Posthorn Cottage, one of two adjoining properties occupying a secluded position in the heart of the town, offers an ideal base for exploring Ludlow and the surrounding area.

It is conveniently placed for all Ludlow’s attractions with shops, restaurants, cafes and places of interest such as the Castle, Market Square and St Laurence’s Church only a few minutes from the door.

We provide a free parking but, if you prefer to leave the car behind, bus routes and the train station are also within easy walking distance.

The cottage, which was renovated from a 17th Century grade 11 listed building, provides comfortable accommodation on three floors.

On the ground floor, a small entrance hall opens onto an oak-beamed staircase, with a dining/sitting room leading off to the right. This attractive room, which features a wood floor and open fireplace, overlooks the private patio area. It is furnished with dining table and chairs, easy chairs, radio/CD player and flat screen TV.

An attractive, well equipped kitchen leads off the dining room. Appliances include a full size electric cooker with extractor fan, washing machine and microwave.

Leading off the first floor landing are two bedrooms (one twin bedded and one double) and bathroom which is fitted with both bath and shower.

On the second floor, a small landing leads to a light airy sitting room which overlooks the roof tops towards Clee Hill in the distance. It is furnished with two comfortable modern sofas, occasional tables, DVD and flat screen TV.

The airing cupboard is also on the top floor; this is where cushions for the patio chairs and spare bedding and blankets are kept.

Outside: The private  patio area  is at the back of the cottage and is furnished with table and chairs.  We have recently introduced planters with a selection of fresh herbs which guests are welcome to use. Smoking is permitted outside; ashtrays are proved and can be found in the kitchen unit beneath the sink.
