Restored to the highest standards, this Grade II listed cottage is situated in a conservation area near the medieval Broad Gate. Much of the original character of the building (exposed beams and brick and timber framework) remains and is combined with tasteful furnishings and colour schemes. The cottage is only a few minutes' walk both from the centre of Ludlow, with its Norman castle, and from the River Teme, where footpaths lead over Whitcliffe, Ludlow's common land since the 13th century.

Often described as the perfect historic town, Ludlow has nearly 500 listed buildings and the early medieval street pattern survives almost intact. Of particular note are St. Laurence's church and the Feathers Hotel, with its ornate timber-framed facade. The annual Ludlow Festival, the highlight of which is an open-air Shakespeare play in the Castle grounds, is held in late June/early July. In September there is a Food & Drink festival and in November a Medieval Fair. Ludlow is a market town and has a fine range of shops (including antiques, books, art and crafts), tea rooms and restaurants.

Within easy reach of the town are many historic sites. These include Stokesay Castle, (English Heritage) Croft Castle, and Berrington Hall (both National Trust) and the Ironbridge Gorge, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Offa's Dyke, the Long Mynd, the Malvern Hills, the Wye Valley, Shrewsbury, Hereford and Worcester are within an hour's drive. Further afield, The Cotswolds, Wales and Stratford-upon-Avon may also be reached by car.

Garden Cottage has been awarded a Visit England 4 Star Grading.

What our guests say

Brilliant cottage

We loved our time in this old cottage. It is beautifully situated, within a short walk of lots of scenic walks in one direction and close to all the foodie shops and restaurants in the other. The cottage itself is comfortable and very well equipped. It also has a lovely garden - ideal for relaxing after sightseeing. We expect to return!

A great base for a walking (and eating and drinking) holiday

Stayed here 4 times now and it remains a lovely little cottage just outside one of the old gates into Ludlow - still only a 7 minute walk to the market place in the centre of town. It's located on a quiet residential street and has all the functionality you need for a stress-free stay. Will be back for a fifth time next year.

Our fourth stay here and it continues to delight. Absolutely spot-on. A great base for a walking (and eating and drinking) holiday. Many thanks

A splendid week in a perfect holiday cottage - snug, comfortable and perfectly "of its place". I do hope you will see us return in the summer! Warmest wishes and thanks.

A delightful cottage - beautifully equipped and spotlessly clean - perfect to explore Ludlow and the surrounding countryside. Bistro 7 was our favourite restaurant with lovely food and friendly service. Unexpectedly good weather was the icing on the cake!

Helen & Paul, June 2016.

Wonderful cottage, in a fabulous town, surrounded by the most beautiful countryside - all in all - perfect. Thank you.

Ian & Jane, May 2016

What a special piece of paradise this cottage is.

The Rayner Family, September 2013

The cottage is in a great location on Lower Broad Street - within easy walking distance of all the main attractions in Ludlow. We loved the fact that the cottage dates back to the 13th century (there was a very interesting book about the history of Broad Street in the cottage) so was very quaint and pretty but also tastefully modernised and furnished and equipped to a very high standard.
