Beautiful cottage with quirky decoration that complimented its age and character perfectly. Only a couple of minutes walk from Ludlow's shops and eateries with stunning walks along the river and around Ludlow Castle, dog friendly pubs in abundance and the town's history proudly on display, our stay in St John's Cottage was everything we had hoped iRead moret would be. Thank you to Patricia for all her advice and for sharing this wonderful place with us. Hide

Really cosy and quirky cottage. Excellent location and very comfortable accommodation. Ludlow is favourite destination and this cottage was a quiet retreat yet within 2 minutes of the market square. Would recommend The Wheatsheaf at the end of the lane and The Tavern just around the corner on Old Street. Patricia was very communicative and helpful.Read more Would love to return if available Hide

It was a beautiful and cosy Stuart period property. Perfectly located for the historic town centre. The hosts were generous and informative. The church is delightful and the castle worth a visit. Lots of lovely walks and pubs. Well worth a stay.

We had a lovely time at St John's Cottage, and Ludlow. The cottage is a delightful property with all you need in a great location. Ludlow is a wonderful town and everything is within walking distance. A nice little back courtyard, very safe and secure for our small dog and a glass of prosecco in the evening. Ps, we had the hottest week of the year Read moreso far. Hide

We have had one of the best stays in England ever in this quaint little cottage with our puppy Cookie. It has been decorated to an incredible standard with such little space the owner Patricia has done so much. You can tell its a Labour of love.
