About Philip Hume
Philip and Jenny live in the main house near to The Studio, so are on hand to help with any queries or advice on places to visit. Philip has researched, written and published a book on aspects of the history of the area. We moved to the area at the end of 2014 and are thoroughly enjoying exploring this beautiful and varied place.
Philip Hume purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Philip Hume chose Ludlow
We immediately fell in love with the secluded, peaceful, location of the property surrounded by woodland and birdsong. The countryside is beautiful, with a host of varied walking landscapes, fascinating historic remains and family visitor attractions. It offers the best of both worlds - rural tranquility with quick access to local market towns. Ludlow is a wonderful,lively place where there always seems to be something going on!
What makes this Cabin unique
We converted 'The Studio' from a painter's studio (hence the name!) into the holiday cottage as it is now. In doing so, we were seeking to maintain the lovely light that the artist had needed for his work and feel that we have succeeded in doing so. In order to do this, we have placed the bedrooms on the ground floor and the living area upstairs.

Deep in the countryside, with nothing but birdsong!
Lovely little place to get away from it all. Dog friendly, but no lawn and best to keep your babies on a lead. Place is a little tired and could do with some tlc, but it is so welcoming and so are the hosts. Milk, cheese, butter and scrummy cakes are left, so there’s no need to find a shop straight off. As well as all you need to make tea, or coffee etc.
Forgot to mention the lovely showers, one for each bedroom!
Make sure you photo the directions as we couldn’t access ours, when TomTom took us up the wrong road. No phone signal!!
Thank you xx
Tranquil county retreat perfect for dog owners.
The 'Studio' provided all we needed for a relaxing holiday. Within easy reach of Ludlow and several excellent National Trust properties and with several walks on the doorstep, the location is ideal. We particularly appreciated the sun-drenched veranda and the downstairs bedrooms which remained cool in the hot weather. The owners were very friendly and provided an excellent welcome pack of food items. Highly recommended, especially for dog owners.
WE ALL HAD A WONDERFUL TIME,AND WILL BE RETURNING. HAD EVERYTHING YOU NEED,BEAUTIFUL LOCATION ,WILDLIFE,FLOWERS AND TREES EVERYWHERE,WALKS STRAIGHT OUTSIDE THE DOOR. PHILIP AND JENNY WERE AT HAND IF YOU HAD OF NEEDED THEM. THE STUDIO IS COMFORTABLE, AND WELL THOUGHT OUT. AS A FAMILY WE WILL RETURN,THANK YOU TO YOU BOTH.
We had a wonderful week, tucked away in this birders paradise. We were greeted with homemade bread and biscuits, spread and almond milk, especially tailored to us being vegan - how thoughtful and generous of our hosts, even though their lives are anything but calm right now! We were lucky enough to see a family of bluetits fledging from a nest over our balcony, on our first day, fascinating! Woodpeckers, Jays, and many smaller birds to be seen. The cottage is a real home from home, with many extras included.(games, cds, dvds, puzzles, etc) Very peaceful and relaxing. In fact we spent 3 days just there, painting, reading and playing board games and cards, it was so beautiful. The town of Ludlow nearby is really lovely, we also went to Croft Castle, a National Trust property very close, well worth a visit and very dog friendly. And we went to Blists Hill, a 'living' museum at Iron Bridge, about an hour drive, but very well done and also welcomed dogs. (Note: We got a passport ticket (courtesy of Tesco vouchers!) which covered entrance to all 10 museums in the area, but only had time for Blists.)
A thoroughly happy and relaxing holiday.
Comfortable,beautiful setting,warm welcome
A great base for exploring a beautiful area.Walks from the door.
A quite unique and wonderful place, full of character and exuding an air of relaxation.
Stayed from 21st-25th May 2018 and had superb weather until the last day. The Studio is well equipped and unbelievably well situated.
The owners provided a thoughtful collection of goodies to enjoy and the comfort of their guests was obviously important to them.
The kitchen had everything that one could possibly require and the furniture was extremely comfortable, in particular the settees and the beds.
The only trivial fault l would comment on was a cotton bud from the previous owner left on my friend's en suite floor!
The showers are very efficient and easy to deal with.
Without hesitation l would stay here again and again. The livestock were a delight and added greatly to the enjoyment of the stay for me.
The location is perfect for Shropshire, Herefordshire and The Marches.
Set in woodland close to many walking trails in the heart of Mortimer Country, The Studio gives access to miles of forest and open countryside including the famous Shropshire Hills.
It is only ten minutes from historic Ludlow with its medieval castle, excellent food outlets and many festivals.
Lying in 'the Welsh Marches', the area has numerous castles, churches and historic houses - including two National Trust properties, five castles, and twelve or more historic churches all within 15 minutes drive.
There are many beautiful gardens to be visited and enjoyed.
In addition, the black and white villages of Herefordshire are only a short distance away. The historic city of Hereford lies half an hour away.
Local traditions are strongly maintained in the area with Morris dancing, wassailing and other rural spectacles still to be enjoyed.
Hay on Wye with its literary festival, the glories of Chirk castle, the mountains of central Wales, Worcester and the Malvern Hills, the Seven Valley Railway, the West Midlands Safari Park, the World Heritage Site of Iron Bridge Gorge, historic Shrewsbury are all no more than an hours drive away.
