From the property you are within walking distance of Ludlow’s centre with a glut of local food producers and eateries, local artisans selling their bespoke wares as well as a weekly food market which is not to be missed. This vibrant town offers a year-round events calendar celebrating food, crafts and theatre with the showcase for this being the Food Festival in September. If you are after some outdoor adventure, put on your hiking boots and walk from the door into the stunning Whitecliffe Common or Mortimer Forest, or in the warmer weather take a swim in the River Teme. If you have time to escape this vibrant town, there’s much to see further afield, Stokesay Castle, Wenlock Priory and Severn Valley Railway.
