Four superb cottages in a secluded valley enabling you to truly relax and get away from it all. Fully inclusive prices. A place to return to.

We are located between the historic market towns of Ludlow (8 miles) and Much Wenlock (12 miles).

South Shropshire is fantastic walking and cycling country and you can easily start your day's exercise from your doorstep at Goosefoot. We have maps and guide books that you are welcome to borrow during your stay. Whether you are walking, cycling or driving, the area has some truly superb and extremely diverse scenery from the renowned Shropshire Hills and the bleaker terrain of Clee Hill to the lush riverside meadovvs by the Teme or the Sevem. The small market towns of Ludlow, Much Wenlock, Craven Arms, Bridgnorth and Bishops Castle also have much to offer to the shopper and the architectural or historical buff!
Ludlow in particular is worth a day to itself. Notwithstanding the impressive St Laurences Parish Church (deemed one of the 20 best in England), within an area which is becoming increasingly renowned for its food, this small town (pop 12000) stands out. There are four independent butchers and other food and drink is well represented, particularly on market days. There are restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets, including two with Michelin stars.
In September of each year, in the grounds of Ludlow Castle the Ludlow Marches Food and Drink Fair which celebrates the best of food and drink with an emphasis on local produce. The Castle also hosts the Ludlow Festival with Shakespeare Plays, Classical and Pop music, Comedians, Writers and the Grand Firework Finale.
