If you're looking for a holiday which lets you truly feel a place then St John's Cottage is for you. If you have dreamed of a cosy, warm, magical place which wraps itself around you like a mother's blanket then step through the back door. I'm Australian. I've never had the chance to stay in a period property. This was all I could hope for and more.Read more In a great location, five minutes from the shopping street, one minute from an historic pub, you don't need a car. It's all on your doorstep! Hide

Excellent location and a small quaint cottage. Limited internal space especially in the bathroom and kitchen .great for weekends away and dining out but rather impractical for self catering .

This is a beautiful quaint & quirky cottage done up with high quality fittings - especially the little bathroom & is an absolute delight. The love & care that went into converting it shows in every aspect. The location could not be better, quiet & yet minutes away from the town centre.

quaint pretty cottage , let down by the view of the modern sheltered housing opposite and the garden center to rear. bathroom very cramped.

Reviewed by Pauline, 23rd June 2017

The cottage was lovely, and very quirky, everything was to hand, but we found going downstairs at night to use the toilet was difficult, as we are 60 and 65 respectively, the stairs are quite steep and not carpeted. We did enjoy our stay, and everything apart from the shower was perfect.

We really enjoyed our five night stay in this lovely little cottage.

A beautiful old cottage, superbly located just outside the old town walls of Ludlow so very close (within walking distance) of several pubs and restaurants. Very cosy and in a quiet side street, prepare to duck at times for the low ceiling beams but that is part of its charm. Highly recommend St Johns cottage.
