Lovely holiday in The Manor House

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house with lots of outdoor space and activities, delightful well tended gardens. The house is well equipped with every need catered for. Emma & Chris were exceedingly helpful and friendly and made us very welcome. A charming place to stay and close to Ludlow.

Fantastic location for family celebration

  • 5 of 5

We'd stayed in the manor house a few years ago, so when we decided to gather the family together for a 60th birthday celebration week-end, we didn't hesitate about where to stay. And, just as before, we weren't disappointed. A wonderfully spacious house, very well equipped (many thanks to Emma for ensuring sufficient champagne flutes!), surrounded by beautiful gardens with fun play equipment. We just wished we'd booked for a longer stay!

Stunning county Manor House in beautiful grounds.

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything that we expected, booking was very straightforward and Emma the house keeper was great. We, that is my children and grandchildren had a great time celebrating my 70th birthday. There was plenty for all to do (as well as party) The kids enjoyed the facilities inside the house as well as outside, I enjoyed the 6 hole golf course with my grandson right on our doorstep. A trip into Ludlow is well worth the visit. Terrific down by the river and views of the castle are a bit special. Sunday lunch at the Charlton Arms (by river) is highly recommended. All in all a great place to relax in a beautiful part of the country .
