We are always being asked by our guests what they can do during their stay with us and a visit to Ludlow is always at the top of our list. It's just a 30 minute drive from the estate and the perfect place to spend a day. Here are just a few of our favourite things!
Coffee and cake at our favourite cafes
It is not secret that are a number of great cafes in Ludlow; something to suit everyone, they are the perfect pit-stop after a day exploring. It is hard to pick but two of our top spots are listed below:
Harp Lane Deli
On the weekend, you'll be lucky to get a seat but opt for a takeaway cup and head out to sit in the beautiful market square. Argueably the best coffee in town and paired with a portugese custard tart, you'll be more than happy.
The Green Cafe
The location and choice of baked goods is our reasoning for this one. Situated down the hill, by the river we definitley recommend a freshly basked cinnamon roll (Saturdays only) and a pot of tea.
Home to Ludlow's well known food festival in May and September, Ludlow Castle is a great place to explore for all of the family. A little step back in history with lots of history to explore; end your tour with a stop at the castle tearoom. Find out more here: http://www.ludlowcastle.com
Ludlow Food Centre
Ludlow Food Centre is must on your list of places to visit. A building full of the finest local produce, a lot of it is made and produced right on the estate. Pick up some recipe ingredients and cook up a storm back at your holiday home. Take a look at what they offer here: http://ludlowfoodcentre.co.uk/Content.aspx?ID=1
Ludlow also has an abundance of beautiful, independent local shops. Including places for clothing, homeware and gifts. Here are our top 3:
A women's boutique selling handpicked pieces from a range of brands.
A lovely, modern gift and home shop situated on Broad, a perfect place to pick up some holiday treats.
Holloways of Ludlow
