A beautiful, cosy cottage with real attention to detail in the charming decor. Ludlow is a wonderful, historic town with lots nearby to explore and so many yummy places to eat. We went in the during a cold October week but it was plenty warm enough with the heating on.

This is one of the loveliest cottages that my fiancee and me have stayed in. It's very small and very old which makes it perfect for a couple. Has a lovely comfy bed and great little kitchen. The owner is a wonderful person who we had great contact with, she left us wine, beer and snacks for our arrival. Highly recommend st John's.

St John's Cottage is a real gem, hidden away in a quiet lane in proximity to the town centre. The charming cottage has been lovingly decorated and equipped with quality amenities. It has been our experience that many rental properties contain the owner's cast off furniture and not-so-good household items, but this is not the case at St John's. EverRead moreything is top quality! It was a joy and a pleasure to stay there. Hide

Lovely, albeit tiny, cottage with lots of period features. Great location, quiet street yet 5 minute walk to town centre and a decent foodie dog friendly pub 2 mins walk. Owner was very helpful and kind and left lots of little goodies for us and our dog. Much appreciated and a lovely touch.
