This is our second stay and as before we really enjoyed it .Especially welcome was the central heating which meant the cottage was warm on arrival. Everything you need for a lovely short stay.
Beautiful Cottage with potentially beautiful garden
Ludlow is a gorgeous little town and our cottage was centrally located just outside the town centre. It was spotlessly clean, but lacking some kitchen items that were probably there at one time--such as something that could be used as a salad bowl. Recycling requirements in Shropshire are stringent, but other than directions of which of the bins to use for which items, there were no in-house bins to put food waste, paper and plastic, or glass. We made use of stuff in the kitchen to load those up and dutifully recycled, but it would have been nice if there had been items fit for purpose in the kitchen.
The bathroom was lovely, but the shower enclosure gasket leaks and water can puddle on the floor unless it is perfectly positioned. This could cause a potential longterm problem--there is some evidence of water damage around the doorway. However, we simply put a towel on the floor and that took care of the issue for the duration of our stay.
The garden, to which we had access, could be gorgeous and very useable, but it is overgrown and not very appealing. This was a comment made by numerous guests who signed the guest book. It is a real shame because the weather was beautiful during our stay and it would have been nice to use the garden.
The guest guide is out of date--there are no launderettes left in Ludlow and some instructions were for establishments long gone. I would recommend that it be updated.
In the long run we had a wonderful stay in the cottage and the issues I have raised above did not mar our enjoyment. However, as a somewhat expensive place to stay, it might behoove the owner to address them. We would stay there again in a second, especially if the garden were given some TLC!
Thanks for your comments. I'm glad you had a good time in Ludlow. Sorry you couldn't find the salad bowl - it was there all along! I'm not sure what other items you feel the kitchen lacks - we are always complemented on how well equipped it is so we'd really appreciate more feedback on this. Recycling in South Shropshire is not stringent at all. We put it all in the same boxes. I take your point, however, that a box somewhere in the kitchen might be useful, as long as it doesn't get in the way. It is a shame that we recently lost our one and only laundrette and for not updating the guide book I'm very sorry. The garden does deserve a bit of love I agree but fruit laden trees and blowsy roses are also part of the secluded charm we are trying to create.
