Hay on Wye for the day which was absolutely wonderful for people who love books. Also my partner found a great vinyl shop in Ludlow that he says is worth visiting if that is your thing.
Overall we would recommend this holiday cottage without hesitation, as well as the area. It would suit families with younger children and older family groups as well.
Harris House was a superb spacious well appointed holiday address within 10 minute walk to Ludlow centre . Quiet location with lovely garden for relaxing in .
One big benifit was off road parking and easy access to A49 for travelling to Other places of interest eg . Stokesay Castle .
The property was first class, couldn't think of anything to complain about.. Near to town for eating out, drink etc;
Quiet location (until we arrived)
Good location for walking
Proximity to Ludlow meant a short walk to all amenities, restaurants, pubs, and railway station.. House was immaculately clean and tastefully furnished.
Perfect holiday let, everything we could have hoped for.. So clean and comfortable.
Such a great time we advised our travel agent in South Australia to recommend Harris House to future travellers.
So Glad we found Harris House, Ludlow.. Wanted to take my 83 year old father away for a relaxing week as he had been poorly. Luckily we picked the Early May Bank holiday that was the hottest on Record.
Our family has never rented a holiday home before so we really did not know what to expect.
I am now afraid, because our expectations were exceeded, Harris House has now set the Gold standard bar for future holiday lets in other destinations. In fact – we may not go elsewhere and carry on going to Ludlow every year because this house had everything and our time spent there was lovely and relaxing.
The owners sent a lovely email a few weeks before our due date (05.05.18 - 12.05.18), and from the tone of that you could tell that nothing was a problem – just to contact them had you any concerns.
I want to repeat everything everyone has complimented and mentioned on the sykes cottage website, i.e Spotless, quiet location, stones throw away from Ludlow town, handy to A49 to reach other desitnations, household kit / appliances to very good standard, everything to hand, everything thought of.
It also felt actually felt very homely and very peaceful. You did not feel out of place or scared to move. My father has difficulties with his mobility - but this house was perfect for anyone with these issues as everything was spaced out and it was not cluttered, so nothing to bang into and the stairs had a solid banister to help him.
The shower was a power shower – so that made me very happy, and the view when doing the dishes out the window – money could not buy. Even doing dishes made me happy that week.
It truly is a great place to stay.
One of the nicest cottages we have ever stayed in.. So clean and well equipped in every way. Everything was well explained. It was a very convenient location for access to the town by foot so no fighting for parking spots. We have already booked for next year.
As has been said before Harris House is an exceptional property with all the household kit one could wish for..
We found Harris House spotless and it had everything you needed for a lovely holiday.. It was in a quiet area but close to all the amenities and in easy reach of the major towns and villages.
We would have no hesitation about booking this property again for our next trip to beautiful Shropshire.
Harris House was beautiful in every way so spacious and comfortable we felt at home straight away.
We had great weather while there so took advantage of the well kept back garden.
Ludlow is a great bustling market town with so many places on the doorstep to explore. We look forward to returning and sampling more of it's fabulous cafes, pubs and restaurants.
Extremely well equipped and so spacious.. So very much provided that we didnt expect but the one thing that was missing and would have been most welcome was a pint of milk. Still, we didn't have far to walk to remedy the situation. And considering all that was provided it seems a small point to mention.
The details sent by the owner were most comprehensive and everything was as he described.
This is a very comfortable and well equipped house in a quiet area of Ludlow only a short walk from the town and the station; it is ideal for walkers as there are lovely walks in Ludlow by the castle and along the river.. There are many attractions a short drive away, e.g. Croft Castle, Stokesay Castle, views from the Clee Hills, Bridgnorth and Arley Arboretum. We travelled by train to Shrewsbury and to explore Church Stretton and walk on The Long Mynd. We had sunny Autumnal weather and enjoyed a fabulous holiday.
Harris house was exceptional with regard to how well it was equipped.. It had everything you would normally expect and then some. I would not hesitate recommending it to anyone visiting Ludlow. Our main reason for visiting was the food fair and it was also very good.
Booking was easy and the cottage and everything about it was excellent
Fantastic cottage.. Spacious, clean, well equipped and comfortable. Would recommend.
Lovely cottage in a quiet location but within walking distance of the town.. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Cottage was very well equipped and so homely and welcoming .
We will be returning in the near future.
This lovely, quite and peaceful house had everything we needed. It is very clean and comfortable. The cottage has beautiful views and is in a great location for exploring the area.
Harris House felt like home, and is in an excellent location to walk into Ludlow to visit restaurants etc.
Top class accommodation in an interesting area that we had not previously visited.
The cottage was superb all round, a really fantastic place in a friendly neighbourhood with lots of places in easy reach and a good train service. Fantastic.
Harris House was cosy, comfortable, spacious and light. The house is conveniently located for the town centre and all the local amenities. There is plenty of off-road parking which is handy. Ludlow is a beautiful little town. Great independent shops and restaurants with friendly, helpful staff. There is plenty to do and see locally.
We stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate a family birthday. Five adults - lots of room.
We couldn't fault it in any way whatsoever and were glad of the parking space and the easy 10 minute walk into Ludlow
We spent a fantastic week in Ludlow in this house. It is just a few minutes walk from central Ludlow, a beautiful ,small town in south Shropshire, surrounded by countryside perfect for exploring and walking. The house has enough space for three cars parking. Three bedrooms fitted out with wonderfully comfortable beds and duvrets. The kitchen has plenty of space to eat in, is perfect for every level of chef or cook and a great view from the widow to the hills and church. A formal dining room and a very comfortable lounge go with this house as well as a great garden . Yes we loved this space. The owner was always available to us by phone and though we did not meet with him sounded very helpful. A highlight of our visit to Britain.
This was spacious and welcoming accommodation in a quiet area close to the town centre. It was very well equipped and we enjoyed being in it!
We stayed at Harris House to celebrate my Mother's 60th Birthday with 3 generations of family. The property was excellently equipped, there wasn't a single thing we didn't have available to us. Bedding and towels were included as was washing up liquid, hand soap and basic kitchen essentials such as tea, coffee, salt, pepper etc. The owner offers use with a request to replace what you finish off. The kitchen had everything we needed plus more. The property is very spacious and great for all ages, lots of room for an under 2 to explore with stair gates, high chair and travel cot provided.
Short walk to Ludlow town centre, with lots of cafe's, pubs, restaurants and independent shops.
Would definitely stay again.
A lovely place to stay, a very relaxing holiday.
The house was excellent and very comfortable, we could not speak more highly of it. It was in a quiet location a short walk to the town and was also five minutes to the railway station. We had some lovely days out both in Shropshire and Hereford, a lovely part of the country.
The house was excellent, well equipped and very comfortable. It was a short walk to the town, with its many shops and restaurants. The railway station is five minutes walk away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely house, which is in a quiet location.
