Peacefully tucked into the hillside with spectacular views over Ludlow and the surrounding farmland, this sympathetically restored barn is just perfect for family and friends to enjoy whatever the time of year.
Enjoy the best of both worlds, you may not wish to leave this peaceful hillside location on the edge of a beautiful forest, however you are just a very short distance from Ludlow, a thriving market town and an architectural gem, situated on a cliff above the River Teme and is surrounded by the countryside of South Shropshire, busy throughout the year with events and festivals celebrating good food, arts, crafts, theatre, walking and the showcase for this being the Ludlow Food and Drink Festival held every September. For keen walkers enjoy the Mary Webb trail, The Shropshire Way and Offa’s Dyke are both within easy reach and for day tripping take why not visit Stokesay castle, Wenlock Priory and Severn valley railway. The famous hay festival is only a 40 minute drive - a literary delight in May and June.
