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.

Another brilliant stay at Manor Cottage.. As in the past everything was perfect. the only reason I have not ticked the "Exceeded Expectations" is that I
all ready knew what to expect and wasn't disappointed!
Mr Moorcroft, September 2020
Our main comment is that unlike most holiday rentals there was no booklet explaining how things work.. For example, it took a while to sort the oven and we needed to get help with the TV. But we did have a comfortable stay, with parking and easy access to town and surrounding area.

The cottage was booked for four adults and a child, however there were only four chairs at the dining table which made meal times difficult as did a shortage of cutlery, and wine glasses..
Mrs Wall, September 2020
Clean comfortable and we'll equipped cottage within a five minute walk of glorious ludlow centre.. Safe enclosed outside area enjoyed by meg our dog. Would visit again and recommend to family and friends
Mrs Kalton, August 2020
It's close enough to stroll into town and to use for a base for excursions by car (avoid going through town centre if you can, it gets busy).. Good sized kitchen area, well equipped.
Mr Ashton, February 2020
Owner came to check all ok at arrival and also at end.. Lovely personal touch. Will book again. Very well equipped and extremely clean. Excellent.
Rodway-johnson, December 2019
Lovely place, easy to find and great to have parking so close to the centre
Dr Scaramuzza, November 2019
Clean, comfortable, convenient
Mr Mellor, October 2019
Cottage is cosy and warm with all mod cons and some lovely welcoming touches.. Would definitely recommend as a base for exploring this beautiful town and county. Has off road parking plus a fully enclosed patio for dogs. Thank you Phil for checking everything was ok and for a really good stay!
`Holiday was great, cottage was as good if not better than last time with the addition of a dishwasher and new fridge with freezer..
Lovely house, easy to access, easy to park, well considered faciities, comfy bed, warm and cosy and walking distance from the town..
Ludlow was as lovely as ever.. Manor Cottage is very nice and easily accommodated 4 adults and 2 dogs. 10 mins walk to town. On a busy road and near the railway line, but dong be put off by this as it wasn’t noisy at all
Manor Cottage was very clean, comfortable and well equipped.. Situation was great - an easy walk into town but with the benefit of generous parking space. The owner, Phil, was a considerate and welcoming host. We would definitely return to Ludlow and Manor Cottage.
Lovely Cottage that had everything needed.. felt at home straight away The owner Phil was helpful and friendly.
We had a great week. Ludlow was lovely and plenty to do in the surrounding area. Will certainly visit again.
The cottage inside was lovely although could be improved with a larger fridge or fridge freezer .. The setting at Ludlow is ideal as close to all amenities, however the outside area is just a yard of flags not a pleasant outlook and furniture was a picnic table with seats attached . It could be improved with nicer outdoor furniture some pot plants etc . My dog didn’t like flags and struggled to toilet so bare this in mind if you have fussy dogs like ours . The owner is very pleasant also.
Table and chairs in the garden would have been better than a picnic bench and .... Table and chairs in the garden would have been better than a picnic bench and maybe update the TV system other than that lovely
This was our 2nd stay at Manor cottage (this time for 2 weeks) and equally enjoyable.. Will be happy to go back again in the future. Great location for exploring other places and situated within a short distance of walking into Ludlow with its lovely buildings, shops and market.
We think the cottage actually undersold itself.. Good location, whilst on a mainish road there was not an issue with traffic noise. Cottage was larger than portrayed,extremely clean and well equipped.
The owner was friendly without being intrusive, and it was nice knowing he was around if needed.
Firstly great directions from owner on finding cottage always good start. Parking for three cars brilliant saving on car park charges and not too far walk into Ludlow, 10-15 minutes, slight hill.
Bright and full of light, nice sized kitchen, cozy lounge a toilet downstairs and bathroom upstairs. Heating on if needed and nice towel rail in bathroom. Plenty hot water, bath and shower available. Provided bedding and towel but if visited again would bring own pillow as quite hard, personal taste not criticism. Could have done with a spare extra towel as 5 nights.
Brilliant to chill out in evening with feet up, recliner settee, after returning town. Great to have freedom to come and go as please.
Owner Phil very helpful popped round on first night explained how use TV Freeview bit tricky.
Great base for exploring Shropshire, went to Ironbridge, Church Stretton, NT properties and Hereford.
So many wonderful restaurants to choose from in Ludlow and all accessible by foot so even better. Brilliant to discover Queens(foodie pub) up top hill.
If intend to do cooked breakfast bring own oil and ketchup everything else provided.
Directions to property were spot on.. Cottage is on a 'main' road but we were never disturbed. Lovely bright kitchen with everything could need. Comfy lounge with leather recliner settees and big TV. We had few problems getting Freeview to work but Phil the owner was on hand. Really convenient for Ludlow town just up hill 10 mins most and downhill way back.
3 bedrooms and bathroom plus downstairs toilet. Heating on when cold and as Famous Five say lashings of hot water. Great to relax after hard days touristing! Great base for Ironbridge, Much Wenlock, Church Stretton and beyond.
So many scrumptious restaurants in Ludlow, great Thai and India, Pizza and really convenient Queens (pub) need book.
I could go on praising this cottage and Ludlow but want to go back don't want be all booked up.
Owner was close at hand, pleasant and very helpful.. The backyard was rather dreary. The place would have been considerably improved if there were some nice pot plants, particularly as the cottage was located in a not very pretty part of the town.
Lovely cottage with all amenities provided.. Short walk to the centre of Ludlow, which is a lovely place to spend a long weekend.
Cottage has private parking and is dog friendly. Highly recommended!
Lovely week away.. Cottage very well looked after and very comfortable. Parking was excellent and access to the town very convenient. Even though on a main road in to the town the cottage was very peaceful. Ludlow itself is very beautiful with great markets and shops. There are many dog friendly pubs with beautiful log fires and good food. All in all more than excellent.
It is a 10 min walk into town up a hill - quite manageable unless you are not 100% fit so worth being aware of
Manor cottage was a nice clean base for the delights of Ludlow and Shropshire in general.. No complaints.
Shropshire a lovely place to visit.. Ludlow very interesting town and mostly dog friendly which is important to us as a family!
Marvellous walks and scenery on the doorstep.
The cottage was lovely just what we expected 3 bedrooms s good parking did not use the car until Thursday .. Lovely town plenty to do.
Ray & Pat
The location of Manor Cottage was ideal, as it was easy to get into the centre of Ludlow. The cottage was well equipped with up to date facilities, especially the bathroom which looked quite new.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Manor Cottage. The house was very cosy and we liked being so close to Ludlow town centre with its shops and lovely pubs. Everything was good!
The property was beautifully clean and well equipped. In a great location for Ludlow.
Really lovely holiday home. From the start, everything was great with a lovely relaxing atmosphere that made the holiday. Everything was there that we needed; all aspects were to a very high standard. We very much hope to come back next year.
The location of the cottage was excellent. The fact the owner was next door if any thing had gone wrong was comforting.
Booked the cottage for 4 nights for short break in July. Ideally placed just outside Ludlow Town Centre, only a 10 minute walk away, with everything you could need. We didn't use the car at all when we were there, preferring to walk in and around the town.
Phil, the owner, was great and it was reassuring he was only next door if we had any issues, which we didn't.
I'll certainly be booking again as there is so much more to explore in this area and this cottage is the ideal base.
A cosy cottage that is light, bright and cheerful with a great location and the owner is next door. We really enjoyed our holiday there.
Enjoyed every minute there.
Another wonderful holiday in Ludlow. The weather was almost tropical at times despite it being on Easter. This was our second visit to Manor Cottage, and it certainly did not disappoint. Located within easy walking distance to the town centre and all its many delights, the owner could not have done any more to make us feel welcome. Given the number of dogs that one sees in and around Ludlow it was surprising to discover that Manor Cottage was only one of two properties prepared to accept our two four-legged friends. For this alone, we were most grateful. Who knows, it will be hard to find anywhere better!
Fantastic location and wonderful cottage.
A very cosy cottage in an excellent edge of town position.
The location was superb. The cottage, as it was so well equipped felt like home and very cosy. The owner introduced himself and told us where he was if we needed him.
Having read some of the other reviews I realise that most of what I wanted to say had already been written. However on the trip home it came to me that I had not written in the Visitors Book so I am hoping to redress that oversight here. We were a small party of myself my brother and my dog. We all felt at home immediately. The cottage was beautiful and even though there was a busy road and a railway nearby neither effected us. We did not make much use of the large enclosed yard, but on our next trip we intend to have a BBQ using local sausages & meats. A very enjoyable stay, beautiful surroundings, wonderful cottage, pleasant unobtrusive owner all made for a truly terrific holiday.
Well appointed, very comfortable cottage within easy walking distance to Ludlow. Ideally situated, with plenty to see and do around the Shropshire area. Highly recommended.
A great base for enjoying all that Ludlow and the surrounding area offer. Manor Cottage is comfortable, clean and well equiped and only a hop, skip and jump from the town centre which means that you can forget the car and walk to all the great cafes and restaurants.
The cottage is very dog friendly with tiles from the front to back door and a secure, fenced backyard. Ludlow also has a number of bars and eateries that permit you to take your dog inside. If you are not a dog owner don't let the fact that this property allows pets to put you off, there are no doggy smells.
Proximity of property to the centre of Ludlow - a lovely place.
We loved this cottage, it had everything we needed to for a great week in Shropshire. The location was ideal, just a few minutes walk into Ludlow where there is an abundance of restaurants, cafes, shops, pubs, walks and a castle ! The cottage offered comfort, warmth, plenty of hot water and all the bits and bobs you need except for a set kitchen turning tongues - which bought at the discount shop in town. We hope to stay again in 2015.
Fabulous cottage - homely, warm, high specification, ideally located, and parking too. Will definitely return.
All positive in every way. A great cottage, and perfectly thought through by the owner, who turned out to be very nice and extremely helpful and friendly.
Great location and lovely cottage. A real home from home.
Cottage in right location for us and was exactly as described. We also met the owner who lived next door, but we had complete privacy and we felt that the cottage was ours. No notices saying don't do this and that and the fresh flowers were appreciated.
It was a very relaxing week in a lovely location. The cottage made an ideal base for exploring the area. It was well located within a short walking distance of the town.
Lovely comfortable cottage, superbly well placed to walk into Ludlow. Lovely warm welcome from the owner who lives next door but very unobtrusive throughout the test of the visit. Marvelous!
The landlord Phil is wonderful. The location in a few minutes from town. The cottage is very comfortable and immaculate. Off road parking for 3 cars. Garden furnature to sit outside. Quiet location. If I could live there I would!
Lovely location, great Cottage and very modern, we felt very comfortable and at home.
This is the third time we have stayed at this home. The owner couldn't do enough for us. So central to shops and everything is so beautifully looked after. Fab, beautiful place to visit. Furniture top quality.
The cottage is well appointed and 5 minutes from town centre. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything you need for a weeks stay.
Perfect location for viewing the surrounding areas. Good choice of restaurants etc, many within walking distance. Would love to go back again, so much to see - a week did not seem enough.
Lovely and relaxing despite the wet weather!
Stayed for a week in April. The cottage was comfortable, warm and quiet with everything we needed. Everything worked well and the sofas were exceptionally comfortable for evenings in. The owner was friendly and helpful and all arrangements worked flawlessly. Highly recommended.
Comfortable beds with crisp white bedlinen, a sun filled kitchen, a modern bathroom with a deep bath, a cosy snug for evenings and off street parking.
We were so pleased with this rental, we could walk into town, the dogs were safe in a fenced back garden and parking was never a problem. The house itself is detached and has been modernised to a high standard. The electrical goods were Bosch or equivalent high quality, a digital radio and a good barbeque were amongst the extras that the owner had no obligation to supply but had, which seemed typical of the generous feel of the house. I hope to stay there again.
Ludlow! Lovely area for walking and exploring. Very pleased with cottage.
Clean, warm and inviting. Good that the owner popped in from next door to say hello. Would return and recommend.
The location was great! Eight minutes to walk to town and six ,imutes to walk back down the hill. Car parking space was a real boon as there was no other off-street parking nearby.The house was modern, delightfully decorated and well equipped. Given the proximity of the road and railway,our fears about noise were unfounded.
The linen was spotless and the beds looked very pretty and the bed we used was very comfortable.
We had some difficultywith the low ,modern settees but we discussed this with the owner, who lived in the adjacent bungalow and he agreed that they should be changed.
Ludlow is a beautiful place and we look forward to returning -hopefully to Manor Cottage!
An excellent location and overall a very comfortable property that is equipped with everything you need.
The location is ideal for anyone wishing to take advantage of everything Ludlow has to offer.
Really nice clean cottage. Only a five minute walk into the centre of Ludlow. Owner was very helpfull, whilst not intruding at all.Lots of National Trust properties nearby. Lots of lovely restaurants in Ludlow. All the locals very friendly. Would definetley stay again. One of the nicest cottages we have stayed in.
The cottage was very comfortable and in a good location for visiting the surrounding countryside which was lovely. The walk into the town for our meal in the evening was very easy, only 10 minutes up the road. We thought Ludlow was a really nice town, lots to see.
Good proximity to Ludlow and the surrounding area. Excellent walking from the doorstep and the shopping in town is great! It included bakers, butchers, deli's and a farmers market for fresh local produce.
We enjoyed Fantastic views. Ludlow is full of history.
A lovely clean cottage in a good position for the town centre of Ludlow.
Great cottage, very clean and comfortable and only 5 minute walk into centre of Ludlow.
Owner friendly and very helpful.
Would not hesitate in booking for another visit.
The house was excellent, the rooms very clean and comfortable.
I would reccomend it to each of my friends and neighbous, if they ask me for.
Over the last 2 years I have rented either houses or flats on at least 5 occasions. Without doubt Manor Cottage was the best and therefore a significant contribution towards an excellent holiday. I was particularly impressed with the attention to detail shown in both design of the building and its fittings (better than my own home). It was also a nice touch for the owner to call round to check how we had enjoyed our stay.
Large, airy, pleasant, good size and comfortable. Accommodation was well situated. Good parking walking distance to centre for meals, shops etc. Good choice of places to eat all of a high standard. Ludlow was an excellent base for exploring other areas.
A great cottage and the owner was very kind and helpful. Ludlow is fantastic to explore and it was a great base for days out around Shropshire.
The cottage was within walking distance of the town. The beds were very comfortable. Plenty to do within an hours drive of the property.
Ideal location within easy walking distance of Ludlow but very quiet at night. A good walking, cycling and touring base. Would definitely return, an excellent cottage.
One of the best cottages we have stayed in very clean and comfortable. The location was good within walking distance to the town centre.
What a lovely cottage! The property is extremely well equipped (and dog and toddler friendly too), with a south-facing patio. And it's in an ideal location for exploring the charming Medieval town of Ludlow on foot.
The cottage was lovely and had all the amenities of a working home. The owner came and met us on arrival and had ensured the heating was on so it was lovely and warm when we arrived.
The Yorkshire Rose
Excellent service from the booking agency and also the property owner, who made us feel very welcome. The property is very comfortable, contemporary and well designed and equipped. The amenities in Ludlow are superb; shopping is very good, excellent restaurants and cafes and the tourist attractions in particular the castle are superb. Ludlow is situated ideally for touring the Welsh borders as well as the lovely county of Shropshire. The cottage was a lovely base to come back to after sightseeing or after an evening out, its location isn't exactly rural and it is in a built up area but nevertheless the surrounding area can be seen from the cottage and it is extremely close to Ludlow centre.
A perfect holiday home, very comfortable and spacious, a lovely warm retreat to come back to. The contemporary decor and fittings made for a real calming atmosphere. Cottage well placed for visiting Ludlow and surrounds. Generally a well thought through holiday let with everything you need for a comfortable base.
Very convenient for town with good parking
Very good location. Convenient for exploring the local area. Comfortable and clean cottage.
We are pleased to report the cottage was exceptional. As a Chartered Surveyor I noted it had been renovated to an above average standard. We would certainly return. It is convenient for the town centre and has excellent parking. In a nutshell a very good weeks holiday!
